Aromatic

 

7     Estate Riesling 2011, Schloss Schonborn, Rheingau, Germany         £33

Very pale straw in colour, this offers very pretty floral notes on the nose, allied to a stony

finish.

 

 

8     Gavi di Gavi 2014, Fratelli Levis, Piedmont, Italy                                    £34

Wine is the lifeblood of the quiet town of Gavi, nestled snugly in the South Eastern corner

which are ideal for the production of white grapes.  Fratelli Levis’ Gavi di Gavi is pretty

and perfumed with notes of orchard fruit.

structure, the velvety mouth feel is complemented by complex notes of pear, green apple,

           acacia and almond.

15   Luna Pinot Grigio, Cecilia Beretta 2014, Veneto, Italy                           £29

The Cecilia Beretta family estate has been a centre for advanced agricultural studies since

with ripe citrus fruit and a subtle minerality.

           smooth, creamy texture.

 

 

17   Ana 2014, Eradus Estate, Marlborough, New Zealand                             £35

Named after the winemaker’s second daughter, this is an upfront Sauvignon with an

abundance of freshly cut grass, ripe gooseberry and zesty lemon fruit.

 

 

18   Nelson Estate, Sauvignon Blanc, Paarl, South Africa                             £34

           This wine shows crisp acidity, well balanced by ripe greengage and pineapple fruit, very

           refreshing and a great wine to pair with fish.

 

 

19   Sancerre 2014, Domaine de la Grande Maison, Loire                               £46

           Bright, pale lemon colour.  Delicate aromas span fresh pear, citrus and white flowers.  The

           hints of gunflint on the finish.

In the far North Eastern corner of Spain, the Albarino grape flourishes despite the

unpredictable weather.  This aromatic white from the Adegas Galegas winery is typical of

Rias Biaxas: rich, but elegant with a characteristic, tropical peachy note.

 

 

 

Domaine Vincent Dampt

 

Vincent Dampt is one of Chablis’ rising stars.  The youngest generation of an impressive Chablis

lineage, Vincent is the son of Daniel Dampt and grandson of Jean Defaix, both admired Chablis

producers.  Respectful of family tradition, Vicnent is nonetheless determined to build his own

reputation.  Mild-mannered on the surface, Vincent is fiercely passionate about wine and the Chablis

terroir, yet open to new ideas and methods in his pursuit of quality.

 

 

12   Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru 2014, Vincent Dampt, Burgundy                   £59

           This is Vincent Dampt’s expression of premier cru Vaillons; owning vines in 5 of the 8 sub-

           climats of Chablis allow Vincent to capture the true style of the appellation.  With citrus,

           orchard fruit and a perfect balance of sea-shell minerality and rich creaminess, this

           Chablis has everything to offer.

 

 

14   Eradus Pinot Gris 2014, Marlborough, New Zealand                                £35

Stylistically Pinot Gris is very versatile and, until you have tasted it, hard to predict.  The

majority of growers look to produce a dry style but they reduce the yields to improve the

 body and complexity of the finished wine.  This wine is dominated by rich peach and pear

fruit and overall balance is maintained by a crisp appley acidity.

 

 

30  Meursault Clos du Cromin 2012, Olivier Leflaive, Burgundy            £86

           Clos du Cromin is a small, walled vineyard producing classic Meursault wines.  Rich and

Full Bodied & Powerful

27  Heywood Estate Shiraz 2014, South East Australia                                  £29

Grown from old Shiraz vines in the town of Rivernia, New South Wales, this is a full fruited

wine bursting with blackcurrant and plum notes with more subtle hints of spice and black

pepper. Every vintage has a small proportion of wine that has been aged in oak barrels to

           add complexity without overpowering the fruit.

 

 

 

Achaval Ferrer

 

In 1998, a group of Italians and Argentinians joined forces, to realize a then, extremely

ambitiousdream- the creation of world class Argentinian wine. From the outset, the aim of

Achaval-Ferrer was not only to produce exceptional quality but also to remain faithful

to the wines’ origins. This is fundamental to the company’s philosophy which echoes the ideals

of all our major principles in that the vineyard itself is seem as fundamental to the very essence

of the finished wine.
