Te Mata Estate Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc
Origin: Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand
Grape Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Palest lemon green, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc ’17 is all about texture, refreshment and refinement. Grapefruit and lime juice on the nose, with notes of white flowers, quince and cardamom, the wine expands into fennel, currants, elderflower, pears, honey and sweet nectarine on the palate. Ripe sub-tropical fruit is balanced by a long, dry finish with a crisp edge and a floral, delicate lift.
Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Blanc 2015
Origin: Burgundy, France
GrapeVarietal: 100% Chardonnay
The elegant nose exudes fruity and floral notes. The palate of this Mercurey offers a harmonious structure and leaves a pleasant sensation of freshness. An easy drinking wine that is ideal served either as an aperitif or with a meal.
Lagrange Pomerol 2015
Origin: Bordeaux, France
Grape Varietal: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Following on from Gruaud,
this sample does not seem so expressive on the nose at first, despite the wine’s vibrant crimson appearance. Given time in the glass though, it soon reveals some light, pretty, perfumed fruit with a floral edge. Rather a touch of cream at the start on the palate, with a supple and slightly fat feel to it in the middle, with charcoaly-grainy tannins coming in.
Amelia Park Reserve Shiraz 2013
Origin: Frankland River, Australia
Grape Varietal: 100% Shiraz
Black fruits and spice leap from the glass, filling the bouquet; the palate is intense and powerful, yet remains light on its feet; black cherry, plum and licorice fill the mouth with persistent flavour; its lightness is due to silky tannins.
Domaine Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru ‘Aux Vignerondes’ 2014
Origin: Burgundy, France 1er Cru ‘Aux Vignerondes’
Grape Varietal: 100% Pinot Nar
Violet and blackcurrant notes mark this intense, brooding red. The vivid acidity creates tension, while the dense tannins provide a matrix of support.
