"Imagine a wine which combines the minerality of Chablis, the aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc and
the crispness of Pinot Grigio. All this combined is what Gruner Veltliner is all about. Its versatility
with food is amazing; from seafood platters to chicken wrapped in parma ham.
On the palate there's a jungle of flavours from green peppers to juicy apples which makes this Austrian delight a satisfying sip from start to finish. "
Never judge a book by its cover', but that's exactly what I did. The bold contemporary label grabbed me the moment I saw it and I've never looked back. Full bodied Smooth and plummy (without being too 'jammy'), full of black fruit flavours, chocolate notes and a pleasant peppery hit. This huge Californian Zinfandel is a perfect partner to spicy foods (my guilty pleasure being a bottle with a pepperoni pizza.) It benefits greatly from a couple of hours breathing before drinking.
"In regions with so many small growers, it's a great advantage to work with such an excellent co-operative. The quality of the fruit shines through in this bright and elegant Chablis, with its gentle minerality and depth of refreshing citrus flavours. The slight smokiness will develop beautifully if you can restrain yourself and keep this in bottle a while longer, but for now it's a beautifully bright and balanced Chablis that's ideal with shellfish. "
"Traditional Rioja is at its best with a few years age, and this is a textbook example of a Reserva style with just the right amount of maturity that shows itself on the palate.
There's a coconut note alongside soft red fruit character, in perfect balance. This would be delicious with tender herbed lamb and mushrooms, or try with duck."
