Our wine-buyer’s choice of serious grown-up, top notch wines, for a little bit of vinous luxury
FRANCE Touraine Chenonceaux 2018 ‘ La Long Bec’, Domaine des Echardieres
Loire Sauvignon par-excellence from the new Chenonceaux appellation: ripe, complex gooseberry and redcurrant fruit overlay steely minerality: seriously classy and a real Sancerre-beater
S. AFRICA The Foundry, Grenache Blanc, 2019
Stunning wine that regularly gets 5 star ratings: lifted floral aromas with lemon cream hints and white stone fruits; rich but restrained with focussed pure fruit, a minerally mid palate and rich fleshy texture.
ITALY Villa Rubini Organic Friulano, 2018
Ripe and aromatic wine made from the signature grape of NE Italy – hints of lychee and stone fruits overlay a rich but well balance palate and a lingering finish
FRANCE Vacqueyras 2017, Bastide St Vincent
Classic Southern Rhone Red, with smooth, smoky black fruit, garrigue and baked earth on the nose. The black fruits carry through to the palate with date and fig hints on the finish
SPAIN Rioja Crianza 2015, Xtreme Ecologico, Bodegas LAN
One of our fave new wines last year: intense cranberry, prune and apricot aromas, intense red fruits intertwined with spicy cinnamon and vanilla flavours, full bodied, velvety smooth but retaining lovely freshness.
ITALY Hebo 2017, Petra, Suvereto, Toscana
Another champion in Delilah last year, a beautiful ‘super-Tuscan’ blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Sangiovese: a big bold wine that nevertheless remains fresh and savoury with black cherry violet and blueberry fruit, and well-knit tannins. Simply stunning.
