Botter Prosecco Spumante NV (1x 75cl)

They say that a good wine needs time to reveal its qualities, but it also needs dedication and constant commitment. Few products can embody so much expertise and thousands of years of history as those made by Botter. It has passed through the careful hands of three generations for whom wine was a passion as well as a trade. They have responded to the constantly evolving market over time, in a process of ongoing expansion.

The grapes for this Prosecco are picked in the second half of September.

The soft pressed must is stored in steel tanks for static cold decanting. The fermentation with selected yeasts is carried out at a controlled temperature of 18 °C and takes 8-10 days. After a storage period, the winemaker ensures the expected level of quality is achieved for this Prosecco Spumante cuvée. The wine is then filtered and stored in steel tanks with the addition of sucrose and selected yeasts for the second fermentation (Martinotti-Charmat method) at a controlled temperature of 14-15 °C. Once the wine has reached the required pressure levels, alcohol and sugar content, the wine is refrigerated and cold stabilized. It is filtered before bottling.

The Botter Prosecco Spumante has a crisp and delicate perlage. There is a pale light yellow colour, alongside a delicate and complex bouquet with fruity notes that are reminiscenrt of peach, green apple with second notes of acacia and wisteria. It is fresh and light on the palate, with balanced acidity and body; it proves itself to be harmonic with a long persistent aftertaste.

Ideal as an aperitif, it is a perfect combination to hors-d’oeuvres and delicate first courses. Also wonderful with sushi, fish and shellfish.

Cantina Cleto Chiarli Pruno Nero, Lambrusco Di Grasparossa di Castelvetro NV (1x75cl)

Deep ruby red in colour with an aromatic nose, strongly reminiscent of fresh strawberries. The palate is richly soft, generously fruity and delightfully refreshing, offering ripe, concentrated red berry fruits such as cranberries, raspberries and strawberries, a fine, persistent mousse and a soft finish. Low acidity and very little tannin combine to create a deliciously fruit driven, thirst quenching wine.

Casa Bianchi Brut Traditional Method NV (1x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their October 2016 edition review of Argentina (see blue link below).

Casa Bianchi Brut Traditional Method NV - October 2016 Decanter review

The Bianchi family winery was founded in 1928 by Italian immigrant Valentin Bianchi It now covers 350 hectares of vineyard, situated 750m above sea level in San Rafael, about 240km south of Mendoza city. This is a cooler area than Mendoza's major vineyard areas of Luján de Cuyo and Agrelo because it is further south, which helps the flavours and perfumes develop more gradually, resulting in more aromatic wines. The estate is now run by the third generation of the family and has undergone a gradual transformation in the past few years, modernising both the winery and the vinification processes. 

The grapes for the Bianchi Brut come from the Doña Elsa and Las Paredes vineyards, which are situated in the San Rafael zone of Mendoza at 730 to 790 metres above sea level.

60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir.

The grapes for this sparking wine were vinified in the purpose-built, sparkling wine facility constructed by Bianchi outside San Rafael. The wine is made according to the 'Traditional Method' of sparkling wine production. The must is fermented between 16° and 18°C. After fermentation it is aged on its lees for a further 12 months before disgorgement and release.

Bianchi Brut is an excellent value sparkling wine with an intense biscuit and fruit character on the nose and good richness on the palate. Fresh and clean, it finishes dry.

Castillo Perelada Cava Brut Reserva NV (1x75cl)

The Perelada estate, an impressive fortress and palace that was previously owned by the Counts of Pereleda and a Carmelite monastery, was purchased in 1923 by Miguel Mateu, an active political and cultural ambassador of the time. Don Miguel revitalized the wine producing tradition of the estate records showed that there where vineyards planted in the Medieval period. He turned the estate into his own private cultural centre, building up the collections which would become the Castle museum which is today open to the public.

A blend of the three traditional Cava making grapes: Parellada (35%), Xarel·lo (45%), Macabeo (30%).

After primary fermentation, the wine is aged in bottle on the lees for 15 months before disgorging. Brilliant pale yellow colour with a generous stream of fine bubbles. The nose is clean and fruity with light yeasty notes from ageing. It is pleasantly bone dry, with a round and refreshing mouthfeel and nice flavour complexity.

See the link below for full details of the wine, in Parelada's own data sheet.

Fontanafredda Asti DOCG NV (1x 75cl)

The Fontanafredda estate was bought in 1858 by Vittorio Emanuele II as a gift to his mistress Rosa Vercellana, also known as "La bela Rosin". Later, it was handed down to their children, Maria Vittoria and Emanuele Alberto, Count of Mirafiori and Fontanafredda. After several changes of ownership Fontanafredda is once again in the hands of Piedmont natives. In 2017 Fontanafredda was named “European Winery of the Year” by the prestigious American magazine Wine Enthusiast.

Relying on the most advanced models for sustainable agriculture (organic, integrated and biodynamic), they have adopted the agricultural disciplinary guidelines of Vino Libero which defines the vineyard-cultivation techniques they use whilst striving to both reduce the environmental impact and safeguard human health.

Gonzalez Byass Vilarnau Rosado NV (1x 75cl)

Vilarnau Cava is made in a state of the art winery, with sleek minimalist design. The estate lies 250 metres above sea level, enjoying a Mediterranean climate. It is shielded by the Montserrat Mountains to the north and the Littoral range to the south. The winery is located close to the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. Specialising in small-scale, artisan production of exclusive, high quality cavas, the winery shares its innovative, creative and dynamic nature with Spain’s most avant-garde city.

The red Trepat and Pinot Noir grapes macerate at 8°C for 18 hours in contact with the skins so as to extract the maximum colour and aromas. In these varieties the precursors of the aroma are found primarily in the skin. By tchilling the grapes they manage to protect these precursors which will later turn into the primary aromas that are characteristic of this wine, namely floral and ripe red fruit. After maceration, the must which is already pink is crushed. This is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 14°C. The wine is then blended and bottled with the second fermentation taking place in bottle over a period of around 6 weeks at a constant temperature of 15°C.  This cava remains in contact with the yeast for at least 15 months. 

This cava is an intense pink colour with great aromatic complexity and it reflects the Mediterranean character of the area where it is made. With plenty of sunlight the grapes here ripen more fully, thus developing greater colour and aromartic complexity than is perhaps expected.

Trepat and Pinot Noir grapes give this delicious pink fizz a bright redcurrant colour, and vibrant ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit characters. Aged for 18 months prior to disgorgement, it is soft and juicy in character with refreshing balanced acidity – the perfect aperitif.

Kaiken Método Tradicional Brut NV (1x 75cl)

Kaikenes are wild geese, native to Patagonia, that fly across the Andes between Chile and Argentina. Montes, the Chilean winery, crossed the Andes in the same way to set up in Mendoza. Their vineyards are situated in the heart of Mendoza and further to the south in Valle de Uco, where many of the premium producers are now sourcing their fruit. The focus is primarily on Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, a variety that has been somewhat forgotten as Malbec has surfed one wave of success after another in the past decade. Kaiken's own vineyards supply 70% of their production requirements and 30% is from vineyards that they control.

The Pinot Noir (70% of the assemblage here) and Chardonnay (30%) grapes are sourced from a vineyard situated at 1400 metres above sea level in the Gualtallary sub-region of the renowned Uco Valley. This is one of the highest zones in Mendoza and is famed for producing fresh yet balanced fruit, perfect for sparkling wine production.

The grapes were hand-picked into 10 kilogram boxes and only the healthiest grapes were hand-selected. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed and the juice was then cold settled for 48 hours. Fermentation took place at a temperature of 10ºC to produce a high quality base wine. For the second fermentation, the wine was bottle-fermented for 30 days and left on the lees for a full two years to enhance its structure and complexity before disgorgement.

This wine is very bright in appearance, with a subtle golden hue and small, elegant bubbles in the glass. The nose offers aromas of green apple and pear alongside buttery notes, toast and a hint of almond. Refreshing with remarkable balance and vibrant acidity, it has a persistent finish. <Residual sugar is 9g/litre, so at the sweeter end of Brut>.

At this price, this represents fantastic value among traditional method sparkling wines.

Laurent Perrier La Cuvee Non Vintage Quarter Bottle(1x 20cl)

This wine comes from the purest grape juice and it alone allows Laurent-Perrier to craft ‘La Cuvée’,  a champagne of great finesse and a beautiful freshness obtained after a long ageing process in their cellars. Laurent-Perrier’s style and personality are defined by its very high proportion of Chardonnay. Purity, freshness and elegance – essential characteristics, expressed in this champagne – are a good introduction to the spirit of the House.

In opting to blend its Brut champagne with a majority of Chardonnay, the rarest grape variety in the Champagne region, Laurent-Perrier was expressing its difference and asserting the signature ‘House’ style of freshness, lightness, and elegance. This has taken 15 years of extensive work on supply quality, steady progress regarding wine making and increased mastery of the art of blending.

This champagne is made using a majority of Chardonnay, over 50%, Pinot Noir, over 30% and is rounded off with Meunier, between 10 and 20%. Some of the wine that is used to make La Cuvée is reserve wine which ensures a perfect consistency in style. This blend of Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée is made from more than 100 crus selected by Laurent-Perrier. La Cuvée benefits from ageing in the cellar. Its balance and freshness are enhanced by a light dosage.

This champagne is pale gold in colour. Fine bubbles feed a persistent mousse. A delicate nose with hints of fresh citrus and white flowers. Its complexity is expressed in successive notes like vine peach and white fruits notes. There is a perfect balance between freshness and delicacy with fruity flavours present on the finish.

This fresh and pure champagne is perfect as an apéritif. Its citrus and white fruits notes and its remarkable balance supported by a subtle effervescence, make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry and the finest fish.

Ruggeri Prosecco Argeo Brut NV (1x75cl)

BRONZE MEDAL, International Wine Challenge 2014

"My current number-one fizz for under £10 a bottle (if bought by the case). A mouthwatering Prosecco with a lemon-sherbet edge and delectable hint of clover honey, but almost dry finish. Only 11 per cent alcohol, too". Susy Atkins, Sunday Telegraph, 3rd July 2011

"Smooth and bright, with zesty citrus and apricot touches at the back. Easy-going and simple, but balanced and well made." Decanter Panel Tasting - Prosecco Experts Choice, July 2013

"Ruggeri - hands down, this is one of the top five Prosecco producers", Decanter, July 2013

The Ruggeri winery was established in 1950 by Giustino Bisol, whose family boasts a deeply rooted, centuries-old tradition in viticulture in the Valdobbiadene area.  The winery was established in Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene to produce and promote the sparkling Prosecco Superiore and Cartizze wines. It was originally housed in small premises in the village of Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene. After a temporary move to a larger site in the centre of the village, in the early Nineties it was relocated to new, larger and more rational premises which can receive and process almost 3,000 tons of grapes which are brought there every harvest. Today the winery is run by Paolo Bisol, who is assisted by his children Giustino and Isabella.

The Prosecco Superiore DOCG grapes are usually delivered by over a hundred vine-growers. Nearly all of them have their vineyards in the municipality of Valdobbiadene, while 25 also grow Cartizze grapes. It should be noted that many of the superior vineyards lie in the historic districts of San Pietro di Barbozza. Santo Stefano and Saccol, which have always been renowned for producing the best in terms of quality. Ruggeri owns a small vineyard of Cartizze and 20 hectares on the nearby Montello, 12 of them are cultivated with Pinot Grigio and Glera (traditionally called Prosecco). About 1 hectare is dedicated to the growing of Recantina, an ancient and authochtonous red grape variety which was recovered thanks to the hard work of cooperation with the Istituto Sperimentale Per la Viticoltura di Conegliano (School of Viticulture of Conegliano).

Bisol Jeio Prosecco Valdobbiadene Brut NV (1x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their January 2019 edition panel tasting  review of Prosecco Superiore/Conegliano Valdobbiadene (see blue link below).

Bisol Jeio Prosecco Valdobbiadene Brut NV - January 2019 Decanter review

In each bottle of Bisol Prosecco Superiore, the traditions of a family that has tended its vines in the Valdobbiadene area since 1542 are combined with the history of a landscape whose generosity is only matched by the difficulty of cultivating its steep, rocky hills. Each Bisol Prosecco Superiore has its own, unique identity which varies depending on the nature of the specific terroirs in which the grapes are grown. After all, the Glera grape, from which this type of wine is made, is particularly sensitive to variations in the soil and microclimate.

The minerality of the Conegliano hills combines with the characteristically delicate acidity of the Valdobbiadene terroir to inject life into Jeio Brut, a Prosecco Superiore that invigorates the palate. 

With its fresh personality and decisive notes of golden apple, citrus, and spring blossom, this is the perfect wine for drinking throughout a whole meal. It also makes a superb companion to a round of sophisticated hors d’oeuvres.
