Alois Lageder Moscato Giallo Vogelmeier 2015 (1x75cl)

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Alois Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis.

The vines, farmed biodynamically since 2004, enjoy a long and sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Alois’ wines are finely chiselled, with real definition and immense charm too.

The natural conditions of Alto Adige are expressed in fresh, precise wines and are particularly suited to Moscato Giallo. That is due, above all, to the location of the Vogelmaier vineyard in a small side valley on Lake Caldaro, ventilated by cool downslope winds at night. As a dry wine, the grape variety develops its typical aromatics, offering a pleasing contrast between sweet aroma and fresh finish. 

The grapes for this wine are crushed, pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Maturation lasts approximately 6 months on the lees. Fresh, clean aromas and flavours of elderflower, peaches and pears are dominant in this wine. It is medium-bodied with a dry, long lasting aftertaste.

Crisp, minerally wine with very fine aromas of apples, peaches and lemon. The palate is light and refreshing with lithe citrus and peach fruit cut by bright acidity and a streak of minerality. Very fresh and elegant in style.

This wine is suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.

Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomiti IGT 2015 (12x 75cl)

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Alois Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis.

The vines, farmed biodynamically since 2004, enjoy a long and sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Alois’ wines are finely chiselled, with real definition and immense charm too.

Pinot Grigio, also called Grauburgunder or Pinot Gris, is currently the most commonly cultivated white wine variety in Alto Adige. The sites subject to Mediterranean influences around Magrè and Salorno have predominantly chalky soils with a high sand and gravel content and are perfect for cultivating this grape variety from the noble Pinot family.

Brilliant straw yellow with a green shimmer. Quite pronounced and expressive aroma with flowery and somewhat spicy notes. Rich flavoured in the mouth with a slight smokiness at the back and a good, fresh finish.

These wines are suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.

Battle Of Bosworth Chardonnay 2015 (1x75cl)

Battle of Bosworth is one of the most exciting producers from the McLaren Vale, owing its fame to a series of outstanding single-vineyard wines made from estate-grown fruit. Owner, Joch Bosworth, is regarded as a brilliant organic farmer as well as a top class winemaker, and the Bosworth vineyards are among the most beautiful we have ever seen. Joch plays down his impeccable green credentials, arguing that he is doing nothing new: ‘A lot of what we do in the vineyard is simply old-fashioned grape growing; essentially, our vineyards are run as they would have been 50 years ago before synthetic pesticides and fertilizers became available.’

A pretty little flower called the soursob is Joch’s partner in crime to combat weeds. So important is the soursob that it features on the Battle of Bosworth labels, too.

"Fancy winemaking for our Bosworth Chardonnay; pressed straight to the very best French barrels from a variety of coopers, all of them expensive. The wine goes through a natural ferment; that is we don’t seed it with any commercial yeast but rely upon the natural yeast from the vineyard to start the process. The wine stays on high solids (sur lie) which helps to add subtle textural characters. High solids means we don’t rack off the old yeast cells but allow the wine to sit there in and amongst them."

The Battle of Bosworth Chardonnay has a complex nose of hazelnut, stonefruit skins and the merest hint of shotgun. The palate shows white stone fruit and some citrus characters. It is a medium-bodied full favoured delicious wine.

Bucci Verdicchio Classico Riserva 2013 (1x 75cl)

Celler Credo Miranius 2014 (6 x 75cl)

Credo Miranius 2014 - May 2017 Decanter review

‘Miranius’, apparently, is a clever fox who ventures into the Celler Credo vineyards and is "delighted by the sweet aromas of the grapes".

The white wine Miranius is made exclusively with grapes from vineyards owned by Celler Credo in the county of Alt Penedès (Barcelona). All of the vineyards have been cultivated in accordance with the principles of organic, biodynamic agriculture. Celler Credo’s vineyards let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover plays a crucial role, loosening the soil, regulating water retention and drainage and helping to foster biodiversity and maintain a balance in the vineyard ecosystem.  Natural treatments based on medicinal plants (phytotherapy) are applied to the vines to control the presence of fungus and strengthen the vine’s defences in a natural way. All Celler Credo grapes are harvested by hand to ensure the excellent quality of the fruit. All wines are produced and bottled on the property.

Miranius is a lively young wine that is very vibrant and ages well in the bottle. It is made mainly from the Mediterranean variety Xarel·lo, with subtle notes of Macabeu. Miranius has strong varietal character with crisp acidity and a good palate. To achieve this, the producer works with very low production volumes in their vineyards, taking great care over ripening with the aim of producing wines with natural, fresh acidity. This wine may contain natural sediments.

Cesconi Nosiola 2014 (1x 75cl)

Light straw in colour, the 2010 Nosiola is clean and fresh, with lovely intensity and depth, offset by a bright, youthful quality. On the nose it is clean and delicate, with aromas of white flowers and green fruits, which give way to a dry, minerally palate and a delicate almond finish.

Chateau Musar Jeune White 2015 (1x 75cl)

Musar Jeune White was first produced in 2006 with newly planted varieties, Vermentino (40%), Viognier (30%) and Chardonnay (30%) – expressing vibrant fruit flavours of grapes from young Bekaa Valley vines. The 2015 vintage was harvested in August, Chardonnay was the first to arrive at the winery on the 10th with a yield of 10 hl/ha, Viognier followed on the 13th, with 15 hl/ha and Vermentino was picked last on the 26th August with a yield of 15 hl/ha. The vines used for the Musar Jeune White are from our organically certified vineyards and come from 2 different vineyard terroirs: Chardonnay and Vermentino are grown on limestone based soils while the Viognier comes from vineyards with silty soils.

 

The Chardonnay and Vermentino were particularly expressive in 2015 with exotic fruit aromas of pineapple, bananas, lychees and hints of honeysuckle and jasmine. The Vermentino, native to Sardinia and Corsica adds citrus leaf aromatics, refreshing acidity, good richness and minerality. This is a crisp, well-structured wine of medium body with a long fruity and floral after taste.

 

Serve gently chilled with grilled seafood, Mediterranean vegetables & Thai cuisine.

Chateau Musar White Gaston Hochar 2008 (1x 75cl)

Chateau Musar White is a truly unique white, made from ancient Lebanese varieties Obaideh and Merwah, dating back thousands of years. Reputedly, the ancestors of Chardonnay/Chasselas and Semillon, they are among only 6 indigenous grapes still commercially cultivated in Lebanon. The vineyards were planted between 50-90 years ago, at around 1,300 metres above sea level in the foothills of the Anti-Lebanon Mountains near Ain Arab on stony, chalky soils, and on the seaward side of Mount Lebanon in Baqaãta, on calcareous gravels. The vines remain phylloxera-free and are still on their own roots. Few vineyards of this calibre and history remain in the world.

 

The Chateau Musar White 2008 is an immensely appealing honey colour with a nose and palate of orange blossom, honey, toasted bread, almonds and basil. A very well balanced wine with good fresh lemon acidity and a long finish of citrus leaves, vanilla and honey. It is rich and concentrated but still elegant and subtle about its richness.

 

The style is reminiscent of a dry Sauternes or a mature white Graves: rich and intensely zesty, with very complex, long-lasting flavours. As such, the wine benefits from decanting and is best served at around 15° C (‘cellar cool’ rather than chilled) with fine foods of similar richness: duck and spicy Asian dishes, goat cheese, baked apple pie/tarte tatin.

Chereau Carre Muscadet De Sevre et Maine Sur Lie Chateau De Chasseloir 2014 (1x 75cl)

“Sur Lie” means the wine was matured on its lees until bottling, giving it an attractive “prickle” on the palate and nice weight. Clean tasting with crisp acidity and a bright, fresh minerality.
