- Castillo de la Pena Gran Reserva 2012$24.95$19.95Campo de Borja
A stunning full bodied, fully matured Spanish red from Campo de Borja which is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Garnacha. This is a very similar wine to the Ermita de San Lorenzo which has been our most successful Spanish wine over the years, however once you try it you will know why! A full bodied wine with classic spicy and leathery flavours from the Grenache coupled with the structure and depth of the Cabernet Sauvignon and at 8 years old is drinking magnificently and at its price, just unbeatable!
- Chateau Lagrave Paran 2017$26.95$24.95Bordeaux Superieur
As is always the case with Pierre Lafon, not a man known for a lot of talking so he just lets his wine do it all for him. Most of you will be familiar with this stunning Bordeaux, one of the first imports of Accent on Wine over 20 years ago. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, medium to full bodied with lovely lush and rounded tannins, concentrated and just beautifully balanced. For a Bordeaux Superior it punches well above its weight, it has power, concentration and depth with a lovely middle palate and beautiful finish. You could easily pay double for a wine of this quality. Drink now or over the next 5-6 years.
- Paul Louis Blanc de Blancs Brut N.V.$19.95$17.95Loire Valley
We also welcome back our beloved Paul Louis after being out of it for a long time. This is made from Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley and in the Traditional Method of Champagne, first fermentation and second fermentation in bottle, yeasty, rich and full bodied, with lovely refined and tiny bubbles, long bead and lovely balance. A great substitute for Champagne at a fraction of the cost. Something to be enjoyed on its own or also with fish, anti-pasta etc.
- Benoit Maillard Coteaux du Lyonnais Rouge 2017$19.95$18.95Lyon
The much loved, much admired and much drunk by our beloved customers across the country, our Coteaux du Lyonnais 2017 has arrived! This is what true Gamay Noir should be, juicy, fresh, clean, eclectic and at the same time refreshing, satisfying and so easy to drink! We’ve said this before various times, at the price it over delivers, it’s consistent, it typifies what Coteaux du Lyonnais is, not Beaujolais but more restrained, less fruity and with a bigger punch.
- Triennes Rose 2018$26.95$24.95Provence
Domaine de Triennes was established in the mid-1990s by two of the foremost producers in Burgundy, Aubert de Villaine from Romanée-Conti and Jacques Seysses from Domaine Dujac, in Provence. They produce red and white and this is the Rosé style. Quintessential Rosé made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. It offers an array of wild berries especially wild strawberry and dry Provence herbs, aromatic, fresh, light and completely dry and very refreshing. In short, what a top Provence Rosé should be.
- Domaine Point Pinot Gris 2015$24.95$22.95Central Otago
It’s not often that we come across an excellent Pinot Gris which offers an array of concentrated fruits of pear, fig and turkish delight yet maintaining wonderful structure, clarity and focus. This is a Pinot Gris that is suitable for drinking right now being very refreshing and aromatic yet will also cellar for another couple of years.
- Pleasant Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017$17.95$16.95Marlborough
Very few cases remaining of this lovely and excellent value Sav/Blanc, when it came to the crunch and the all important value for money it delivers hands down. Not just your usual grassy, semi-sweet run of the mill Sav/Blanc but a wine that truly captures the essence of Marlborough, lovely acidity, pungent with beautiful middle palate and concentration, very clean and generous also full body, classic Marlborough really. At $16.95 per bottle it is hard to pass considering the quality of many commercial ones on the same price bracket.
