Domaine Lafite Légende 2016
NZD $26.95NZD $24.95
From the famous Domaine Baron de Rothschild, a superb entry level Bordeaux from a great classic vintage. Made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, it shows a deep crimson colour with a nose that is intense, very expressive, dominated by fresh fruit aromas (red currant, raspberry) and blended with discreet notes of oak. Beautiful now but will also cellar for a number of years and definitely excellent value for money.
Pleasant Valley Pinot Gris 2018
NZD $17.95NZD $16.95
Stunning soft and aromatic Pinot Gris, beautifully perfumed with essence of ripe pear, Turkish delight and a touch of honey suckle. Even though it is very well priced, you could serve it alongside a $25+ Pinot Gris and it will compare very favourably.
Castellani Chianti 2016
NZD $16.95NZD $14.95
Chianti - Tuscany
A wonderful specimen of Chianti more on the classical traditional style exhibiting saline notes, spice, dry herbs, quintessential Tuscany! Medium to full body with lovely racy acidity, vibrant and fresh. Even though it is obviously not the greatest Reserva but when it comes to value for money look no further! Drink now or over the next couple of years.
Coteaux du Lyonnais Rouge 2016
NZD $19.95NZD $18.95
2016 is a very small vintage across many regions in France and no exception for Coteaux du Lyonnais. Most of you will be familiar with this stunning wine that we have been importing for many years. Made from 100% Gamay Noir in the style of Beaujolais, soft, aromatic and perfumed yet with grip, soft tannins and frontal forward fruit. In essence, at the price it doesn’t get any better! Ideally drink this over the next few years and put it in the fridge for about half an hour, it’s magnificent chilled.
Triennes Rose 2017
NZD $26.95NZD $24.95
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.
