Your new favourite fizz! This super sparkling wine from one of our favourite Dão producers, Quinta de Cabriz, is made with the Champagne method, but with all indigenous Portuguese grape varieties. It's full of fleshy white fruit, citrus, biscuit and warm toasted cereals. Fruity, fresh, balanced and crystalline, with a crunchy finish and a captivating mousse, this is a real showcase of the quality and value of Portuguese sparkling wine.
A style as classic as it gets! Cortese grapes are grown all over Piemonte, but the vineyards surrounding Gavi itself are considered the best. This wine is light and fresh, with zesty citrus fruit and floral notes, as well as hints of apple and pear. Steely acidity and an underlying mineral character are balanced by notes of melon and stone fruit.
This aromatic Central Valley Carmenère is from Undurraga, one of Chile’s most prestigious wineries, and is a great introduction to one of the country's signature grape varieties. An intense violet colour, it delivers exuberant red fruit aromas and a palate bursting with cherry juiciness, balanced by notes of capsicum and coffee.
Into the realm of sweetness we delve! This luscious, Sauternes-style noble rot wine from New South Wales is intense and honeyed, with layered aromas of orange rind and apricot, through to a beautifully balanced finish enhanced by toasted notes and subtle spice. What a finish!
