Wines on Tasting - Weybridge - 05.11.16

%o November 2016

2012 Naiades, Rueda, Spain
£24.99
Served blind this beauty often make people think of a Grand Cru White Burgundy, such is its richness, intensity and complexity.  Coming from a parcel of Viura vines that are over 100 years old and barrel fermented in French oak, with a malolactic fermentation, means you have a wine of great pedigree yet is a relative bargain as few know of Rueda - so come and try it!!

2014 Riesling Kabinett, Schloss Saarsteiner, Saar, Germany £22.99
Pure, refined, elegant Riesling from the Saar in Germany.  I love the cool, rapier like fruit which is deliciously direct, fine and with a long and minerally finish.

2013 Syrah, Reyneke, Stellenbosch, SA £19.99
A fabulous smoky Syrah with great depth and complexity from one of the regions leading lights of Biodynamics and Organics, Prof. Johan Reyneke.  This would be fabulous with some gamey venison stew.

2013 Rioja Crainza, Luis Canas, Spain £14.99
Described as the bench mark Crianza Rioja, we have been shipping from these guys for over 5 years and simply love their wines.

2013 Côtes du Rhône Villages, Les Coteaux, Boutinot, France £9.99
Brambly fruit underpinned by subtle oaky nuances, lovely sweet spice; warm star anise with a touch of cinnamon. This classic Côtes du Rhône Villages is enriched with specially-selected parcels from the cru vineyards of Séguret, Sablet and Cairanne.  Definitely of the best value wines we sell.

2012 Cabernet/Malbec, Agincourt, Yarra Yering, Australia  £TBC
"A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, the 2012 Agincourt possesses a deep garnet-purple color and notes of crushed blackberries, black cherries and blueberries with hints of violets, pencil lead and Provence herbs. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully structured with firm, fine-grained tannins and great freshness plus enough muscular fruit to flesh out this modestly weighted wine. It finishes with great length." 92/100  The Wine Advocate
