Bordeaux has been producing classy rosé for centuries and this example is just gorgeous. Seamlessly permeates strawberries and cherries in a bulbous glass. Exhibits baby soft tannins perfect for a chicken salad on a sunny day.
La Caneva Dei Biasio Prosecco DOC Treviso Extra Dry NV
Super fine bead, honeydew melon and pear. This classy artisan Prosecco has been family produced for 3 generations on soil cultivated for almost 500 years. It is a perfect aperitif style. Very moreish bubbles!
La Perrière ‘La Petite Perrière' Pinot Noir Rosé 2018
Utterly scrumptious French rosé. Made from 100% pinot noir grapes and grown entirely on Saget Perrière’s family owned Loire Valley vineyards. Slow seduction of wafting strawberries and cream if that could even be possible?!!
We scored this higher than over a 100 French Champagnes at Vinexpo. This is very classy, finessey French fizz, loaded with awards. Aperitif style exhibiting the perfect blend of citrus, apple and brioche.
La Caneva Dei Biasio Prosecco DOCG Asolo Superiore NV
Artisan produced, world class Prosecco. Came up trumps in our blind tastings against many French Champagnes selling for double the money. Super fine creamy bead, showcasing pears and citrus notes. Just stunning!
Bordeaux brilliance! Very fine parcels of fruit judiciously produced from pristine clones of cabernet and merlot. This wine was meticulously blended by the Roskam family on soils with a 2000 year rich history.
Full bodied white with gorgeous texture, expected to peak 2021 and can be cellared. Lush notes of apricots, peaches and cream. Pouilly-Fume is an epochal subregion of the famed Loire Valley. Serious wine.
Chateau Cantenac St Emilion Grand Cru Sélection Madame 2016
Crazy that a St Emilion Grand Cru could be found in Oz for under $100! This award winning Bordeaux has character so unique to its famous region, understated dark fruit and lurking earthiness. Serious stuff!
Domaine Fourrey Premier Cru Chablis 'Cote de Lechet' 2018
Mesmerising chardonnay from the village that invented it! Beaming with melon and that world famous texture and minerality that only iconic Chablis, the northern most wine village of Burgundy, can produce.
Here we have the essence of Italy! The Soavé is all about freshness, texture and its inherent ability to pair superbly with seafood. The red is from the iconic Chianti district in Tuscany. Oozing Tuscan earthiness, dates, sultanas, stewed fruits and silky smooth tannins.
Europe has been making fizz for 500 years since the monks in a small village in Languedoc, France accidentally produced it. Here are 2 excellent examples of artisan produced sparkling wines from iconic wine districts.
A serious artisan Champagne house, now overseen by the current generation of the Mignon family, Guillaume and Manon. This is what the true French connoisseurs drink. Granny smith apples, pears, citrus, and creamy brioche.
