Domaine Montrose, Chardonnay, IGP Cotes de Thongue, 2019
Domaine Montrose was founded in 1701 when Joseph Alazard received his three lizards family crest. Family owned since then, Bernard Coste is the 11th generation in charge of Domaine Montrose. His son Olivier joined him in 2009. Together, they utilize 300 years of history and tradition to produce wines of elegance and excellence. As a tribute to their ancestor, the three lizards appear on all Montrose bottles. Domaine Montrose has 80 hectares of vines, grouped together around the estate. The estate is named after its location, on a volcano (mont) and after the pink-blossomed (rose) almond trees bordering the property. Even today, a lane of almond trees still leads to the estate, and others grow on the slopes between the vines. The Chardonnay bursts with green apple aromas and ripe citrus. Perfect for a lockdown evening in with some Scallops and Langostine.
Trois Mouline, Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux, 2019
Not the first area that springs to mind these days for Sauvignon Blanc, but the wines are fantastic. The traditional Sauvignon / Semillon blend has been replaced these days with a simpler yet delicious single varietal at the more accessible price points.
Citrus blossom, lime and slate on the nose with an initially subdued palette structure of chewy acidity and sweet florals that builds up to a crisp finish with a small and contained bolt of pleasant minerals.
Familia Cassone, Finca La Florencia, Malbec
Frederico Cassone, makes the wines on his family estate. The Malbec grapes come from single vineyard sites in Lunlunta y Agrielo and Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. The grapes are hand harvested into small 18kg boxes then transported to the short distance to the winery ensuring the optimal quality of the fruit. The wine is vinified in stainless steel then spends a further 6 months in a combination of American and French Oak barrels. The resultant wine has intense red berry aromas with a touch of pepper and spice. On the palate it is rich and powerful with the juicy fruit, spice and soft tannins leading to a long finish.
Ochagavia, Silvestre, Merlot, 2019
Lively, smooth and fresh Chilean Merlot, with mouth-watering red fruits and a hint of spice, dangerously drinkable. "Silvestre" refers to the first name of the visionary who sowed the first Bordeaux varieties in Chilean soils. A politician, an entrepreneur, a free spirit. But most of all a lover of nature and the Chilean fields. The vineyard is trained using standard VSP techniques and yields an average of 10 tons per hectare. The canopy is managed through moderate leaf plucking, leaving clusters exposed to the morning sun only. Harvested at the end of March, grapes are picked mechanically during the night and manually during the wee hours of the morning to ensure their internal temperature upon arrival at the reception yard does not exceed 10° C.
Long Beach, Shiraz, 2018
This full-bodied wine shows freshly crushed pepper aroma with lots of brambly red berry fruit, rich mulberry and well integrated vanilla tones. The Robertson wine district produces wines of quality and style. The Long Beach wines are expressive, open and easy drinking wines which represent incredible value for money. Perfect party wines!
