This coming Saturday we are extremely pleased to have one of our favourite suppliers take over our tasting table!
James Wilson represents a fantastic portfolio of wines from around the world, six of which we have chosen for you to taste this weekend.
For the white wines James will be opening the Chateau de la Tour Penet, Macon-Perrone, a lovely single village Burgundy Chardonnay from the 2016 vintage, as well as the always excellent Joseph Mellot Sancerre ‘La Graveliere’ – a wine that needs no introduction!
For the red wine lovers James will have four fantastic wines to suit everyone’s taste. From Errazuriz in Chile we will have the Aconcagua Costa Pinot Noir 2016. Made by one of Chile’s finest Pinot Noir producers this wine has scored 93/94 points from two of the wine world’s top critics. This is a classy wine that offers outstanding value.
Next up for reds we will have Laure Colombo’s fantastic Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2016. Coming from a much celebrated wine-making family Laure produces wines with a feminine elegance and made with food in mind.
For the third red wine on taste we will travel a little further south in Europe to the legendary Rioja region of Spain. The Contino Reserva Rioja 2012 is a very impressive wine indeed. Top wine writer James Suckling awarded this wine 94 points and we would agree with that this is a truly great Rioja red.
The last red to taste this weekend comes from the Robert Oatley wine-making dynasty. The Finisterre Syrah 2013 hails from the Great Southern region of Western Australia and has won a host of awards over the last year, including a place in the Wine Merchant Top 50 Australian Wines 2018.
With such a superb range of wines on taste, and the chance to talk to the man who knows these wines in fine detail, we look forward to seeing you this Saturday afternoon.
All the best,
Paul & Jonathan
