Winter – Mixed
The white winter case is made of 3 wines to fit all occasions, first a white from Cote du Rhone that has a very aromatic nose and yet has good freshness on the palate, white flowers and green tea you will easily recognise in it and some exotic fruits, a perfect aperitif wine or fish of course. The second one is from an appellation called Saint-Guilhem-le-desert, it is north of Montpellier slight elevated. The height at which the vines grow give this Viognier with a little bit of Sauvignon Blanc and stunning freshness and yet a lot of complexity, dried apricot sweet pastry on the palate and ripe fruit and almonds on the palate, amazing wine for its money. And the last one is a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc, citrus fruit with mineral hints a must-have for your seafood platters or goat’s cheeses.
This red winter case is made up of wines you want to enjoy in front of your log fire, or staring out of the window watching the world go by. They all have a warm feeling to them. First, the Bordeaux made of mainly Merlot and a bit of cabernet franc to keep the perfect balance. Medium-bodied it can be drunk without food even but loves a piece of meat or charcuterie. The second one is a subtle blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it’s a wine with sensuality, aromatic enchantment and a crispy fresh texture. The Cote du Rhone from Maby has been awarded a stunning 90/100 by Robert Parker and rightly so, it has a palate of mulled black fruit with hints of liquorice. A lovely velvety structure that makes it a perfectly drinkable wine.
