December Case of the Month
With December upon us we have a a case of Christmas crackers to get you well and truly in the festive spirit!
Sparkling (2 of each)
DOMAINE BRETON, LA DILLETANTE BRUT, Vouvray
100% Chenin Blanc. The vinous equivalent of perry with tender white fleshed honeyed notes and gentle effervescence keeping the wine bright and mellow at the same time.
Whites (2 of each)
BODEGA GODEVAL, GODELLO BLANCO, Valdeorras - 2017
100% Godello. From vineyards on steep granitic and slate slopes a Godello whose aromatics are fruity (peach and ripe apple), floral and herbal with anise and fresh mint hints. The palate has all this plus some Godello butteriness.
INTELLEGO, THE STORY OF HARRY, Swartland - 2017
100% Chenin Blanc. Potpourri, citrus and peach on the nose. Really vivid – beautiful fruit expression, fresh acidity and a salty finish. An elegant and understated wine with a really lip-smacking quality to it.
Orange (2 of each)
CIELLO BIANCO, Sicily - 2017
100% Catarratto. Almost chalky and opaque this unfiltered organic Catarratto has a wonderful nose of white grape juice, mouth-filling with notes of pink grapefruit and apple and a slight spiciness from the lees.
Reds (2 of each)
COMBIER FISCHER GERIN WINES, L'INFERNAL RIU TINTO, Priorat - 2013
Equal parts Grenache, Carignan and Syrah. The vines here are planted in a canyon near Torroja, a little lower down from the older vines which go into the top Trio wines. This is a very approachable with soft velvety Grenache given some spice and earth from the Syrah and Carignan.
ALBERTO LOI, NIBARU, Sardinia - 2017
100% Monica di Sardegna. Captivating nose with flowery perfumes of red flowers, both fresh and dried, as well as strong cherry-fruity notes and delicate minerality, combined with a gentle spiciness. Very tasty in the mouth with a hint of bitterness, plenty of stonefruit fruit and peppery tannins.
