This case has all bases covered for the Bank Holidays. A trio lovely fresh whites, a Provence Rosé and a couple of fruit forward reds:
Liberation Chenin No.5 Western Cape, South Africa – This special parcel of Chenin Blanc was produced by one of best winemakers in South Africa and released incognito under the Liberator label.
Jean Luc Colombo ‘Les Girelles’ Picpoul de Pinet, France – The appellation Picpoul de Pinet is along the shore of the Thau Lagoon, an inland waterway famous for its oyster beds, and this fresh crisp citrus wine is the perfect pairing with a dozen oysters.
Moulin Camus Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur Lie, France – The ageing Melon de Bourgogne on its fine lees in Muscadet Sevre et Maine gives the wine a lovely texture to balance the fresh acidity.
Chateau Maravenne ‘Les Roches’ Côtes de Provence, France – We have imported directly from Chateau Maravenne for the last 4 years. This cuvée is made from their younger vines and fruit bought in from their growers. It is a vibrant dry Provence Rosé with notes of Summer fruits.
Tom and the Peloton Ventoux, France – This is a classic Southern Rhône blend of Syrah and Grenache. Packed with red and black fruit with a twist of white pepper and notes of garrigue. This really is an easy drinking red .
Tinedo ‘Ja! Castilla, Spain – This organic Tempranillo from La Mancha shows the unadulterated Tempranillo characteristics. Matured in cement tanks rather than the more standard oak, the red and dark fruit sing out. Perfect BBQ red.
