This box contains the six wines below:
- Viejas Tinajas, Cinsault, De Martino – Chile – Itata – 2014: An extraordinary wine made from one of the coolest parts of Chile. The wine is made in old clay amphoras in a truly ancient way. This gives us a wine that is delicate and refined and could easily become one of our favourite quaffing wines. Unique!
- Evolution Pinot Noir, Sokol Blosser – USA – Oregon – 2014: The lightest of the Sokol Blosser Pinots and the only one which doesn’t see any wood. Soft, elegant and balanced to perfection. This is a fantastic, juicy, glass of Pinot Noir.
- Borthwick Vineyards, Paper Road Pinot Noir – New Zealand – 2014: A wine with spicy and earthy aromas along with savoury tones. The texture is apparent combined with a supple roundness giving way to a bright core of acidity and a long finish. Definitely, a great wine, waiting to be drunk
- Finca San Martin, Torre de Oña (La Rioja Alta), Rioja Crianza – 2013: clean and bright, this wine has a high aromatic intensity, with prevailing notes of ripe fruit, strawberries and redcurrants against a balsamic, aniseed, liquorice and cedar background from painstaking barrel ageing. Well-balanced in the mouth, with a pleasant structure and fine tannins leading to a fresh, agreeable finish. Lovely final aftertaste, with a background of ripe fruit and liquorice reinforcing the typical characteristics of this Rioja Alavesa wine. A classic elegant wine that delights!
- Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Domaine Henri Prudhon – France – Burgundy – 2015: A pure Pinot Noir from Burgundy. This is a benchmark of what Pinot Noir should be like in Burgundy.. Red and black fruit, freshness, good tannin but not overly extracted.. Not heavy, just a glass of juicy, delicate wine that slowly opens itself to you.
- Beaune, Les Aigrots, 1er Cru, Domaine Sébastien Magnien – France – Burgundy – 2013: A beautiful Beaune red, from one of the fast rising names of Burgundy. Expect pure class, velvety tannins a wonderful mouthfeel and complexity. Definitely a wine to leave in the glass for half an hour before you enjoy.
