  • Verus Pinot Noir, Slovenia

    New wine from the gang – their first red – smart Pinot Noir. Verus wines need little commentary. They are all superb, demonstrating what Jancis Robinson called “a purity of fruit” when we shipped their first ever vintage in 2008.

  • Domaine Métairie d’Alon “La Métairie” Pinot Noir

    Top Pinot Noir made by a Burgundian in the south of France. The organically grown vines are mature and producing a remarkable Pinot Noir. Dare I say more Cotes de Beaune than Nuits St Georges! The grapes were hand picked and then aged for nine months in oak barrels.

  • Miguel Merino Blanco

    Only 1188 bottles produced in 2016. Miguel Merino Blanco comes from two very special vineyards: La Loma (planted in 1946) and Mingortiz (planted in 1977). In
    La Loma vineyard (1,4 hectares at 534 metres of altitude), apart from the red Tempranillo and Garnacha vines we have a little
    treasure: a few vines of Garnacha Blanca that give us grapes of floral aromas, great complexity, body and deepness. Mingortiz is
    a 0,74 hectare slope facing East; only at the top end of the vineyard there are some Viura vines (0,20 ha). Up there, the soil is
    shallow, with great drainage and calcareous and clay composition. Its location, sun exposure and soil make this vineyard ideal to
    provide fresh and mineral Viura grapes.

    The grapes were harvested by hand early in the morning and then taken to the winery in small crates, where they were selected
    and pressed. After a 24h settling the must was racked into 4 500-litre barrels of French oak, where they went through the alcoholic
    fermentation.

  • Herbert Zillinger Radikal Gruner Veltliner – Quote of the Year – “Masterful”

    I have nothing to add to Jancis Robinson’s tasting note;

    “Selection of their oldest vines from the best vineyards of both Ebenthal and Ollersdorf. ‘A wine that combines both the advantages of loess soil and limestone.’  The must runs directly from the press into the large wooden barrel and is aged there on yeast lees for a year. One year in barrel, one year in bottle. ‘For us from the barren year of 2017 probably our most complete and possibly best wine so far.’ Very heady on the nose but lively and fresh on the palate. Lots of energy and intensity. Really bounces around the palate on the finish. So ripe you might think it was going to be a little sweet but it’s not at all. Such excitement. Long and dense but with lift too. Masterful. 13.5% Drink 2020–2028
