Mixed Case No.18 'Wines of The Year 2017'

A tough case to compile, the culmination of nearly 11 months of tastings, visits to and from producers; the result is 12 of our favourite wines of the year that we have tasted and drunk! We have tried to give the case some diversity of style, country and price, the only criteria is affordability so all wines are under £16. It's four selections each from Noel (NY), Daniel (DY) and Jamie (JH). A great example of the diversity and quality of wines we believe in and sell. Cheers!

What's included in this mixed case?

Casa de Vila Nova Loureiro 2016

Portugal

Vinho Verde has had a real resurgence in recent times which is great to see; generally best to be drunk fresh and is at its most delicious when like this- it's both grapey and almost saline, just off dry but still really fresh. A perfect pre dinner aperitif or with fresh oily fish simply served. Excellent example indeed and well priced. DY

Peacock 'Wild Ferment' Chenin Blanc 2016

South Africa

One of an array of Chenin Blanc's that are superb and all from South Africa - something of a speciality of theirs. Wild yeast fermented. Aromatic with fresh peach and pear characters and just a hint of that classic baked apple. Bright on the palate, a fresher style, yet still plenty of pear and stone fruits. Gently creamy from aging on lees in older oak, and just a touch of regional herb to add interest. DY

Domaine Bruno Sorg Sylvaner Vieilles Vignes 2016

France

This is another cracking Sylvaner from Bruno Sorg. So often an unheralded grape, Sorg makes one of the best. Perfumed with floral grapey notes, hints of orange/mandarin and gentle musky spice. Fresh and tangy with peachy fruit, again grapey with spice and a creamy palate, unusual to try a textural Sylvaner but this is it. Extremely good, tangy and fresh with a wealth of fruit. NY

Bodega Godeval Godello Blanco 2016

Spain

Loving Galician whites this year and this was my favourite. Floral nose, white peach, ripe pear, honeysuckle and greengage. Lovely weight of fruit on the really fresh and zesty palate, ripe melon, pear, peach again, with hints of gooseberry and greengage. Has good acidity with a long lip smacking finish, lovely weight yet fresh. Top quality Godello, which is becoming a very exciting grape variety, and given its weight and richness of flavour a very good food wine too. JH

Nals Margreid Pinot Bianco 2016

Italy

Ripe pineapple, white peach, fresh honey, lemon and spice on the nose. Bright and fresh on the palate, lots of weight, ripe stone fruits, melon, pineapple, gentle spice and good citrus acidity. Loads of flavour (Pinot Blanc/Bianco) can be quite thin and flavourless, but this is bursting with flavour. NY

Chateau L'Ermitage 'Sainte Cécile Costieres de Nimes Blanc 2016

France

White Rhone styles can be magnificent if well balanced and this was spot on. A delicious blend of Roussanne 70%, Viognier 20%, 10% Grenache Blanc A beautifully aromatic nose with floral characters, white peach and nutty oak. Delicious on the palate too, stone fruits, honeysuckle, nutty oak, spice and good acidity. Long spicy and really characterful. Aged 3 months in new French oak barriques. Great with rich fish dishes with a creamy sauce, roast chicken, even pork. Fabulous wine!! JH

Domaine Florent & Damien Burle 'Est-ce-que' Vin de Pays de Vaucluse 2016

France

Superb quality, de-classified Gigondas and from neighbouring vineyards. Bright and juicy with a lovely purity of red and black fruit, some spice too with ripe tannins. Drinking beautifully now. If there was ever a wine that quantified southern Rhone and its potential value, it is this one. DY

Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola 2015

Italy

Hailing from Noto on the South Eastern tip of Sicily, this is widely regarded as the home of Nero d'Avola.Unoaked and vibrant with a lovely perfumed nose, floral notes with black cherry, plum, hints of roasted meats and dark chocolate. Fresh, bright and crunchy, dense cherry and plum, spice, scorched earth, dried herbs and an almost creamy chocolate character, finishing fresh and lively. Like most Italian reds it transforms with the right cuisine and is suddenly an altogether smoother drink too. JH

Les Mougeottes Pays d'Oc Pinot Noir 2016

France

A really attractive Languedoc Pinot Noir, that whilst quite fresh and bright is purer, cleaner and way more enjoyable than most Bourgogne Pinot Noir's often at twice the price. Berry fruits, some savoury notes with spice on the nose. Bright and fresh on the palate, raspberry and black cherry fruit to the fore, soft crunchy tannins, the merest hint of oak too making it really quite attractive. Good value French Pinot Noir, always a wine merchants 'holy grail' . JH

Carinus Family Vineyards Syrah 2016

South Africa

I am liking these new releases from Carinus, made by one of the latest young star winemakers Lukas van Loggerenberg. This is a lovely bright fresh style of Syrah. It's a modern style, some whole bunch- stem influence on the nose. Bright red berry fruits and pepper on the nose. Juicy red fruits and spice, some herb and stem but in a way that complexes and accentuates the lovely vibrancy of this wine. A fresh bright red berry style of Syrah, served with a light chill its really quite delicious. Limited stocks so no case price. NY

Magpie Estate 'The Wit and Shanker' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Australia

When we showcased the new Magpie Estate arrivals in the summer, this was just magnificent - so much beautifully pure and expressive fruit and full of energy on the palate. Bright and juicy with blackcurrant pastille, cassis again a hint typical mint, lovely fruit sweetness with integrated toasty oak and hints of mocha. DY

Pago De Los Capellanas Ribera del Duero Joven 2016

Spain

A hugely enjoyable wine. An old favourite revisited first over tapas at Barrafina in London and then again with a Sunday roast, and recently in Madrid. It's a bright, juicy Ribera del Duero, just a few months in oak. Full of perfumed cherry and berry fruit, toasty oak. classic meaty characters and soft tannins. Bright, vibrant and oh so moreish, it's got a glossy polished feel, and I love it! NY
