Mixed Case No.19 'Ultimate Wines of The Year'

Our regular wines of the year case is hugely popular and packed full of great wines, but I always feel there are wines I really want to shout about, that really are exceptional but fit outside the price parameter. So this is maybe a vanity case, but whatever it's 12 sensational bottles that have rocked my, and our socks largely! Simply put both case No.17 and case No.18 are exactly what we are about.. I hope you enjoy the wines as much as us, and still all for just under £20 a bottle!

What's included in this mixed case?

El Esteco 'Old Vines 1945' Torrontes 2016

Argentina

A stunning old vine Torrontes from El Esteco. The vines dating back to 1845 are from the high altitude Calchaquí Valleys in Salta. Hand harvested, partial whole bunch, wild yeast fermentation in a single cement egg, aged 11 months on lees and bottled unfiltered. Just 4,000 bottles produced. I tasted this a few months ago at Tim Atkin's top 100 Argentinean wine tasting and it blew me away. I had and have never tasted such good Torrontes. He gave it 95 points. Fabulously aromatic nose with peach, mandarin, jasmine, blossom, pineapple and musky spice. Crisp and tangy with a lovely intensity, a creamy texture too and again mandarin, peach, citrus and musky spice, it retains a lovely freshness. Quite superb.

Individual bottle price £16.75

Rafael Palacios 'Louro' Godello 2016

Spain

It's Godello from high altitude vineyards with a little Treixadura and aged in a variety of oaks. Ripe pear on the nose, some spice and oak too. Really fresh as just released spiced pear and peach with ripe citrus, spice and nutty oak. Really quite rich and complex with a nice core of limey acidity keeping it fresh and balanced. Long and quite oaky at present but with such a core of ripe fruit this will quickly assimilate and become something really quite special.

Specogna Pinot Grigio 'Ramato' 2016

Italy

I don’t normally do orange wines, they can be overly phenolic, and ok with a very specific dish, this was wonderful! More of a pink hue rather than orange , due to extended skin contact. Perfumed with rose hip, stone fruit and subtle spice. Has a wonderfully creamy texture on the palate, stone fruits and spice, good acidity keeping it fresh and bright. Dry, long and complex, -quite something and yes could be a spectacular food wine. A real surprise!

Constantia Glen 'Two' 2016

South Africa

One of Tim Atkin's Wines of The Year "Picking the Sauvignon Blanc early was a good decision in 2016, giving this blend with 30% Semillon real zip and freshness. Creamy lees, green herbs, stylish oak and a long, smoky, gunflinty finish make this the best release yet from Constantia Glen. 2017-21 95pts" Tim Atkin South Africa 2017 Special Report Cracking new wine from the lovely high altitude Constantia region it's a barrel aged blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. 25% new French oak. Perfumed on the nose with citrus, peach, herbaceous notes and some nutty oak. Textured on the palate with lots going on, peach, citrus -grapefruit and mandarin, some herbaceous characters and creamy nutty oak. Long and complex, it's one of those lovely wines that changes in the glass and as you drink it. Sure to be a versatile food wine, from smoked salmon to richer white meat dishes.

Argyros Estate Santorini Assyrtiko 2016

Greece

I love this winery and its another great wine. From over 150 year old unirrigated Assyrtiko vines, 80% unoaked and fermented in stainless steel, 20% in French oak, low yields, sandy, volcanic soil. Citrus and stone fruit, saline notes and stony minerals. Really crisp and dry, weighty and mouth-filling with such a pronounced minerality, like licking a rock. It's got texture and weight and is simply delicious, crisp acidity making this super-fresh. Just needs high quality fresh fish to show its best.

Pouilly-Fuissé 'L'Ame Forest' Domaine Eric Forest 2015

France

Eric Forest is making some world class Pouilly-Fuissé, this may be his village wine but it's utterly delicious. Citrus fruits, lemon, pineapple, leading to peach on the nose and palate. The wine is creamy and rich, textural and tangy. Lovely pineapple., lemon with some creamy, nutty characters. Has lovely refreshing citrus acidity giving the wine great balance. This is high quality Chardonnay and would be great with luxurious shellfish and meaty fish, but would also drink superbly with top notch poultry and some pomme purée !!

Ca dei Maghi Valpolicella Classico 2016

Italy

Great new find this winery. Not inexpensive, but delicious wines including this fabulous 2016 Classico. Corvina gentile, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara make up the blend with an average vine age of 40 years. Fermented and aged in stainless steel. Bright cherry with hints of raspberry, marzipan and spice on the nose. Quite deep and full on the palate, bright red and black berry and cherry fruits, good acidity, hints of spice too. Really quite deep and concentrated for a Classico with a lovely purity of ripe cherry and berry fruits. Stunning!

Kooyong 'Massale' Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir 2016

Australia

This is Kooyong's entry level Pinot and made to be a wine enjoyed in it's relative youth. The new 2016 is fabulous and is in Matthew Jukes's Top 100 Australian Wines 2017/18. Natural yeast fermentation, sees 12% new French oak. Lovely perfumed nose with raspberry and a touch of stem and delicate oak and spice. Light to medium bodied, lovely raspberry fruit, with some dark cherry, again quite stemmy with a small amount of whole bunches added, this adds complexity. It's bright and juicy with lovely spice and delicate oak. A wine lighter in body, though not lacking in depth with really pure fruit and really quite delicious, best served cool it works well with meaty fish, white meats and lamb. Drink over the next 3-4 years

Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

USA

This famous old Napa winery, has under the Gallo ownership returned to it's former glory. A recent trip to California showed that this is a serious winery making great wines, and thankfully some top wines that are great value when compared to many other similar quality Californian wines. This is a richer, bigger, sweeter wine than the 2013 Sonoma Cabernet we are listing. Dense cassis, oak, a touch of spice too on the nose. Rich and full on the palate with lovely sweet cassis, blackberry, morello cherry, toasty oak, liquorice, cedar and dried herbs on the finish. A really great example of Napa Cab, it shows lots of typicity and regionality and a great price for this quality - c£22 which is a bargain. Great with aged steak and lamb chops on the bbq.

Rall Cinsault 2016

South Africa

One of Tim Atkin's Wines of The Year "Cinsaut makes some very enjoyable wines in the Cape, but it rarely aspires to greatness. This wine does. Produced from 1982 plantings in the warmer part of Darling, it has some structure from partial whole bunch fermentation, scented summer berry aromas and more tannin than you think. 2018-24 95pts" Tim Atkin South Africa 2017 Special Report

Bodegas Roda Rioja Reserva 2012

Spain

This is a simply delicious, silky, beguiling Rioja that I absolutely love. 89%Tempranillo, 9% Graciano and 2% Garnacha. Aged in French oak. It's young but so lovely now! Dense black berry fruits, roasted meats and chocolate on the nose. Similar on the palate add in some liquorice, spice and toasty, creamy oak. It's rich, savoury, textural and long. I am sure it will improve over the next 3-5 years and drink for a decade or more, but I, as you may have guessed quite like it now!! Fabulous match to beef and lamb. Special seasonal price too!

Domaine de la Charbonniere Chateauneuf-du-Pape 'Cuvée du Domaine' 2012

France

I tasted this in Spring and again in September and it's a cracking drink. Proper spicy, full-flavoured full bodied Chateauneuf-du Pape.. Black berry fruits and spice with classic Grenache white pepper on the nose, hints of olive too. Fresh and juicy on the palate, it's full flavoured for sure with all the classic Chateauneuf characteristics, berry fruits, plum, spice, white pepper, herbs etc, it's well balanced and drinking fantastically now. A versatile food match, game for sure, roast red meats, rich poultry and vegetable casseroles would all work well.
