Mixed Case No.16 'Wines of The Year 2018'

A tough case to compile. with so many delicious wines over nearly 11 months of tastings, winemaker visits, wines enjoyed abroad, wines tasted and drunk ! We have tried to give the case some diversity and make it a real mixture of grapes, countries and styles. The only criteria is affordability so the ceiling is set at £16. It's four selections each from Noel (NY), Daniel (DY) and Jamie (JH). A great example of what we are about, these are wines we all love. Cheers!

Stellenrust Chenin Blanc 2018

South Africa

Tim Atkin South Africa 2018 Special Report Best Value White Wine of The Year "Incredible value at only R60 a bottle, this wild yeast-fermented, unwooded Chenin is all from unirrigated vineyards. Appley, zesty and balanced with a savoury undertone and palate cleansing acidity. 2019-21" Sadly not available in Rand! Ripe red apple and pear, lime too and a touch of spice. Clean and zesty with lovely fresh apple/grape ripe pear and hints of mango with crisp lime finish. Just so drinkable and would be great with some lightly spiced dishes. Delicious! NY

Individual bottle price £10.75

Domaine de Font-Mars Picpoul de Pinet 2017

France

Grapey with pear, blossom, ripe apple and citrus on the nose. Vibrant and tangy on the lively, slightly spritzy palate with lime and perfumed notes, a touch of apple too. Clean and zesty with enough weight to add interest. Lovely aperitif style but also good with fish dishes and could probably cope with a touch of spice. There's Picpoul and then there is Font-Mars Picpoul! DY

Brisa de Verano Garnatxa Blanca 2017

Spain

A really attractive coastal influenced white made with Garnatxa (Grenache) Blanca. Made predominantly from Garnatxa Blanca sourced from Terra Alta. It is complemented by the addition of 5% Macabeu from Vilosil. Produced from old vine fruit (average 40 yrs for the Garnatxa Blanca and 55 yrs for Macabeu) the vines are planted at around 500m altitude in Terra Alta, and 700m in Vilosell. Stone fruits and lemon/lime on the nose; the palate is fresh and complex with minerals, stone fruit characters, subtle herb and a long, textured finish. Stunning as an aperitif and equally so with quality seafood. DY

Sillogi Moraitis Assyrtiko-Malagoussia 2017

Greece

From the Island of Paros in the Aegean Sea comes this tasty little number. Some stone fruit and citrus oil on the nose, a hint of crushed flower petal too. The palate is textural yet pretty dry (but not bone) with white peach flavours and again more lovely waxy citrus peel flavours. Very, very drinkable and crying out for freshly caught sea beasties with fins or shells ! Yamas ! JH

Weingut Hanewald-Schwerdt Riesling 'Buntsandstein' Ruppertsberg Trocken 2017

Germany

Delicious dry, crisp, tangy Riesling from the Pfalz. Ripe apple and lime, with some typical Germanic spice. Crisp, zesty citrus acidity makes this a lovely clean fresh example. Lovely aperitif, also good with lightly spiced Asian dishes, and of course fish. Has a minerally depth that makes this a real cut above most and is very ageworthy.

Umani Ronchi 'Casal di Serra' Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2017

Italy

This is a delicious complex Verdicchio. From old vines, part of the wine undergoes some extended skin contact, only partial malolactic fermentation is allowed (to keep acidity) and aged on lees for several months. Ripe pear, citrus, honey and a touch of spice on the nose. Similar on the palate add some apple too, peachy notes and most importantly good acidity. Lively and fresh - it has lots of extract on the palate. JH

Mantlepiece Cinsault 2017

South Africa

This is a deep yet pretty Cinsault being generous of fruit yet full of life. The nose has an immediate perfume appeal of fresh damsons and plum sauce which are reflected on the palate and marry with texture, freshness and finesse. From 35-40 year old, unirrigated vines in Paarl, this old vine red is remarkably light on its feet and says so much about why we have championed Cinsault from SA for several years. Lovely served cellar cool, great with Asian duck dishes and anything influenced by soy/hoisin sauce. JH

Sottano Malbec 2017

Argentina

The latest and certainly the best release of this shop favourite so far. Not just another generic 'Mendoza Malbec', this has more character and is more serious than most. Dark in the glass and with classic inviting aromas of blue fruits, the palate is full bodied but very smooth with black and blue fruits to the fore and some very tidily integrated oak. Not just a wine for 'steak night' as this well be excellent with food from the slow cooker. JH

Planeta 'La Segreta' Nero d'Avola 2017

Italy

This is a brand new La Segreta from Planeta, this being a 100% Nero d'Avola a classic Sicilian variety. It's very attractive- bright cherry, some floral notes, spice and hints of chocolate on the nose. Juicy and fresh, again floral notes with bright cherry and red berry fruits, spice, soft tannins and just a hint of chocolate. Youthful and crunchy, great served cellar cool and a really versatile food wine that will partner tomato dishes amongst many others. NY

Cuilleron Syrah 'Les Vignes d'a Coté' 2016

France

This Northern Rhone Syrah is labelled as a simple Vin de France this vintage. This is a lovely follow up to the 2015 - a touch lighter and fresher but delicious nevertheless! Ripe red and black berry fruits on the nose with spice and a touch of dried herb and smoked meat. Bright, juicy red and black fruits with a hint of spice, dried herbs and pepper, appealing with sweet fruit and crunchy tannins and a whisper of oak. I wish more Crozes Hermitage and other Northern Rhone wines tasted like this ! A lovely lighter style than the last couple of releases, but still very much in the zone and a super value. DY

Herdade do Peso Colheita Alentejo 2015

Portugal

The 2015 Colheita Herdade do Peso is a blend of 45% Syrah, 35% Alicante Bouschet and 20% Touriga Nacional, aged for 12 months in French oak. It comes in at 14.5% alcohol, yet has a lovely freshness about it. Deep in colour, dense berry fruits, a meaty savoury character with good acidity and some toasty oak. Rich, long and complex, crying out for slow cooked meats, a lot of wine for the money. NY

Bodegas Borsao 'Tres Picos' Garnacha 2016

Spain

The grapes are sourced from Borsao's oldest vines, up to 60 years old, planted on uneven clay and limestone soils in the Alto Moncayo - at an altitude of 600-700 metres. Low yields. Maturation for several months in new French oak barriques. Ripe berry with mocha/chocolate, smoky bacon notes and some spice on the nose. Always a crowd pleaser this is bang on ! Ripe sweet berry fruit allied to toasty creamy oak. smoked meat characters, spice, white pepper with chocolate on the long finish. If you like rich, opulent wines then this ticks all the boxes and must be close to the perfect winter red. Has a lovely purity of berry and cherry fruit that makes this so attractive. DY
