Please remember to order by 1pm on Wednesday, 17 April to avoid disappointment in receiving your delivery.
MCC Rosé NV
Franschhoek, South Africa
A classic blend of 35% Chardonnay and 65% Pinot Noir. The wine is matured for a minimum of 36 months before being matured on the final cork for 6 months before release. A great wine for celebrations and for pairing with canapés, brie, prosciutto and smoked salmon.
Runner Duck White 2017
Stellenbosch, South Africa
Mark says, "A fantastic example of 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Stellenbosch." Crisp and balanced, this wine offers plenty of tropical fruit and just enough of a grassy element. This Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with seafood or fish dishes.
Kiritea Pinot Noir 2012
"We sampled this light style Pinot Noir at the recent Cheltenham Wine Festival and it's drinking very nicely," says Mark. Handcrafted Pinot Noir from Te Hera located in Martinborough New Zealand. Only very limited quantities of this premium Pinot Noir. A great all round pairing wine that goes with most dishes from fish to chicken to red meat.
Grand Cru Classe Sauternes 2009
A luxurious Sauternes from Bordeaux with a silky mouthfeel, slightly sticky, apricots and peaches, lychee and hints of eucalyptus. "These half bottles are a great addition to special dinners," says Mark. Pairs really well with fruity desserts, or for something completely different, with an appetiser of lightly toasted brioche and duck liver parfait. The sweetness of the wine and brioche works amazingly well contrasted against the savoury parfait.
