Description

An exquisite collection of wines steeped in history with exceptional provenance and flavour. All curated into this case of six gift collection.

Bodegas Ondarre Rioja Reserva 2017 75cl/ 13.5% Abv.

Bodegas Ondarre Rioja Reserva is a deep, concentrated ageworthy Rioja, aged in oak for 16 months, then a further 8 months in bottle before release. Made with 75% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuela and 10% Garnacha, this Rioja Reserva has fine grained tannins and concentrated dark fruit flavours.

The vineyards are situated on Rioja Valley’s northern hills on south-facing slopes, at an altitude of 550 metres above sea level. The vines, which have an average age of 25 years, are planted in uneven terrain due to several streams that run down the mountains that mark the northern border of Rioja. The soils are generally poor in nutrients and very shallow, just 30 to 35 centimetres in depth, which encourage the vines to send their roots deeper in search of nutrients and water. The soils vary from plot to plot, but there is a prevalence of clay based soils with high iron and chalk content. The clay content retains water, which nourishes the vines during the warm summers and the iron content is an essential nutrient for photosynthesis.

Each grape variety was fermented separately in temperature controlled vats at 28 to 30°C, which lasted for between 16 to 18 days. The wine was blended and then aged for 16 months in American and French oak Bordeaux type casks imparting subtle oak complexity. During the maturation the wine was racked four times, in order to gently extract phenolic compounds by oxygenating the wine. This produced a softer wine which exhibits great varietal fruit character. An absolute showstopper with any Cheese or Tapas Board.

 

About the Maker

Bodegas Ondarre, founded in 1986, belongs to the Bodegas Olarra Group, one of the most renowned wineries in the Rioja Denomination of Origin, but with a different character in their wines. The vineyards are situated on Rioja Valley’s northern hills on south-facing slopes, at an altitude of 550 metres above sea level. The vines, which have an average age of 25 years, are planted in uneven terrain due to several streams that run down the mountains that mark the northern border of Rioja. The soils are generally poor in nutrients and very shallow, just 30 to 35 centimetres in depth, which encourage the vines to send their roots deeper in search of nutrients and water. The soils vary from plot to plot, but there is a prevalence of clay based soils with high iron and chalk content.

Sancerre Domaine Serge Laloue 2020 75cl/ 13.5% Abv – Rose

Our founders personal favourite this light and crisp rose is from the beautiful French, Loire Valley. A deliciously silky and balanced rose offering wild strawberry and kiwi layered with notes of watermelon and grapefruit, fresh with lovely purity of fruit.

Main Grape: Pinot Noir

This Loire rose is pale salmon in colour. On the nose there are delicate apricots and gooseberries. On the palate the are apricots joined by a little mint and pepper and a long lingering finish.

Made from 100% Pinot Noir this wine has a salmon pink colour with a nose full of red berry fruits - strawberry, raspberry & red currant - with hints of peony and mint. Rounded on the palate with fine balancing acidity, creamy texture and an overall sensation of power.

Food matching: Charcuterie. Most white meat dishes. Goes very well with Chargrilled food and Asian spices.

About the Maker

The domain is located five kilometres south of Sancerre in Thauvenay and was established by Serge Laloue in the 1960s. Christine and her brother Franck have continued their father’s work since the 1990s and Clément, Franck's son, recently joined the domain following his viticulture studies. The estate revolves around an environmentally responsible approach with meticulous work in the vineyards to respect the natural balance of the vines and obtain the highest quality grapes. In 2019, the domain started the conversion to organic farming, a natural progression as their farming methods were already very close to organic. The first certified organic vintage will be 2023. The domain is HVE certified, a complementary certification recognising environmental biodiversity and natural resource management.

About the Maker

 

Reguengo de Melgaço is a historic property located in the village of Paderne. Commissioned by Queen Leonor in the 16th century it was bought in the 1900s by its current owners, who planted nine hectares of vineyards across two different vineyard sites. They released their first vintage in 2001 quickly establishing themselves as a benchmark Alvarinho producer. This aromatic variety has been well known locally for centuries but it is only recently that Alvarinho is becoming more appreciated by consumers outside the domestic market. Alvarinho expresses its full potential in the Moncao sub-region of Vinho Verde, showing aromatic complexity and a wonderful combination of fresh fruit and floral notes.
