CANTINA KURTATSCH PINOT GRIGIO, 2021
While retaining the characteristic Pinot Grigio acidity, there is also a creamy juiciness here as well. On the nose you have aromas of fresh white flowers and peaches. On the palate you get lemon and lime notes, gooseberry and nectarine. Pale straw in colour, medium bodied with a finish of saline minerality.
CHATEAU DE COULAINE CHINON BLANC SINOPLE, 2020
Burgundian in approach and texture with aromatics of white flowers and exotic fruits. Primary fruit flavours of apple, quince and pear mix with notes of apricots, hazelnuts and brioche. Complex and rich with a chalky, mineral finish.
CHATEAU DE COULAINE CHINON ROUGE, 2021
Aromatic, fruity and with an attractive leafy character. Dark berries, blueberries and tomato leaf mix with spicy and floral flavours. Medium bodied with a lush, rounded feel on the palate. Tannins are firm yet fine grained with a long finish. Can be served lightly chilled.
CHATEAU DE COULAINE CHINON LA DIABLESSE, 2018
Richer and more concentrated than a typical Cabernet Franc with a ripe red fruit profile. Medium-bodied with flavours of raspberries, strawberries, red cherries, plums and blackberry leaf. Notes of tobacco, cedar and black olive from light oak ageing. Lightly filtered and no added sulphites gives the fruit a real sense of purity here.
QUINTA DOS ROQUES COLHEITA BRANCO, 2021
Clear and fresh with a white floral, lemon and lime bouquet. An appetising freshness with further pear and grapefruit notes on the palate with a hint of ginger. Fruit focused but with great structure, acidity and a mouth-wateringly mineral finish.
QUINTA DOS ROQUES ALFROCHEIRO PRETO, 2017
Garnet coloured wine, medium-bodied and strikingly clear in appearance. Intense red fruit aromas of strawberry, raspberry, red cherries as well as wild roses. Aged in old oak so wood characteristics are there but not overpowering. This gives it a smoky, caramel flavour with a hint of liquorice. This is a complex wine that is now starting to really show its potential.
