Vigne Nuove Montepulciano, Valle Reale
The ’classic’ wine from this estate and something of a powerhouse. Lovely blueberry, damson and black cherry fruit with tobacco leaf and mineral notes. A great all rounder. The 2006 vintage has won Gambero Rosso’s Maximum Three Glasses - an exceptional achievement.

Champagne Carte Blanche, Bernard Remy
60 % Pinot Noir, 35 % Chardonnay, 5 % Pinot Meunier with a minimum of two years on its lees. Light, mid-gold colour, good effervescence and clarity - has a quality look to it. Fresh nose, citrus, lime, some white flower and honey which follows through into the palate. Lovely fresh mouthfeel, good weight and complexity. Clean long finish.

Grand Vin de Glenelly, Glenelly Estate
Chateau Pichon-Lalande comes to the Cape! The various grapes were aged separately for six months in French oak (1/3 new), then blended and aged a further six months in the same barrels. Showing beautifully at the moment; dark Syrah fruit on the nose, a hint of black pepper, then more Cabernet on the palate – sleek, savoury blackcurrant; hints of coffee and earth – with a great balance of ripe tannins and balanced acidity.

Grenache, Dom. Bachellery
Quite intense black cherry colour. Bright, lifted nose of ripe red and black fruits, earthy spice - good mouthfeel, the tannins are grainy and soft, black fruits, kirsch, hints of raspberry perhaps. Good finish. Clean, balanced, well-made and with the freshness that Grenache can sometimes lack.

Cotes du Rhone ’Rhone by Roger Sabon’, Dom. Roger Sabon
Mainly spicy Syrah, with Grenache and Cinsualt adding ripe red fruit. Highly expressive, generous and elegant at the same time - Roger`s `Rhone` is a local classic.
