Wine 1: Funkstille Grüner Veltliner, Niederösterreich, Austria, 2022
Subtle exotic hints, ripe pear and fresh citrus flavours, it's a dry wine with complex flavours. The palate is rich with flavours of melon and grapefruit with a refreshing, zippy finish.
Sushi, chicken or turkey, grilled fish and salads.
Wine 2: Mád, Dry Furmint, Tokaj, Hungary, 2019
Elegant, delicately aromatic with a touch of spice. Apricot, lychee, honeysuckle and ginger. Well-balanced with minerality and structure. Bright, mouthwatering acidity, great Furmint typicity. Just off-dry in style with delightfully light alcohol – so yes, you can have another glass, it would be Mad not to!
Try it with gammon, roast pork, or smoked barbeque chicken. Also great with lighter or vegetarian pasta dishes or salads.
Wine 3: Cartlidge and Browne, Chardonnay, North Coast, California, USA, 2021
Burgundian in style with elegant mineral complexity combined with the slightest of caramel and brown sugar notes. Aromas of a green apples and honeysuckle lead to a palate that is both silky and generous. Flavors of pear, melon and light citrus with aromatics of straw, lemon and oak tones of sweet caramel and hazelnut.
Very versatile, well balanced with excellent acidity and will perfectly pair with a number of foods. Seafood dishes, grilled chicken, pork or veal.
Wine 4: Produttori Di Manduria, ElectricBee, IGT Puglia, Italy, 2021
Very intense and incredibly complex, this beautifully crafted wine has an aroma reminiscent of ripe cherry, plum, and blackberry, yet retains a delicate freshness and softness on the palate.
Hearty and meaty pasta dishes with rich red sauces
Wine 5:Bodegas Altolandon, MilHistorias Bobal, Manchuela,Spain, 2020
A deep cherry colour with violet tints. The aroma is intense, full of ripe red seasonal fruit (cherries, blackberries, blackcurrant), subtle hints of violets, rosemary and a touch of black pepper. This Bobal shows distinctive power, vibrant fruit, freshness with soft and ripe tannin. It is spicy and juicy with a well rounded palate with a fascinating crunchy-fruit freshness. The finish is gently tannic combined with excellent depth.
Best with richly flavoured meat. Roasts, cheeses and cold cuts.
Wine 6: B Vintners Liberté Pinotage,Stellenbosch, South Africa, 2020
Elegance, freshness and finesse are key, still remaining concentrated and age-able. Flavours of fresh cherries, blackcurrant and potpourri reveal themselves first, with subtleties of dried herbs and spice lending complexity. The palate follows through with fruit concentration, and intricate and dense structure, while hints of savoury and spice gives dimensions. The lingering taste of blueberries is a great reminder of the complexity of the wine.
Lamb shank, wild mushroom risotto or aubergine and red lentil curry
