Whites (2 of each)
BODAEGAS VINESSANS, ALICANTE - 2016 EL CARRO
Classic grapey moscatel nose but with added notes of honey, salt, white flowers and subtle touches of spicy oak. Although there is bold tropical fruit, the wine is very dry mineral and saline.
PATERNA, TUSCANY - 2017 IL TERRAIO
Floral nose, silky fluidity that fills the mouth and follows with a hit of refreshing acidity and a body that has notes of almonds, toasted and baked flavours.
Rose (2 of each)
BRENDAN TRACEY, LOIRE - 2017 RUE DE LA SOIF
A superbly thirst qunching rose with flavours of summer fruit and good acidity
Reds (2 of each)
POL OPUESTO WINES, MENDOZA - 2016 QUE GRANDE SOS
An intriguing field blend, bursting with fresh fruit, demands to be drunk slightly chilled
BODEGA MIRAS, PATAGONIA - 2017 MALBEC
Bright violet red colour, intense and fruity aroma. Full bodied with well-balanced tannins. Long finish.
CLOS SAIN JEAN, COTE ROANNAISE - 2017 GAMAY
Organic Gamay from the Cote Roannaise. Oodles of blueberry fruit, gushing with bright acidity. Lovely balance
