Finca Manzanos Blanco Rioja
White Rioja is not normally the first place you think of for a fresh yet complex white wine, but Finca Manzanos delivers just that. 60% Viura, 40% Chardonnay all handpicked with a nice amount of barrel ageing at 5 months in a combination of 40% French and 60% American oak. The result is a brilliantly complex wine with a lovely white peach fruit intensity yet with a lovely restraint and well balanced finish complete with fresh citrus acidity and silky mouthfeel. This is a versatile wine which will suit smoked meats/cheeses, chicken and pasta dishes.
Le Riche Richesse Stellenbosch
Situated on the slopes of the Helderburg Mountain, Le Riche are specialists in the Cabernet Sauvignon cultivar which founder Etienne Le Riche is madly passionate about. Richesse is a classic Bordeaux Blend with 27% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc included with the 59% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe blackcurrant flavours mingle with leather, herb, cherry and graphite. This is a wine which over delivers on all fronts. Perfect choice with a Sunday roast.
Cline North Coast Viognier
One of the stand out wines at a recent tasting, this Viognier and the entire Cline range to be honest offers serious bang for your buck. From the North Coast area of California (Contra Costa/Sonoma Counties) where it's slightly cooler and ideal for adding freshness to a variety which can sometimes lack it. Expect lots of pure fruit flavours with peach and apricot evident along with a twist of ginger on a remarkably fresh finish. A really lovely bottle of wine. Try this with meaty fish dishes or it will be perfect with Asian spiced dishes, particularly Thai.
Allegrini Corte Giara Valpolicella Ripasso
A firm favourite at KWM, Corte Giara Ripasso delivers year after year. Made by Allegrini, Corte Giara offers lighter styles of wine at really good value. The Ripasso see's the fresh Corvina juice refermeneted on top of the previous years Amarone pomace (spent skins) which add more depth and flavour to the finished wine. Aged for 11 months in large Slavonian oak, the resulting wine is full of juicy red fruit flavours, sweet spice and hints of herbs. Excellent structure, fresh acids and really well balanced, this is a wine perfect for meaty, herb laced pizzas.
Nelly Marzelleau Les Grands Presbyteres Muscadet Sevre & Maine Sur Lie
Think Muscadet and you usually think 1980's throwback, permed hair, dodgy moustaches and mobile phones, complete with breifcase size battery pack. However scrap that image and try this. Domaine Les Grands Presbyteres are one of the foremost producers in the region based in St. Fiacre, south east of Nantes at the mouth of the Loire River. 100% (confusingly) Melon de Bourgogne - AKA Muscadet, this is a lean, citrusy and mineral wine, with green apple acidity and a lovely leesy note which adds texture and balance to the palate. Perfect with oysters, shellfish, or salads, this is a wine which brings Muscadet right up to date. Very enjoyable.
Murviedro Cepas Viejas Bobal
A complex yet approachable red from the Utiel Requina vineyard area close to Valencia in Spain's South East. Bobal is an unusual variety particularly popular in this part of Spain. Quite thick skinned it can produced deeply coloured wines of quite big stucture. This wine is packed full of forest fruit flavours with blackberry and blueberry evident, while the oak ageing adds delicious notes of mocha, coconut and toffee to deliver a really interesting and enjoyable drinking experience. Try this with BBQ meats, or smoked cheese.
