Farnese Trebbiano 2016
Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Italy 12% abv
A light and refreshing dry white with aromas of Fresh lemon,
melon and almond. Nicely balanced, it's fresh and zippy with ripe
citrus and melon fruit flavours.
This Trebbiano displays all this grape's zesty lemon freshness -
enjoy as an apéritif or with seafood or salads.
Prince de Dulphey Brut Réserve
Crémant de Bourgogne, France 12% abv
A fine crémant, Burgundy's very own sparkling wine. A worthy if
often unsung rival to Champagne. Made from creamy Chardonnay,
perfumed Pinot Noir and fruity Gamay, the same grape used to make
Beaujolais. A delicious drop on its own or with canapés - whenever
you want to create an instant party atmosphere.
La Trombetta Gavi 2016
Gavi, Italy 13.5% abv
Classic Gavi is every inch the elegant Italian sipping wine, and
full of flinty freshness too! The wine has a perfect harmony
of citrus fruit, mineral notes and freshness.
A great Gavi, it excels alongside grilled sole or herby pasta
dishes such as tajarin (Piemontese tagliatelle) or ravioli with
Penfolds Father Grand Tawny
South Australia 18.5% abv
If you're a fan of tawny ports you simply have to try a fine
Australian version too and there is no better place to start than
with Penfolds Father Grand Tawny. A sumptuous fortified wine of
great smoothness and complex nutty, raisiny fruit. Great with
mature cheeses and rich desserts. Can be served slightly
Rex Mundi Shiraz Grenache 2016
Languedoc, France 13% abv
Rex Mundi is a sumptuous red that fires the senses - a
devilishly delicious blend of spice laden, lip staining Shiraz and
plummy Grenache from the rugged Roussillon region.
Gloriously easy to quaff on its own, it also goes well with
barbecued meats, Cajun chicken or lamb chops.
