COLLE CORVIANO PINOT GRIGIO 2019
QUAINT QUINCE CLOVER
CLASSIC / 12.5 % ALC /750ML
Colle Corviano sits in the shadows of Gran Sasso, the winery practices ‘hyper reductive’ winemaking, producing tight aromatic wines. The Pinot Grigio offers stewed quince and apple, all held together by a pleasing acidic backbone.
From the producer: At Colle Corviano, estate-vineyard blocks are vinified separately and traced throughout the production process. Each vineyard block has been delineated and planted based on the accumulated knowledge of soil profile and chemistry, aspect (orientation to the sun), slope (vertical degree impacting the potential for drainage), and overall climate. Terroir defines our plantings, without regard to what may be fashionable today. Each block has its unique geological history, which provides distinctive flavours. As the roots of the vines forge deep into the earth, their individuality becomes more pronounced. The grapes from these blocks were planted in 1973. The Colle Corvino Parcel totals 15 hectares and is located adjacent to Picciano, Colle Corviano and Loreto Aprutino with an elevation of 300 meters above sea level. The vineyard has 7 hectares of Montepulciano and 8 hectares of Trebbiano.

GAVOTY LA CIGALE ROSÉ NV
GAMAY SAVOURY CHIRPY
ROSE / 750ML / 13%
A thoughtful rose produced on the Triassic Plateau made up of clay and limestone. A poppy Gamay based rose, that offers apple, silage and a shortcrust savoury edge.
From the Distributor: Situated in the village of Cabasse, fifty kilometres from Saint-Tropez, Domaine Gavoty has all the magic of Provence. Purchased by Philémon Gavoty in 1806, the Domaine remains a family affair under Roselyne Gavoty. Throughout the last two centuries, the Gavoty family has persevered, sometimes against the odds, to see their village gain the viticultural recognition it deserves. Cabasse now stands proud as an official part of the Côte de Provence appellation.
The vineyard is planted on the ancient “Triassic plateau” – a prime, clay and limestone rich soil layer. Some plots of vineyard are planted on challenging and rocky earth. This forces the Domaine to conduct most farming by traditional hand methods, meaning little has changed in 200 years of harvesting at Gavoty. The vines are sheltered from the most extreme Provençal weather by beautiful thickets of oak and pine forest. These old forests are integral to both the vitality and sustainability of the Domaine, stabilising the local climate and creating better growing conditions for the vineyards. But the extremities of Provençe are also key to what makes Gavoty wine so exceptional. The roasting summers and bitter winters mean grapes mature slowly. To endure, the vines are forced to find water deep within the limestone rich soil. This in turn brings a trademark minerality and freshness to Domaine Gavoty wines that embodies the region and consecrates the hardships of the climate.
Another of Domaine Gavoty’s delightful idiosyncrasies is not environmental but auricular! The family have a resplendent musical heritage including Bernard Gavoty (1906-1980) – a music critic for France’s “Le Figaro” newspaper who, mystifyingly, wrote under the English pseudonym “Clarendon”. Today, the Domaine’s top three cuvées of white, red and Rosé share this quirky, anglo nom de plume. The family’s musical heritage is also celebrated in their exquisite labels, which proudly feature the Domaine’s ancient emblem, a Grecian lyre. Roselyne Gavoty, grand-daughter of Bernard ‘Clarendon’ Gavoty, has now been at the helm of the Domaine since 1985. She continues a family legacy with humility, first class winemaking and a passion for this pocket of Procençal paradise.
GUNDERLOCH FRITZ RIESLING GERMANY 2020
BALANCE TYPICAL STONEFRUIT
CLASSIC / TOUCH OF SWEETNESS / 750ML
A whisker of sweetness has given life to this linear slatey Riesling. It offers honeydew melon, stonefruit and a sherbet-like minerality. The wine is named in honour of his late Father, Frtiz who passionately but weingut Gunderloch on the map.
From The Distributor: Fritz's Riesling grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the Roter Hang, a name meaning “red hill“ due to its red-slate soils. The Roter Hang is located between the village of Nackenheim and the village of Nierstein, 20km south of the city of Mainz. The red colour comes from a high proportion of minerals and iron in the soil. The vineyards are very close to the river Rhine, face south-east and they have steep slopes. The combination of those four factors - the red slate soil, the proximity to the river, the exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards - are perfect for producing wonderful ripeness. The wine shows lovely stone fruit, fresh natural acidity, spice and aromatic lift. Dry, fresh and full of character.
Johannes Hasselbach has well and truly hit his stride after taking the winemaking reins from his late father Fritz a few years back. Warm, charming, modest and brilliant Fritz Hasselbach, who passed away from illness in October 2016, was the man who lifted the estate into the Rheinhessen's top flight. Johannes and the team are taking it even further, turning out stunning wines from top-rated vineyards of the Roter Hang, a steep hill of red slate overlooking the Rhine. The dry Rieslings are intensely concentrated and expressive of the red volcanic soil. The fruity wines are even more so, with their touch of sweetness that acts as a conduit for flavour and aroma. Nackenheimer Rothenberg is one of the great vineyards of Germany
BILLY BUTTON WILDFLOWER PROSECCO 2019
KING VALLEY VICTORIA
UPLIFTING PEAR FRESH
CLASSIC / 750ML
A gentle, dry style of prosecco to fill in conversation and keep the tempo up. Slightly richer than most, pear and nectar.
From the producer: The fruit was machine harvested, gently pressed and only the free run component of juice was utilised in this product. The juice was cold settled and racked before inoculation with selected yeast. Once fermented the base wine was racked and sulphured immediately to retain freshness. The wine was then stabilised and filtered prior to bottling. Abundant fresh fruit of honeydew and a hint of green apple. Slightly more dryer in style but with an abundance of fruit sweetness balanced with gentle acidity makes this prosecco highly drinkable!

It’s 20-odd years since Gerhard and Brigitte Pittnauer took over the winery in Gols near Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland, bordering Hungary at the eastern edge of Austria. Over that time they’ve pushed the boundaries of Austrian red winemaking, in particular with St Laurent and Zweigelt. But then there’s the Blaufränkisch and – have you ever tried Burgenland Pinot Noir? You must.
