Vinoramica Favourites Case
A mixture of household names in Highams Park—that always put a smile on the face—along with some of Matt’s recent discoveries, often “off the beaten track”.
One bottle of each of the following:
San Marzano Verdeca Talo—Puglia, Italy
A refreshing, dry style of Verdeca with rich aromas of blossoms, green apples and a touch of honey. Full-flavoured with hints of melon and spice, a creamy texture and a crisp, dry finish. A great match for shelfish or fish with a light sauce.
Akriotou Savatiano Orivatis “Mountain Wine”—Greece
A dry wine with perfectly balanced freshness, made from 100% Savatiano - an indigenous Greek variety - from the mountains. A complex and aromatic nose with ripe peach, quince and creamy vanilla leading to intense flavours of grapefruit, mint and a touch of pepper, and a long spicy finish. Try with smoked trout, fresh crab and spicy Asian-inspired dishes.
Finkenauer Riesling Trocken (dry)—Nahe, Germany
A crisp and zingy Riesling with peach fruit and fresh, floral aromas. A great balance with a slightly spicy edge, a hint of spritz on the palate and a dry, steely finish. Try with white fish, lemon risotto and spicy dishes.
Adega de Penalva Indigenous Red Blend — Dao, Portugal
A soft, easy-drinking wine from indigenous Portuguese grape varieties. Bags of juicy, crunchy red fruit lead to soft tannins and a warm and spicy finish. A perfect partner for lamb, beef and venison.
Corbieres la Bastide—Languedoc, France
A blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre from the Languedoc. Dark fruits on the nose with some savoury notes and earthy spice. Rich and concentrated on the palate, well-balanced with fine tannins and bags of soft black fruit. A great partner for red meats, stews, BBQ and hard cheeses.
Echeverria Pinot Noir—Casablanca Valley, Chile
An elegant and fruity cool-climate Pinot Noir with aromas of strawberry, black cherry and raspberry and hints of chocolate and mocha. Soft and round on the palate, with a rich texture and refreshing fruity acidity. Works well with earthy flavours such as mushrooms and truffle, also salmon and tuna, and grilled or roasted lighter meats such as pheasant, lamb or duck.
