Curious Connoisseur Case
This six pack of wines is perfect for a curious drinker, eager to explore new expressions of old classic regions, created by artisanal, focussed wine makers.
Vin Blanc, Vin de France: A natural wine, with very little SO2 added, this is made in a low-intervention way from Sauvignon Blanc, but it isn’t typically crisp or grassy – it’s richer, more rounded and satisfying in its savoury finish.
Saladini Pilastri, Falerio DOC, Marche, Italy: Certified organic, this wine has lovely fresh, citrus flavours and a satisfying mouthfeel – brilliant on its own or with white meats or fish dishes.
B Ott, Fass 4, Grüner Veltliner, Austria: This wine is organic and biodynamic – very pure and focussed, it has typical pepper and green apple aromas, with ripe citrus and grapefruit flavours, and a touch of smoke coupled with zesty acidity.
Dosset, Dolcetto Fernando Principiano, Italy: Vino Rosso “Dosset” is a biodynamic wine made by Ferdinando Principiano in Piemonte. Vino Rosso “Dosset” is made with 100% Dolcetto – an easy going, juicy style red, traditionally enjoyed young, while the region’s famed Nebbiolo based (Barolo and Barbaresco) wines slowly matured.
Lombeline Rouge, Vin de Pays de Gard, France: An aromatic expression of black fruits, black pepper with notes of spices in the background. Round attack, black ripen fruits and black pepper aromas, with mellow tannins.
Runkel Spätburgunder, Rheinhessen, Germany: Brilliant example of Pinot Noir from Germany. Aging in a combination of new and old oak results in nicely rounded wine with bouquet of wood and marzipan. Dry, displaying surprising maturity underlined by elegant notes of blackberries, cloves and dark chocolate. An everyday Pinot punching way above its weight
