Wines included in a case
Cos Pithos Bianco 2017
Founded in 1980 by a trio of friends, over the past four decades the Cos winery has transformed the Sicilian wine industry with their pioneering approach to winemaking. In the vineyards they use biodynamic agricultural practices to minimise their impact on the natural world while in the winery fermentations are carried out with indigenous yeasts.
This sensational orange wine is made from the local Grecanico grape variety with the grapes macerated on their skins to give an incredible golden colour and depth of flavour. The wine is fermented and matured for seven months in large terracotta amphorae known as “giare” which closely mimic ancient winemaking techniques and help to showcase the pure varietal character in the finished wine.
On the nose you’ll find hints of tropical fruit, cider and green olive which are joined on the palate by ripe white peaches and toasted almonds. The full body and rich, creamy texture are carefully balanced by a vibrant acidity which gives harmony to this intense wine. An ideal candidate to enjoy alongside a fine meal, this special orange wine would pair well with fish served in a creamy sauce, risotto dishes or a plate of fresh pasta served simply with olive oil, garlic and Parmesan cheese.
Soellner Irden Roter Veltliner 2016
Roter Veltliner is little known outside of its native Austria, but white wine aficionados across the world are quickly realising the qualities of this cult variety. The stronghold of the variety is the Wagram region which is set on rolling hills on either side of the Danube river. Here plantings of Roter Veltliner had been decreasing drastically and owe their survival to the dedication of local winemakers like the Soellner family who recognised the potential of the variety.
The variety gets its name from its red-tinged grapes which do not give any colour to the finished wine. The family ferment 80% of the Roter Veltliner grapes with the skins to add extra complexity to the finished wine and the remaining 20% in a stoneware tank. The wines are then blended and bottled in unique black stoneware bottles which are sealed with organic corks.
This unusual white wine is sure to delight fans of dry Riesling and Gruner Veltliner thanks to its crisp aromas of lemon zest, apples and white flowers. On the palate there is a racy acidity, light body and pure fruit flavours with a very clean finish.
Clai Ottocento Bijeli 2014
With just 8 hectares under vine, this boutique winery has been in the hands of the same family for generations and is currently run by talented winemaker Giorgio Clai. The Clai family’s winemaking philosophy centres around a celebration of indigenous grapes which they skillfully blend with popular international varieties that suit the Istrian terroir.
Their Bijeli is a dry white blend of local Istrian malvasia, Pinot gris, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc which are all harvested from the family’s organically-farmed vineyards on the Istrian Peninsula close to the border with Italy. After the harvest the grape must is vinified along with the skins using wild yeasts which are naturally present on the skins of the grapes. The wine is then aged in large wooden casks for around 15 months to soften and integrate the four different components until Giorgio decides it is ready to bottle and release.
Giorgio’s wines have developed a cult following in top restaurants and wine bars all over the world and it’s easy to see why once you take a sip of his stunning Bijeli. On the nose there are seductive notes of lemon curd, acacia flowers, ripe peaches and caramel, while the palate is well-rounded with spicy hints from the barrel ageing and plenty of ripe stone fruit and orange flavours.
Roxanich Milva Chardonnay 2010
Although Mladen Rožanić only released his first vintage in 2008, he has quickly developed a cult following amongst natural wine aficionados. His unique bottlings take inspiration from both traditional Istrian winemaking methods and his extensive travels which enabled him to work alongside some of the world’s top winemakers.
Mladen’s Milva is often described as a Mersault-style Chardonnay thanks to its rich, luscious style which quickly seduces fans of orange wines. The hard work begins in the vineyard where Mladen insists on organic farming practices to produce the best quality grapes possible. When the grapes arrive at the winery they undergo a week-long maceration to extract plenty of colour, aromas and flavours from the skins. After a wild yeast fermentation the wine is aged in large wooden casks for a total of six years until Mladen decides it is ready for release.
Pour yourself a glass of this special Chardonnay and you’ll immediately notice the gorgeous amber hue and complex, multi-layered aromas of nutmeg, almonds, jasmine and tropical fruits. These aromas carry on to the palate where they are complemented by hints of minerality, a generous full body and a very long finish. Try pairing Milva with pan-fried salmon or veal dishes to complement the intense flavour profile and firm structure of this unique wine.
Dubokovic Moja M 2010
Superstar Croatian winemaker Ivo Duboković initially studied economics and only discovered a love of viticulture later in life. Together with his father, Jako, Ivo began bottling the wine produced from the family’s prime vineyards on the sunny island of Hvar which had previously been sold to the local cooperative. Since then his boutique winery has gained something of a cult following for its sensational expressions of indigenous grape varieties that are largely unknown outside of Croatia.
Ivo’s Moja M means “My M” in Croatian, with the M standing for the local Maraština grape variety. Following the harvest Ivo macerates the grape must with the skins for an extended period to produce a full bodied, aromatic white wine which exudes aromas of pear, quince, caramel and acacia blossom.
Take a sip and you’ll immediately notice the seductive cherry, cedar and lemon zest flavours and hints of dried Mediterranean herbs. The rich creamy mouthfeel and gentle tannins are well-balanced by a crisp acidity and subtle minerality on the finish. This appealing orange wine would make an excellent introduction to macerated white wines thanks to its easy-going and food-friendly personality.
Vodopivec Vitovska 2015
Paolo Vodopivec produces extraordinary wines in the Carso region of north-eastern Italy close to the border with Slovenia. The Vodopivec winery was founded in 1994 when Paolo and Valter took over the family business from their parents. Today winemaker Paolo only works with the indigenous Vitovska grape variety and employs ancient winemaking techniques like the use of large earthenware vessels known as qvevri.
The Vodopivec is a stunning orange wine which is vinified with the grape skins and matured inside a qvevri for between 6 and 12 months before undergoing further ageing in large neutral botti or wooden barrels. Paolo introduced the use of qvevri from Georgia in 2005 with the aim of showcasing the true and pure character of the Vitovska variety.
This winemaking process gives the wine a unique character and a deep orange hue thanks to the additional colour that is extracted from the skins during the long maceration period. On the nose there are delicate hints of tarragon, jasmine and sweet spices, while the palate offers a firm structure, generous full body and soft tannins. This distinctive wine is ideal to enjoy alongside creamy chicken dishes, risottos, or baked cod accompanied by Mediterranean vegetables.
