Wines included in a case
Whitehaven Pinot Gris 2017
Decanting time: Upon opening, or after an hour or two
Featuring a rich, straw-like colour with a green hue towards the edge of the glass, this wine offers a bright, delightful bouquet of ripe, white pear, peach with cardamom, almond, and jasmine undertones. The inviting flavours expose a gentle, delightful combination of fruity and nutmeg and cinnamon spiciness, with just the perfect, intriguing undertones of minerality and the smoothness of mead and ripe figs. Warm and balanced, with flavours and depth characteristic of the wine’s varietal and region. Creamy and rich on the palate. Clean, lingering, and persistent finish.
This full-bodied wine is well-balanced and can be enjoyed now. If you cellar the wine for a year, the wine will reward you with even more texture and complexity.
Serve chilled with food, preferably smoked salmon, grilled artichokes and mushrooms, or light game. This is a distinguished, quality wine that offers wonderful value, especially when compared to other selections in its price range. A very delicious selection.
Edi Simcic Sivi Pinot 2018
Slovenia’s Gorizia Hills sit just across the border from the Italian region of Friuli and are widely recognised to be one of the finest places to make wine in the country. It enjoys Mediterranean climate and protection from the strong Bora winds which can blow fiercely along the coast, making it the ideal spot to craft rich, full-bodied reds and intensely-flavored whites. Edi Simcic established his winery here in 1990 and today he is joined in the family business by his son Aleks.
Together they produce a tiny amount of artisanal wines using traditional methods like extended maturation in large oak casks. Sivi Pinot is the Slovenian name for Pinot Gris and the Simcics make theirs in a unique oaked style with plenty of freshness and elegance. The grapes are harvested at optimum maturity while there is still ample acidity to ensure balance in the finished wine. After fermentation the young wine is aged in oak barrels for 10 months to add complexity and body.
The result is a richly-textured and stylish Pinot Gris bursting with ripe tropical fruits and hints of smoke, oak and toasted hazelnuts from the oak maturation. This bold, full-flavoured profile makes it a great match for all manner of cuisines ranging from risottos and creamy chicken dishes to gnocchi and lasagne.
Marcel Deiss Pinot Gris 2015
Regarded as one of the leading lights of the Alsace wine region, Domaine Marcel Deiss has gone from strength to strength under the leadership of Marcel’s grandson and maverick winemaker Jean Michel. The Deiss family have been living in the charming Alsatian village of Bergheim since at least 1744 and have an ancient family tradition of making wine in the region.
Jean Michel’s unconventional methods have included replanting field blends containing a wide range of different varieties and working with old, forgotten grape varieties that are currently not recognised by Alsace’s strict rules and regulations. He also insists on organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyard and winery, ensuring that his vines produce the best quality fruit possible. Jean Michel’s Pinot Gris is a fresh, light-hearted expression of this classic variety which has been grown in Alsace since the 16th century.
Hints of ripe pear, apricots, and lemon zest define the nose while the first sip reveals a racy backbone of acidity, light body, and well-balanced hints of stone fruit and baked apples. Ideal served well chilled as an aperitif, this zippy wine also combines brilliantly with creamy cheeses, fresh seafood, and leafy summer salads.
Franz Haas Pinot Grigio 2018
The Haas family have been grape growers in the picturesque village of Montagna in northern Italy’s South Tyrol for generations. When the current owner Franz Haas took over he decided to take the family business in a new direction and began bottling and selling top quality wines made from the estate’s prime fruit. These are wines of immense purity, freshness and aromatic complexity, and to preserve these characteristics Franz bottles all of his wines under screwcap.
The Alto Adige is rightly famed for its crisp and delicious Pinot Grigios and Franz’s version is one of the best with a delicate fragrance, mouthwatering freshness and a very clean finish. The must is fermented in stainless steel tanks to capture the varietal character and then transferred to large oak casks where the young wine is left in contact with the lees for an extended period. This helps to add a creamy texture and nutty hints to the finished wine.
On the nose there are seductive hints of almonds, honeysuckle, hay and bright citrus. The first sip reveals a light body, very smooth mouthfeel and vibrant acidity. Refreshing and easy to drink, this lively white is ideal to enjoy as an aperitif or to pair with fresh seafood or fish dishes.
Schiopetto Collio Pinot Grigio 2017
Mario Schiopetto was a true trailblazer for fresh and modern white wines in the Friuli region. In the 1960s and 1970s he began to introduce the latest winemaking techniques and experimented on his well-sited vineyards with alternative varieties like Sauvignon Blanc as well as indigenous classics like Pinot Grigio. Today he is regarded as a key figure in the history of Italian winemaking, and his legacy is carried forward by Emilio Rotolo, the new owner of the Schiopetto estate.
The Collio Pinot Grigio is a delicate and aromatic expression of this classic Italian grape variety thanks to the top quality grapes which are grown on the estate’s prime hillside plots. To ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in optimal condition they are all harvested by hand and pressed very gently to extract the juice. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks followed by 8 months of maturation on the fine lees.
Toasted almonds, honeysuckle, and hints of passion fruit and lychee characterise the nose, while on the palate there is a vibrant, mouthwatering freshness, well-rounded texture, and medium body. The crisp, aromatic nature of this delicious white wine make it an excellent aperitif or accompaniment to fresh seafood, sushi, and Asian curries.
