Wine (2014)

Red

Mont Saint Jean 2012 Corbières 13 %
Description Showing notes of damsons and blackberries on the nose, with subtle hints of garrigue herbs, which carry through on the palate. Full and fruity, with rounded tannins adding a supporting structure.
Location France
Type Grenache, Syrah-Shiraz, Carignan
Notes Winemaker Jérôme Regues blends two different terroirs to make this wine; a typical Corbières red blend. Grapes from Ornaisons provide the rich fruit flavours, while grapes from Durban, around 25km further south, are said to add spicier notes.

Rose

Cuvée de Richard Rosé 2013 PGI Pays d'Hérault 12.5 %
Description Bright and crisp, with very subtle strawberry fruit and a refreshing dryness. The small proportion of Muscat adds a dash of juicy grapeyness.
Location France
Type Cinsault, Muscat
Notes A light and pale rosé from vineyards located between the villages of Cruzy and Argeliers in the Languedoc. Made primarily from Cinsault, with just a dash of Muscat in the blend.
Pied Tanqué Rosé 2013 Vin de France 11 %
Description A pale and delicate rosé, offering a straightforward nose of ripe red berry aromas and a light, gently off-dry palate that is rounded and soft in texture.
Location France
Type Cinsault, Carignan
Notes This rosé is made from grapes sourced from the Hérault region of the Languedoc. It is similar in style to many of the light and delicate rosés from the more famous, premium regions across the south of France.

Sparkling White

Prosecco Corte Alta NV DOC, Italy 11 %
Description Delicate and aromatic with a light body and fine bubbles, this wine carries lots of fresh peach, pear, apricot and apple with a revitalising finish.
Location Italy
Type Prosecco
Notes Prosecco is really driving the sparkling wine market at present and this value example really shows why. A fresh, frothy wine with medium acidity and lots of accessible pear and peach fruit, without being too heavy or alcoholic.

White

Garganega Pinot Grigio 2013 Albinoni 12 %
Description Light in colour, refreshing, and crisp and with aromas of limes, grapefruits and lemons making this well balanced wine very easy to drink.
Location Italy
Type Pinot Grigio/Gris, Garganega
Notes Garganega is the most important variety of white wine grape grown in the provinces of Verona and Vicenza in the Veneto region. Pinot Grigio is grown in the same area where the climate is influenced by the Alps.
Mud House Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Marlborough 13 %
Description Pale straw yellow, with heady aromas of fresh grapefruit, guava and hints of nettles. Crisp, concentrated and vibrant on the palate, combining citrus and tropical fruit with green vegetal undertones.
Location New Zealand
Type Sauvignon Blanc
Notes Mud House Wines was started in 1996, and is a producer focused on sustainable viticulture. Just over half the fruit for this wine is sourced from their own Woolshed vineyard in the Upper Wairau Valley, with the remainder sourced from partner growers.
