The Domaine Sainte Lucie Made in Provence (MIP) Premium 2016 rosé wine is delicately pale pink in colour and packed full of berry fruit on the nose. Outstanding on all accounts, and just what you're looking for when you need a dry rosé for a hot summers day...
Fresh and lively with peach, pear and rocky mineral scents, the palate is layered with conference pear, green apple, white blossom, a touch of soft spice and a mineral freshness. There is considerable concentration and structure alongside a delicious salty quality leading to a long and elegant finish. This extremely appealing wine would partner well with almost any seafood dish.
A delicate bouquet of limes and exotic floral with perfume nuances and a steeliness on the nose. The finesse and delicacy of the wine is its highlight. Simply spellbinding!
100% Cabernet Franc and the colour is incredibly striking – Blood orange / copper. Both the nose and the palate evoke a big bowl of summer fruits – strawberries and raspberries, although the acidity is present to add balance and freshness. The additional bottle age adds depth and complexity which is often missing with Rosé wines. Wonderful persistency, much preferred over MIP’s ‘Classic’ and a steal at the price...

Pale bright straw-green. High-pitched aromas of cantaloupe and hazelnut complement sage, rosemary and green fig. Bright and juicy in the mouth, with a strong impression of extract enlivening the flavors of orange zest, botanical herbs and fresh fruit salad. This is the best Pecorino wine ever made by Tiberio, and it’s also the best, most varietally accurate Pecorino wine of the year.

Fuder wines are a new and very welcome premium label from the well known Sauvignon Blanc producer, Giesen. Fermented in a 1000 litre German oak Fuder, the wine is given extended contact with the yeast lees to build texture and complexity. Deliciously creamy-textured wine with nutty yeast lees characters adding complexity to ripe nectarine, peach and other stone fruit flavours. A complex, satisfying Sauvignon Blanc in a very appealing style.

Bright straw-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full and gently up-front and voluminous with aromas of yellow stonefruits in an amalgam with white peaches and a subtle mealy and nutty overlay. Medium-full bodied, the palate is stylishly up-front with flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits and peaches with nutty and savoury mineral interest. The mouthfeel has fruit richness lending rounded textures and plenty of presence...
The leading producer in Rias Baixas widely recognised as one of Spain’s finest producers and frequently highlighted in The Wine Advocate reviews. The 2015 Albariño offers a great balance of power and finesse, with aromas of nectarine, fresh figs, orange zest and white flowers. Dry, citrus flavours and a mineral-driven finish, which expands and deepens on the tail end. Stunning!
The L’Hydropathe is the top of the range rosé wine from Domaine Sainte Lucie and is a standout among Provence Rosé’s. Red berries, pomegranate, dried flowers, herbs are just some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass in this texturally finessed, beguiling and totally beautiful wine.
“One of the finest producers of Albarino” – Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
Intense golden yellow in colour with aromas of apple and peach that blend with herb and mineral notes. This beautifully aged Albariño is elegant, smooth and complex with flavours of nectarine, orange and lime. Perfectly balanced with a long and expressive finish.
