Grape Passions (London Only) Catalogue
Coastal Reach wines are made from select grapes grown in vineyards within reach of England`s Southern coastline, so they benefit from the combination of plentiful sun and cooling sea breezes. A crisp, zesty white with aromas of elderflower and ripe tropical fruit flavours.
Our Pinot Noir rosé comes from select vineyard locations close to the southern English coast and is made at a leading English wine making facility, near Canterbury in Kent. This pale, just off dry rosé has lifted red berry fruit flavours, with grapes sourced from along the southern coastline and is simply delicious.
From a winery situated in Puglia on the heel of Italy. Duplico is made from two indigenous red grapes, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. An ancient wine making technique is employed, helping to produce a wine with great structure, whilst having a supple character. Intense fruit on the nose, this wine has scents of ripe cherries, blackcurrant, blackberry and blueberry, with elegant notes of balsamic and liquorice to complete its bouquet. As for the palate, this wine shows a great structure thanks to the perfectly balanced tannins.
Named after the unique Weka bird of New Zealand. The bird is feisty and inquisitive in nature and forms part of Maori folk law, it is often found close to vineyards. This Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant and zesty with pronounced aromas and flavours of passion fruit, citrus and lime zest. Finished with great length, acidity and richness that exceeds expectations of most Kiwi Sauvignon Blancs.
This estate has been in the Moltes family since 1930. Situated south of Colmar in Pffaffenheim, where all the vines are farmed organically. Gorgeously stylish organic French fizz, with aromas of white blossom and citrus. Finished with flavours of green apples and hints of brioche.
Zapam Zucum is a creature of legend, a woman with distinctive dark eyes and cascading hair. She is said to be the protector of nature and the under-privileged and is part of Argentinian folklore. This dark, rich Malbec is made with organically grown grapes and is bursting with aromas and flavours of red fruits, blackberries and spice.
Owner Johnathan Grieve employs a posse of ducks that patrol the vineyard looking for snails, which eat and harm the vines. The ducks are an eco-friendly way to avoid using harmful chemical poisons to kill pests and act as the guardians of the vines on Avondale. A taste of pure fruit, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, quince, with just a dash of honey on the nose. The palate is dense with ripe flavours and juicy with tangy peach and apricot flavours, delivered with good intensity and freshness. The mouth-watering flavours and acidity linger on the palate and the soft oak ageing gives it a full body feel.
The Jonty`s Ducks wines are organically and biodynamically produced and named after Avondale`s team of natural pest controllers - their flock of ducks! Lots of blackcurrant, liquorice, with a hint of dark chocolate and ground coffee. The oak aged wine has an explosion of fruit on the palate and well integrated, elegant tannins to support it. The layers of fruit, combined with a silky finish will leave you wanting more, whilst a lingering after taste makes for a rather attractive finish. A rich red made from a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot & Malbec. Oak aged with sumptuous flavours of blackcurrant, spice and dark chocolate.
Chateau Grillon is sited on the limestone plateau of Barsac. The close proximity of the Ciron river in early Autumn increases humidity and bathes the vines in morning mists, which later give way to sunshine. It is these very precise climatic conditions that give rise to Noble rot - a sugar concentrating fungus that causes the grapes to shrivel and concentrate their sugars and flavours. This fresh, zesty Sauvignon from France is made with organic grapes and contains no added sulphites.
