Château du Cartillon Haut-Médoc
"This is a really delightful wine with notes of cedar, spice, cassis leaf and black cherry. Elegant, well-balanced and representing extraordinary value at this price. Highly recommended!” Pairs perfectly with mushroom risotto.
"I love Chardonnay and this is a great example! Subtle notes of oak with some spice and smoke, integrated and offset by poised, taut acidity and yellow fruit. A refined, new wave style of Aussie Chardonnay." Pairs perfectly with fish and vegetables.
"An excellent example of a Gruner Veltliner, with aromas of apricot and cream leading to tight, refreshing citrus acidity. The palate is pleasingly textured though and really well-balanced. Lovely." Pairs perfectly with herb-crusted chicken.
"Made from 100% Chardonnay – this is a Blanc de Blancs Champagne and as such is refined, restrained and refreshing, with notes of apple and lemon and a suggestion of shortbread on the finish. A real treat." Pairs with an antipasti board, enjoy!
"With a deep, youthful colour, this wine is brimming with notes of mulberry, dill, vanilla and luscious black fruits. Soft, succulent and seductive, this Old Vines red is one of the nicest Pinotages I've tasted." Enjoy with a vegetarian chilli.
