DUNEDIN WINES SELECTION WHITE CASE - WINTER 2017 6 BOTTLES
1 BOTTLE OF EACH:
FRANCE Bottle £8.95
This unpretentious, fruit-driven blend really looks the part: you could easily picture it in a Belle Époque brasserie. It oozes Gallic charm; perfect as a chilled aperitif, it possesses enough body and structure to stand up to salads and white meat dishes.
CHILE Bottle £9.95
This organic Viognier is very aromatic with lush flavours of apricot and papaya. Due to its soft texture, the wine is ideal with creamy fish, poultry and white meat dishes, but it also works well with spicy Indian food. One of our best-sellers.
ALMA DE BLANCO GODELLO
SPAIN Bottle £12.95
Godello is grown mostly in Galicia. Like its more renowned cousin, Albariño, this grape can be drunk with just about any seafood: enjoy it with Scottish shellfish, now at its best. We are fond of this little-known grape variety, who can produce very fine wines. The textural palate is crisp and fresh with light peach notes and a floral finish.
TURCKHEIM GEWURZTRAMINER RESERVE,
FRANCE Bottle £14.95 GUEST WINE
This elegant wine is fruity, floral and spicy, with a typical perfumed nose. Perfect with aromatic spice based dishes, It can also be served with a strong cheese such as Munster or Stilton. Gewurztraminer is definitely a “Marmite” wine: you either love or hate the rosewater and lychee flavours, its rich texture and the underlying hint of sweetness.
TWO DOGS, A PEACOCK & A HORSE SAUVIGNON BLANC
AUSTRALIA Bottle £16.00 GUEST WINE
A gorgeous Sauvignon Blanc that bridges the Old and New Worlds: like a very fine Sancerre with a big heart. 5% of the wine was barrel-aged and 5% old-vine Semillon blended for added complexity. It is fresh, yet well rounded and concentrated with a very long, honeyed finish. Expect aromas of lychees and Granny Smith apples, and flavours of gooseberry and passion fruit.
FRANCE Bottle £23.95 GUEST WINE
One for the Christmas table! The prestigious Domaine Carillon produces white wines that are racy and elegant. This well-noted Chardonnay has been aged in oak. It is mineral with concentrated citrus flavours and savoury notes. Whisper it, but most of the fruit used comes from the Puligny-Montrachet terroir.
