Clove, woody spice notes are a welcome influence. Some earthiness too. Not at all hard to admire ‘dangerously drinkable’ territory ... 92 points” (Halliday).

Rustenberg Five Soldiers Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2013 at £27.99 bottle This iconic Chardonnay is the pinnacle of Rustenberg Chardonnay. The vines emerged from a cold, wet Winter and enjoyed even budding in the Spring of 2012. Strong winds in early Summer affected the yields and canopies of some varieties but cool and consistent weather in early 2013 resulted in later than usual ripening. The cool growing season meant the grapes reaching their flavour ripeness with low sugars resulting in medium-bodied, elegant wines that would benefit from a couple of years or so in the cellar to bring out it’s full potential.                                                               

Spain                                                                                                

Coral do Mar Albarino Rias Baixas 2014 at £10.99 b0ttle This is fresh, citrussy and rather creamy, with bold minerality The palate is quite firm and structured but, quite open and flavoursome when it has had a little time to open up in the glass. Firm acidity, and a good grippy finish. This is very attractive indeed.                                               

Vina Real Gran Reserva Rioja 2007 at £18.99 bottle This superb example of a Gran Reserve Rioja is modestly priced. Deep, ruby red colour with shades of garnet, this wine  is very intense and complex on the nose, hints of oak aging stand out (coffee, spices, leather, toastiness) well integrated with layers of fruit and nuts. The first impressions on the palate are mellow, evolving towards a powerful and structured finish with a long aftertaste. Tannins show sweet, restrained and very well integrated in the wine's structure. It is a wine with a great ageing potential in bottle. Food pairing: Red meats
