    AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 2021

    Grown on the slopes of an active volcano, Nerello is a wine that knows how to get your attention and keep it.

Sleek and savoury with earthy and mineral nuances, fresh acidity and smooth, polished tannins.

    SICILY, ITALY

    Sun-kissed Sicily has been growing grapes for more than 3,000 years; the hot temperatures, consistent sunshine and moderate rainfall make it a wine haven. The slopes around Mount Etna on the island’s east coast are a sweet spot for Nerello, where the higher elevation brings cooler nighttime temperatures which help maintain the grape’s desirable acidity. The volcanic soils impart mineral notes on the grape, and with Etna’s frequent eruptions, soil composition is constantly transforming.

    ADDITIONAL FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Tuna and swordfish, meatballs, roasted tomatoes, marinated bell peppers, Pasta alla Norma (traditional Sicilian pasta dish with sautéed eggplant and tomato sauce topped with ricotta), chorizo, stuffed red peppers with goat cheese

  • Torrontes Muscat

    LE20

    Ready in 6-8 weeks

    AVAILABLE JANUARY 2021

    Torrontes and Muscat, two aromatic whites, share many similarities making them ideal blending partners. Expect floral aromas, fresh peach and citrus flavours and bright acidity. Torrontes, Argentina’s signature white wine grape, lends notes of rose petal, geranium and peach, complemented by Muscat’s honeysuckle, mandarin orange, and stone fruit flavours.

    MENDOZA, ARGENTINA

    At the foot of the Andes and an average of 900m above sea level, Mendoza boasts some of the highest vineyards in the world and Torrontes grows particularly well as this elevation. The hot, semi-arid climate is tempered by cool mountain nights, helping the varietal to retain acidity. Dry, rocky soils mean the vines have to work harder for nutrients thereby producing smaller, more concentrated grapes.

    SIGNATURE FOOD PAIRING: Coconut Curry Poached Cod

    ADDITIONAL FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Smoked salmon grilled chicken or fish, empanadas, risotto, pasta with cream sauce, spicy Thai noodles, goat cheese canapes, fruit biscotti, panna cotta
