Red of the Year
La Perdrix Solitaire Malbec AUDE, FRANCE
A true French classic - the Languedoc has long been associated with Malbec (where it was originally known as Côt and traditionally an important component in blends). Notes of mulberry and underlying redcurrant and blackcurrant aromas. Complex, with fine raspberry and red-fruit flavours backed by a touch of chocolate truffle richness. A mid-weight harmonious wine, an expression of purity and youthful fruitiness.

Food pairing: Delicious with steak and meats from the grill. It works with seared tuna, too.

Premium White
Papagiannakos Assyrtiko ATTIKA, GREECE
Papagiannakos’ coastal location on the Attican peninsula infuses the wine with salinity and racing acidity, due to its proximity to the sea. Fresh floral aromas of citrus, white blossom, mandarin and lime. Further citrus characters on the textured, mineral palate with a refreshing saline acidity. A zesty, crisp and characterful white with potential to age.

Food pairing: Swordfish - straight off the griddle, or roast belly pork.
