It's quite an eclectic mix with everything from the Marques de Monistrol Vintage Rosé Cava 2008 through to a Château Laroche Viella Madiran 1996. The Cava is a gorgeous colour with lots of red berry fruit. The Madiran is a wine I would have chosen for a Winter Entertaining case rather than drink in the summer as it would pair well with a hearty stew.
The Old Renwick Road Sauvignon Blanc 2010 was interesting. Imagine a nectarine wrapped up in nettle leaves then you'll get the aromas coming out of the glass in this wine. There is a nice weight to the palate which is fresh and tingly.
There's a Swingbridge Margaret River Chardonnay 2010 and a very interesting Nero d'Avola. Open and drink it right away and it is perfectly drinkable if a bit uninspiring. Leave it a while and it does develops some pleasing complexity which comes from the fact that a small number of dried grapes are used during fermentation. It's the Colpasso Nero d'Avola 2010.
Finally I guess no case would be complete with a Rioja, Here it's a Faustino Rivero Rioja Reserva 2005 from one of the oldest wineproducing families in the Rioja. This will be perfect with Sunday lunch roast lamb.
So who's going to win this selection?
