The Gold Case


Bollinger, Special Cuvée, Aÿ, Champagne NV

Arguably the most iconic Champagne of all, Bollinger’s Special Cuvée never fails to delight. A golden colour with a beautifully fine mousse. The nose is aromatic and complex with ripe fruit and spicy aromas. Roasted apples, apple compote and peaches burst on the palate. Brioche and notes of fresh walnut linger on the lasting finish. A great aperitif but also brilliant with sushi and sashimi, and even and grilled lobster. Enjoy now or choose to age in the cellar.

Haras de Pirque, Albaclara, Sauvignon Blanc, Maipo, Central Valley, Chile 2022

It combines perfectly with aromatic and spicy foods such as Thai food, as well as with seafood such as oysters and fresh white fish. It complements well with many appetizers and first courses: dried fruits, fresh cheeses with olive oil and fresh herbs.

San Marzano, ‘Edda Lei Bianco’, Puglia, Italy 2020

A very distinctive and complex wine with intriguing aromas of orange blossom and rosemary complemented by rich guava and peach with overlaying freshness. Packs a punch of flavour.

Larry Cherubino / Ad Hoc, ‘Cruel Mistress’, Great Southern, Australia 2021

This great value Pinot Noir nose shows graphite, minerals and juicy black cherries. A hint of spicy oak plays a supporting role. The palate is softly textured, fresh and vibrant, the flavours of black cherry and earthy beetroot carried along by a fine, long acid finish. Perfect with pheasant or a game stew.

Saint Clair, ‘Origin’ Pinot Noir, Marlborough, New Zealand 2022

A flavoursome Kiwi Pinot Noir from a pioneering Marlborough producer. Aromas of ripe red berries are interlaced with spice and blackcurrant bud. The palate is full and rich, with flavours of vibrant red berries, layered with warm, spiced fruit through to a silky finish.

Stanton & Killeen, Rutherglen Muscat, Rutherglen, Australia NV

From Rutherglen, the home of the Australian sticky, this fabulously sweet dessert wine is light amber in colour, with floral notes of crushed rose petal, lavender and orange blossom. The palate is full of rich raisins and Turkish delight with a smooth, velvety palate, and a lingering finish.
