Coto de Imaz, El Coto Winery – Spain
The Spanish regulatering Board gave this wine higher points than the 1999 Vintage. Red brick colour, with the orange tones inherent in Rioja. Velvety and round in the mouth, it fills with long lasting sensations. The wine shows a wide range of delicate red fruit wrapped by the smoky nuances and the vanilla hints from the new American oak. The pleasant and smooth tannins from the Tempranillo and it’s well achieved balance assure this wine in excellent evolution.
Jordan Chardonnay – South Africa
The wine was matured ‘sur-lie’ in barrels for some months with occasional rolling of the barrels to accentuate the leesy character. 12% tank fermented Chardonnay was blended with the wines from the barrels to ensure a good balance of citrus flavours’ A powerful expression of Chardonnay, brimming with fruit flavour and elegance. A buttery toastiness from a hint of oak rounds off the complex hazelnut and citrus flavours.
Fairfield Sauv. Blanc - New Zealand
