Welcome to Lanchester Wines

Welcome to Lanchester Wines

Lanchester Wines is one of the UK’s leading supplier of quality wines and spirits to

the trade, successfully operating and innovating across every element of the UK wine

industry.

Established in 1980, we’ve never lost focus on what’s important and that’s

consistently over-delivering on quality and service. Our portfolio is relevant and

credible, and we have over 3,000 SKUs across the business. This provides our

customers with wines and spirits to meet every requirement, from some of the finest

wines in the world, through to award-winning house wines.

We’re an independent, family-owned business which allows us to focus on delivering

quality products and service over dividends, and to be both flexible and fast moving in

line with the ever changing global wine market.

We also feel strongly that it’s our duty to preserve our planet, which is why we’ve to

date invested £8million in developing clean, renewable energy and heat generation for

our offices and warehouses which greatly reduces our business’ carbon footprint.

Introduction

In October 2017, reports of global wine shortages and looming price hikes

surfaced after a notably difficult growing season. The production decline

affected nearly every region worldwide, though Europe was hit particularly

badly, experiencing its worst grape harvest in over 30 years.

What a difference a year can make. Thankfully, this year’s harvest reports make for

much more positive reading with reports with most regions reporting either ‘typical’

or record years. However, this doesn’t mean we’re resting on our laurels and our

buying team has been working harder than ever to maintain consistent supplier for our

customers at both the quality and price they – and their customers – expect.

The wine trade witnessed the demise of a number of major businesses over the

last twelve months, however our business continues to grow. We move into the new

financial year with new listings, busy and profitable warehouses, and an impetus to

move into increased profitability.

Tracking consumer insights is more important than ever. Statistics show alcohol

consumption is in decline with Brits drinking one less alcoholic drink each week on

average and Millennials in particular more concerned about the quantity of alcohol they

imbibe.

As a leading supplier of alcohol, we understand the need to innovate our offering to

ensure our customers can provide for their customers. We’ve extended the availability

of wines in 37.5cl half bottles (page 89) and will relaunch our Dragon Tree Kombucha

which has been created for today’s health-conscious consumer seeking an alternative

soft drink whether in or out of home (page 11).

As a forward thinking business, we believe sustainability will continue to rise to the

top of the agenda. We already generate over 5.5million Kilowatt hours of renewable

energy per year which powers our site and we have further leading edge innovations

coming to fruition in 2019 (page 5).

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the last 12 months and

we all look forward to working with you into the future.

Tony Cleary

Managing Director, Lanchester Wines


A Sustainable Wine Size Business

Matters

We believe every business has a duty of care to minimise its impact on the environment,

which is why Lanchester Wines and the wider Lanchester group of companies has

worked tirelessly over the last decade to ensure sustainability is at our core.

There is, unfortunately, no ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to sustainability and

so we’ve invested considerably to identify which changes we can make to lessen our

effect on our planet.

Our business’ greatest opportunity to make a change is through minimising our reliance

on fossil fuels. As such, we’ve invested over £8million in renewable heat and energy

generation at our sites across the North East of England and today our business is

powered almost completely by renewable wind and solar energy.



Our four wind turbines produce around 5.5million kWh (kilowatt hours) of

clean, renewable electricity per year. We use around 42% of this electricity to

run operations at our Greencroft Estate (including Lanchester Wines, Greencroft

Bottling and Lanchester Gifts) with the remaining electricity – enough to power

800 three bedroom homes - feeding into the National Grid for use within our local

community.

We also have a 41 kilowatt solar array on the roof of Lanchester Wines’ office

complex, which is calculated to produce enough clean electricity to cover our

day-to-day use. The chemical reactions which occur within solar panels are more

efficient at cooler temperatures so County Durham’s bright and sunny, yet rather

chilly, weather is perfect for our solar panels.

As a business, we continue to

make choices about our long-term

sustainability which go above and

beyond both legislation and common

practice. We are pioneering worldchanging

heat pump technology

using water from disused mines at

our warehouses in Gateshead. Due

to launch this year, this will not only

enable our customers to further

reduce their carbon footprint, but also

revolutionise how clean technology

can be used in former mining areas

across the world.

Our aim is to be the greenest and

most sustainable wine business in

the world and we believe we’re well

on the way.

Port and Portugal

Why Portugal is one to watch in 2019

Por que Portugal é um para assistir em 2019

If you fast forward to page 59 you’ll see our selection of Portuguese wines has grown

considerably. This is because we believe Portuguese wines will become increasingly

popular with your customers this year, and here’s why.

While Port and Vinho Verde remain the most well known of wines from Portugal, overall

sales of Portuguese wines in the UK are up over 37% in volume and almost 46% in

value last year – and this trends shows no signs of slowing.

The country boasts over 250 indigenous grape varieties leading some wine experts to

name Portugal as the last frontier of wine in Western Europe; there is still so much to be

tasted and explored. Which is an attractive proposition for the wine curious customer,

keen to seek out new wines on an exploratory oenological journey.

Of all Portugal’s 14 Vinho Regional (wine regions), the north eastern region of Douro is

considered one of the best.

The Douro River, Portugal

The steep, terraced vineyards along the Douro River have been producing world class

wines for centuries – and are so impressive the entire region was made a UNESCO

world heritage site. Wines were mostly in the form of the famous dessert wine, port

however, in the last few decades still wines are emerging from the shadows. Because

there were already established vineyards and talented winemakers in the area, the

region’s production grew rapidly and with outstanding quality.

It’s because of this superiority and reputation that Douro wines make up the majority of

our Portuguese wine selection. We have created a range of wines to suit all customers,

tastes and budgets – each wine is outstanding and we’re confident you’ll agree.

The Argentinian wine industry has seen

significant growth over the past five years, as

has the quality of the wine produced. Chile

previously dominated South American wine

exports but Argentina makes almost five times

as much wine, and has been catching up fast

on export markets.

Located in the eastern foothills of the Andes, in

the shadow of Mount Aconcagua, the Mendoza

Province is Argentina’s most important wine

region, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the

country’s entire wine production. Vineyards are

planted at some of the highest altitudes in the

world, with the average site located 600–1,100

metres (2,000–3,600 ft) above sea level.

Team Selection

Ian Richardson: For an Argentine wine choice it

has to be Malbec, which has become its own

super varietal - my personal favourite is Square

Ranch. It’s packed with bramble fruit and ripe

dark plum, with light spice and smooth tannin. A

great drink either with steak or by itself.

These are complemented by distinctive mineral notes and in

the mouth, the palate is prolonged and deep. A wine of grand

structure and acidity.

This is 100% Malbec grown in the calcareous soils of Paraje

Altamira, Uco Valley. As the label illustrates, the wine is

fermented and aged in concrete as opposed to stainless steel

tanks or oak barriques. Its strong and ripped, bold and peppery.

balanced with good length.

Nestled in the department of Tupungato in the

province of Mendoza, lies the Gouguenheim

Winery. Its location in the foothills of the Andes

Mountains, with vineyards at more than 1,000m

altitudes, means there is a huge difference

between wines from this region with those that

come from other parts of Mendoza.

Established by Patricio Gouguenheim nearly

20 years ago, it was in 2014 that the winery

became the first in the country to make and

sell a sparkling wine made from the country’s

signature grape called Malbec Bubbles Rosé

After searching extensively across several regions of Argentina, François

Lurton planted his vines in the Uco Valley, in the foothills of the Andes

Cordillera, at an altitude of 1,100 m, in semi-desert conditions.

A pioneer of the Uco Valley, he built his winery, Bodega Piedra Negra, in

a few years later, would become the Geographical Indication of Los

A U S T R A L I A

From the iconic to the lesser known,

Australia’s 65 wine regions each boast

distinct characteristics, and the country’s

grape growing and winemaking

continues to evolve.

Australia is the second largest source of wine

imports into the UK by volume and third largest

by value, while the UK is Australia’s largest

export market in volume terms, accounting

for approximately 28% of total exported wine

volume in 2017.

Around 80% of Australian wine is shipped to the

UK as bulk for bottling in market.

Team Selection

Ian Richardson: This is the year of Italians

down under, with Australian winemakers

increasingly using classic Italian varietals such

as Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Fiano etc. We’re

also seeing some exciting blends combining

these classic grapes with Australian favourites

(check out Aquarius Sangiovese Shiraz, page

22).

My personal favourite is the new Bella Luna

Nero d’Avola from McPherson Wines in Victoria.

The nose is floral with a touch of spice, yet

earthy with lots of character. This wine delivers

on fruit and style and is a great all-rounder.

Celebrating

Andrew and Nicki McPherson established a small vineyard in Central Victoria, Australia in

1968. With their family’s help they built one of Australia’s leading wineries and are widely

recognised as pioneers of the Australian Wine Industry.

Today, McPherson Wines are being enjoyed in 26 countries across the globe

and are one of Australia’s largest family-owned wineries.

The wines are celebrated for their beautifully crafted, fruit-driven Australian style.

Jo Nash is McPherson’s winemaker. She believes

the wine is made in the vineyard, and makes

decisions in her vineyards in the early days to

influence the quality of wine in the glass. Throughout

the year she carefully manages the process - during

the growing season, at harvest, through the crush

to the wonderful barrels. With careful and thoughtful

attention to every vintage she attempts to bring some

of that magic she fell in love with so long ago into

every glass.

Reaching the big 5-0 is undoubtedly

a momentous occasion and certainly

cause for celebration, which is

exactly what McPherson Wine Co

did throughout 2018 as it celebrated

its half-century. In true McPherson

style, celebrations took place across

the world from the UK to Germany,

China, USA and, of course,

Australia. And, we continue to

celebrate this momentous year long

into the future through celebratory

wines created to mark the occasion.

Chile is geographically and climatically

dominated by the Andes to the east and the

Pacific Ocean to the west with its vineyards

found along an 800-mile stretch of land from

the northern Atacama Region to the Bío Bío

Region in the south. The climate is varied with

the northerly regions being very hot and dry

compared to the cooler, wetter regions in the

south which creates a widely varied viticulture.

The Valle Central is Chile’s most productive and

internationally known wine region, due in large

part to its proximity to the country’s capital,

Santiago. It spans the O’Higgins and Maule

administrative regions as well as the

Metropolitana Region, and within it are four

subregions: Maipo Valley, Rapel Valley, Curicó

Valley and Maule Valley.

Team Selection

Michael O’Brien: Our Altaria range is a great

example of Chilean wine. My personal favourite

is Altaria Cabernet Sauvignon which has

opulent aromas of blackcurrant with spicy notes

and fine concentration, with rich and jammy

black fruit flavours.

journey of discovery to

some of the best wines

that Chile has to offer.

This intense, juicy red Malbec comes from the famed Valle

Central in Chile. THE BRAND Malbec has a fresh and fruity

nose with hints of plums, blackberries and a touch of vanilla

from gentle oak ageing.

While Sparkling dominates the English wine

category, still wine production is on the up

with wine producers having learned huge

amounts in recent years about the optimum

conditions for growing vines.

Whites are the best known of English wines

and are most commonly made from Germanorigin

grape varieties, most notably Bacchus.

Germanic varietals are also used within rosé

predominantly Rondo and Dornfelder. However,

Pinot Noir, which many say creates the best

English reds, also makes an excellent rosé and

we’re now seeing much more of that coming

through.

Team Selection

I’ve chosen Shoreline by the Lyme Bay Winery

flavour. Definitely one to try and excellent with

seafood.

With eight billion bottles produced every

year and 53 litres of wine per capita per year,

French wine-making is a serious business.

From the luscious green landscapes of

Bordeaux to Burgundy, and from the gorgeous

Loire Valley to the Rhone Valley and beyond,

wine in France is a unique art.

And, France celebrates these famed grape

growing regions which are linked to the concept

of terroir, making some regions more valuable

in the wine market than others. Appellation

d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) laws guarantee a

wine’s origins and style.

Team Selection

Mark Roberts: I’ve long been a champion of

Picpoul de Pinet, one of the oldest Languedoc

grapes. I’ve chosen our Picpoul de Pinet Racine

which has a soft, delicate nose and is extremely

drinkable.

It’s an excellent match with shellfish and other

crustaceans as it neutralises the salt and iodine,

and is surprisingly good with rich cheese and

charcuterie.

G E R M A N Y

The German wine business has changed out

of all recognition in the last 30 years and today

the country is home to nearly 135 different

grape varieties, from well-known favourites

such as Riesling and Pinot Noir, to the

lesser known such as Huxelrebe and Blauer

Lemberger.

With 64.5% of Germany’s vineyards dedicated

to producing knock-out white wine, and 11.5%

to Pinot Noir, it’s never been a more exciting

time for German wine production.

German wine is primarily produced in the

west of Germany, along the river Rhine and its

tributaries, with the oldest plantations going

back to the Roman era. Approximately 60% of

German wine production is

situated in the federal state of Rhineland-

Palatinate, where 6 of the 13 regions

Anbaugebiete) for quality wine are situated.

Team Selection

Emma Campbell: For a German wine

selection, for me it has to be a Riesling

and the Anselmann Auslese Edesheimer

Rosengarten 2012 is a great example of

fruity, crisp German Riesling at its finest.

I T A L Y

Italy is famous for food and wine, both of

which play an important part of the country’s

identity and culture. In fact, Italy produces

more wine than any other country using more

than 400 different grape varietals.

Two thirds of wine produced in Italy is either

‘DOC’ or ‘IGT’, with the country boasting a

number of famous and classic wine regions

which notably include:

- Piedmonte (which means, the foot of the

mountains), think Barolo & Barbaresco

- Veneto, Italy’s largest producing region

famous for Soave & Valpolicella

- Sicily, an upcoming region with Nero d’Avola

leading the charge.

- Tuscany, the spiritual home of both

Sangiovese and Chianti, two Italian classics.

Team selection

Tom Ochoa: Here at Lanchester Wines, we also

bring wines from the Abruzzo region and in

particular the province of the city of Chieti. From

here we import ‘Archivio Pecorino’ which has a

vibrant yellow glow, with complex hues of exotic

fruit and soft spice notes. On the palate, the

wine has perfect acidity levels, mineral notes

with an exotic fruit explosion.

This white wine is made of a rare and

now being rediscovered. ‘Isn’t Pecorino a

sheep’s milk cheese?’ Yes, it is the name

the well-known Italian cheese, but it is

also the name of this great grape variety.

According to local legend the variety gets

its name from the fact that the sheep

(‘pecora’ in Italian) enjoy nibbling the

leaves of this particular vine.

Le Argille

IT157

Cabernet di Cabernet 2014/15

6x75cl

A strong, serious and unique wine that ages in concrete barrels for two years and then in

bottle for at least six months. It is immaculate and free from barrel aromatic interference so

that its uniqueness is fully preserved along with its warm, refined and mature taste.

The wine is made up of a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and is

initially structured through Double Reasoned Maturation.

An intense ruby red colour with garnet highlights, aromas of blueberry, blackberry and wild

strawberries lead onto hints of plum, black cherries and vanilla with light nuances of tobacco,

dark chocolate and green pepper. In the mouth it is warm, elegant, mature and complex.

Notes of ripe berries and the wine is soft and pleasantly tannic, a long finish with good

aftertaste that calls for another glass.

‘Le Argille’ translates as ‘concrete’ in Italian paying hommage to both this excellent wine’s

packaging - presented in a cement-dipped bottle with wax seal and leather label - and also its

production process.

on around 1,500 hectares of vineyards. These are situated mainly

on hilly land at an average height of 350 metres with a yearly grape

production of about 200,000 quintals (around 20million kilograms).

The Chioccioli Altadonna Family Estate runs its own winery in Gaiole, Chianti with vineyard

holdings in two prime locations within the Chianti Classico area: Gaiole and Quercegrossa.

The two owners, brothers Niccolo and Enrico Chioccioli Altadonna, work

directly in the vineyards with the whole operations being carried out by hand

from pruning through to harvest and the final wine making. Attention to detail

is key in the winery starting from the double sorting of grapes, the vinification

technique and the use of the finest grained French oak barrels.

Great attention is paid to all details of vineyard management to achieve the

best polyphenolic ripening of the grapes. Strict low yields are maintained with a

typically production average of 30 hectolitres (3,000 litres) of wine per hectare.

barrels of the best selection of fine grain French oak, where the malolactic fermentation takes place. It

stays in barriques “sur lies” for 18 months. After bottling, a further period of maturation glass takes place

for at least six months before the wine is released. This is a wine of extraordinary identity, very intense,

elegant, refined, rich and complex with rich fruit notes of red and black berries and complex spices; sweet

tannins, dense, thick, voluminous, long and balanced with a fresh acidity leading to a long and intense

finish The terroir is the master of this wine, that is the perfect marriage of two great grape varieties.

When thinking of European wine regions,

Moldova may not be the first country

that springs to mind. However, Moldovan

winemaking dates back to 3000BC and

present day wine sector in Moldova is on an

upward trend with exports up 5.5% in 2017.

Moldova is situated in the South-East of Europe

between Ukraine and Romania in the Black Sea

basin. The country lies on the same latitude as

Bordeaux though its climate is more continental

creating ideal conditions for growing grapes.

The four key Moldovan wine growing regions

are: Balti (northern zone), Codru (central

zone, Purcari (south-eastern zone) and Cahul

(southern zone)

Team Selection:

Loren Hardwick – For me, Pinot Grigio shows

Moldovan winemaking at its finest, creating a

New Zealand may be thought of as a cool

climate producer however the summer of

2017/18 was the hottest on record. This

resulted in early harvest in some regions

however, the tail end of cyclones Gita & Fehi

brought over 100mm of rain resulting in a

very soggy end and, subsequently, a smaller

harvest than anticipated (only 419,000 tonnes).

Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are the

undoubted heroes of New Zealand wine with

the former accounting for circa 80% of the

country’s total harvest.

Team Selection

Ian Richardson: Our Nika Tiki range is

undoubtedly our New Zealand wine star

celebrating the best of Marlborough’s

Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

And, this year we’re adding a Sauvignon Blanc

Rose to the range which will be perfect for the

summer.

Marlborough

New Zealand

Marlborough put New Zealand on the international wine stage in the 1980s with its

exquisite Sauvignon Blanc. Over 20,000ha of vines (around ⅔ of the national total) are under

the care of local wine producers, making it the country’s largest wine region.

A combination of a cool yet high sunshine climate, low rainfall and free-draining, moderately

fertile soil produces uniquely vivid wines. Hailed as one of New Zealand’s most sunny and dry

regions, Maori referred to Marlborough’s Wairau Valley as ‘Kei puta te Wairau’ – ‘The place

with the hole in the cloud’.

P O R T U G A L

Despite its size, Portugal is among the 10

largest wine-producing countries in the world

with still wine sales up 37.1% by volume and

45.8% by value in the UK last year.

Portugal has more indigenous grape varieties

than any other country – more than 250 plus

a few imports (ie Alicante Bouschet) that have

adapted well to the Portuguese landscape. And,

because Portugal’s wine culture developed in

relative isolation, there are many grape varieties

that do not grow anywhere else in the world.

Team Selection:

Loren Hardwick: For something a little different,

try the Vallegre Colheita Rosé, from the Douro.

Its produced using a blend of Touriga Nacional

and Touriga Franca to create a soft and fresh

wine with flavours of raspberries and currants.


Portugal

Vallegre

Vallegre is a Portuguese family business which, for five generations, has

been deeply rooted in the Douro Region, the oldest demarcated wine

growing region in the world.

The head office is located at Quinta da Vista Alegre, just a few kilometres from Pinhão - Vista

Alegre in Spanish means ‘happy view’ which makes reference to the name of one of Vallegre’s

most beautiful vineyards. The unspoilt and magnificent surrounding landscape, given its

privileged geographical location, offers visitors breathtaking views of the Douro River.

The name Vallegre is the merging of two of the winery’s most important Quintas - Valle Longo

and Vista Alegre.

After a careful and classic vinification,

the wine spent 22 months in new French

oak casks. It is unfiltered and was not

cold stabilised in order to preserve all its

natural qualities. It will therefore with time

throw a natural sediment in the bottle. We

recommend decantation of this weighty

Smart Dog

Behind the dapper pooch (who answers to Pingo apparently)

on this very smart label is a delicious full bodied red showcasing

excellent examples of Portuguese varietals. Syrah is top dog

in this blend, with a small amount of Trincadira, an

ancient Portuguese grape notoriously hard to grow

and traditionally used in Port. This contributes an

intense colour, herby aroma and a rich depth to the

tannins. An enticing aroma is followed by a full palate

of ripe dark fruits and spices, along with a mineral

tone.

winemaker taking a stroll with his canine friend

when Pingo ran away, only to be found hours

later digging for a bone. But he found something

special. Do you want to know what he found? Well,

so do we, because that’s where the story ends.

R O M A N I A

It may surprise you to learn Romania is the

sixth biggest wine producing country in

Europe, with around 4m hectolitres produced

annually. While many of the key grape varieties

are now similar to the rest of Europe - Merlot,

Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay,

Sauvignon Blanc - some domestic varieties

of note include reds Băbească and Fetească

Neagră, and whites Fetească Regală,

Francusa, Grasă, Galbena, Busuioacă de

Bohotin and Tămâioasă Românească.

Romania’s continental climate of hot summers

and cold winters is ideal for vine growing.

There are eight wine regions, each named after

geographical regions: Transylvania Highlands,

Moldavian Hills, Muntenia Hills, Oltenia Hills,

Banat Hills, Dobrogea Hills, Crișana Maramureș

Hills and The Danube Terraces.

Team Selection:

Steve Machin: Recas wines are great examples

of modern Romanian wine making. Created at

the Cramele Recase Estate on the far western

fringes of Romania’s Transylvania / Banat

region, these are fresh, fruit driven wines at

great value.


Romania

Recas

The Cramele Recas estate is located on the far western fringes of

Romania`s Transylvania / Banat region, where wines have been produced

since the mid 15th century.

Oldest records of the Cramele Recas winery date back to 1447 when the

lord of Severin, Mihail de Ciorna, purchased the vineyards in Recas. Its

modern history began 20 years ago when current winery owners bought the Cramele Recas

winery off the Romanian government for $1 million and started a programme of significant

investment growing the winery to 980 hectares.

During these two decades, Cramele Recas has grown into the largest exporter of Romanian

wine, with a capacity to produce 20 million bottles.

The winery produces 12-13 million bottles of wine a year, with capacity to go to 20 million; it

makes 68 different types of wine across 300 labels using 21 different grape varieties; turns

over €30 million pa, making it Romania’s second largest winery and it exports a third of its

wine to the UK, making it the largest Romanian winery in export terms.

S O U T H A F R I C A

South Africa is firmly established as one of the

top 10 wine producing countries of the world

with over 10m hl produced annually. Over

the past 20 years wine imports from South

Africa have grown exponentially, largely due to

offering great quality and value. In 2018 the UK

was South Africa’s number one export market.

The country’s climate is ideal for wine making

with the topography of the land creating

hundreds of microclimates which in turn

produce wines of various styles. The majority

of wine making occurs on the Northern

and Western capes with regions such as

Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek and

Robertson producing some fantastically fresh

wines at great value for money.

Team Selection:

Steve Machin: The top six grapes produced

in South Africa are Chenin (known locally as

Steen), Cabernet Sauvignon, Colombard,

Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. South

African Merlot tend to be made as a varietal in

a chocolately, glossy California style and our

Waters Edge Merlot is a great example with

lively cherry and blackberry flavours alongside

hints of cocoa and violets.

S P A I N

Rioja maintains its dominance as Spain’s

flagship wine region in the UK and accounts

for nearly half of all Spanish wine sold by value

and 38% of Spanish wine by volume.

While the Rioja category is dominated by sales

of Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva there are

positive figures in the UK for whites from Rioja

with volume up 61%. There are six traditional

Spanish white grape varieties and three

international grapes permitted in its production,

the most prominent being Viura, which must be

a minimum of 51% of the blend. There are two

key styles of White Rioja: light, lemony-fresh

tangy whites and full-bodied, rich and nutty

whites. Our top pick with the growing trend for

white Rioja is Abadia Milagro’s Rioja Blanco

2017 which is a fresh and fruity example of

Viura and is ideal served as an aperitif or a

perfect partner to fish and seafood.

Team Selection:

Loren Hardwick: Another gem in Abadia

Milagro’s stable is the 5 Oros Graciano. A wine

made from 100% Graciano is rare in Rioja as it

is notoriously low-yielding and susceptible to

downy mildew. It is typically used as a blending

grape with Tempranillo and other varietals in

Rioja. However, with care and attention in the

vineyard, made on its own it produces spicy,

aromatic and intensely flavoured wines making

it arguably the most interesting red grape variety

in Rioja.

U S A

Until the 1960’s, American wines were

considered inexpensive and was largely

consumed domestically. Roll forward 40-50

years and the USA is now the 4th largest

wine producing country in the world.

Each of the USA’s incredible wine regions has

a very different style, approach and result.

For example:

- California, most notably the world famous

‘Napa Valley’. Napa is famed for its Chardonnay,

Pinot Noirs and Zinfandels, and is the birthplace

of White Zinfandel

- Washington State, an emerging wine region

in terms of UK Sales and frankly, an exciting one

too. With Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and

Riesling all being produced with some stunning

results.

- Oregon, wine making dates back to pioneer

times in the 1840s with commercial production

beginning in the 1960s. Grapes grown here

include Tempranillo, Baco Noir, Pinot Noir,

Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay,

Riesling, Grüner Veltliner and a host of lesser

known Vitis Vinifera.

Team Selection:

Tom Ochoa: From Washington State we

have the irresistible Charles & Charles wines.

Winemakers Charles Smith & Charles Bieler join

forces to make a Cabernet/Syrah, Chardonnay,

Rose and their show stopping, single vineyard

Riesling. The Riesling has a well textured body

with notes of honeysuckle, white peach, baked

apple and spice with great minerality, and a

finish so long you may have to ask your guests

to leave!

Napa Cellars is a true Napa Valley Classic since

1976. Though Napa Valley is small — 30 miles long

and only a few miles across as its widest point — its

varied microclimates and soils make it possible to

successfully grow a variety of wine grapes.

This gives Napa Cellars the luxury to choose the

best fruit for each wine it makes without ever having

to look beyond the Napa Valley.

Sauvignon Blanc

2016

US258 12x75cl

Green apple, spring grass, melon and

passion fruit aromas followed by white

peach and honey tones. Full and lively

on the palate, flavours of guava, lemon,

grapefruit, floral notes and subtle hints

of lime complement a crisp and bright

acidity. The body has a round mouthfeel

and the delectable finish is clean and

long with beautiful minerality. Fruit

for this wine is meticulously selected

several sub-appellations in the warmer

regions of Napa Valley, such as St.

Helena, Yountville and Calistoga, to

better tease out the vibrant aromas

and flavours that make this varietal so

appealing.

US260

Pinot Noir

12x75cl

Beautiful aromas of black cherry,

cola, earth, spice and dark caramel.

Abundant flavours of cherry pie, dark

fruit, toasted pie crust and dried herbs

are framed by rich vanilla notes on the

palate. Well structured with a balanced

acidity leading to a long and lingering

finish. The grapes were sourced

exclusively from premier vineyards

in the southern part of Napa Valley

where the San Pablo Bay creates a

cool, maritime climate. Morning fog

rolls across the vines, ushering in the

cool breezes ideal for growing delicate,

flavourful Pinot Noir.

US259

Chardonnay

12x75cl

Aromas of vanilla, caramel, honey

melon and hints of baked apple crisp

excite the senses. Meyer lemon melds

with toasted coconut flakes to thrill

marshmallows roasting over a campfire.

Soft, balanced acidity and creamy

finish. Grapes were selected from

vineyards in renowned Chardonnay

locations including south Napa Valley

and Oak Knoll. The proximity of these

vineyards to the fog and breeze from

San Francisco and Marin Bay creates

a cooler climate, which is ideal for

growing Chardonnay.

Lush flavours of ripe jam with notes of

a smooth, juicy and lasting mouthfeel.

This Zinfandel is made with grapes

hand-selected from vineyards in the

warmer areas of Napa Valley, including

St. Helena, Yountville, Oak Knoll and

Calistoga. Zinfandel grows best in

warmer climates, and sourcing grapes

from these areas results in complex

and concentrated fruit. Zinfandel is

not nearly as ubiquitous as Cabernet

Sauvignon in Napa Valley, and makes

up roughly 2% of total acreage.

Half Bottle Range (375ml)

As the trend for drinking less but better shows no sign of slowing, we’ve responded this year

through the expansion of our half bottle ranges. New for 2019 are Otra Tierra Merlot and

Sauvignon Blanc from our Chilean range.

We’ve listened to consumer insights which show drinkers are keen to cut down on waste and

curb their midweek consumption, and half bottles fit this remit perfectly. Recent data from

Nielsen has found alcohol consumption is in decline, with Brits drinking one less alcoholic

drink each week on average and Millennials in particular more concerned about the quantity of

alcohol they imbibe.

Export

A global wine business

While Lanchester Wines may be headquartered in the UK, we’re a global business

with an established and ever growing export arm. We also have a dedicated, full time

sales team based in Ireland working across both Eire and Northern Ireland

Our export team and our partners presently distribute Lanchester Wines products

across Europe, Scandinavia, Iceland and the Middle East, with more markets in

development. As a business, we have experience exporting to every continent. Our

customers include travel retail, airlines, hotel groups, leisure corporations, wholesalers,

on trade and retailers.

The key to our success is understanding each market – its focus, its approach and,

most importantly, the different preferences / tastes of its consumers. No two markets

are the same and we approach each customer with a bespoke offering.

We work closely with our sister company Greencroft Bottling whose reputation

for outstanding quality is recognised globally. We’ve developed a strong working

relationship with many wineries across the southern hemisphere.

Bonding and Distribution

Lanchester Wines operates a Class A bonded warehouse system over four large

warehouses in the North East of England.

Combined, these four sites cover an area in excess of 920,000 ft 2 of high quality,

bonded warehousing. Importantly, all sites are wholly owned by the Lanchester group

of companies and we still have room to grow.

From these warehouses, our fleet of 11 delivery vehicles and our external partners

distribute our wines to customers seven days a week, handling close to 4,000 pallets

of wine a day.

We understand our need to reduce our impact on the environment and continue to

invest in renewable energy and heat generation across our sites. Wind turbines,

solar panels and air source heat pumps provide power for our County Durham

headquarters, while two of our sites in nearby Gateshead have been fitted with the

UK’s second largest open loop ground source heat pump system capable of producing

up to four megawatts of heat.

All warehousing owned by our business undergoes ongoing maintenance. Each site

has been completely refurbished including exterior cladding, new roofs, new electricity

and plumbing systems, and enhanced security to bring each property in-line with

HMRC requirements for bonded facilities.

We’ve invested in an innovative Joloda system, the first of its kind in the UK wine

market. Installed across all Lanchester Wines sites, we can load 24 pallets onto a

waiting truck in just 85 seconds, compared to around 35 minutes for traditional loading

systems. As you can imagine, this system radically reduces driver downtime and

increases efficiencies.
