INTRODUCTION<br />

Embark On An Exploration Of Taste And Quality With <strong>James</strong> <strong>Pettit</strong> & Co<br />

Our prestigious award-winning portfolio is expanding,<br />

and our global partnerships continue to flourish. From the<br />

cherished family-run vineyards to the avant-garde and the<br />

delightfully eccentric, we leave no stone unturned in our<br />

quest to procure extraordinary wines for the discerning UK<br />

on-trade market.<br />

But who are we?<br />

Once the venerable wine and spirits division of the Aylesbury<br />

Brewery Company, <strong>James</strong> <strong>Pettit</strong> stands as a stalwart Wine<br />

Merchants establishment, its roots stretching back to 1737.<br />

Our unwavering commitment to service, quality, and, above<br />

all, empowering the wine category, sets us apart.<br />

Gone are the days of patrons effortlessly streaming through<br />

your venue's doors. Today, their time and wallets are pulled<br />

in countless directions, making the art of offering the perfect<br />

selection a complex endeavour. In an era of price pressures,<br />

escalating living costs, evolving duty regulations, and a shift<br />

towards mindful consumption, striking that perfect balance<br />

between customer satisfaction and business prosperity can<br />

seem daunting.<br />

Having assumed the helm of <strong>James</strong> <strong>Pettit</strong> & Co in 2010<br />

under the Dayla banner, I've witnessed the wine industry's<br />

ceaseless evolution. We've adapted in tandem, embracing<br />

ecological responsibility with a focus on organic, biodynamic,<br />

and natural wines. Our vegan wine selection burgeons as we<br />

respond to the choices of a conscientious clientele.<br />

But, our most significant investment has been in our people.<br />

With three dedicated and seasoned "Wine Development<br />

Managers" complementing our account managers, we<br />

possess an in-depth understanding of the ever-evolving<br />

marketplace we all navigate. As you explore our diverse<br />

range, you'll discern that it caters to every palate.<br />

In essence, we are here to consult, to understand your<br />

unique business, and to craft something bespoke and<br />

purposeful. In a world awash with uniformity,<br />

we empower you to stand out distinctly.<br />

Here's to a prosperous partnership!<br />

- Tim Nortje, Head of <strong>James</strong> <strong>Pettit</strong><br />

Modern customers don't just converse; they capture<br />

moments and opinions, sharing them across their chosen<br />

digital platforms as they seek memorable experiences.<br />

Amidst this dynamic landscape, rest assured, we are your<br />

unwavering support.<br />

ARGENTINA<br />

Salta<br />

Patagonia<br />

Argentina’s appearance and rise on the international<br />

wine map is a very recent story with little or no exports<br />

on the run up to the 1990’s and now sitting 6th in the<br />

world’s wine production. After many years of economic<br />

chaos and stagnation we have seen massive investment<br />

coming into the region, rejuvenating their old cellars,<br />

building modern wineries.<br />

Located in the South American continent in a territory<br />

that is four times larger than France, Argentina is one of<br />

the world’s nature reserves. Privileged with outstanding<br />

natural richness and extraordinarily diverse landscapes,<br />

Argentina boasts high mountains and plains, lush<br />

vegetation and extreme deserts, forests and steppes,<br />

glaciers and waterfalls.<br />

The wealth of natural ecosystems includes vast, highly<br />

productive grape growing regions stretching at the<br />

foot of the Andean strip to the West of the country,<br />

from latitude 22˚ south to latitude 42˚ south. It is in<br />

this context with five centuries of development, that<br />

Argentina has crafted such an extraordinary wine<br />

industry. The altitude, the wide range of temperatures<br />

and local know-how. The new technologies and a<br />

deeply rooted popular wine culture lends their wines<br />

probably think of this as the “World’s Malbec<br />

We at <strong>James</strong> <strong>Pettit</strong> have seen our Argentinian<br />

category continue to grow, not just in volume<br />

but variety too. We can now see that when<br />

we structure a new wine list Argentinian<br />

Malbec is a must by the glass, and even listing<br />

a few by the bottle too. Added to this, we are<br />

seeing consumers looking to other varieties<br />

as they explore the region.<br />

World Malbec Day<br />

17th April<br />

Our Favourite Facts About Malbec<br />

Argentina “Saved” Malbec<br />

Today, Argentina leads production of the grape with over 75% of all the acres of Malbec in the world.<br />

In a way, Argentina reinvigorated Malbec as one of the top 18 noble grapes. Now it grows<br />

in several countries and continues to grow in popularity.<br />

Malbec’s Blind Tasting Tell<br />

Look for a magenta-tinged rim. Malbec wine is a deep purple-red that is nearly opaque,<br />

similar to Syrah and Mourvedre. However, Malbec wines will often have a bright magenta rim.<br />

A tell! Why not host a blind tasting party of your own.<br />

Umami Lover<br />

Unlike Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec doesn’t have a super long finish. Because of this, Malbec<br />

is great with leaner red meats (ostrich anyone?). The wine does extremely well with funky flavours<br />

like blue cheese and rustic flavours like mushrooms and cumin spice.

AUSTRALIA<br />

The UK accounted for some 25% of Australia's<br />

exports by value and when you consider that<br />

through lockdown those exports remained<br />

pretty steady, some $4.4 billion. This just seems<br />

to show how the big brands of the Off-Trade<br />

seem to dominate and drive sales, it also shows<br />

the following the UK have for Aussie wines.<br />

Western Australia<br />

South Australia<br />

New South Wales<br />

Victoria<br />

Australia, though, is more than just the big<br />

brands. This remarkable country is home to an<br />

amazing array of diverse climates, and these are<br />

reflected in their unique and regionally distinct<br />

wines. If the Off-Trade is very much dominated<br />

by big brands, the On-Trade then is all about<br />

developing this regional diversity.<br />

New South Wales was the site of Australia’s first<br />

vineyard and winery, established in the early<br />

1800s. South Australia is home to some of the<br />

worlds’ oldest vines, dating back to the 1850s.<br />

More than 60 designated wine regions produce<br />

in excess of 100 different grape varieties and is<br />

one of the largest wine producing countries in<br />

the world. Back in the 1990’s there were fewer<br />

than 1000 wineries with all the majority of the<br />

CHILE<br />

limari valley<br />

casablanca<br />

maipo<br />

maule valley<br />

There are not many other counties who seem to be continually<br />

developing new wine regions as rapidly as Chile. It is a country<br />

that is beset geographic barriers – the Atacama Desert to the<br />

north, the Andes Mountains to the east, the Patagonian ice<br />

fields to the South and the Pacific Ocean to the west – all of<br />

which make Chile a veritable agricultural island.<br />

Chile made its reputation as a producer of relatively low<br />

cost Cabernet and Merlot grown with enviable ease in the<br />

Central Valley, now the viticultural limits are being tested in<br />

all directions. Their wines becoming more refined and more<br />

regionally distinct. No longer do we find Chilean wines just<br />

along the narrow corridor bounded by the Pacific cool winds<br />

or the Soaring Andes. If Argentina is about altitude then<br />

perhaps with Chile it is about latitude.<br />

Chile is exceptionally well suited to vine growing. Its barriers<br />

protecting it from the Phylloxera louse which devastated<br />

Europe in the 19th century.<br />

The UK is still the 2nd largest export market for Chilean wine<br />

“Chile made its<br />

reputation as a<br />

producer of<br />

relatively low cost<br />

Cabernet and<br />

Merlot”<br />

The consumer has a very positive feeling<br />

towards Chile and is looking for point of<br />

difference and better quality. To this end we<br />

have introduced a range of wines to service<br />

the entry styles we all know and love but<br />

importantly also including a range of wines<br />

that start to step up with wines from different<br />

regions at varying altitudes and delivering<br />

styles that have a definite nod to the old<br />

world Bordeaux and Rhone.<br />

ENGLAND<br />

Who would have thought that English wines would<br />

have gained such popularity with the general public.<br />

The ever changing climate and the developing of the<br />

English sparkling market has seen brands develop<br />

with a strong UK following. Think, Nyetimber or<br />

Bolney or even Rathfinny.<br />

“Sales have increased by nearly 70% over the past<br />

two years and the number of vines planted each<br />

year has averaged more than 1.6m recently. There<br />

seems no deceleration in the pace of innovation,<br />

product development and consumer engagement.”<br />

Simon Thorpe MW CEO, WineGB<br />

We at <strong>James</strong> <strong>Pettit</strong> have seen this trend continue<br />

with strong sales through the Pandemic years and<br />

on through 2022/ 23. The demand in the On-Trade<br />

continues steadily. The reality is; the steady growth<br />

we see is off a small base as the vineyards struggle<br />

to meet the demand and all are having to work with<br />

allocation levels.<br />

Sussex<br />

Kent<br />

We continue to see innovation with the likes of Folc,<br />

beautifully presented bottle selling a feeling or style<br />

which harks towards Provence but is quintessentially<br />

English at heart.<br />

“Style which harks<br />

towards Provence but<br />

is quintessentially<br />

English at heart”<br />

When we see volume decline in the On-Trade<br />

industry, thinking how we can premiumise to<br />

grow margin should be sitting in the back of<br />

our minds and English wines all sit at a premium<br />

especially with the high cost of production.<br />

We are not only seeing lots of attention and<br />

recognition rising for the sparkling wines but<br />

also for the still wines of Bacchus, Pinot Gris &<br />

Pinot Blanc. The classic Champagne varieties<br />

continue delivering great quality but suffer<br />

from the ability to deliver the volume. This<br />

then seems to be the standard when trying to<br />

make wine in England.<br />

FRANCE<br />

“France was the leading country of origin for wine imported<br />

France is the leading country of origin for wine imported (by value) into the United Kingdom in 2022.<br />

This was not the case in 2017/18. France has needed to innovate, and there have been, and are,<br />

serious contenders producing beautiful wines from around the world.<br />

For some wineries the wine is all about the region, its heritage and therefore its style. Building on the<br />

shoulders of their predecessors. For others, it has been about looking out into the wider world<br />

and bringing their enthusiasm and passion to bear.<br />

Champagne, Burgundy, Loire, Bordeaux and the Rhone continue to feature strongly in the<br />

On-Trade but demand and harvest with poor yields have invariably seen the prices rise<br />

and availability in some cases just fall away.<br />

The Languedoc and Roussilon as well as the regions of Provence and Luberon have been the<br />

work horse of the On-Trade delivering innovation and styles that help to drive sales and<br />

deliver margin back into the On-Trade.<br />

PROVENCE<br />

France<br />

This fascinating French region sits along the Mediterranean coast, bordered by the Rhone River to the west, the Côte<br />

d’Azur to the east. Wine has been made here for over 2.5 Centuries, making Provence the oldest wine-producing<br />

region of France.<br />

Provence is blessed with a fantastic climate, especially for grapes! The region gets lots of sunshine and not too<br />

much rain with warm days and cool evenings. The Mediterranean moderates the temperatures, and the famous<br />

“Mistral” wind keeps the vineyards dry, free of pests. We can see the profound impact that Provence roses have had<br />

in the world of wine, with styles imitating this from around the world.<br />

BORDEAUX<br />

France<br />

Bordeaux is divided along its rivers, the left bank on the Atlantic Ocean side of the rivers Gironde and Garonnne, the<br />

right bank to the right and north of the Dordogne river, which also feeds into the Gironde. The area in between the<br />

rivers is known as Entre Deux Mers or between two seas in French. We know the region’s best wine estates, even<br />

if they only comprise a small proportion of the area’s 120,000ha. The vines that stretch right across the Gironde<br />

department in Aquitaine likely trace their ancestral roots back around 2,000 years to when the Romans ruled the area.<br />

Italy is a dynamic place to make wine and is<br />

home to 20 different regions and hundreds<br />

of different grape varieties, providing ample<br />

choice for producers to create a mindboggling<br />

array of styles. Each region is also<br />

home to its own patchwork of different soil<br />

types, altitudes, and winemaking techniques.<br />

The variation from village to village, region to<br />

region, north to south, is seemingly endless.<br />

It is no wonder that Italy is home to so many<br />

exciting producers who are every bit as<br />

dynamic as the wines they create.<br />

NEW ZEALAND<br />

New Zealand’s wine regions extend from<br />

subtropical Northland down to Central Otago,<br />

the world’s most southerly vineyards. The<br />

country’s vineyards benefit from a maritime<br />

climate with long sunshine hours and nights<br />

cooled by sea breezes.<br />

Most of the wine regions are found on the<br />

eastern coastlines of the North and South<br />

Islands, in the rain shadow of the mountains,<br />

each with its own unique soils and climatic<br />

conditions. Marlborough put New Zealand on<br />

the international wine stage with its Sauvignon<br />

Blanc and is the country’s largest wine region,<br />

but New Zealand has so much to offer and not<br />

just Sauvignon Blanc.<br />

We focus on four key regions but as ever have<br />

access to so much more.<br />

SPAIN<br />

Spain enjoys a fascinating and diverse<br />

landscape, with both Atlantic and<br />

Mediterranean coasts, dry plateaus, and<br />

the Pyrenees mountains. Spanish wines<br />

feature a real mix, between bold fruit<br />

and dusty minerality that makes them<br />

fall between old and new world styles.<br />

The country boasts the highest vineyard<br />

acreage in the world, but yields are<br />

relatively low given the wide vine spacing<br />

and limited water use. Spain is the origin<br />

country of several top varieties like<br />

Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Monastrell.<br />

WINES OF MONTERREI<br />

Staying in the Galician region of northern Spain we find the D.O. Monterrei. Located in<br />

the south-eastern corner of Galicia, bordering Portugal, with winemaking being introduced<br />

to the area by the ancient Romans. In 1994, Monterrei regained the DO status that<br />

had been stripped from it because local producers failed to modernize their wineries<br />

sufficiently but have since, not only improved, they have won international acclaim,<br />

including commendations from the wine critic Robert Parker in 2008.<br />

INTRODUCING TWO STUNNING WINES<br />

WORTHY OF ANY CELLAR...<br />

PEPE PORTER MENCIA<br />

An amazing Mencía that delivers all its character with every<br />

glass, a premium quality wine comes from the careful selection<br />

of the best bunches of the Mencia red grape. It is a delicious and<br />

versatile and account for a tiny part in the world’s total grape<br />

production. Appealingly bright with a gorgeous cherry red colour,<br />

intense, with fruit notes of raspberry, redcurrant, black plum and<br />

elegant floral aromas. A delicious red, balanced with defined fruit<br />

and the depth and length.<br />

PEPA PORTER GODELLO<br />

If you're looking for a rare Iberian grape variety then look no further than<br />

Godello. The grape was nearly extinct in the mid-20th century but with a<br />

focussed replanting programme it was resurrected from obscurity in the<br />

70’s. Characterized by its small, closely packed berries and its mineral<br />

acidity it truly was a remarkable save and Pepa Porter’s beautiful white is a<br />

gorgeous example. Godello Pepa Porter is the result of a careful work in<br />

the field and craft in the winery. 4 months on fine lees, the best Godello<br />

grapes. Think citrus and stone fruits intermingle with floral notes.<br />

UNITED STATES<br />

The United States might have a short history in winemaking when compared to many other wine nations, but you’d<br />

not realise this when you note that the U.S. is 4th worldwide for wine production. It is probably best known for<br />

Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and yes the sweet rose from Zinfandel. The States have a varied landscape from<br />

coast to coast but the majority is made in California, think fruit-forward wines that focus on French varieties, like<br />

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. Beyond California, Washington State, Oregon, and New<br />

York represent the largest up-and-comers of US wine.<br />

WHY SHOULD YOU BE SELLING MINI CANS OF WINE?<br />

The canned wine<br />

market is growing<br />

at around 13% per<br />

year.<br />

The global market for canned wines is growing at 13% per year. By 2028 it's forecast to be worth £428m! Whilst the US<br />

is the big player in this market, UK sales have quadrupled since 2018. The growth in festivals, followed by the pandemic's<br />

successive lockdowns and outdoor socialising broke down barriers to canned wines, particularly for young drinkers. The<br />

convenience, reliable quality and funky packaging has attracted new drinkers into the wine category – and you can see<br />

it in the increased range on supermarket shelves!<br />

Good For Your Business<br />

• Quick to chill and take up less room in the fridge. And they look great too!<br />

• Unbreakable. Perfect for outside spaces with restrictions on glass.<br />

• Reduce wastage. No more pouring away bottles left open too long for wines by the glass.<br />

• Keep your wine in perfect condition. No light taint or oxidation. The perfect serve size.<br />

Good For The Planet<br />

• Aluminium cans have a carbon footprint that's 2.5x less than the equivalent glass bottle.<br />

• They take less energy (and cost less) to produce, transport and recycle.<br />

• They can be recycled indefinitely. 82% of cans in the UK are recycled!<br />

• They are smaller and more efficient to pack, without wasted space or the need for extra<br />

packaging to avoid breakages. Lighter packaging burns less fossil fuel during transport.<br />

VEGAN WINES<br />

Demand for vegan<br />

wines has shot up,<br />

with a 51% rise in sales<br />

in the last two years.<br />

It is not commonly known that the use of fining agents in the<br />

wine-making process can determine if a wine is suitable for<br />

vegans or not.<br />

Fining is a process where a substance is added to the wine<br />

which helps to stabilize and clarify the liquid. The idea is<br />

that it is all then removed, along with particulates that would<br />

otherwise leave the wine hazy. Some of the fining agents used<br />

are also there to target bitter phenolics that are undesirable<br />

in their final wine.<br />

Our range of Vegan & Vegetarian wines continue to grow and<br />

the below list showcases what we currently offer. However,<br />

please do speak with us as this list is ever-changing as more<br />

as more wine makers make the move.<br />

Examples of commonly used<br />

fining agents:<br />

• Carbon<br />

• Gelatine<br />

• Isinglass (fish protein)<br />

• Casein (from milk)<br />

• Egg Albumin<br />

• Pea Protein<br />

Look out for the following<br />

wines are certified Vegan<br />

or Vegetarian! See following<br />

SUSTAINABILITY<br />

VINEYARD AND WINERY SUSTAINABILITY<br />

It is no secret that the world of winemaking can have<br />

a detrimental effect on the environment. There are<br />

countless opportunities to lower your wine’s carbon<br />

footprint, improve efficiency, and increase your profits<br />

through sustainable practices and make environmentally<br />

conscious decisions.<br />

Every piece of land is different from the next, so what<br />

works on some vineyards may not be appropriate in<br />

others. This is alright! Generally, one third of the wine<br />

industry’s carbon footprint is made during the growth<br />

and development of the wine itself. The other two<br />

thirds of its footprint develop during the packaging,<br />

distribution, and storage of the wine.<br />

A sustainable winery can be defined as a winery that<br />

acts through consideration of the economic, social, and<br />

environmental effects their product has on the world.<br />

SUSTAINABILITY<br />

Includes biodynamic farming, organic farming, and<br />

many other programmes seen around the world takes<br />

the below points and acts upon them.<br />

• Water Efficiency<br />

• Soil Health & Fertilization<br />

• Pest Management<br />

• Energy Efficiency<br />

• Waste and Wastewater Management<br />

• Transportation<br />

• Packaging and Material Sourcing<br />

ORGANIC, BIODYNAMIC & NATURAL<br />

Organic wine is produced from grapes that have<br />

been grown without the use of chemicals, artificial or<br />

synthetic, such as pesticides and herbicides. Instead,<br />

to prevent pests, bugs and weeds interfering with the<br />

grapevines, organic farmers will work in harmony with<br />

nature, not against it.<br />

Biodynamic: Like organic wine, biodynamic wine<br />

starts with grapes farmed without synthetic pesticides<br />

or fertilizers and is turned into wine using few if any<br />

additives. These practices are based on the philosophy<br />

of Rudolf Steiner. The idea is that humans don’t run<br />

the show; instead, they see themselves as guides,<br />

encouraging maximum harmony among all life forms<br />

on the farm. As a result, biodynamic wines tend to be<br />

unique—full of the individual character of the places<br />

that produced them.<br />

Natural wine is ancient, and on trend. Natural wine is<br />

more of a concept than a well-defined category with<br />

agreed-upon characteristics. In its purest form, it is<br />

wine made from unadulterated fermented grape juice<br />

and nothing else. You may see other terms bandied<br />

about; “low-intervention” wine, “naked” wine, or even<br />

“raw” wine. Natural wine is made from grapes not<br />

sprayed with pesticides or herbicides. The grapes tend<br />

to be hand harvested and the resulting must is then<br />

fermented with natural yeasts.<br />

Don't forget to look out for our handy guides<br />

throughout the portfolio....<br />

WINE IS SUSTAINABLE<br />

WINE IS CERTIFIED ORGANIC


CLASSIC GRAPE VARIETIES<br />

CABERNET SAUVIGNON:<br />

A “noble” grape famous with its spiritual home in<br />

Bordeaux but widely grown around the world and helps<br />

make wines of classic breed, intensity and complexity<br />

that often need to bottle-age for at least 5-10 years<br />

in order to reach peak flavour condition. Aromas and<br />

flavours include: blackcurrant, blackberry, mint.<br />

CARMENERE:<br />

Very limited plantings of this red wine grape are now<br />

found in the Medoc region of Bordeaux, France where it<br />

is used to produce deep red wines occasionally used for<br />

blending purposes in the same manner as Petit Verdot<br />

but was re-discovered in Chile where is was thoughts to<br />

be Merlot and produce stunning straight varietal wines.<br />

CHARDONNAY:<br />

Highly popular, versatile and widely planted<br />

international white variety equally capable of extreme<br />

mediocrity and regal splendour. Chardonnay‘s spiritual<br />

home is Burgundy and very important in Champagne.<br />

There, as in the cooler regions New Zealand and around<br />

the world, the wine made from it is often aged in small<br />

oak barrels to produce strong flavours and aromas, but<br />

of late we see a great rise in the un-oaked styles<br />

becoming more prevalent.<br />

CHENIN BLANC:<br />

A widely grown white-wine grape variety, known as<br />

Steen in South Africa, but its home has to be that of the<br />

Loire Valley. Often made in a variety of styles with or<br />

without some residual sugar. It is the favoured grape<br />

of the Anjou region of France.<br />

GAMAY:<br />

The Gamay grape is a widely grown in Beaujolais and is<br />

an early-ripening clone of Pinot Noir that can do well in<br />

the temperate climates. If picked promptly will produce<br />

a good soft fruity style of red wine.<br />

MALBEC:<br />

Semi-classic grape grown in Bordeaux and Southern<br />

France: Cahors, and in other areas under the name<br />

Cot and in the Alsace has the local name Auxerrois.<br />

Consumers have begun a love affair with this variety<br />

from Argentina – being one of the few varietals that<br />

grew its RSP last year and the year before. With<br />

characteristics of intense summer fruits.<br />

MERLOT:<br />

Classic grape widely grown but with its heart in<br />

Bordeaux. The red wine bears a resemblance to<br />

Cabernet Sauvignon wine, with which it is sometimes<br />

blended, but is usually not so intense, with softer<br />

tannins and notes of chocolate. Matures earlier than<br />

Cabernet Sauvignon. Other countries such as Chile,<br />

Argentina and New Zealand also seem to have the right<br />

climate for this variety and with great success.<br />

MONTEPULCIANO:<br />

Minor grape mostly found growing in central and<br />

southern Italy. Generally made into a blend with<br />

Sangiovese in order to produce a fruity, round,<br />

yet balanced red wine with attractive aroma.<br />

MOURVEDRE:<br />

Robust mediterranean grape variety widely grown in<br />

the southern Rhone region of France and mainly used<br />

to introduce colour and body to the red wine blends.<br />

Select limited plantings in California and Australia,<br />

where the grape is often called Mataro.<br />

MUSCAT:<br />

Traditionally found in Alsace and Southern Rhone<br />

(used for dessert wines) as well as in Australia now<br />

where some exceptionally crafted liqueur wines are<br />

made (Victoria, Rutherglen). Its classic characteristics<br />

are that of musk, grapey notes, orange and can be<br />

floral and aromatic in nature too.<br />

GEWURZTRAMINER:<br />

Widely grown, and one of the mainstay grapes<br />

for which the Alsace is famous, the popular<br />

Gewurztraminer produces white wines with a strong<br />

floral aroma and lychee nut like flavour. Occasionally it<br />

is made into a “botrytized” late harvest dessert style<br />

wine. Does well in the cooler coastal regions of Western<br />

U.S., Australia and New Zealand.<br />

GRENACHE:<br />

A grape variety found widely grown in Spain, (where<br />

it is known under the name Garnacha), the southern<br />

Rhone. It is the main grape used in the red wine blend<br />

known as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and, along with the<br />

Mourvedre, Cinsaut and some others, makes good wine<br />

blends under the appellation “Cotes du Rhone Villages”<br />

with characteristics of raspberries and white pepper.<br />

NEBBIOLO:<br />

Grape responsible for the long-lived, fine red wines<br />

of the Piedmont region of Italy. The role of honour<br />

includes “Barolo” and “Barbaresco”; all huge, tannic<br />

wines that at their best can take decades to mature<br />

when vinified in the traditional manner.<br />

PAIS:<br />

Chile’s commonplace grape probably imported by the<br />

Spanish conquistadores. Identical to the Criolla Chica<br />

of Argentina and Mission of California and Mexico.<br />

Dry grown in southern regions and increasingly<br />

transformed into interesting wine.<br />

165


CLASSIC GRAPE VARIETIES<br />

PETIT SYRAH:<br />

Widely grown grape variety in California. Produces a<br />

dark red, tannic wine in the warm regions of California,<br />

used mainly as backbone for Central Valley “jug” wines.<br />

In the cooler northern regions can be made into a<br />

robust, balanced red wine of some popularity.<br />

PINOT BLANC:<br />

Mutation of the Pinot Gris vine. Grape is generally used<br />

to make dry, crisp, rather intense white wines in the<br />

Alsace, parts of Burgundy and in Austria. Used in many<br />

of the better method traditional style sparkling wines of<br />

California because of its acid content and clean flavour.<br />

PINOT GRIS: (A.K.A PINOT GRIGIO)<br />

Clone of Pinot Noir, and also called Tokay Pinot Gris<br />

are one of the best grapes varieties found in the Alsace<br />

where the variety is used to make a golden-yellow<br />

wine with aromatic, fruity flavours that improves with<br />

a couple of years in the bottle, but look out for some<br />

wonderful wines from New Zealand and Australia too.<br />

PINOT NOIR:<br />

The premier grape of the Burgundy and Champagne.<br />

It produces a red wine that is lighter in colour than<br />

the Bordeaux reds (such as Cabernet and Merlot) and<br />

stunning sparkling wines. In the attempt to produce<br />

the best wines from cooler regions, it has proved to be<br />

a capriciously acting and difficult grape variety being<br />

thin skinned and needing great care. Cherished aromas<br />

and flavours often detected are cherry, mint, raspberry<br />

and truffles.<br />

RIESLING:<br />

Germany is the home of Riesling but it is widely planted<br />

in the Alsace as well as Australia and some stunning<br />

styles coming from New Zealand and is renowned<br />

for producing some of the finest white wines in the<br />

world when grown on steep slate vineyards like those<br />

found on the banks of the Mosel. Classic new world<br />

characteristics include apples, limes and other citrus<br />

and tropical fruits and old world styles with petrol and<br />

slate minerals.<br />

SANGIOVESE:<br />

Semi-classic grape grown in the Tuscany region of<br />

Italy. Used to produce the Chianti and other Tuscan red<br />

wines, producing medium-bodied reds with rich black<br />

cherry or plum like flavours and aromas.<br />

SAUVIGNON BLANC:<br />

Classic white-wine variety commonly planted in the<br />

Bordeaux and the Loire and to huge acclaim in<br />

New Zealand. It is also, together with Semillon, has an<br />

important role to play in the production of Sauternes,<br />

the fine botrytis influenced dessert wine of the region.<br />

Sauvignon shows a tendency towards a grassy,<br />

herbaceous flavours (Sancerre), gunflint and cordite<br />

(Pouilly-Fumé) , gooseberries, tropical fruits (NZ).<br />

SEMILLON:<br />

Semi-classic grape widely grown in the Bordeaux and<br />

with some stunning success in Australia. This grape<br />

variety has a distinct fig-like character. In France,<br />

Australia and increasingly in California it is often<br />

blended with Sauvignon Blanc to create better balance.<br />

Wineries in many countries also use the grape to create<br />

dry single-varietal white wines as well as dessert wines<br />

as Semillon is susceptible to infection of the “noble<br />

rot” fungi” it can be used to produce first-class sweet<br />

white wines such as those of the French Sauternes. It is<br />

slow to mature but when it opens up it is sublime.<br />

SYRAH / SHIRAZ:<br />

A grape variety associated with the Rhone Valley,<br />

famous for creating “Hermitage” red wine and Australia<br />

(known as Shiraz). In the state of California, depending<br />

on location, vintage or fermentation technique, it is<br />

used to either produce a spicy, complex wine or a<br />

simple richly fruity style wine.<br />

TEMPRANILLO:<br />

The grape of Rioja. Many of the characteristics of Rioja arise<br />

from the long oak ageing although when vinified without<br />

oak you could find notes of strawberries and soft spices.<br />

VIOGNIER:<br />

A grape varietal grown in the northern Rhone. Has full,<br />

spicy flavours somewhat reminiscent of the Muscat<br />

grape and violets. New plantings in California and<br />

Argentina have created much anticipation among<br />

the wine community. Viognier can vary from almost<br />

Riesling-like character to almost Chardonnay character,<br />

depending on production method.<br />

ZINFANDEL / PRIMITIVO:<br />

The USA has made this grape its own with extensive<br />

plantings throughout California. It is used to produce<br />

robust red wine as well as very popular “blush wines”<br />

called “White Zinfandel”. Zinfandel is noted for its<br />

peppery, fruit-laden, berry-like aromas. ITALY though<br />

has shed its past as an obscure blending grape in<br />

inexpensive wines, and it is now being made into<br />

distinctive, high-quality, varietal wines.<br />

BUILDING YOUR WINE CATEGORY<br />

We are in an age where consumers are increasingly wine-savvy. It pays to get it right, but what makes<br />

a good-looking wine list?<br />

(by the glass or the bottle). We need to recognise how<br />

many wines we offer by the glass and the price points<br />

that these need to sit at as well as the glass size that<br />

we should be trying to focus on to drive the notion of<br />

quality and value.<br />

If your wine list is confusing to read, with no hint to<br />

the style of the wines, people will go for the cheaper,<br />

safer options every time. Almost using your menu at<br />

a battleship game, heading down the price point and<br />

traversing across to see what sits there.<br />

Ultimately the aim of a menu is to support the bar and<br />

your staff to showcase your offering. To try to enthuse<br />

the customer with options and styles that will intrigue<br />

or at least reassure them of quality and encourage<br />

them to spend. I have seen so many food-led venues<br />

with the wine offering so poor that I have opted for a<br />

beer instead, or perhaps we are driving and the wine<br />

available by the glass is the cheapest, so the poorest<br />

quality to pair with the chefs special dish.<br />

The new era of consumer has seen a sizable shift away<br />

from volume, towards quality, trading up to better. In<br />

part, this is because the cost of wine has been increasing<br />

– year after year – along with the various lock-down<br />

periods, where customers were searching out better<br />

wines to sit and drink at home.<br />

There has also been the growing drive towards healthier<br />

living. This idea does not just sit in the wine category,<br />

but extends across the board to beers and spirits.<br />

I have never seen the costs of wine rise the way it has,<br />

Burgundy perhaps being the only exception. These<br />

increases have been bound up with the rises on dry<br />

goods, higher energy costs that our wineries are having<br />

to cope with, as well as haulage cost increases.<br />

Now, add to this the Governments proposed new duty<br />

scheme that landed at the start of August 2023. This<br />

effectively means that we are all going to be slapped<br />

with another increase on our wines in 2023. It does feel<br />

relentless does it not?<br />

It is lucky then that consumers are willing to pay more<br />

for their wines, but they are now more aware of grape<br />

variety and wine regions and will actively search for a<br />

wine that delivers quality.<br />

Our offering needs to be thinking about the range<br />

we want to offer and the styles that are in vogue<br />

alongside a serving that is appropriate for the needs of<br />

the business. What kind of venue are you, restaurant,<br />

wine and cocktail Bar… etc. and to consider how to<br />

encourage further sales. We also need to recognise<br />

how our customers are choosing to consume their wine<br />

The list should be designed to make choosing wine;<br />

an easier, quicker, less stressful and hopefully more<br />

enjoyable experience for our customers - my job is to<br />

make sure that what’s on the list in terms of content<br />

deliver.<br />

Let one of our Wine Development Managers consult<br />

with you to create something beautiful and functional,<br />

that helps drive and deliver a wine category that adds<br />

value to your customers and ultimately profit to your<br />

business.<br />
