Welcome<br />

We are excited to share our new portfolio with you for<br />

<strong>2024</strong>/25. In this edition we will introduce you to 21 new<br />

wines from 6 different countries. English wine year-onyear<br />

continues to deliver fabulous quality, interesting<br />

styles and puts our wines, both still and sparkling, on<br />

the world map. To bolster our fantastic English range,<br />

we have added a superb new Rosé Reserve from Lyme<br />

Bay, one of our local Devon suppliers.<br />

Providing wines from classical regions in France are<br />

a cornerstone to any portfolio. After some tricky<br />

vintages, we are thrilled to have sourced a great Pinot<br />

Noir from Burgundy at an affordable price point. We<br />

have extended our Bordeaux offering with a delicious<br />

oaked Sauvignon Blanc and a cracking right-bank<br />

red to offer a great food pairing accompaniment.<br />

Crémant has become the new ‘go to’ sparkling for the<br />

wedding market and sits on the by the glass menus in<br />

many establishments; so, we’ve brought in a fabulous<br />

sparkling wine from the world class sparkling region<br />

of the Loire Valley, the Langlois Chateau "LC" Crémant<br />

Blanc. But of course, we couldn’t leave France without<br />

a Sauternes to add to our sticky offering.<br />

Staying in Europe, we have continued to see exciting<br />

growth in the sales of Rioja, Spain. With more people<br />

enjoying the wide range of styles there is to offer,<br />

we have found a rich, indulgent white Rioja from our<br />

friends at Azabache and we are re-introducing a big,<br />

bold Gran Reserva, back into our fine wine arena,<br />

crafted by Almudena Alberca MW the first female<br />

Master of <strong>Wine</strong> in Spain.<br />

We then side-step to Italy, making sure we took on the<br />

Soave Classico, a high-quality white wine, crafted by<br />

three sisters who have become leaders in the Italian<br />

white wine market. This organic gem is a true favourite<br />

amongst our sales team and a must try! We have also<br />

introduced a new refreshing Gavi, at a price point<br />

which makes it a great new ‘by the glass’ option for<br />

those foodie customers.<br />

Being proud of the Southwest, and all the fantastic<br />

seafood we have at our fingertips, we are always<br />

looking to add in wines that complement our culinary<br />

scene. We are proud to introduce our first Greek wine,<br />

the Moderne Allegorie Assyrtiko. A crisp, fresh wine<br />

with a streak of salinity - the grape Assyrtiko is truly a<br />

sommeliers dream.<br />

Looking at our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, we<br />

are excited to showcase new wines from South Africa,<br />

with our brand-new Rivalry range from Riebeek Cellars<br />

who we have had the pleasure to work closely with<br />

for many years. Then to world-famous Graham Beck<br />

for two Method Cap Classique wines, showcasing an<br />

extraordinary Brut and Rosé sparkling that brings a<br />

great point of difference to those sparkling sections on<br />

any wine menu.<br />

Lastly, some Australian additions where we highlight<br />

two of Australia’s flagship styles and grapes. The De<br />

Bortoli Aus Chardonnay and Shiraz, made by 4th<br />

generation family producers who have become a<br />

standard-bearer for sustainability in Australia. All these<br />

fabulous wines can be found on pages 89-95.<br />

Knightor<br />

<strong>Wine</strong>ry<br />

The ethos at Knightor winery is<br />

uncompromising and innovative. Founded<br />

by Adrian Derx in 2011, head winemaker<br />

David Brocklehurst and his team are peeling<br />

back the oft-associated elitism of wine,<br />

whilst championing the complexity and<br />

enjoyment to be had from our cool climate<br />

grapes.<br />

Situated above St Austell Bay with vineyards near<br />

Portscatho and Looe, it is a bustling enclave of<br />

winemaking, an events space and emerging foodie<br />

destination. Knightor looks to capture the delicate<br />

aromas and flavours of the grapes producing premium<br />

quality still and sparkling wines in small batches.<br />

The cool climate and low yields allow them to produce<br />

lighter, fruitier, lower abv wines with good acidity that<br />

are refreshing as an aperitif and shockingly good with<br />

food. Minimal intervention means all the wines are<br />

vegan friendly, low in sulphites and any sweetness<br />

comes from fruit, not sugar. The results are often<br />

beautiful and always ephemeral, like the most unique<br />

experiences with the delicate lightness that is the<br />

hallmark of the best English wines. The breadth and<br />

range of tastes is surprisingly wide as they push the<br />

boundaries of wine into the aperitif and cocktail space<br />

with vermouths and spritzes.<br />

Champagne is undoubtedly one of the world’s most famous and prestigious wine<br />

regions, which doesn’t come as a huge surprise as they have thousands of years<br />

wine making experience under their belt; a fascinating process that shows the<br />

intricacy of wine making in all its glory.<br />

Champagne is made from three predominant grape varieties: Chardonnay, which gives elegance and finesse,<br />

Pinot Noir adds elegance and structure, and Pinot Meunier offers fruit and backbone. Popping a Champagne cork<br />

still remains the epitome of any celebration and ensures any party goes with a bang.<br />

Amongst many other remarkable feats, the region boasts an astonishing one billion bottles ageing in their cellars<br />

at any one time, more than any other region in the world.<br />

House Champagne<br />

Champagne<br />

Taittinger<br />

The vitality and reach of the Taittinger brand<br />

is based on the values of those who embody<br />

it today. These values are inherited from<br />

those who created the Champagne house.<br />

Over three generations, a number of people<br />

have left their mark on the history, spirit and<br />

style of Taittinger and, beyond that, on the<br />

image of Champagne itself.<br />

Vision, inspiration, strategy, development and<br />

influence have all contributed to permanently shaping<br />

the destiny of the family and the reputation of the<br />

Champagne house.<br />

The experience and passion of the winegrowers now<br />

gives way to the skills and talent of the Cellar Master<br />

in selecting, and then delicately combining, the<br />

potential of each vintage being used in the blends.<br />

Chardonnay is always the main component used, and<br />

creates that original, defining characteristic of the<br />

Taittinger Champagne House.<br />

It is this unique style, which has been present<br />

since the outset; the style that the tasting panel<br />

always scrupulously seek to maintain, but nothing<br />

is ever certain. “Our work is based on humility and<br />

tranquillity”, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger once said.<br />

Humility is required in the face of a living raw material<br />

which is the result of the work of both nature and<br />

man, with no guarantees about how it develops and<br />

what the result will be. Tranquillity is necessary for<br />

the patience and long hours required for the perfect<br />

maturation of the wine and before it sees the light<br />

of day.<br />

Pol Roger<br />

In 1849, an eighteen year old Monsieur Pol<br />

Roger made his first sale of wine. Focusing<br />

early on an extra-brut style which the<br />

English favoured, Great Britain became the<br />

premier market for his brand of Champagne,<br />

and from humble beginnings, Pol Roger is<br />

now famous throughout the world. <strong>2024</strong><br />

marks 175 years that Maison Pol Roger has<br />

been producing exceptional Champagne.<br />

Currently in the hands of the fifth and sixth<br />

generation, family and independence are at<br />

the heart of Champagne Pol Roger.<br />

The Pol Roger Brut Réserve Non-Vintage is the<br />

definitive house style, and comes from the three<br />

Champagne varietals, blended in equal proportion:<br />

Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The wine<br />

is composed from 30 still base wines and drawn from<br />

at least three vintages. After tasting, blending and<br />

bottling, the secondary fermentation and maturation<br />

takes place in the cool atmosphere of their famously<br />

deep cellars, located 33 metres below street level, for<br />

at least four years on the lees. Each bottle is given a<br />

traditional remuage (hand riddling) before disgorging<br />

and dosage.<br />

The winemaker’s skill each year is to produce the<br />

same freshness, structure and robust flavour from a<br />

variety of vintages. Pol Roger began to produce its<br />

Brut Réserve Non-Vintage expression in the 1950s<br />

and since then has ensured that no matter what year,<br />

each bottle is representative of the Pol Roger style:<br />

inimitable quality, purity of fruit and famously fine<br />

bubbles.<br />

Pol Roger Brut Reserve,<br />

Champagne<br />

On the nose, this Champagne<br />

is dominated by white<br />

flowers, green apple, brioche<br />

and a trace of minerality. On<br />

the palate there are notes<br />

of stone fruits, a certain<br />

nuttiness and a hint of honey<br />

supporting the freshness of<br />

the acidity. (vg) (s)<br />

peach and hazelnut. (vg) (s)<br />

Laurent-Perrier<br />

Founded in 1812, the House of Laurent-<br />

Perrier has been defined by its pioneering<br />

role in innovating Champagne throughout<br />

its history. Internationally recognised as<br />

one of the foremost names in Champagne,<br />

its success can be attributed to a deliberate<br />

policy of challenging conventional<br />

techniques, whilst honouring traditional<br />

values: a respect for nature and the terroir<br />

above all, a passion for quality, and strong,<br />

lasting relationships.<br />

Laurent-Perrier’s success must also be attributed to<br />

the energy of the de Nonancourt family. This familyrun<br />

house was purchased in 1939 by Marie-Louise de<br />

Nonancourt, who was a member of the prominent<br />

Lanson family. In 1948, Marie-Louise’s son, Bernard<br />

de Nonancourt, picked up the reins aged 28 and<br />

built it into a global brand. The company remained<br />

in his hands for 60 years and is now run by his two<br />

daughters, Stéphanie Meneux de Nonancourt and<br />

Alexandra Pereyre de Nonancourt.<br />

The late Bernard de Nonancourt assumed control<br />

in a demanding business environment at the end<br />

of the Second World War. Bernard preserved the<br />

independence of his champagne house and its related<br />

values, taking the house from one of hundreds to its<br />

current position as one of the region’s leading houses.<br />

These same principles guide the current management<br />

team led by his two daughters.<br />

Additionally, as growers and producers of fine<br />

champagne wines, Laurent-Perrier is committed<br />

to ceasing all practices or actions which may<br />

irremediably damage the environment. This pledge is<br />

translated and put into action in all activities, showing<br />

a continual respect for the environment and natural<br />

resources. The house’s long-term policy in grape<br />

growing and wine elaboration is based on sustainable<br />

methods.<br />

hectares, the estate is set on gravelly hilltops, rich in rolled<br />

pebbles. The plots are generally south-facing: an ideal<br />

situation for producing great wines, typical of the Pessac-<br />

Léognan appellation.<br />

The Cruzeau Blanc is the finest expression of its terroir<br />

with a rich, complex nose, with lovely notes of white fruit<br />

and citrus, freshness and roundness on the palate. Lemonmeringue<br />

and biscuit aromas lead to a very smooth and<br />

flavourful palate that has plenty of drinkable appeal.<br />

Tout un Fromage Merlot | Languedoc<br />

Tout Un Fromage means “A whole cheese” or “to<br />

exaggerate”. This fruit-forward, easy-drinking Merlot<br />

Languedoc vineyards, vinified to showcase their fruit<br />

and varietal characteristics. The wine is vibrant with<br />

and supple on the palate, with ripe, rounded fruit and<br />

the French way to describe “to be on top form”. It is<br />

a blend of Chardonnay from two different vineyard<br />

plots, one located in Gascony for its purity of flavour,<br />

and the other in the Pays D’Oc for its character<br />

and texture. The result is a wine that is pure and<br />

bright, with an attractive orange blossom nose and a<br />

harmonious, rich and peachy palate. (vg) (s) (sc)<br />

Aromatic<br />

Whites<br />

The world of wine is many and varied, with aromas<br />

and flavours ranging from gentle citrus, herbal<br />

characters through to incredibly perfumed, floral,<br />

tropical and spicy notes.<br />

In essence, grape varieties aren’t all born equal,<br />

as certain varieties produce wines that display a<br />

much greater intensity of aromas than others – we<br />

call these ‘aromatic varieties’. Sauvignon Blanc has<br />

become the most popular aromatic grape variety<br />

in the UK, but if you’re looking for something with a<br />

little more character, there are many other regions,<br />

varieties, and wines to consider…<br />

France<br />

Selon Létang Viognier | Languedoc<br />

Sourced from the rugged hillsides in the Languedoc region<br />

of south-eastern France, this is made from a small parcel<br />

(less than a hectare) of Viognier grown in a vineyard<br />

abundant with apricot trees. The Mediterranean climate<br />

creates a fresh and bright white with honeysuckle and<br />

mandarin notes. A dry wine with a lovely peachy nose and<br />

crisp acidity, perfect to enjoy with Thai food and dishes in<br />

creamy sauces.<br />

Top Tip: Viognier is pronounced [vee-ON-yay]. This can often<br />

be a struggle for many customers who read it with a hard ‘g’.<br />


South Africa<br />

Italy<br />

Percheron Chenin Blanc Viognier | Western Cape<br />

Moving to South Africa, this is a delicious 80% Chenin Blanc<br />

/ 20% Viognier blend from the Coastal region, mainly from<br />

Swartland vineyards of the Western Cape. Part of the Chenin<br />

Blanc is wild yeast fermented and kept longer on lees to give<br />

a rounded palate, rich texture and good fruit concentration.<br />

Vibrant with white peach and hints of jasmine, this appealing<br />

white has stone fruit flavours, bright acidity and a touch of<br />

minerality on the finish – a good match for grilled prawns<br />

with plenty of garlic and chilli, or a whole lemon sole fried in<br />

butter!<br />

La Lancelotta Gavi | Piemonte<br />

The Gavi appellation is in the Piemonte region of northwestern<br />

Italy. One of the leading producers in the area is<br />

Araldica, who source their Cortese grapes from south-west<br />

facing vineyards in the Monferrato hills. This wine has bags<br />

of fresh citrus and stone fruit aromas, apple and apricot<br />

flavours, and crisp lemony acidity on the finish. Some lees<br />

ageing adds to the bright, textural palate and makes it a<br />

good match for summer salads, chicken or fish dishes.<br />

Matahiwi<br />

Matahiwi Estate is located in the heart of the<br />

Wairarapa, we pride ourselves on being an<br />

award-winning family-owned winery.<br />

Romeo Bragato, an Italian viticulturist & oenologist,<br />

was contracted by New Zealand’s Department of<br />

Agriculture in 1895 to advise on planting & pruning<br />

vines in New Zealand, from which he reported the<br />

ideal growing conditions that the Wairarapa & other<br />

regions in New Zealand offered potential grape<br />

growers. Owner of Matahiwi Estate Alastair Scott<br />

agreed and began planting in 1998.<br />

French wife of early settler, William Beetham, was so<br />

inspired by our region that she left her Burgundian<br />

homeland to live in New Zealand in the 1880's and<br />

produced the region’s first Pinot Noir vintage in 1897.<br />

Prohibition came into force in the late 1900's which<br />

saw an end to winemaking in the region. Hence<br />

the Phoenix in our logo, it symbolises the rebirth<br />

of winemaking in the northern Wairarapa after the<br />

period of prohibition.<br />

Matahiwi Estate wines are produced according to<br />

the criteria of Sustainable <strong>Wine</strong>growing New Zealand<br />

(SWNZ). Sustainable <strong>Wine</strong>growing New Zealand was<br />

developed to provide “best practice model, guarantee<br />

better quality from the vineyard to the bottle and<br />

address consumer concerns around the environment.<br />

In addition to the SWNZ program, we embrace<br />

practices which encourage a healthy vineyard. Inter-<br />

row plantings promote healthy soils and bio-diversity<br />

in the vineyard. The flowering buckwheat and phacelia<br />

attract natural predators for some vineyard pests,<br />

while clovers, oats, chicory and vetch provide nitrogen<br />

and other nutrients to vines when they are mown or<br />

cultivated into the ground.<br />

Women<br />

in <strong>Wine</strong>:<br />

Kate Acland<br />

In hindsight I can’t believe they let me buy it. I was 26<br />

years old, and while my parents helped with the bank<br />

paperwork, the bank essentially lent me several million<br />

dollars. That just wouldn’t happen these days.<br />

We’ve grown from that point to producing around<br />

40,000 dozen and exporting to 26 different<br />

international markets.<br />

I love the annual process, seeing our wines start in<br />

the vineyard and following that through to the cellar<br />

- then every year we get the chance to do it all over<br />

again. I love seeing our vineyard blocks grow and<br />

develop through the years and the depth and flavour<br />

from every block grow - each one has a unique<br />

character, with its own quirks, that develop and<br />

mature through the years and occasionally throw us<br />

some curve balls to deal with!<br />

The other great thing about our industry is the people<br />

and opportunities to meet like-minded and passionate<br />

people all over the world. It takes a special kind of<br />

person to still be smiling after 3 weeks of grueling<br />

harvest - those are my kind of people. Ultimately, we<br />

make the wines we like to drink.”<br />

Kate Acland is the Founder and Owner of<br />

Sugar Loaf <strong>Wine</strong>s and Orchard Lane <strong>Wine</strong>s<br />

in New Zealand. Kate studied Viticulture and<br />

Oenology at Lincoln University, followed by a<br />

Masters in Farm Management Consultancy.<br />

In 2007 she purchased her Rapaura based winery.<br />

There were some tough times in the early days due<br />

to an oversupply of wine and the global financial<br />

crisis and the winery largely survived on several<br />

winemaking contracts for other estates.<br />

In 2010 she married David, a farmer from Mt Somers<br />

in Canterbury, and went on to have three children.<br />

Sales at the winery have steadily grown and they<br />

now export to Australia, the UK, Ireland and Canada<br />

amongst others. We asked Kate to share with us what<br />

drew her to winemaking and what keeps her going<br />

vintage to vintage.<br />

“I was drawn to winemaking at university, transferring<br />

my science degree to viticulture and oenology in my<br />

second year. After travelling and working for a few<br />

years I started the Sugar Loaf brand at the age of 26,<br />

then quickly built a small winery, purchased vineyards<br />

and went all in.<br />

Esk Valley<br />

For nearly four decades, Esk Valley have<br />

crafted award winning boutique wines using<br />

traditional hands-on techniques. This simple<br />

and artisanal approach was born of the<br />

original winery site in Bayview, with its old<br />

concrete vats, unique layout and absence of<br />

modern technology.<br />

Esk Valley sources the grapes from two main wine<br />

regions in New Zealand. On the east coast of North<br />

Island and overlooking the South Pacific Ocean is<br />

Hawkes Bay, where the vineyards naturally enjoy a<br />

maritime climate. Here they produce an exquisite<br />

Albarino and their famous Merlot/Malbec/Cabernet<br />

blends. In Hawkes Bay the winter is not too cold, the<br />

summer not too hot and the settled milder autumn<br />

allows a slow final development of flavour and aroma<br />

in the grapes, running up to vintage. The International<br />

<strong>Wine</strong> Challenge Great Value White <strong>Wine</strong> Champion<br />

winning Sauvignon Blanc comes from their cooler<br />

Marlborough vineyards on the South Island, combining<br />

fruit from both the Awatere and Wairau Valleys to<br />

produce a benchmark style for that region.<br />

In 2018 the limitations of the original 85-year-old<br />

winery were reached and Esk Valley relocated its<br />

winemaking operation to an all-new site situated in<br />

the Gimblett Gravels in Hawkes Bay, an area that is<br />

rapidly becoming one of the most famed New World<br />

terroirs. Of utmost importance was that the artisanal<br />

winemaking approach would remain unchanged and<br />

steps, including the installation of concrete fermenters<br />

were taken to ensure that the hallmark style of the<br />

wines remained the same. The winemaker even<br />

captured indigenous yeasts from the original winery<br />

site, driving it inland to the new site and adding it to<br />

waiting ferments thus intertwining the DNA of old and<br />

new.<br />

Château de<br />

la Deidière<br />

Château de la Deidière is owned by the<br />

Fabre-Grimaldi family and located in the<br />

south-east of France, in the heartland of the<br />

Côtes de Provence region.<br />

An historical estate, during the reign of Louis XIV,<br />

the château belonged to the Count of La Deidière of<br />

Pierrefeu. The King gave him the royal privilege to<br />

hunt and breed pigeons. He then built a Provençal<br />

pigeon loft bearing the family’s coat of arms.<br />

The history of the Fabre-Grimaldi family and Château<br />

de la Deidière came together in 1961 when Henri Fabre<br />

acquired the property. The estate is a live Provençal<br />

picture that offers great sceneries of olive trees, wild<br />

woods and hedges along the river.<br />

The 140-acre estate of Chateau de La Deidiere is<br />

situated next to the towns of Pierrefeu-du-Var, Puget-<br />

Ville, and Cuers. Puget-Ville is known for its red wines,<br />

and Pierrefeu-du-Var for its rosé wines.<br />

The main grape varietals grown on our vineyard are<br />

Cinsault, Syrah, Rolle, and Grenache.<br />

The Fabre-Grimaldi family are committed to offering<br />

high-quality wines and focus on the respect of their<br />

environment.<br />

As a result of this commitment, Chateau La Deidiere<br />

uses ultra-sustainable land farming processes,<br />

and the wines are certified HVE (Haute Valeur<br />

Terrazzo Zinfandel Rosé | California<br />

A Strawberry Tart needs a best friend, and what could be<br />

better than a wine bursting with melon, raspberry and apple<br />

flavours such as our Terrazzo White Zinfandel, from the USA.<br />

The tart is made with shortcrust pastry that is dense and<br />

crumbly, containing a sweet strawberry filling most often<br />

served warm, making the White Zinfandel grape variety<br />

the perfect sipping rosé for this dish. White Zinfandel has a<br />

sweeter taste and is much milder than a drier Pinot Grigio<br />

Rosato or a wonderful Provence for example.<br />

Not just an eye-catching label! This vibrant pink wine has a<br />

sugar content 50% lower than most White Zinfandels. Young<br />

and fresh, chill this wine down and enjoy with our suggested<br />

pairing or chilled with friends in the summer sun.<br />

its tannins to a velvety touch in the mouth, while bringing<br />

tantalising hints of oak to an already complex wine.<br />

The Butcher of Buenos Aires is a nod to Marcos the<br />

Butcher who introduced us to this family winery nestled<br />

high in the Uco Valley in Mendoza. The vines grow at an<br />

altitude of between 850m and 1400m, which helps lock<br />

in an abundance of fresh red fruit flavours while keeping<br />

tannin levels low. Their winemaker has worked at Châteaux<br />

Margaux and Mouton-Rothschild, bringing old world<br />

knowledge to new world vines. This is a great mediumbodied<br />

Familia<br />

Falasco<br />

Familia Falasco, is one of Argentina’s leading<br />

family-owned wineries. Today the fourth<br />

generation continues the story that began in<br />

1939 with Haroldo Santos Falasco, known as<br />

‘Don Lolo’.<br />

He would wheel his bicycle through the streets of<br />

his small hometown of Chacabuco, 200km west<br />

of Buenos Aires, selling his wines from the basket<br />

on the front of his bike. Eighty years later, Franco<br />

Falasco, along with his siblings, are responsible for his<br />

grandfather’s legacy; creating wines of excellence and<br />

quality for the world to enjoy.<br />

The vineyards are planted at premium high-altitude<br />

sites in Mendoza, with most grapes sourced from<br />

the Uco Valley, the greatest wine producing region<br />

in Mendoza. Here the vineyards can be planted up to<br />

1500 meters above sea level. The micro-climate here<br />

has chilly winters and hot, dry summers with cool<br />

nights. Vines are nourished by meltwater from snow<br />

on the Andes Mountains and grapes produce wines<br />

of great character and freshness. Malbec finds its<br />

greatest and most authentic expression here.<br />

De Bortoli <strong>Wine</strong>s<br />

De Bortoli <strong>Wine</strong>s is an Australian institution.<br />

Established in 1928, by Vittorio and<br />

Giuseppina De Bortoli, the business has<br />

evolved into a global force over the last 95<br />

years. Today, the business is run by the<br />

fourth generation, with some of the fifth<br />

generation starting to join them.<br />

De Bortoli has become a standard-bearer for<br />

sustainability in Australia with the ultimate ambition to<br />

become a Zero Waste <strong>Wine</strong>ry.<br />

In 2005, De Bortoli conducted its first environmental<br />

assessment and tackled the issue of wastewater.<br />

This set in motion analysis of the entire operation,<br />

examining everything from viticulture to bottling<br />

through a sustainability lens.<br />

Their research-driven approach has led to many<br />

breakthroughs. They solved the wastewater problem<br />

by replacing the sodium used to clean tanks<br />

with potassium. The water could then be used to<br />

grow crops, the sale of which offsets the costs of<br />

wastewater management. When excess potassium<br />

became an issue, they developed the ‘De Bortoli<br />

Method’ that recycles the waste product to produce a<br />

cleaning solution.<br />

Alongside water and waste management, they also<br />

focused on energy efficiency, installing the largest<br />

solar panel initiative of any Australian winery in 2013.<br />

As of 2020, 6.2% of their Riverina vineyards are<br />

certified organic and they aim to increase this to 10%<br />

by 2025.<br />

In 2023, De Bortoli became the first Platinum Partner<br />

of New South Wales’ Sustainability Advantage<br />

program in recognition of its achievements. The work<br />

continues, reflecting the family motto, ‘Semper ad<br />

Majora’ - ‘always striving for better’.<br />

Viña Agustinos<br />

Agustinos <strong>Wine</strong>ry – Crafted from Nature<br />

Located in the Bíobío Valley, just 30km from the<br />

Pacific Ocean and with an abundance of volcanoes<br />

and rivers that flow through its vineyards, Viña<br />

Agustinos was conceived to produce wines of the<br />

highest quality in a context of total sustainability.<br />

To achieve that, the winery has incorporated<br />

environmentally friendly and minimally invasive<br />

practices into its processes, as well as constant care<br />

for its employees and their families. In this unique<br />

setting, the winery owns a 300-hectare estate where<br />

the natural soil, wind, rain, and temperature conditions<br />

combine to create the best terroir for the production<br />

of fine wines of singular characteristics.<br />

A fine example is the Agustinos Estate Malbec<br />

benefiting from the temperate Mediterranean<br />

climate of the Bíobío Valley, with warm days and cool<br />

nights. The soil is volcanic, sandy and rocky, with<br />

an abundance of organic river deposits that make<br />

it rich and fertile. This is the ideal location for such<br />

noble varieties that require a prolonged ripening<br />

period, which preserves the freshness and intensity of<br />

flavours and aromas.<br />

Pinot<br />

Noir<br />

Many people in the wine industry have a love affair<br />

with Pinot Noir and it is often described as the<br />

‘Holy Grail’ of grape varieties, but for others it is<br />

often misunderstood, “It’s a bit thin”, is one of the<br />

comments that we hear at tastings. This is, in part,<br />

due to the fact that the UK market has been flooded<br />

with powerful, blockbusting reds from the New<br />

World, so anything lighter can often get lost in a<br />

tasting line-up. If you like a red that is more delicate,<br />

elegant, and something you can have a couple of<br />

glasses over lunch without feeling the need to go for<br />

a snooze afterwards, then perhaps it’s time to give<br />

Pinot Noir a try.<br />

So why are Pinot Noir’s lighter than most other reds?<br />

Well, Pinot Noir is a particularly thin-skinned grape<br />

variety, and as colour and tannin are extracted from<br />

the grape skins in the winemaking process, thin<br />

skinned varieties like Pinot Noir produce wines that<br />

are lighter in colour, body, and tannin. The thin skins<br />

also make the grapes susceptible to extremes of<br />

temperature and weather, which means that Pinot<br />

Noir vineyards are usually planted in cooler regions<br />

and climates, once again aiding the production of<br />

a lighter style of wine. Now don’t take this lack of<br />

deep colour or lighter body to mean that the wine<br />

is somehow inferior, don’t even take it to mean that<br />

it has a less intense flavour. Just that it’s not always<br />

as obvious as its thicker-skinned counterparts and<br />

sometimes you just need a little bit of time with it to<br />

fully appreciate its delicate flavour profile.<br />

Top Tip: In the hot summer months, try putting your<br />

Pinot Noir in the fridge.<br />

Here we explore three very different examples of<br />

Pinot Noir, from vineyards located in the heights of<br />

the Andes to the grape’s heartland in Burgundy.<br />

France<br />

Vallet Frères Bourgogne Pinot Noir | Burgundy<br />

Vallet Frères was founded in 1864 and is now in the hands<br />

of the fourth generation of the family. Grapes are handharvested<br />

and sourced from several parcels from premium<br />

vineyard sites in the Meursault and Gevrey-Chambertin<br />

regions of Burgundy. Since yeasts are an expression of<br />

the individual vintage and vineyard, only the natural grape<br />

yeasts are used for the fermentation. The wine is then aged<br />

in oak barrels for 16-18 months, of which 20-30% is well<br />

toasted new oak. A pretty, translucent ruby colour with<br />

earthy, strawberry fruit and a light pepperiness on the nose.<br />

Mouthwatering acidity balances the moderate gentle ripe<br />

tannins and elegant, pure, somewhat savoury red fruit. This<br />

is a wine to truly savour and get to know over a few glasses.<br />

108<br />


Chile<br />

France<br />

El Viejo del Valle Pinot Noir | Central Valley<br />

Chile is usually thought of as being a hot country, but the<br />

higher you go into the Andean foothills, or the further<br />

south you travel into Patagonia, you can find plentiful cool<br />

climate vineyards perfect for cultivating Pinot Noir. ‘El Viejo<br />

del Valle’ or ‘The Old Man of the Valley’ is sourced from a<br />

small Hacienda in the Andes where glacial streams and pure<br />

mountain air allow the grapes to express their natural fruit<br />

characters. The result – a deliciously long, bright, textural<br />

Pinot. Summer fruits of redcurrant, raspberry and wild<br />

strawberries on the nose follow through to a juicy palate. A<br />

touch of oak adds spice and smoky complexity.<br />

Vieille Monnaie Pinot Noir | Languedoc<br />

A unique take on Pinot Noir from two growers' plantings in<br />

the sun-drenched vineyards of the Southern Languedoc. A<br />

small portion of the wine (around 15%) spends some time<br />

in oak to give added character and weight. This southern<br />

French example is fuller than Pinot Noir from Burgundy due<br />

to the additional heat and sunshine. It has a warm, rich nose<br />

with aromas of dark wild cherry and just a hint of toasty<br />

oak. The palate is nicely balanced with an exciting, savoury<br />

bitterness provided by ripe, tasty tannins.<br />

Bordeaux. André Lurton has made his own<br />

mark on the region - he was a true visionary<br />

who inherited Chateau Bonnet in 1953<br />

and subsequently was instrumental in the<br />

establishment of Pessac-Leognan. Over<br />

the years he grew the business from 30 to<br />

600 hectares, and it is now comprised of 5<br />

further estates.<br />

Now with Jacques, André’s son, as president and<br />

Jacques’s niece Mathilde de Caix Lurton at the helm,<br />

the business continues to innovate, with an increasing<br />

focus on social and environmental sustainability.<br />

Château de Barbe Blanche | Bordeaux<br />

Château de Barbe Blanche is situated in Lussac Saint-<br />

Émilion, Bordeaux. This estate, undergoing organic<br />

conversion benefits from the same exceptional claylimestone<br />

terroir as the great châteaus that surround it. The<br />

estate is currently in the process of converting to organic<br />

farming. Made like a Cru Classé with a high proportion of<br />

Cabernet Franc, it shows incredible silkiness and richness<br />

after only 3 or 4 years. Made using fruit from 30-year-old<br />

vines atop one of the highest plateaus in St Emilion, the<br />

Merlot brings red fruit aromas and silkiness whereas the<br />

Cabernet Franc gives freshness and tannins. Barrel ageing<br />

softens the wine and its tannins to a velvety touch in the<br />

mouth, while bringing tantalising hints of oak to an already<br />

complex wine.<br />

Castello<br />

di Albola<br />

Castello di Albola is a medieval village<br />

located in Tuscany in the heart of Chianti: an<br />

area supremely well-suited to wine growing<br />

and appreciated all over the world for its<br />

prestigious wines.<br />

Castello di Albola's vineyards are planted among the<br />

highest hills of Chianti Classico, up to 700m, where<br />

the weather is cooler. This helps produce wines that<br />

are fresher, with lighter tannins.<br />

The Estate covers 900 hectares and the vineyards are<br />

surrounded by forests creating a unique microclimate.<br />

In September it can be 25-280˚C during the day but<br />

just 15-180˚C at night. This temperature variation is<br />

important for maintaining the acidity in the wine. In<br />

addition, the 109 hectares of vines are grown on steep<br />

slopes with North, South, East and West exposure.<br />

This allows different characteristics to develop in<br />

different vineyards.<br />

The Estate is steeped in history. Castello d’Albola is<br />

the name of the castle in the village of Albola and<br />

the estate can trace its ownership back to the 12th<br />

century. It has passed through the hands of some<br />

of Tuscany’s most important and influential noble<br />

families.<br />

The estate’s goal is to maintain a style and level of<br />

quality so that the wines reflect the authenticity of<br />

their historic cellars, where one can find fine wines<br />

that have been ageing for decades and yet still have a<br />

taste of almost unreal freshness.<br />

The high altitude, the diversity and suitability of the<br />

soils for wine growing and the perfect exposure form<br />

a unified whole, a ‘radiant jewel’ that shines with its<br />

own light against the glittering treasure trove that is<br />

Chianti Classico, with its sloping hillside vineyards,<br />

historic buildings and artistic treasures.<br />

Castello di Albola captures the essence of the<br />

Sangiovese variety with its often subtle and austere<br />

tones, capable of delighting all those who care to<br />

unlock its fascinating secrets.<br />

Grapes are hand-picked and carefully vinified<br />

according to the traditional fermentation method.<br />

After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in<br />

Slavonian oak barrels for 10-12 months and then aged<br />

in bottle.<br />

Women<br />

in <strong>Wine</strong><br />

Almudena Alberca<br />

With more than 17 years winemaking<br />

experience, Almudena Alberca MW<br />

combined her Master of <strong>Wine</strong> studies with<br />

her professional career in various wineries.<br />

She forms part of the current generation<br />

of the most nationally and internationally<br />

recognised young Spanish winemakers.<br />

In 2003 Almudena Alberca MW began her career as<br />

winemaking assistant in the winery Viñas del Cenit,<br />

in the DO Tierra del Vino de Zamora. From here she<br />

travelled to New Zealand to complete her training,<br />

eventually bringing all her wealth of knowledge and<br />

skills back to her homeland.<br />

In 2005 Almudena joined a project at its very outset,<br />

where she could gain first-hand experience of all the<br />

stages of development of a winery and its wines,<br />

taking charge of oenology at the winery in 2008.<br />

This was when she achieved the WSET (<strong>Wine</strong> &<br />

Spirit Education Trust) Advanced Certificate, the first<br />

step on the path of studies that would lead to her<br />

becoming a Master of <strong>Wine</strong> and the first woman in<br />

Spain to do so.<br />

became a dedicated winemaker. Almudena’s work in<br />

improving the quality of the wines obtained very good<br />

reviews from the national and international wine press.<br />

Almudena showed her versatility and multiple talents<br />

by working on these two, very different projects,<br />

as the two areas represented climatic extremes,<br />

managing to create wines of high-quality year after<br />

year.<br />

It was in 2015, that Almudena Alberca MW arrived<br />

at Bodegas Viña Mayor as Technical Director. She<br />

has been responsible for repositioning the winery,<br />

creation, design and relaunch of new products.<br />

Eight new wines bearing her signature were launched<br />

in the record time of 18 months, in addition to the<br />

production of wines in new D.O.s such as Valdéorras<br />

and Rías Baixas, where the group had not previously<br />

worked.<br />

Almudena is now the <strong>Wine</strong>making Director for<br />

Entrecanales Domecq e Hijos overseeing their diverse<br />

portfolio of wineries. She is involved in their many<br />

sustainability projects, including regenerative farming<br />

and biodiversity plans as well as the reduction of<br />

emissions and waste across the business.<br />

In 2010 she added wineries Dominio de Atauta<br />

and Atalayas de Golbán to her portfolio, where she<br />

Women<br />

in <strong>Wine</strong><br />

Laura I jalba<br />

Laura Ijalba co-owner of Santalba <strong>Wine</strong>ry,<br />

describes her winemaking career as her<br />

lifestyle, culture and roots.<br />

Laura began her journey with the winery 13 years ago,<br />

as a young girl, with a visit to check the vineyards. She<br />

navigated the narrow roads in her small, red Suzuki<br />

Vitara, much to the surprise and slight intimidation of<br />

the vine growers. From that day she has never looked<br />

back.<br />

Her advice to women who would like to work in wine,<br />

“It’s different from anything else. <strong>Wine</strong> encourages<br />

us to socialise, it educates the senses and invites<br />

conversation. To make wine is easy but to make the<br />

best quality wines you must have passion as well as<br />

knowledge.”<br />

Laura studied business at Bilbao university, which has<br />

enabled her to undertake the finances, marketing,<br />

purchase management and wine tourism components<br />

of the winery. Her work doesn’t end there, she also<br />

oversees grape production, deals with the vine<br />

growers, and controls the vineyards during harvest.<br />

In addition, Laura has the enviable job of tasting all<br />

the wines produced to ensure they are true to the<br />

Santalba style.<br />

Laura has fond memories of attending wine fairs with<br />

her father Santigo and brother Roberto and mixing<br />

with the locals, telling stories and sharing good food<br />

and wine. Whilst she recognises that working so<br />

closely with family can be difficult, especially when<br />

you see more of them than your partner, she wouldn’t<br />

change it. She adores working on their family legacy,<br />

paving the way for future family members.<br />

Santalba is a family run winery established in 1964.<br />

It is known around the globe in five continents. It<br />

prides itself on producing high quality wines using the<br />

knowledge and passion that has been handed down<br />

through the generations.<br />

The Federalist<br />

Grown, aged and crafted in some of<br />

America’s most renowned regions with the<br />

same rebellious spirit that created a nation.<br />

These are distinctly American craft wines<br />

wrought with as much character and bold<br />

spirit as the famous American statesmen<br />

that don every bottle.<br />

Unshackled by the past, yet deep rooted in the ideal<br />

of “whatever I’m drinking should taste good dammit”<br />

and born from the virtues of every forward-thinking,<br />

hard-working, red-blooded American, this is The<br />

Federalist. To honour their Founding Fathers and their<br />

love of wine, they created a collection of varietals<br />

as big and bold as the men themselves. Thus, The<br />

Federalist was born. They began with their flagship<br />

Visionary Zinfandel featuring the man who pioneered<br />

The Federalist Party, Alexander Hamilton.<br />

They have since created a Chardonnay featuring the<br />

Statue of Liberty, a Cabernet Sauvignon featuring Ben<br />

Franklin, a Zinfandel featuring George Washington<br />

and a Honest Red Blend featuring Abraham Lincoln.<br />

Their newest edition to the Federalist family is the<br />

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Zinfandel from Mendocino<br />

County. Aged in real bourbon barrels for six months,<br />

this wine portrays Alexander Hamilton, who met his<br />

demise at the end of a smoking barrel in the most<br />

famous duel in American history. The Federalist <strong>Wine</strong>s<br />

invite you to explore their collection of exceptionally<br />

bold wines and discover what it means to taste ‘A<br />

<strong>Wine</strong> With Principle’<br />

The Federalist Zinfandel,<br />

Women<br />

in <strong>Wine</strong>:<br />

Julie Mortlock<br />

Even when she first joined De Bortoli, Julie<br />

never expected to become a winemaker. But her<br />

background and experience helped put her on the<br />

path.<br />

Julie grew up on a dairy farm and had ambitions to be<br />

a chef. Instead her passion for science kicked in and<br />

for the next ten years she became a self-confessed<br />

“dairy lab rat”, a qualified tester of cream and milk.<br />

She also developed an interest in cheese. She had<br />

begun looking for a change of pace and scene when<br />

a friend mentioned that wineries also employed<br />

laboratory assistants. The idea that wine and cheese<br />

went so well together appealed to her. She moved to<br />

Griffith and, shortly after, started in the quality control<br />

labs at De Bortoli <strong>Wine</strong>s.<br />

Julie became interested in winemaking after<br />

progressing to winemaker’s assistant (“doing the jobs<br />

they didn’t want to do”, she says) and began studying,<br />

firstly for a Bachelor degree in <strong>Wine</strong> Science and then<br />

another in <strong>Wine</strong> Business, both from Charles Sturt<br />

University. She began looking after all the white wines<br />

produced at Bilbul, then moved onto the reds and<br />

fortified wines.<br />

The fortified wines are a particular favourite. To add<br />

to her successes, Julie was shortlisted as ‘Sweet<br />

<strong>Wine</strong>maker of the Year’ in the 2016 International <strong>Wine</strong><br />

Challenge.<br />

“Selecting the best parcels of fruit to<br />

produce fortified wines that will age well and<br />

then tasting them from the barrel as they<br />

change overtime is a bit like watching a child<br />

grow up and mature,” she says.<br />

Pair<br />

Noble One<br />

with Crème<br />

Brûlée<br />

Julie Mortlock has been working for De<br />

Bortoli <strong>Wine</strong>s for more than 25 years. Not<br />

only is she a great cook, a sports fanatic<br />

and a keen tennis player with a mean<br />

backhand, she’s also Senior Red <strong>Wine</strong>maker<br />

at the Bilbul Estate and helps oversee the<br />

company’s extensive fortified wine portfolio,<br />

one of the largest and most diverse in<br />

Australia.<br />

Since 2000, she’s also assisted Darren De Bortoli with<br />

the iconic Noble One Botrytis Semillon. Given the<br />

success and responsibility, it might seem surprising<br />

that winemaking was not her first passion.<br />

Allergens explained<br />

As of December 13th 2014 a new law concerning allergens came into effect that significantly affects the<br />

hospitality trade. Here is an outline of the regulations and what you need to do about them.<br />

The law states that all retailers MUST have information on allergen ingredients that MUST either be:<br />

• Written up front (on a menu or menu board) without the customer having to ask for help.<br />

• Sign posted to where information can be found or obtained.<br />

• Sign posted to say that information can be obtained from a staff member.<br />

If information on allergens is provided by word (by a staff member), this must be consistent and verifiable i.e.<br />

a business must have in place a process to capture information from recipes or ingredient lists from products<br />

bought in and this must be made available to staff.<br />

Allergens found in wine:<br />

Sulphur Dioxide (s)<br />

The key allergen found in wine is sulphur dioxide. Some wines may also contain traces of milk or eggs which are<br />

used as fining agents. In essence, wine is exempt from the new laws because wine labels already adhere to wine<br />

regulations stating that sulphites, egg and milk need to be indicated if detected in the wine:<br />

It is obligatory to state on the label that a wine contains sulphites if it contains more than 10mg/l of sulphur<br />

dioxide. This is shown as “Contains Sulphur Dioxide” (or sulphites/sulfites). SO 2<br />

is used to a certain extent in the<br />

making of virtually all wine and is a by-product of fermentation, therefore virtually all wine contains this level of<br />

sulphites.<br />

Milk (m) and Egg (e)<br />

Casein is the principal milk protein used as a fining agent. If used it is mostly for white wine to get rid of a brown<br />

colour or for clearing cloudy wine. Egg whites are used in the production of fine red wines for fining as they<br />

gently absorb the harsh and bitter tannins.<br />

<strong>Wine</strong>s which are fined with milk or egg products (detectable limits in the finished product at levels above 0.25<br />

mg/litre) should be clearly labelled.<br />

Fish (f)<br />

Isinglass, a particularly pure protein obtained from the bladders of sturgeon and other freshwater fish has been<br />

used for fining wine for centuries. It reacts with the excess tannins in harsh young red wines and is occasionally<br />

used to clarify white wines to be bottled without a final filtration. There is a noticeable trend away from the use of<br />

animal-derived products, mainly in the interests of vegetarians and vegans.<br />

What you need to do:<br />

It’s not as complicated as you might fear. To ensure your wine list adheres to the law, all you need to do is add a<br />

statement on your wine list saying “<strong>Wine</strong>s on this list may contain sulphites, egg or milk products. Please ask a<br />

member of staff should you require guidance.” However, you will have to ensure your staff are confident about<br />

which wines contain allergens. To help you do this, we recommend having a document or file available to staff<br />

showing all products and which allergens they contain. You can also check the back of the wine bottles where all<br />

allergen information will be shown, providing they are 2012 vintage onwards. Additionally, in wine staff trainings<br />

we suggest talking about wine allergens and showing where to find the information, so that everyone is aware.<br />

Lastly, if you have any further queries please speak to your SDM who will be able to help.<br />

Responsible drinking<br />

Understanding alcohol percentages<br />

In this period of Government-led responsible drinking and increased awareness of health issues and alcohol<br />

consumption, it is important to know how many units of alcohol are in a glass of wine.<br />

It is a simple calculation of the percentage volume alcohol multiplied by the amount of wine in litres.<br />

Find out the exact units in your wine and for more information refer to the website drinkaware.co.uk<br />

As an example, the amount of units contained<br />

in a glass of 11.5% wine is as follows:<br />

Per 125ml Glass<br />

(0.125L x 11.5%)<br />

1.44<br />

UK Units<br />

Per 175ml Glass<br />

(0.175L x 11.5%)<br />

2.0<br />

UK Units<br />

Per 250ml Glass<br />

(0.250L x 11.5%)<br />

2.88<br />

UK Units<br />

Alternatively, the amount of units contained<br />

in a 14% wine is as follows:<br />

Per 125ml Glass<br />

(0.125L x 14%)<br />

1.75<br />

UK Units<br />

Per 175ml Glass<br />

(0.175L x 14%)<br />

2.45<br />

UK Units<br />

Per 250ml Glass<br />

(0.250L x 14%)<br />

Profit calculator<br />

To calculate your gross margin on retail price you need to multiply the excl VAT cost price by the relevant factor<br />

to achieve the incl VAT list price at the required margin.<br />

For example, to achieve a 60% margin on a bottle of wine that costs £5.75 excl VAT, simply multiply 5.75 by 3.001<br />

to give a result of £17.25 inc VAT.<br />
