ncredible richness and complexity for a wine at this price – smashes all the Grand Marques at the same price

 

Schloss Johannisberger Riesling QbA Feinherb Yellow Seal, 2015
N
ot the cheapest wine in our portfolio but just benchmark Riesling, dry, mineral, wonderful concentration and perfectly balanced acidity. Verging on too expensive for many of us on an on trade list but the retailers loved it.

 Syrah Frappato 'Vitese' , Colomba Bianca, Terre Siciliane, Sicily IGP 2015

Colomba Bianca, Syrah Frappato ‘Vitese’ 2015
Another wine that over delivers at its price point, perfectly suited to both retail and on-trade.

 

Ventolera Syrah 2013
Probably my wine of the show – beautifully balanced and expressive, incredibly elegant for new world Syrah.
