Chardonnay/ Rebula, Gasper, Goriška Brda/Collio, Slovenia 2015

Goriška Brda in Slovenian and Collio in Italian, the winery straddles the border producing classic varieties. This wine is a blend of Slovenian / Italian Chardonnay and Rebula / Ribolla Gialla – fresh and fruity wine with hints of peach, vibrant acidity and lovely roundness. A good summer wine with fish or on its own.


`Hécula`, Monastrell, Castano, Yecla, Murcia, Spain 2014

When we tasted this wine, we were immediately blown away. A deep purple colour with aromas of blueberries, ripe raspberries and liquorice. Full-bodied and succulent with an inviting richness and integrated oak and caramel notes.
Very moreish and an everyday drinking winner!

Alvarinho Minho, Reguengo de Melgaco, Vinho Verde, Portugal 2016

Grown on the cool Northern Portuguese coast. Pale lemon colour with aromas of fresh pure apricot, pear and lemon notes. Rich with creamy notes on the palate, medium to full-bodied with appealing citrus flavours on the lingering finish. The Eton Vintners team then selected this wine as the best white at a tasting in London earlier in the year.

Pinot Nero / Blauburgunder, Tramin, Adige / Sud Tirol, Italy 2015

This wine is produced in the Sud Tirol/ South Tirol, the German Speaking part of Italy. Fresh, fruity and herbal aromas. This juicy wine, with succulent classic cherry flavours with hints of spice and a touch of oak. Smooth and velvety with an elegant finish.
An easy-drinking Pinot Noir, ideal for summer drinking.
