2014 Cairanne Cotes du Rhone Les Six Boutinot £16.99/Btl £5.00/glass
In an appellation often dominated by just two varieties, ‘Les Six’ is a new style of Cairanne which, due to the ancient varieties of Carignan Noir (10%), Cinsault (10%) and Counoise (10%) included in the assemblage, is also a Cairanne whose heart holds dear the traditions of yesteryear. Les Six is all about elegance and the expression of six different grape varieties; soft red fruits gently seasoned with a touch of oak.
2014 Anderson Valley Chardonnay Handley Cellars £29.99/Btl £6.50/glass
Blending three clones gives the Chardonnay a wonderful flavor, structure, and beautiful acidity. This vintage is softer and riper than many previous vintages of Handley Estate Chardonnay, yet remains true to house style with low alcohol and good structure. This wine shows flavors of Granny Smith apple, guava, lime and pineapple finishing with coconut and spice imparted from the barrels.
