2021 Assyrtiko, Argyros, Santorini Dry | White | Still | 14.5%

The indigenous Assyrtiko grapes only see stainless steel during the winemaking process, which accentuates the saline profile of this wonderful grape. The wine offers up citrus peel, white blossom and pink grapefruit aromas as well as subtle ginger spice notes. The acidity is dazzling and contrasts beautifully with an attractive waxy quality on the palate.

Ready: 2022 - 2030
2019 Les Fillottes, Pomerol Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

This relatively new wine is a partnership between Francois Thienpont and Guillaume Thienpont, the family responsible for Le Pin and Vieux Château Certan in Pomerol. This is a fantastic way to experience what makes the Thienpont family so revered in the right bank of Bordeaux. It’s layered, silky, with pure berry fruit and so much complexity. There are floral notes from 15% Cabernet Franc, along with Chinese five spice, tobacco, espresso and dark chocolate.

Young: 2023 - 2034
2020 Kupe Pinot Noir, Escarpment, Martinborough Red | Still

No Drink Dates Available 
2008 Château Lafon-Rochet, Cru Classé St-Estèphe Dry | Red | Still

Now softening and harmonious with developing aromas of tobacco, pencil shavings and bitter chocolate, this 2008 still has tons of dark berry fruit and refreshing acidity. The tannins are softening and create a lovely frame around the complex flavours on the palate.

Ready: 2022 - 2030
