One of our standout wines in this promotion is the Château de Tracy Pouilly Fumé 2021. This Sauvignon Blanc hails from the Loire Valley and impresses with its effortlessly subtle hints of vanilla, along with a delightful combination of fruity flavours. Ripe mango, zesty grapefruit, and delicate elderberry aromas intertwine, creating a harmonious experience for the palate. This remarkable wine showcases a near-creamy texture that tantalises the taste buds with its smooth, rich, and fresh flavours. Its perfumed scent exudes a refreshing sense of freshness and pairs wonderfully with oily fish or red meat, elevating your dining experience. The unique grape variety of the Pouilly-Fumé is grown in a diverse range of soils, including flint clay, marl and limestone.

The next wine recommendation is from the Southern Rhone region – the Poivre D’Ane Dur A Cuir Rouge 2019, produced using some of the finest Grenache Noir and Tannat grapes the area has to offer. As you pour a glass of Poivre D’Ane, you’ll be greeted by a captivating combination of aromas. Black pepper and black cherry dance on the nose, accompanied by subtle hints of barnyard and a faint touch of burnt peanuts. 100% Grenache, the Dur A Cuir Rouge 2019 is extremely easy to drink, perfect as an aperitif or best to pair with foods that have smoky or charred flavors, like savoury, grilled meats, smokey BBQ sauces and even grilled veggies.

The Bordeaux wine from Château Caronne Ste Gemme 2018 is truly captivating, thanks to its blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot. This family-owned estate boasts 45 hectares of vineyards, with 70% of the grapes lovingly harvested by hand. After undergoing a meticulous winemaking process, the wine gracefully matures in oak barrels for 15 months.

When it comes to enjoying this fine wine, timing is key. It is best tasted within its optimal age of 5-10 years. So be sure to plan your tasting accordingly to fully relish the combination of exquisite flavours and revel in the harmonious culmination of expertise at every stage of production, from grape to bottle. On the nose, aromas of black fruits, liquorice and oak intertwine, creating an enticing bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals flavours of blackcurrant, plum, and earthy notes, reflecting the rich terroir of St Laurent Médoc. The wine exhibits medium tannins and acidity, providing structure and balance. Do try Château Caronne Ste Gemme as the perfect accompaniment for Asian dishes and fish, or pair it with cheese to enhance your evening and indulge in the fantastic flavours that these combinations have to offer.
