Region: Italy, Piemonte

Retail Price: S$ 107.00

About the Wine:  Intense garnet in color, the nose shows floral and spicy notes perfectly blended: tobacco, cherries, cocoa and fresh raspberry highlights. The palate is rich, full-bodied and elegant. Wine of longevity that evolves slowly and steadily in the bottle. Great expressions even after several decades. Timeless. An aristocratic wine that finds its match with game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, saddle of venison, wild boar, deer and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white Alba truffle: cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli.

Niepoort Vintage Port 2000

Region: Portugal, Douro

About the Wine:  Concentrated  aromas  of  ripe  dark  fruits,  damsons  and  hints  of  black  pepper.  Intense  on  the  palate  and  full bodied with a long rich after-taste. It can be enjoyed now, but will become more complex with further cellaring.

About the Winery: When the Niepoort family moved from Holland to the Douro region of Portugal in 1842, the rise of one of the great port houses of Porto begins. And in 1997, as the fifth generation to make fortified wines for the family business, Dirk Niepoort began a brand new rise. Considered a true Renaissance man, Dirk continues to make port using the same traditional methods as his ancestors.

quinta-do-pinto-anjo-white-2014

Quinta do Pinto Terras do Anjo White 2014

Region: Portugal, Lisbon

Retail Price: S$52.00

About the Wine:  Brilliant citric colour. On the nose, it has notes of exuberant tropical fruit – Pineapple and Mango and floral aromas like orange. Very involving and complex. On the palate, it presents great intensity and volume, with a creamy texture that comes about with an ever-present natural acidity, giving long and persistent aftertaste.

About the Winery: The Anjo wines are a tribute to Quinta do Anjo that shelters the 53 hectares of vineyards that they have in their property. It is a tribute to their terroir that so well expresses what is pure to the region, as the indigenous Fernao Pires and Arinto grapes. Nevertheless, they also welcome French grapes such as the Chardonnay. It is a good example of the character and structure of their wines, supported by the freshness of the Atlantic sea breeze influence.
