Exuding both elegance and finesse, Albariño honed from the prestigious region of Rias Baixas- the coolest and wettest wine region in Spain.
A winning combination is achieved as the coastal breeze provides a refreshing cool acidity while the high temperatures attribute delectable citrus and fresh crunchy green apple flavours. An interesting pinch of warming spice interjects on a dry, minerally palate.
Pair with oysters, fresh white crab or mixed shellfish platters.
Unique in both its production and its character, Puiattino Pinot Grigio breaks the mould and expresses an intensely punchier bolder body than a typical Italian Pinot Grigio.
This expression exudes enticing aromas of pear and refreshing hints of green apples. The palate has a touch of honeyed richness but is fresh and steely with an unforgettable finish.
Pair with pork, chicken or lobster.

An extremely captivating Autumn indulgence with bite.
Intensely aromatic with bold ripe black and red fruit notes, subtle aromas of black olives, chocolate, warming cinnamon and delicate vanilla on the bouquet.
Honed from Costers del Segre on the North East Coast of Spain, this Cabernet and Shiraz blend is satisfyingly creamy with a lingering comforting finish.
