Valpolicella Ripasso Monte Santoccio Nicola Ferrari 2015

'Ripasso' is a Valpolicella style which involves reusing the pressed skins of the grapes that go into Amarone during fermentation, which adds structure, power and complexity. Aged for 24 months in a combination of Slavonian oak botti and French barriques, this is one of the most interesting as well as enjoyable Ripassos you're ever likely to try. Is is just one third of the price of his mentor's, and I would say as good, as I think there is great purity in the wine.

Chorey-les-Beaune 'Les Bons Ores', Maratray-Dubreuil 2016

Chorey-Les-Beaune is a pretty modest appellation, underrated in the firmament of Burgundy’s vineyards, but this is precisely the kind of wine that can score big in great years. In Chorey-Les-Beaune ‘Les Bons Ores’ Maratray-Dubreuil we have a wine made by a brilliant winemaker that punches above its weight every year. This is one the best-value wines in Burgundy. Add to that the conditions of a great vintage and you really have a treat for the price. You don’t often see me recommend red Burgundy but Maratray-Dubreuil has nailed it.

AA Badenhorst Brak - Kuil Barbarossa 2015

100% Barbarossa from the only officially verified vineyard of the grape variety in South Africa. It is a grape variety that was thought to have been lost in the 1950's so finding an original vineyard of it is incredibly exciting! This is an intriguing and different style of wine, dark but with bright fruit and big tannins. Highlighted by Tim Atkin as on of his standout wines from the New Wave South Africa tastings.

Blank Bottle My Koffer 2016

This is a 100% Cinsault from one vineyard in the Breedekloof - "not a very hip and happening area!" Cinsault has enjoyed a fantastic revival in South Africa, and this is an interesting example. Breezy currants and briar fruits with a little spice - cinnamon, nutmeg and liqurice sticks. As Pieter says "a surprisingly intense personality for such a sweet, elegant little frame!"

Chateau Barraillots, Margaux 2014

From a family owned Estate, this has all of the classic notes of Margaux. It's elegant and pretty with high toned floral notes that dance over the top of the main body of dark cherries, spice and tobacco. And at stonkingly good value - what more could you ask for!

Barbera d'Alba 'Vigna Pozzo' Renato Corino 2014

We've managed this year to get one whole barrel! Only ten are made. Somtimes we get none, such is the demand for this delicious and great value Piemontese wine. A barrel equates to 25 cases. Pozzo, meaning water well, is an excellently sited special cru in La Morra planted with 60 year old vines. It ages deliciously. When young you would be best decanting. You can expect stewed plums, espresso, roses, pine; it's plush and smooth with lots of fruit. You can age it for ten years or more and it's as it best between 4 and 10 years.

Valpolicella Ripasso Monte Santoccio Nicola Ferrari 2016

Even winemaker, Nicola Ferrari, who is not one to blow his own trumpet, says the Ripasso 2016 is his best yet. This is truly beautiful Italian wine - – elegant, perfumed, lovely strawberry, cherry fruit that floats in the mouth with savoury earthy notes and a hint of that magical aroma of fine Amarone.

"You expect to find wacky stuff going on at a tasting like this, but The B.I.G from Pieter Walser takes the biscuit … Crazy? Yes. Delicious? Yes. It’s structured and tannic but with an appealing smash of ripe red and black fruit and some tobacco and tomato leaf notes too. Notorious." Chris Wilson, The Buyer, tasting at New Wave 2017

Sangiovese, 'Ciparisso', La Fralluca, Suvereto 2013

Gorgeous sangiovese with red fruit, soft oak and a little development. Deep sour cherry, a little blackcurrant, cola and sweetly decaying autumn leaves/stewed tea. Cocoa powder-like oak and vanilla hints. A glut of ripe-to-bursting summer berries. The palate is round with a sour cherry fruit note and beautifully fine, powdery tannins. The acidity keeps this feeling fresh, and palate is quite light despite the oak profile and ripe fruit.

Petrichor Estate 'Les Trois' Syrah, Sonoma Coast 2011

Petrichor has an amazing aroma of black olives, herbs, graphite with a touch of game. It’s a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, a typical Chateauneuf du Pape blend. It’s got lovely flavours and complexity; a bit of soul going on. This is a real boutique effort, made by a big collector of wine who found this small cool climate high altitude vineyard and got one of his favourite winemakers and a top viticulture guy to make the wine.

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2013

Indaco 2013 is from Tenuta Sette Cieli, an up and coming producer on the next hillside to the famous Sassicaia. It is a blend of the Bordeaux varieties. They are just out of the Bolgheri zone, on the Tuscan coast, South of Livorno, but if Bolgheri was re-drawn, they would almost certainly be within it. It is higher altitude than all but the highest of Sassicaia’s original vineyard, so the style tends to be a bit fresher than some of the more typical Bolgheri wines. 2013 is an important vintage for Sette Cieli as it was the one when the current owner took over the reins from his mother and took the wines in a new direction with a new winemaker . They are a producer to look out in the future. They share the viticulture team with Ornellaia.

Clos du Clocher, Pomerol 2011

Truly gorgeous Pomerol from a producer next to Trotanoy, Vieux Chateau Certan and La Fleur Petrus who has stepped up their quality and is now making wines of very high quality but it's still available at a very fair price. Gorgeous ripe aromas, cassis, plums and chocolate and smart wine-soaked oak, open knit, generous and classy but not too much; full and smooth and mouth-filling on the palate. This is divine wine that is very much to be enjoyed and drunk now. Of course, you can cellar it too, for 5 to 10 more years, but there is so much to enjoy now and in the next few years. Made from 77.5% Merlot / 22.5% Cabernet franc. 14.3% alc.

Domaine Grand Ormeau, Lalande de Pomerol 2014 Magnum

Lovely ripe plum and blackcurrant with cocoa dust, tobacco leaf, a touch of sandlewood. Very appealing. The palate is a fantastic contrast of those bright plum and currant fruits wrapped in dark secondaries – cigar box, dark chocolate and a bit of pipe tobacco. A producer just over the border from Pomerol, making wine, now with the help of the former winemaker of Petrus, Yannick Reyrel. Smooth for Bordeaux. Mull over it in a decanter and you can keep it for another 4 or 5 years, and get the tertiary flavours of mature Bordeaux.

Barolo Rocche dell Annunziata Renato Corino 2013

Considered a Grand Cru of the commune of La Morra. It’s completely South facing and is typically the fullest and ripest tasting of Renato Corino’s wines. It’s usually delicious when young, but this is a bit more reticent and closed than in some years. I think that’s no bad thing and a reflection of using less new oak than normal. It will develop in complexity and richness over the years. It really does need another 4 or 5 years to open up, but it’s special and a great wine from Renato, from this excellent vintage.

Sami-Odi 'Mahé & Ribo' 2015, Barossa Valley, Australia

A word from winemaker Fraser: "A composition of our most poignant and superlative casks and a birth year celebration of our cheeky and joyous twin boys Mahé & Ribo - 15 Burgundian pieces. 79 week elevage. Bottles were filled without filtration, fining or sparging (the removal of naturally occurring oxygen & C02) and all transfer’s were completed via gravity prior to bottling. A decadent wine which feels both lavish and congenial and whilst immediately offering enjoyment is pleading for some peaceful cellar time. It should be fascinating to ponder over the coming decades." 4398 bottles were filled

Buitenverwachting 'Christine' 2012

This is a stunning vintage. It put us off schedule by 2 hours, so much were we enjoying this exceptionally beautiful fine wine. One of these wines that can beat top end Cabernets and Bordeaux in blind tastings. It's drinking now. The value is absurd and a brilliant wine to stock up on. Bordeaux lovers will swoon when they breathe in the sweet perfume of sandalwood, ink, plum, oyster shells and graphite. In the mouth it has heft, flesh and savour, along with a bright acidity that gently ushers everything along. It's silky, elegant and deep. Beautiful wine.

Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Chaumes Georges Noellat Magnum 2011

This is a young grower who’s taken over the family business while his dad makes Champagne. Classic, ropey style with savoury, stemmy edges. Lovely complexity on both the nose and palate. With air it becomes glorious and is such a delicious match with food as well (we had it with roast chicken). Superb length. Drink now with decanting but will keep happily for a decade or two. Joyous

Domaine Terre de Mistral 'Rosalie' Sainte Victoire, Cotes de Provence 2017

Rosé, schmozé I hear you cry, what makes this one so special? What makes this stand out from the crowd, other than its seriously delicious red fruit profile and oh so delicate touch, is the addition of the secret ingredient, Rolle a.k.a. Vermentino. When added to the Syrah and Grenache, this adds a little oomph in the form of a tremendous mouth feel making it round, unctuous, and elegant, separating this from many in the market today, and that’s all apart from the fact it comes from what’s considered to be the best terroir in Provence, Sainte Victoire, which allows the grapes to ripen beautifully.

Prosecco 6.0 Brut Fratelli Collavo

Fragrant and fruity, with fresh notes of golden apple and white peach. It has a beautiful straw yellow colour with tinges of green . The carefully controlled sweetness, combined with a good freshness, is the peculiar characteristic of this very persistent sparkling wine. The name "Rive", recalls the difficult nature of steep and steep terrain, which requires processing and collection exclusively by hand.

Prosecco Collfondo Fratelli Collavo NV (Organic)

In a world where Pawsecco (yes, that is Prosecco for your dog) and Prosecco crisps actually exist, Swig is fighting a one-man mission to return this planet to normality and bring back Prosecco you actually want to drink! We guarantee that your first sip of Marco Collavo's 'Collfondo' will completely change your perception of Prosecco and have you head over heels in an instant. This is savoury and grown up with layers of citrus, white peach and freshly baked bread. Where other Proseccos are gone as soon as they are supped, this has a long, lingering finish, an unctuous texture and a super-fine, stylish mousse. One of the great joy's of this weeks Italian tasting was watching the glint in Marco's eyes as he helped customer after customer discover the joy that is this ancient-method Prosecco. So, be one of the cool kids and get ahead of the game.

Wiston Estate Cuvee Brut South Downs 2013

This is not merely one of the finest English sparkling wines on the market, but it’s another piece of liquid English wine history representing England as it really hits its vinous stride, like we said about Dermot’s micro cuvee bottling ‘Sugrue-Pierre’ when we first sold it in 2013. For anyone still unconvinced about the elegance, finesse, purity and ageability of English sparkling, Wiston Cuvée 2013 is the wine to banish your doubts. This is, we think, the best wine in England, bar none. It is so expressive and very much Grand Cru wine-like to drink. Lemon, creamy peach, white flowers and sweet pastry notes are to the fore. What struck me most, though, was the textural quality (owing to lees ageing combined with fermentation and gentle ageing in neutral barrels). It's supremely elegant, yes, but texturally it's on a different level from most other English sparkling wines.
