This month’s offer from http://www.waitrosecellar.com/
comprises 12 bottles, three each of the wines below;
RRP £163.88; offer price £125; average price per bottle £10.42
Hunky Dory ‘The Tangle’, Huia Vineyards, Marlborough 2015 (RRP £11.99) A heady mix of Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and a generous splash of Riesling: crisp, seductively aromatic, and perfect with spicy seafood.
Chardonnay, Winemaker’s Blend, Saint Clair, Marlborough 2015 (RRP £14.99) Nutty, peachy, smoky, full-throttle Chardonnay, with maturation on the lees adding complexity. Try it with chicken roasted with lemon and tarragon.
Escarpment ‘The Edge’ Pinot Noir, Martinborough 2015 (RRP £13.99) Packed with bright red fruits (cherries and redcurrants spring to mind), a whiff of baked herbs and a satisfyingly long finish. A fine match for roast lamb.
