WINES OF THE SEASON

The White Wine Glass

175ml/250ml Bottle

Edmund Norton planted the first vines in Mendoza`s Luyan de Cuyo district. At 900-1100 meters,

the altitude moderates the temperature, causing an extended ripening season, and also expose

the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour. The result is

whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity.

Grapefruit and peach flavours are followed by floral notes and that distinctive white pepper spice, so typical of

this variety. Crisp, light and fruit-forward, a crowd-pleasing interpretation of Austria`s signature whites grape.

Norton has 680 hectares if vineyard in production meticulously mapped abd divided into parcels so

that the individua varieties, clones and training methods suit to soil each. Minimal treatments are

used in the vineyards, which are run along virtually organic lines. All the grapes are hand-picked in

the first week of March from eighteen- year- old vines planted on clay and gravel in the La Colonia

vineyard.

The Rose Wine Glass

175ml/250ml Bottle

Chateau Minuty was purchased in 1936 by the Matton- Farnet family and soon after, the vineyards

were completely replanted with a focus on traditional, local grape varieties, painstakingly farmed to

produce lower yields. By 1960s, this quality-led approach had paid dividends as the wines of

Chateau Minuty became a fixture on the lists of the finest restaurants of the Cote d`Azur.

Cotes de Provence Rose, Minuty Prestige 2018 £11.50/£15 £44

Intense aromas of citrus and white flowers give way to flavours of grapefruits, peach and red berries. There

is texture and structure here and a saline, mineral streak running through the wine which gives substance

and adds interest.

The grapes come from vineyards in various municipalities in the Abruzzo Region, with a

specific and dedicated pruning regime that limits fruit production and allows good

circulation of air around the bunches, ensuring even ripening.
