Old & New World Wine Selection

This week we want to compare three of our beloved and unusual Italian wines with three of our favourite wines from the New World. We have three pairs of different wines that are interesting to compare in style and character, although they obviously come from different countries, regions and grapes. Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand with a Pecorino from Abruzzo; Nerello Mascalese, a typical Sicilian grape, with an Australian Shiraz Viognie; a Pinot Noir from Chile with a Cannonao from Sardinia.

Pecorino 2018 Trabocchetto, Talamonti 75cl £13.99 Abruzzo, Italy
This white wine is made from 100% Pecorino grape, a native grape variety from the Colline Pescaresi in Abruzzo. The wine has received more awards than any other wine from the region. The nose is complex and has plenty of tropical fruit, pears, apricot and peach with a hint of grapefruit. The palate is dry, bright and fresh, medium bodied with a very good structure and balance. It has a rich concentration of fruit flavours on the palate. The finish is long and intense with some lovely grassy flavours at the end.

Pioneer Block 1 Foundation Sauvignon 2019, Saint Clair 75cl £19.49 Wairau Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand
A powerful and intense wine with an aromatic nose of white gooseberry, currant, capsicum and fragrant tropical fruit with a hint of thyme. Luscious ripe blackcurrant and lime flavours envelop the palate, which has a chalky texture. This is a pure and focussed Sauvignon Blanc with a long, lingering finish.

Nerello Mascalese Micina 2019, Cantine Cellaro 75cl £17.99 Sicilia, Italy
Nerello Mascalese is a highly regarded black grape variety that takes its name from the Mascali plain between Mount Etna and the coast, where it is thought to have originated. The wine is aged for six months in French barrique. It has intense notes of deep red berries, sweet spices and hints of balsamic. The palate is rich and complex dominated by plums and red currant accompanied by elegant vanilla notes. It matches perfectly with rich dishes of red meat or spicy roasted vegetables or strong cheese such as Fontina DOP or Provolone Piccante.

The Laughing Magpie 2016, d'Arenberg 75cl £20.99 McLaren Vale, Australia
This is a small batch wine blend of Shiraz and Viognier from a very well-known South Australian producer. It is fermented and aged in a combination of American and French oak to add complexity and structure. The wine is rich and fruity driven with a mouthful of black plum, earth and spice, with a pleasing hit of black olive, sage and dried herbs. Full bodied on the palate with soft tannins and final blending with no fining or filtration.

Cannonau di Sardegna 2019, Antonella Corda 75cl £24.99  Sardegna, Italy
Antonella Corda is a forward-thinking female wine producer. The fruit for this wine comes from the Mitza S'Ollastu vineyard located between the townships of Serdiana and Ussana to the north of Cagliari. This Cannonau is an elegant wine with aromas of cherry, raspberry, blackberry and rose with the delicate spice of white pepper. Fresh berry fruit harmonises with the delicate warm notes from the year in botte (large barrels) resulting in very soft long tannins. 

Pinot Noir Riserva 2019, Vina Leyda 75cl £11.99 Leyda Valley, Chile
This Pinot noir is coming from an exceptional place in the coastal valley of Leyda, just 4km from the Pacific Ocean. It represents the Leyda terroir and always aim to respect the fruit and identity. Part of the wine was aged in used French oak barrels for 6 months, while the remaining 80% was kept in stainless steel tanks where malolactic fermentation took place. This wine has great aromatic intensity with a bouquet of blueberries and strawberries, plus a sprinkling of fresh herbs, the palate is light and fresh with juicy fruit and earthy notes on the finish.
