BORTHWICK VINEYARDS

It took nearly 10 years for Paddy Borthwick to convert part of his family’s sheep and cattle station in Wairarapa, in the south of New Zealand’s North Island, into a wine estate. He was convinced that an old, stony river terrace with free-draining alluvial soil and a unique micro-climate was perfect for growing premium wine grapes. After years of studying and winemaking experiences abroad, Paddy Borthwick returned to Wairarapa and began planting vines in 1996. A firm believer in sustainable agriculture, and with a relatively hands-off approach in the vineyard and winery, he crafts lively, tense and incredibly precise wines.

NEW RELEASES

TASTING NOTES

Hailed a curvy, racy beauty from Antonio Galloni and a fascinating wine from Monica Larner, Sassicaia 2017 is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Sassicaia 2017 is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. In her preview assessment of the wine, Larner describes incredibly well the tension existing from vintner and vintage and how, like...

An impressive release that speaks volume of the pedigree of Tenuta San Guido’s wines. Guidalberto is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. A voluptuous nose charged with blackcurrant, black cherries, damson notes is rained in by mineral, almost balsamic hints of black olive, mint, tomato leaf and fresh black pepper. The exuberant nose of youth shouldn’t distract from the...

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

“Taut, elegant, ethereal expression of Nebbiolo. A purebred Barolo that entices with notes of red fruits, meadow flowers and just hints of Italian leather and spices. Already approachable, Cerretta will be a sure joy to revisit in five to ten years.” Armit Wines

2017 Giusto Di Notri, Tua Rita

Bottle 75cl £52.68

TASTING NOTES

The blend consists of 95% Tempranillo from 40-year-old vines in Las Cuevas, El Palo and Las Monjas in Rodezno, complemented with 5% Graciano from the Montecillo estate in Fuenmayor. The Graciano gives the wine an aromatic intensity and acidity, to carry the structure and elegance of the Tempranillo. The grapes are vinified separately in four-and-a-half-year-old American oak for three years, and...
