Tasting Notes

This remarkable new wine from the tiny island of Pantelleria is an important new addition to Tua Rita’s stable. Proprietor Stefano Frascolla and his wife, Simone, daughter of Rita Tua, fell in love with an ancient, rugged property in Bukkuran on the north east of the island. 2016 is their first vintage of this special sweet wine, that has beautiful tropical flavours; melon, guava and peach juice combine with exotic spice and star anise. A very impressive wine that’s sure to become a star in its own right.

TASTING NOTES

Le Mont’s quintessential flinty grace and poise is in abundance here. Sweet, complex and elegantly fresh; there is a core of wild jasmine, honeysuckle, orange blossom rounded by softly caramelised apple and pear.   The texture is full...

TASTING NOTES

This is an almost nostalgic wine that hints at childhood memories of baked apple, honeyed raisin, pear drop and fresh apple sauce.  Nuanced layers emerge with grapefruit pith and juicy conference pear alongside spun sugar, nectarine, and white peach.  Its soaring crest of acidity cleanses all the plump sugared fruit and marries beautifully with the accents of spicy botrytised apricot....
