Welcome to October's Wine Club Selection. This month we are delighted to introduce a new producer we are working with from King Valley in Australia, Route du Van. These wines showcase an interesting coming together of the wine making traditions of Australia and Italy. We also welcome back a few old favourites to the Wine Club with a Sauvignon Blanc from the Pask Winery in New Zealand’s Hawkes Bay and a Pinot Gris from Dopff and Irion in Alsace.
We have also included a couple of really interesting Iberian reds from Portugal and Rioja which do an amazing job of showing what innovative winemakers are doing in some of the most rigorously regulated regions of the world.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who were able to attend our Members tasting. Aside from being a thoroughly enjoyable evening for Chris, Mike, Pete and myself it served as an invaluable bit of research which will help us to select the cases for the coming year.
Hopefully you will be able to come along to our Grand Tasting at the Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery on 3rd November. We were delighted to see so many of you at last years event an the Galleries of Justice and this years event is shaping up to be just as good.
As ever, thank you for your continued support with the Wine Club. I hope you enjoy this selection as much as I have enjoyed selecting it.
