2004 Pinot Gris, Bodega Lurton

Made in an appropriate style, it is one dry white wine that may even age well.

Usual Price: $138

2004 Chardonnay, Bodega Lurton
Jacques & Fran?ois Lurton started producing wine in Argentina in 1992 and now have extensive holding in the Mendoza region, which is where 90% of quality wine is produced. Mendoza is situated on a plateau in the foothills of the Andes and ranges in altitude from around 450 metres to 1200 metres above sea level. Chardonnay grapes are grown at the higher altitudes, as the temperature is cooler which consequently lengthens the ripening process.
Offer Price: $117
Usual Price: $138

2004 Alana Estate Sauvignon Blanc, Martinborough
Nothing subtle about the aromas on this one! It bursts with aromas of lime, gooseberry and passionfruit. Trademark characters for top end Marlborough Sauvignon. But what sets this Sauvignon apart is the length and intensity of flavour on the palate. Elegantly poised with regard to the fruit/acid balance, yet with generous palate weight to accompany full flavoured dishes. Cellar potential - Enjoy now or over the next three years.
Offer Price: $183
Usual Price: $215

2002 Alana Estate Chardonnay, Martinborough
Bright straw yellow. A bouquet of stonefruit, figs and cashews. Balanced by butterscotch and restrained sweet vanilla, nectarines melons and nuts fill a rich full palate. Finishing crisp and clean. Will benefit from careful cellaring 1-5 years.
Offer Price: $200
Usual Price: $235

2004 Isabel Estate Pinot Gris, Marlborough
With its earthy hues, the Isabel Estate Pinot Noir has black cherry and cinnamon spice on the nose. The typical pinot forest floor comes through finishing with mushroom and chocolate. The palate is supple and fleshy upfront. Dusty tannins make this wine very approachable now, however, given time it will develop complexity and further integration.
Offer Price: $200
Usual Price: $235

2003 Isabel Estate Chardonnay, Marlborough
This untypical Chardonnay has lifted aromas of perfumed tropical fruit, mineral lemon peel, white peach and almonds, massive depth of fruit, elegant floral flavours, honey smooth, creamy palate. The sweet ripe fruit is balanced by a well-integrated acidity and fine oak giving a seamless complexity. The wine is delightful drinking immediately, but will gain more fruit weight and complexity as the years go by. This is an interesting wine with full expressive flavours and a mouth filling presence, which is versatile with many dishes – particularly creamy seafood chowder.
Offer Price: $222
Usual Price: $260

Offer Price: $590
Usual Price: $690

1988 Ch. Pichon-Longueville-Baron, Pauillac, 2eme Cru (Half-bottles)
“A muscular, fleshy, full-throttle Bordeaux, packed with plum, currant and anise flavors. Perhaps a bit hot on the finish but generous and concentrated, with nicely integrated tannins; balanced overall for the long haul.

Offer Price: $683
Usual Price: $799

1990 Ch. Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac, 1er Cru
In its description of the 1990, the Chateau remarked that it was a year of ‘bonne qualite et production assez elevee. The wine possesses a superb colour and a rich almost leathery bouquet. Rich, complete and harmonious on the palate and with a long life ahead of it. (97 points, Wine Spectator, June 2001)
Offer Price: $2,675
Usual Price: $3,129

1988 Ch. Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac, 1er Cru
With a phenomenal bouquet of exotic spices, coffee and intense blackcurrant, and a firm but incredibly ripe palate of great class, this Mouton clearly has few peers amongst the 1988 crop. The famous Baron Philippe de Rothschild died in January of this year, and this highly underrated wine is a fitting testament. (98 points, Wine Spectator, Nov 1998)
Offer Price: $3,193
Usual Price: $3,734

2003 Hautes Cotes de Nuits, Domaine Bertagna
“Dark berries, flowers, black pepper, and spices are found in the nose of the 2003 Bourgogne-Hautes Cotes de Nuits. Medium-bodied and satin-textured, this fresh black cherry and blackberry-flavored effort reveals excellent mouth-feel, an expressive, almost zesty character, and a note of rusticity in the finish. Aged half in barrel and half in tank, it was bottled without being subjected to fining or filtration. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, August 2005
Offer Price: $255
Usual Price: $299

1996 Nuits St.Georges, Clos de la Marechale, Dom. Faiveley (Half-bottles)
Creamy, black cherry flavours are supported by muscular tannins with sweet, toasty new oak nuances. As you might expect for a vineyard that borders Corton, this is head and shoulders above most Nuits and has been mistaken for a Grand Cru wine. It is also sturdy enough to stand up to game dishes.
Offer Price: $333
Usual Price: $390

1998 Nuits-St. Georges, Maison Bertrand Ambroise
More abundant than the Cotes de Nuits Villages, with fuller summer fruit flavours and a marked tannic structure. Almost New World styled concentration on the palate and very much a modernist`s wine.

Usual Price: $350

1999 Barolo Cru Monprivato, Castiglione Falletto, Giuseppe Mascarello
"The 1999 Barolo Monprivato, a vineyard to which Mauro Mascarello has dedicated his life, shows some ruby with its dark garnet. The nose is quite complex, with much mint, spice, anise, and dried roses, and the concentrated, licorice-laced flavors, mouthfilling and with a significant tannic clout, are quite plush and sensual, but long and strong as well.
Offer Price: $850
Usual Price: $995

2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Bodega Lurton
This great classic grape variety has become remarkably well adapted in Argentina. The wine offers a bright red colour. On the palate it has soft rounded fruit and extremely fine tannins which serve to ensure the texture of the wine. This is excellent value.
Offer Price: $117
Usual Price: $138

2001 Gran Lurton, Mendoza
The vines for the Gran Lurton are exceptionally old and are planted are altitude. The yields from these plots are kept deliberately low by severe pruning. The wine has an extremely deep dark colour, and a fruitiness that blends delightfully with French oak that is used to give it greater depth: the wines are matured in oak for 8 months and left to bottle age a further 3 months before release.
Offer Price: $255
Usual Price: $299

2000 Calvario, Finca Allende
“The star of this quartet (available at one-fourth the price of the Aurus) is the 2000 Calvario, an unfiltered blend of 90% Tempranillo, 8% Grenache, and 2% Graciano that spent 14 months in French oak. This terrific 2000 boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a beautiful smoky charcoal, blackberry, and cassis-scented bouquet intermixed with licorice and new saddle leather notes. Ripe and opulent, with tremendous texture as well as purity, this head-turning, flamboyant, provocative Spanish red will provide immense pleasure over the next 7-10 years.” 93 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, February 2003
Offer Price: $679
Usual Price: $795

2000 Trinity Oaks Zinfandel
Trinity Oaks Zinfandel displays a fresh, jammy aroma of ripe blackberry, black raspberry, and boysenberry fruit augmented by pepper, clove, and cinnamon spice notes. The wine's rich, jammy, spicy flavors, balanced by fine tannins, make it an ideal choice for tri-tip steak, grilled lamb, sausages, hearty pastas, portobello mushrooms, baby back ribs, pizza, and hamburgers.
Offer Price: $140
Usual Price: $164

2001 Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley, Au Bon Climat
This distinctly cooler area enables a longer than average growing season, which, combined with low pH yielding soils, gives wines with notably small berry definition and great elegance.

Ripe, full-bodied, supple-textured, and long, it should drink well for 5-10 years.

1970 Fonseca
Over the last 40 years Fonseca has probably been the top Port house, and this is one of its most notable successes. Typically long-lived, the 1970 is only just beginning its plateau of maturity, but already the sheer opulence of its smoky black fruit and silky texture is proving hard to resist.
