4. Samas – The Perfect Summer White – (Armit Wines, 5 August)

“A tantalising blend of Vermentino and Chardonnay, Samas is far from your typical Sardinian white wine. A cuvee that takes Italian traditions and elevate them to create something truly unique. In 2018 the wine showcases a beautifully perfumed nose, with notes of orchard flowers and fresh citrus, with a rounder, fleshier body.

While absolutely perfect in Summer to accompany grilled fish or light salads, it will be a great addition to anyone cellar come wintertime (we just love it alongside roast chicken or cauliflower steak!). Pick up a bottle or two and start discovering this Sardinian gem.” – Armit Wines

1. Albarino Lagar de Cervera 2018

“Happy International Albariño Day 2019! Here at Armit we are delighted to take any excuse to talk about this wonderful, undervalued varietal. It makes the perfect summer wine, so we are offering a discount on our Lagar de Cervera 2018 throughout August to celebrate!
Now grown across the world, Albariño’s home is in the north-west of the Iberian Peninsula, in northern Portugal and the Rias Baixas of Spain. Here the high rainfall and Atlantic influence produce fresh wines that complement Albariño’s body and stone fruit flavours. Lagar de Cervera is mostly produced from the O Rosal subzone, on the border with Portugal along the inlet for the Miño river. This is widely regarded as producing the best – and most typical – Albariño, with a dense granite bedrock that gives the wines intense minerality and more concentrated flavours.
The winemaking of Lagar de Cervera is directed by Julio Saenz of La Rioja Alta S.A., who own the property. After manual harvesting and destemming, the grapes were macerated at cold temperatures for 10 hours, before being pressed and fermented in stainless steel. This vintage, 15% of the wine underwent malolactic conversion, and the wine was kept on lees for around six months with some lees stirring. These techniques all contribute to an impressive depth, complexity, and richness that balances well with the elegance and poise of the variety.” – Armit Wines
“So many flowers here, including honeysuckle, daffodils, almonds and cherry blossom. The palate has a really expansive, fleshy feel for this variety, without the addition of oak, but the acidity is still forthright and still right on point. Drink now.”
92 Points, James Suckling

  3. CHAKANA Ayni Malbec 2015/17 – £94.35 per case of 6 (Orders 7 cases)
Chakana produces some of the best Malbec in Argentina and Ayni is the top wine of the Estate. The Society last offered it – the 2015 vintage, in October 2018 at £83.97 per case of 6. It is a wine well worth cellaring.

5. UNESCO Prosecco – Biancavigna DOCG Brut 2017

HMWS on Cartize Hill, Valdobbiadene

“This month, the hills of Conegliano e Valdobbiadene, the heartland of Prosecco, were officially named a UNESCO World Heritage site. This designation proclaims the natural beauty of the area and officially recognises its contribution to the world of wine as a site of “exceptional universal value”. This is just the tenth site in the world to obtain this title as a “cultural landscape”, sharing this fame with Champagne, Burgundy, and the Langhe of Piedmont. This accolade is ten years in the making, driven by the winemakers of Prosecco Superiore DOCG themselves, and demonstrates their pride in their unique terroir and spectacular wines.

At Armit, we are equally proud to represent one of these top-quality producers, Biancavigna. The Estate is family owned and eco-friendly, with lighter bottles to reduce carbon emissions and a winery built exclusively from recycled materials. They are known for exploring the terroir in these hills to produce dry, site-driven wine exclusively from estate-owned grapes. This DOCG undergoes ageing three times the minimum, resulting in a fine mousse and wonderful aromatic intensity.”

Biancavigna DOCG Brut 2017 £79.76 case per 6 bottles (Winesearcher £102.60)

“Lime zest, peach blossom, and slate on the nose with a vibrant, mousse. Lean, crisp, and pure wine. Delicious.”

A. Bodegas Rafael Palacios

  1. Lauro do Bolo 2017 £89.50 per case of 6 – “Fermented in foudre (large oak), this is Rafa’s “entry-level” Godello but there is nothing simple about it; yields were incredibly low in the 2017 vintage due to frost and drought, so the fruit is even more concentrated and complex than normal. The nose is full of peach, crunchy pear and soft minerality, while the palate is taut and saline. There’s a citrus and mineral intensity, with real palate weight which creates a textured mouth-feel. This is a fascinatingly different wine from the previous vintage but nonetheless maintains that same streak of pure salinity that defines Rafa’s wines and which underlines why he is often referred to as the best white winemaker in Spain.”
    – Catriona Felstead MW

(Winesearcher: Average UK price £20.40 per bottle. HMWS offer £14.92 per bottle. Orders: BD 1 case, Les Wilson 1 case, Abdullah Kraam 1 case, Stephen Cameron 2 cases)

  1. As Sortes, Val de Bibei 2017 £208.30 per case of 6

    “I have pretty much fallen hook line and sinker for the Godello grape over 2017, and you’d be hard pressed to find a better example (well okay, you can go to the top single-vineyard Sorte O Soro from the same producer but expect to spend quite a bit more). Rafael is the younger brother of the rather brilliant Alvaro Palacios, and has chosen to put the family winemaking talents into some of Spain’s best whites. This is vibrant in the fullest sense of the word, a physical wine that wakes you up and makes you smile, full of citrus, fleshy white pear, honeydew melon, touches of hazlenut and a taut confidence. Drinking Window now to 2025.” – Jane Anson, Decanter

  2. Las Lamas 2016 – £169.39 per case of 12: (Orders: BD 1 case, Tony Lee 1 case, Abdullah Kraam 1 case) Out of stock
“They hit the nail on the head with the harvest date of the 2016 Las Lamas, and the wine shows incredible precision, elegance and symmetry this year. I’ve often discussed with Ricardo Pérez Palacios how sensitive Mencía is with the harvest date and how the grape has a very short picking window, to the point that, in 2016, you feel one day difference. They have been fine-tuning this wine in the last few years, and the result is evident. 3,655 bottles and some larger bottles were filled in June 2018.” – Robert Parker, 96/100

3. HMWS Wine Offer – La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva 2010

“We are very excited to announce one of the most hotly anticipated releases of the year: La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva 2010. This is one of the best vintages in living memory, rated “excellent” by the Rioja Regulatory Council, and has already been awarded 97 points by Tim Atkin MW, one of the leading authorities on Spanish Wine. He also named it one of his “Wines of the Year”. We are certain that 904 is peerless in the fine wine world in terms of value for money, and its consistently high quality is second to none. We strongly recommend this wine whenever it is released, and this suggestion comes more heartily than ever with this phenomenal vintage.

The wine is only made in great vintages and released when the winery thinks it is ready to drink but also has decades of life ahead. It is made in the traditional style of Rioja that defines La Rioja Alta’s wines, aged for four years in home-made American oak casks and racked by candlelight every six months to produce an immensely complex, smooth wine that is uniquely characterful.” – Armit Wines

904 Gran Reserva 2010 La Rioja Alta

£180 per 6 x 75cl bottles In Bond
£360.00 per 6 x 150cl magnums In Bond (limited stock)

“A step up on the memorable 2009, this shows just how special the 2010 vintage was. Marrying fruit from Briñas, Villalba and Rodezno, it’s a perfectly judged marriage of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano. Savoury wild herb notes segue into a palate that’s focused, balanced and graceful with the concentration and backbone to age. 2019-35” 
97 points, Tim Atkin MW

6. Matetic EQ Syrah 2014

“To me, [EQ] is consistently Chile’s best Syrah and arguably its best value red wine.” – Tim Atkin MW

“Matetic, one of the foremost wineries in Chile, made its reputation with Syrah. They were the first to produce the Rhone varietal in a cool climate in Chile, with stunning results. Today, we can offer one of their finest Syrahs, entering its drinking window now and available for immediate delivery.” – Armit Wines

The EQ Syrah has a name derived from the Spanish word for balance, ‘Equilibrio’, which is the wine’s central characteristic. 100% Syrah, the vines are grown on soils of decomposed granite, quartz, and volcanic material the El Rosario valley. The summer fogs and ocean breezes keep this area cool, resulting in an elegant, powerful wine that rivals much more expensive wines in terms of quality! Matetic are also one of the leading proponents of substantiable, organic, and biodynamic viticulture, with an array of certifications. This makes their wines doubly rewarding.

“They think cool-climate Syrah benefits from time in bottle, so they try to keep the 2014 EQ Syrah in bottle for at least one and a half years before selling it. They use grapes from three different granite-based soils, including volcanic tuff, which is quite unique in the region. A relatively cool year, 2014 was marked by a frost in the spring of 2013, which concentrated the fruit with lower yields and smaller bunches, and the wine fermented with some full clusters. It’s a concentrated and pungent Syrah, with classical Northern Rhône notes of black olives, violets and smoky bacon along with grainy tannins and very tasty flavors.”

  1. 2016 Tinto Pesquera Crianza, Alejandro Fernandez, Ribera del Duero, Case x 6 Bottles @ £75.12 per case IB: The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins.
  2. 2014 Tinto Pesquera Reserva, Alejandro Fernandez, Ribera del Duero, Case x 6 Bottles @ £112.62 per case IB: A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest to took place at the optimal ripening time. A classified ‘Excellent’ vintage has led to a wine with good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.

Limited availability, please order by Friday 29th March for delivery May/June. Please note In Bond prices are given. Duty & VAT will be added at time of delivery

4. Armit Wines 2009 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 Offer (19 January)

Vintage: Winter water reserves enabled the grapes to reach the end of the cycle in a balanced condition, despite significant heat and drought during the summer. Rain in mid-September slowed down grape ripening, resulting in good alcoholic and phenolic balance. It was a decisive turning point, producing a high-quality vintage as, after that, we enjoyed favourable weather that made this Gran Reserva possible.

Vineyards: Tempranillo (90%) and Graciano (10%) from vines over 60 years old in vineyards in Briñas, Labastida and Villalba.

Winemaking and ageing: The grapes were collected in boxes and transported to the winery in refrigerated vehicles to preserve all their integrity. After gentle destemming and crushing, the musts were put in stainless steel tanks where they underwent alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature for 17 days. Batches were selected and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation naturally over 78 days. In April 2010, the wine was transferred to 4-year-old American oak barrels (made in-house), where it stayed until April 2014. During ageing, the wine was racked every six months using traditional barrel-to-barrel methods. The final blend was bottled in November 2014.

Tasting: Outstandingly  intense cherry-red; clean and bright. The nose reveals a bouquet of great aromatic complexity, with balsamic notes of vanilla, toasted caramel, mint chocolate, tea leaves and cinnamon that gives way to elegant notes of stewed fruits and prunes. Creamy, well-balanced mouthfeel, with a harmonious freshness and smooth, well-tamed tannins that leave an elegant, complex finish.

Available for immediate delivery @ £156.20 per case 6 bottles In Bond. (also available in magnums @ £322 per case 6 magnums In Bond)
