The same 'Prestige Worldwide' format for this tasting - the 'portions' are 100ml 'Tasters' and 500ml 'Carafes' to keep the price reasonable...plus you probs don't need 3 £50/60+ wines open at the same time!! Or maybe you do...? You have the option to if you want!
Without further ado...here are the wines for this week, they are stand out examples of their type, business class juice...fully legit, bangers...all our wines are quality, these are full on tell-your-mates-about, show off juice...

- Next up 'The Roost by Bonterra - Mendocino County and Cali gave us this producer and we should be eternally grateful!! Biodynamic wine making give us a wine bursting with ripe melon and fragrant with lemon curd.
- We finish on something really special....Meursault, in this case by David Moret.The limestone, clay soils produce charming, concentrated wines with floral aromas, lively acidity and mineral expression.
3 spectacular, special occasion wines from the Length and Breadth of the New World...we can't wait to taste them with you!
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...point is they represent perfection in their style. Top of the tree!
