Sylvoz, Le Colture Prosecco by Olly Smith
Sylvoz, Le Colture Prosecco di Colli Trevigiani Brut, Italy NV "I've recently created the wine list for The Glass House on board P&O's latest cruise ship, Azura. I selected 32 wines from around the world and listed them by style. But one of the biggest challenges was when P&O asked me to select and blend the house wines for the ship. [...]The bubbly was a bit of a no-brainer - as soon as I tasted Sylvoz Prosecco Le Colture from Corney & Barrow, I knew if we could get it at the right price its fruity freshness would be a winner." Olly Smith, The Mail on Sunday

Mont du Toit 2003, Wellington

Jane MacQuitty's Keeper
The Keeper: Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne
"Delamotte was our wedding wine, so I have a soft spot for this quality-minded champagne house. Good, balances, blanc de blancs champagne, a white wine made only from white grapes, in this case chardonnay, is hard to find. Delamotte's sings with delicious fragrant, leafy, lemony fruit that makes a great summer apéritif now, but given a few years will fatten up and develop all sorts of rich, nutty, lemony biscuit flavour.

Rosé round-up, summer 2010
"Will Britain's new-found love affair with rosé run out of steam? Well not if the summer is good and not if the retailers have anything to do with it - there seem to be more pinks on the shelves than ever.
In this 21-rosé salute to summer I've gathered the latest crop for a seasonal round-up of some of the most interesting examples. June and July always throws up a clutch of promotions and discounts on the pink stuff too, so happy hunting.
Château Léoube, Côtes de Provence Rosé 2009, France
"13.0%, cork. Delicate colour with refined summer fruit aromas and a certain, gravelly minerality. The palate has nice concentration and fruit filling the mid palate before that tangy acidity dries the finish and gives this lots of punch and verve. 88/100." To buy this wine, please click here
Olivier Leflaive, Bourgogne Rosé Cuvée Margoton 2008, France
"12.5%, synthetic cork. Pale, delicate colour. Some herbal, grassy notes to raspberry fruit. The palate is dry and savoury - that delicacy persists, though the finish is rather abrupt and watery. 84/100." To buy this wine, please click here
Champagne Delamotte Rosé NV
"12% ABV, cork. Delightful, moreish, soft strawberry fruit. Lots racy, more mineral notes too. The palate has a certain creaminess and richness of that red fruit, but there's a nicely pitched acidity beating at the heart of this wine. Very dry and food friendly. 91/100."
