Fine Wine Gifts: Hampers & Gift Baskets from Hampergifts.co.uk
A range of beautifully presented fine wine gifts for wine connoisseurs. A cut above the rest, the wines in this section are all top wines from the great classic regions. And while good to drink now, some will certainly benefit from ageing.
This creamy white has a seductive nose, a buttery palate with notes of honey and ripe, juicy fruit flavours, and a lovely mellow roundness which neither compromises its dry freshness nor its ability to age with exceptional grace. It benefits from oak barrel fermentation and 15 month of barrel maturity before being bottled. This graceful, elegant Chardonnay is presented in a contemporary pinewood case with sliding lid and rope handle.
"The cooler, racy 2004 vintage has produced some fine white village wines, and this rich, fat, buttery mersault, underpinned by steely acidity, is one of them. (2004 vintage)" Jane MacQuitty, The Times, 30 December 2006
90/100: "A concentrated white, with honey and vanilla notes. It's rich and well-balanced with bright acidity. A hint of new oak frames it all, leaving a toasty finish. Drink now through 2014."
Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, July 31, 2006

Accolades & tasting notes:
John Platter 2006 - 5 Stars
"Richly viscous in the glass, with a burnt orange-gold hue, this wine exhibits youthfully fresh, floral muscat aromas, and exotically spicy confectionary flavours on the unctuously textured palate. These rich flavours are well balanced by brisk acidity, and an attractive bitter orange twist on the clean, persistent finish."
- John Platter
Wine Spectator July 2010 94 Points
"Pure orange peel, tangerine, persimmon and clementine flavors are laced with hints of green tea, candied lime peel and honeysuckle. Rich, but racy and mouth watering. The gorgeous amber color and a caressing mouth feel just add to the pleasure. Lovely precision. Should age nicely."
Drink now or cellar long-term (15-20 years)
