The Majestic Wine Definition range captures the quintessential qualities of the world’s greatest wine styles, with a little help from some of the world’s greatest winemakers.
The winery behind our Definition Shiraz has impeccable credentials. They share the same accolade as the country’s most iconic names – a five red star rating by James Halliday, author of the definitive Australian wine guide. This is an award winning team we’re thrilled to get on board.
But there was a catch – we had to keep their identity secret. With their wines typically retailing for over £20 a bottle, it was a compromise we were willing to make.
It’s a ripe, fresh yet rich blockbuster. Decanting is recommended if you drink it now. If you’re patient, it will keep getting richer and more complex over the next 3-5 years.BUY NOW
Gavi is made purely from local Cortese grapes grown in the cool hilly climate of Piedmont. The wines possess many characteristics similar to classics from northern Burgundy – earning it the nickname of “Chablis of Italy”.
