New wines coming to our shop!


Our retail team has spent months looking for the perfect non-Bolney wines to add to our range. They had to be quality, flavoursome wines that could stand up against our own and, as with all of the items we sell in the shop, products that we are proud to stock and promote.

After numerous tastings and votes from staff and customers, we have selected four still wines: two whites from South Africa and France and two reds from Italy.

For Grapevine customers only, we are offering 10% off when you buy one of each, on top of your member’s free delivery. Contact Charlie via retail@bolneywineestate.com for more details.


Good Hope Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch, South Africa
£11.99



Vintage:
2017

ABV:
12%

Grape/ Blend:
100% Chenin Blanc

Winery:
The Winery of Good Hope was founded in 1998. They believe in combining innovation with a healthy respect for tradition. In other words, their approach is old plus new, and the best of both worlds.

Terroir:
The vineyards that produce this Chenin Blanc are old bush vines principally in the Helderberg area of Stellenbosch and located on extensively decomposed granite soils on ocean-facing, gravelly slopes, benefiting from cooling maritime breezes.

Notes:
Wonderfully lively, intense, fruity and beautifully balanced dry Chenin Blanc. Aromas of green apples and white peach invite the juicy, yet taut palate. A depth of fruit is what sets this wine apart. It shows great persistence of flavour and freshness that linger on the palate long after the wine has gone.
Here at Bolney, we would recommend matching with asparagus or white fish in a beurre blanc sauce. Heavenly!


Toques et Clochers Limoux Chardonnay, Caves du Sieur d’Arques, France
£16.99



Vintage:
2013

ABV:
13%

Grape/ Blend:
100% Chardonnay

History:
The 'Toques et Clochers' Chardonnay was first introduced in 1989 and takes its name from the gala dinner held every year and cooked by a celebrity chef (hence the chef's hat - 'toque') whilst the wine is auctioned and the proceeds used to maintain the church bells of a different wine village every year (hence the 'clochers').

Terroir:
Mixture of limestone, molasse and alluvial soils. The co-op pioneered soil analysis and terroir based selection in the region.

Notes:
Melted butter, nuts, caramel and toast. There is also a deliciously lemony twist in the finish. Yet another wine where the accent is on terroir and minimal intervention. It is unfiltered and unfined, so expect a small deposit at the bottom of the bottle. Think Burgundy, particularly Meursault.
Here at Bolney we recommend pairing with macaroni cheese or chicken and mushroom stroganoff!


Caparzo Sangiovese di Toscana, Italy
£14.99



Vintage:
2016

ABV:
13%

Grape/ Blend:
Sangiovese: 80%
Alicante: 5%
Petit Verdot: 5%
Merlot: 5%

Production:
Sangiovese sourced from the three different estates of Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. The vineyards are found in Montalcino, Castelnuovo Berardenga and Magliano. To ensure optimum fruit quality, the grapes are harvested at different times and vinified separately in stainless steel to retain fruit and freshness. The final blend is made just before bottling and the wine is aged for 1-3 months in bottle before being released.

Notes:
Bright ruby colour with hints of violet. Intense, fruity bouquet, with ripe blackberries, wild strawberries and spice. The palate has a warm brambly feel, full of soft ripe fruit and a persistent spice to the finish. Easy drinking
Here at Bolney we recommend pairing with duck or pasta in tomato based sauce.


Dolcetto D’Alba Roussot, Francesco Rinaldi, Italy
£18.99


Vintage:
2017

ABV:
12.5%

Grape/ Blend:
Dolcetto: 100%

Production:
The grapes were crushed and then the juice was fermented on the skins in thermo-controlled steel tanks for about 15 days, before being pressed, racked and put through malolactic fermentation. After a few months ageing in steel, the wine is bottled to bring out its fragrance and freshness.

Notes:
This wine is ruby red in colour with violet reflections. On the nose you get delicate hints of flowers and fresh fruit. It is dry on the palate with an aftertaste of almonds.
Here at Bolney we recommend pairing with a charcuterie and cheese platter.
