Nahe, Martinique, Rhône Valley

The wine region of Nahe in south west of Germany has over 300 vineyards, and runs along the Nahe River, which helps moderate the temperate climate. The river Nahe runs parallel to the river Mosel and the two wine regions are only 40km apart, with Nahe to the south east of Mosel.

The three main regions in Nahe are Upper Nahe (diverse soil types including sandstone, slate, melaphyre and porphyry), Bad Kreuznach (clay- and loess-based soils) and Lower Nahe (quartzite and slate soils). There is so much geological variation in Nahe that there is little uniformity in style, although Riesling tends to produce the finest wines. We tend to import a majority of Rieslings for this reason, although Pinot Gris, Sylvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Graue burgunder and more recently Kerner are also grown in the region.

Whites make up 75% of the vines, with Riesling the most widely planted. This was not always the case with Müller-Thurgau and Sylvaner each being the most widely planted at different times over the last century.

The region, as with Mosel can produce fantastic Eiswine (ice wine) though, due to the astronomical production costs, good examples will come at a considerable cost.
The Rhône Valley is in the South of France and is situated in the Rhône river valley. The region has been growing wines for centuries and is generally split into two sub-regions. In the Northern Rhône, Syrah is the predominant grape variety, though it is often blended with other white varieties like Marsanne, Rousanne and Viognier, or the red grape Mourvedre. In the Southern Rhône, a wide range of white, red and rosés are produced alongside the undisputed king of the Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

The Northern Rhône is cooler than the Southern Rhône and has a continental climate with warm summers and cold winter. The appellations from North to South are Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Château-Grillet, Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas and Saint-Péray.

In Southern Rhône, the climate is more Mediterranean, with mild winters and hot summers. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the most famous appellation but others include Côtes du Rhône, Gigondas and Lirac. Large pebbles are used in the region, placed at the base of the vines to absorb the suns heat during the day, to keep the vines warm at night.

Châteauneuf-du-Papes are blended from the 13 permitted grape varieties, though Grenache usually dominates, supported by Syrah and Mourvèdre. These wines can be supremely rich and complex and typically warrant 5-10 years in the cellar for best results.
