Patriots beat Chiefs to head to the Super Bowl – highlights here!

Elizabeth Chardonnay
Was £258
Now just £232 for non members and £219 for members
A long, warm summer meant 2017 was a stunning vintage for Chardonnay in Washington and this wine is a testament to it! Upon pouring you’ll be hit with intense aromas of pear and tropical fruits which translates into a rich, buttery flavour high in natural acidity on the palate. Aged for 8 months on it’s lees and only very delicately oaked, less than 800 cases were produced of this exclusive wine so grab it while you can!

Flying B Cabernet Sauvignon
Was £300
Now just £270 for non members and £255 for members
A tribute to Stuart Bledsoe – Drew’s Grandfather, who lived on the Flying B Ranch. This Cabernet Sauvignon with a dash of Syrah has seductive aromas of blueberry with notes of cedar and tobacco. It is full bodied with a dense mouth feel, silky soft tannins and a long, lingering finish. Drink now or through until 2028 – if you can wait that long!

Was £420
Now just £378 for non members and £357 for members
This flagship wine from Drew Bledsoe is an absolute Cabernet Sauvignon corker. The nose explodes with bramble fruit, crème brûlée and a dusting of allspice, and the palate is luscious with silky tannins and a long finish. Balanced acidity cuts through the richness leaving you wanting another glass… and another.

Doubleback: A Video Update From Drew Bledsoe


With perfect timing we have just received this video from Drew Bledsoe, I say perfect timing as the samples of the Doubleback 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon are winging their way through customs as I type and we are due to start stocking the latest Bledsoe Family Winery Wine – the Flying B Cabernet Sauvignon – once that arrives with us too, hopefully some time in August.

“We were just sampling it [the Flying B] from barrel yesterday and it is fantastic” said Jordan Hostetter, who has the rather enviable job of Director of Operations at Doubleback.

If this video doesn’t want to make you book a flight to Washington I don’t know what will!  Enjoy.

Winemaker News: Drew Bledsoe Wine Reception At Endicott House, MA.


 

As you know, we recently supplied Drew Bledsoe’s stunning Cabernet Sauvignon to Wembley for the recent round of NFL matches.  It was wonderful to see the Jacksonville Jaguars box stocked with wine made by a New England Patriots quarterback.

Drew regularly makes his way to Boston to market his wine via our good friend Jennifer Williams-Bulkeley who runs Vinolytics and who has been a wonderful supporter of Sporting Wine Club.  Drew and Maura have an upcoming Wine Reception on 27 November at MIT’s Endicott House where their wines will be paired with Endicott House’s Executive Chef Eddie Cerrato’s culinary delights.

A big thank you to Jen for showing a whole swathe of US wine lovers in the Boston region that SWC is out there and reminding us again of the unique opportunity that exists in the US!
