A Selection of Italian, French and Australian Wines from Procure


Misha Taylor and Jonty Hamer of the Procure Liquor distribution company have an eye for good wine that will succeed in the market place. The wine inside the bottle is the decider for them, having tasting all the wines they import and distribute. They also have an eye for the interesting labels, especially with a story behind them. The ‘Poggio Anima’ Italian brand features angels, some fallen. Bernard Schurr of ‘Les Courtilles’ in the Rhone is a producer of quality organic wine. As is ‘Paxton’ of the McLaren Vale who follows organic and biodynamic regimes. Procure also distribute the Quarisa wines of Johnny Quarisa, and these have proven to be very successful in wine shows as well as on the wine shelves. Recently, Procure took on the wines from the historical and revitalised Penley Estate in Coonawarra. Here, I review wines from all of these brands. All of the red wines share a sweetness and ripeness of fruit at a level not regularly seen in the wines of this country. www.procureliquor.co.nz
