At Duckhorn Vineyards, we have been making our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. Harvested from our estates and select Napa Valley vineyards, this rich and elegant Sauvignon Blanc was blended with Sémillon to add depth and complexity. Fermented and aged using both stainless steel and French oak, it offers ripe citrus and tropical flavors, refreshing acidity and Sémillon-driven silkiness.
Domaine Belleville was created in Rully by the Dumont family at the beginning of the 20th century, and now has 28 hectares spread out from North to South Burgundy. Impressive winery equipment ensures only the best grapes are selected for vinification and the wines are pure and precise. The estate was purchased by two Americans (one an academic at Harvard, one in finance), and already changes are being made including a refresh of the packaging. Young winemaker Charles is highly enthusiastic about the new direction of the estate. With a terroir, plot focused portfolio, Belleville is creating wines of great concentration at great prices.Charles asserts that the move to organic practice has resulted in higher natural acidity in the wines.
Generous. Baked lemon, peach, melon. Slightly smoky, with high acidity, fat mid palate (25% new oak), and a tropical finish. Very good
100% Chenin Blanc from Vouvray, one of the most famous regions for that grape variety in the world. A super smooth, well rounded example with mainly ripe apple flavours upfront, juicy acidity and theres also a little floral feel to it too - unmistakably an off-dry wine with the ripe fruit pushing forward. A very easy sipper, thoroughly enjoyable.
A delicious blend of four white grapes, traditionally grown in the Alsace region: Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and Muscat. Very pretty aromatic nose (flowers and turkish delight) with great structure from the ample acids and delicious clean, crisp fruity flavours. Plus theres a hint of sweetness to balance the acidity and complement the sushi rice and soy sauce.
Refined, poised and balanced.
A welcoming burst of warmth and intensity on the nose. A squeeze of ripe lemon freshens an intense palate of yellow stone fruit framed by mouthwatering saline acidity. Gentle notes of toast provide a savoury backbone to the luscious fruit, providing moreish balance.
Alain Geoffroy's estate produces this old vine premier cru from the Beauroy vineyard, accepted as one of the region's best. This is a very classic style, with aromas of white flowers, tinged with honey and lemon and a rich, rounded palate with those benchmark flinty notes.
Our Award Winning 2020 Vintage Chardonnay is an elegant English Dry White Wine combining notes of creamy apples and stone fruit with subtle creaminess of oak. A crisp and complex framework makes this wine an excellent match with food, and it also has the structure to support extended ageing. WineGB GOLD MEDAL WINNER.
Berene Sauls has a very unique story. Growing up in a small village in the Overberg, Berene admits that she came from a beer-drinking community, and wine was never really on her radar. Her first exposure was at the age of 19, when she began working for the trailblazing Hamilton Russell family as an au pair. Lasting only a month, her talents at childcare aside, Anthony Hamilton Russell recognised her drive and thought a job working in the winery office would better suit her. Thrown in at the deep end knowing really nothing about wine, she was soon exposed to every side of the business - assisting with exports, bottling and labelling, driving forklifts and picking during harvest too, as well as on the side, "growing and developing a palate that wasn't there!" Her curiosity kept her rising through the ranks, and fifteen years after starting her career, Anthony offered her the opportunity to make her first wine, aided by proficient head winemaker Emul Ross. She leapt at the opportunity, and the rest is history. She named her business Tesselaarsdal for the small village that she grew up in, and if you look closely at the label, you can make out two people walking across the mountain. This is Berene and her grandmother.
From unirrigated vineyards on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, and this is just her third release! Crisp acidity and lean minerality underpin notes of melon and tangerine fruit and accents of lime blossom. A triumphant expression of terroir, this medium-bodied, cool climate wine is both silky and fresh and boasts a long, elegant finish.
So electric, so brilliant, so intense - tangy cooking apples, salty and savoury depth that's ever so juicy. Incredibly long, with an insanely beautiful rexture to boot.
What a wine! We hope you fall as deeply for this wine as we have.
60% Petit Manseng, 30% Petit Corbu, 10% Gros Manseng. The Tauzy vineyard is exposed to the east. A fresh plot which allows the grower to push the maturities without the risk of developing over-ripe aromas and flavours. The soil is clay with iron. Yeild is 35hl/h with harvest carried out by hand in late October - only picking healthy, ripe, undried grapes.
Vinification sees a slow pressing in whole bunches using only indigenous yeasts with no additional SO2 at this stage. Vinified in old wooden barrels of various sizes and sandstone eggs then aging on fine lees for 8 months in these containers, then a final three months in stainless steel vats before bottling with a very low dose of SO2.
This dry Jurancon combines power and finesse and shall work well with smoked fish, grilled sardines, scallops, poultry in cream and strong sheep cheeses. Decanting recommended.
The wine shall age gracefully for at least ten to fifteen years.
"The conscious part of Pieter Walsers highly original brain thinks that this was the best blend of white grapes in the cellar, combining Verdelho, Palomino, Riesling, Chenin, Crouchen and Hárslevelü. Aniseed, pepper spice and wet stone flavours are complemented by notes of peach and creamy lees." - South African Special Report
Every one of Pieters wines is a story, rather than a grape variety, and its the juice inside the bottle which reveals that story. He doesnt own any vines, but instead scours South Africas winelands for top-quality fruit that has somehow slipped under the radar, now sourcing from nearly 70 sites. Some years hell make 20 wines, other years 35. With the benefit of anonymity, variety and regional identity take a back seat while parcel expression does the driving. These are some of South Africas most original wines, made by one of South Africas most original winemakers
This delicately refreshing dry white is lemon yellow in colour. On the palate flavours of fresh green apple and citrus are balanced well by aromas of stone fruit.
Delicious as aperitif, also ideal with fish, white meats and fresh cheeses
Dirk Niepoort?s white wines are among the best in Portugal and this Douro blend really shows why, with refreshing notes of fresh herbs, citrus and his trademark minerality. On the palate, the wine is vibrant and very elegant, showing good acidity and distinct freshness. The finish provides pleasant citrusy notes. An easy-to-drink white wine full of youth and vivacity which is very versatile with food. Great with salads and light pasta dishes but can also stand up to richer dishes like roast chicken.
One of the top handful of Chablis growers with a deeply individual style. Long lees ageing - 18 months or so, late-picked but not botrytised fruit, reserved oak influence using mostly used 600-litre Demi muids. The results are a nod to Côte d'Or grandeur but distinctly Chablis, maybe Chablis x1.5 - these are seriously, excitingly concentrated wines. Very much an estate to follow, on allocation, stocked by the good and great.
"Virginie Moreau presides over this leading domaine, where the order of the day is organic (but not certified) farming; harvesting ripe but clean fruit, cropped at modest yields; and extended maturation on the lees. Concentrated, textural wines that are some of the most characterful to be found in Chablis are the result... Everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended."
An emblematic property of Anjou, the Château de Fesles and its wine estate were built in the 11th century at the top of the 4th highest point in the Loire Valley.
Its exceptional geographical position as well as its proximity to the Layon river allow it to produce wines with a distinguished and complex character.
Buttery and creamy on the nose with a lovely dose of oak giving honeycomb and caramel notes to the green apple and peach fruit. Lovely precise acidity and chalky tannic texture. Long, bright, flavoursome and characterful. Starting to show some attractive development on the finish too.
Grown and made by David and Shirley Maudry at their dynamic young estate, Maison Lispaul. This premium Pouilly-Fumé spends 8 months in French oak barrels and an extra year in bottle resulting in a richer, creamier wine, with delicate tropical fruit on the finish.
Spain is really upping its game with its delicious white wines and this high altitude cool refreshing Rueda is an excellent example. Vibrant aromas of white peach, citrus and grass. Fruity, fresh palate, really elegant.
An excellent Chardonnay from one of Burgundy's best small family producer - Domaine Bachey-Legros . White Burgundy from off the beaten track, coming from old vines in the increasingly sought-after appellation of Maranges.
Aromas of lemon, minerals with nutty and smoky hints. Fresh and concentrated on the palate with oaky hints of vanilla as well as zesty lemons. In the background are floral tones adding additional complexity to this fantastic white burgundy.
Rustenberg is a well-known producer of high quality Chardonnays; the Stellenbosch Chardonnay embodies their house style. Apricot, coconut and orange peel aromas followed by flavours of marzipan, sponge cake and citrus rounded off with carefully-judged oak and balanced, fresh acidity.
This is El Porvenir's emblematic Torrontes. They have been making this wine since 2004 and it is the result of 3 different harvest days in search for good acidity, freshness, intensity in the aromatics, and nice weight in mouth.
Wine of elegant colour with shades of bright greenish yellow. Fresh and fruity character, intense and typical, with an interesting floral aroma that brings memories of roses. Yellow with bright greenish tonalities. Good character with nice citric notes. Good structure, balanced and with a very nice acidity.
