    A one-hundred-point white? From South Africa? I can almost hear the tutting and clucking from here. But I defy anyone to taste this monumental wine, preferably among a line-up of other, world-class wines and resist its charms. The crop was down 60%, resulting in an old-vine Chenin of mind-blowing focus, depth and concentration. Quince, lemon […]

    $52.00in any six

    $57.00 per single bottle

    More digestive than a fruit bomb, complex, textural, salivating and screaming for charcuterie or delicately spiced asian foods. Yet smells of  rose petals, turkish delight, rose hip tea, and drying herbs. Delicious! Smells sweet but not bubblegummy and cartoony, more Turkish market spice and rosewater bath in the most refined, evocative sense. Succulent in texture, […]

    “Now that I’ve visited the vineyard, I admire this wine even more, such is the heroism required to grow grapes in such an isolated site. Combining Chenin Blanc and Palomino grown on sand a limestone soils, it’s pale, fragrant, yeasty and salty with notes of kelp, quince and citrus and some stony, struck-match reduction.” 97 points, […]

    The 2015 Fief du Breil from Jo Landron is a stunning Muscadet. Layered, fleshy (if not served too cold!), complex and earthy with a long, racy and nutty close. A wonderful bargain from one of the Loire’s finest and most respected growers.  If you haven’t tried this wine, you must! “This is Jo Landron’s cru […]

    Domaine de Souch’s Monplaisir Sec is pure, ethereal and extraordinarily complex. Apricot, peach, honey, melon and pineapple. The palate is all dancing lightness and yet the wine has immense presence. Neat, discreet and balanced acidity. Delicious and unique. Grown on clay and limestone soil with puddingstone, “Poudingue” in French. The vineyard is located on the […]

    Clos Naudin is one of the great Vouvray estates. Although the wine is off-dry, the sweetness lends it incredible tension and some extra heft. Clos Naudin’s 2017 Vouvray Demi-Sec has an uncanny quality of richness and texture combined with explosive energy. Very complex notes of quince, peach, stone fruits, walnut, and honey, never straying into […]

    Chenin as Riesling. The 2017 Anjou Blanc from Thibaud Boudignon is utterly different from the ‘a Francoise’. Tighter, finer and more linear, the fruit profile is more citrus and white peach, rather than the yellow fruits of the ‘a Francois’. Rippling power and energy, the fruit really dominates with faint notes of lavender honey, nuts […]

    2018 and 2019 are a return to cooler vintages in Rías Baixas, and I was able to compare the entry-level Albariño bottling from Albamar from both years, the youngest of which, the 2019 Albamar, had just been bottled. Here, they use purchased and own grapes, and it’s produced in a fresh style. This is a little riper than […]

    $33.00 per single bottle

    Hand-picked, foot stomped and macerated on skins overnight before pressing, the Quealy Fruilano is fermented in stainless steel, remaining on lees until malolactic fermentation (then racked soon after). This is a deliciously creamy, flatteringly textured wine with lovely fruit notes of apricot blossom, gentle honey and some nutty complexity. Lovely.

    Review for the 2018 – Light straw-yellow colour, slightly cloudy in the glass – an unfiltered appearance. Lemon, herb and floral aromas, very attractive. The wine is bright and fresh, crisp and lively, with a dry finish and brisk acidity. A touch of nuttiness. Honey grew the longer it was in the glass. Struck-flint notes […]

    $31.00 per single bottle

    Distinctly floral, almost soapy perfume, apricot and liquorice root, and a fair amount of exotic spice. It’s an unusual version of Fiano, but it has the texture going on, with fine chalk and raw almond grip, golden apple and bitter lemon, a waxy richness, and enough acidity to balance. Finish is long, aromatic, and juicy. […]

    Valenciso’s Blanco 2018 is a super pretty, aromatic wine with crushed citrus and savoury notes and a juicy, silky yet tangy, vibrant palate. Racy yet with good texture thanks to the low yields from the ancient vines. The finish is salty, savoury and refreshing. The Blanco is crafted from 100+ year old vines of Viura […]

    The dark-straw color with orange reflexes and the bold tannins on the palate mean that this is, in some sense, an orange wine.

    This wine has spent 3 years under flor, hence sous voile. Utterly unique and mind bendingly complex. Aromas, of seaweed, walnuts, butter, spice and limes. But it’s the palate that sets your senses racing. Fleshy and juicy, but with real textural grip. Almost bitter, but not. Fine, elegant, with a cutlass of mineral, briony acidity […]

    Unlike most of Montlouis, which is on clay and flint, this four hectare vineyard (planted in 1998) lies on a pocket of clay and Bournais limestone, the stone from which it takes its name. It’s a beautiful site, certainly one of Montlouis’ finest. Chidaine’s vinification here is exactly the same as his Clos de Breuil […]
