Moraine Viogniier 2018  British Columbia

Harvesting, fermentation and aging of each lot of grapes was completed individually to capture the unique distinctive attributes of each site before being blended to create this delicious cuvee. Tasting notes: This is a rich, textural wine with classic Viognier notes of white peach and grilled apricots. Food pairing: Simple herb roasted poultry dish or vegetarian moussaka.

Price: $19.99

Neleman Chardonnay Muscat 2018  Spain

Tasting Notes: Dutchman Derrick Neleman studied to become a biodynamic farmer. After his training he ended up on vineyards in Spain and realised this is where he wanted to make his own wine. He settled in Valencia and focusses on making wines which reflect the terroir. All Neleman wines are made without the use of pesticides or additives and are certified vegan. They also plant trees to compensate their CO2 emissions and are carbon proof certified. The chardonnay in this wine was late picked to achieve an advanced point of ripeness, the muscat was harvested early to retain crisp acidity levels and subtle floral notes. Fresh floral aromas on the nose follow through to the palate with notes of white peach and citrus. Well balanced with a fresh finish. Bottled with a helix cork which acts as a `cork screw cap`.

Price: $18.09

Casa del Bosque Sauvignon Blanc  Chile

Tasting Notes: Gorgeous nose, pungent and complex with layers of aromas that transfer into the palate. Notes of gooseberry, key lime and herbs and jalapeno pepper hints give way to grapefruit and more tropical fruit richness, followed up with a touch of minerality. The palate gushes with pink grapefruit, gauava and a sweet, tart interplay that is fresh and vibrant. This has exceptional length and for the price this is a screamer. It is reported that Casa de Bosque makes one of Casablanca’s best Sauvignon Blanc (actually Chile’s best) and supplies Sauvignon Blanc grapes to some well known wineries with big names who know this to be true. Exceptional value, this wine has great purity and vibrancy that gushes with crisp fruit, with a finish you could keep time with.

Price: $18.99
