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

Cotes du Rhone Villages Les Coteaux  France

Tasting Notes: Cotes du Rhone Villages Les Coteaux has elegant berry-fruit aromas and a hint of cedar and spice, soft supple tannins blending with the cherry-fruit flavours result in a wine that is rich and smooth on the palate. Brambly fruit underpinned by subtle oaky nuances, lovely sweet spice; warm star anise with a touch of cinnamon. Mostly unoaked, a small proportion (15%) is part aged for 22 months in a few new but mostly older oak barrels to bring depth and subtle notes of complexity.A delicious accompaniment to grilled meats, heart-warming casseroles or a classic shepherd’s pie.

Price: $20.95

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

Mission Hill Limited Edition Viognier  Canada

Tasting Notes: The 2017 Limited Edition Reserve Viognier was farmed from a single vineyard estate in West Osoyoos where the semi-arid climate and desert-like condition provide an ideal environment for grapes with a high skin-to-juice ratio. The result is vibrant flavor and intensity. After a gentle pressing we fermented the Viognier in a mixture of concrete eggs, oak barrels, and stainless steel tanks. The concrete eggs have given the wine incredible texture and weight, the oak barrels have added more texture and a little spice, and the stainless tanks have kept all that amazing apricot and melon fruit. This delightful Limited Edition Viognier has intense aromatic notes of jasmine and dried apricots. A full-bodied white wine with flavours of warm summer peaches and hints of candied ginger, it is a wine that stimulates all the senses!

Price: $27.00
