Brut Océan is a bone dry, hand-harvested Jurançon Sec cuvée of 100% Gros Manseng, a main local varietal from the Jurançon appellation near the town of Pau in the extreme south-west of France. A superb alternative to Picpoul.
The Dr Loosen Estate is home to some of the best vineyards in Germany. The Mosel valley’s steep, south facing slopes create the perfect climate for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun. The cool climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly while retaining bright acidity.
Vines have been grown at Fontenille since the 13th century and a pilgrimage route, protected by UNESCO, runs through the vineyards to the neighbouring Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure, whose monks tended the vines for hundreds of years. The wines represent excellent value, with considerably more weight, interest and purity of fruit than other examples at this price.
Grown in the lush north-west of Portugal and influenced by the Atlantic, this bright, aromatic Vinho Verde is fresh and lively. Producer Marcio Lopes practices sustainable farming and takes a low intervention stance to his winemaking.
A deliciously pure, fruity southern Rhône blend of Roussanne and Viognier, Plein Sud is characterful, fresh and elegant.
Australian born Ant moved to New Zealand in 2002 and has become a legendary figure in Marlborough. Championing sustainable winemaking and farming practices he has developed a number of world class vineyards that produce the fruit for this beautifully intense Sauvignon Blanc.
A versatile white, exceptionally delicate with gorgeous mellow acidity, and light, fruity aromatics. Ripe conference pear on the nose, citrus lime and green apple on the palate. Interesting and unique, a real showstopper.
A Fresh, fruit driven and unoaked Chardonnay. Pale lemon in colour, with delicate citrus blossom on the nose. The palate is smooth and textured, with notes of refreshing honeysuckle, white peach, and subtle apricot, finished with a natural high acidity.
Clean, zingy and dangerously drinkable this Auxerrois is a regular go-to for a weekday wine. Auxerrois home is in the Alsace but is also grown in neighbouring Germany and this Pfalz expression has ripe & pure summery flavours with a low alcohol and medium acidity.
Coviar is the best Albariño we've tried at this price. Made by the brilliant Paco & Lola with grapes grown in the Salnés Valley, it is mouthwateringly delicious, crisp and full of flavour. If you're looking for the perfect Albariño - this is it.
