Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine Sur Lie, Domaine de la Chauvinière, France x 2
Full of ripe fruit on the nose and palate; pears and citrus abound. Plenty of weight of honeyed fruit and a lovely sur lie spritz. Grown on granite soils giving added verve.
Tons de Duorum, Douro Branco, Portugal x 2
Intense tropical and citrus fruit aromas, intertwined with floral and mineral notes. Tropical and citrus flavours with a mineral streak on the beautifully refreshing palate. Well structured with a long finish.
Gouguenheim Torrontés, Valle Escondido, Mendoza, Argentina x 2
Beautifully balanced zippy white without the over perfumed character this variety can sometimes have. A lovely zesty wine with grapefruit character and beautiful balance.
Kumeu Village Hand Harvested Pinot Gris, Auckland, New Zealand x 2
The fruit aromas of this wine are very floral and reminiscent of roses. The palate is characterised by a rich texture making it especially good with food. The finish has a little more citrus fruit giving freshness and elegance.
Touraine Sauvignon Blanc, Les Silex, Trotignon, France x 2
This estate is run by husband and wife team, Philippe and Véronique Trotignon. This is super, elegant Sauvignon Blanc with lovely weight of gooseberry fruit with a beautiful mineral element on the finish.
House of Certain Views Unwooded Chardonnay, Hunter Valley, Margan, Australia x 2
From grapes sourced from around the Hunter Valley. Well balanced and filled with fresh fruit flavours. The idea for the name came when Andrew Margan used to work in Bordeaux and passed Vieux Château Certan every day.
