  • 2021 Estate SSV, Lomond WinesWhite Wine

    2021 Estate SSV, Lomond Wines

    £1295

    A refreshing, elegant blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier.  It opens in the glass with aromas of gooseberry and tropical fruit, layered with citrus and hints of spice. Beautifully balanced with full-flavoured passion fruit and citrus notes lifted by a zesty, mouthwatering finish.

    Drink 2022 to 2025  – Excellent to drink now as the Sauvignon Blanc’s racy acidity is to the fore but after 2 years in bottle the Viognier and Semillon start to emerge with the Viognier noticeable for apricot notes and the Semillon adding richness and texture.

    Lomond is situated on The Agulhas Plain near the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas – the meeting place of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans – and within sight of the sea.

  • 2018 The Hermit Crab Viognier/Marsanne, d’Arenberg Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2018 The Hermit Crab Viognier/Marsanne, d’Arenberg

    £1395

    The 2018 Hermit has an Incredibly fragrant nose full of sweet apricot and gingery spice. The palate is luscious and generous but has great acid which tightens the wine, adding freshness and a clean crisp finish. Slight pithy feel which builds on the spice notes. Lovely as a fresh stand-alone drink that still exhibits some mouthfeel, or equally well adapted to enjoy with a range of foods from freshly shucked oysters through to spicy Thai style dishes.

    Many of McLaren Vale’s vineyards are on free-draining soils underlain with limestone, formed by the calcareous remains of the local marine fauna. One such creature was the Hermit Crab, a reclusive little crustacean that inhabits the cast-off shells of others. The Osborn family thought the name appropriate for this, McLaren Vale’s first-ever blend of Viognier and Marsanne. “Hermit” is also an abbreviation for the French appellation of Hermitage, where the Marsanne grape variety dominates.

  • 2020 Viognier, TahbilkWhite Wine

    2020 Viognier, Tahbilk

    £1395

    This delicious Viognier from a dry vintage has an intense and fragrant nose of rose petal and ginger spice leading to a softly textured palate of apricot, peach and honeydew melon characters. All this lifted by a deliciously zesty acidity on the finish.

    “Our 2020 Estate whites will be remembered for their lifted fruit intensity, with no better example than this Viognier release. Vivacious ginger, rose petal and citrus blossom aromas are a siren’s song temptation to a textural palate of stone fruit and honeysuckle characters.” – Alister Purbrick ~ Tahbilk Winemaker & CEO

    Tahbilk’s relationship with the varietals that call France’s Rhone Valley home can be traced back to our earliest days with a good deal of fortuitous luck leading to the establishment of that connection rather than a grand plan looking ahead over 160 years!
    Prior to taking possession of what would become the Tahbilk Estate, one of the directors placed an advertisement in the leading newspapers of Melbourne, Geelong, Adelaide and Sydney for 1,000,000 vines. This resulted in the Tabilk Vineyard Company (as we were known then) receiving around 600,000 vine cuttings, among which was the white ‘Rhone’ varietal, Marsanne.
    Marsanne being the solo ‘Rhone’ whites’ flag-waver for the Estate ended in 1990 with the successful planting of Viognier and Roussanne.
    Marsanne will always be the undisputed leader of this trio, but there is no doubt that each of these two relatively new Estate ‘Rhone’s’ are showing that they have to have admirably embraced their adopted homeland.

  • 2018 Albion, Domaine Aubai MemaWhite Wine

    2018 Albion, Domaine Aubai Mema

    £1450

    Albion is a seductive blend of chardonnay and viognier hand-picked from vines that are over 25 years old.  The heady nose scented with pear, white peach, linden and acacia. Seductive roundness on the palate which combines fat and aromatic freshness. Aroma adds suppleness and lovely drinkability. An indulgent wine for sharing.”

    he origin of the name Aubais is the word ‘alba’ meaning ‘white’ which refers to the white rocks that rose out of the sea bed 15 million years ago, upon which the village of Aubai and its fortress were built.

  • 2019 ‘1753’ Viognier, Château de CampugetWhite Wine

    2019 ‘1753’ Viognier, Château de Campuget

    £1495

    An elegant Viognier with hints of nectarine, ginger and honeysuckle. Precise, crisp and balanced on the palate, with a roundness of generously structured fruit and a long, elegant finish.

    The vineyard that this Viognier comes from is situated 15 kilometres south of Nîmes, near the village of Manduel, in the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ of the Costières de Nîmes. The average age of the vines is about 25 years. The main characteristic of the vineyard is the soil, which is formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been deposited by the overflowing Rhône River thousands of years ago. These pebbles allow the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and due to this natural soil filter; the vine’s roots can easily draw the necessary water for their growth. The vines also benefit from the Mediterranean sunshine, which brings the grapes to perfect maturity and allows them to be picked at maximum phenolic maturity which assured elegance in the resulting wine.

  • 2020 The Broken Fishplate Sauvignon Blanc, d’Arenberg Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2020 The Broken Fishplate Sauvignon Blanc, d’Arenberg

    £1595

    A flashy sauvignon blanc offering lashings of tropicals such as passionfruit and gooseberry on the highly aromatic nose, boosted by an undercurrent of fresh cut grass and asparagus. The palate is refreshingly crisp and mineral. Vibrant citrus-like acid is a real feature. But this is accompanied by the generosity in flavour and a hint of added texture through some very light-handed oak treatment and a small dose of wild ferment. Balanced and long, served chilled this wine will hit the spot on a warm, sunny day.

    Despite being a good match for fish, the name has nothing to do with them! A fishplate is a term for the nylon plates that collect grape bunches on a harvester and often break when navigating around the steep, windy vineyards.

  • 2015 La Douzieme, Domaine Aubai MemaRed Wine

    2015 La Douzieme, Domaine Aubai Mema

    £1750

    The refined nose is driven by plum, cherry and peach with a spicy touch of garrigue (think herbes de Provence). Chewy, powerful palate with aromatic depth placing rich, suave Mediterranean flavours to the fore.

    The name is best explained by winemaker Mark Haynes: When I first started making this wine, the percentage of viognier was a twelfth of the total, about 8%, and with ‘twelfth’ being ‘douzième’ in French, the wine pretty much found its own name. (Somewhat more obliquely, from Côte Rotie we get ‘la côte’ one of whose meanings is ‘rib’ and being a feminine word, led me to Eve, who it is said was created from Adam’s twelfth rib.

  • 2016 The Laughing Magpie, d’Arenberg Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2016 The Laughing Magpie, d’Arenberg

    £1995

    This 2016 Shiraz/Viognier has a rather dark appearance with a vivid purple hue suggesting a complex dry red.  The nose is particularly intense, with peppery spice, hints of fragrant flower and perfume aromas, plus nectarines, apricots, ginger and herbs from the small parcel of viognier that the Shiraz is co-fermented with.  On the palate, the Shiraz is more dominant with sweeter fruit characters like blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry. The palate is rich and generous and soft silky tannins.

    The Kookaburra is a native Australian bird famous for its distinctive laughing call, Chester’s young daughters named them “Laughing Magpies”. The Magpie plumage is black with a stripe of white feathers, representing McLaren Vale’s first ever blend combining the (black) Shiraz and its white partner, Viognier.

  • 2019 Viognier ‘Age of Grace’, LismoreWhite Wine

    2019 Viognier ‘Age of Grace’, Lismore

    £2350

    Lismore Estate is based in Greyton within the Overberg region of the Western Cape of South Africa.  It’s here with the Sonderend mountains as a backdrop that winemaker & proprietor Samantha O’Keefe makes her fabulous wines.  ‘ I had a farm in Africa….’  The opening line of Karen Blixen’s classic memoir Out Of Africa comes to mind when you hear Samantha’s amazing story.  A native Californian, Berkeley educated, Sam realised her dream and bought a mountain in Africa. She then sold the bottom half to finance vine planting in the top half!

    This expressive, barrel-fermented 2019 Viognier seduces you with the beautiful perfume of honeysuckle and orange blossom and a textured palate of apricot, kiwi and pineapple.

    This Viognier is a reflection of Samantha’s obsession with how the special soil, climate and a mysterious sense of place come together to produce an extraordinary wine that tells you its story. The vines are grown on rose-quartz soils in Elgin, which is a cool, high altitude plateau. The region offers a lengthened ripening period which brings the grapes late into the season, often three to four weeks later than traditional wine-growing areas in South Africa. This provides the opportunity to develop deep complexity and concentration.

  • 2020 Signature Old Vines White Blend, MullineuxWhite Wine

    2020 Signature Old Vines White Blend, Mullineux

    £2595

    The Mullineux Old Vine white is a marvellous wine and showcases the quality of white wines from the Swartland region.  It has a nose of ripe, green citrus fruit and Christmas spices. The palate is fairly full and richly textured with notes of ripe pears, almonds and peaches. The finish is fresh and clove-like.

    The grapes for this wine are sourced from 7 sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland: one parcel of 36-year-old Chenin and a parcel of 7-year-old Grenache Blanc on the stony Schist based soils of the Kasteelberg; two parcels of 40-65-year-old dryland bush vine Chenin, one parcel of 40-year-old Clairette Blanche and a 56-year-old heritage Semillon Gris vineyard grown on the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg; and a parcel of 17-year-old Viognier on the iron-rich soils of the rolling hills west of Malmesbury.
