White Wine

2013 Marc Bredif Vouvray

RRP is $33. Owned by the Baron de Ladoucette, their Chenin Blanc's are made in a state-of-the art winery within the landmark Château du Nozet and are considered to be some of the finest examples of their type. Grown on the lower slopes along the Loire Valley in Vouvray and Vernou-sur-Brenne, the grapes for the Marc Brédif Vouvray enjoy Northern/Southern exposure. The vineyards have soils of mainly chalk clay, with some parcels having flint clay soils. The vineyards are 25-30 years old on average. "The wine is a brilliant pale gold. On the nose, there is a fine bouquet full aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit such as pears. One finds citrus notes such as grapefruit. The attack is gentle with a lovely vivacity where one finds agreeable notes of grapefruit on the lingering finish. It is a lovely wine, ripe and refreshing."


2012 Ferret Pouilly Fuisse Les Perrieres

Stunning top shelf chardonnay."From a vineyard that lies on a hillside part facing east, part south. Plenty of oak character here, plenty of butter and light toasted muffin notes, but that beautiful delicacy of light floral and mineral notes too. The palate has superb line and length, the lime of the acidity and the taut structure of the mineral and apple fruit is linear and deliciously flecked with flowers and herbs. 92/100."Tom Cavannan


2014 Riverby Estate Gruner Veltliner

"This is expressive, flavoursome and very attractive. A delightfully drinkable grüner showing apricot, lemon peel, floral and subtle white pepper notes on the nose. The palate is beautifully weighted and richly textured, and finishes long and pleasingly dry. A mouth-filling wine offering abundance of character and appeal. At its best: now to 2020." 93/100 Wine Orbit


2014 Big Sky Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc

What a revelation this old vine, single vineyard, hand picked and low cropped sauvignon blanc is. From a single block on Te Muna Road the 21 year old vinesy give a very complex sauvignon blanc. Whole bunch pressed and 20% barrel aged with malo. it has a bouquet of zesty lemon, grapefruit and honeysuckle. On the palate it has ripe stonefruit characters with notes of lemongrass and lime zest and flinty minerality. It has had minimal fining. Absolutely outstanding.


2013 Dry River Martinborough Chardonnay

New Release from a stellar vintage. 96/100 from Bob Campbell who writes "One of the country’s most concentrated and long-lived Chardonnays. At this early stage it is possible to appreciate the power and intensity of this impressively fine-boned and potentially complex wine but so much more will be revealed after at least 3 to 4 years in bottle."


2013 La Cana

Latest note is the 2011 "Aromas of white peaches, lychee nuts and spring flowers jump from the glass of this 100% old vine Albarino. The 2011 La Cana, from a relatively new winery founded in 2008, is medium-bodied, elegant and slightly restrained for an Albarino (which are usually flamboyant and aromatic). Fermented in both stainless steel and large format French oak, this dry white exhibits excellent texture as well as length. Drink it over the next year."Parker


2013 Domaine L'Hortus Grand Cuvee Blanc

"One of the leading estates in the Pic Saint Loup region, Domaine de l'Hortus (translates to "The Garden") covers roughly 55 acres and is run by Jean Orliac, who's considered the founding father of this up-and-coming region. This is a serious white that has remarkable purity and class, while not skimping on texture or flavor. The 2013 is a gorgeous effort that tastes like a high-end California Chardonnay, a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Viognier, with the Chardonnay aged eight months on lees in barrel, and the Viognier seeing only tank. It offers up beautiful notes of pineapple, citrus blossom, honeysuckle and white flower nuances, all of which are framed nicely by serious flinty minerality that comes through more on the palate. Possessing rocking purity, full-bodied richness and a clean, classy style, enjoy bottles over the coming 2-3 years."94/100 Parker


2013 Astrolabe Sleepers Vineyard Albarino


2013 Domaine Janasse Cotes du Rhone Blanc

The crisp, dry 2013 Cotes du Rhone Blanc (50% Grenache Blanc and the rest Clairette, Bourboulenc and Viognier) exhibits a sumptuous perfume, wonderful purity and lots of personality. “What this family operation has achieved over the last decade is nothing short of remarkable considering the breadth of wines made, from their Vin de Pays, which are among the finest made in France, to their world-class Cotes du Rhones and Chateauneuf du Papes…This impeccably run estate, in the capable hands of Christophe Sabon, his sister Isabelle, and their father, is one of the superstars of the southern Rhone Valley. Over the last 12-15 years, the quality of the wines has gone from strength to strength, with brilliant wines being produced in all price categories" R.Parker


2013 Domaine Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc

There is only one thing wrong with this superlative blend of 40% Grenache Blanc, 40% Clairette and 20% Roussanne, namely the paucity of its availability. Richly textured, with indulgent peachy, toasty notes, the wine has a distinctive brioche aniseed finish and a fertile seam of acidity in counterpoint to its innate generosity.
