Fresh and lively Riesling with a delicate green tinge and hints of freshly picked limes. The palate shows great fruit purity with a refreshingly crisp, dry finish. The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Eastern slopes of the Eden Valley. Lying at 380m above sea level, the acidic sandy soils enhance the natural acidity of the Riesling grapes.
A new blend from Paul Cluver, sitting between their Dry and Close Encounters which are no longer produced. The colour is pale, with a green apple tint. The nose shows fresh green apple, apple blossom, beeswax and fynbos honey notes, while the palate is crisp and clean – lemon sorbet-like.
Light in colour with green hues, it is fruity and elegant on the nose, with aromas of ripe fruits and a hint of lime peel. On the palate it is elegant, well-balanced with flavours of yellow and green fruit, and a long finish.
Williams Chase Rose is a beautiful classic blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. By harvesting at night, the freshness of the wine is preserved and a short cold-maceration for the must in contact with the skins imparts the enticing pale shade of pink. Dry, with a touch crushed red fruits. The perfect Provencal rose.
A fragrant and well balanced wine, AIX`s hypnotising salmon pink colour reveals a fruity freshness and premium rosé. The nose is fresh and fragrant, delicate yet youthful and offers classy notes of watermelon, strawberries and flowers.
Characterful Riesling from the steeply sloping vineyards of the middle Nahe region. The vines grow in stony, weathered volcanic soils , with certain amounts of slate and quartzite. Fermented and matured in stainless steel vats. An off-dry wine, very typical of the fabulous Donnhoff estate.
Dreissigacker owns vineyards in the Rheinhessen which is currently undergoing what might be termed a ‘Rheinhessen revival’ with winemaker Jochen at its forefront. Jochen‘s wines all have Organic certification and he also uses Biodynamic methods for much of his estate.
From the coolest and highest vineyard in the Watervale sub-region comes this vibrant and aromatic Riesling. The outstanding vintage is evident in the Grosset Springvale 2018. Intense citrus aromatics linger on the nose and the taut slightly minerally palate has lemon and lime pith and enticing floral notes framed by a vibrant acidity.
Fantastic dry Riesling from Wachau in Austria. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine is stored in large old Austrian oak barrels with capacities of 3,000 - 5,000 litres. The wine ages on fine lees for six months before being bottled in August. The nose is pure with hints of lime and peach kernel.
A classic Provencal blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, hand-selected grapes from vieilles vignes with an average age of 50 years old. By harvesting at night, the freshness of the wine is preserved and a short cold-maceration for the must in contact with the skins imparts the enticing pale shade of pink.
