"The Lizard Wine" is a Swiss classic. A Chasselas from the Chablais region. With aromas of white flowers and citrus peel, the wine is crisp and elegant with a creamy richness on the mid light and a long mineral finish.
The wine is very pale lemon in appearance and has a delicate nose of apple skins with a hint of citrus. Despite the delicacy on the nose, the palate provides far more. This is a quite fruity wine with the apple coming through much more strongly. There are some very nice minerals, a lovely stoniness and quite a long finish.
A Biodynamic Chasselas from the Auvernier in the Neuchatel, Goutte d`Or is a richer style of Chasselas, with aromas of nectarine, white flowers, brioche and almond skin. The palate is fleshy, with good lees weight on the mid-palate and candied orange peel on the finish.
It was important to Rick that The Liberator should, in some small way, mark the events to date of the year 2020. Horrific bush fires in Australia, unprecedented plagues of locusts in East Africa, COVID-19… Plus, the uncertainty inflicted on the world with the perfect storm of Donald Trump, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin.
Golden yellow in colour, clean and bright. This is a supremely elegant, complex white that has enticing floral , citrus and toasted nut aromas. Very good acidity and a delicate mouth feel. Fruity finish with persistent freshness. Ideal with Spanish dishes such as paella and seafood.
