00% barrel fermented Semillon with 20% new oak gives intense, upfront aromas with flavours of nectarines and citrus fruits supported by subtle wood spice flavours. The wine shows exceptional balance of fruit and oak with a long, lingering finish. Excellent with a wide variety of foods, try this with risotto, shellfish or mild curries.
Continuing with the classically Bordeaux theme, this blend of 60% Semillon and 40% Sauvignon Blanc delivers richness and complexity framed by the sympathetic use of oak and fine acidity. Lime, melon and tropical fruit flavours at the moment and this will mature beautifully over the next 5 years.
A crisp and spicy dry white with delicate floral aromas and hints of fennel and white peach. Medium bodied and fresh with zesty citrus fruit flavours and lightly tropical hints balanced by good acidity and with spicy, mineral notes on the finish.
The Sadies' outstanding white blend mixes Chenin Blanc with Roussanne, Clairette Blanche and Viognier from a dozen different vineyards, using more Roussanne than in 2013. Old oak, full malolactic and layer upon layer of complex flavours distinguish the wine, with baking spices, apple pie, stone fruit, honey and a core of chiselled acidity. Drink: 2015-22
This wine is unfined and unfiltered, spending 11 months on the lees which gives a clean, fresh bite to the palate. Citrus, pear and apple combine and lead to a mouth-watering succulent finish.David employs fruit from six different sources, including his new base at Paardebosch, to make this Chenin. Typically focused and expressive, it's a combination of leesy breadth and tangy minerality, with stony acidity and very subtle oak. Essence of Swartland Chenin. Drink: 2015-20
Bright straw green. Refreshingly intense concentration of citrus, tropical fruits and fragrant fresh summer herbs, underpinned by an appealing degree of minerality. On the palate, a generous full bodied wine displaying an excellent balance of fruit and acidity with a fine citrus infused finish, a portion of indigenous ferment adding depth and richness.
The small appellation of Côteaux de Giennois lives in the shadow of its neighbour, the renowed Pouilly-Fume, its wines often slip under the radar and are hence excellent value. The classic gooseberry fruit on the nose is intense yet restrained, and leads into a palate bursting with flavours of lime and nettle, delivered with a clean and crisp feel.
