Description

The Sorine estate is owned and run by the heirs of one of the oldest families in Santenay. The family estate was rebuilt in 1946 by Jean Sorine and was then taken over by his son Christian in 1990. Today Christian is joined by his wife Emma in the vineyards and winery. With limited vineyards available in Santenay the estate has grown and now also includes some Maranges.


Whole bunches are brought to the cellar after harvesting. Juice is extracted by pneumatic press followexd by a 36 hour ‘debourbage’ to allow the grape solids to be seperated from the must. The wine is then fermented in barrel undergoing bi-monthly ‘battonage’ for a period of 3 months. Aged in oak barrel for 12 months. Light filtration, no fining and bottled on the estate.

2019 Manda Chuva, Vinho Regional Peninsula de Setubal

Sercial

On the nose the Manda Chuva frmo Heredade de Portocarro is very mineral-like with saline tinges and white fleshed fruits. The palate is imposing, assertive and has superb minerality.  This complex white wine will continue to develop with a few years in bottle, but whilst young taking a sip is just like taking a dip in the Atlantic!

2022 Vouvray Cuvee Silex, Domaine des Aubuisieres, AC Vouvray

Chenin Blanc

Produced from several vineyards with Silex (flint) soils, this delicious Vouvray is pale yellow with a very reserved nose. The palate is dominated by minerals, with citrus, apple and lemon peel fruit. Floral aromas balance out the minerality with some lovely balanced acidity coming through on the finish.

2021 Scheid District 7 Chardonnay, Monterey, California

Chardonnay

Superb value, the Scheid District 7 Chardonnay comes from a vineyard at Greenfeld where the morning fog lingers to protect the vines from the heat of the sun. The aromas are fresh and extroverted with notes of yellow apple, pear and citrus, enhanced by hints of coconut, vanilla and toasty oak. The medium-bodied palate is soft and balanced with bright fruit, hints of butter and a lingering subtle oak finish.

2022 Walt Riesling, Pfalz

Riesling

The delicious Walt Riesling is medium-bodied, fruity and is made with fully ripened grapes.  It shows lovely flavours of peach and stone fruit, with a hint of apricot. Nicely balanced acidity adds grip on the finish. Great value and hugely popular.
