Description

The Church House Chardonnay shows a lovely pale golden colour that is crystal clear in the glass.  The enticing nose is fresh and elegant, blending Nectarine and Melon with well integrated butterscotch and toasty notes.  Full and rich on the palate, yet retaining elegance and freshness too. The finish is long, balanced and clean. 


This terrific wine comes from two distinct vineyard blocks on slopes widely considered the best sites in Gisborne.  The low yielding vines are dry farmed to ensure they work hard for their nutrients, resulting in complex and concentrated wines.  The grapes are partially hand-harvested, with these being fermented in barrel, and partially machine harvested, the grapes going into stainless steel for a cool ferment to dryness, with 4 months resting on their lees.  The final blend is wonderfully well integrated and balances texture and freshness effortlessly.

2019 Bordeaux Blanc Sec, Chateau Saransot-Dupre

Semillon/Sauvignon

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!

2020 Palomino Castillo de San Diego, Barbadillo, Cadiz

Palomino

The Barbadillo Palomino Castillo de San Diego is crisp, fresh and unfortified!  This dry, refreshing white is a great example of the Sherry regions principle grape variety.  The wine is perfect spring/summer quaffing and a great stepping stone to appreciating the more complex, fortified and solera aged versions from DO Jerez.
