Description

The Formigo is a deliciously refreshing blend of Treixadura, Godello and Palomino from Ribeiro in Galicia. The wine has an impeccable balance of ripe citrus fruits, a slight grassy freshness and beautifully poised acidity.  This is a wonderful aperitif but is also custom built to match all manner of shellfish dishes. 


Manuel Formigo set himself up as a Colleiteiro in 2006 and is therefore formally recognised as a small grower.  Colleiteiros are limited to producing 60,000 litres of wine which must all be from their own vineyards.  Manuel owns 6 hectares of vines spread over 7 plots in the inland region of Ribeiro and is passionate about growing indigenous varities to Galicia.

Bordeaux Blanc Saransot Dupre.JPG

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!

District 7 Chardonnay.JPG

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.
