Description

The nose shows citrus oil and pear, with some subtle floral/honeyed tones. The palate is very well proportioned, with firm mid-palate structure, medium rich mouth feel, and long carry. Flavour persists and even intensifies throughout its length. The wine finishes dry and saline, refreshing the palate. This vintage has a sappy, thirst-quenching quality about it.


The Cartology parcels are dry farmed bush vines, with a minimum age of 35 years, although most are between 40 and 50 years old. Average yields for these parcels is around 3 tons/Ha or around 20hl/Ha. Cartology 2022 is 92% Chenin Blanc and 8% Sémillon. Fermentation takes place in a mixture of cement eggs, clay pots, foudres and old oak barrels with natural yeasts and can last anywhere between 3 weeks and 11 months depending on the parcel.  The wine is kept on lees for 12 months with a further 5 months on fine lees prior to bottling.

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.
