Description

The Wild Ferment Assyrtiko by Gaia is an astoundingly good, highly complex white wine grown in the rugged vineyards of Santorini.  Grapes are hand harvested with the free run juice fermented with natural yeast in a mixture of stainless steel (45%), old barrels (45% equally mixed between French & American oak and Acacia), and ceramic vat.  Fermentation is natural with batonnage and 6 months ageing on fine lees prior to bottling.


The wine itself is beautifully complex with aromatics of the acacia wood mixed with vanilla, toasty oak, citrus and touches of smoke.  The palate is layered and complex mixing citrus fruits, mineral notes and a refreshing salinity to the long, tangy finish.  Delicious and distinctive!

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.

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!
