Perfumed, stylish, and dry, with an amazing freshness, intensity of fruit, spice, cashew nut and lemony shortbread notes that hover over a core of nervy acidity and continue lifting long after the last sip. Enjoy now or cellar for another 10 years, depending on your taste for mature Champagnes.

Lots of character, citrus shortbread, and just a whiff of delicate honey, with racy acidity, full mousse and an elegant frame. Open now or cellar for a few years more.

Sophisticated Garnacha Blanca with beautifully integrated oak--you might not even notice it! White peach, carnation, apple, cardamon and a hint of almond. Lingering finish. Seems inspired by white Burgundy but not an imitation. Balanced with depth and 2-5 years aging potential. Excellent. Calzadilla, created on virgin viticultural territory, is so good they named an appellation for them:). (2016 tasted 20 Oct 2018)

A favourite of mine. This Vermentino is great now, and going to be great in a few more years as well. Lemon drop, waxy, complex palate that will gain some weight as it develops. Have a couple for now, a couple for later in the cellar.

An easy bargain bubble, yellow apple and pear fruit, dry with a creamy edge. Nice aperitif or base for fun bubbly cocktail.

Stunning aromatic Dolcetto from 60+ year old vines. Amazingly versatile, delicious with anything roasted, sauced or tossed.

Pure high intensity Malbec with ripe plum, cassis, blueberry and violet notes. Considerable ripe, gripping tannins and warming alcohol. Integrated oak and vanilla. Wants a rare to med-rare steak right off the asado (Argentine BBQ). Drink now for the youthful vitality or over the next 8 years. Broad appeal. (2016 tasted 8 October 2018)
Argentina » Mendoza Province, Malbec
Youthful blend of Roussanne, Viognier and Clairette with no wood influence. Stone fruit, citrus, and lightly floral, it's intended for early drinking but balanced to age easily for 2-3 years. Great foil to the more common rouge CdRhone and poised to pair seamlessly with a wide range of foods. Very good. (2017 tasted 29 Sept 2018)

Unafraid to be traditional! Pale red, almost rosé in depth, lightly perfumed with fresh cherry/berry fruits, light ripe tannins, round mid-palate (like biting into a grape) and a surprisingly persistent finish. Serve slightly chilled. Impeccable wine-making based on the traditionally light Valpolicella style. Organic grapes and winemaking. No oak. Gulpable. Excellent. (2017 tasted 30 Sept 2018)

Supple, un-oaked Sauv Blanc with relatively restrained varietal character including white grapefruit, light herbal notes and lees-aged roundness. Neither Loire nor NZ in style. Bodega Pinuaga, organic for 3 generations, is now led by Ester Pinuaga who also heads up the European trade body Spanish Organic Wines. Excellent value! Broad food options. (2017 tasted 6 Oct 2018)
