    Mark Shannon and his partner Elvezia Sbalchiero have lived in this region for 15 years and now create some of the area’s best red wines but it this white that I fell in love with. It is a blend of Fiano 60%, Falanghina 30% and Verdeco 10%. The Fiano clone used is closely related to Viognier and helps to explain the lovely textural feel of this wine. Pasta creamy sauces and white fish would all work well here.

    Made by flying winemaker Matt Thomson, this is an elegant fruit driven wine with lovely citrus notes. Alpha Zeta was set up by Matt Thomson & specialist Italian Wine Importer Liberty Wines in 1999 with the aim of producing modern fruit driven wines from the hills outside Verona.

    For those who think that Soave is just another rather dull dry white wine then I heartily recommend this wine to them as it will prove that the region has seen real change. It is a lovely drink on its own or will pair well with simple fish or chicken dishes.

    New Zealanders can be straight forward folk. Winemaker David Clouston lives in a Black Cottage so when he was looking for a name for his range of Marlborough wines why obviously he chose Black Cottage. The name may be simple but the wine is a lovely highly attractive dose of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a burst of fruit, gooseberries, lime, tropical fruits underpinned with a fresh acidity and just a little bit of residual sugar to round it off and make it a really enjoyable glass.

    Now when you buy a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc you know what you want is a punch of screaming gooseberry backed by a citrus gang and thirst quenching acidity that is more refreshing than any power shower. This wine more than delivers that and at great value despite the strengthening New Zealand dollar.

    This is the sort of wine to have waiting for you in the fridge when you come in from a bad day in the office or having survived dragging the kids round the supermarket. Serve it ice cold and relax.

    Possibly the best selling white wine in our Wine Bar the Bridge because it has much of that grapefruit tang and a herby leafiness that is reminiscent of a good Sauvignon Blanc. Anyone who likes bright fresh refreshing wines and is willing to try something different will love this wine. My biggest challenge is always to find wines that completely over deliver for the money and this one easily does that. I heartily recommend it.

    Pale lemon gold with an explosive nose. Lovely flavours of apricot, peach and acacia blossom give way to an elegance and freshness balancing perfectly the richness of the grape.

    Beautifully understated Sauvignon that allows you to enjoy a chilled glass without it shouting at you. Limes and acacia notes on the nose, soft citrus tones in the mouth with a lovely crisp finish.

    First discovered by sailors confusing it for Table Bay to the north, False Bay has long been a haven for those navigating the treacherous Cape of Good Hope. The cool coastal breeze which sweeps off the Indian Ocean temper the ripening process, extend the growing season and produce expressive wines with more precise varietal characters and purity. These lifted aromas make the wines accessible, perfectly balanced and full flavoured.

    Kevin Judd spent 25 years as the wine maker for Cloudy Bay possibly New Zealand’s most famous Sauvignon Blanc brand. It was undoubtedly the wine that launched a market for New Zealand around the world. He has now set up his own project producing wine from vines grown over greywacke soils that have his distinct signature of tremendously attractive noses backed up by clean crisp and acidity and a real mouthful of green fruit.

    He is only producing relatively small amounts and as in the early days of Cloudy Bay it is released to the UK wine trade by allocation so stocks are strictly limited. Buy early whilst we have some for it is sure to go quickly

    Vineyards

    Grapes for this wine are partly taken from the estate’s high altitude (400m) Peyroli vineyard and partly from the growers with whom winemaker Géraud Blanc has long-term purchasing partnerships.

    Vintage information

    2013 saw the coolest May in 20 years, a fresh June and a hot July: an exceptional climate for the vintage. Flowering was 15 days later than average. Water reserves remained sufficient throughout the summer until harvest which began in early September. The grapes were characterised by high acidity but lower sugars than usual, with very interesting aromatic potential. The wines of this vintage are promising, bright white wines with excellent balance.

    Vinification

    After settling the must for 12 hours, the fermentation was carried out in stainless steel, at 15°C for 12 days. Yeasts normally used in Champagne were selected to maximise the fine, elegant Chardonnay aromas. No malolactic fermentation was carried out in order to preserve the natural freshness and acidity. The wine was given the lightest filtration which kept its body and fruit character. No oak was used at all, in keeping with the purity and precision inspired by Chablis.

    Tasting Notes

    Bright golden yellow in colour, this wine has a lovely, expressive nose. Rich and full of peach and apricot aromas with touches of tropical notes. The palate shows delicate acidity and a smooth texture.

    Vineyards

    Peter Lehmann Wines works with over 140 growers across the length and breadth of the Barossa Valley region, with access to over 750 individual vineyard sites. Fruit for this wine came from selected vineyards in close proximity to Adelaide.

    Vintage information

    The 2014 vintage started with very hot weather but was interrupted by two days of heavy rain in mid February, After this, the weather settled down and the region experienced wonderful Indian summer conditions for the remainder of the vintage. This allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, producing wines of exceptional quality.

    Vinification

    Cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks prior to blending and early bottling have produced a lively and fresh yet complex white wine.

    Tasting Notes

    Layers is a unique blend that delivers a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the sense in each and every glass. Finely structured lemon tinged Semillon provides a wonderful backbone to support the soft floral aromatics of Muscat, entwined with the delicate spice of Gewürztraminer. Pinot Gris introduces texture and mouthfeel to complete a wonderfully flavoursome wine.

    John Quarisa has 24 years experience making some of Australia’s most successful wines including stints with McWilliams Nugen and Casella. He is a very well respected show judge and has won two of Australia’s most prestigious wine making trophies the Jimmy Watson and the Stodart trophies. He now makes wines in his own name but doesn’t believe in taking life too seriously so he created the fun Johnny Q brand which is meant to portray wine in a light hearted approachable way like the man himself.

    This Chardonnay is aged in a mixture of stainless steel and oak giving it a rich creamy texture to compliment the flavours of peach and ripe pear.  The oak gives a delicate buttery note in the background.  It would work well with most white meat dishes but I think Chicken or Turkey would work best.

    The Cloud Factory, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Intensely perfumed aromas of nettle and ripe tropical fruits. These carry onto the palate too. Along with limey flavours and a rich minerality – classic Marlborough Sauvignon. The wine is sappy fresh, clean and delicious.

    The Crossings Awatare Valley, Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Winner of the IWSC Trophy for the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc this wine really reflects the land from which it comes. The fruit is sourced from three different vineyard sites within the Awatare valley and it is the careful blending of this fruit that gives the wine its complexity.

    “In the mouth the flavours are white nectarine, passion fruit dashed with fresh lime. A tense wire of acidity thrums through the palate and leaves a tingling lip-smacking freshness with the long finish. Terrific balance and poise make this a very exciting wine indeed,” stated the ISWC.

    Snapper Rock Sauvigon Blanc

    Made from carefully selected grapes grown in the Ward Valley to the south of the Marlborough Region of New Zealands South Island.The cool climate here ensures that the wines have a racy acidity that make them particularly refreshing. This is the best vintage yet of this great value New Zealand bottled ‘Savvy’. Crisp red pepper, wild herbs and zesty acidity define this wine. Highly recommended.

    Matthew Jukes in the Daily Mail said of it

    ‘This spectacular Sauvignon Blanc is my favourite sub-tenner example of this grape in New Zealand and it has just this second arrived in the UK.’

    The Crossings is one of a number of brands owned by the Yealands Family Estates overseen by Chief Winemaker Tamra Kelly Washington. In 2013 it won the IWC Trophy for the best  Sauvignon Blanc in the World. Quite some accolade.  This latest vintage is a refined elegant kind of wine with intense aromas of limes, passionfruit and herbal notes.  In the mouth the minerality of the area shines through alongside abundent fruit flavours of melon, citrus fruits and green pepper. The wine has great length lingering delightfully on the palate and is a fine companion to dishes such as seared Tuna.

    Two Rivers ‘Convergence’ Sauvignon Blanc is the product of four vineyards situated on the banks of two rivers the Wairau and Awatare. These sites bring a complexity and minerality that is little seen elsewhere in Marlborough. If you like your Savvy’s grown up and more reminiscent of good quality Sancerre then this is the wine for you.

    The wine is made by David Clouston who is also responsible for the Black Cottage wines we list. David is highly respected and has been shortlisted for the Australasian Wine Maker of the Year. Two Rivers has been particularly successful in competition winning several Gold medals around the world.

    We recently tasted this wine at the BBC Good Food Show and it proved incredibly popular with the visitors, so much so that we ran out on two days.
