DEI CASTELLI DI JESI, VERDICCHIO, ITALY, 2017 10 / 40
A memorable Verdicchio: bone-dry with scents of Hawthorne, herbs & almonds. Refreshing & zingy pear & lemon flavours, a streak of flinty or saline minerals. Delicacy and elegance should be a hallmark.

Produced just north of Sancerre, this wine is fresh with piercing lemon & a light herbal essence. Sunshine with citrus & crisp acidity. A real food wine.

92 pts. Wine Advocate. White peach, crushed rocks, spice & brioche notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied Chardonnay that has depth, layered texture and length. Just get it.
FOURNIER, SANCERRE, FRANCE, 2017 13/ 52
Bright and clear to the eye, pale gold in colour with flecks of green. Powerful nose with floral and fruity aromas. Intense, piercing tartness that is always wonderful in a Sancerre with a long & delicious finish.
STEININGER, GRUNER VELTLINER KAMPTAL, AUS., 2017 13 /52
Totally zesty swirls of ripe citrus sweep up green pear and melon notes as they rise from the glass and flow across the palate. This Grunner has verve and liveliness.

Fruit & freshness & surprising breeding rule the day here. The wine opens with a lovely note of strawberry-infused crème de cassis. There’s surprising grip to the pure, plucky & seductively ripe fruit. Minimal tannins sail to the finish.
AMANCAYA, RESERVE, MALBEC & CABERNET SAUVIGNON, ARGENTINA, 2015 11 / 44
Using the expertise of two great winemaking dynasties – Bordeaux’s Château Lafite & Argentina’s Nicolás Catena. A superb, barrel aged wine with sleek tannins; chocolate, tobacco & berry fruit. Those who know….know.
