  • Alpha Zeta was started in 1999 with a range of modern, fruit-driven wines from the hills outside Verona. Working with leading New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson, their aim was to work with growers (rather than buy bulk wine, which is standard among most wines from Verona at this price) to obtain ripe grapes (by reducing yields and picking later) and then, using Matt's expertise, preserve these flavours in the finished wines. The result is a realisation of the potential inherent in Veronese viniculture. The vineyards are situated in the hills outside Verona in the Valpantena Valley. Cool currents blow down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites, which helps to moderate the climate, enabling the grapes to ripen slowly. This helps the grapes to retain their aromatic compounds and acidity. The soil is poor and chalky so the vines are put under stress which helps to produce superior quality fruit. The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed, crushed and chilled on the way to the press with no addition of sulphur. The juice was naturally settled, racked and cultured yeasts were added to initiate fermentation which took place at 12-14°C. Half the wine was fermented in oak, and one third of the blend was put through malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity. Straw yellow and bright in the glass, this wine is aromatic and concentrated with a thread of minerality. The palate is clean, fresh and fruit driven, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel and long finish. Great with Dungeness crab mac n cheese or veggie equivalent!

The result is a realisation of the potential inherent in Veronese viniculture. The fruit for this wine is grown in special, selected old vineyards with excellent south-east exposure, where growers have reduced their yields quite considerably to produce excellent quality fruit. The grapes were harvested once very ripe, then they were gently pressed and immediately cooled to preserve the aromas. Fermentation took place slowly at 18°C avoiding any skin contact. Ageing took place in stainless steel tanks. This wine has aromas of ripe peach and pear with slight hints of flint. It is refreshing and crisp on the finish, with attractive Pinot Grigio characters, On the palate, it is rich and well-balanced. Fab with lemon chicken piccata, seafood and vegetable anti-pasti or seafood risotto Vegan
  • Sourced from old bush vines from Paarl and Drakenstein. No irrigation is used in the vineyards and very little crop control is needed due to the age of the vines naturally restricting yield. All grapes are harvested by hand. Produced from only free run juice, part of the blend is naturally fermented and a tiny percentage in old barrels. The wine is left on fine lees for an extended period for greater palate weight and mouthfeel. Andersbrook Chenin Blanc is a fresh, dry Chenin with orchard fruit and citrus aromas with soft, delicate orchard fruit on the palate well balanced by crisp acidity.

The wine was aged on lees for 5 months after fermentation which continued to build the mouthfeel and texture of the wine. Aromas of elderflower and stone fruits mingle with ripe gooseberry. Real depth of flavour alongside succulent texture and a zingy finish. The definitive summer sipper. Match with freshly shucked oysters, or good fish and chips. What could be more English? Vegan

  • This lovely family estate was founded by Pauline Dietrich's father Michel in the medieval village of Rions in the area known as Premières Côtes de Bordeaux. They make fresh, approachable wines to Terra Vitis and Bee Friendly environmental standards. This quaffable white Bordeaux comes from two plots nestled in a hillside in Soulignac, in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers area of Bordeaux. Michel Dietrich and his wife Isabelle originate from Champagne and Alsace and they spent a while in Australia making wine. Returning to France they saw an opportunity to make superb wine in the Cotes de Bordeaux, and focusing on quality whites. Now their daughter has taken over the running of the business an winemaking and Michel is 'retired'! A blend of 60% Sémillon and 40% Sauvignon Blanc. The fresh fruit characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc is perfect match for the richness of Sémillon.

  • Stoneburn Vineyard was established in the heart of Marlborough’s famous Wairau Valley in 1989 on a stony riverbed site. Named after the owners’ Scottish heritage, the vineyard has gone from strength to strength in terms of production and quality. Stoneburn wines are made by their world-class winemaker, James Macdonald. James grew up amongst the vineyards and wineries.

  • In the heart of 200 uninterrupted hectares the Domaine Calmel & Joseph sits in a remarkable geographical position. At altitudes near to 300 metres, the cultivated plots are surrounded by richly diverse woodland and wild Mediterranean scrub. Volcanic, clay and limestone. The climate is typically Mediterranean, warm and sunny with low rainfall. Winters are mild, summers are hot and the usual dry conditions ensure that the grapes ripen fully. Vines are ploughed; no weed killer is used. Pruning is short to regulate the vine's growth and its yields. The grapes are picked at night, in two passes. The first harvest is done at a relatively early stage in maturity, to keep freshness in the wine. Then 15 days later a second harvest is done, to get good concentration and varietal aromas. Grapes are destemmed and then macerated at 5°C for 4 hours. Fermentation is temperature-controlled 15°C (no malolactic fermentation). Some of the Chardonnay is aged for three months in oak barrels then bottled. Elegantly pale, shimmering, limpid. In this vintage that was wetter than previous years, the aromas remain powerful. We find the same notes of apricot, vine peach and aniseed that are characteristic of our Villa Blanche Chardonnay, with the discreet fragrance of vanilla and coconut in complement. The palate is perfectly balanced, fresh, fruity and dense at the same time, thanks to harvesting in two stages to ensure ideal ripeness, and the important work of blending. Full bodied and harmonious on opening with exotic notes of mango and citrus fruit, and finishing on supremely smooth toasted notes. Try with eggs benedict, steak béarnaise or pumpkin ravioli      
  • In the heart of 200 uninterrupted hectares the Domaine Calmel & Joseph sits in a remarkable geographical position.

  • Back in 1647, Scipione di Marzo, founder of the estate, left San Paolo Belsito to escape the plague that was raging his hometown and found shelter in Tufo. It is said that he brought with him the vines of a variety then called Greco di Nola. After planting it in this new soil, he became the creator of the Greco di Tufo. Since then, the estate has used its own nursery to produce its vines, thus keeping the genetic inheritance practically unchanged since its origins. The di Marzo estate has managed to preserve its historical tradition while using the latest technology. This approach results in a unique quality wines. Straw yellow with golden hues. To the nose it is complex, with a predominance of flint with notes of orange blossom and wild Mediterranean flowers which evolve into more fruity notes with a very discreet trace of eucalyptus. To the mouth it is very fresh, with a clear and pleasant mineral taste. The aftertaste is fruity and slightly flowery, with citrusy notes. It is a wine with a good structure, intense and persistent.

  • She is a woman that leads a double life at top speed: one week on the outskirts of Brussels, the next in Ingrandes-de-Touraine, in the Loire valley, and then back to the fold. Kathleen Van den Berghe, who trained as a construction engineer, dropped her career in business in 2010 to take up wine making. With her husband Sigurd Mareels, she breathed new life into the Château de Minière, which lies in the PDO Bourgueil. Their 18 hectares of vines are all Cabernet Franc. The vineyard has been certified as organic since 2013. This first white wine produced by the Château de Minière is made using Chenin vines from the Château de Suronde, which lies in Anjou and which the couple recently acquired. This transfer deprives it of the PDO, which is why it has the 'Vin de France' designation. Production is limited to 3,000 bottles. Harvested by hand, with grapes sorted on the stocks. Soft pressing, low temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Matured for 4 to 6 months in stainless steel tanks. Straw-coloured robe of medium intensity. Aromas of white flowers and honey.

  • Beaumont is a family owned and managed farm situated in the heart of the town of Bot River in the Overberg.

    The farm, home to the region’s oldest wine cellar, was originally established in the 1700’s by the Dutch East India Company. In the 1940’s the wine business was initially started but wine production was discontinued in the late 1960’s.

    Jayne and Raoul Beaumont bought the farm Compagnes Drift in 1974 and set about replanting the vineyards.  However, the legacy of creating wines in the farm cellar under the family name was only initiated years later.

    Terrific value for a Chenin Blanc of this quality and much of the wine’s panache can be attributed to the dry vintage, which produced tiny berries packed with flavour. It’s wonderfully clean and vibrant, a sense of crystal cut citrus fruit fleshed out with a little fleshy peach and light honey. Yummy with lobster, Thai fishcakes or hot chickpea and tomato salad Vegan
  • In 1973 the first vines where planted when local wine retailer Alan McKechnie started harvesting the vines on his small fruit farm.

It was founded by Giuseppina and Vittorio De Bortoli, who moved from Italy to New South Wales for a better life. Over the years, the brand has earned a reputation for fine wines. Its Deen Vat Series range is a tribute to Vittorio’s son, Deen, who with the support of his wife, Emri, carried forward the family business to new heights using innovation and new technological skills. Gewurztraminer 80%, Riesling 20% The Bilbul winery in Riverina produces not only Willowglen Gewurztraminer Riesling, but also a number of De Bortoli's top end flag-bearers, not least the remarkable Noble One Botrytis Semillon.

Sustainability is high on the winery's agenda, a firm hand being taken to water recycling, vineyard mulching and the control of greenhouse gas emissions, among other initiatives. The parcels of each varietal were chosen with particular characteristics in mind: spicy musk and rose petal flavours for the Gewurztraminer, floral and citrus for the Riesling. The parcels are fermented separately, using particular yeasts with each of them to emphasise their individual traits, with blending, clarification stabilisation and filtration following afterwards. Musk and spice meet on the nose, backed by a hint of citrus, while rosewater and Turkish Delight follow on the generous palate, accompanied by a crisp citrus lift from the Riesling. Good to go with Vietnamese vegetable rolls, tempura, ramen noodles dusted with light sweet spices or just by itself Vegan

  • The Diwald family farm has been a pioneer of organic viticulture in Austria since 1980. Second generation winemaker Martin makes exquisite, small-batch wines. Martin interferes as little as possible in the cellar, deploying intuition, patience, humility, and a top-notch T-shirt collection. One of the stars of Austria’s new generation. A blend (usually made up of 50% Grüner Veltliner, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Weißburgunder) which combines elegance and liveliness. The Burgundian varieties Chardonnay and Weißburgunder play the elegant roles, while Grüner Veltliner portrays the cheeky, playful character. The different grape varieties are hand-picked and spontaneously fermented in separate stainless steel tanks. The Chardonnay and Weißburgunder always go thorough malolactic fermentation, while the Grüner Veltliner sometimes does because the wine matures on its fine lees. Natural and full malolactic fermentation was done. The ChaGrü is always a friendly guy, with some residual sugar and (due to malolactic fermentation) a certain roundness. As a rule, this is an impressively multi-facetted wine which offers a beautiful combination of fruit and spice. On its own or with Thai spice! Vegan
  • This 130-hectare vineyard is located at the foot of the Gascogne Pyrenees and specialises in white varietals. Warm weather during the day and cool nights give ideal conditions to produce fresh, characterful Sauvignon Blanc. Pascal Debon is smitten by Sauvignon Blanc. In Gascony, he discovers the Sauvignon of Domaine de l’Herré with its unique aromas and flavours, coming from the exceptional microclimate. The richness and the potential are here on these fawn sandy soils, on the fringes of the special climatic conditions which come from the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees : they give the vineyard warmth and freshness. At the heart of the Bas Armagnac region, the vineyards of the Domaine de l’Herré are planted on one of the best terroir of the appellation composed mainly of fawn sandy soils (sand, ferrite and clay). At optimum maturity, the grapes are harvested during the coolest hours of the night, inert with nitrogen to protect them from oxidation and then brought directly into the press, where they undergo temperature-controlled skin maceration. This pellicular maceration aims to migrate the aromatic precursors contained in the skins of the grapes to the juices. Thanks to a slow and careful pressing, it is practically only the drippings that will be kept cold until they are fermented. Under the greenish yellow colour, the medium and simple nose evokes fruity, mineral and vegetal notes. On the palate, it offers a slender mouthfeel that leads into a medium finish. Enjoy this dry, light and fruity white featuring lively acidity. Served chilled alongside oysters, green salad or asparagus quiche    

  • When Frenchman François-Eugène Brun laid the foundation stone of Domaine des Tourelles in Chtaura back in 1868, he couldn’t have known that he had just begun to write the story of a marvellous Lebanese wine. Honouring this great heritage of artisan know-how and quality, Domaine des Tourelles produces today the best of wine, arak (its famous label 'Arak Brun') and liqueur. The prestigious Property is classified among the finest boutique wineries of the Middle-East, described in the Financial Times as “the most seductive winery” in Lebanon.

  • Between the coast and countryside, Domaine Les Yeuses was built in the 13th century by the Templars at the site of an ancient Roman villa. During the centuries, the buildings housed a hospital, the First Consul of Mèze during the French Revolution, and then a winemaking cellar. The estate gets its name from a forest of evergreen oak trees (yeuses in the local dialect). Today they have nearly disappeared, replaced by a path of olive trees. The vineyard of Domaine Les Yeuses comprises over 80 hectares (197 acres) of limestone-rich moderate hillsides which enjoy a maritime breeze. This unique location suits a wide variety of grapes. The estate has been in the Dardé family for more than 30 years. Jean-Paul and Michel, brothers, share the vineyard and winemaking responsibilities. The winery is continuously recognized for its wide range of varietal wines; indeed, the geography of the vineyard gives the red, white and rosé wines a lively acidity and distinctive profile. The vineyard of 80 hectares (197 acres) with a view of the Mediterranean is located on limestone-clay sandy soil on low hillsides. The Mediterranean climate accompanies the grape year-round while the proximity to the Sea provides cool temperatures at the end of maturation to maintain the fruit that is characteristic of Southern French wines. Made from Sauvignon Blanc and Vermentino grown on sandy soil. The grapes are harvested at a high maturity in order to preserve the aromatic typicity. After a skin maceration, grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press, and then cold settling of the juice. Fermentation under controlled temperature at 15°C. Ageing in tank during 6 months. Pale with green tints. Elegant nose, very fresh and minty with broom flowers and box tree aromas. The attack is clear with long aromas. Well balanced wine with aromas of white flesh fruit, such as peach. Great with fish tacos with quinoa and black beans, Hawaiian garlic shrimp or vegan 'crab' cakes    
  • Situated in Davayé, at the foot of the rock of Solutré, the Chavet family have 12 hectares under vine, 10 of which are in the appellation of St Véran. The current custodian, Christophe, is the sixth generation of Chavets to manage the Domaine. The vines, which average around 35 years old, are planted on stoney, clay-limestone soils facing south-east to south-west. The planting density is an unusually high 8,000 vines per hectare.
    After picking, a stringent selection and gentle pressing, the wine is simply fermented in cuve at around 18 °C for 6-7 weeks. Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are completed, the wine spends a further 4-5 months in cuve, sur lie, prior to bottling the following spring. The resulting wine is fine, crisp, clean, fresh and minerally with excellent intensity and personality. This is absolutely lovely just by itself served slightly chilled. Or you can grab yourself an anchovy pizza, albacore tuna served on a lemon drizzled green salad or asparagus with morel mushrooms
  • Located over the Bassin of Thau and all along the Via Domitia, the Vineyard was created in 1330. It was the property of a religious order: the Holy-Spirit order. During the religious wars, monks abandoned their properties. Several families took care of the vineyard but its name was given by François Engarran in 1595 when he became the owner. The vineyard then remained in the Engarran family until 1652. In 1966, the Morin family (winegrowers from father to son since 1830) became the vineyard’s owner under Albert Morin’s authority. It is totally under the AOP Picpoul de Pinet. The estate is located on a calcareous plateau covered with very small stones and fine sand. Near the Bassin of Thau, the vines face the Morning sun. The Tramontane, dominant, dry and cold wind blows the clouds and dries out the soils. This lack of water is partially balanced by the sea sprays coming from the Bassin of Thau. Made from Piquepoul grapes grown on clay and limestone soil. Piquepoul is the latest ripening grape of the vineyard. It is harvested at the end of September and even sometimes at the beginning of October. Night harvest in order to preserve aromas and freshness. Immediate pressing and cold settling at a very low temperature. Once fermentation is achieved, the wine is aged on fine lees with regular stirring of the lees in order to bring richness and roundness. Bright and pale yellow wine with very fresh aromas of white flowers, acacia and hawthorn; fresh and saline palate but with a slight roundness for a Picpoul. This wine is a 'gourmet' Picpoul. Good to go with salmon, swordfish, scallops, oysters, clams and rich cream or butter sauces, mahi mahi with mango & avocado salsa salad or a salad topped with strawberries and goat cheese...    
  • The name Fèvre has history in Chablis, Giles has traced his family back to 1745 and during the 19th century an ancestor, Zephyr, already had vines in Vaulorent. The domaine continues to grow and now they have 50ha of vines. Nathalie worked at La Chablisienne, the local and high-quality co-operative until 2004 when Domaine Nathalie & Giles Fèvre was born. They are now joined by their daughter Julie, not yet 30 but already handy in the vineyard and cellar.

    Both winemakers and complementary in the organization of the field, Nathalie and Gilles divide the tasks. Passionate about the work of a winemaker, Gilles takes care of the vines, with the aim of respecting the heritage passed down through the generations. Thus, they work in reasoned production, limiting interventions to the vine to allow the terroirs to express themselves as much as possible.

    One of the possible explanations behind this Climat’s name is quite sinister; 'Fourche' (fork) might refer to a fork in the road or else a gibbet!

    This Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume (one of the most noted Chablis 1ers crus) originates from vineyards situated on long slopes facing the sunrise, allowing rapid soil warm up which aids quality maturing. Chardonnay (planted between 1942 and 1989) Kimmeridgian soil. Vinification and ageing on fine lees during 12 months (minimum) in air-conditioned stainless steel tanks. Measured filtration.

    Chablis is known for its incredible structure and mouth-watering salinity. If you haven't had the pleasure of falling in love with Chablis yet, what are you waiting for?

    The shiny, clear, pale hued Chablis exudes white fruits notes. The swirl reveals more intense and complex aromas, fresh, elegant, as well as a light mineral reduction to tie it all up. The palate is fresh, elegant, and vigorous: great volume, lovely white fruits persistence and delicate vibrant mineral, pure, superb balance.

    Ideal with cooked oysters, and a wonderful accompaniment to the local specialty Jambon au Chablis, curried shrimps or vegetable sushi rolls

       
  • Vintage 2019 Gilles and Nathalie Fèvre met at university where they both qualified as oenologists. Gilles is in charge of viticulture and Nathalie oversees vinification. Gilles’ great grandfather began growing grapes and making wine in and around the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis over a hundred years ago. They have now been joined by their daughter Julie - a qualified agricultural engineer and oenologue in her own right. This is a wonderful 50-hectare domaine, all planted on Kimmeridgian limestone - 33 hectares of which are village Chablis. The name Fèvre has history in Chablis, Giles has traced his family back to 1745 and during the 19th century an ancestor, Zephyr, already had vines in Vaulorent.

They are now joined by their daughter Julie, not yet 30 but already handy in the vineyard and cellar.

    This Chablis comes from parcels situated beside the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis, at the very heart of Chablis’ vineyards, on high plains or steep hills, all their Chablis is grown on stony soils (Kimmeridgian Limestone) which allows for a moderate production. Most of the vineyards are between 15 and 25 years old. Some parcels were planted by Gilles’ great grandfather, Marcel, around 1950/1960.

    Fresh and fruity (white flesh fruits, like peach and pear, with citrus notes), and already showing good minerality.

    It also makes a good partner to traditional Burgundy recipes such as 'jambom persillé' (ham with parsley), and is ideal with a fresh bowl of oysters, crab sandwiches or avocado dip with salty tortillas! Now then!

    Domaine Saladin is located in a small village in the southern Rhone, about halfway between Montelimar and Avignon, on the right bank of the river; in the same family since 1422, it is today run by sisters Elizabeth and Marie-Laurence, with the support of their parents, Louis and Annick Saladin. The sisters strive to create natural wines: their vineyards have always been harvested by hand and cultivated and vinified organically. Their white is a blend of six Rhone varietals, all grown in the same plot; the blend was created by Louis Saladin for his wife, who used to serve the wine at her restaurant, Le Mazet, located right in the vineyards. The wine is from the 2008 vintage and displays pure and classy aromas and flavours of bruised apple, ripe pear and assorted stone fruits with a toffee apple edge that gives weight to the body and is run through by crystalline acidity. Go for roast chicken (or Quorn!) in cream with almonds and don't forget to load on the veg!

    Owned and operated by Englishman Jonathan Hesford and his Kiwi wife, Rachel Treloar. Rachel's Maori and Cornish ancestry is reflected in their logo.

    On 11 September 2001, they were living one block away from the World Trade Center. After seeing both planes crash into the buildings from a few hundred metres, they left their apartment with what they could carry. In the aftermath of that disaster, they lost their home, jobs and their right to live in the States.

    The experience made them think about what really mattered in their life. They wanted a different environment for their children. They wanted to have more control over their direction and to spend our time working at something that truly motivates them. Enter wine...

    This wine is named after Bruce Springsteen’s song 'The Promised Land', which brings together two concepts which shaped Domaine Treloar. That there is an ideal place for each person and that you will only achieve your dreams through hard work and determination.

    A dry white wine made from Grenache gris 50%, Macabeu 30% and Carignan blanc 20%. Fermented in barrel with wild yeasts to give complexity.

    The nose is subtle with hints of pears and river stones.  The complex layers of flavours only appear after several seconds in the mouth. (It is not a quaffer!). Quince, wax and a smoky minerality. Serve only lightly chilled. Improves with a little aeration and decanting.

    Jon and Rachel love it with grilled fish, such as Bream or Bass. Also works with delicate pasta dishes with both creamy and tomato sauces and is excellent with Bouillabaisse and similar seafood stews - even Moules Mariniere. The greatest pairing they have experienced was a local delicacy called Carn de Parol with balsamic vinegar and truffle oil - go find!

    Family owned. Don Cristobal began its production of wines with the 2001 harvest and entered that same year in the world wine market with its brand Cristóbal 1492 'Wines of the New World for the Entire World'. The new world wine began its history when Christopher Columbus discovered the American continent in 1492. An attractive nose of exotic fruits is followed on the palate by more peachy fruit. The palate is fresh and clean with generosity, the finish long and fine. Absolutely lovely by itself or with nibbles

  • El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from modest beginnings into one of the best known Rioja producers. Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental. They also source grapes from all three areas, but mostly from Rioja Alavesa. Head winemaker César Fernandez oversees production, starting with hand picking into 350 kilogram crates to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Modern and intelligently designed, the emphasis in the winery is on temperature control and gentle handling of the grapes. The Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were sourced from the high-altitude vineyards in Rioja Oriental, vineyards are situated over 840 metres above sea level. The Viura grapes were mainly sourced from Rioja Alta, from limestone and clay soils. Viura dominant with a small percentage of Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc 12% abv The grapes were instantly chilled upon arrival at the winery and then pressed using a pneumatic press. The grapes were then fermented at 14-18ºC in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 12-20 days, to preserve aromas and retain freshness. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place and the wine was bottled without ageing to maximise freshness and crisp acidity. This wine is pale lemon in colour with aromas of peaches, apples, citrus and tropical fruits. On the palate, it has lively acidity leading to a dry, fruity finish.

The grapes for the Verdejo are sourced from El Coto's Finca Carbonera estate, which reaches 850 metres above sea level, making it the highest vineyard in Rioja and ideal for the new white grape varieties approved by the Rioja Regulatory Board. A wide diurnal range aids the slow steady ripening of the grapes, ensuring they retain fresh acidity and perfumed aromatics. Half of the must was cold soaked, while the other half was pressed directly under inert gas. Fermentation took place at 16ºC in stainless steel tanks in order to retain freshness. Once alcoholic fermentation had finished, the wine remained on its lees for one month to enhance the wine's texture. This wine is pale lemon in colour with golden highlights. It has intense aromas of fresh citrus fruits and white peach alongside floral notes. On the palate, it is smooth with a lively acidity and a refreshing, elegant finish. Try with with fish tacos, salads with sharp vinaigrette dressings, shrimp, scampi, gazpacho, tomato soup, tapas, seafood pasta or simple omelettes    
  • Arnold Holzer's classic and very fruity style of Grüner Veltliner from the loess soils of Wagram in Austria. Holzer took over the estate in 2010, aged just 23. His vineyards are dotted around Grossriedenthal in the heart of Wagram and benefit from the löss (clay) soils that lend a pronounced fruit-rich quality to all of his wines. The grapes come from a mixture of the Eschenhof Holzer family vineyards and some from neighbouring friends in Grossreidenthal. Fuller and fruitier style of Grüner Veltliner, with big flavours of green apples, peach, grapefruit and spice. Pairs beautifully with spicy Thai green curry with tofu, wiener schnitzel, fava beans and crispy kale, wafer thin smoked ham, asparagus quiche or seafood salads or mild sheep's milk cheese. Vegan
  • Fairview is situated on the lower slopes of Mount Paarl, which is more sheltered from the moderating maritime influence than nearby Stellenbosch. Vines were planted here as early as 1699. The property was bought by the grandfather of current owner Charles Back in 1937. Fairview has a reputation for consistent quality across a range of innovative styles, using both classic and unusual varieties, and leads the field in South Africa in matching varieties to specific sites. The Fairview estate now has a total of 680 hectares of vineyard over four appellations: Paarl (350 hectares), Swartland (155 hectares), Darling (140 hectares) and Stellenbosch (35 hectares). This vineyard ownership in so many different regions allows Charles to produce a wide range of wines, from grapes grown in optimal conditions. In 2014, Charles received a lifetime achievement award from the International Wine Challenge. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are sourced from unirrigated vineyards in Darling. The vines are trellised and planted on deep red oakleaf soils. The grapes were machine harvested from very early in the morning, arriving at the cellar before sunrise. Whole berries were put into the press, after which the juice settled for 48 hours and was fermented in stainless-steel tanks. The wine was left on its fine lees after fermentation, prior to blending and bottling. This wine is pale yellow with youthful highlights. It has intense aromas of tropical fruits particularly passionfruit and pineapple. Fresh citrus flavours with lime undertones and a subtle minerality contribute to the wine's generous mid-palate and clean, crisp finish. Give it a blast with Salmon tartare with sesame-crusted warm oyster, chilled potato, leek cream, ginger soy dressing or  salads with goats cheese and feta, asparagus, avocado or grilled red peppers, fresh tomato salads or salads with fennel, mango or papaya!
