Connoisseur's Collection White July 2019

Recommendations

A range of 12 different tasty white wines, spanning a whole buffet of varieties - including Chardonnay, Semillon and Riesling.


x2 Terraced Hills Chardonnay 2018: Aromatic stone fruits, pineapple and white blossom flowers, supported by subtle underlying tannin from the French oak. Fine creamy texture with fresh cut pineapple, and white peach with excellent roundness from extended lees contact while finishing beautifully balanced with pure acid and a savoury palate of deliciousness.


x2 Fontanafredda Briccotondo Arneis 2017: A lovely lifted and aromatic wine showing ripe pear and golden delicious apple with clove and little pepper spice. A fresh fragrant wine that is both mouth-filling in intensity and fresh. Fine natural acidity pulls the wine long in the finish and makes it a wonderful partner to many cuisines.


x2 Tyrrell's Special Release Gewurztraminer 2018: Want more spice in your drinking life? Love a little florals? Want white wine with spice and spunk? Then this Gewurz is a friend. Lobbing up the classic musk and rose water aromatics with a palate that is so juicy and plump, with a finish crisper than you'd think.


x2 Even Keel Pinot Gris 2017: From Sam Coverdale's ever-growing Polperro/Even Keel Mornington winery comes a delicious textural Gris that nails the brief for generosity and flavour. Pear, apple and some vanilla bean here, then a lovely round and plump palate. Palate weight is the tool here, and drinkability is the winner!


x2 Framingham Estate Classic Riesling 2017: Easily the best Riesling producer in Marlborough, Framingham makes absolute stunning wines, with this white the quintessential wine in the range. An off-dry Riesling with a beautiful mix of sweetness and acidity, and certified organic to boot. This wonderful aperitif style has wild raspberry and orange citrus fruit flavours, and a lower alcohol content.


x2 Mount Pleasant Single Vineyard Semillon 2015: The site of the Lovedale Vineyard was selected in 1939 by legendary Mount Pleasant founder and winemaker, the late Maurice O’Shea. The vineyard was planted after World War II, in 1946, and the first Mount Pleasant Lovedale Semillon was made in 1950. This classic white wine comes off these hallowed vines and is made in a very traditional style, with low alcohol, a very crisp and restrained palate and the structure to live for decades
