2016 BK Wines Inox Pinot Grigio

$7.50
$34.00

Pinot Grigio – as opposed to her twin sister, Pinot Gris – is intended to be linear and citric.

This year’s BK offering is indeed that, bearing striking structural resemblance to gin & tonic with lime. Licorice root, quinine and lemon pith notes give this wine a refreshing, aperitif tang. However, hints of the Pinot Gris sibling are readily apparent with complexing layers of Scottish shortbread, sandalwood and pear Danish on the nose and palate. And here’s a fun alchemy experiment you can try safely at home: leave this wine open for 24 hours and she’ll magically transform to become her sister’s soft-tempered doppelganger.

2016 Shaw And Smith Sauvignon Blanc

$40.00

Tony Love - Herald Sun - September 2016

"With the 27th release of this benchmark Hills (and Australian) sauvignon blanc, the crew behind it believes it’s in the top handful of the best. The 2016 vintage has delivered a fabulous citrus zest to more varietally familiar (in this case, well-tempered) tropical fruit salad with passionfruit notes. The palate zings with pure squeezed lemon and grapefruit juices, and the finish is textured and salivating." 

The 2016 vintage is precisely to style: distinct pink grapefruit, mid-palate weight and textural interest, held by fine acidity.

2015 Ochota Barrels 'Weird Berries in the Woods' Gewurztraminer

$49.00

The variety has high natural sugar and the wines are white and usually off-dry, with a flamboyant bouquet of lychees. Indeed, Gewürztraminer and lychees share the same aroma compounds.[1] Dry Gewürztraminers may also have aromas of roses, passion fruit and floral notes. It is not uncommon to notice some spritz (fine bubbles on the inside of the glass). Wikipedia

Wheaty White

$6.50
$25.00

Citrus and passionfruit nose with white stone fruit and a delightful light creaminess with the palate fresh and enticing on entry with citrus and light tropical notes. Mid palate shows wonderful depth of flavour from partial barrel fermentation in French Barriques. Finishing with great length and crisp acidity.

The intention with Minnow Creek is to maintain the goal of sourcing the best parcels of fruit in order to craft wines which continue to reflect the full flavoured generosity for which McLaren Vale is justifiably renowned.

Small scale winemaking allows Minnow Creek to assert complete control over the winemaking process from picking through to bottling, in order to provide Minnow Creek customers with the truest expression of the Vales regional flavours.

2013 Domaine Langois Château Saumur Chenin Blanc

$36.00

Light yellow colour, intense nose,with aromas of white flowers and exotic fruit. Sharp at first, fruity and full-bodied on the palette with a citrus fruit finish. Bron and St-Florent region.

Born in 1873 in a rural family in the Saumur region, Edouard Langlois was a winemaker and a cellarman at St-Hilaire-St-Florent. He was 23 years old when he married 19-year-old Jeanne Chateau, whose family came from Vendée

On August 1, 1912, the couple founded the family company Maison Langlois-Chateau at St-Hilaire-St-Florent, with the help of Baron de Bodman, owner of Château de St-Florent and the adjoining vineyard; the Baron would thus bring cellars, land, and buildings to the young firm which, also, bought the business of the former Maison Delandes, founded in 1885.

Langlois-Chateau specialized immediately in the production of “sparkling wines”. Business started off weell, but was interrupted by World War I during which Edouard Langlois was killed on March 31, 1915. He was 42 years old and had been awarded the Croix de Guerre (Military Cross).

His young widow took over the management of the business, later aided by her son-in-law, Maurice Leroux and her son, Alexis.

In 1973, Maison Bollinger, a family enterprise at Aÿ-Champagne, recognized the quality of Langlois-Chateau wines and acquired majority ownership, thus contributing its financial resources as well as its agencies in France and abroad. Michel Villedey, a son-in-law of the Bollinger family and also from Saumur, became president of the firm, assisted by Jean Leroux, son of Maurice

2010 Xanadu Reserve Chardonnay

$90.00

John and Eithne Lagan arrived at Margaret River in 1968, first planting their vineyard in 1977. The Lagans planted the first vines in what is now one of the region’s oldest vineyards. They named their vineyard Xanadu after the poem Kubla Khan by the romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Xanadu Wines was purchased of by the Rathbone family in 2005.
 
100% of the fruit for this Reserve Chardonnay is from their oldest Chardonnay vineyard, the Lagan Estate. The vineyard produces bunches with characteristic ‘hen and chicken’ architecture typical of the Gin Gin clone. The small berries and tiny bunches from these mature, low yielding vines contributes to the intensity of the wine. Natural fermentation is encouraged on fruit from this vineyard to further emphasize the personality of this site which is directly adjacent to the winery.
