Wines included in a case
Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2018
The pale lemon is the first indication of a classical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. On the nose are intense aromas of fresh cut grass, nettles, grapefruit and herbs married with a mineral note. The palate explodes with racy acidity that is fresh and shows the clean fruit and notes of citrus and minerality that is so typical of the area. The finish is medium and the mouth feel is cleansing and very refreshing.
Perfect food matches would include Tuna, shellfish, summer salad or frittata. Alternatively, it makes an excellent and refreshing aperitif.
Whitehaven’s philosophy on winemaking is quality first and foremost. They look for consistency, intensity and quality while at the same time ensuring elegance in all of their wines. Using a mix of Old World knowledge and New World techniques, Whitehaven developed a reputation based on consistently producing high quality and interesting wines.
For this Sauvignon Blanc the machine harvested fruit was harvested in the evening when the temperature was cooler and immediately pressed to ensure minimum skin contact. This was to retain as much of the varietal characteristics as possible. Fermentation was carried out at low temperatures and in stainless steel.
Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay 2018
Known for their astounding Burgundy-style Chardonnays, Kumeu River is a family-run winery located just to the north of Auckland. The estate’s evocative story began back in 1937 when founders Mick and Katé Brajkovich moved half-way across the world from their native Croatia to New Zealand. They brought with them a deep love and knowledge of winemaking which drove them to work long hours for local wine producers until they were finally able to afford to buy their own winery.
Today Kumeu River is in the capable hands of the third generation of Brajkovichs who focus on making exquisite Chardonnays that display the elegance, finesse and ageing capabilities typically associated with white Burgundy. This single vineyard bottling takes its name from the Coddington family who supply the grapes for this wine. Tim and Angela Coddington have been working with the Brajkovich family since 1998 and carefully hand harvest all of the grapes destined for this Chardonnay.
Following the harvest the wine is fermented in the barrel and then matured in oak for 11 months. This creates a rich, creamy Chardonnay with deliciously fragrant and citrusy aromas which lead on to ripe peach, pineapple and hints of vanilla on the palate. Ideal to drink now alongside fish or chicken dishes, the Coddington Chardonnay will continue to age and develop in the bottle if cellared over the next decade or so.
Marcel Deiss Riesling 2017
Located in the charming village of Bergheim in the heart of Alsace, Domaine Marcel Deiss is responsible for some of the region’s most exciting and innovative bottlings. The Deiss family have been making wine in Bergheim since at least as far back as 1744 and today Marcel’s grandson Jean Michel works 26 hectares of prime hillside vineyards in 9 different communes.
Growing conditions can vary intensely in Alsace due to the variable weather patterns from year to year and the variety of terroirs. Jean Michel seeks to work with nature in his winemaking through organic viticulture and a light touch in the winery which allows the unique character of each vintage and vineyard to shine through in his unique wines.
Jean Michel’s Riesling is a laser-focused, pure expression of the variety which opens with crisp citrus fruit, white peach and tropical fruit. On the palate there’s a steely minerality and bright streak of acidity along with hints of ripe stone fruit and lemon zest. The brightness and mouthwatering freshness make this a great aperitif or partner to seafood, delicately-flavoured pan-fried white fish, or spicy Asian curries, salads, and aromatic noodle dishes like Pad Thai.
Terras Gauda Abadia San Campio 2018
This sensational single varietal Albarino offers an intensely aromatic nose with hints of green apple, banana, lime and delicate orange blossom. On the palate you’ll immediately notice the lively acidity which is carefully balanced by ripe peach and pineapple flavours and a smooth mouthfeel. The freshness and citrus hints make this an excellent accompaniment for seafood and shellfish like oysters, clams, and cockles as well as pan-fried fish. It is also a perfect partner for aromatic Asian dishes like Thai curries or Pad Thai.
Bodegas Terras Gauda has been making crisp white wines from indigenous varieties in the Rias Baixas wine region of Galicia since 1990. The grapes for this wine are harvested at optimum ripeness from the estate’s higher vineyards which helps to preserve freshness in the grapes. The grapes are carefully harvested by hand and transported in small crates to ensure they arrive at the winery in the best possible condition.
The grapes are macerated for just 6 hours followed by a traditional-style fermentation at low temperature in stainless steel tanks. The estate uses wild yeasts that are naturally found in the vineyard for the fermentation to add a unique personality to each vintage.
Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio 2019
The Livio Felluga estate is blessed with both a remarkable history and incredible wines. The family has been making wine for five generations, first in Istria and then after the turmoil of the First World War in nearby Friuli in Italy. Livio Felluga, whose name the estate bears, moved to the region in the 1930s only to be dragged away when he was called up and drafted into the army in the Second World War. It wasn’t until the 1950s that Livio was able to return to his dreams of making wine and purchased the first few acres of the estate.
Today the family work around 135 hectares of hillside vineyards which produce sensational fresh and perfumed white wines like this Pinot Grigio. Conditions on the hills are ideal for Pinot Grigio since the cooler nights help to preserve acidity in the grapes and create delicate aromatics in the finished wine. To showcase the pure character of the Pinot Grigio the family ferments the grapes in stainless steel tanks and then ages the wine on the lees for six months to give a rounded texture and additional complexity.
The nose is led by succulent aromas of melon, ripe pear and grapefruit while the palate offers a vibrant acidity, light body and rich brioche and honey flavours. There are also subtle hints of minerality which make this an excellent match for oysters.
