2018 Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of Eden Riesling



Price: $22.25       Your Price: $19.58



 



Flashes of yellow, gold, and green. Subtle hues yet hints of brilliance. A panoply of citrus combined with polished steel leads an aromatic charge directly to your olfactory bulb. Who needs smelling salts when you can raise such a glass of riesling. Behind the heightened aromaticity hides some plaintive notes of fruits tropical and exotic. Texture and weight - or its effortless weightlessness - is the first impression. Mineral water ‘non-gas’, mineral salts, talcum, and an attenuated austerity. Yet from the mid-palate comes a roundness and richness of riesling fruit, in a tiny cluster of quantum power. Sharp and righteous acidity arrives at the back palate to sweep all before and away, as if a tide taken at the height.



This white wine’s purity and acidity and citrus personality waits for elaborate and yet simple, honorific fish dishes. Nori roll with salmon, sashimi, the world’s simplest and freshest rice paper roll; an oyster just before the Vernal Equinox; a prawn boiled for one minute in sea water… Or alone in a glass with a view of the Sea.



 



2019 Craven Wines "Karibib Vineyard" Chenin Blanc



Price: $31.50       Your Price: $27.72



 



Chenin Blanc is a variety that Mick has always wanted to work with but was waiting for the right vineyard to land in his lap. Towards the end of 2015, Mick came across a beautiful site up on the Polkadraai Hills. The terroir in this unique pocket is characterized by hilly topography and subsequently varying elevations, providing sites on elevations from 60 to 400 meters above sea level. Besides the differences in elevation, the layered soils vary from granite-based on the higher elevations to the more lighter, sandy soils in lower lying areas. Planted in 1982, this east-facing block is grown on lovely, weathered granite soil. Initially trained on a single wire, it has been 'let go' over time and now grows more like a bushvine. Mick refers to it as a "faux bush vine" vineyard. All in all, this was the perfect site in Mick's eyes.



The grapes are whole-bunch pressed to 500L barrels, where the juice is left to ferment naturally. The wine completes malolactic fermentation and stabilizes itself, and is then left on the lees for approximately 4 months before its first racking. It spends a total of 9 months in barrel before bottling. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered, with nothing added during the winemaking process apart from a dash of sulphur.



 



2016 Auntsfield Estate Pinot Noir Single Vineyard Marlborough



Price: $40.00       Your Price: $35.20



 



WINEMAKER NOTES: This wine was made with a minimalist philosophy, designed to enable the characteristics of the grapes and the vineyard to be revealed. The fruit was hand-harvested, hand-sorted, gently destemmed and gravity-fed to tank. Fermented with a combination of indigenous and cultured yeasts, careful hand plunging was utilised to gently extract flavours and tannins from the skins. Maturation occurred in French oak barriques for approximately 10 months.



 



2016 Ellena Giuseppe Barolo del comune di La Morra



Price: $42.00       Your Price: $36.96



 



(92 Points) "Here's a great value for Nebbiolo watchers. The Ellena Giuseppe 2016 Barolo del Comune di La Morra shows the precision and focus of the vintage with soft tannins, bright fruit flavors and balanced acidity. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry, cassis, tilled earth and blue flower. Skin maceration times are long, at up to 60 days in stainless steel, and the wine completes its final 24 months of aging in both barrique and botte. This Barolo represents a blend of fruit from the Ascheri cru and other sites in La Morra. Some 13,000 bottles (approx 1,000 cases) were released." Wine Advocate
