Du Plevaux Elizabeth Alberta Chenin Blanc/Viognier South Africa – SORRY, OUT OF STOCK
Gold medal at 2018 Vitis Vinifera Awards. Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s “work-horse” white providing the bulk of many cheaper blends. However, there is a Chenin Blanc Society of winemakers dedicated to demonstrating just how good it can be when you put your mind, energy and application to it. Here’s one of those – rich, complex, minerally and with a hint of Viognier to round it off, it’s a delight. Eat with even quite rich foods or on its own.White BlendsRich WhitesSouth Africa2018750 ml13-13.5%
Château d’Or et de Gueules “Mon fut c’est du poulet?”
Diane’s husband, Matthieu, demonstrates both his fine winemaking skills as well as his sense of humour with this wine. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin;
Matthieu devised a special cuvee, just one barrel, to mark the birth of his baby five years ago. Whist he was away on business one day, Diane unwittingly blended the barrel together with others destined to be the Trassegum Red final blend.
“Your’e kidding me?!!” said Matthieu on learning his barrel was gone. Translated from “Mon cul, c’est du poulet?” in French. In order not to offend sensitivities he replaced the vulgar “cul” (arse) with “fut” (barrel), and so the fith vintage of this birthday wine is Matthieu’s finest so far in his opinion. Lovely sort, round, fleshy Syrah with easy oak undertones.Shiraz/SyrahBig & Robust RedsFrance2016750 ml13-13.5%

“The Inspector General” from The Treaty Port Estate China
From a vineyard established in 2005 on the Shandong peninsula by Chris Ruffle comes this classic Bordeaux blend, aged in french oak barrels and displaying ripe, dark fruits and a hint of vanilla oak. No surprise that Chateau Lafite chose to make their first Chinese wine, Long Dai 2017, from neigbouring fields! Chris’s vines are older, of course, and 2014 was an excellent vintage.
