  • Domaine Métairie d’Alon “Le Village” Chardonnay

    Organically grown and produced by a Burgundian in Limoux. The grapes are hand picked and the juice fermented in small stainless steel vats with long lees aging. A tiny part of the blend was fermented in oak to add nuance, but you don’t get any sort of big oak flavours here, more of a Chablis style.

  • Giravolta Primitivo di Manduria

    Based on the huge popularity of “Fellone” I thought we should have a closer look at the Primitivo grape. Here’s one of four more, each with a distinct “terroir”. What’s the Italian for “terroir”, I wonder? This one  is distinctive due to the calcareous white soil of the vineyards. Aged for nine months in French oak.

  • “Zinfandel” Primitivo di Manduria from Felline

    With the huge success of Fellone, I decided that Primitivo needed a closer inspection, so here’s one of four new ones, all from Felline down in the south of Italy.This one is a slight variation, being styled “Zinfandel Californiano”. That’s what they call it over there but is a strain of Primitivo all the same. Terroir is Mandurian black soil and the 15% wine was aged for six months in French and American oak.

    Another smart red from the Estate. Try this varietal which is a minor one in Bordeaux, more common in the Loire, but great here in South Africa.

  • Abbotts & Delaunay “Cumulo Nimbus” Minervois

    A blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache which really showcases one of the Languedoc’s fine range of regional appellations. 40% of the handpicked grapes are aged in oak following fermentation. The result is a fat, structured red but it’s not “in your face” it’s really very nicely balanced.

  • Domaine de la Pigeade Muscat de Beaumes de Venise

    The southern Rhone is probably best known for its reds such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas …..and Vacqueyras. But they also make one of the best dessert wines around and here’s a pretty smart one! Deliciously grapey, fleshy, fragrant Muscat grapes have the fermentation stopped by the addition of alcohol leaving the wine naturally sweet.  The Domaine recommends it be drunk very cold not only as a dessert wine with, say, chocolate fondant but also with blue cheese or even with foie gras  to start with.
