Carneiro Estate “Luz” Vinho Verde
A lovely new wine just arrived in. Christiana only makes two wines – there’s specialisation for you. Both are Vinho Verde and this is the classic one. Made from a blend of Azal and Loureiro grapes ( who ever heard of those?) this is light and refreshing. Fruity with a hint of bitterness. A still wine but with a zing of natural spritz which characterizes a good Vinho Verde. This spritz does dissipate after a while, though. Great summer wine.White BlendsCrisp & Refreshing WhitesUnoaked WhitesPortugal2022750 ml11%-12.5%13-13.5%

Blanquette de Limoux Domaine Rosier- One of our 12 Wines of Christmas
My favourite Blanquette de Limoux from over 200 tasted at the Vinisud Trade Wine Fair a couple of years back. Blanquette de Limoux differs from Cremant basically in the grapes used; in this case Mauzac and Chardonnay.It has been lees aged for 12 months and is a lovely clean, creamy style. The Rosier family is rightly proud of this, their top cuvee.White BlendsSparklingFrance750 ml11%-12.5%

Brunelli Bianco di Custoza
Voted in both “money no object” and “best value for money” top 5 by our Virtual Tasters last summer.
Bianco di Custoza has long been one of my favourite white Italian wines. Situated on the sunny shores of Lake Garda it is a blend of Trebbiano, Garganega, Cortese, Riesling and Malvasia grapes. The resultant wine is soft and creamy with a lingering minerally finish. Yummy!White BlendsDry & Soft WhitesItaly2021750 ml11%-12.5%

White Rioja “Florentius”
Those lovely people from Florentino Martinez produce one of our best-selling wines – their dry, unoaked white. Whist on our most recent visit I also tried this off-dry wine for the first time and really liked it. It’s a floral style (think dry muscat). Drink chilled on its own or with a nice spicy Thai Curry!
Oh, and it was voted Best White Wine in the Rioja Cosecheros AwardsWhite BlendsSpain2022750 ml13-13.5%Vegan

Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ White organic
This wine was the very first one we had recommended in the national press when we started the business back in 2006.
The new 2021 vintage is arguably even better, I love it. Think creamy rich white Cotes du Rhone. Three months in barrel just to soften it out a bit and give a rich, soft nicely balanced white wine that will go really well with your Sunday roast.
Recommended by Jancis Robinson: “Lots of interest here.”
Previous vintages RECOMMENDED IN THE OBSERVER. The 2009 vintage displays a beautiful balance and is as good a white from the south of France as you will see anywhere. 50% of the blend is barrel-fermented Roussanne; the rest is unoaked Grenache Blanc and Rolle. It is a rich wine with an excellent balance of oak and will be perfect with your Sunday roast.White BlendsOakey WhitesFrance2021750 ml13-13.5%Organic

ORANGE WINE “Spectaculaire” by Jeff Carell
Is it a pink, is it a red, is it a white? What’s the story with “Orange” wines? Well, this one does what it says on the tin, as they say. “Vin Blanc de Maceration”, Basically it’s a white wine but fermented on the skins as you would with a red wine. Hence the name; it falls between two stools. It looks oxidised, but it isn’t. It’s fresh with floral notes coming from the Muscat grape which forms 50% of the blend (along with that well-known Sorelli (!)) and has tannins.
It will keep a few days after opening, a bit like a Sherry would.
One of the two best such wines I tasted at the Paris Wine Trade Show in February 2023.
