2 bottles each of:
Plaimont Les Vignes Retrouvées, France
“This producer has a well-deserved reputation for preserving rare vines varieties. In this case, the Petit Courbu and the even rarer Arrufiac are blended with the more familiar Gros Manseng…dry wine although the perfumed acidity & the crisp clean pear & apricot flavors give it a soft, ripe character.” (Wine Enthusiast)
Martín Códax Mara Martín Godello, Spain
From the ‘denominación’ of Monterrei (Galicia). Like a riper Albariño with aromas of hay, apple & pear, hints of wild flowers & lime citrus. Intense & upfront palate, with an attractive depth & structure that derives from lees contact. Long, persistent finish.
Esporão Monte Velho Branco, Portugal
Delicate fresh white stone fruits and lemon notes, It is well balanced with a long aromatic finish.
“has the warmth of the Alentejo coupled with a tangy, fresh slice of lemon.” (Wine Enthusiast)
MAN Family Wines Chenin Blanc, South Africa
“well balanced with light honeyed notes, a touch of orange rind & dried mango towards the second half with decent weight & length. I have a lot of time for Man Family Wines.” (Parker’s Wine Advocate)
Terra Firma Catarratto, Italy
Production overseen by Master Of Wine, Michael Palij. Catarratto is a bright, zesty white with delicate, peachy fruit. It does everything that Pinot Grigio can do but with considerably more charisma!
