Lamblin Petit Chablis, Burgundy, France
Balanced, lively & light on the palate with a good attack that continues with a pleasant roundness. “the flattering nose combines dried fruit & fresh almond.” (Guide Hachette)
Martín Códax Burgans Albariño, Rias Baixas, Spain
“91/100. Smoky peach and pear aromas are brightened by dusty minerals and lemon pith. Deep, expansive tangerine, nectarine and poached pear flavours are nicely lifted by white pepper.” (Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar)
Hunter’s Riesling, Marlborough, New Zealand
“Rating: Very good to excellent. Fruit sherbet and sour tangy notes lead the nose, moving into a citrus and stonefruit spectrum. This moves across the citrus fruits, at times lemon, other orange, then lime, with that backbone of fruit sherbet. A real, zesty zing to this sporting lovely brightness and freshness.” (Mark Henderson, Otago Daily Times)

High aromatic intensity with raspberries, red cherries, wild strawberries & red currants set against a balsamic background of vanilla, toasted caramel, biscuits, coffee & sweet mints. A DWS favourite!
