Cayega Roero Arneis, Tenuta Carretta 2015

You’ll need one bottle to drink while you’re cooking and another with your food, this is so thirst quenching. There is something about the flavour of Roero Arneis, a white grape from Piemonte, that is very appealing but can be elusive. It’s a wine that can be bland and expensive, but get it right and the flavour and fruit is sufficient to be perfect with fish dishes and it does not overwhelm. Add a sprig of parsley to your dish and it positively sings.

A A Badenhorst Papegaai White Blend 2017

Grown up doesn't mean boring! The 2017 rendition of our favourite Papegaai has more depth and layers - a crunchy poached and dried pear, quince, and lemon biscuit number. For those not familiar with bushvine Palomino (and when it's not made in to sherry,) it offers stunning subtle aromas of salted green apples - very fine and nuanced.

Alphabetical White Vin Ordinaire 2016

The 2016 vintage of the Alphabetical white is a Roussane led little number, and what a fun wine it is. Ripe apricots, canteloupe melon, a stony palate and an elderflower driven acidity that makes it lively on the finish, fresh, and very very sippable.

Hungary's sweet Tokaji may be what put it on the map, but their dry whites are well worth a look in as well. A fiendish Furmint blend with tangy fruit and a rich, mellow palate.

Although drinking beautifully at present, with a complex array of tropical fruit, grapefruit and limes on the palate, do try to exercise patience, as it will only improve in the next 3-5 years! The palate is focused and racy, made in a style to be a wonderful food companion.

Blank Bottle Dok, Elgin 2014

A blend of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon from Elgin. Like all of Pieter’s wines, it holds quite a story. After the annual vintners surf classic competition, winemaker Pieter shared a bottle of wine with a fellow surfer/farmer – Dok Gary Van Wyk, owner of the vines from where the grapes came from. Pieter so loved it, he started making wine from the same vines and named the wine after the farmer. The three vineyards are small and grow on top of a mountainous outcrop in red rocky clay soil. This white blend represents the stony crags of valley road. Lively and inviting blend – dried tropical fruits, tangerine and warm spice. Full bodied but retains excellent acidity, with a real fresh feel.

The Great SA Wine Co Great White 2015

Lemongrass, grapefruits, white lillies, hints of honey and white peach notes. The acidity is long and fine, giving a refreshing length to the wine. Barrel ferment Sauvignon has such a charm to it, and the Semillon is just beginning to assert itself. Beautifully composed with a generous and ambrosial palate.

Bourgogne Blanc Domaine Thibert et Fils 2014

From the winner of the best young winemaker in Burgundy. “A treasure trove”… ‘Readers disowning white Burgundy because of prices…should really stock up on these wines” Neal Martin. Peaches and cream with a hint of nutmeg and orange flower water. Soft; gentle; inviting. The palate is a joyous mix of generous ripe, fleshy, white fruits – peach and nectarine, with hints of spice and Chantilly cream, all held tight with a perfectly balanced lemon sorbet acidity, that grips and checks that fleshiness, providing a racy, mineral freshness. It’s a beautifully poised Burgundy. Perfect for a lobster, scallops, roast chicken… or just sitting in the sun on with a bottle and good friends. 13% drink now – 2018

Tokaji Szamorodni Karadi-Berger 2010 Dry (50cl)

Il Famoso Grottino Marche Bianco, Bruscia 2015

The Il Famoso grape is (ironically) rather rare. There are only around 12 hectares of the vine were known about in Emilia-Romagna, and another four in the Marches, planted by Bruscia. Stylistically the wine has similarities to Greco di Tufo and Viognier, although not as floral.

Blank Bottle Kortpad Kaaptoe, Swartland 2016

Smells like luscious turkish delight and crystallised pineapple bashed with quartzy stones. Tangerine fruited with juicy white peaches, honey blossom, with a lifted spiced finish reminiscent of the steep hillsides of Condrieu. Though not, it's not Viognier. 100% Fernao Pires from one 51 year old vineyard planted in sandy soils on the Darling side of the Swartland.

A touch more tightly woven than the '13 at present, but pure class. Great purity of fruit, apple, pear and sweet citrus. There’s a hint of honeysuckle and ripe segments of tangerine The racy acidity lifts the palate beautifully – lightening the many textures and enhancing the freshness of the wine.

For the moment, this is a one off production, as Pieter is unsure whether he is going to be able to get hold of the grapes again. With such balance of white peaches, almond blossom, lemon curd and cob nuts, we highly recommend you to indulge right now - a stunning new wine to the collection.

Sentits Blancs Bodegas Puiggros 2014

SWiG Note: Honeysuckle, lemon pith, and clotted cream on the nose, with just a hint of struck match. There's orange flower water there too. This is definitely a "shove your nose in there a bunch of times because it'll be different with every sniff" sort of wine. The palate is a great combination of power and subtle nuance. There are some big flavours there - ripe tropical fruit notes, creamy touches, textured oak, but also lighter floral edges and gentle spice as well. This is quite awesome right now - a stonking mouth full of wine - but with age it will mellow a bit. Delicious now, but worth sticking down if you've got the patience. 13.5% Drink now - 2020

Palpite Branco Reserva Fitapreta, Alentejano 2015

Grapes 58% Arinto, 24% Verdelho, 18% Antão Vaz. Only 300 cases produced The aroma makes you think of top white Burgundy; it’s incredibly good with mineral purity and a wonderful top note. THere is also an intriguing exotic aroma; char-grilled pineapple, roasted peaches and fresh lemon lead with a chorus of vanilla, spice and melting butter. The palate continues this tune with bright acidity, but tasty like a cox’s apple balancing the clotted cream and beurre noisette from the very well-judged oak.

Jarret de Montchenin Chateau de Passavant, Anjou 2014

I made a remarkable discovery today. It seems that Chenin Blanc isn't just made from ancient dryfarmed bush vines on the decomposed granite soils of the Swartland. No. Apparently it's also made in a place called the 'Loire' in France. Damn silly name, that. Can't see it catching on. Leave it to the experts on the African continent, I say. Okay, there may be a light dusting of irony in the above, but it illustrates a point: there's so much excitement about the Chenins being produced by South Africa's 'new wave' (a wave we continue to ride quite happily, thanks), that people seem to have forgotten all about the Loire and its wonderful heritage with Chenin Blanc - aka Pineau de la Loire. We felt it was high time we showed the region some love and went straight for the motherlode: a special cuvée, made only in the best vintages, from one of Anjou's most respected biodynamic producers - a wine which all three judges in the most recent Decanter panel blind tasting judged as the only 'Outstanding' wine in the Loire Dry Chenin Blanc category.

Uberblanc Goldpunkt Riesling 2013 , Glaetzer-Dixon Family Winemakers, Tasmania

Meursault 'Les Criots' Domaine Ballot-Millot 2013

Everything you could want from a Meursault. Incredibly enjoyable now, but has the potential for another 7-10 years of ageing. Textbook nose of buttery vanillins, wet stone after rain, stoned fruits and dried grapefruit. There is exhilarating tension on the palate - traverses the tightrope between roundness and vibrant energy with elegance and poise. Textured, almost fleshy, with grip and pristine salinity on the finish. Opens up to become full and mellow - a touch more restrained. Exciting without overblown showiness.
