A A Badenhorst Family White 2015

Seems more lifted and delicate than previous vintages. That line of Normandy butter creaminess is finer than ever. Fruit is on the exotic citrus side but this is a much finer, more delicate wine than I would expect. Really lovely freshness and length.

Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

The devil (or at least the incredible flavour) really is in the detail with this wine. Hand picking, minimal intervention, natural fermentation in oak barrels and naturation on the lees keep the grapefruit and floral citrus nose while giving the wine a bit more to shout about on the beautifully rounded palate. With 96 points from James Halliday this is a go to wine for purity, minerality and most importantly quality!

Condrieu 'Les Vallins', Domaine Blanc Christophe 2016

It's more restrained than the 2014 when we first encountered it, in Spring 2016, but with a few more months it will develop richer flavours. I think the 2016 is a finer wine than the 2014, and overall a better balanced wine, and its evolution will be slower meaning it will keep for longer. Delicate at first, but as you swirl the glass the aromas of apricot, peach, herbs and pollen notes begin to come out and captivate. As it opens the fruits become more pronounced on the palate. The texture (think finest down pillow) and concentration, a bit like a fine Barsac, is sufficient that you feel the density in your mouth, the beautiful lingering stone fruit flavours. It will develop in richness and flavour over the next 12 months, but retain its freshness and purity. I'll be sneaking a bottle for Christmas but it will probably be at its best from summer 2018 for 2 to 3 years.

Restless River Ava Marie Chardonnay 2015

The boutique winery of Restless River is located in Hemel-en-Aarde where winemakers Craig and Anne Wessels are carefully making two Restless River wines. Established in 1999 in this very young wine region, the Restless River’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay vineyards represent some of the oldest in all of the valley. The fruit, sourced from tiny yields from vines planted on extremely diverse soils and located only 5km from the Atlantic Ocean, struggles to ripen in this particularly cold climate and lingers on the vine long into autumn, often harvested as late as May. All wines produced from Restless River are unfined as well as unfiltered.

Kutch Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast 2015

'Killer' (Rajat Parr), 'Stunner' (Jamie Goode), 'Unmissable' (Richard Hemming) - the inaugural 2014 vintage of Jamie Kutch's Chardonnay was a unanimous, Coche-Dury referencing success. All critics were agreed that the man nailed it, producing a flinty, cool Sonoma Coast Chardonnay that hit all the right notes and then came on for a couple of encores and played them all perfectly again. Here we have the 2015 and, by the beard of Zeus, he's done it again. Huge scores and avalanche of superlatives from critics; his reputation as the best Chardonnay producer in California more or less assured; and the wine itself - quite possibly flawless. What can one say? Clearly, whether it's Pinot or Chardonnay, Jamie Kutch is a winemaker to be reckoned with. This is electrifying Chardy. Yields were markedly low in Sonoma in 2015, so, as you can imagine, supplies are very limited, but it's worth going that extra mile for. In Cali terms, it's a pretty much in a league of its own.

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru, 'Les Embrazees' Caroline Morey 2012

Caroline Morey began to release wines under her own name in 2006, with her husband Pierre-Yves as winemaker. The style of the wines is typical of Pierre-Yves, concentrated with a core of pure fruit yet rapier straight with real citrus bite and driving minerality.

“A new star is born! A wine of remarkable harmony from the entry into the mouth and up to the finale. Its texture is silky smooth yet nice and crisp. The nose generously exhibits a palette of fruits ranging from citrus fruits to pear through to peach. A superbly successful Chassagne that combines balance and finesse with great class.” Laurent Gotti - ‘All About Burgundy’

Leeu Passant Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2015

A powerful and altogether more extrovert chardonnay but which packs a zesty, saline element amid swirling heady notes of lime and blossoms. Produced from two parcels on the Helderberg in Stellenbosch, this is very likely a new benchmark for South African chardonnay.

Leeu Passant Elandskloof Chardonnay 2015

The more elegant and restrained of the two chardonnays from fruit grown at a high altitude in Elandskloof. Reminiscent of the more reductive styles of white Burgundy, with a tight, flinty element combined with moreish stone fruit flavour and lemon curd. Creamy with lime citrus hints and a certain exotic spice. A full, rich, mouthfilling wine but one marked by a fresh, taut finish.

Spatburgunder Weiler Schlipf CS, Weingut Claus Schneider, Baden 2014

A wine with the dew still on it. Lovely youthful red cherry, strawberry and blackberry fruit and a subtle wisp of smoke, dried orangepeel, sandalwood, gamey, new leather (Johannes's CS range is partly matured in new barriques) notes emerging with time in the glass. I'm transported to Gevrey tasting this. On the palate, the tannins are present but fine enough for the wine to be very enjoyable now. Laying down would be wise, however. The wine is structured but subtly so, with a firm backbone of acidity - from a combination of the limestone soil and the cooler 2014 vintage - suggest ageability of ten years at least. Johannes management of the flavour profiles and the clear delineation of quality levels is remarkable.

Barbera d'Alba Sandrone 2014

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com "The 2014 Barbera d'Alba is a solid wine for the year. Rose petal, bright raspberry fruit, mint and sweet spices are nicely pushed forward. Bright and medium in body, the 2014 is a bit angular and lacks the seamlessness of the very best years, but it is nicely done. This is about as good as it gets in 2014 for Barbera. Drink 2017-2020"

Chorey-les-Beaune 'Les Bons Ores', Maratray-Dubreuil 2016

Chorey-Les-Beaune is a pretty modest appellation, underrated in the firmament of Burgundy’s vineyards, but this is precisely the kind of wine that can score big in great years. In Chorey-Les-Beaune ‘Les Bons Ores’ Maratray-Dubreuil we have a wine made by a brilliant winemaker that punches above its weight every year. This is one the best-value wines in Burgundy. Add to that the conditions of a great vintage and you really have a treat for the price. You don’t often see me recommend red Burgundy but Maratray-Dubreuil has nailed it.

It is a grape variety that was thought to have been lost in the 1950's so finding an original vineyard of it is incredibly exciting! This is an intriguing and different style of wine, dark but with bright fruit and big tannins. Highlighted by Tim Atkin as on of his standout wines from the New Wave South Africa tastings.

Barbera d'Alba 'Vigna Pozzo' Renato Corino 2014

We've managed this year to get one whole barrel! Only ten are made. Somtimes we get none, such is the demand for this delicious and great value Piemontese wine. A barrel equates to 25 cases. Pozzo, meaning water well, is an excellently sited special cru in La Morra planted with 60 year old vines. It ages deliciously. When young you would be best decanting. You can expect stewed plums, espresso, roses, pine; it's plush and smooth with lots of fruit. You can age it for ten years or more and it's as it best between 4 and 10 years.

Petrichor has an amazing aroma of black olives, herbs, graphite with a touch of game. It’s a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, a typical Chateauneuf du Pape blend. It’s got lovely flavours and complexity; a bit of soul going on. This is a real boutique effort, made by a big collector of wine who found this small cool climate high altitude vineyard and got one of his favourite winemakers and a top viticulture guy to make the wine.
