Wei Chi 'Luschinger Vineyard Semillon' Lake County 2012

Made by Aussie Erin Pooley this is Hunter Valley Semillon from California that made the Swig team swoon with delight! Lots of green pear, geranium and mandarin on the nose with citrus and an amazingly unctuous body on the palate. Scrummy!

Rully La Barre, Domaine Ninot 2014

From a family with a history in wine dating back to the fourteenth century this is a vineyard that makes traditional and delicious wine. Meticulous attention is made to all aspects of the winemaking with vineyards handled as organically as possible, grapes hand harvested and 12 to 18 months in oak barrels. The oak is light on the nose and palate allowing for the purity of the fruit and the minerality to shine through.

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.

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!

These are no 'poor man's Montrachet', which is the tag sometimes given to the overachieving producers of the less famous regions (appelations such as Rully, Santenay and Montagny); these are the real deal.

AA Badenhorst Dassiekop Steen 2015

From a very old vineyard up in the hills of Swartland this is a very small production wine with a beautifuly complexity and weight balanced out with the trademark acidity of Chenin Blanc. Expect lots of crushed biscuit, cooked apple, heady apricot and fruit and stone intensity. It is an exceptional Chenin, and we count our lucky stars we were able to get a little more stock.

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.

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.

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.

Ochota Barrels, +5VOV Chardonnay 2015

Winemaker Taras Ochota explains the name, saying it is taken from 'the back of my 1960s bass amp I used in my misspent youth playing in punk bands. It was such a simple less-is-more image which represents going back to basics, no fancy stuff, just old-school winemaking from an insane Basket Range vineyard.

Ridge Monte Bello Chardonnay 2013

‘The 2013 Chardonnay Monte Bello is exceptional. Rich, layered and creamy, the 2013 exudes depth. Readers will have to wait at least a few years before the 2013 hits its stride, but all the elements are in the right place. Yellow orchard fruit, mint, sweet spices and flowers are all fused together in an exceptional, racy Chardonnay loaded with class and personality. Today, the 2013 is a total knock-out. The 2,000 case production for the Monte Bello Chardonnay is a record high for Ridge.’ Antonio Galloni 95/100

Barbera d'Asti 'La Bricca' Rinaldi, Piedmont 2009

While Barolo may be the king of Piedmont, its little brother, Barbera, cavorts around the region like a playboy prince, constantly reinventing itself and turning up in a variety of unexpected disguises. It’s a fiendishly difficult grape to pin down and we have tasted it in all it forms, from the very dark and brooding, to the light and ethereal. This one clearly looks up to its big brother, displaying similar flavour characteristics of warm plum skins, loose tea, leather, kirsch, tomato leaves and cherry wood. Where Barolo has muscle and power, this capers more nimbly, with its naturally high acidity carrying those delicious autumnal flavours within a lighter and more forgiving frame. 14% alc.

Langhe Nebbiolo "Il Crutin" Manzone, Monforte d'Alba 2013

Il Crutin is made with 100% Nebbiolo sourced from vines of the Castelletto and Gramolere vineyards in Monforte d’Alba. Because the winery has no ‘minor’ vineyards to use for an entry-level, approachable nebbiolo, the family decided to declassify parts of the Castelletto and Gremolere vineyard to make il Crutin. Il Crutin (‘small cellar’ in Piedmontese dialect) is an old house located on the Gremolere hill: hand-carved in the rock in the 1800’s, purchased by Giovanni Manzone in 2000. Dark plums, coffee beans and aniseed. Cranberries with a bit of leather and a long dry finish, with a berry tinted 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 '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.

Valpolicella Ripasso Monte Santoccio Nicola Ferrari 2015

'Ripasso' is a Valpolicella style which involves reusing the pressed skins of the grapes that go into Amarone during fermentation, which adds structure, power and complexity. Aged for 24 months in a combination of Slavonian oak botti and French barriques, this is one of the most interesting as well as enjoyable Ripassos you're ever likely to try. Is is just one third of the price of his mentor's, and I would say as good, as I think there is great purity in the wine.

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.
