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.

Tasting Notes

All welcome the Alphabetical Wine Co! A new addition to the SWiG portfolio, Alphabetical "Vin Ordinaire" is a collab between two friends, David and Simon. Without their own estate, or years of winemaking heritage, they wanted to make something great and something different - wines that are voluptuous yet drinkable, impressive yet affordable. Working with carefully selected farmers and high quality fruit, these are unpretentious wines that focus on the varietal, made in the utmost care and love. The 2016 is 70% Roussanne, 30% Chardonnay. Winemaker note: “If you’re after heavy wood and overripeness you’re looking at the wrong bottle. Instead, think of the most drinkable, fresh and lively wine you’ve tasted all year. Throw in some more adjectives of goodness and you’re almost there. “
