Le Balbuzard is made by the superb Sancerre producer, Emile Balland. Fresh, tropical fruit with the classic Loire Valley minerality. Named after a fish-eating bird found along the Loire, this is quite probably the best sauvignon you can buy for the price.
A fresh Natural wine from a great winemaker in Gascony. Crisp apple and pear fruit aromas, which mingle with delicate floral notes. On the palate the wine is lifted by exotic notes of kiwi and pineapple, yet the overwhelming character is that of precision, linear minerality and elegance.
A versatile wine well suited to serving with grilled trout or other river fish, young sheep’s cheese or as an aperitif. Grapes are sourced from organic vineyards located in the southwest of Gascony.
In 2019 Duncan Savage stumbled across a 32 year old block of vines in Stellenbosch, a vineyard with the right elevation, warmth and wind for Sauvignon Blanc. And so the Salt River Sauvignon Blanc was born. Impressive flavours of grapefruit peel, white citrus and peach liqueur. Concentrated fruit flavours and purity makes this a wine for all Sauvignon lovers, from novices to connoisseurs.
Classic Pouilly-Fumé with citrus and smoky notes. Perfect with goats cheese or smoked salmon.
Domaine Lebrun is a family estate, making wine since 1861, it was developed by Fernand and Eugénie, and is now run by Laurent Lebrun, 6th generation winemaker. It covers around 9
hectares (22 acres) in the centre of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation, stretching over the slopes of Saint-Andelain on a typical terroir of flinty clay.
One of Listrac’s most prominent estates with 17 hectares of vines located on a particularly favourable site between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten.
Rare in Listrac, this Listrac château produces an excellent dry white wine. It is a blend of Semillon, planted in 1935 and Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1983 with a bit of Muscadelle planted in 1935.
Keermont Estate may well take the prize for most beautiful vineyards and views in all of South Africa. And yup, there’s some pretty stiff competition! Nestled in a natural amphitheatre between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, their ambition is to produce wines that reflect the natural wonders of this exquisite place.
61% Chenin Blanc, 13% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Chardonnay and 3% Viognier, with the backbone of the Chenin blanc from a 40 year old, unirrigated vineyard called ‘Riverside’. One of the great things about Keermont is that they never rush to release their wines, so it’s developed some nicely waxy notes, pear tarte tatin, butterscotch and honeysuckle, macadamia nuts with a herbal, both sweet meadow and fresh green herb palate and long, tangy finish.
Michel Reverdy farms 14ha of vines of which 11 are given over to producing Sancerre blanc. This is a benchmark producer of Sancerre, farming the old fashioned, tried and tested way – hard work and sweat! His family have grown grapes in the area since the 16th century with Michel joining his father and brothers in 1971.
Sancerre Blanc matches perfectly with fish and seafood. It is also very appreciated with the other local specialty, the goat cheese Crottin de Chavignol. A pure and fresh sauvignon blanc.
“Haywire” is an old Canadianism that refers to wire used for baling hay. This type of wire tended to tangle and be unpredictable making it an apt description of Christine Coletta and Steve Lornie’s impromptu decision to forgo retirement and journey into the wine business. The pair first launched Haywire in 2009 as a tiny virtual wine brand. In 2011 a permanent home for Haywire was established on Switchback Vineyard in Summerland with the opening of Okanagan Crush Pad.
Lively notes of tropical fruits of green mango and grapefruit with cream and distinct ‘Okanagan’ herbal aromatics of rosemary and bay leaf. Beautifully balanced with a lush mouthfeel, backed by refreshing acidity.
