A blend of Viognier, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc. The grapes for this white blend were hand selected from a variety of locations in Somerset West, Stellenbosch, Wellington and Paarl. They combine magnificently to produce a rounded well balanced wine. A bright, flinty nose with lime, green apples, tangerine and honeysuckle. 12 month’s lees contact adds a creaminess and complexity.
The Cuvée Dentelle is 100% Petit Manseng. The grapes are picked very ripe, end of October / start of November, as if picking for a sweet wine. This gives the wine huge concentration along with low yields. The wines are vinified entirely in 1-2 year old barrels sourced from some of the best Châteaux in Bordeaux. Jean-Joseph uses natural yeasts which can be challenging to vinify given the level of ripeness of the grapes. Throughout the process SO2 levels are kept at a minimum in line with biodynamic regulations.
Grapes from all the best vines, the truly ancient ones, form this cuvée. The wine is fermented naturally and aged in seasoned, large barrels, before being bottled unfiltered. This is an immensely stylish (but not stylised) coiled spring, it’s terrific with simple seafood, from Sea Bass to Mussels.
A white wine, from an elaboration between Equipo Navazos and Dirk Niepoort following the same rigorous criteria of the best winemakers two centuries ago. a) the palomino fino grape, b) sourced from the best vineyards, c) fermented in butt, d) making use only of wild yeast, e) aged under the veil of flor that would grow immediately after fermentation had stopped, f) without fortification. Navazos-Niepoort is a unique wine, with Sherry like aromas, limestone and chalk dust notes. A wine full of character, vibrant, fresh and mineral, showing the pure expression of chalky soil.

Aromas of apple blossoms, poached pear and hints of spicy oak. Pear continues through to the palate with stone fruits and some citrus notes. Medium bodied with a creamy finish. Pairs well with earthy ingredients such as roasted artichokes and butternut squash.
Fresh and minerally white. The name derives from the Ligurian word ‘pigau’, referring to the small spots on the grape skins. It likes to be grown near the seaside and has has a sapid salinity, as well as herbal aromas. Unsurprisingly, Pigato is simply to die for with seafood.

Terramatter is a different kind of wine from the Natural Soalheiros range, which means that it is unfiltered and produced from the Alvarinho grape variety, grown in a way that supports biodiversity. A very unique microclimate influences the growth of these Alvarinho grapes. The Melgaço region, at the northernmost point of Portugal, is protected by a range of mountains which create the perfect rainfall, temperature and sunshine conditions needed for the ideal ripening of the Alvarinho grapes.
An absolutely stunning wine from Macedonia! Enticing aromas of peach, vanilla and flinty notes combine with a vibrant burst of fresh grapefruit. A wonderful weight and creamy texture on the palate with notable minerality, this is a tropical version of a white Graves.
Named after both an old Italian winemaker that made white wines like red wines and a Sicilian bandit named Testalonga.
With fresh apple as the predominant flavour that you want from a Chenin Blanc and a vivacity and texture that gives it excellent composure.
Aromas of wild honey and freshly baked bread which contrast with its dry, very racy texture. Core flavours are remeniscent of Asian fruits with a minerality that comes through. Similar to Jura in style but distinctively New World. Fascinating Chenin showing how South Africa is becoming a very exciting country for natural wine with life and vigour!
“Toasty, smoky and funky on the nose with mineral dusting and brooding intensity. The palate is salty dry with laser-beam precision and very funky wild ferment layering of complexity with oak wreathed into the mix with sensitivity. The finish is dry, with lasting salty and tangy flavours. Unique and outstanding wine.” (The Wine Gang)

Aromas of sweet spices and ripe apple, followed by citrus notes and grapefruit on the palate. Crisp and refreshing. Serve as an aperitif or with light starters and seafood.
An enormous box of a brilliant white wine from Cantine Povero. This is equivalent to over six and a half bottles, but it will stay fresh for a month after opening (if you can keep it that long). All grown on an eco-friendly estate in Piedmont, this dry cortese is incredible value for money.
