Berncasteler Doctor Riesling Auslese Weingut Dr H Thanisch (Thanisch), Mosel, Germany , 2017

This is a lovely vintage from a revered family-run vineyard, currently with Sofia Thanisch at the helm. The 2017 rings of peach and orange blossom, weighing in with plenty of body and a persisting finish that unfolds notes of minerality. It gives a real taste of the terroir from the offset, it is distinctively on the sweeter side and sits at 7.5% ABV.

Riesling Beblenheim Domaine Trapet, Alsace, France, 2015

A biodynamic Alsace Riesling from the Trapet family, predominantly known for their Burgundian, this vintage has depth delivered from a few years’ laid down. Reflective of the limestone and clay soils, this Riesling is dry with a distinctive mineral backbone and stone fruit prevailing from nose to palate alongside high levels of citric acidity.

Lonely Vineyard Riesling, Eden Valley, South Australia, 2016

For those that love the petroleum characteristics that are so unique to Riesling, this Lonely Vineyard vintage is bursting with it. From Australia’s Eden Valley this dry, vibrant Riesling displays the characteristics of its loamy soils in soft minerality and light floral notes.

Saint-Véran Les Chatenays, Domaine Carrette, Burgundy, France, 2018

Of all the 2018 white burgundies I have tasted, this is the one that lingers in the mind. From Domaine Carrette’s Mâconnais vineyards in southern Burgundy, its bright, sparky lime and lemon peel fruit is a whizz.

Tenuta di Trinoro, IGT Rosso Toscana, Italy, 2010

When Andrea Franchetti discovered this site in the deep south of Tuscany, he knew the terroir was like nothing he’d seen before. As a Bordeaux man, terroir is everything and so removing acres of scrubs and deserted woodland he planted his vines, did his thing and naturally word spread. 9,700 vines are handpicked bunch by bunch with several passages through the vines to ensure optimum ripeness. The wine itself is created from 60% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. The result? Stunning juicy red fruits with tobacco, spice, savoury smoke and a kiss of minerality binding it all together.

Intipalka Malbec, Ica Valley, Viñas Queirolo, Peru, 2018

A Peruvian Malbec! Quite different in style but incredibly delicious. Crisp, fresh and light on its feet, with notes of cool raspberry, red cherry and liquorice spice.

Petit Verdot, Bodega Ruca Malen, Mendoza, Argentina, 2017

There aren't many 100% Petit Verdot wines to be found in Argentina, but this example from Ruca Malen suggests that there should be more. Attractive juicy black fruit aromas are edged with chocolate and herbs, followed by an intense but elegant palate, with well integrated tannins. Deep black fruit with liquorice spice is wrapped in sweet cedary oak that lingers on the rich and persistent finish, alongside a savoury note.

Breaky Bottom, Cuvée Oliver Minkley Brut Traditional Method, East Sussex, England, 2011

Inviting toasty aroma. Very high acidity but it is balanced by the rich toasty autolytic effect. Creamy texture and so full of flavour. Mature and complex but plenty of potential ahead. Slight sweetness shows on the finish.

Mâcon-Verzé Les Chênes, Domaines Leflaive, Burgundy, France, 2017

Bright citrus and green fruits and a very strongly stony mineral quality, almost like concrete but in a good way. Juicy even though it is utterly and deliciously bone dry. Direct and long and very pure.

Saint-Péray, Vieilles Vignes Tardieu-Laurent, Rhône, France 2017

Creamy, lightly oaked aroma. Some peaches and cream but zesty with citrus too. More oaky on the palate, the freshness and chalky texture counterbalancing the sweetness of the peachy fruit (sweet flavour not sweet in terms of sugar). Slightly bitter peach-kernel finish. Lots of flavour and lovely freshness. Distinctive but well-made oaky style.

Maranges 1er Cru Les Clos Roussots, Domaine Cyrot-Buthiau, Burgundy, France, 2017

Lightish cherry red and sweet-smelling red fruits. Tight and lively on the palate, well balanced between the freshness and the fruit, and the tannins are fine rather than silky. Harmonious and ready now though there’s no rush. Persistent finish. It’s good but shows how hard it is to get value in Burgundy.

Gattinara DOCG, Azienda Vitivinicola Nervi, Piedmont, Italy, 2015

Roberto Conterno (proprietor of the Giacomo Conterno estate in Barolo) recently acquired this historic Gattinara estate. Mid to light ruby. Very delicate fragrance of dark-red cherries. Subtle, elegant, dry and fine boned. Very long.

Santa Florentina Pinot Gris Selección Reservada Fairtrade, La Riojana, Valles del Famatina, Argentina, 2018

This Fairtrade Pinot Gris hails from Famatina Valley in northern Argentina, where producer La Riojana employs over 2,000 local families. Fresh and fruity nose, with peachy notes, ripe pear and lemon citrus. A full-on and fruity palate, with zesty lemon and grapefruit opening up into peach and pineapple. A touch of oiliness to the texture is balanced by zingy acidity, with a crisp lime finish. Mouthwatering!

Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC, Terre di Cariano, Cecilia Beretta, Veneto, Italy, 2017

Oodles of black cherry and dried plum flavours along with a welcome savoury note make it the go-to wine to accompany any meaty pasta dish or ripe Italian cheese.

Öreg Király Dűlő Dry Furmint, Barta, Tokaji, Hungary, 2015

This example from the highest vineyard in the Tokaj region has beautifully balanced flavours of peach and mirabelle plum with soft oak notes and a long finish.

John Clarke (The Independent) - March 2020

Refined and complex, this expressive wine has aromas of quince, apple, lime leaf and jasmine. The palate balances ripe fruit – white peach, yellow plum, greengage, pineapple – with a touch of spicy oak and mineral freshness.
