Description

Cave de Hunawihr Gewurztraminer Reserve

Cave de Hunawihr Gewurztraminer Reserve is straw yellow in colour with silvery gold tints, the nose is very complex, with notes of exotic fruits (lychee, mango) and subtle aromas of white pepper.

The mouth of Cave de Hunawihr Gewurztraminer Reserve is full and very long, this is a wine with good freshness from lingering acidity balanced with a touch of residual sugar on the finish.

Founded in 1954, Hunawihr may be small for a co-operative, with 110 members and 200 hectares of vineyard, but it is consistently rated as one of France’s top five in terms of quality.

Much of Hunawihr’s success is due to their winemaker, Nicolas Garde, who joined in 2004 and has, year after year, crafted whistle-clean and exciting wines.

In 1954, Alsace was slowly recovering from a devastating World War II, and German occupation.

That’s when a few wine makers of Hunawihr realized that they could all improve the quality of their production by working as a team.

Blessed with amazing terroirs, the founding members spent their days working in the vines… and their nights constructing by hand the building, yet completely renovated, but still in use to this day.

50 years later, Cave Vinicole de Hunawihr ranks among the best : “La Revue du Vin de France” classified our cellar the 1st cooperative wine house in Alsace and the 3rd in France.

Picking is mainly done by hand: 100% for Grands Crus and Lieux-dits, more than 60% for the rest of the range. The grapes are taken from the vineyards to the press house in specially harvest trailers in order to conserve the entire grapes.

The winery receives only a grape variety and an origin (Reserve, Lieux-dits, Grands Crus) per day, depending on the terroir and the micro-climate, preserving the character of each parcel of vineyards.

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D’Oc 2017

Fresh, intensely floral, yet very fruity - apple blossom and lemon aromas give way to peach, orange and all manner of tropical fruit nuances, leading to an intense grapiness on the palate. This really is packed with flavour, combining a touch of richness with gorgeous acidity and a subtle herbiness. A beautifully made wine of real elegance - and brilliant value for money.

Domaine Perraud Macon Village Quick View

Domaine Perraud Macon Village 2018

Bright yellow in colour with perfumed white flowers and stone fruit on the nose. The palate is medium to full bodied, with lively citrus acidity and flavours of fruit salad including melon, peach and a hint of pineapple. The finish is mineral and long with the fresh acidity balancing the full fruit nicely.

Aromo Viognier Quick View

Aromo Viognier 2018

Full bodied white with a rich background of savoury notes, a very aromatic peach and mayblossom fruit character, but without any sweetness. No oak and fresh fruit makes this wine a real winner. The Aromo wines have a great charm and appeal and this is no exception.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy Quick View

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2018

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Colour is vibrant lemon with green tinges. This multiple trophy winner from a stunning vintage shows classical Eden Valley lime juice with a hint of warm buttered toast. The palate is remarkably youthful with zesty acidity and a fine, mineral, dry finish. This is Eden Valley at its very best.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Quick View

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.

Dobogo Tokaji Furmint 2016

Medium gold in colour with a complex array of aromas including fresh notes of lime, pear, ripe apple, quince, herbs, chamomile and a hint of spiciness. The taught acid structure balances the ripe fruit concentration and salty, mineral character, which lingers on the elegant finish. This is a young and dynamic wine, which can be enjoyed immediately or aged for several years.
