Description

Wakefield St Andrews Chardonnay

Wakefield St Andrews Chardonnay has sweet spice and savoury cashew nut from the French oak add complexity to the tropical fruit aromas. This is a medium-bodied yet sumptuous wine with an enjoyable creaminess. Flavours of juicy white fleshed stone fruit are evident along with cleansing citrus at the finish.

St Andrews is the flagship range from Wakefield Wines. In 1995 the Taylor family purchased the historic St Andrews property next door to the Wakefield estate, releasing their first wines in 1999. The wines are hand crafted from individually selected parcels of fruit, grown on the family’s estate vineyards, and are a true labour of love with the greatest dedication and care.

The Wakefield estate covers 750 hectares and has approximately 415 hectares under vine with a plan to raise this up to 600 hectares. The estate has a diverse selection of micro-climates, soil combinations and geographical characteristics which combine to create myriad of individual sites which bring their own unique characteristics to the wines. This enables careful site selection to take place ensuring that each grape variety is planted on the most suitable site. Around 60% of the vines are planted on Terra Rossa (red-brown loam over limestone) soils which tend to lie on the hillsides, the rest are planted on deep clay base with rich loam soils on land that rolls down the banks of the Wakefield River.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Domaine Patrick Vauvy Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

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 des Brosses Sancerre 2019

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

Domaine Langlois Chateau Saumur Blanc 2018

Chenin Blanc dominated dry and minerally with a tang of honeyed melon on the palate that leads to the crisp floral finish. The harvest is made entirely by hand yielding 60 hl/ha and 150kg of grapes produced 100 litres of juice in this vintage. Fermentation was controlled at between 18-20 degrees to preserve the precious aromas.
