Cape Original Chenin Blanc Western Cape 2017 Product #33120 (In Stock)
Cape Original Chenin Blanc Western Cape 2017 Cape Original Chenin Blanc Western Cape 2017

South Africans used to call Chenin Blanc "Steen" and make it fruity and fun and cheap enough to drink anytime they were thirsty.  This harks back to those days, if in a much better made, crisp, and fully dry style.  Loads of rich and tangy lemon curd and fresh tangerine fruit make up the core flavors and aromas with hints of pineapple and Yellow Delicious for complexity. 

At just 12.5% alcohol, this isn't heavy or fleshy, but it does have great body and a nice depth across the middle before finishing crisp, clean, dry and delicious.  The kind of bottle you'll open so you can put a cup of wine in a dish and then be surprised to notice that all the wine is gone an hour later.

Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc 2016 Product #32497 (In Stock)
Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc 2016 Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc 2016

Looking for a white with Chardonnay weight but a fresher, more complex, set of aromas and flavors?  This South African standard fits the bill!

"Bright yellow-gold. Ripe but subtle scents of pineapple, anise and dusty wild herbs; one gets a sense of terroir here. A step up in energy and grip from the 2015 Curator, showing lovely salinity and fresh acidity, but less round and harmonious today, and still with a bit of unabsorbed CO2."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

Vigneau Chevreau Vouvray Sec 2016 Product #32436 (In Stock)
Vigneau Chevreau Vouvray Sec 2016 Vigneau Chevreau Vouvray Sec 2016

Certified organic grapes, minimal intervention winemaking, and perfectly ripe Chenin Blanc grapes come together here in a crisp, clean, classic dry Vouvray to enjoy on its own or with rich foods.  Aromas of mineral-driven pear, white flower, and hazelnut lead to big flavors of dried peach and apple with a bite of lemon rind on the long, juicy, finish.  The "silex" soils shine through here!

Dom Perrault Jadaud Vouvray Sec Grande Grive 2015 Product #33210 (In Stock)

Wildly, amazingly, delicious. A wine that will change your perception of what "Vouvray" is all about.  Tanguy Perrault and Anne-Cécile Jadaud started this estate in 2008 with zero wine experience, but boy have they learned fast.  All organic farming, older barrels purchased from Henri Bourgeois in Sancerre, and ultra-minimal sulfur. The wine explodes with sweet-tart peach, apricot and quince fruit with accents of chalk, beeswax, and preserved lemon.  The acidity  would be painful but for the terrific levels of buffering fruit.  Long, complex and lovely.

Dom Huet Vouvray Cuvee Constance 2003 500ml Product #32128 (In Stock)
Dom Huet Vouvray Cuvee Constance 2003 500ml Dom Huet Vouvray Cuvee Constance 2003 500ml

Perfect now and for decades to come.

"The color of the 2003 Vouvray Moelleux Cuvée Constance (poured from the 500 ml bottle) is as golden-orange as is the small paper strip label. On the nose this wine is an unreal beauty, combining perfect fruit ripeness and concentration with precision, finesse and spicy/mineral flavors that are quite rare in sweet wines of this top level. Smooth, nobly elegant, perfectly balanced and highly intense on the palate, this is a wine to die for. Its finesse and weightless intensity is beyond worth. Surely the finest Huet I ever tasted.
