Arché – Trebbiano Rubicone IGT, 2018, 6 bottle offer
A beautiful tropical fragrance entices you in whilst the palate is fresh and crisp with lovely citrus fruits.
Calmel & Joseph – Chardonnay Villa Blanche, 2019
Very expressive with white flowers and fruity aromas of apricot and vineyard peach, along with dried fruit and nut overtones. Straightforward, clean, full and well-balanced on the palate, with a fresh and fruity finish revealing mango and citrus overtones. The oak is subtle and very smooth. This vintage shows lovely acidic tension: elegant.
Chardonnay are aged for three months in oak barrels (30% of the vintage).

Casal Mendes – Vinho Verde, Minho, Portugal
Classic white produced from indigenous Portuguese varities in the northern Vinho Verde region.
Delicate citrus aromas lead onto a soft, rounded and slightly off dry palate with a light spritz. It combines apple and floral characters with soft tropical notes and fresh acidity on the finish.

They are cultivated using traditional agriculture and the harvest is low-yield but high-quality.

Review and tasting notes by Tom Cannavan
2005 Vintage Tasted: Jan 2007
As usual, a brilliant performance. Rieussec is all mellow honey and rounded, deeply ripe and concentrated fruit. The palate displays lovely botrytis, with a mouth-filling presence and terrific orangy verve and sharpness. Lovely structure here and real length.
