White wines

Banrock Station White****


Banrock Station White is, ironically, a rosé rather than white Shiraz (but don't let that put you off!), with a wonderful balance of fruit and dryness. Tastes oh-so good, oh-so fruity, with a touch of sherbet about the taste. So easy to drink, watch you don't fall over!!!

Chill and enjoy with pasta, chicken, salads, or just on its own. One bottle is not enough!

De Bortoli Dry Botrytis 1998 *****


De Bortoli Dry Botrytis is an extraordinary Semillon wine. Normally the botrytis rot is used to concentrate the juices to make sweet desert wine, but this Gewurstraminer is the first dry botrytis wine I've ever tasted. De Bortoli produce it at their winery in the Yarra Valley in Australia.

Just as with a sweet botrytis all the juice has been concentrated by removal of water by the botrytis, the result is a thick juicy flavoured wine which really stands out from the crowd!

Les Domaines Grassa*****


This win is made with Colombard and Ugni Blanc in the Gascogne area of France. Until recently these grapes all went to Armagnac production. Then someone had the idea of producing a wine. Thank goodness. Now sold under this name and also by Marks and Spencer under their own label, this is an exceptionally clean tasting, refreshing wine.

Concha y Toro Carmenere Maipo Valley****


I bought this Concha y Toro Carmenere Maipo Valley Winemaker's Lot wine from the Los Morros Vineyard in Chile for the wrong reasons! I liked the label, which was a luggage tag stuck to the bottle. But the reality is that it is good, very good. A high altitude carmenere wine from 550 metres, it is strong bramble and casis flavours with a little spice on the tannin.
