A beautifully clean, unoaked Chardonnay from the Big Rivers area on the borders between South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. The warm mild weather helped create this near perfect Chardonnay, with tropical fruits and a long refreshing citrusy finish. I like this a lot!

Les Vingnerons, Vermintino colombard, France, 2020, 12% (175ml glass £6.50 / Bottle £25.00)

Crisp with a fresh floral nose, the pleasant white flower and pear vermentino notes on top of the fresh Gascoigne style colombard fruit makes it very drinkable indeed. ‘A simply beautiful’ wine

Domenico De Bertiol, Prosecco, Italy, 11% (glass £6.90/ bottle £26.50)

So, when you think prosecco, you think sweet, sparkling, but fundamentally one dimensional. Think again. Firstly, this is a Frizzante. Which means semi-sparkling. So very soft, gentle bubbles, second, its an explosion of apple, pear and fresh whipped cream flavours that keep on giving. In other words, its absolutely delicious.

Champagne

Champagne J-M Gobillard, Brut Tradition, France, 12.5% (£39.00)

Forget the glitz this is has soul. I’ve met the maker and his family and they’re lovely, kind and hospitable people making superb Champagne. This is gentle, elegant, beautifully balanced and harmonised with ripe apple.
