Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc 2014
New ZealandThe unique terroir where the Stoneleigh Vineyards lie defines the wine's independent qualities. Located on the northern side of the Wairau Valley, in close proximity to Marlborough's main river, the Wairau, the vignerons have located the vineyards on shallow rock and gravel-exposed soils. These soils, low in nutrient and water-holding capacity, coupled with the terroir's warmer climate and high rainfall add up to produce a wine with its own unique sense of 'place'. The winemaker has harvested the fruit at peak intensity looking for both fresh and ripe fruit characters. With minimal winemaking intervention, this wine is able to express its own unique qualities.
Another classic Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc featuring fantastically ripe fruit displaying tropical notes with an underlying citrus edge. Crisp, vibrant and lively, this is a very pleasing wine

Zalze Chenin Blanc 2016
South AfricaZalze wines hail from Kleine Zalze Estate, situated just three kilometres outside of Stellenbosch, South Africa. Location on a variety of slopes, soils and aspects, the vineyards that bear the fruit for the Zalze range of wines are exposed to fresh ocean breezes from the False Bay, which lies a mere 15 kilometres away. This cool climate yields delicate flavours, while at the same time providing optimal growing and ripening conditions to our fruit. The grapes were harvested from low yield-bearing bush vines from the Helderberg and Wellington areas of the coastal region.
Upfront limey, citrusy and tropical flavours on the nose and lychee and peach aromas that follows through to the palate. This wine is an excellent example of a balance between the fresh and fruity and rich and ripe style of bushvine Chenin Blanc. Due to the uneven ripening of the grapes fresh, flinty flavours were obtained with a long, clean, crisp aftertaste.

Campogrande Orvieto Santa Cristina 2013
ItalyThe Antinori family released their first wine under the Santa Cristina name in 1946. Since then Santa Cristina has been a byword for quality and value in Tuscany, now more so than ever since the creation of a dedicated winery in 2006. The range now consists of reds and roses from Tuscany and whites from Umbria, so the winery's location in Cortona, southern Tuscany, is ideal. This wine is produced from grapes from the Orvieto Classico appellation, which encompasses the area around the alluvial cliff on which the city of Orvieto is located.
The nose shows both floral and fruity notes, particularly pineapple and banana, while the palate is medium-bodied, with more fruit and a round, delicate finish.
