Lucien Muzard Santanay Blanc ‘Claude Champs’ ($29.99): Creamy with a baked-banana tinge to the green apple aromas. Soft and full to start with, building quietly to the green flavours of fern, and unripe Claude Reine. Persistent citrus-pith bitterness tinged with sandalwood spice. Morels and herbs. Very savoury and interesting, bit of green tea, the finish as keen as a sharpened blade.
Clos de la Grange Touraine Sauvignon Blanc ($15.99):
From famed Montlouis winemaker Francois Chidaine, this 100% Sauvignon is made biodynamically and sees no oak. Fuller-bodied, with notes of fresh citrus and stones fruits, all with a mouthwatering finish.
Calabretta Cala Cala Rosso ($18.99): A blend of the 2009, 2008 and 2005 vintages. Sourced from a mix of young and old vines. Cala Cala means “Gulp, Gulp”, meaning you should gulp this one down because it’s so tasty!
Clos Des Fous Pour Ma Gueule Pais Blend Itata ($15.99): Aromas of red berry, black cherry, black pepper, and a hint of violet. These elements come through on the palate with fresh black and red fruit, revealing a full, rich wine, opening generously to become silky, lush.
