François Cotat Sancerre Les Caillottes 2018

R515.00 inc. VAT
Cuvée des Caillottes has been around since 2005 and is a great introduction to the Cotat style. Its delicate nose expresses fruity aromas of citrus fruit and flowers. On the palate we find an impressive structure, fine volume, purity and a crystalline substance, always very fruity. A beautiful finish with saline notes.

Cuvée Mont Damnés comes from vines which are over 35 years old, harvested by hand and grown in a sustainable environment. The wine, neither filtered nor clarified, displays fine maturity, coupled with successful ageing in old barrels. Long and crystalline, on the palate there is considerable volume and a mature, rich and concentrated substance. Balance, minerality and tension are the key words of this wine, a benchmark of the appellation.

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon ‘Salici’ 2019

R575.00 inc. VAT
The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Salici lifts up with an enticing display of mineral-infused peach, dusty yellow flowers and a hint of honied almonds. It’s silky and round in feel, caressing the palate with ripe orchard fruits balanced by a wave of zesty citrus and salty acidity. There’s a bit of a tropical touch that lingers through the long and refreshing finale.

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon Blanc ‘Lozeta’ 2019

R675.00 inc. VAT
Crushed stone, candied lemon peels, green apple and dusty dried flowers all rise up effortlessly from the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Lozeta. It’s silky-smooth, almost oily in feel, yet there’s an energy and precision within that excites the senses as saline-minerals add tension over a dense core of ripe stone fruits. The cheeks pucker with youthful tension as tart citrus and inner florals linger long. The 2019 Lozeta could use a year or two of cellaring to reveal all of its charms.

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon Blanc ‘Sol’ 2019

R795.00 inc. VAT
The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Sol is a bit more extroverted and fruit-focused than the Péri, but that’s not to say that it lacks at all in character and verve. Dried apricot, peach and vanilla bean gain further depths with a spritz of lime and hints of wild herbs. It’s soft, almost oily in texture, offset by notes of tart green apple, ginger and savory spice, creating an expression of contrasts. Hints of kiwi, sour melon and saline-mineral tones linger impressively long while residual acids slowly fizzle out. The Sol is sourced from a lower-elevation parcel in the estate vineyards, planted in rocky, calcareous soils.

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon Blanc Péri 2019

R795.00 inc. VAT
The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Péri is intense. It’s deep and bassy at first, lifting up with a pungent yet truly seductive display of crushed stone, wild herbs and moist earth, lifted by hints of zested lemon and yellow florals. The textures are soft and pliant, yet they give way to nervous acidity and notes of sour citrus, which creates a sensation of inner tension. This becomes salty, bristling with saturating mineral tones offset by ripe apples throughout the long and cheek-puckering finale. A minute goes by, and you can not only still taste but also feel the 2019 Péri on your palate. It’s quite a wine. The Péri hails from the oldest Sauvignon vines (about 45 years old) within the estate vineyards, planted in marl and calcareous soils.
