Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon “Serena Palazzolo e Figli” 2019

R385.00 inc. VAT
Aristocratic Sauvignon Bianco with a complex bouquet of gooseberries and citrus notes, plus mineral notes and a hint of grass. A white with excellent varietal character, remarkable density and depth, and surprisingly good value and longevity for its class.

Meroi Picolit 2010

R510.00 inc. VAT
"The 2010 Colli Orientali del Friuli Picolit opens to a deep orange-gold color and shows musky aromas of sun-dried fruit and raisin. You also get bright tones of honey, apricot syrup and even a pungent whiff of pecorino cheese crust. The consistency of this overtly sweet dessert wine is exceedingly rich and chewy." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Ronco del Gnemiz Friulano ‘San Zuan’ 2019

R575.00 inc. VAT
"A bouquet showing young mango, nectarine and dusty yellow florals creates an elegant introduction to the 2019 Friulano San Zuan. This gains in richness and savory depths with time in the glass. It’s silky, weighty yet poised, with sour citrus opening the experience, giving way to white orchard fruits, as masses of stony minerality collect toward the close. That said, there’s a sensation of opulence here, even as the San Zuan tapers off with mouthwatering salty tension. The 2019 could use another year to fully come together; but once it does, it should be absolutely irresistible." - Eric Guido, Vinous

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." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Miani Bianco 2019

A stunning white blend from featuring Friulano, Malvasia, and Ribolla Gialla. It has everything - richness, depth but delivered with grace.

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon “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 Chardonnay “Sol” 2019

R795.00 inc. VAT
There are masses of dusty dried flowers, crushed apple, and stone lifting up from the 2019 Chardonnay Sol. This holds your attention firm, with a sizzling display of zesty acids, salty minerals, and sour orchard fruits. What the 2019 lacks in body, it makes up for with its high energy and cheek-puckering tension, which leaves the palate feeling completely refreshed and just begging for another sip, as pretty inner florals linger long. The Sol is produced from sixty-five-year-old vines within the estate vineyards.

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon “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." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco del Gnemiz Friulano “Buri Bellaria” 2019

R795.00 inc. VAT
The 2019 Friulano Buri Bellaria isn’t quite ready to reveal all of its charms, opening with an alluring yet understated bouquet of ripe pears, apples, hints of mulling spice and dusty florals. It’s an opulent and soothing expression, coasting across a medium-bodied frame with ripe orchard fruits and a hint of custard that comes forward toward the close. There’s a density here that masks a more structured expression beneath, with residual acids which maintain an energetic feel. You can certainly enjoy the 2019 now, but the best is yet to come. Give the 2019 a year or two of cellaring, and watch it shine. The Buri Bellaria hails a vineyard which is managed by the Palazzolo family in Buttrio, and it shows a fruitier and more exotic expression than the estate bottling.

Ronco del Gnemiz Rosso “Dott. Palazzolo” 2018

R895.00 inc. VAT
Crushed stone minerality meets floral undergrowth, dried blackberries and a hint of animal musk to create a beguiling display on the 2018 Dott. Palazzolo Rosso. This is silky and savory, with a sapidity that makes you think more of food than wine, as tart wild berries and spices give way to mounting tannins and herbal tones. Inner violets, black currants and hints of sour citrus all resonate through the finale, along with a tug of structural heft that just begs for another year or two of cellaring. Very nice. The Dott. Palazzolo Rosso is a blend of 50% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, all from estate vineyards.
