François Cotat Sancerre les Monts Damnés 2019

R695.00 inc. VAT
"A pure and refined expression with intense concentration and laser-like precision. If you're looking for stereotypical Sauvignon fruit, go elsewhere, as the 2019 Sancerre Monts Damnés is a wine that's all about delicacy and structure. While there's a sense of richness on the mid-palate, a rod of acidity runs through the wine, providing a mouthwatering stream of freshness. There is loads of structure here, holding the wine together. Balanced, with a briny character on the long finish." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon “Salici” 2020

R550.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Salici is finessed and delicate in style. It wafts up with hints of crushed stone giving way to citrus-tinged peach. This is silky-smooth and broad, almost glycerol, fleshing out across the palate with a dense wave of ripe orchard fruits and sweet spices. It takes a turn toward the savory spectrum, finishing lightly structured and with a buzzing of citrus intensity. This is a gorgeous Sauvignon that impresses today, but its best years are yet to come. The Salici hails from sandier soils and 25-five-year-old vines from within the Ronco del Gnemiz vineyards. It matures in all-neutral barrels." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon Blanc “Péri” 2020

R750.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Peri wafts up with a whiff of crushed chalk before giving way to citrus-tinged apples and pears. This is silky, almost oily in character, with penetrating ripe orchard fruits and sweet spices that pamper the senses, just as saline-minerals form a more stimulating and tactile feel toward the close. This tapers off long and spicy, leaving the palate classically dry and fresh. There’s so much going on here, yet much more to come with maturity. Beautiful. The Peri hails from Ronco del Gnemiz's oldest Sauvignon vineyard, with vines that are around 45 years old." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon “Serena Palazzolo e Figli” 2020

R350.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Serena Palazzolo e Figli is very easy to like. Both spicy and intense, with smoky crushed stone giving way to musky peach and hints of confectionery spice. This washes across the palate, with round yet juicy textures delivering ripe orchard fruits and hints of candied lime. Its stimulating minerality and sour citrus add poise, yet not so much to slow its momentum, as the 2020 finishes long and wickedly fresh. This would make a great gateway wine for lovers of Sauvignon looking to explore Friuli. The Serena Palazzolo e Figli is a blend of fruit from throughout the Ronco del Gnemiz vineyards. Its minerality and sour citrus character keep the experience engaging to say the least. " - Eric Guido, Vinous
