Crisp, Light and Mineral
Within this section, you will find wines that exhibit a zingy freshness. Most often these wines
are dry, light-bodied, mostly unoaked and usually possess crisp levels of acidity. Given their overall
structure, these wines are suitable to consume both on their own as an aperitif but also make great
partners for white fish, shellfish and dishes with acidic elements such as vinaigrettes.

“Aromatic” white wine styles tend to be naturally pungent; often created from grape varieties whose inherent perfumes shine through in the glass. In contrast, more “neutral” styles of white are often made with grape varieties that possess less natural perfume and sometimes owe more to external influences such as oak barrel ageing and other winemaking techniques. Aromatic styles make ideal partners for dishes with reasonably strong flavours, creating a great foil for spicy dishes or those that have a certain degree of sweetness.
Pacifico Sur Sauvignon Blanc
Curico Valley, Chile. 2016. This fantastic wine is pale lemon in colour with bags of tropical fruit flavour, background citrus notes and a long, elegant finish.
Mont Rocher Viognier

Domaine Crochet ‘Chêne Marchand’ Sancerre Blanc
Loire, France. 2013. Aromatic citrus fruit and orange peel jump from the glass. The palate is fresh and structured with striking minerality.Bottle
Soft and Rounded Whites
Typically, this style of white wine isn’t always noticeably aromatic; tending to be slightly more full-bodied and in some cases, containing a little less prominent acidity than other categories. Given their structure, they lend themselves to partnering slightly heavier dishes than other styles. One of the more versatile white styles in our list, “rounded” whites can match a wide range of foods. Enjoy with fish, salads and light risottos, or simply on their own.

France, 2014. The remarkable stony soils of the vineyards of Chablis are captured in this powerful and complex wine. Flourishing with age, this beautiful wine expresses mineral aromas, reminiscent of gunflint.Bottle
Rich and Full Whites
Styles of this category tend to fall on the “weightier” end of the scale in terms of body and are ideal for those who prefer full, creamy and mouth-filling wines. Invariably, these varieties will have usually undergone some degree of barrel fermentation or ageing and tend to be derived from grape varieties known for their ability to produce rich, mouth-coating wine. Wines such as these are able to partner strong flavoured food such as char-grilled and smoked meats, salmon and even pork.
Bodegas Luis Cañas Rioja Blanco
Rioja, Spain. 2015. A beautifully balanced example of a white Rioja that combines both old and new styles. Vibrant, citrusy Viura is blended with weightier Malvasia that undergoes brief barrel maturation adds a honeyed, structural roundness.Bottle
Abruzzo, Italy. 2015. Previously thought to be extinct, the Pecorino grape was found growing wild in the Marche region.

Full bodied and markedly pungent, this is a huge step up from classic Viognier.

Domaine Muzard et Fils Puligny Montrachet
Burgundy, France. 2013. Straw yellow in colour with the pronounced aromas of smoky almond often associated with the rich, significant styles of Puligny-Montrachet.Bottle
Light, Elegant and Easy Reds
Red wines within this section display fresh fruit aromas and a softness that makes them great to drink both on their own or with lighter styles of food. Whilst lovers of “big” reds may
sometimes leave these styles overlooked, they do deserve a place on every wine list. The juicy fruit flavours and intrinsic, refreshing acidity of these reds allow them to be a suitable match for many varieties of food including poultry, pastas and creamy cheese.
Vina Mariposa Tinto
Spain, 2015. Tempranillo is one of the most widely grown grape varieties in Spain as well as the main grape variety in Rioja. Capable of creating a range of styles, here it is blended with subtle amounts of Grenache, resulting in flavours of strawberry and plum with hints of spice.

Burgundy, France. 2014. This fine, elegant Clos du Chapitre is a classically Burgundian style of Pinot Noir. Aromas of red and black fruit dominate the nose with violets and cherry in abundance. Fine, supple tannins and a refreshing acidity on the palate make this a truly remarkable wine.Bottle
Spicy and Rounded Reds
“Spicy” reds cover a wide range of grape varieties, aromas and flavours. These wines are characterised by medium tannins and generally possess a softer, more rounded mouth feel. Spicy, rounded wines are therefore suitable for a wide range of foods ranging from poultry to lighter red meat dishes such as lamb, through to charcuterie.
Eagle’s Cliff Pinotage
Breede River, South Africa. 2015. An eager nose of sweet tobacco, plum and blackberry develops into a spicy, bodied mouth-feel at tasting. A productive grape with great tenacity and length.

Yarra Valley, Australia. 2013. This excellent, award-winning wine offers a wonderful bouquet of flavour and aromas. Syrah, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are blended to formulate a punchy nose of violet, exotic spice and black fruit with an embracing and structural finish.Bottle
Full bodied reds are mouth-coating; a result of wine made from ‘weightier’ grape varieties or wine that has spent some time in oak barrels. Usually containing moderate to high levels of tannin, wines such as these cover a wide spectrum of colours; not just deep red. Furthermore, they make more than suitable partners to stronger foods. Try with red meats such as beef and venison, or with hard cheese and chocolate.
Mendoza, Argentina. 2015. In the right hands of a quality producer, Malbec can produce wonderfully rich, full flavoured reds with a velvet-like texture. Located in the premier zone of Lujan de Cuyo, Incayal creates a complex wine loaded with plums, spice and hints of vanilla.
