|301. 2014 Saumur Blanc, Cave de Saumur - LOIRE
A cornerstone Saumur - Quaffable, consistent Chenin blanc - lovely, zesty, un-oaked
Chenin Blanc with bags of ripe fruit and a clean, dry finish.
A refreshing, fruity, bon marché crowd-pleaser that I’m sure will become a firm favourite.
|302. 2011 Riesling Mitchell - CLARE VALLEY, AUSTRALIA
Crisp acidity and a long lingering fruit finish. Classic Riesling ‘petrolly’ nose.

|329. 2013 White Rabbit Riesling, BALTHASAR RESS - RHEIN, GERMANY
Only 8.5% ABV this multifaceted Riesling is versatile with or without food. Redolent of grass and herbs; here and there, a whiff of white blossoms and tropical fruit. Balanced and beautifully refreshing – more medium dry but definitely not sugar water – a must try for anyone yet to be convinced by German wine.
|320. 2010 Riesling, DR THANISCH - MOSEL, GERMANY
This wine is extremely well structured with a deep golden colour and powerful but also elegant characteristics.
|327. 2011 Riesling Kabinett, JOH. JOS.PRÜM, - MOSEL, GERMANY
Kabinett literally meaning “cabinet” as in a reserve wine to be kept in the vintner’s cabinet. The wine is made from fully ripened grapes to produce a residual sweetness but with a crisp clean acidity.

Intense floral and ripe fruit fragrance, deep and viscous on the palate with just enough acid to keep it balanced
