Chemins de Gascogne Cotes de Gascogne
Truly the most versatile white we saw in in the entire tasting line up! This wine from the foothills of the Pyrenees holds appeal for both sauvignon and chardonnay drinkers alike. In the south-west of France life is simple and joyful. Its also a perfect way to describe the Chemins de Gascogne. Located in the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, the vineyards are subject to very warm summer days and very cool nights. The grapes are harvested during September in the dead of night to preserve the aromatics. The wine, a blend of chardonnay and the local colombard grape, exhibits every bit of this labour of love. Our golden child from south-west France, we were blown away by this textured and zippy white with its unique orchard fruit flavours. Simply delicious!
Coriole Chenin Blanc
This variety made famous by the Loire Valley is starting to gain a footing in Australia. Coriole Chenin Blanc is fresh and elegant on the palate, comprising pineapple and gooseberry fruits with an attractive smoky finish.
Paul Conti Chenin Blanc
The bouquet exhibits lifted tropical fruit flavours with hints of citrus. A generous round palate is enhanced by fresh natural acidity and a long clean finish.
Amberley Chimney Brush Chenin Blanc
Aromas of ripe red apple and tropical fruits jump out of the glass of Amberley Chimney Brush Chenin Blanc. Lovely Pineapple and lychee flavours fill the palate. Can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with spicy Asian dishes.
Pierre Brevin Vouvray
A pale yellow coloured wine with golden reflections. An expressive bouquet with notes of flowers and ripe fruit (citrus, quince) leading to aromas of honey. The attack is fresh, the palate round and full; it has a great balance between sugar and acidity with a finish ending on notes of dried fruits.
Paul Conti Tuart Block Chenin Blanc

The scintillating bouquet of this wine exhibits lifted aromas of tropical fruit, with hints of apricot and peach. The generous and round palate is enhanced by clean and fresh acidity, and a lengthy finish. This wine is a perfect accompaniment to Mediterranean dishes like a traditional antipasto, fresh natural oysters, or grilled seafood.
