Gewürztraminer, Little Beauty, 2010Our price: £16.50Little Beauty vineyards are situated next to the Wahopai River and face the famous and picturesque Richmond Range. They are sheltered but have taken advantage of their northwest orientation which ensures excellent ripening conditions. Jason is the viticulturist and Eveline is the winemaker, who used to be the senior winemaker at Cloudy Bay. The wines literally are little beauties. Under the careful management of Eveline, the wine making process delivers true Marlborough wines, however, they are exquisitely elegant and feminine, the flavours are expressive but refined and they will either be enjoyed on their own, or they will be capable of matching very sophisticated food. Gewurztraminer Tradition, Domaine Albert Mann, 2012/2013, OrganicOur price: £19.55This well regarded Alsace domaine is run by two brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé in the village of Wettolsheim, near Colmar. Maurice, who took over here in 1984, is married to the daughter of the late Albert Mann who gave his name to the domaine. It’s not a huge operation: they have 22 hectares in all, but five of these are in five different Grand Cru vineyards and a further two are in lieux-dits. Domaine Albert Mann is organic.Gewurztraminer, Insight 2011Our price: £11.24Blessed with unique climatic and topographical conditions perfect for cool climate grape production, Marlborough is able to produce wines that are intensely aromatic and flavourful - they’re a complete sensory experience.

Therefore, through the unusual label design, Insight aims to provide the wine drinker with added-value cues and information about the origin of the wine, what they might smell and taste in the wine and what foods would match well. Insight takes a potentially intimidating topic and makes it approachable and informative. Montes Limited Selection, Late Harvest Gewurztraminer, 2012Our price: £11.00The Montes estate in Chile, run by Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, is a natural treasure, undoubtedly providing the benchmark for other Chilean wine producers in terms of quality and global appeal. Soli White, Edoardo Miroglio, 2013Our price: £9.60Miroglio was started by the wine loving Edoardo Miroglio, an Italian textile producer, who painstakingly searched for land in Bulgaria that would produce the right conditions to make elegant complex Pinot Noir. After two years they settled on the micro-region of Elonovo, in the Eastern Thracian Valley that was found to be similar to many of the soil and climatic conditions of Burgundy. The terroir is argillaceous limestone, tending to sandy; leached maroon woodland soils, with good fertility. The humus layer is 0.80 – 1.50 m deep, with rocks underneath, allowing good drainage. The climate is characterized by a good balance between hot days and cool nights, a relatively cool summer with regular breezes. The head winemaker is Dessislava Baicheva, a lady, who is assisted by Marco Monchiero. The viticulturist is Alberto La Rosa, who for three years was with the great Barolo producer Luciano Sandrone. He was attracted to Miroglio in Bulgaria specifically because he could see the potential was fantastic to make elegant balanced Pinot Noir that would age. Anything else was a bonus, and there have been many. Of particular interest to Alberto is Mavrud, which he has found is likely to be a predecessor of Nebbiolo. Since then he has been busily propagating various clones of Mavrud which are producing some astonishing wine. The aromatic white grapes grow well here, such as Viognier, Gewürztraminer and Muscat. He is also developing the organic vineyards of the property and in due course it is likely to all become certified organic.
