Christmas 2021 Small Wonders White Case
Elegant, crystalline pinot blanc from Austria's mother of biodynamics and minimal intervention. This variety has a long history in the Burgenland region and this is a fine example, with notes of lemon, pear and flint. Particularly inviting and generous in the cool 2020 vintage.
Seriously classy New Zealand sauvignon. A little time in bottle has mellowed the wine and introduced a beeswax character and a hint of maturity to the aroma, which sits alongside the wonderful bright and fresh primary lychee and quince fruit and white pepper. That freshness flows on to the palate with beautifully integrated and vibrant lemony notes, allowing the fruit to come more to the fore while the waxy, oily notes initially take more of a back seat only to reappear, intriguingly, on the finish. This wine is a Museum Release: thanks to our member-owned co-operative model, our buyers are able to buy wines to mature in the perfect conditions of our temperature-controlled cellars and release them when they are ready to enjoy.
Another serial Wine Champion, Spain’s most historic albariño producer knocked our collective socks off with their 2020. Everything you could want of this popular grape is here and in pitch-perfect proportion: crisp, soft and appley, with just the right amount of weight on the palate and a very long finish. Wonderful.
This is one of the best ever vintages of this fine-flavoured white Burgundy, which is unoaked to preserve its mineral freshness. It comes from a cool spot in Chasselas, which has succeeded in producing a fresh and beautifully balanced wine in this warm year.
A masterful food-friendly blend from the heart of the Corbières – majority roussanne with a little marsanne and grenache blanc – making for a full-flavoured but crisp, herbal-tinged white of boundless charm and individuality.
The second wine of the Dubourdieu family's distinctive Clos Floridène, the 2018 is 62% semillon, with 26% sauvignon blanc and 12% muscadelle completing the blend. The wine was part-barrel fermented to make a refined, peachy white for the dinner table. A good example of the excellent value that white Bordeaux can provide.
