Society Whites Case
The Society's Australian Chardonnay 2021
Australian chardonnay made exclusively for us by Wirra Wirra, the quality of the 2021 vintage shines through here and thanks to tweaked winemaking this wine is better than ever. The nose is fresh; white fruit, citrus and flint-driven and the palate is crisp, textured and refreshing. Smart and focused chardonnay.
The Society's Chilean Limarí Sauvignon Blanc 2021
This is a crisp Chilean sauvignon blanc with blackcurrant-leaf aromas and a refreshing palate. Produced by Tabalí from cool vineyards in Limarí.
The Society's Falanghina 2021
Sourced from the La Guardiense cooperative (‘they give us the best stuff,’ revealed Sebastian Payne MW), this is an expressive white loaded with tangy nectarine and tangerine, and further evidence that Italian whites are better than ever. No surprise that it was voted a 2022 Wine Champion by our tasters.
The Society's English White 2021
Our flagship English white comes from Three Choirs in Gloucestershire, from the refreshing and aromatic 2021 vintage, with aromas of white-fruits, citrus and gooseberry, and a light, structured and pure palate. A blend of Madeleine Angevine, solaris, orion, seyval blanc, reichensteiner and bacchus, this is a delicious dry white and a real success story from such a tricky English vintage.
The Society's Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc 2021
A refreshing, flavoursome white from the southern Rhône and made for us by the enterprising Perrin family of Beaucastel fame. This would be good with fish and chips or a pasta carbonara.
The Society's Côtes de Gascogne 2021
Noticeably drier in this vintage, this is fragrant, light, crisp Gascon white with a slight refreshing prickle. There is a hint of citrus on the palate that is more grapefruit than lemon. Light enough to be perfect on its own or with summery salads.
The Society's Ruppertsberg 2021
The co-operative movement has historically been important in Germany and Ruppertsberg is easily one of the best. This full, fruity dry white is made using a majority of silvaner for body and a little riesling for citrusy fruit and grip. A versatile white to be enjoyed with or without food.
The Society's Vinho Verde 2021
A classic example of this light and easy-drinking style from northern Portugal, with delicate spritz and a bright, fresh palate.
The Society's Grüner Veltliner 2021
A textbook grüner from the historic Stadt Krems winery, all succulent pear and white-pepper aromas, nectarine notes on the palate and a refreshing spritz that whets the appetite.
The Society’s Vin d’Alsace 2020
An introduction to the wines of this beautiful region of France, rather than being made from a single grape variety, this is a blend of riesling, gewurztraminer, pinot gris, muscat and sylvaner which varies a little by vintage. The 2020 is fresh, delicately aromatic, and dry.
The Society's Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch 2022
Hot off the boat, our chenin is made for us by the Grier family at Villiera Estate on the border of Paarl and Stellenbosch, from their own sustainably farmed old bush vines - some over 30 years old - which provide a richer component to which an earlier-picked lighter proportion is added to deliver its familiar bright stone-fruit flavour.
The Society's Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine sur Lie 2021
Classic Muscadet from Chéreau-Carré and a tiny vintage producing very pure wine with racy acidity, this is the perfect accompaniment to shellfish and crustaceans.
