Tasted October 2012

WHITE ITALY

Pietrariccia Fiano 2011
£8.99 Buy 2 save £4 = £6.99
Rich, spicy, herbal nose. Very spicy taste and it needs food because there just isn’t enough acidity to carry it alone.

Falanghina Terredora 2011
£10.99 Buy 2 save £6 = £7.99
Very spicy nose. Intense, bright, sharp with a long, herbal aftertaste. Good. *


WHITE LOIRE


La Grille Touraine Sauvignon 2011
£7.49 Buy 2 save £3 = £5.99
Wow. Very intense cat aroma. Almost eye watering. Actually, it’s a bit stinky as well. Don’t like this at all. Very sour.

Pouilly Fume Cascadelles 2011
£11.99 Buy 2 save £6 = £8.99 Dec Promo
Ripe and appealing nose. Very savoury taste. Quite textured and with a dry finish.

Vouvray Domaine des Aubuisieres 2011
£9.99 Buy 2 save £2 = £8.99
Not much aroma. A hint of fizz and quite warm alcohol for Vouvray. Bone dry.


WHITE FRENCH REGIONAL

Picpoul de Villemarin 2011
£7.99 Buy 2 save £4 = £5.99
Low on aroma. Very savoury and dry. Needs food.

Dom St Ferreol Viognier 2010
£12.49 Buy 2 save £5 = £9.99
Beautifully rich, oaky, aroma. Really draws you in. Big, rich and exciting wine. I’d shave 1% off the alcohol, but I think that’s my problem. Good wine.


WHITE BURGUNDY

Petit Chablis CVC 2011
£9.99 Buy 2 save £2 = £8.99
Pleasant lemony nose. Bright, sharp and dry.

Chablis 2011, Domaine Servin
£12.99 Buy 2 save £6 = £9.99 Dec Promo
A little creamier than the Petit Chablis. Vibrant palate. Plenty of taste and texture.

Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2011
£19.99 Buy 2 save £4 = £17.99
Lemony aroma. Quite textured, but lacking the ripeness and creaminess you might expect from 1er cru.

Bourgogne Chardonnay Château de Jacques 2010
£12.99 Buy 2 save £6 = £9.99
Little aroma. A touch of oak, some fruit. Nice enough balance.

Pouilly Fuisse Domaine Cordier 2011
£16.99 Cordier Offer = £15.99
Ripe and exciting nose. Ripe and oaky. The alcohol’s a bit fierce.

Pernand Vergelesses Jadot 2010
£19.99 Buy 2 save £4 = £17.99
Sweet, dried fruit aroma. Lovely – really inviting. Delicious taste. Perfect fruit/oak balance. Savoury finish. Love it. *


WHITE SPAIN


Rioja Blanco 2011, Muga
£10.99 Buy 2 save £4 = £8.99
Nicely green nose. Very savoury and oaky taste. Chewy oak. Lovely with herbal starters.

WHITE NEW ZEALAND

Ragged Point Sauvignon Blanc 2012
£7.99£7.49 Buy 2 save 20% = £5.99
Lovely gooseberry aroma. Dry and very savoury. Really green and sharp.

The Ned Black Label Sauvignon Blanc 2012
£9.99£8.74 Buy 2 save 20% = £6.99
Note new name. Appears to be the same as original. Catty and bright aroma. Sharp and bright with tart gooseberry and grapefruit. Good.

Parcel Series Sauvignon 2011
£9.99 Buy 2 save 20% = £7.99
Creamy, sweet nose. There’s a lot of texture here and sweet fruit. I prefer The Ned.

Te Mata Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc 2011
£19.99 Buy 2 save 20% = £15.99
Really stinky. Like silver polish. Swirled it a lot and some lifted, leaving some weight, perhaps some vanilla. Very oaky taste. Think Te Koko.

Fairleigh Estate Riesling 2011
£8.99£8.74 Buy 2 save 20% = £6.99
A grapefruit zest aroma. This has a little residual sugar and is very zesty and pithy. Good price when reduced.


WHITE AUSTRALIA

Parcel Series Riesling 2006
£9.99£8.74 Buy 2 save 20% = £6.99
Very forward on the nose. Loads of petrol. Tart and absolutely delicious. *


WHITE CHILE

LFE Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2011
£9.99 Buy 2 save 20% = £7.99
£9.99£8.74 Buy 2 save 20% = £6.99 Dec Promo
Fruity, lemony nose. Too much texture for me.

Montes Alpha Chardonnay 2010
£12.99£12.49 Buy 2 save 20% = £9.99
£12.99£11.24 Buy 2 save 20% = £8.99 Dec Promo
Nice ripe fruit on the nose. Sweet, oaky and with warm alcohol. Not for me.

WHITE ALSACE

Schlumberger Riesling 2009
£13.99 Buy 2 save £6 = £10.99
Little aroma. A little sweetness initially. Riesling texture, but after the Aus it seems to be lacking
