South Bound Reserve Western Cape Sauvignon Blanc 2012 8.99
Western Cape

Not a great deal of aroma. A hint of sauvignon. Tart and bright. Dry. One shade of ripeness above Loire sauvignon.

Vinazza Garganega Pinot Grigio 2011 7.99
Veneto
Garganega, Pinot Grigio
12.50%
Savoury aroma. Low on acid, spicy and savoury.  Ideal to serve with herby starters. 

Woolundry Road Margaret River Riesling 2011 9.99
Margaret River

Pithy, lime and grapefruit aroma. A touch of residual ripeness but the bright acidity more than compensates.  Good.

The Vinitor Viognier Verdelho 2011 10.99
Lodi
Viognier, Verdelho
13.50%
Nice catty nose. Inviting. This wine has a degree of weight, a hint of sweetness, and some spice on the finish. 

Famille Perrin Luberon Blanc 2011 9.99
Luberon
Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino
13.50%
Spicy, southern aroma.  Spicy, southern taste as well.  Savoury, not fruity and without sharp acidity.  It is exactly what it is.

De Martino 347 Limari Chardonnay 2010 9.99
Limari
Chardonnay
13.50%
Very, very ripe nose.  Rich vanilla and heavy tropical fruit aroma.  There's a hint of oak texture, but it isn't an oaky wine.  It has the freshness of cool Limari, but with a hit of alcohol.

La Multa Blanco 2011 9.99
Calatayud
Grenache Blanc
14.00%
Not much aroma. Sweet and fruity. Not my sort of wine.

Kirriemuir Reserve Old Vine Single Vineyard Barossa Semillon 2012 11.99
Barossa Valley
Semillon
12.00%
Very sweet, ripe nose.  Almost like late harvest. Drier than expected but really fruity.

Billy Bosch Reserve Stellenbosch Semillon Sauvignon 2012 9.99
Stellenbosch
Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc
12.50%
Green, clean aroma. Sharp, bright and very drinkable indeed.  Quite savoury, not ripely fruity. I'd serve this as an aperitif.

Castillo de la Luna Rueda Verdejo 2011 8.49
Rueda
Verdejo
13.00%
Spicy, savoury nose - catty and herbal. Bright but a little astringent and with a bitter aftertaste. Better with food.

16 Little Black Pigs Chardonnay 2011 9.99
South Australia
Chardonnay
12.00%
Cute name. Light, pineapple nose. Similar taste.  Refreshing.  Not bad.

Isola delle Fiamma Catarratto 2011 9.49
Sicily
Catarratto
11.00%
Spicy and interesting nose. Really draws you in. There's a bit of structure. Might have thought there was some oak in there, but maybe just skin contact and the variety. Perfumed, peachy fruit.  Interesting.

High Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2011 9.99
Western Cape
Sauvignon Blanc
13.50%
Very savoury and mineral aroma.  Instantly attractive. Bone dry with a bitter aftertaste.  Needs food.

Bowyer Ridge Single Vineyard Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2011 10.99
Adelaide Hills
Sauvignon Blanc
11.50%
Low on aroma, but smells ripe. Nice, fresh, green taste.  Light and refreshing.

Domaine Saint Hilaire Viognier 2011  9.99
Languedoc
Viognier
14.00%
Creamy and fruity nose. Weighty, with the typical kernal bitterness of viognier.  Typical.

Irius 100ft Somontano Gewurztraminer 2011 10.99
Somontano
Gewurztraminer
13.00%
Very light aroma, for Gewurztraminer. There is a hint of GWT on the palate, but almost like an Alsace pinot gris. I think this wine has an interesting flavour.  Not typical, but sometimes GWT can be too much. 

Seraph Reserve Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2010 9.99
Touraine
Sauvignon Blanc

Smelly, cabbage nose.  Off dry with a cabbage flavour.
