Crisp, dry Rieslings, punchy Sauvignon Blancs and fabulous Chardonnays that run the whole gamut of styles from elegant and austere to rich and buttery – these are just a few of the wonderful whites you’ll find in our selection. Australian white wines have never been better with the wines of regions such as Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills and Hunter Valley garnering praise around the world. Throw in our favourite imported whites too and you’ll always find the perfect wine, whatever the occasion.
Vibrant nose with so many layers to it; mineral, stony notes mingle alongside gooseberry leaf, citrus, yellow plum plus a marzipan richness. The barrel-ageing really comes to the fore on the palate with a beautiful creamy, leesy texture and depth of flavour, showing notes of fresh grapefruit, stone fruits and nutty brulee hints balanced by the steely acidity and savoury grassy notes. Definitely a food wine.

A striking, crystalline nose reminiscent of Riesling promises something really quite special. The uber-complex aroma evolves from floral to spice to orange peel. This wine has real ‘wow’ factor – the vintage seems to really hit its stride at demi-sec level. This is a wine of impeccable balance between honeyed richness and purity of fruit. Whilst there is sweetness, the wine is exceptionally pure and light on its feet. So incredibly moreish.

The immaculate aromas of fresh almonds and citrus will sweep you off your feet. With its linear and smooth profile, this wine offers long persistence with a fresh and mineral character. There is a delicate creaminess as well which makes it an elegant wine.

Château d'Yquem has a very long life span: twenty, fifty, a hundred years, or more … As with all great wines, Yquem is transfigured over time, developing a host of deliciously subtle aromas and flavours. Its colour changes over the years from the brightness of dawn to the darkness of dusk, and from shimmering straw yellow to golden-brown with amber and caramel highlights, and then to mahogany.
