2013 PINOT GRIGIO Vallagarina Cantina Valdadige
Straw yellow in colour with a fruity, floral, distinctive nose. A dry, fresh and persistent palate, perfect as an aperitif or with vegetable starters and delicate soups.
2013 ALVARINO Terras d'Alter

DELICIOSA MANZANILLA Valdespino
Light, pale, fresh, crisp, a delightful summer aperitif, and like the Inocente, should be tried with fish, which it accompanies much better than many of the classic matches (Chablis, Sancerre etc...).

Another year, another delicious Soave from Pieropan – and we're only (if that's the word) talking about the straight Classico, rather than either of the single-vineyard bottlings. It has a lovely... ( more info )
2013 PETIT CHABLIS Domaine Moreau-Naudet
Stéphane has a good parcel of well-established vines in Petit Chablis and this cuvée always has a bright and breezy, slightly saline 'coastal' freshness.
2013 GRECANTE Grechetto Colli Martani Arnaldo-Caprai
The 2013 Grecante is a brilliant return to its best. An old favourite of ours - this year Grecante really delivers everything you could wish for. Perky and bright but in a lovely smooth mineral way... ( more info )
