Vietti Roero Arneis 2020

Vietti produces a large range of wines, all made from the indigenous grape varieties of Piemonte.  This wine is made from 100% Arneis sourced from vineyards located in the heart of the Roero area (in Santo Stefano Roero).  A slow fermentation in stainless steel preserves the freshness and intensity of the fruit and the wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation. 

Straw yellow colour with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almond.  Dry, medium-bodied wine with crisp acidity.  Well-balanced, elegant with good complexity and a lingering finish.

Niepoort Drink Me Tinto 2019

A red with purity grown on hostile schist vineyards in the Douro.  Drink Me is the creation of a pleasant, easy drinking red wine yet keeping complexity, mineral notes and great depth, like a classic wine from the region.  A number of native varieties, including Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Amarela, are blended to perfection by the legendary Dirk Niepoort.  This wine exhibits authentic Portuguese dark cherry and liquorice notes on the nose but with a tight, modern freshness on the palate.

Dönnhoff Tonschiefer Trocken Riesling 2020

The best wines from the Nahe region of Germany have been described as having the elegance of the Rheingau, the body of a Rheinhessen and the acidity of a Mosel.  And Helmut Dönnhoff is known for producing some of the finest Riesling wines from this region.

Dönnhoff’s vineyards are planted to Riesling (80%), Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris (20%).  The fruit for this wine is mainly sourced from the Oberhauser Leistenberg vineyard.  It’s soil is grey, carbon-laced decomposed argillaceous slate or “Tonschiefer” for which this wine is named.  (And, for those not paying attention last month, “Trocken” mean dry!)

Fine and elegant with delicate peach and citrus aromas, but also unusually powerful for the humble category and this producer.  This wine has a ong, ripe and crisp finish. The grapes are grown organically and the wine holds the ‘Fair’n Green’ certification.

Niepoort Dócil Loureiro Vinho Verde 2020

Another wine from Niepoort, the Dócil is made from the highly aromatic Loureiro variety grown in granitic soils in the Vinho Verde appellation from the Minho region of Portugal.  Farming is both sustainable and organic.

The wine shows crisp and citrus-driven flavors marked by mineral-laced acidity and striking structure.  This wine embodies summer - elegant, light, alive and refreshing.  Uncork this bottle tonight!
