The Vineking Organics
2015 Domaine de L'Aumonier Touraine Sauvignon Blanc Loire France
I have always been a big fan of the Aumonier wines ever since we visited the Chandon family, who are the producers of this great no nonsense wine, at the Angers Wine Fair in the Loire. A trip that Erik and myself only just survived due to a couple of lorries and a lack of road to overtake ! The lengths we go to bring our wonderful customers great wine! This SB has lovely white fruit intensity with racy acidity and good length of flavour. Miles better than a cheap Sancerre!

2013 Reyneke Organic Syrah Stellenbosch South Africa
'The intention here is to interfere as little as possible, to allow nature to be the real maker of the wine and to truly produce terroir-specific wines of the highest quality’. This is how the owner Johan dscribes his ethos for making his wines. With the winemaker from Boekenhoutskloof and the vineyard manager from Gaston Huet in Vouvray as a consultant this wine has impressive pedigree. Underpriced in my mind as the wine is so well focussed with red and black fruits ripe tannins and masses of complexity.
