Summer wine perfection in a bottle. From the mecca of Albarino production, Rias Baixas in Galicia, this wine is just delicious! Dry and crisp with saline minerality apparent from the close proximity to the Atlantic ocean, and buckets of ripe stoned fruit. The perfect pairing for any seafood, especially shellfish, yes BBQ prawns. A real peach!
100% unoaked Viura. Clean, fresh and attractive nose showing hints of ripe peach and pear. Ripe, savoury and an almost creamy palate cut through with a refreshing streak of zesty acidity. Lifted floral and citrus notes on the nose. The palate has orchard fruits, ripe melon.
Vibrant plum and cherry aromas combine with woody, herbal notes. The palate is complex with juicy bramble fruit, black pepper, and lifted, savoury characters.
A blend of 29% Chenin Blanc, 23% Roussanne, 11% Viognier, 11% Chardonnay, 10% Grenache Blanc, 5% Colombard, 5% Grenache Gris, 2% Semillon, 2% Verdelho and 2% Clairette Blanche. There are two kinds of people in the world. The first kind will say "Wow! That sounds exciting!". The second kind will count up all the percentages and make sure they add up to 100%. Which are you? If you find you are now reading this with a calculator in your hand, then this is probably not the wine for you. If you are licking your lips at the prospect of such an exciting cocktail of varieties, then this wine should be right up your street. To make a tuneful melody from so many disparate elements takes a clever conductor and Adi Badenhorst has his orchestra playing in wonderful harmony. Cool, undertated peach and nectarine vie with lively citrus and sour honey flavours in this full-bodied, intriguing, complex wine that will age beautifully for another 5-6 years
Intriguing and with a complex nose of dried cherries, black berries and fig. Balanced savoury notes with cherry, dried orange peel characters and sweet spice. Balanced acidity, impressive structure and a long finish.
This is a modern style Barbera from a top cru. Deep in colour, dense meaty berry fruits and spice on the nose. It's rich and ripe with some lovely bitter sweet flavours and good acidity too. There are chocolate hints on the palate and toasty oak with spice. It's a powerful wine but with great fruit and is made in a natural style with no use of sulphur.
Dark garnet core, brilliant clarity in the glass. Intense, effusively luscious flavors of ripe red berries with caramelised notes of fig, cherry, and plum, elegantly woven together in barrel. Long-finishing and tannically vivid, yet with a remarkably soft

Aldo Vajra’s wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes
Brilliant and finely sculpted on the palate, the 2010 dazzles from the very first taste.
Expressive, floral notes give way to bright red fruit, mint and crushed berries in a vibrant, striking Barolo.
In most vintages, Le Albe is juicy and fruit-driven, but in 2010 it is above all the wine‘s minerality that shines through.
"The 2010 wines are a jump into both the past and future of Piemonte," says Giuseppe Vaira. "They offer a return to balanced fruit, a savoury mid-palate and a racy, long finish. Nebbiolo is tight yet disclosing a wide aromatic spectrum already."
