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
Maxime Cheurlin was brought down from the family Champagne business, to attend to the Cote de Nuits burgundies. A pretty, soft wine, friendly, good.

Northern Piedmont, on the slopes planted with vineyards of the Bramaterra estate in the town of Villa del Bosco
A wine of age-old tradition, with a marked personality
Breggo Gewurztraminer 2011 California. The 2011 Gewurztraminer is loaded with beautiful aromatics of rose petal and tropical fruit. Hints of honeysuckle and lychee add depth to the nose.The tropical and floral flavours continue in the mouth with notes of pineapple, lemongrass, and spice. The cool vintage is reflected in the bright acidity and clean finish of this delicious wine.
Borgo del Tiglio
Collio Chardonnay DOC
The wine has a boquet reminiscent of melted butter and cream, sometimes even with a touch of vanilla or coffee that floats above the delicate scent of tropical fruits. The wine is incredibly balanced and has the potential to be cellared over two decades.
