Californian winemakers are famous worldwide for what might politely be termed their 'eccentricity'. Michael Borboa, the man responsible for this delightful Chardonnay, is no exception. This is a fresh, linear style of Chardonnay - citrusy and bright rather than blousey and excessive.
A deliciously intriguing Viognier. Grown in perfect conditions that allow the grapes a long, cool ripening season, all thanks to the unique micro-climate of the Lodi region of Central California. A beautifully textured wine with layers of peach fruit, fragrant floral nuances and a touch of spice.
Type: Chardonnay blend
The winemaking family behind this white gem are well ahead of the curve - they've been practising sustainable viticulture long before it became fashionable. So it's no surprise that this perfect combo of citrusy Chardonnay and fragrant Viognier has a purity and clarity unlike many mass-produced blends.
Experience a wine with a conscience. The Kautz Family, 4th generation growers, have over 5000 acres of vineyards planted in the Californian Sierra Foothills and have been practicing sustainable viticulture for over thirty years. Their wine is a journey in itself - pure and packed with flavour.
Californian sunshine in a glass! White Zinfandel grapes from old vine vineyards in the Lodi region of central California bring you this pretty in pink delight. Aromas of strawberries and cream are followed by a light, fruity palate.
Type: Merlot blends
Discover creamy, blueberry pie notes on the nose, with moments of exotic spice and liquorice too. This is a superbly mouth-watering, aromatic wine with a not-too-heavy feel - very neat and professional! Discover in your glass the very best attributes of Merlot and Shiraz - quite the rarity!
Type: Cabernet Franc
Dive in and you'll find this intrepid bear a very engaging companion indeed. With a more violet and plum-soaked spectrum on the nose and less butch blackcurrant notes than a Napa Valley Cab Sauv, this is a very attractive and capable red. A cracker from Michael Borboa and his Lodi team.
Type: Viognier blend
This wine is not from a big-hitting named area, like Napa and Sonoma, but does attract some great winemakers who form the vanguard of winemaking in the States. Welcome to Lodi. Created from equal parts Viognier and Verdelho, (chalk and cheese) this wine is the perfect marriage of two stunning parcels of fruit.
Type: Sauvignon Blanc
If you often find US Sauvignons a little too 'in-your-face' and richly flavoured - this will be a pleasant surprise! It's a different kettle of fish, being immediately subtle, lifted and refreshing on the palate. A deft Sauvignon that just begs to be drunk.
Type: Syrah / Shiraz blend
This is mould-breaking wine, at a game changing price for the quality. The Americans love exciting, whacky labelling and we are so confident in the juice itself that we've gone off-piste with the presentation. Beneath the clothing stirs near priceless Zinfandel and premium Shiraz.
