Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The unique blends of grapes in this wine results in silkiness and fruit purity. A brilliant, yellow-green wine with a floral, apple complexity on the nose, intensely fruity and elegant, and a harmonious, soft mouthfeel.

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

Tasted at Prince Wine Store (South Melbourne (RP AUD$120). Clear, pale lemon colour. A clean nose, med+ intensity aromas of almond, white peach and nectarine. A dry, med+ bodied white wine with a smooth velvety texture, zesty and carrying more weight than a typical chardonnay. A well-balanced wine with appropriate amount of fruity acidity. Fleshy fruit flavours of peach and honeyed spices. Nice finish. Drink now – 2017. 92/100.

£14.22 2011 http://www.montalbera.it/eng/ruche.php Società Agricola Montalbera S.r.l. - via Montalbera, 1 - 14030 Castagnole Monferrato (At) ITALY - montalbera@montalbera.it £14.22 2011 Quite light. Not very serious since it starts out being very fruity. But then it moves on to give that classic Piedmont depth; this is true especially after its left open for a while/day. Overall its too (in a strange way) fruity for me. Perhaps the 2 rating is a bit harsh but not by much; I think I can find much better.

Silvaner Wellenkalk Spätlese trocken Langenberg 2009 - Weingut Rudolf May: Silvaner Wellenkalk Spätlese trocken "Langenberg" 2009 - Weißwein vom Weingut Rudolf MayMitten im Herzstück vom Langenberg wachsen die Trauben für diesen kräftigen Silvaner auf einem 40 Jahre alten Weinberg. Der Wellenkalk ist eine spezielle Gesteinsform des unteren Muschelkalks. Durch ihn werden die Weine tiefgründiger, kräftiger und mineralischer.Bei der Weinlese 2009 konnten 100% kleine, goldgelbe, reife und vor allem gesunde Beeren zur Maische in die Kelter gebracht werden, darin verblieben sie 12 Stunden. Der Silvaner Wellenkalk Spätlese trocken Langenberg 2009 vom Weingut Rudolf May präsentiert sich sehr vielschichtig mit deutlichen Hefenoten sowie mineralischen und kräutrigen Aromen. Dazu gesellt sich eine schöne Frucht, die an Mango erinnert. Mit seinem feingliedrigen Körper ist er ein vielseitiger Begleiter zu Tisch, besonders zu empfehlen ist dieser Silvaner zu gegrilltem Fisch oder Wildgeflügel.Weingut: Rudolf May    Land: DeutschlandRegion: FrankenRebsorte: 100% SilvanerInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Gesamtsäure: 5,6 g/lRestsüße: 0,8 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 8-10 °CLagerfähigkeit: 2 Jahre ab Jahrgang Franken

Sauvignon Blanc trocken 2009 (1l) - Herrenberg - Lergenmüller : Sauvignon Blanc trocken 2009 (1l) - Weißwein von Herrenberg - Lergenmüller Dieser Weißwein zeigt eine ganz typische Sauvignon Nase nach frisch gemähtem Gras, grünen Stachelbeeren und ein wenig Johannisbeeren. Er ist lebendig, frisch mit Saft und Kraft und viel aromatischem Spiel. Am Gaumen erinnert dieser Sauvignon Blanc von Herrenberg - Lergenmüller wieder an frisch gemähtes Gras, Heu, Stachelbeeren, aber auch Aprikosen kommen ins Spiel. Der Gesamteindruck bleibt schlank und ausgewogen und damit ergibt sich ein perfekter und unkomplizierter Terrassenwein.Weingut: Herrenberg - LergenmüllerLand: DeutschlandRegion: PfalzRebsorte: Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 1 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,80 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,60 g/lRestsüße: 5,00 g/l Pfalz

This beautiful dry white wine is driven by floral fruits and spicy pear flavors. Unoaked and lightly mineral-driven on the finish, this is a fine choice if you're having seafood tonight. Made in the Terras do Sado region, just south of Lisbon in southern Portugal, this is a blend of indigenous white grapes and a little bit of Chardonnay.

This brilliant white wine is crafted in northern Argentina’s La Rioja region. The Torrontés grape, a distant cousin of Muscat, produces distinctively aromatic wines, and we think they are some of the best bottles to come out of Argentina lately. The “Plata” is dry on the palate, with notes of mixed white flowers, yellow plums, and even some white peppercorn on the finish. Overall, it has a remarkably fresh character, enabling it to complement lighter dishes without overwhelming them. It’s fresh and surprising each and every time you open a bottle.
