Alc vol:11.50% | Line no:735886 This classic Muscadet from the Loire Valley is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape. With a bouquet of pure white fruit and citrus notes, combined with delightful minerality and a touch of salinity, it is light but elegant and hugely refreshing. A great apéritif and a perfect match for oysters, seafood platters or salads.
Alc vol:12.50% | Line no:895053 There is a new wave of Pinot Gris, or Grauerburgunder, from Germany at the moment and this is a brilliantly fresh and fruity example. It is well-rounded and rich with oatmeal notes, all underpinned with elegant minerality and bright raciness. An excellent match for spicier foods. Available exclusively online at waitrosecellar.com
Alc vol:12.50% | Line no:780905 Hilltop pride themselves on producing high-quality accessible wines. This is a light and easy-drinking, everyday-style Pinot Grigio with floral notes and fresh red apple and citrus flavours. This delicious wine will pair well with salads, tuna steak and mildly spiced oriental foods.
Alc vol:13.00% | Line no:739412 Pecorino is a lesser-known indigenous Italian grape variety (with no link to the Pecorino cheese), and this is a delightful, typically Italian wine with plenty of style and character. There are fresh, fruity, tropical notes on the nose, a subtle, delicate florality and enticing minerality on the palate. It’s perfect with most fish dishes.
Alc vol:13.00% | Line no:426392 A really exciting Chenin Blanc from South Africa that’s easy-drinking, fresh and crisp. This is a dry, unoaked wine marked by delicious, ripe, tropical fruit flavours with attractive aromas of lime zest and guava, and is an excellent match with poultry, roast pork or spicy seafood dishes such as chilli prawns. Brilliant value, versatile and refreshing.
Alc vol:13.00% | Line no:467101 This is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards located towards the eastern limits of the Bordeaux region. Refreshing, bright, fresh and full of lime citrus notes, it’s a perfect match for goat’s cheese salads, chicken and fish dishes (especially a relaxed fish and chips!). It also makes a great apéritif and a good party pairing with its red partner.
