Assyrtiko by Gaia Wild Ferment 2016

Descriptions:

Santorini PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), Greece was formed by a volcanic eruption, creating a crescent of land around a deep central lagoon, known as caldera. The stunning landscape draws hoardes of tourists for the sunsets, but the viticulture is also extraordinary.

Vines are trained round, in a basket shape, allowing the grapes to hang down in the centre, protected from the scorching sun and fierce winds by the canopy of leaves. Mineral rich volcanic soil are disease-free with no need to spray.

Gaia’s Assyrtiko Wild Ferment is produced by letting a combination of small 1,000 litre Inox tanks and 225 litre French barriques ferment on its own using native yeasts. Because of the unpredictability of using wild yeast, the vinification will occur differently in each tank or barrel. The winemaker then chooses only the best from each tank and barrel for the final blend, creating a wine that allows Assyrtiko to reach its full potential and level of enjoyment.

Domaine du Chardonnay Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2015

Descriptions:

In 1987 Etienne Boileau, Christian Simon and William Nahan had a vision to join their vineyards and expertise together to create Domaine du Chardonnay. With 38 hectares of estate vineyards (9.5 Petit Chablis/18.5 Chablis/9.0 Chablis 1er Cru) they are hands on strictly controlling every aspect of the process from the vineyards to the glass.

Millions of years ago, the area around what’s now the small town of Chablis was covered by the sea. In the Jurassic era, the sediment-enriched clay of the region began to form, and it’s the clay that gives Chablis wine it’s unique elegance, freshness and complexity.
