Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco Limited Edition 2019, Rioja SpainBuy A deep golden yellow in the glass, which hints at barrel fermentation and maturation. After twenty minutes the oak-derive character of vanilla, coconut and toast lift off to reveal a core of citrus and tropical fruit boasting ripe lemon, honeysuckle, apricot, dried mango and pineapple. The fruit from the nose comes through on the palate with a frame and texture that is creamy and expansive. There's lots going on here, but it's nicely balanced between savoury and creamy notes. Great stuff!

Avondale Anima 2017, Paarl South AfricaBuy This is without doubt one of our favourites wines, and an absolute bargain consider the quality. After some time in the decanter, and served cool not cold, Anima 17' boasts a beautifully enticing and complex nose of buttered pear, hazelnut, cashew, yogurt, citrus peel, chalk and steely minerality. Those wonderful aromatics pass from the nose to the palate effortlessly. The presence, weight and texture of this vintage is quite remarkable. There's the classic minerality and acidity you expect from a Chenin, but there's much more flesh and cream than you'd expect. A touch of salinity and nimble acidity balances the rich fruit quite perfectly. As for the finish, it doesn't let itself down here either. Layers of macadamia and stone fruit kick on towards the one minute mark. Take a bow Avondale. This is great stuff.
