Join us for the final instalment of our Adnams Wine Festival
Savour this selection of white wines
In this year’s Adnams Wine Festival we’ve travelled through many of the world’s most well-loved wine regions. So, what better way to complete our tour than with one last trip around the globe, sampling a variety of wonderful white wines as we go?
Versatile, varied and vibrant, the sheer diversity of white wines makes it well worth taking another trip. Climate, location, soil, and local winemaking practices all have an impact on the end result, meaning the same variety of grape will produce remarkably different wines when grown in Chile, France, New Zealand, or elsewhere, with many whites capable of ageing superbly too.
We’ve selected our favourite white wines from around the globe, for you to enjoy to the full. It’s our way of saying goodbye and to thank you for joining us on this case-by-case tour of some of the world’s very best wines.
Explore the world of white wines
Revisiting Sicily, we delight in the easy drinking Ornato Pinot Grigio that’s dry, soft and well balanced. We then venture south to find a zesty, irresistibly aromatic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, produced by the ever-cheery John and Brigid Forrest – who left behind careers in medicine and molecular biology to take up winemaking.
In Chile’s Central Valley we find the vibrant Camuflaje Chardonnay, with pear, pineapple and acacia flower aromas. Part of every sale helps fund The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, whose mission is to conserve endangered species. Then we travel on to a recently modernised winery near Timisoara Cramele Recas, Romania, to sample the lovely, fresh Paparuda Sauvignon Blanc.
Taking in one of Portugal’s most celebrated wineries where the Santos Lima family have been making wine for four generations, we sample the Quinta Vista White that’s crisply fresh with citrus nuances. We end our journey in Australia’s Maclaren Valley with the organic Paxton Guesser White that uses night-harvested fruit to get the perfect equilibrium of zippy freshness and ripe juiciness. This produces a zesty palette with lemon and lime characters.
Available both in store and online.
