The white wine
On occasion, elite Californian wineries need to move stock fast, and sell parcels of their wine to us at a very advantageous price. The proviso is that we keep their name a secret. This is when we pull out our ‘Illustrious’ labels. As the name suggests, it’s a wine to be revered. We can’t disclose the Californian winery behind this luxurious white, but we can tell you it’s from premium vineyards in Russian River Valley, a region in the heart of Sonoma County known for its world-class Chardonnays. Warm, blue-sky days are followed by cooling evening fog rolling in from the Pacific and covering the vineyards. The ideal conditions to produce grapes with luscious, fruit-rich aromas balanced by an elegant freshness. A superb white to savour.
