Italian white blends

Tre Stelle Greco Fiano IGP

Basilicata, ITALY.

The mountainous region of Basilicata is perfectly equipped for the expert production process behind an impressionable Fiano, like Tre Stelle Greco Fiano IGP (180052). The Italians do this varietal best, and this region has perfected the art, creating a light golden wine with a stylish flavour profile that finely balances light tropical notes with fruity orchard tree flavours. The resulting wine pairs well with the saltiness of most hard cheeses, or with light meaty canapés such as chicken rillettes, for a luxurious European dining influence this summer.

Italian white varietals

Caldora Pecorino

Abruzzo, ITALY.

The term ‘pecorino’ is treasured within the world of cheese and wine alike. From the rocky mountain ranges, down to the hilly coast lines of the Adriatic Sea, Abruzzo has become the most notable region for this particular varietal due to the mosaic of microclimates that tessellate throughout this south Italian region. A signature Italian varietal, Caldora Pecorino (180057) is an exceptional pairing with Mediterranean inspired recipes. The crisp, aromatic nature of this wine is full of character and works well with cheeses, charcuterie meats, pastas or lean fish.

South African

Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc White

Stellenbosch, SAF

Weathered granite soils and cool sea breezes create a range of bright, fruity South African wines. Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc (194083) is a brisk white varietal that contains a classic high acidity, that’s typically associated with the varietal, along with hints of sweet and savoury undertones that create an interesting balance. This high acidity helps to cleanse the palate and makes this a seamless wine pairing across various menus. With hints of ripe quince, pineapple and stone fruit, this wine is best paired with creamy chicken recipes or rich lobster and crab.

A go-to selection for many dinner menus, this wine’s exciting flavour profile works well with easy-going chicken and white fish recipes.
