One of the Most Beautiful Wines of the Year

Sea Monster, Wine Hooligans, 2015

The most delicious non-Chardonnay white 
we've ever had from California

Ever wondered what is is the SWiG team drink on their squad nights out? We found this seriously delicious white while initiating our newest team member into the fold and while a few of us couldn't remember much the morning after, the one thing we all remembered was not only the beautiful label, but also the stunning, Condrieu-like intensity and depth of flavour. 

We have long been aware of a stirring in the US, a new brand of winemakers who are completely changing the face of what has become a very classic scene; but their wines are now shouting so loudly it's impossible to ignore.

 


Sea Monster 2015

Only 25 cases imported

Not only is it delicious, it's excellent value for Cali wine of this quality, or from anywhere. We absolutely love the beautiful aromas of Viognier that beckon you in, but the palate is not as rich as a big Condrieu or Viognier; this is fresh and very together, without sacrificing the joy of the grape. Generous stone fruit flavours meld with a mouthwatering lime cordial, lemongrass and tangerine citrus as they cleverly blend in Grenache Blanc, Riesling and Chardonnay. On the palate there's a richness and structure reminiscent of Rhone whites, but then there's a fresh, saline quality that suggests, nay demands, a plate of fruits de mer. (It's also delicious with other foods, such as pork, noodles aromatic spices, and poultry, as well as drinking on its own and with cheese.)
