A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Swartland Chenin Blanc 2018

90+ Our Score
94 Wine & Spirits
(2/2019) "Drought conditions followed by a cool harvest season produced a stunning version of Adi Badenhorst's entry-level chenin. He took an unusual approach in 2018, harvesting the fruit over the course of 12 days and adding each day's fruit to the already-fermenting musts. All of it was whole-bunch pressed, and one-quarter was fermented in old casks, the rest in tanks. Left on its lees for seven months with occasional stirring, the final wine is as deep and rich in flavor as its yellow hue predicts: It moves from waxy apple flavors to mango, wildflower honey and tangerine. It feels all of a piece, bright acidity holding the flavors taut and firm, a large-boned chenin fit for a crown roast of pork. All that for $16."

Domaine Labbe Abymes Vin de Savoie 2018

89+ Our Score
(5/2019) This wine simply screams for a warm day on the patio! The Savoie region of eastern France sits right on the Swiss border. It is better known for skiing and cheese than it is for wine, but that should not be the case, as the wines here are fun and tasty as well as dense and impressive. This crisply textured, bone dry bottling comes from Abymes and is made entirely from the Jacquere grape. While only 11% ABV, the wine feels weighty and presents salted, mineral-laden apple and lemon flavors along with a long finish that expands with oxygen. A very cool white that packs more than the first few sips suggest.
