Video Round-Up: Ampelomeryx unleashed
Video One: Domaine de Pellehaut Ampelomeryx 2006
You may be familiar with the creature behind the name, but once you get past the brilliant label, there’s a very classy wine to be found within. This is a serious wine drinkers wine, and to make a statement, one that we believe would hold its own against many a Burgundy at twice the price.

Video Two: Simply Sauvignon Blanc 2008
This is the entry-level white of Eric Monnin, the man behind one of our most lauded wines, Dignité. A very quaffable, easy drinking white that’s crisp, dry and fruity.
Video Three: Waipara Springs Premo Dry Riesling 2008
The second truly dry Riesling from Waipara Springs. Made with structure, concentration and longevity in mind, it’s one of our best value offerings. Double-Gold, San Francisco International Wine Competition.
Video Four: Greenhough Sauvignon Blanc 2008
We have many excellent Sauvignon’s from New Zealand, but as an all-rounder, we believe this is our finest. Watch out Marlborough… Nelson is here. And with wines like this, it may just cramp your style.
Video Five: La Revolution Colombard 2008
Colombard is a grape often used in blending, but it can also make some delightful single variety whites. La Revolution is from Gascony, the home of Colombard, where it’s grown and made by those who know best.
