With no less than 222 still white wines in the UK to choose from in our range, the spectrum of shades and styles varies. Firstly, white wine is made from green-skinned grapes whose juice is colourless. You just need to peel the skin of a table grape to see this. To maintain the colourless hue the grapes are pressed and the juice is removed from their grape skins before fermentation. We have classified our range into 4 key categories to help simplify your search: Fresh & Light, medium-bodied, full-bodied and complex. Fresh & Light wines are light-bodied with a dry and refreshing taste, possibly with herbaceous and citrus notes dominating. Medium-bodied wines tend to be a bit bolder and weightier on the palate due to fruit ripeness or slight ageing in oak or on lees. These may be off-dry. Full-bodied wines are likely to be deeper in colour and express more intense bold flavours brought about with oak ageing. A step up from the full-bodied style are complex white wines which have a bigger, more robust mouthfeel with buttery, honeyed, nutty and toasty flavours, attributed to extended ageing.

A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
