Review Round-up (August/September '23) - Boutinot

What's been said about our wines...


We truly believe our wines are fantastic, but you already knew that – we wouldn’t sell them if we didn’t!

That said, it is always nice when someone else recognises the quality in our portfolio, even better when they write a lovely review in the press to tell everyone about it…

Here’s a round-up of what they’ve been saying about us this last month!


Valmiñor Albariño 2022 “Chopped apples, fresh mangoes, honeysuckle and lemons on the nose. Deliciously fruity and juicy with a medium body, creamy texture and tangy acidity. Refreshing. Vegan. Drink now”. 91pts. (2023)


Torroxal Albariño 2022 “A delicious and aromatic white with white peaches, plums, white pepper and hints of cream. Medium-bodied with bright acidity. Fresh and succulent with loads of green apple character in the finish. Vegan. Drink now. 91pts.” (2023)


Waterkloof Circumstance Cape Coral Rosé, Stellenbosch 2022 “SA’s answer to Bandol and incredible value for money too. The stand-out rosé of the tasting; dry but generous with its fruit. Raspberry and strawberry notes rub up against a chalky bite and a rasping acidity to create a perfectly balanced rosé.” Chris Wilson, The Buyer Magazine


Alo Jais Noir Carignan, Côtes Catalanes 2022 “A lovely nose with dark cherries and berries, raw cocoa and baking spices. Medium body with firm tannins. It’s fruity and juicy at the center with a chewiness around the edges. Rich and flavorful finish. Drink now.” 91pts. (Aug 2023)
