New Arrivals and Returning Favorites for December 2023

With only one more frenetic month until the festivities are in peak swing, we’d like to highlight a few of the gems that have recently arrived, and those soon to be circulating in our scene; wines that show a fresh and contemporary facet of some of our longest collaborating winemakers, alongside specimens from new producers, exciting regions and inventive styles completely new to our books.

Expect to find equal parts finessed and far out flavors from Greece, California, Oregon, Austria, Germany, and excitedly, the announcement of the first winery we will be working with from China’s Ningxia region. The year has yet to end before all this excitement can be discovered!

She’s been dubbed ‘One of China’s most exciting winemakers,’ Emma Gao is currently leading the pack of winemaking potential in one of the most biologically diverse and technologically advanced countries in the world. The Silver Heights winery is based in the mountainous, arid region of Ningxia in Central Northern China famous for it’s agricultural bounties and delicacies. Here, Emma crafts mindful and intention-driven wines out of a classic assortment of international vinifera varietals, however offering a completely unique perspective on how these grapes are interpreted through their terroir.

Silver Heights ‘Emma’s Reserve’ 2019 (Cabernet Sauvignon)

Emma is a classically trained winemaker, having studied in Bordeaux and then bringing her expertise back to her native homeland to start Silver Heights winery in 2007. Nowadays the winery spans over 70 hectares on Mount Helan and espouses the beliefs of sustainability and precision in the vineyard, allowing the fruit to truly speak for itself.

We are very fortunate to be able to bring to you five of Silver Heights’ cuvees representing the very best of what the winery has to offer:

Silver Heights ‘Reserve Chardonnay’ 2021
Silver Heights ‘Jiayuan Pinot Noir’ 2020
Silver Heights ‘Family Red’ 2018 (Cabernet Sauvginon)
Silver Heights ‘Summit’ 2020 (Cabernet Sauvignon)

For more information on Silver Heights winery and their practices in the vineyard and the cellar, please click here; and if you’re in Bangkok on December 1st, we will be hosting Emma and the Silver Heights team at the James Suckling event at the Grand Hyatt Erawan on Dec 1st.

Continuing onward, we trade our arid mountains for lush, river valleys, and find ourselves with new arrivals from the forward-minded folks in Germany’s Mosel. As one can guess, Riesling is the name of the game here, presented by a couple producers that have absolutely excited us with their tactile and supple renditions of the varietal.

Willi Schaefer amongst the Riesling

It’s safe to say that Weingut Willi Schaefer is producing some of the best, clear-cut Riesling in Germany. With a keen eye for precision and an adherence to minimal intervention, there’s a sense of classicism evoked by Willi’s labels but his wines further transcend this with an electric sense of elegance and mineral charm. We have four labels from Weingut Schaefer, all exploring the depths of the Riesling in shades of dry, off-dry, and sweet

When it comes to the modern winemaking scene in the Mosel, there is no shortage of talent and innovation. Having worked with and learned from some of the best winemakers in the region, Julian Haart began his first vinous solo-venture in 2010 with the acquisition of a particularly gorgeous, high-elevation site in the valley. Since then Julian has been producing sharp, transportive wines with clearly defined structure and balance stemming from his mineral-laden terroir.

Julian’s Old Vine Kabinett Riesling from 2022

His wines can be considered an homage to the region’s greats while still dancing to their own unique rhythm. Julian’s Old Vine Kabinett is surely not to be missed for those obsessive over this heady, Germanic grape.

Of course, the iconic labels of Austrian natural wine standard bearer Claus Preisinger, are no stranger to our books, yet we can’t help but be continually captivated by Claus’ ability to innovate; creating cuvees that consciously and curiously subvert the idea that wine should be anything but delicious and drunk with enjoyment. The Preisinger’s have a knack for channeling energy through wine, their process allowing us to access their philosophies and intentions through easy-drinking, entry levels wines alongside complex and nuanced cuvees providing a full spectrum of styles within the winery.

Our most recent additions, aptly and frivolously named ‘Fruit Loops,’ can be found in shades of both light red (Rot) and delicate orange (Weiss) and are a culmination of a dynamic blend of local and international varietals fermented in barrel and amphora.

The Red, an assemblage of Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Blaufrankisch is crunchy, herbal, and saline while the Weiss, composed of Scheurebe, Furmint, and Riesling, is a texturally piquant and tangy skin contact orange with a touch of tropical lift. The first tasting note that comes to mind for both though is Yummy! These are Wines for sheer enjoyment amongst friends.

Another new arrival to us, this time from the sun-soaked hills (mountains) of Savoie we have Edouard and Lisanne of Domaine des Sonnettes. We’re sure some of you might recognize Lisanne from her fun and ecclectic project Sonshine Vins, that we have been working with for some time. Recently founded in 2021, Domaine des Sonnettes focuses on four different varietals grown with minimal intervention in the Bugey alps. We can’t help but love these alpine expressions of joyously juicy and ephemeral wines in both Petillant Naturel (Gros Pif) and a light red of Gamay and Poulsard (Pied de Mouton); enticing and ideal matches for so much of our spicy, savory Thai cuisine.

And just in time for the end of this year, the return of long-awaited wines from small, rarified producers in Greece and all throughout the western coast of the United States.

From the Grecian terroir of Naoussa in the Macedonian Isles, we have the excited arrival of Domaine Thymiopoulos; Savory, textural reds and their truly iconic and dangerously quaffable Rose have made their triumphant return all crafted from the indigenous varietal of Xinomavro.

Finally, to showcase some of our favorite wines from our friends over in the States, we have a selection of cuvees from Sandhi, Domaine de la Cote, and Phelan Farms all headed by veteran sommelier and winemaker Rajat Parr, who will be joining us in Bangkok before end of the year.

PS and Bien Nacido cuvees will be available in December 2023

As well, the inimitable coastal Syrahs of Sashi Moorman of Piedrasassi Wine will make their triumphant return in December. A family owned winery and bakery based in Lompoc, Northern California, Sashi and his partner Melissa are producing some of the best wines of this varietal in the contiguous United States; they are rare specimens that we are delighted to be able to welcome back to our books.

We are always so grateful and excited to be able to continually share incredible wines with our community here in Thailand. As we approach the end of 2023 we look back on an amazing year filled with excitement, curiosity, and engagement as the wine and food scene continues to grow ever more formidable in this country we call home.

Feasts and Fêtes for the End of November

We often find that no matter where you are from in the world or what you choose to celebrate, there’s always a delightful common denominator in the indulgence of food and drink. So for the end of November, before December’s holidays, get-togethers, and gatherings arrive in full swing, we have a few food-centric events focusing on the flavors of fall and winter accompanied by the wines that suit them best.

In the US, November is most notably signified by Thanksgiving, a holiday whose secular nature has it allowed to become a staple holiday for families to gather and feast. Traditionally, the Thanksgiving meal is comprised of roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, and the like, but as the nature of the holiday has grown, expanded and been reinterpreted by the American diaspora, we know see all sorts of imaginative flavor combinations gracing our Thanksgiving spreads.

This coming week on Thursday November 23rd, our friends at Quince will be crafting up their own signature spread of their take on household Thanksgiving favorites. These reimaginations of classic flavors will be paired with bottles made by some of our favorite American winemakers from both Oregon and California, including the recently acclaimed ‘Roman’ Zinfandel from the folks over at Marietta Cellars in Sonoma County. Please find the selection of wines available for the evening listed below along with special vermouth cocktails.:

Kelley Fox Vermouth 2020, Oregon – a winterized blend of pinot noir, brandy and botanicals. To be enjoyed as a negroni, americano, or simply neat

Salem Wine Co. Chardonnay 2020, Oregon – Biodynamic Chardonnay grown on signature iron-rich jory soils, a heady white wine from the hills

Sandhi Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2020, California – Single varietal sourced from 6 different vineyards throughout Santa Barbara; elegant, saline, and floral

Marietta Cellars OVR NV, California – A yearly sustained blend of table-suited reds with depth, character, and texture; Mostly Zin

Marietta Cellar Roman 2020, California – A brilliant rendition of an American viticultural classic, overdelivering on the varietal with poise and structure.

Marietta Cellars ‘Roman’ Zinfandel

Please find below the full menu of bites, mains, and sides crafted by Chef Shane Reichenbach to be enjoyed at Quince’s Thanksgiving feast this week at thb 1,800++ per person. Quince Eatery is located on Soi Somkid in Chidlom and bookings and reservations can be made by contacting them at 094 868 2639

In the continuing spirit of Thanksgiving, we’ll be collaborating with Cadence restaurant this whole week from the 22nd to the 26th of November to share even more American producers whose wines fit perfectly with the time of year.

Beverage director Chris Simon has put together a pairing of Oregonian and Californian wines to dance alongside Cadence’s signature brand of elegant and narrative fine dining. Please find a selection below of wines from Kelley Fox, Steve & Jill Matthiasson, Rajat Parr, and Kenny Likitprakong; a truly diverse array of producers to represent some of the best and most innovative winemakers pushing the American winemaking scene forward and upward.

Cadence’s American-Focused Thanksgiving Wine Pairing

Chef Jay Sangsingkeaw’s approach to contemporary French fine dining located in the heart of Ekkamai will play host to a special selection of the Loire’s best and brightest classic to low-intervention winemakers like Lise & Bertrand Jousset and Domaine de la Chevalerie.

October and November Bring New Labels and Returning Favorites

A fast approaching festive season and (fingers crossed) hopefully dryer days ahead in Bangkok means fresh seasonal menus, fun new concepts, and a bounty of new arrivals from both old and new world producers. Some of these winemakers bringing forth new labels to us here in Thailand, while others have labels we are simply excited to be able to stock our shelves with again. With everything from serious, classic wines made with low-intervention finesse throughout Austria, France, Germany, and the Greek Islands to some of the most important producers currently making wine and growing grapes in California.

Starting with our French arrivals, over the next two months we shall see new cuvees from predominantly Burgundy, the Loire, the Rhone, and the more modern (and modest) side of Bordeaux.

From Burgundy, both mineral masterminds behind the cellars of Domaine Thibert and Denogent present a slew of white wines all made from their sharp and precisely grown parcels of Chardonnay throughout the Macon and Pouilly Fuisse.

From the Loire, more arrivals from minimal-intervention minded Frantz Saumon with exciting and unique assemblages in the form of both sparkling and still. Frantz’s Rose makes its return along with newly minted Colombard and a juicy, crunchy Grolleau-Gamay.

As well, Lise & Bertrand Jousset of Montlouis-Sur-Loire continue to delight and entice with their wide array and shades of Chenin.

This includes perennial favorite Vilain P’tit Ch’nin, as well as a sleek and mineral Muscadet by the name of Voila!

With serious red wines of structure and texture to follow we must mention the Domaine Jean Royer of Chateauneuf de Pape and Chateau Clarisse of Puisseguin of St Emilion. Both houses offering up idyllic renditions of their regional specialties with dialed-in levels of finesse set alongside mindful winemaking practices. Make sure to check out the various large formats by Clarisse.

Going East to the mountains of Germany to the often less-regarded regions of Baden and Rheingau, winemakers Edel & Hanspeter Ziereisen and Peter Jakob Kuhn are make genre-defining wines that one might call future classics.

The Ziereisen cuvees span from highly accessible to deeply coveted, showcasing some of the more uniquely grown German grape varietals.

PJ Kuhn is regarded as one of the fresher faces in German Riesling, but has quickly cemented himself as one of the most important varietal crafters in the country. His Lenchen Kabinett is restocked amongst limited offerings of superb GG labelings.

Hailing from one of the most historically important winemaking countries on the planet, the wines of Greece are deeply varied and intrinsic to the small islands upon which they have been grown and cultivated for thousands of years. Now, and for quite some time, we have been able to support some of the most iconic and representative producers in Greek winemaking. Domaine Sclavos and Thymiopoulos are just some of these producers, making wines that are distinct to their terroir and historical origins from grapes like Xinomavro and Zakynthino.

Notably, this incredibly gastronomic and deeply umami rose of Xinomavro is restocked from Domaine Thymiopoulos and remains one of our consistently favorite wines vintage after vintage.

Floating over to newer world pastures, we have a few select arrivals from producers that we have been working with for quite some time, each year bringing an exciting arrangement of wines from both Australia and the United States.

From the Adelaide Hills, James Erskine’s winemaking endeavors are known throughout the global world of wine for introducing many to a fun, fresh, and juicy side of Australia’s natural winemaking scene. Jauma, their vineyards, and the growers they work with, are to thank for so much of the proliferation of the natural wine movement in Australia.

In fact, winemakers Mark and Alicia of Borachio cut their teeth working and learning with James and his partner Sophie, and their philosophy on winemaking is a definitive nod to their time spent with Jauma. Along with their Chardonnay, Mark and Alicia blessed us with a visit last year bringing with them their love of wine and a good time. Plus, we got to ferment wild indigo at Wonderfruit with Philip Huang and the help of this cuvee so it may or may not have magical powers (Not scientifically tested or proven).

Finally, with great pleasure and excitement we are able to announce the return of one of our long time favorite winemakers and good friend Rajat Parr. We are lucky to be receiving wine from not one but multiple of Raj’s projects including Domaine de la Cote, Sandhi, and the new to our shores Phelan Farms; a regenerative, permaculture wine farm owned and operated by Raj.

All of Rajat’s wines are made with maximum intention and minimal intervention as the former sommelier turned winemaker seeks to channel the best of California terroir and viticulture into his wines.

We are thrilled to be able to supply our thriving wine scene with exciting wines from both near and far. For more information about any of our wines or producers please don’t hesitate to reach out with any comments or inquiries. Do reach out please!

An Fall Full of Arrivals: August & September

Whether it’s the return of a perennial fan-favorite or a brand new cuvée from one of our producers, our August additions to the portfolio are sure to excite and amaze. You can expect a diverse array of whites and reds from Spain and Oceania, alongside a colorful assortment of German & French low-intervention wines, and robust Italian offerings from all throughout the Boot.

We’re always happy to see fresh-faced labels from some of our long-standing friends and winemakers, with new arrivals always comes a wider showcase of what our producers are capable of.

From the salty shores and rocky high hills of Spain, arrive new producers to our collection. Mineral-laden Alabarinos from the Galician cellars of Albamar and Fento, the former of the two recently featured and credentialed in this lovely piece of writing about the varietal itself.

From the Rioja, minimally intervened vino rojo in the form of Clos Ibai, a small batch production of whole-cluster Tempranillo aged for a year and a half in old French barrels.

These days, the arrival of Champagne is always a celebration. Especially when it’s a newfound producer to our portfolio. The estate of Arlaux has been making phenomenal champagnes in Montagne de Reims since the 1800’s; their ‘Grand Cuvee’ Premier Cru being an assemblage of the region’s varietal triumvirate with 3 years on the lees

The natural wines of the Loire Valley based Puzelat family are restocked with the return of the supremely elegant, herbaceous, and distinctively Loire ‘Pineau d’Aunis,’ along with a white blend from old-vine parcels, and everyone’s favorite Chenin Blanc, ‘Pineau de la Loire’

Further east, the renowned cellars of Domaine Tissot, nestled in the mountainous vineyards of Jura, have shared with us some incredibly special and always-coveted selections ranging from still, sparkling, oxidative to more.

Hailing from further south we have bold and textural wines from producers like Chateau Massereau, the standard bearers of mindfully made Bordeaux;

And the biodynamic, precision-driven cuvees of M. Chapoutier, including their legendary Hermitage Blanc ‘Chante Alouette’ as well as few mature Cote Rotie from the Northern Rhone.

Never a shortage of great German wines around our parts, we welcome back some of our favorites such as Weiser-Kunstler and Atlan & Artisan from the Mosel, Hofgut Falkenstein from the Saar, Enderle & Moll from Baden, and our friend Stefan Winter from the Rheinhessen.

Winemaking dream team and husband & wife, Konstantin and Alexandra of Weingut Weiser-Kunstler continue to dish up their sleek, tactile, and sultry wines from the vast slew of incredibly high-level, slate-rich vineyards that they work.

Their Rieslings have a foot decisively planted in the traditions of the Mosel while progressively innovating upon the terroir and stylistic creation that the region is known for.  Everything from their more straightforward, entry-level wines to the highest renditions of GG that they create are a delightful insight into Germany’s most famous grape.

Now if acid’s what you’re into, the cultish and collectible cuvees of Hofgut Falkenstein’s cool and composed Saar Rieslings coax the palate with herbal freshness, bright twangs of crisp fruit, and mineral, tingly phenolics balancing out the varying degrees of sweetness in their wines. Plus, they make a darn good Pinot (read as Spatburgunder) at that.

Taking a departure from the more traditional side of German winemaking and its vast swath of Rieslings, we find the philosophically natural-oriented cellars of Enderle & Moll in the regional nook of German viticulture known as Baden set along the Swiss border. Their wines rarely stray towards the realm of white, instead showcasing a dynamic range of skin-contact, orange, rosé, and red.

Floating down towards the Mediterranean, our Italian producers send us selections from the hills of Tuscany, natural wines from the coastal vineyards of Campania, and both frisky and formidable reds from Braida in the Piemonte and Lorenzo Begali in the Veneto.

Tuscany’s winemaking estates are often known not only for their vinous enterprises but also for running established agriturismos throughout the unmistakable rolling hills of the region. Corzano e Paterno’s production of wine, extra virgin olive oils, and cheeses are famous, so it is only fitting that their iconic ‘Terre di Corzano’ Chianti wine joins our ranks.

Cantina Giardino, a collective cohort of winemaking friends and compatriots have a knack for making some precocious and vividly natural wines from one of Italy’s most important agricultural epicenters. With everything from orange, rosé, petnat and amphora made wines, they are a selection not to be missed by the dedicated naturalists among us.

To finish with our friends (technically) closest to our warm and sunny shores, we have the classic Kiwi wines of Neudorf, as well as delicious offerings from the Australia’s Yarra Valley in New South Wales and the McLaren Vale in South Australia.

From Nelson, New Zealand, the wines of Neudorf are a distinctive standout in the scene; their samplings delving into something a bit more serious, as they’ve been making wine in the region since the 1970’s.

Our Australian arrivals mark the return of young gun Luke Lambert and his newly minted ‘Crudo’ Shiraz, a juicy, easy-going iteration of red to contrast with his serious, age worthy ‘Syrah’.

Going into September, our catalog of specific producers continues to grow even deeper and more expansive as exciting, new (to us) cuvees are ushered into Bangkok’s wine scene

From the French side, further additions of highly coveted, fully certified-biodynamic winemaking estates by the likes of De Sousa in Champagne, Michel Chapoutier in the Rhone, Valentin Zusslin in Alsace, and of course the iconic, alpine domaine of Stephane & Benedicte Tissot.

Some curious and highly contemplative wines from the Jura come in the form of Tissot’s fortified offerings that are highly traditional and autochonous to Jura’s winemaking vernacular. These examples are their Marcvin de Jura and a delicious Vin de Paille.

Macvin is a uniquely Jura wine specimen produced from a base spirit of Marc du Jura (a local brandy made from fermented grape musts) blended for 2 years with the juice of Chardonnay and Savagnin in barrel. Characteristic notes of toasted hazelnuts, poached pears, and grilled apricots balanced with a touch of residual acid and a welcome pithy biterness; a real regional treat!

The Vin de Paille, or directly translated as ‘Straw Wine’ as pictured above, is a fortified sweet wine made by first concentrating Trousseau, Poulsard, and Chardonnay for 4 months on straw mats before the wine is then pressed and aged in oak for 3 years. Perhaps one of the best examples of Vin de Paille available in the world.

To continue on our tour of biodynamics, Champagne De Sousa has been working their Cote des Blancs crus extensively with regenerative, low-intervention agriculture and thus producing some of the most impressive champagnes we’ve tasted from the region. Housed in Avize, this estates champagnes sees new arrivals to us here in Bangkok.

From Alsace, returning Grand Cru excellence from the multi-generational estate of Valentin Zusslin. Producing eaux de vie, sparkling, and still wines, these biodynamic-certified, classic Alsatian gems are a perfect complementary pairing to many of our regional fine dining options, particularly this elegant off-dry, picturesque Grand Cru Gewurztraminer.

Another exciting addition to the catalog joins us in the form of not grapes, but rather apples and pears! And only the finest at that, as Jerome Forget works old growth, organic orchards in the ancestral home of French cider, Normandy.

Joining our previously held label Fossey is a selection of further engaging perries and ciders called Vinot, Paysan, and Pear Shaped; each highlighting the distinctly fresh fruit that Jerome works with.

To finish, we’re invoking wine history with the recurring arrival of Georgian wines. These are serious, representative wines that are in effect the culmination of thousands of years of oenological techniques and societal importance. These are wines that taste the way winemaking might have in its origins.

All of John Okros and his sister’s wines are back in stock along with the new arrival of famed Georgian producer Pheasant’s Tears. Their cuvee Quinta is an assemblage of five unique Georgian grapes macerated for 5 days in ancient amphora also known as Qvevri.

As always, we’re thrilled to be able to share these incredible and exciting wines with you from all over the globe. If you have any questions, comments, or wish to find out more information about anything mentioned here, you can always reach out to us for advice or expertise. Cheers!

The Matthiasson Linda Vista 2021, Napa, CA

Steve and Jill leased the Linda Vista Chardonnay vineyard behind their house and started farming it in 2011. “We immediately converted it to organic farming and got busy re-invigorating the beautiful old vines. The West Oak Knoll area where we live is one of the classic Chardonnay spots in Napa, going back to the 60s, when the climate here was considered too cool for full-bodied reds. The cool winds and marine origin clay soils preserve zesty acidity and freshness, while the Napa sun provides richness and ripeness. Leasing the vineyard, taking it organic, and farming it ourselves gave us the control to feel comfortable producing a challenging and iconic variety like Chardonnay, where crafting “balance” means walking a razor’s edge in a genre with such iconic examples. The vines were originally planted in 1989 by Beringer, and we’re proud to take our turn caring for them as the vineyard reaches a true maturity.

For complexity, completeness, and balance, we achieve a diversity of ripeness by using the traditional method of harvesting the fruit a number of different times during the ripening period. The earlier harvests contribute acidity and minerality, and the later harvests contribute flesh and richness. We gently whole cluster press all of the grapes, then ferment and age the wine sur lees in seasoned French oak barrels (no oak flavor), with only native yeast. No racking and minimal battonage (lees stirring) on only a few selected barrels. We allow two-fifths of the barrels to go through malo-lactic fermentation for complexity and balance. The vines were originally planted in 1989, and we’re proud to take our turn caring for them as the vineyard reaches a true maturity.

This modern day California Chardonnay has moderate alcohol and mouthwatering acidity that is a trade-mark of that vineyard, balanced by a riper luscious creaminess. The pH is 3.45, the TA is 7.2 g/l, and the alcohol only at ABV 12.5%.

“I like the crisp and easy sense to this chardonnay with a medium body, dried apple, nougat and hints of pear character. Hints of caramel and a delicious finish. Less heavy than many chards from the valley.” 93pts James Suckling

An Evening of “Terroir without Borders” at Villa Frantzen on July 25th

This July 25th we’ll be hosting a once in a lifetime collaboration dinner at Villa Frantzen featuring two incredible winemakers, Brad Hickey of Brash Higgins from Australia and Daniel Twardowski of Pinot Noix from Germany.

“Terroir without borders” will be completely a one-of-a-kind event, showcasing the unexpected and rule-defying wines of these gentleman set alongside Villa Frantzen’s inimitably charming tasting menus.

This wine pairing will span unique offerings from both winemakers including wines exclusive to this collaborative event.

Diners can expect an immersive evening of wine and food, as the night commences with precise bubbles from Mr. Twardowski paired with a selection of Frantzen’s signature bites of oyster with dill and vendace roe alongside Kalix roe served with brioche. Then our guests will be whisked away into the dining room for a five-course menu paired with these incredible wines with informative insight and engagement from the winemakers and head sommelier, Jochen Sandkuhl.

  • Welcome – Daniel Twardowski, Ultra Brut, Sekt, Mosel, Germany, NV paired w/ Oyster, dill, and vendace roe & Kalix Roe, brioche, creme fraiche, onions
  • One – Daniel Twardowski, Ultra Brut, Sekt, Mosel, Germany, NV paired w/ Cured Norwegian Salmon & Beer-Poached King Crab, dill, ponzu, avocado, horseradish, sour cucumber
  • Two – Brash Higgins, ZBO, Zibbibo, Riverland, Australia, 2022 paired w/ Chawanmushi, lobster, ikura, fermented fennel

The wines that will be featured include:

  • Daniel Twardowski Ultra Tradition Brut NV, Mosel, Germany – “The grapes come from our own plots on the Dhroner Hofberg. The young wines of both vintages (15 and 16) spent 12 months in used barriques before undergoing a second fermentation together passed on the bottle. The result is bone dry and finalized without any dosage, hence the name. It’s exciting how this edition differs from the Brut Edition, even if it’s just 2 grams more dosage . Citrus, yellow plum, apple, spicy, with gripping acidity and fine perlage . It’s one of those wines that sticks in your memory for a long time.” – Daniel Twardowski
  • Daniel Twardowski Pinot Noix Ardoise 2017 3L Jeroboam, Mosel, Germany – “This Pinot Noir comes from our own plantations in the historical Grand Cru location Dhroner Hofberg, located in a cool side valley of the Moselle. “Ardoise” is our flagship, which we have been producing from our own plantations since 2011. The natural environment is reflected in the wine as an aromatic essence: smoky slate, coniferous wood, wild cherry, cool winds, supported by taut elegance.” – Daniel Twardowski
  • Daniel Twardowski Hofberg Reserve 2018 3L Jeroboam, Mosel, Germany“Smokey and earthy nose with lemon zest and paprika notes. Incredible interplay of dark minerality, concentrated fine tannins and delicate red-fruit character. Great brilliance at the very long finish. Almost supernatural vitality and fantastic aging potential”- James Suckling
  • Brash Higgins CBSV 2020, McLaren Vale, Australia“Winemaker Brad Hickey likes cabernet. “It’s nice to have a Cabernet”, says Hickey, “a guilty pleasure, a northern Californian style, per se, cabernet qualities, fuller flavoured, richer style. I like my Alice In Wonderland Zibbibo and frisky wines, but it’s great to have this in the mix too”.Very fragrant, plums, brined green olive, minty notes, cassis and lavender. Plush and so very supple in the palate, bright acidity perking up a lush flow of unctuous, dense, concentrated cassis, green herb and more olive character. Goes long, stains the palate gently, open weave, light web of tannins. Really delightful in its generosity and unashamed fuller flavour. Lovely.” – Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
  • Brash Higgins ZBO 2022, McLaren Vale, Australia“It’s not sickly sweet and overly perfumed as far as Zibibbo that spent 150 days on skins goes. This is a good thing. There are, however, sweet elements in the bouquet of lemon candy and fairy floss, but overall, it comes across as a more savoury style. Lemon myrtle, lime leaf, candied citrus peel and dried herbs, especially a lovely note of spearmint. Chalky, grapefruity texture with a gentle acidic lift and white pepper crunch. A bit of a watercolour finish, nevertheless tasty and refreshing.” – Kasia Sobiesiak (The Wine Front)

The “Terroir without Borders” dinner in Villa Frantzen’s series of Wine and Dine events will take place at 18:30 on Tuesday, July 25th and costs 7,900thb per person. The evening will include five courses, seven glasses, two supplementary dish options, and a surprise serving alongside some equally rare formats of Daniel’s wines.
