A fresh approach to wine…
When we started RED&WHITE in 2005
we emphasised the importance of small
producers to our business. We are still
committed to this ethos. Strong relationships
with talented and innovative winemakers
do not form solely because of a mirroring
of business size. It is our understanding
of their passion and devotion for the
product they craft that constitutes a solid
business relationship, which we then
endeavour to pass on to our customers.
Few products are as diverse in style and price
as wine. Produced from hundreds of different
grape varieties, grown throughout the world
under disparate climates and shaped by
tradition and ambition, its diversity is also its
greatest strength. At RED&WHITE we look
for character in every bottle of wine we list;
the finished product is the essence of the
history and geography of a region and the
personality and expertise of the winemaker.
RED&WHITE is a growing wine business
and our aim is to continually improve
selection, service and delivery, whilst always
offering value for money. Increasingly we
buy direct from the vineyards ensuring the
customer gets the best possible quality
and price. It also gives us the opportunity
to travel and explore, keeping our passion
fresh and our enthusiasm alive.

To be called Champagne, wine has to do
more than sparkle; it must come from the
region bearing its name in northeast France.
To claim that this region’s wines are better
than any others would be wrong, but the finest
Champagne has a combination of freshness,
richness, delicacy and raciness unmatched
by sparkling wines from elsewhere.
At the northerly limit of French viticulture,
Champagne is a cool region; the vineyards
Champagne & Sparkling

face north, south and east across open plains.

The key ingredient to the regions’ success
is the chalk soil that reflects itself in the firm,
crystalline constitution of the finished wine.
Dom Perignon did not invent the Champagne
process; he did however develop the practice
of blending both vintages and vineyards,
resulting in any ties with provenance within this
roomy appellation of 33 000 being weakened.
The combination of blending and production
method means that the final wine shows
little resemblance to the pallid vin clair with
which the cellarmaster began his work.

Southern France
The region of the Midi (Languedoc-Roussillon) is
located around the basin of the Mediterranean.
It is the world’s largest wine region and
it stretches from Nîmes in the east to the
Spanish border in the west and consists of a
multitude of quality appellations and a more
generic source of good value Vin de Pays.
This region is rich in cultural heritage
and geography offering a great diversity
of wine styles. The unique concept of
Southern France

terroir and tradition work in harmony with

the modern varietal approach and a new
wave of young, passionate and dynamic
producers have established themselves.
In the past this area was infamous for its
poorer quality viticulture with over production
yielding copious quantities of vin de table.
This is no longer the case, yields have been
significantly reduced and quality is now
paramount. Established deep-rooted vines
of the traditional indigenous grape varieties
such as Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan are
grown alongside less traditional ones such
as Syrah, Chardonnay and Merlot offering
a great diversity of styles and flavours.
The breathtaking landscape of sea and
mountains, together with the sunny climate
and the rich local flavours of Mediterranean
food, convey the characteristics of
Languedoc’s unique and wonderful wines.

Burgundy is not one big vineyard, but the name
of a province that contains several distinct and
eminent wine regions. By far the richest and
most important is the Côte d’Or, composed
of the Côte de Beaune to the south and the
Côte de Nuits to the north, the ancestral
home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The Côte d’Or’s scarp limestone slope falls south-
east. The climate is continental, humid and cool,
with enough shelter to guard Pinot’s inherent

frailty. If the season is either is too hot or too cold,
then Pinot struggles to intensify its flavours or
soften its hard edges, however the last twenty
years have brought a remarkable run of vintages to
the Côte d’Or.
Pinot Noir and Burgundy become synonymous
in the discussion of terroir. Burgundy’s vineyards
have been classified into ever-smaller units and
each Cru lends its own distinctive scent and
texture to the wine. Confusing at first, to the
enthusiast the litany of village names and Crus
has magnified their fascination for the region.

Bordeaux is the largest fine wine region in the
world. The whole départment of the Gironde,
named after its most important estuary, is
dedicated to winemaking. Its production,
6 million hectoliters in 2006, dwarfs that of
other French wine regions with the exception
of the vast Languedoc-Roussillon.
The great red wine areas are found on the deep
gravel vineyards of the Medoc north of the city
of Bordeaux and in Pessac-Leognan on the

west bank of the Garonne to the south. These

are known as the ‘left-bank’ wines. The ‘right-
bank’ consists of St-Emilion and Pomerol, plus
their satellite communes along the north bank
of the Dordogne. The area between the two
rivers is called Entre-Deux-Mers, an area that
produces much underrated crisp, dry white
wines. To the south, where the Garonne river
meanders slowly and brings humidity to the
vineyards, noble-rot penetrates and helps produce
the worlds most sought after sweet wines in
the communes of Barsac and Sauternes.
Bordeaux’s stylistic qualities owe much to the
marginality of its climate. Variations in vintage
add interest but the deluges of 1963, 1968,
1974 and 1977 illustrated how damaging they
can be. Winemaking advances have allowed a
certain degree of control and additionally the
drier and warmer summers have taken some
of the suspense out of the Bordeaux harvest.

The Loire and its tributaries offer a mix of
vines and vineyards that are quite distinct
from each other but a family likeness
remains. As a whole they are light and
invigorating, with palpable acidity.
At the mouth of the river salt marshes quickly
give way to Muscadet, the region’s first modern
success story. It’s dry, salty and firm style makes
it the perfect foil for seafood. Heading east, one
finds the vineyards of Touraine and Anjou, home

to Chenin, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc.

The lush landscape is unlikely vine country and
the vineyards generally coincide with bluffs of
limestone, tufa and schist. Traditionally famous
for its sweet wines, now also fine dry white wines
are produced. The reds, produced from Cabernet
Franc, are some of the world’s most refreshing
and vigorous, with raspberry freshness.
The most evocative of the Loire’s appellations
are Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. A little Pinot has
made its way into these vineyards but this really
is the dominion of punchy, blackcurrant-scented
Sauvignon Blanc. Despite competition from
New Zealand, Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé have
maintained their varietal prominence, principally
because the growers are still prepared to sacrifice a
little flavour in order to boost Sauvignon’s tactile thrill.

The wines of Alsace reflect the ambivalent
situation of a border province. There are
two possible physical boundaries between
France and Germany; the Rhine and the
crest of the Vosges Mountains, which run
parallel fifteen miles west of the river.
Alsace has never belonged to Germany, except
in periods of military occupation. Its language
and its enonomic market maybe, but its soul is
entirely French. Alsace makes Germanic wines

in a French way. The Germanic tone is set by

the climate, the soil and the choice of grape
varieties. Where the sharply focussed German
wines show some of the exactitude of the
national character, Alsace examples are more
laid-back, with broader more rounded flavours.

The Rhône
The vineyards around the Rhône valley fall into
two groups; the north (Septentrional) which
produces less than a tenth of the regions
total and almost all fine wine; and the south
(Meridional) which is much more diverse.
The vineyards of the Northern Rhône barely stray
from the river’s course and the two principle
appellations, Côte Rôtie and Hermitage are
situated where the curve of the river brings a
southerly exposure to the steep valley sides.
The Rhône

Syrah is the dominant grape variety and the parallel

rows of vines impose their own geometry on
the rugged landscape of granite and limestone.
Côte Rôtie is the most flattering of the two
appellations to drink when young, whilst the
wines of Hermitage have exceptional staying
power. At a dramatic turn in the river ‘Condrieu’
produces white wines from the extraordinary
heady, recognisably perfumed Viognier grape
with its aromas of apricots and May blossom.
As you enter the Southern Rhône, the steep
Mistral buffeted valley gives way to a broad,
sunbaked Mediterranean plane. Pines and almond
trees yield to olive groves and vines bake in broad
terrasses. The grape mix is richly varied, Grenache
being the dominant quality red grape, increasingly
supported by Mourvedre and Syrah. Chateauneuf-
du-Pape is the vineyard area that best sums up
this regions qualities, but the surrounding villages
of Gigondas and Vacqueyras are just as able.

Italy has the richest variety of individual
wine styles, local climates and the most
important indigenous grape varieties of all
the world’s wine producing countries. The
invading Greeks called Italy Oenotria (the
land of wine) and a glance at a wine map
reminds one that Italy is carpeted in vines.
If slopes, sunshine, soil variety and a temperate
climate are essential components of varied,
quality wine production then Italy has it all.

The long spine of mountains that run from

the sheltering Alps almost to North Africa
produce the most desirable combination
of altitude with latitude and exposure.
Despite natural ability, unification only 150
years ago means that quality wine production,
appealing to an international market is a
relatively recent phenomenon. Today, growers
have had their battles with a bureaucracy that
wanted to put a permanent-lock on innovation
and from top to bottom this is a land brimming
with talent and flavour. The tomato may still
be searching for its ideal wine partner, but
for everything else Italy has a match.

The scale and infrastructure of the Spanish
wine industry has always emphasised supply
over demand. The annual influx of tourists
soak up some of the surplus, but Spain’s most
dependable customer has always been the
distilleries. Therefore, any grower heeding
the international call for improved quality has
had to confront both a backward winemaking
culture and the widely held prejudice that Rioja
was all that Spain was capable of producing.

One criticism levelled at modern winemaking
is that it diminishes individuality, yet in Spain it
has done the very opposite. After an excess of
technological advances Spain is rediscovering
her indigenous strengths and traditional
practices. The latest generation of white wines
from Rueda, Galicia and Navarra are diverse
and distinctive, whilst regions such as Priorato
have proven that within a region modernised
by French grape varieties, Spain’s indigenous
varieties produce world class wines.
The traditional regions of Rioja and Ribera
del Duero are also flourishing and starting
to abandon a historical over-dependence
on oak, allowing grapes picked at their
ripe potential to dominate the wine.
Spanish wine is enjoying a surge in international
popularity with the growers rarely needing to worry
about bringing their grapes to full ripeness due
to the warm climate and consequently low cost.
Spain offers bargains with individual character.

Despite its long historical relationship with
England, Portugal’s geographical isolation has
slowed its international reputation and growth
for its still wines. Like Spain, Portugal has
also struggled to shed its ‘one-wine’ image,
however whilst the rest of the world’s wine
regions are dominated by international grape
varieties, Portugal’s adherence to its indigenous
grape varieties such as Touriga National and
Baga has left it with a point of difference

for which it is at last being recognised.

Most of Germany’s finest vineyards lie as far
north as grapes can be persuaded to ripen.
The vineyards, unfit for normal agriculture,
would otherwise be forest or bare mountain.
Whilst the chances of such sites producing
some of the world’s finest white wines look
slim, they do manage it, indeed Germany’s
finest wines stamp their quality with a racy
authority that no-one can imitate.
Riesling, arguably the most capable of all

white grapes, maintains its varietal character

while reflecting the terroir of its site.
Therefore whilst all German Rieslings have
that balance of tingling fruit and refreshing
acidity, there are clear regional differences.
The steep dark slate slopes of the Mosel Valley
produce the lightest Rieslings with particularly
firm, steely examples coming from its tributaries,
the Saar and Ruwer. The south-facing slopes of
the Rheingau are drier and sunnier and as a result,
the wines are slightly fuller. The underrated Nahe
lies in between the Mosel and Rheingau both
stylistically and geographically, while the large
Rheinhessen region can produce firm, full and
structured Rieslings. The Pfalz region further south
is warmer and so, not surprisingly, the wines are
slightly richer and more Alsace-like in character.
This is a country that still fights its demons, the
1970’s and 80’s were disastrous for its quality
reputation. However, Australia and New Zealand
have made Riesling fashionable again and Germany
is working its way back into international favour.

Central & Eastern Europe
Austria and Hungary seem to be in a perpetual
state of wine revival. Our confidence in wine
seems to fade as we edge east into Europe,
yet both countries offer something unique
in terms of grape varieties and style.
Austria’s modern array of intensely pure, dry
wines have more in common with the wines
of Alsace than Germany, whilst having their
own distinct personality. There is something
of the freshness of the Rhine about them, but
Central & Eastern Europe

also a touch of fieriness and high flavour.

Hungary is leading the longed-for awakening
of Central and Eastern Europe from its
communist past. For centuries, Hungary has
had a distinct food and wine culture, the most
defined wine laws and developed industry
of any country east of Germany. Whilst its
ability to produce delicate, light white wines
is being proven, its legendary Tokaji remains
the nation’s main vinous talking point.
In the Eastern Mediterranean, Lebanon is
most famous for one winery, Chateau Musar.
However the Bekaa Valley, ravaged by war, has
in its high altitude sites the potential to produce
fresh wines of wonderful aromatic profile,
unspoilt by sunbaked flavours and a number
of new wineries are exploiting its potential.

In 1152, England acquired Bordeaux through
the marriage of Henry II to Eleanor of Aquitaine.
With it began our fascination with the
international wine industry. However, our interest
overseas resulted in a rapid disappearance
of the vineyards that had scattered England
since the Middle Ages. England therefore
can justifiably be considered a ‘New World’
producing nation as modern viticulture began
at Hambledon in Hampshire in the 1950’s.

Winemaking in this country is at last being

taken seriously; hobby vineyards ran out
of money fast and have been replaced by
commercial projects with high levels of technical
knowledge. Global warming is also having its
effect and the potential of the UK as a quality
producing nation improves by the year.
Our sparkling wines get close to emulating
Champagne due to a vein of the same chalk soil
which runs under the channel and into Sussex
and Kent and an average annual temperature
difference of less than 1°C. In the South West,
Germanic hybrids continue to dominate the still
wines and produce delicious aromatic wines.

South Africa
To the casual observer, the Cape winelands
may look just as they did in the decades
running up to the end of Apartheid; dominant
mountains, wild seas and vivid green pastures
dotted with the brilliant white facades of
300 year old Cape Dutch homesteads. The
reality is that the vineyards, cellars, and the
wines have changed out of all recognition.
The Cape boasts the oldest geology in the
wine-growing world, much is also made of the
South Africa

fact that these soils nurture the richest floral

kingdom on earth. In this region a collision of
warm African air with the cool Atlantic creates
a perfect environment for grape growing.
The KWV, the giant co-operative designed to
provide a market and control prices during
Apartheid, inhibited independent estates from
starting up and did little for the region’s quality.
However, since 1994 a new generation of young
winemakers who have travelled the world and
soaked up techniques and inspiration are in
control and the results have been incredible.
After decades of turmoil, the South African
wine industry has a happy ending in sight.

Australia is bigger, hotter and younger than
the rest of the wine world, but what really sets
it apart is its sheer dynamism. Now the largest
exporter to the UK, its fruit-driven wines and
value for money have charmed a nation.
Australia has been criticised for its industrial
approach to wine production and a lack of
individual character that has come from a
tendency to blend too readily (even Australia’s
most notable wine ‘Penfolds Grange’ is an

ever-changing blend of varieties and vineyard

sites). Recently however, more and more single-
vineyard wines are coming out of Australia as
producers recognise the importance of terroir.
South Australia is the main wine state; the
ancient Shiraz vines of the Barossa Valley
produce the most concentrated of red wines.
Riesling, grown in the Clare Valley on slate
reminiscent of Germany’s Mosel Valley, has
established itself as a New World classic.
Coonawarra offers one of the world’s most
concrete explanations of the word terroir
through its distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon’s
grown on a distinct strip of terra-rossa soil.
Elsewhere the cities of Sydney and Melbourne
have their adjoining wine regions in the form of
the Hunter and Yarra Valley. Close to Perth, the
wine regions of Western Australia are cooled
by the brisk sea breezes from the Southern
Ocean and result in some of the cleanest,
most refreshing whites and reds of Australia.

New Zealand
Few countries have quite such a defined image as
New Zealand. Producing only 0.3% of the world’s
crop, its importance comes from the admiration
the UK consumer in particular has for its wines.
The New Zealand wine industry is not only very
new, it is also modern in terms of the styles of
wine it produces. In 1960 the country had only
1000 acres of vines, mainly in Auckland, largely
planted with hybrids. Today there are over
55 000 acres planted and over 550 producers.
New Zealand

For such a small and ocean-bound country,

New Zealand offers a remarkable diversity of
climate which has allowed it to succeed with
distinctive varietals, most notably Sauvignon
Blanc and Pinot Noir which have not been
successful in other New World regions.
Marlborough at the top of the South Island is
the largest and most well known wine region
(the home of Cloudy Bay), where distinctive
and exemplary Sauvignon Blancs are produced
as well as high quality Chardonnay.
Today New Zealand is considered as the
leading source of Pinot Noir outside Burgundy,
with such regions as Martinborough and
Central Otago producing wonderfully pure,
intense and beautifully balanced wine.

South America
After Europe, South America is the world’s most
important wine producing continent. It is the
oldest New World wine producer and its history
is heavily influenced by immigrants and their
descendents, initially Spanish and Portuguese
and more recently Italians, French, and Germans.
Until the mid-nineties Argentina had almost no
international aspirations for its wine industry and
produced vast quantities of mediocre wine. The
last decade has witnessed incredible change
South America

to make it one of the world’s most interesting

sources of quality wine. The country’s vineyards
sit alongside the Andes, their thin mountain air
barely resisting the sun’s rays. Malbec is the
country’s favoured red, a grape that struggled
for reputation in France, here produces one
of South America’s most compelling wines.
Geographically Chile is one of the world’s most
isolated nations. Pencil-thin it has the Andes to
the east, Pacific to the west, Atacama Desert
to the north and Antarctica to the south. The
fertile and fruitful strip is climatically perfect
for growing grapes and its remoteness has
prevented the arrival of the deadly Phylloxera
louse. Compared with Argentina, the vineyards
of Chile are lower-lying and their wines earthier.
Many vineyards are planted with red and white
grapes and the resulting profusion of styles has
created a reputation for reliability rather than
creativity. The last few years has seen a growing
understanding of regional differences within
Chile and the quality and interest of the wine it
produces seems to improve with every vintage.

North America
Prohibition in the middle of the last century stunted
the growth of the wine industry in America.
However the last four decades have seen a rapid
catch-up as nearly every state has its own offering
of vineyards and gleaming new wineries.
California is still the capital of North American
wine production, producing over 90% of the
total. The States’ vineyard variation comes not
from latitude but from the mountains which lie
between the vineyards and the Pacific, preventing
North America

the sea air and fog moderating the climate.

Regions like Napa, Sonoma and Carneros are
now considered classic, although there are 100
different AVA’s (America Viticultural Areas) in
total. Fashion plays an obvious role in a state
like California and many of the cult wineries
which command four figure dollar price tags
per bottle did not even exist in the 1980’s.
In the UK market, the difference between the
cheaper ‘jug-wine’ that fills supermarket aisles and
the expensive boutique estates could not be more
obvious. This has left the market confused about
what California really offers, with most of us only
experiencing the huge brands deplete of quality or
regional interest. However, a downturn in the US
economy effecting domestic consumption, combined
with a weakening dollar has resulted in an increasing
amount of quality wine reaching our shores at an
affordable price. We are discovering that this is
winemaking heaven and that somewhere between
Washington’s Pugent Sound and Los Angeles exists
the perfect environment for every grape variety
that has ever been grown, vinified or bottled.

Fortified Wines
The fortunes of Sherry and Port are tied up
with historical patronage and date back to a
period when England either traded with its
neighbours or met them head on in battle.
Consequently, Port’s emergence as a wine
region owed more to an ongoing 18th century
European power struggle than it did to any
particular refinement in Georgian taste.
This sense of history pervades the town of
Oporto but as you move along the Douro River
Fortified Wine

to the Baixo Gorge the vibrant city is left behind

and the dramatically steep and primitive valley
becomes more impressive with every turn. This
is hard county to work, but the results are worth
the effort. Port remains a completely unique
product, under-valued and under-priced.
The rolling chalk hills of Jerez and its proximity
to the Atlantic means the labour is less brutish.
Chalk’s ability to ration water and impart its
own mineral quality to the wine is as vital to the
growers of Jerez as it is to those of Champagne,
so despite marking the northern and southern
limits of European viticulture, both regions stay
within the bounds of the same terroir driven faith.

Sweet Wine
There is a saying in the wine trade that you
can make poor wine from great quality grapes,
but you cannot make great wine from poor
grapes. It emphasises the importance of the raw
ingredients in wine production, highlighting the
fact that no winemaker, however capable can
create wine of real quality without having ripe
grapes, balanced in acids and tannins that have a
character which can be reflected in the final wine.
Whilst the ‘great grapes’ analogy works for most
Sweet Wine

wines, it is one that is difficult to defend if you

ever have a chance to see the black, heavily
rotted grapes that are hand harvested from the
vineyards of Sauternes before they are pressed
and slowly fermented into one of the world’s
greatest sweet wines. Hanging on the vine, the
grapes covered in a thick fungal mould look
unpleasant to say the least, yet the juice within
is some of the wine world’s most precious.
Fine sweet wines are made in a number of
methods. The concentrating effect on both
sugar and acidity of Botrytis Cinerea (also
known as noble rot) certainly produces some
of the finest, but many world class sweet
wines are produced without its influence.
What is uniform is the patience, care and
pure passion that goes into sweet wine
production. Undervalued, they are some of
the wine world’s most fascinating creations.
