2011 - Le G De Guiraud Bordeaux Blanc
"Lovely peach, persimmon and pear flavors glide along, with a whiff of toast on the creamy yet defined finish. -JM" (Web - 2012) - 90-93 Pts Wine Spectator
"Bright straw-yellow. Enticing nose of fresh citrus, pineapple and dried herbs. Show more sauvignon blanc-derived flavors on the palate as well, offering creamy notes of yellow melon, orange jam and candied citrus zest. Finishes smooth and very long, with an almost smoky note that had me thinking some noble rot might have snuck its way in. About a third of this wine was barrel-fermented in new oak. A very good dry white from Sauternes." (08/12) - 90-93 Pts Ian Dagata - International Wine Cellar
"70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon. Mostly on sandy gravel. A third is barrel fermented in new oak, the rest in one and two-year-old barrels, but only for three to eight weeks. Fresh, bright citrus with a herbal Sauvignon Blanc aroma to the fore, creamy too. Zesty with rich creamy spice and orange in the mid palate too - almost as if there were some noble rot though I don't think there is. Unexpectedly rich after the nose. Long spicy finish. Drink from 2013-2019 (JH)" - 16.5 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages.
"G de Chateau Guiraud is produced from 15 ha, constiting in 70% Sauvignon and 30% Semillon (rootstock Riparia, R 110, 3309, 161 49), with a planting density of 6600 vines/ha and an average age of 15 years. "G" is a dry white wine made of ripe but not mouldy grapes."
"The grapes are harvested choosing the ripest bunches or portions of bunches. Excluding all moulding or green grapes. A second selection through the vines may be necessary. After pressing and keeping only the very first juice, the juice is clarified at a low temperature (10 degrees C) for 24 hours. The fermentation starts about 12/13 degrees C and finishes at about 19 degrees C. It occurs in oak barrels and the lees are regularly stirred for the first 3-4 months. Barrel aging usually lasts for 9 months." - Winery
2010 - Di Giovanna Viognier
"Following in the footsteps of our Great Grandfather Cristoforo Ciaccio who planted the first vineyards in 1860 and aged his wines in the cellar of the old farmhouse Fiuminello, the Di Giovanna family has continued to cultivate its vineyards with unwavering dedication and pride for generations."
"In 1985, Aurelio Di Giovanna and his wife Barbara, initiated in-depth study of their mico-climates and soils. Following careful cloning and testing they identified the vines best suited for each vineyard. Each property was delinated into 5 unique vineyard sites: Miccina, Gerbino, and Paradiso at 350-480m above sea level in the village of Contessa Entellina (PA). The Fiuminello and San Giacomo vineyards flourish at 700-830m above sea level in the mountains surrounding the town of Sambuca di Sicilia (AG)."
"The Di Giovanna family is committed to organic practices in their vineyards and winery, preserving their land and history. All of their products are certified organic through Suolo e Salute srl. Since 1997." - Importer
"The Di Giovanna's have been viticulturists for more than 5 generations in Sicily, which explains the extreme passion with which Gunther and Klaus approach their daily task. Father Sicilian, mother German, results in an energetic though slightly atypical mix of hard working attitude and straight- shooting intuition. This now fully organic estate, worthy of the help of Riccardo Cotarella, is as close to a rising star in Sicily as we can imagine."
"The estate is located almost at Sicily's geographic center, above the city of Sambuca which brings back memories of Visconti's 'Il Gattopardo'. With vineyards located high above the floating land, at the base of a rough cliff, two brothers of German/Sicilian origin fight for the culture this land once represented. Getting there is a different story: Only after substantial damage to the bottom of your car, or a long hike will you be able to access these beautifully remote high altitude vineyards that are managed in full respect of organic farming principles." - Importer
