Apaltagua, Riesling Reserva, Curicó Valley, 2019

This is surprisingly correct, dry and classy, showing that the Chileans are mastering coolish climate Riesling as they have Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Whilst the Casablanca Valley - which runs from the western slopes of the Andes to the cool Pacific - is better known for Sauvignon and Chardonnay, Riesling, first planted in the 1990s, can also be very successful. True dry Riesling at a fair price - grapefruit with a floral note. Now-2023

SVS is one of the nicest merchants to deal with. Fabulous choices of producer and wines, friendly cheerful service, keen prices and boundless enthusiasm. Top wine critics (eg Jancis Robinson) often rave about the SVS portfolio of wines. Simon and his team also have a 'philanthropic' soft spot for South African wines where the whole wine trade suffered not just an export ban on wine but a domestic one too for a while. You cannot go wrong with any wine in the portfolio. Buy with confidence.

I look to a wine merchant to explore wine regions in person and discover excellent producers. Then of course to put good information on their web site, to provide accessible and friendly advice and to make the buying process easy and reliable. SVS ticks all these boxes. I am a very satisfied customer.
