Robert Parker "Displaying toasty, yeasty white peach and peanut aromas, the 2005 Chardonnay Vin de Pays d’Oc is an oily-textured pleasure machine. Thick, spicy, and expressive, it is riddled with apples, pears, and melon balls. It should be drunk over the next 2-3 years." (2005 Vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Soft, light and fresh, this wine has attractive acidity as well as crisp, green flavors. There's a touch of vanilla which broadens it out. It's a solid, ready-to-drink wine." (2002 Vintage)

Winemaker Notes: A pale, golden straw colour. The nose is powerful and delicate, with intense pear, fig, pineapple and roasted hazelnut aromas and discreet hints of honey. Unctuous and lively on the palate, with hints of fig and vanilla. We recommend to taste this wine at 9-10 °C.

Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais). Les Vins Georges Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually. The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines. In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf, who is considered to be one of the key specialists in Beaujolais, its terroir and its wine, and has shifted production to focus more on Beaujolais Nouveau.

Pays d'Oc is the IGP for red, white and rosé wines that are made in a large area on the southern coast of France. The catchment area for the IGP corresponds roughly to the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region – one of the largest winegrowing areas in France. The region covers all the wines that are not made under the strict laws that govern the AOC-level appellations in the regions: among them Corbières, Minervois and the Languedoc appellation itself.

The Pays d'Oc IGP is arguably the most important in France, producing the majority of the country's IGP wines. Five separate departments fall under the IGP (the Hérault, Aude, Gard, Pyrénées-Orientales and six communes in southern Lozère), which is delimited by administrative boundaries rather than geographical ones.

The Pays d'Oc area has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters. Most of the rainfall is compressed into spring and autumn.

The region's viticultural history dates back to Roman times but the area is also know for its progressive approach to wine production. The Charmat method of producing sparkling wine was developed by Jean-Eugène Charmat at Montpelier in the early 1900s and, as mentioned, many producers adopt a New World approach to production and marketing. Some domaines will even bring in winemakers from Australia and New Zealand.

Pays d'Oc IGP wines were previously labeled as Vin de Pays d'Oc (established in 1987), although since 2009, the VDP category has been phased out of French wine laws. It has now been replaced with Indication Géographique Protégée, a category designed as part of a standardised wine-labeling convention in the European Union.

Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) is an historic and highly respected wine region in eastern France. Burgundy wines have long had devout followers throughout the world and continue to do so today. Although Bordeaux produces about four times as much wine every year, Burgundy’s estimated 74,000 acres (30,000ha) of vineyards are considered to be of equal importance, producing some of the most exclusive wines on Earth.

The two key grape varieties of Burgundy are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, both members of the extended 'Pinot' family of grape varieties. There are others too, of course, like Aligoté, Pinot Gris, Gamay, and Sauvignon Blanc but the primary focus of Burgundy’s production is Pinot Noir for Bourgogne Rouge and Chardonnay for Bourgogne Blanc. Located in the east-central part of France, Burgundy has 6 primary wine growing areas; Chablis – “shab-lee”. Côte de Nuits – the night slope, Côte de Beaune – the slope of Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise – the Chalon slope, Mâconnais – the region of Mâcon, and parts of the Southern Beaujolais.

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Bolder, richer, full-bodied and buttery Chardonnays are made using oak and are produced in California, Burgundy, and Australia. Unoaked chardonnays such as Chablis and those produced in Chile, New Zealand, and other parts of France are leaner and often crisp and mineraly, with delicate flavors. By law, if a label says “Chablis,” it must be Chardonnay.

Wine Advocate “Georges Duboeuf is the #1 selling brand of Beaujolais in the world” (2009-2013)

Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais). Les Vins Georges Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually.

The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines. In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf, who is considered to be one of the key specialists in Beaujolais, its terroir and its wine, and has shifted production to focus more on Beaujolais Nouveau. No wonder Drinks International calls it "One of the “Ten Most Admired Wine Brands” in the world."

Beaujolais is an important wine region in eastern France, immediately to the south of Burgundy, famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from Gamay. The widespread plantings of Gamay here make Beaujolais one of the few regions of the world to be so focused on a single grape variety.

The Beaujolais region's rise to prominence began in the 19th Century and was earned by its youthful, fruity nouveau wines. With no barrel aging at all, these are sold and consumed only weeks after harvest and are officially released on the third Thursday in November.

Gamay is a grape variety that is most famous for producing the light, fruit-driven red wines of Beaujolais. While the variety offers fresh, red-fruit and candied aromas, it typically delivers little in the way of flavor concentration and body weight, giving light, simple wines.

Matthew Jukes - Top 100 Australian Wines "I am a bona fide fan of this wine and it has featured in previous editions of 100 Best. This is because it is one of the juiciest and most lustrous of the ‘lightweight’ syrah brigade. This is a style of wine which few people have experienced but I know that legions of wine lovers will adore its flavour stance on their palate. Char and earth notes puncture the plummy core, but this is not a slow-moving, ponderous wine. Far from it, this is a plush number with a slippery texture and it bounces along gleefully across the palate, urging you to take another sip. While I love wines which are designed to swirl and contemplate, and there are many in this tome, this is a wine for drinking at speed with good mates and food you eat with your hand!”

Ralph Kyte-Powell – Australia's The Age Newspaper Wine Column “A deliciously harmonious, fruit driven shiraz. Dark plum and lightly spicy aromas lead through a palate of easy texture and good length. So drinkable that a bottle can disappear with unseemly haste, so beware!”

James Halliday ".....gold medal Melbourne Wine Awards, trophy Best Shiraz Yarra Valley Wine Show. Made in that trademark Will o' the Wisp style patented by Innocent Bystander, red and black fruits, fine sesame tannins, spices of all kinds, and a kiss of textural oak. Obvious drop dead bargain." (2015 Vintage)

Multi-award winning, Innocent Bystander has a reputation for delivering some of Victoria's famous Yarra Valley’s most consistent, over-performing, affordable, varietal wines.

Using 100% hand-picked fruit, wild ferments and gravity-flow winemaking techniques, Innocent Bystander wines are made with minimal filtration and fining, and reflect the climate, soil and topography of the Yarra Valley.

The owner, Phil Sexton came to wine via beer. He started Little Creatures, a favourite of Aussie hopheads, in Perth (Western Australia).

Yarra Valley is a region with a cool climate, best known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Yarra Valley is an hour’s drive east of Melbourne.

James Suckling "A fruity, polished red with creamy tannins and softness and attractiveness that makes you want to drink it. It’s medium-to full-bodied with round tannins and a delicious finish. "

Wine Enthusiast "Notes of anisette, black raspberry and leather saddle introduce this spicy, savory blend of Grenache and Syrah. It's fresh in fruit but rounded and supple on the palate, with a warming finish edged by fine, feathery tannins."

James Suckling "A fruity, polished red with creamy tannins and softness and attractiveness that makes you want to drink it. It’s medium-to full-bodied with round tannins and a delicious finish." (2018 vintage)

The Winemaker "The delicately oaky nose offers up aromas of sweet spices which subtly mingle with notes of blackberry and blackcurrant. On the palate, there is a concentration of aromas underpinned by pronounced, yet lovely smooth, tannins." (2016 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Pristine blackberry and blueberry flavors are rich and mouthfilling in this ripe yet freshly composed wine. It's straightforward and fruity but hints of bramble and earth lend nuance. The moderately long finish is framed by fine, delicate tannins." (2015 vintage)

Beacon Wine "This is an old-world style medium-bodied wine with good fruit balanced by more peppery spice. It has a lightly oaked influence that allows the fruit to shine through. The fine grained tannins are engaging and keep you coming back for another sip." (2015 vintage)

The Guide Hachette des Vins (referenced in the above) is France's best-selling, and one of France's oldest wine guides. Considered France's most authoritative wine guide and commonly referred to as the bible of the French wine industry. This wine has received consistent star ratings for multiple vintages from this prestigious authority.

Grenache noir (50%) Syrah (50%)

This wine comes from parcels selected from the finest terroirs of the southern Rhône Valley Region, extending from Montélimar to Nîmes. The Grenache and Syrah vines are planted on clay-limestone plains which are particularly well exposed and are managed to obtain a yield of around 40 hl/ha.

The grapes are entirely de-stemmed and placed in temperature-controlled vats to macerate for around 18 days during which time only pumping-over operations are carried out. 50% of the wine is aged in vat, and 50% in 450L barrels previously used for 1 or 2 vintages, for a period of 12 months, before being blended with the vat-aged wine.

Originally from Bordeaux, the Lavau family has been involved with winemaking for generations, and have had vineyards ranging from Bordeaux to Tunisia. In 1964 they were seduced by the richness and quality of the Provencal soil, and settled down to make wine in the Rhone Valley.

The cellars of Lavau are currently managed by Benoit and Frederic Lavau, who work in partnership with 350 different grape growers. Benoit is a frequent visitor to Singapore and Pop Up Wine events.

Bob Campbell "Fresh, punchy sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, green capsicum, cut grass, passionfruit and nettle flavours. Smooth-textured wine with good weight and a lingering finish."

Wine Enthusiast "This is an outgoing and crowd-pleasing Sauvignon with a firecracker of lime, guava, passionfruit, tomato leaf and bell pepper aromas. A big dollop of crunchy acidity is counterbalanced by subtle textural weight and a juicy stone fruit refreshment flows through to the finish." (2021 vintage)

Tim Atkin MW, International Wine Challenge "Classic fragrant aromas of gooseberries and nettles...well rounded with a crisp finish." (2020 vintage)

Decanter World Wine Awards "A tropical, richer style offering mango, passionfruit and peaches; there's some nice weight and roundness here. Medium finish." (2019 Vintage)

Wine Spectator "Shows off fragrant lemongrass flavors, mingling with citrus and mango details. Offers a refreshing finish and grace notes of fresh ginger." (2019 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This opens with a classic Marlborough SB nose of lifted citrus, stone fruit and bell pepper with herbal undertones. There's zippy acidity and a slippery texture on the mouthfeel. It finishes with lovely fresh citrus and herbal characters. " (2019 vintage)

Bob Campbell "Light, tangy sauvignon blanc with green-grassy, capsicum and gooseberry flavours supported by green apple-like acidity." (2018 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This needs time in glass to aerate and to show its passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit and green herbed characters. Even then, the acidity is a little searing, just barely kept in check by some fruit weight." (2017 vintage)

Wine Spectator "The tangy notes of lemon-lime are appealing, accented by lemongrass and ruby grapefruit details. Finishes with a hint of juicy acidity." (2014 vintage)

The Winemaker "Quintessentially Marlborough, the wine is strikingly vibrant with aromatics of lime zest, kiwifruit, orange blossom and a subtle note of rockmelon. The palate is soft and rich initially, then carried by juicy acidity to a long refreshing finish. My philosophy is simple source outstanding fruit from exceptional vineyard sites."

Crowded House is a multi-award winning, Marlborough based winery. The name - Crowded House - could be a nod to the famous Kiwi rock band, but actually stems from the crowded, yet unique Marlborough region and the winemaker's mission to "stand out from this crowded world of wine." Crowded House wines are fresh, approachable and expressive with clean, crisp aromatics.

Marlborough is by far New Zealand's most important wine region. Situated at the north-eastern tip of the South Island, this dry, sunny region produces around three-quarters of all New Zealand wine. It is particularly famous for its pungent, zesty Sauvignon Blanc - widely considered by critics to be the best Sauvignon currently produced anywhere on the planet. Commercial-scale viticulture began in Marlborough the 1970s – it conquered the world within 25 years!

Sauvignon Blanc is currently the bestselling white wine in Singapore. It pairs well with white meats including Chicken, Pork and Turkey. It also complements fish.

Sauvignon Blanc is a white-wine grape from western France, now successfully grown in emerging and established wine regions all over the world. While the grape may be more readily associated with the Loire Valley (for its pivotal role in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé), it is more likely to have originated from Bordeaux, where it is typically blended with Semillon.

In the late 20th Century, a new region began to gain a reputation as one of the great Sauvignon Blanc regions of the world: Marlborough, at the northern tip of New Zealand's South Island. The rapid development of the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dramatic events in the world of wine.

Outside France and New Zealand, the variety has been relatively successful in New World regions such as California, Chile (particularly the Casablanca and San Antonio valleys) and South Africa. Even in Australia, the variety can thrive in the cooler coastal areas of the south. In Europe, the cool, sunny sub-alpine slopes of Alto Adige and Friuli in northern Italy produce high-quality Sauvignon Blanc, which is used in blends with native varieties like Friulano or on its own.

This exclusive collection brings together a curated selection of exceptional wines, each distinguished by accolades from the prestigious 4 highly-rated red wines and 2 stunning white wine - all rated by the toughest critics from Wine Spectator.

James Suckling "A fruity, polished red with creamy tannins and softness and attractiveness that makes you want to drink it. It’s medium-to full-bodied with round tannins and a delicious finish. "

Wine Enthusiast "Notes of anisette, black raspberry and leather saddle introduce this spicy, savory blend of Grenache and Syrah. It's fresh in fruit but rounded and supple on the palate, with a warming finish edged by fine, feathery tannins."

James Suckling "A fruity, polished red with creamy tannins and softness and attractiveness that makes you want to drink it. It’s medium-to full-bodied with round tannins and a delicious finish." (2018 vintage)

The Winemaker "The delicately oaky nose offers up aromas of sweet spices which subtly mingle with notes of blackberry and blackcurrant. On the palate, there is a concentration of aromas underpinned by pronounced, yet lovely smooth, tannins." (2016 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Pristine blackberry and blueberry flavors are rich and mouthfilling in this ripe yet freshly composed wine. It's straightforward and fruity but hints of bramble and earth lend nuance. The moderately long finish is framed by fine, delicate tannins." (2015 vintage)

Beacon Wine "This is an old-world style medium-bodied wine with good fruit balanced by more peppery spice. It has a lightly oaked influence that allows the fruit to shine through. The fine grained tannins are engaging and keep you coming back for another sip." (2015 vintage)

The Guide Hachette des Vins (referenced in the above) is France's best-selling, and one of France's oldest wine guides. Considered France's most authoritative wine guide and commonly referred to as the bible of the French wine industry. This wine has received consistent star ratings for multiple vintages from this prestigious authority.

Grenache noir (50%) Syrah (50%)

This wine comes from parcels selected from the finest terroirs of the southern Rhône Valley Region, extending from Montélimar to Nîmes. The Grenache and Syrah vines are planted on clay-limestone plains which are particularly well exposed and are managed to obtain a yield of around 40 hl/ha.

The grapes are entirely de-stemmed and placed in temperature-controlled vats to macerate for around 18 days during which time only pumping-over operations are carried out. 50% of the wine is aged in vat, and 50% in 450L barrels previously used for 1 or 2 vintages, for a period of 12 months, before being blended with the vat-aged wine.

Originally from Bordeaux, the Lavau family has been involved with winemaking for generations, and have had vineyards ranging from Bordeaux to Tunisia. In 1964 they were seduced by the richness and quality of the Provencal soil, and settled down to make wine in the Rhone Valley.

The cellars of Lavau are currently managed by Benoit and Frederic Lavau, who work in partnership with 350 different grape growers. Benoit is a frequent visitor to Singapore and Pop Up Wine events.

Bob Campbell "Fresh, punchy sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, green capsicum, cut grass, passionfruit and nettle flavours. Smooth-textured wine with good weight and a lingering finish."

Wine Enthusiast "This is an outgoing and crowd-pleasing Sauvignon with a firecracker of lime, guava, passionfruit, tomato leaf and bell pepper aromas. A big dollop of crunchy acidity is counterbalanced by subtle textural weight and a juicy stone fruit refreshment flows through to the finish." (2021 vintage)

Tim Atkin MW, International Wine Challenge "Classic fragrant aromas of gooseberries and nettles...well rounded with a crisp finish." (2020 vintage)

Decanter World Wine Awards "A tropical, richer style offering mango, passionfruit and peaches; there's some nice weight and roundness here. Medium finish." (2019 Vintage)

Wine Spectator "Shows off fragrant lemongrass flavors, mingling with citrus and mango details. Offers a refreshing finish and grace notes of fresh ginger." (2019 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This opens with a classic Marlborough SB nose of lifted citrus, stone fruit and bell pepper with herbal undertones. There's zippy acidity and a slippery texture on the mouthfeel. It finishes with lovely fresh citrus and herbal characters. " (2019 vintage)

Bob Campbell "Light, tangy sauvignon blanc with green-grassy, capsicum and gooseberry flavours supported by green apple-like acidity." (2018 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This needs time in glass to aerate and to show its passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit and green herbed characters. Even then, the acidity is a little searing, just barely kept in check by some fruit weight." (2017 vintage)

Wine Spectator "The tangy notes of lemon-lime are appealing, accented by lemongrass and ruby grapefruit details. Finishes with a hint of juicy acidity." (2014 vintage)

The Winemaker "Quintessentially Marlborough, the wine is strikingly vibrant with aromatics of lime zest, kiwifruit, orange blossom and a subtle note of rockmelon. The palate is soft and rich initially, then carried by juicy acidity to a long refreshing finish. My philosophy is simple source outstanding fruit from exceptional vineyard sites."

Crowded House is a multi-award winning, Marlborough based winery. The name - Crowded House - could be a nod to the famous Kiwi rock band, but actually stems from the crowded, yet unique Marlborough region and the winemaker's mission to "stand out from this crowded world of wine." Crowded House wines are fresh, approachable and expressive with clean, crisp aromatics.

Marlborough is by far New Zealand's most important wine region. Situated at the north-eastern tip of the South Island, this dry, sunny region produces around three-quarters of all New Zealand wine. It is particularly famous for its pungent, zesty Sauvignon Blanc - widely considered by critics to be the best Sauvignon currently produced anywhere on the planet. Commercial-scale viticulture began in Marlborough the 1970s – it conquered the world within 25 years!

Sauvignon Blanc is currently the bestselling white wine in Singapore. It pairs well with white meats including Chicken, Pork and Turkey. It also complements fish.

Sauvignon Blanc is a white-wine grape from western France, now successfully grown in emerging and established wine regions all over the world. While the grape may be more readily associated with the Loire Valley (for its pivotal role in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé), it is more likely to have originated from Bordeaux, where it is typically blended with Semillon.

In the late 20th Century, a new region began to gain a reputation as one of the great Sauvignon Blanc regions of the world: Marlborough, at the northern tip of New Zealand's South Island. The rapid development of the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dramatic events in the world of wine.

Outside France and New Zealand, the variety has been relatively successful in New World regions such as California, Chile (particularly the Casablanca and San Antonio valleys) and South Africa. Even in Australia, the variety can thrive in the cooler coastal areas of the south. In Europe, the cool, sunny sub-alpine slopes of Alto Adige and Friuli in northern Italy produce high-quality Sauvignon Blanc, which is used in blends with native varieties like Friulano or on its own.
