Wine Club De Vin (Canada's largest wine club)" Intense aromas of green leaf, gooseberries and greengages with limes, curry leaves and fennel: the same flavours show on the palate creating a flavoursome and distinctive wine."

The Winemaker “From the near perfect 2018 vintage this wine is typical of the style that comes from Margaret River tropical fruit mineral layers, and crisp acidity.”

Marko Schwinn "This Gold medal winning wine has intense aromas of tropical fruit on the nose followed by a tight combination of juicy fruit and minerality on the palate. It is mouth filling with plenty of textural layers and lively acidity. This is a very well structured wine. Even the most one eyed Marlborough NZ fan will think about switching to this Chapman Grove." (2016 vintage)

Since the release of the Chapman Grove range in 2006, Chapman Grove wines have been awarded 4 Trophies, 3 Top Gold, 3 Gold, 8 Silver and 39 Bronze Medals.

Chapman Grove Wines is a small winery focussed on making limited edition fine wines from Margaret River, Western Australia.

Described by Australia's N#1 wine critic, James Halliday as "a very successful venture", the winery is known for its highly rated wines and was established in 2005 by an esteemed veteran of the industry, Ron Fraser. Pop Up Wine has secured back vintages of a collection of its highly rated wines.

Chapman Grove focuses on producing exceptional fruit which is all 100% estate grown to create its world-class wines. Its range includes varieties most suited to the Margaret River climate, with French oak used to bring out flavours of the terroir, creating a true expression of the region.

The winery achieved the highly coveted 5 Red Star rating from James Halliday within three short years of first entering the Wine Companion in 2009. Since the release of the Chapman Grove range in 2006, Chapman Grove wines have been awarded 4 Trophies, 3 Top Gold, 3 Gold, 8 Silver and 39 Bronze Medals.

Margaret River is a highly respected wine region in the southwestern corner of Western Australia. Famous for having a more "European" wine style than its counterparts across the country,

Margaret River has made its name through its unusually refined Cabernet Sauvignon (often blended with Merlot), gamey Shiraz, intensely citrusy Chardonnay, and refreshingly grassy "SSB'" blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Margaret River's winemakers are particularly proud of it's temperate, coastal location – which is very similar to that of Bordeaux.

The Sauvignon Blanc taste is one of the most identifiable in the world of white wines for a few reasons. First, it always has crisp, high acidity. Second, it has a chemical compound called pyrazine which gives grassy, herbal or bell pepper flavors. When grown in cooler climates or picked early, the herbaceous green character is most prominent. In warmer climates or allowed to hang longer on the vine, the pyrazine character diminishes in favor of riper fruit flavors ranging from grapefruit, to passion fruit and guava.

Wine Spectator "Shows ripe peach, melon and yellow apple flavors accented by mango and orange blossom notes on a smooth, juicy frame, while pretty spice notes of cardamom and honeysuckle linger."

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion "When it comes to riesling, Pikes has it down pat with its several styles and tiers. This is a ripper. Bright and so succulent with lime juice and a squirt of Meyer lemon, in a lighter style. There's an appealing softness throughout, matched to refreshing light acidity. Try stopping at one glass." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "Super fragrant with some spicy aromas, as well as crushed stones and fine lime. The palate has a supple, fleshy and softly presented core of apple and lime. Easy and charming." (2020 vintage)

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate "...it's a fresh, mouthwatering example of Australian Riesling, offering intense citrus aromas, hints of honey and peach on the medium-bodied palate and a long, fine finish." (2019 vintage)

Wine Enthusias "This cuvée is a zingy, regionally expressive drop. Bright notes of apple, lemon and lime are underscored by honey and spice. Rapier-like acidity dominates the palate, but there's plenty of fruit here, too. Balance it out with a Thai curry or an equally spicy, creamy dish." (2019 vintage)

Wine Spectator "Candied pear, lemon drop and succulent ripe peach flavors are intense, harmonious and wonderfully juicy, with lemon blossom and lime zest lingering on the long, expressive finish. " (2019 vintage)

Vinous "Pale yellow. Fresh citrus fruit and floral qualities on the incisive nose, along with a chalky mineral overtone. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering racy lemon-lime and bitter quinine flavors and a spicy touch of ginger. Finishes silky and long, with the floral note sneaking back in." (2019 vintage)

Pikes is a prestigious winery in South Australia's Clare Valley, established in 1984 by Neil and Andrew Pike, whose viticultural roots go back to the late 1800s. Situated in the picturesque Clare Valley, the Estate is comprised of approximately 100 hectares of rolling slopes in Polish Hill River, an eastern sub-region of the Clare Valley.
Known for its cool climate and diverse grape varieties, Pikes showcases premium wines with distinct characters and flavors due to the unique terroir and altitude.

After an almost 20-year career with Penfolds Wines and Southcorp Wine Group, Andrew joined Pikes on a full-time basis in 1998 to oversee viticultural operations and manage the growing family business.

Pikes is particularly renowned for its high-quality Riesling and other cool-climate wines, praised for vibrant acidity, citrus flavors, and exceptional aging potential. Whilst they are best known for world-class Riesling, they have been growing Shiraz and Cabernet for 35 years and have 20 different grape varieties planted on their estate, producing a wide range of wine styles to suit all tastes.

Pikes pride themselves on producing quality handcrafted wines, that reflect vintage, variety, and region. The Pike family has been producing quality wine, beer, and aerated waters in South Australia since 1886 it is a family tradition of which they should be very proud.

Their vineyards in Clare Valley grow various grape varieties, with a strong commitment to sustainable viticulture and environmental responsibility.

Their portfolio includes Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and unique blends, all crafted with a dedication to quality and craftsmanship. Over the years, Pikes has garnered numerous awards, establishing itself as a top producer in the Clare Valley, and gaining recognition both nationally and internationally for their excellent and consistent wines.

Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is – if the majority of top wine critics are to be believed – the world's finest white wine grape variety. The Riesling vine holds a very different place in the wine world to such great grapes as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Chardonnay. While these immensely popular varieties have conquered every corner of the winegrowing world, Riesling is conspicuously absent from the core wine regions of France, Spain and Italy. Riesling's home is the regions that trace the middle Rhine and the lower Mosel, two of Europe's great wine rivers.

Since 1925 the Straccali wine estate in Tuscany, founded Giulio Straccali, has been in the vanguard of progressive Chianti wine producers. Giulio Straccali was an expert enologist, entrepreneur, farmer and wine producer. Known as a conservationist and protector of the traditions of Chianti wines, Straccali was an admired pioneer of the region. He was instrumental in the founding of the Black Rooster Consortium and from 1942 until his death in 1969, served as Vice President. In 1978 Italo Zingarelli, founder of the Rocca delle Macie estate in Castellina in Chianti, as part of his long-term vision for the region collaborated with the Giulio Straccali winery and later purchased the winery and vineyards from the Straccali family.

Rocca delle Macìe was established in 1973, when film producer Italo Zingarelli – of Ettore Scola’s “We All Loved Each Other So Much” fame, and also the wildly popular series of films featuring comedy duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill (including “They Call Me Trinity” and “Trinity Is Still My Name”) – decided to realize his lifelong dream by acquiring the “Le Macìe” estate – extending across 93 hectares (230 acres) in all, of which only two were under vine – in order to create a winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone. The estate now extends to more than 500 hectares (1250 acres) with, in total, more than 200 (500 acres) used as vineyards and 22 (54 acres) as olive groves, subdivided across the company’s six estates: Le Macìe, Sant’Alfonso, Fizzano e le Tavolelle in the Chianti Classico Area, in addition to the Campomaccione and Casa Maria estates in the Morellino di Scansano Area (Maremma).

In Italy’s Lombardy (Lombardia) region you will find some of the most artisan, small production wines, and areas of beautiful unspoiled wine country. Nestled in Italy’s northwest, Lombardy is situated just below Switzerland and to the northeast of Piemonte. Lombardy is a significant gourmet epicenter with the highest concentration of Michelin starred restaurants in Italy. As in other regions throughout Italy, wine production was often tied to religious orders, and many monasteries and abbeys ran a wine business on the side. Today many wineries are located in converted monasteries. DOCGs in Lombardy include Franciacorta (Italy’s best bubbly), Valtellina Superiore (high altitude wines), and Sforzato di Valtellina. Some great DOCs here include Lugana and Garda, while lesser-known DOCs include Botticino (near Brescia), Moscato di Scanzo and Valcalepio (both near Bergamo), and Oltrepò Pavese (south of Pavia).

Pinot Grigio is more than just the Italian name for Pinot Gris. Although the two names refer to a single grape variety, the wine styles they represent are clearly distinct from one another.

The more refreshing Pinot Grigio style has enjoyed great success in various countries, most recently the United States, (where it is fondly nicknamed ""Greej"") and Australia. The most common descriptors of the style are ""light"", ""crisp"" and ""dry"". These characteristics are complemented by aroma notes citing lemon, green apple and blossoms.

1 x Ate Pinot Grigio 2022 - South East Australia, Australia

Winemaker "...a zesty white wine that is as refreshing as a cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer’s day. Gorgeous wine with punch acidity and flavours of lemons, limes, green apples and honeysuckle."

"Yes it sounds a little like ‘pinot gris’ and yes it tastes a little like ‘pinot gris’ but lordy lord, this pinot grigio is all sorts of different. Dry, lipsmackingly crunchy and clean, it’s got a slightly saline, green olive and jalapeno note – mineral and lean – love it!" (2019 vintage) - Yvonne Lorkin - Independent Wine Writer

Até Winery produces meticulously crafted wines from some of the premium wine growing areas of Victoria and South Australia. These wines embody the mischievous and playful nature of the Greek goddess Até. With a focus on fruit-forward profiles and generous flavours, each wine displays the hallmarks of its region and is a testament to the artistry and passion of the winemaker.

Their range includes the Até Sparkling, Até Pinot Grigio, Até Chardonnay, and Até Shiraz, each offering unique and delightful flavours that fully express the region from which they are from. There are the bright lemony notes of the Sparkling, a shining example of the winery's dedication to quality and flavour, the zesty freshness of the Pinot Grigio, and the expressive character of the Chardonnay made from South Eastern Australian grapes. The Shiraz is a deep ruby color and purple hue, with aromas and flavors of red and dark plum, boysenberry, smoky oak spices, and hints of black pepper.

All these wines exemplify the winery's commitment to quality and flavour.

The more refreshing Pinot Grigio style has enjoyed great success in various countries, most recently the United States, (where it is fondly nicknamed "Greej") and Australia. The most common descriptors of the style are "light", "crisp" and "dry". These characteristics are complemented by aroma notes citing lemon, green apple and blossoms.

The Grigio style is achieved by harvesting the grapes relatively early, in an attempt to retain as much fresh acidity as possible; the variety is naturally quite low in acidity. To retain freshness and "zing", fermentation and storage typically take place in stainless-steel tanks.

Berliner Wein Trophy
Silver - Citadellas du Vin (2013 vintage)

Sommelier Reviews "Delicious light, fruity and pleasing white..."

The Winemaker "Fresh nose of peach, pear, a hint of citrus, elegant and unctuous body, a touch of almond, citrus."

Robert Simpson "Captivating nose melds fresh herbs and cut grass with fresh peach and hints of honey and spice. Supple, rich and fresh – showing the strength of the vintage – offering a lovely touch of sweetness and just enough acidity to its flavors of peach, lemon, flowers and stone." (2018 vintage)

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.

Envyfol offers a range of wines that are well crafted and undervalued. Made with the best grapes from exceptional areas throughout France, Envyfol offers the traditional and refined quality of French wine.

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

Languedoc-Roussillon is a hugely important and historic wine region that produces over a third of French wine each year. The output of Languedoc Roussillon exceeds that of the entire United States, and has hundreds of thousands of acres under vine, growing a wide range of both red and white grapes. Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the oldest and most important wine regions in the world, with a history that stretches back millennia to the ancient Greeks, who adored its warm and humid Mediterranean climate which is ideal for viticulture.

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 minerally, with delicate flavors. By law, if a label says “Chablis,” it must be Chardonnay.

1 x Ate Chardonnay 2022 - South East Australia, Australia

Winemaker "Made from South Eastern Australia Chardonnay grapes, showcases the winery's commitment to retaining freshness and acidity. Harvested in the cool of the night, this wine offers a base of cool fermentation that results in a beautifully balanced and expressive Chardonnay."

The most common descriptors of the style are "light", "crisp" and "dry". These characteristics are complemented by aroma notes citing lemon, green apple and blossoms.

The Grigio style is achieved by harvesting the grapes relatively early, in an attempt to retain as much fresh acidity as possible; the variety is naturally quite low in acidity. To retain freshness and "zing", fermentation and storage typically take place in stainless-steel tanks.

90/100 Wine Enthusiast

Berliner Wein Trophy
Silver - Citadellas du Vin (2013 vintage)

Sommelier Reviews "Delicious light, fruity and pleasing white..."

The Winemaker "Fresh nose of peach, pear, a hint of citrus, elegant and unctuous body, a touch of almond, citrus."

Robert Simpson "Captivating nose melds fresh herbs and cut grass with fresh peach and hints of honey and spice. Supple, rich and fresh – showing the strength of the vintage – offering a lovely touch of sweetness and just enough acidity to its flavors of peach, lemon, flowers and stone." (2018 vintage)

Languedoc-Roussillon is a hugely important and historic wine region that produces over a third of French wine each year. The output of Languedoc Roussillon exceeds that of the entire United States, and has hundreds of thousands of acres under vine, growing a wide range of both red and white grapes. Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the oldest and most important wine regions in the world, with a history that stretches back millennia to the ancient Greeks, who adored its warm and humid Mediterranean climate which is ideal for viticulture.

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 minerally, with delicate flavors. By law, if a label says “Chablis,” it must be Chardonnay.
