Alana Sauvignon Blanc, the wine we all know and love. A companion to many of us after a long day as the light starts to fade. However, with this 12 bottle case, we wanted to introduce you to a great friend of Sauvignon Blanc; Riesling.
Now thankfully, you don't have to meet Riesling over Zoom, Skype, or Microsoft teams. Riesling can come over for dinner, (it loves spicy food) and stay for dessert.
We have found that many who meet this Riesling, are surprised by it's temperament and invite it over again sometime.

Alana Sauvignon Blanc, 2019
Score (Sam Kim- Wine Orbit): 91/100, 4.5/5 Stars
Fresh and nicely lifted, the bouquet shows grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, rockmelon and lemon peel characters, followed by a succulent palate that's pristine and lively. It's bright and flavoursome with excellent fruit intensity, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2022.
Alana Riesling, 2016
Score (Sam Kim- Wine Orbit): 94/100, 5/5 Stars
The fruit forms a well-concentrated heart and shows good presence, and is balanced by fresh, lacy acidity. The wine is guided by a very fine line, with good energy, leading to a long, lingering finish. This is a well-concentrated off-dry Riesling with intense flavours of lime, florals and toast, balanced acidity and a fine flow.
Alana Riesling, 2015
Score (Sam Kim- Wine Orbit): 93/100, 5/5 Stars
The mouthfeel is bright and vibrant with fresh acidity, and the wine carries along a light-textured line leading to a lingering finish. This is a gently mouthfilling medium-dry Riesling with harmonious lime, toast, honied and mineral flavours on a vibrant palate.
