When you start to scratch the surface, the humble white wine is more complex than it first seems. Controversially, white wine isn’t necessarily only made from white grapes. Every grape’s flesh is white, with the skins being the culprit in dealing colour and tannin. Therefore, creativity in winery can have intriguing results for white wines. While delicate, aromatic and pretty whites serve a valuable purpose, white wines can be made in all shapes and sizes, portraying just as many, if not more, characteristics than their red counterparts.
At Sometimes Always, we focus more on a holistic approach to the value of a wine. Does it taste good? Is the producer a legend? Does it have a good story? Do you want to drink it again? Was it worth your time and money? We like to think we have navigated the politics of the industry and smoke and mirrors of trends, fads and hype to bring you a range of wines that we think taste good, from a legendary producer that has a good story that you’ll want to drink again and are worth your time and money.
