Savoie Salvation
For the first time in Ontario, GW is honoured to present these two angelic, zero-zero & MINERAL whites from Camille and Mathieu Apffel in the alpine region of Savoie! Together the pair are a study of old Jacquère vines, one plush and tongue curling, the other lithe & chiseled. Welcome to the GW family Apffels!

Jacquère, Savoie, France

What comes before the storm? The calm? A stampede? This delicious wine? For the first time in Ontario, may we bend your ears and take your tongues on a mountainous journey! Camille and Mathieu Apffel work in a zero-zero fashion, with a warm-respect and keen focus on the alluring local white grapes, altesse and jacquère. Their 4.5 hectares are packed with hearty, tenderly cared for ecosystems, a safe haven in the vast expanse of jutting mountain ranges. (not so) FUN FACT! This cuvée is named in remembrance of a day in 2019 when a violent hailstorm ravaged 80% (!!!!!) of their old jacquère vines. The leafy and vibrant jacquère is direct pressed and aged on lees to plump and propel the local grape into demure unforgettability. Underwater cave air, bee pollen, underripe pear juice, yellow kiwi skin, honey thinned butter, chiseled acid like a romantic roman nose bridge, spring water stone skipping, salted yellow dragon fruit & a harmonious consistency that undulates between thick and thin. Enjoy with red snapper ceviche – red onion, blood orange & shaved castelvetrano olive.

Jacquère, Savoie, France

‘Pandæmonium’ is the capital of Hell in John Milton's epic poem, ‘Paradise Lost’, and we wouldn’t mind going straight to hell for a singular drop of this lofty white. For the first time in Ontario, we are so proud to present this gorgeous white! Camille and Mathieu Apffel work in a zero-zero fashion (aka no additives at all!), with a laser-like focus on the alluring local white grapes, altesse and jacquère. From one of the most picturesque vineyards we have ever set foot on, the sappy, acidic jacquère is direct pressed and aged between steel and neutral oak for a bunched up Turkish towel kinda texture. Rocks baking in the underground sun, brown butter flapjack plushness melts away to tongue curling acidity, dinosaur eggshell, collecting every single grand star in New Super Mario Bros & loudly slurping an alpine stream from cupped hands. Devilishly appetizing, fit for the Infernal Council & Christopher Morningstar himself as they perch on thrones of fragmented vertebrae, served by demons balancing platters of burnt psyches & disintegrating morality. #EternalThirstQuenche
