Champagne Gremillet Sélection Brut NV  CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE 

The vineyards, situated in the southern reaches of Troyes achieve greater ripeness which leads to a richer fruit and classic baked biscuit flavours mixed with characteristic toasty yeast overtones. Only the first, lightest pressings are used, as is usual for fine Champagne. Fresh floral aromas combine with characteristic sweet brioche overtones, balanced by peach skin and baked biscuit flavours with a crisp citrus finish. This is a stunning Champagne that delivers on all fronts! Vegetarian & Sustainable

2019 Domaine du Monteillet, Condrieu ‘Les Grandes Chaillées’  RHÔNE, FRANCE

The essence of Viognier: elegant, delicately perfumed, fresh and mineral with layers of flavour and complexity. Whilst still young, this is full of primary flavours. A true taste of Viognier which after 10 years will develop wonderful honeyed secondary flavours.

2016 Horst Sauer Escherndorf am Lumpen 1655 Riesling GG  FRANKEN, GERMANY

Riesling plays second fiddle to Silvaner in Franconia, yet Horst Sauer tease richness, purity and minerality from this bright, acid driven variety. Franken Riesling is considered to be the most  masculine expression of the variety from Germany (in stark contrast to the femininity of the Mosel) yet from the grand cru (GG site) this full bodied, bone dry Riesling is impressive in its structure and concentration. This is very cool, very authoritative, very click-click Riesling with a core of lime, peach, hay and maybe a suggestion of fresh nuts around the edges.

2015 Granbazán Don Álvaro de Bazán Albariño  RIAS BAIXAS, SPAIN 

The grapes are sourced from the peak of Finca Tremoedo, the coolest part of the vineyard, just behind the winery building. Here the soil is shallow and granite-rich, producing a complex Albariño with the acidity and mineral structure of a wine capable of great ageing. Ripe citrus and orchard fruit aromas with a touch of honeysuckle. The palate is gently rounded, with lemon and stone fruit notes backed by appealing floral characters, leesy notes and a long mineral finish. Vegetarian

2019 Waterkloof Sauvignon Blanc  STELLENBOSCH, SOUTH AFRICA 

The ultimate, inimitable expression of Sauvignon Blanc from the unique terroir of Waterkloof. A steely and mineral wine with great purity, restraint and elegance. The nose is nuanced and fleeting. The palate is layered with masses of fine texture and a balanced acidity, ending with a lingering minerality. This is a hugely serious wine with real pedigree and amongst one of the finest examples of South Africa’s huge potential with this variety. Unusually for the grape variety, it is a wine capable of ageing for many years. You won’t taste another Sauvignon Blanc like it! Vegetarian, Vegan & Sustainable 

2018 Domaine des Tourelles Marquis des Beys Chardonnay  BEKAA VALLEY, LEBANON

This is an aromatic Chardonnay from one of Lebanon’s Leading producers. A nose of ripe stonefruit, vanilla and a touch of hazelnut complexity. The palate is rich with bright, slightly exotic fruit flavours and cinnamon. The wine has enough acidity to provide balance and the finish is long, nutty and elegant. This is a unique and rewarding Chardonnay. Vegetarian & Vegan

2015 Château Castelbruck, ‘Cuvée Bruyères’, Margaux  BORDEAUX, FRANCE 

Château Castelbruck is the second wine of Château Haut Breton Larigaudière, a 15 hectare Margaux estate between Soussans and Arsac bought by the current owners, the Schepper family, in the 60s. Robust and savoury with complex blackcurrant, plum and herbal characters, supple tannins and a long, rich finish. This has the generous style of the 2015 vintage and is already very appealing.

2016 Gómez Cruzado Honorable Rioja  RIOJA, SPAIN 

A richly flavoured ‘field blend’ from Gomez Cruzado’s oldest vineyards. Wild bramble and spiced plum aromas then richly flavoured black cherry fruit and expressive well-integrated oak flavours. Ripe tannins are balanced by vibrant acidity and developed dried fruit, mocha and toasty spice characters. Sustainabl

2019 Super Nanny Pinot Noir  CENTRAL OTAGO, NEW ZEALAND 

The Super Nanny Pinot Noir has a complex and seductive nose, showing ever changing layers of plums, bramble, sweet baking spice, and an ethereal floral lift. The palate is rich upon entry, flowing on to a platform of dark berry fruits, dried herbs, and spice. Fine velvety tannins lead towards a bright and persistent finish.

2018 Cadus Single Vineyard‘Finca Las Torcazas’ Malbec  LUJÁN DE CUYO, ARGENTINA

Deep dense purple in colour with a rich spicy plum, black berry nose, along with notes of violet, spice, vanilla and cedar. Powerful ripe red fruit mixed with prunes and more sweet vanilla from the oak, with liquorice and dark chocolate on the finish. The wine has a lovely rich palate weight, with balanced grainy tannins matched by refreshing acidity. This is a wine that will age for a decade or more. Vegetarian & Vegan

2015 Prà Morandina Amarone della Valpolicella  VENETO, ITALY 

A ripe, open and spicy nose with aromas of wild cherry, plums and dried herbs. Firm, ripe tannins on the palate lead to flavours of bitter cherry, spice and tarry, liquorice notes too. The finish is complex and long, further opening to reveal dried orange peel, and ripe red fruit characters backed by a hint of mocha. A fine and distinctive style of Amarone capable of further development in bottle. Vegetarian, Vegan & Sustainable

2018 Yangarra Estate Old Vine Grenache  MCLAREN VALE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Pete Fraser has achieved true varietal expression from old vines. This wine was described by James Suckling as 'A very succinct and smoothly delivered style that has a wealth of blueberries and raspberries and a crisp, forthright frame of tannin that speaks to the old vines and the superior site at work here.’ On the nose is a rush of cloves, lavender, dark cherries and raspberries. The palate is rich and young, with grainy tannins that will soften in time. As it evolves dry cocoa and earthiness develops. A serious wine, this old vine Grenache finishes gently grippy, spicy and full. Vegetarian, Vegan, Organic, Biodynamic & Sustainable
