New Arrivals


Berton Vineyards Barossa Valley Reserve Shiraz 2013 at £11.99 bottle Deeply coloured garnet red, with powerful aromas of ripe black cherries, blackberries, and cinnamon spice plus a whiff of eucalyptus . The stunning palate is a wonderful layered, complex, melange of ripe bramble & plum with vanilla oak coming into play as well. The finish is very long. Perfect partner for game or roast beef.                                                                                         

Handcock & Handcock Cabernet Sauvignon Touriga 2014 Usually £13.99 bottle Introductory Price £10.99 bottle Produced from old mature vines this has aromas of blackcurrant and crushed leaves of Cabernet Sauvignon mixed with perfume of violets from savoury Touriga. McLaren Vale is a long way from Portugal, home to the Touriga grape, however the climate agrees with it and blending with Cabernet results in a brooding combination of blackcurrant with notes of violets and a suggestion of supple tannins on the long finish.  Deliciously different!                                                    


Luis Felipe Edwards Rio Rica Central Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 at £6.49 bottle  Medium-bodied Cabernet with aromas of cassis & cherries that carry through onto the attractive palate, rounded with supple tannins and a surprising long finish.

Luis Felipe Edwards Rio Rica Central Valley  Sauvignon Blanc 2015 at £6.49 bottle Refreshingly crisp & dry with an intense nose of tropical fruit & herbal notes the palate is deliciously complex with the same tropical fruit & also citrus flavours, a winner at this price.                              

Luis Felipe Edwards Rio Rica Central Valley Chardonnay 2013 at £6.49 bottle  This stylish Chardonnay is fresh as daisy with melon & tropical fruit aromas & flavours.

The Crossings Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015 at £10.99 bottle Ok it’s another Marlborough Sauvignon but I make no apologies for stocking another one! The Awatere Valley makes some of the best Sauvignon’s in the world and this is no exception it’s elegance comes across immediately. Bright with a fresh softly green hue. On the nose there are soft gooseberry notes with wonderfully vibrant intensity, leading into a ripe and nicely textured mid-palate. Lime zest, stone fruits and passion-fruit flavours play against the signature flinty minerality of the Awatere Valley, with an elegant,  persistent finish.                                                                


Clos de Torribas Tempranillo Crianza Penendes 2012 at £9.99 bottle A smoky, oaky, dry Tempranillo that spends 10 months in oak barrels & 6 months in the bottle before release. This imparts depth & flavour to this delicious wine,  lovely mature black fruit flavours mingle with background vanilla oak.                                                                             

Linaja Garsea Ribera del Duero 2014 at £10.99 bottle Expressive wine produced from  Tempranillo 80%, Tinta del Pais 20% that benefits from 3 months in American & French oak. Deeply coloured with aromas of strawberry and wild berries. Clean, fresh and fruity with a smooth, velvety texture, a very drinkable wine.                                                               

Senorio de Ondarre Tempranillo Blanco Rioja  2014 at £7.99 bottle  A pale yellow wine with greenish highlights. Great aromatic complexity on the nose with hints of white flowers and spicy notes, this carries through onto a full bodied creamy palate with green apple, citrus and tropical fruits and a crisp finish. Classy!
