France 

Chateau Durfort~Viviens  2eme Grand Cru Classe Margaux 2013 at 75.00 bottle  

Fine depth of colour and really lovely Margaux fruit with almost velvety depth, lots of class in 2013, although 2013 was supposed to be a poor vintage in Margaux it was good!  The vineyard is in the process of going bio-dynamic and there is always improvement when this happens. This wine consistently scores mid 90s with all wine writers and will always delight! Drinking now 2017 - 2028 

Louis Jadot Volnay Santenots 2007 at 55.00 bottle 

From a chalky, stoney, red soil vineyard that produces rounded wines with good structure. It has a silky character with elegant, softened tannins, great balance, savoury notes and a hint of truffle  plus a lingering fruity finish. A real crowd pleaser!  

New Zealand

Escarpment The Edge Pinot Noir Martinborough North Island 2017 at 13.99 bottle 

This is a full-bodied Pinot Noir with great backbone, silky fruitiness and a lingering finish.                      Complexity, texture and structure are at the heart of winemaker Larry McKenna's philosophy. Drinking well now, but will develop for up to two years or so. 

South Africa 

Glenelly Glass Collection Cabernet Franc 2015  at 11.99 bottle 

Aromas of violets, blueberry, damson, cherry and graphite. Palate has lovely definition, weight and great dark fruit dominated by aromas of dark cherries, blueberries and graphite. There is freshness and length. Sophisticated stuff  from a Bordeaux styled estate in Stellenbosch. It has silky tannins and a long, smooth finish. Matured in French oak barrels for 12 months.                                              

Glenelly Glass Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015  at 11.99 bottle 

A developed very complex nose with aromas of Cassis, blackcurrant, cherry, a touch of spices and chocolate. The wine has a good tannin structure, perfect balance and length, with layers of pleasing flavours which have followed through from the nose to the palate. 

Glenelly Glass Collection Merlot 2016 at 11.99 bottle 

This Merlot is a deep richly  coloured wine. It displays intense dark fruit aromas and spicy plums with a whiff of spearmint on the edge. It shows tremendous concentration, richness and generous fruit on the palate with fine but well structured and balanced tannins to embrace it all.

Glenelly Glass Collection Unoaked  Chardonnay 2016 at 11.99 bottle

The Glass Collection Chardonnay has a bright lemon yellow colour with a slight green hue. The wine has complex aromas of citrus, lime zest and melon. On the palate there is a beautiful round comforting texture with wonderful length and intense fruit complexity.
