    This Cabernet is from Pirque, one of the coldest regions in the Alto Maipo.

    Hand harvested grapes, low intervention winemaking and aged 12 months in French oak.This is made in a more elegant cool climate (European) style rather than big blockbusting Chile. It's very good, super smooth, and delicious.

  6. Undurraga TH Terroir Hunter Carmenere Peumo

    The "Terroir Hunter" range is from small plots of special vineyards matched to specific varietals to show off Chile's potential. This Carmenere is from Peumo, Chile's premium area for Carmenere due to it's high temperatures combined with coastal influence which increases natural acidity.

    The wine is excellent. Typical Chilean nose with big red fruit flavours initially. The palate is silky smooth with balanced acidity and oak. It's a classical wine, very enjoyable.

  7. Joubert Tradauw R62 Alternative Blend

    A new wine from Meyer. Although he started producing this a couple of years ago as an entry level introduction to his superb wines, this is the first time we've been able to get any as it is extremely popular.

    It's a natural wine fermented with it's own yeasts, unfined and unfiltered leaving the natural antioxidants in there. Sealed with a wax top. The free SO2 has remained free so while it's a healthy wine we don't recommend it for anybody with a sulphite allergy. Opt for the Grangehurst Daylea instead  

    Deep ruby. Mouth filling and round with initial red fruits turning to black fruits on the dry finish. Enjoy it with a roast or BBQ.

  9. Calcu Carmenere Reserva Especial

    Descorchados 90 Points

    A lovely wine from an artisan family winery producing wines in a natural style. The winery was built on a gravity feed system and uses pneumatic presses to extract only the best juice. They practice sustainable farming and winemaking. 

    Very deep opaque ruby, red fruit on the nose and big legs sticking to the side of the glass.

    Soft and silky on the palate with red and black fruit flavours, and good palate cleansing acidity on the long finish.

    These sauvignon grapes were fermented with Sake yeast - Vina Marty is the only winemaker outside Japan permitted to use it.

    The wine is clear gold in colour with legs and a complex nose. Big concentrated flavours with a very long finish.

  15. Little Quino Sauvignon Blanc William Fevre

    Descorchados 93 Points

    This is a great artisan wine produced in the Malleco Valley which is just about as far south as wine country goes in Chile.

    Pale gold in colour with a lychee nose. Reminded me very much of good Awatere Valley Sauvignon. It has big concentrated fruit flavours with gentle natural acidity (rare in sauvignon blanc) and a very long dry finish.

    A great summer wine, also will pair well with food.

  17. The Fledge & Co Elgin Chardonnay O Velhapi

    Special Offer - reduced from £22.99 to £15.95

    Leon did us a deal as there was a mix up and he accidentally put this on our last order. Once you go above £20 for whites they sell much more slowly so in the interest of promoting this wine Leon has discounted it to us and we are discounting it further to make it affordable for all our regulars to treat themselves this Christmas!

    This is the maiden release for this amazing new wine! A cool climate Chardonnay from a tiny vineyard in Elgin.

    Leon produced just 1,320 bottles so we are extremely fortunate to have got a sizeable chunk of it!

    Barrel fermented and barrel matured, made in a very Burgundian style for South Africa. This will rival fine Burgundy on quality and blow it away on rarity and price!

    Surprisingly light in colour for a barrel fermented Chardonnay. Leon is quite right, this will benefit from some bottle ageing. It is very enjoyable now - I decanted it  to give it some air - but it will keep improving if you can lay it down for a few months (or even years). 

    It is full flavoured with some body and good mouthfeel. Very fresh and clean yet complex with a long finish.

    All the Fledge wines are low sulphite, but we also wanted to mention that all the free SO2 readings were at bottling which will have reduced significantly since, so they will in fact be even lower than stated now.

  18. Cave de Cairanne Le Chene Givre Rose Cotes du Rhone Villages

    This rose is fantastic. Pale salmon in colour. Delicious red fruit flavours with a very long dry finish. Low sulphite as well. We don't have the official figures yet but Jane was able to drink it without triggering her sulphite allergy.

    It looks great too (this image doesn't do it justice). Amazing value at this price.

  24. Rainbows End Merlot

    National Wine Championships - Champion, Double Gold

    Platter 4.5 Stars

    New, more 2017 just in!!! We have been waiting for this as it is one of our personal favourites. Always winning awards every year, this is one of the finest Merlots produced in South Africa.

    Rainbows End Merlot is regarded by Neil Pendock of the Platter Guide as one of the best in South Africa, and I have to agree. The 2014 was exceptional as was the 2015 and 2016. We have just received stock of the 2017. Rainbows End is one of my favourite wineries and this Merlot is one of my favourite wines. This is well worth trying to see for yourself just how good top quality South African Merlot can be.

    This artisan Tampesta Golan is again Prieto Picudo, this time aged in oak for 26 months. It is delicious and natural. Although aged for 26 months in oak it isn't overpowering as some Reservas can be, it is far more balanced and elegant.

    The wine is made by expert Galician winemaker Luis Buitrón, vice-president of the Spanish Federation of Winemakers and president of the Association of Oenologists of Galicia. Highly recommended.

    Tim Atkin 93 Points

    This Joubert Tradauw Chardonnay is a beauty. Joubert Tradauw is a superb tiny family winery in the Little Karoo, producing some excellent handcrafted wines in a natural style. Meyer Joubert farms organically (although not certified) and uses minimal additives or manipulation in the cellar. This Chardonnay is superb, as are his red wines.

    Barrel fermented and left on the lees for 12 months to add body, weight and complexity. Initial citrus flavours with some vanilla, the oak is tempered and the whole wine has great balance of fruit, oak and natural acidity.

    We are on the 2016 which Tim Atkin recommends drinking now through to 2023.

  34. Herederos 1808 Viura D.O.C. Rioja

    The Martinez family began producing wines in the beautiful town of Laguardia back in the 16th century. Today they are still there making these handcrafted wines in tiny quantities. Their total production is just 40,000 bottles per year. They practice sustainable methods, farm biodynamically and always ferment the grapes with their own natural yeasts. They produce some delicious outstanding wines.

    The grapes were all hand picked from forty year old vines. Very pale gold in colour. Hold your glass up to the light and you will see this wine has wonderful clarity. On the nose there's an array of citrus fruits and some delicate perfume. On the palate it has good weight with delicate elegant flavours. Fresh and complex, it very quickly grows on you! We loved it.
