Sensational Wines

These are ideal gifts of course! Exclusive high quality wines make a great present. Many of these wines are exclusive to us in the UK

We have a lot of exceptional wines as we cherry pick the very best wines we discover, and the whole ethos of our business is about quality first.

We have far too many to list on one page though so please read through the various countries in the menu on the left of this page to find wines to suit your tastes. And please be open minded to new countries and regions, and new grape varieties as well, as there is a great deal to discover.

We now specialise in wines from Argentina and South Africa as they are producing truly world class wines, at very reasonable prices compared to old world equivalents. Cheap factory produced wines from both these countries have damaged their respective reputations in the UK, but taste their best hand made wines and you'll be amazed at the quality....and quickly converted.

We've got some very good wines from Italy too, from some of the country's top producers like Zenato, La Scolca, Santa Margherita and St Michael Eppan. We also have a small selection of excellent boutique wines from various regions in Spain.

We've put together an initial selection for you below, but there are many more on our site. So please read through the site at your leisure to discover some of the best wines available anywhere in the UK.

  1. Santa Margherita Lugana DOP

     

    Santa Margherita Lugana is a brand new wine and it is superb!

    Pale gold in colour with good body and mouthfeel. Big fruit flavours, yet elegant and superbly balanced with a really long finish.

    I highly recommend this wine, it really is as good as it looks!

    Beautiful to drink on it's own or will pair with almost any food (particularly seafood cooked in butter).

    Sulphite level: Medium Low

  2. 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.

  3. The Fledge & Co Red Blend

    Platter 4.5 Stars

    Hand harvested grapes, traditionally fermented in lagars then aged in oak for 30 months.

    This is a beauty. Big and powerful with red and black fruit flavours, wonderfully smooth with well integrated oak and natural acidity. Delicious on it's own or would pair well with red meats or casseroles.

    Highly recommended!

  4. The Fledge & Co Stellenbosch Cabernet

    This is the maiden release of this new artisan wine which Leon just launched in Johannesburg at the end of August. He produced just 1880 bottles.

    Leon says it is still tight so will benefit from decanting. 

    Delicious! Deep ruby opaque. Black fruit initially with some lighter red fruit toward the finish and integrated but noticeable oak. Good weight on the palate and super smooth. I decanted it to give it some air but I reckon it'd be a great wine to savour throughout an evening from freshly opened to fully aerated. Ideal in front of a log fire!

    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.

  5. Santa Margherita Chiaretto DOC Stilrose

    James Suckling 90 Points

    Santa Margherita Chiaretto Stilrose is a superb rose for the discerning wine drinker. Pale salmon pink in colour, full and round in the mouth with complex concentrated flavours. Gentle acidity cleanses the palate on the long finish. This wine is the Italian equivalent to good Cotes de Provence, although this is comparatively low in sulphites too (which is very difficult to find in France). This is the Italian "Whispering Angel".

  6. Grangehurst Pinotage

    Pinotage 89% & Cabernet Sauvignon 11% with 21 months in oak.

    This is regarded consistently as one of the finest Pinotages available and has something of a cult following. Jeremy is very proud of this wine and rightly so!

    We have just received fresh stock of the 2009

  7. Rainbows End Cabernet Franc

    NWC National Champion - Double Gold, Cab Franc Challenge 2019 - Gold, Parker 90+

     

    No doubt there will be plenty more awards to follow as this wine is superb and is listed at some of South Africa's finest restaurants such as La Petit Colombe, Jardine, Shortmarket Club. 

     

    This Rainbows End Cabernet Franc is fantastic. Anton makes some of the best red wines in Stellenbosch and it is his Cabernet Franc that he is most proud of, believing his vineyards have the ideal microclimate for this variety. Anton also produces other excellent award winning red wines including blends, straight Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, plus a superb Merlot.

    Very pure, medium bodied with red fruit flavours, very smooth and beautifully balanced. Subtle oak ageing for 12 months, then bottled unfiltered to retain all the flavour and natural goodness. Great wine.

  8. Joubert Tradauw Redfin Pinot Noir

    Joubert Tradauw Redfin Pinot Noir is a top South African Pinot Noir made in a very French style! Ruby in colour. Savoury in style, very "Burgundian" old world. I've never before found a South African Pinot Noir made in such a convincing old world style. We've just received the 2016.

    Sustainable farming: Yes

  9. Boplaas Gamka Branca

    4 1/2 stars Platter Wine Guide

     Tim Atkins – 91 points

    Given the huge success with their flagship Gamka red, Margaux opted to produce a classic white Cape Blend too.

    It's a blend of Chardonnay, Viognier, Grenache blanc, Verdelho & Chenin Blanc from different regions - Elgin, Stellenbosch, Swartland and Klein Karro, so pretty much the entire Western Cape.

    It was both barrel fermented and barrel matured on the lees for nine months. Bottled unfined and unflitered to retain the goodness.

    Pale gold in colour with wonderful clarity. Full in the mouth with a melange of fruit flavours, delicate balanced acidity and a very long bone dry finish. This is a great wine!

    Only 1400 bottles produced!

    The grapes were sourced from assorted old vineyards (35 years plus) in Malmesbury, Perdeberg, Stellenbosch and Darling, all dry farmed unirrigated. Barrel fermented and matured for 12 months with 20% new oak.

    Santa Margherita 52 Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. is the top Prosecco from this excellent winery, from the premier region of Valdobbiadene. Whilst called " Extra Dry" it is fruity and almost sweet on the palate with a bone dry finish. It is delicious!
