Recaredo terrers Brut Nature Corpinnat, Alt Penedès, Catalonia, Spain
58% Xarel.lo, 32% Macabeu, 10% Monastrell
Pale yellow in colour with golden tinges. The nose is pure and elegant with deep mineral notes combined with aromas of white fruit, white flowers and smoke and dry fruit. The very fresh palate has a crisp and well-defined structure which is dry and smooth at the same time. The bubbles are perfectly integrated, and the wine has a long finish with delicate notes of aniseed and white fruit, nuanced by a smoky touch.
Pairing: Shellfish, soft cheese or rice dishes
Le Roc Ambulle Negrette Petillant, Fronton, France
This is made from Negrette, which is a dark skinned black grape native to the area. Compared to the other grapes from SW France Negrette is really perfumed and silken, with very low tannins which makes it perfect for sparkling production. Le Roc Ambulle is made without any SO2 additions in the methode ancestrale style, which makes it a zero sulphur slimline goodie. It is a dark pink petillant with a nice mousse, discernibly sweet and oozes sweet cherries, raspberries and pear-drops.
Pairing: Perfect as an aperitif or with dessert
Jauma Fairygarten Shiraz, Barossa, Australia
Harvested from the early ripening crown of Ralph Woods' dry grown shiraz ridge in Clarendon. This ironstone rich outcrop combined with an early harvest choice, carbonic fermentation in the winery and a slight spritz produces a super vibrant and pretty wine backed up with lashings of minerality. Intense herbal character on top of savory red fruits like roses, raspberries and tangy sherbet, licorice, and volcanic minerality. Fine tannins provide nice structure and texture.
Pairing: This wine generally goes well with beef, lamb or mature and hard cheese
Pol Opuesto Mala Hierba, Mendoza, Aregntina
Filled with intense dark fruits, cassis, figs this is the same variety as Douce Noir often grown in Savoie and Piedmonte in northern Italy. It was prolific in Argentina, but mainly used for blending. Pol’s version treads a lovely line between fig, cherry, blueberry and cassis. Plenty of energy here."
Pairing: Try this with tomato based pasta dishes or a lamb ragu which would be excellent.
Chateau du Cedre Cahors AOC, Haut-Pays, South West France
90% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 5% Tannat
A straight and seductive wine, it expresses the richness and depth of the Malbec de Cahors from the old terraces. Young and expressive, its tannins are crunchy, it’s fresh and round. Its bouquet is marked by black fruits, spices, mint and fresh peppers, evolves and enriches gradually, giving body and length on the palate. A charming wine and excellent meal companion.
Pairing: Confit duck breast, cassoulet, lamb or cheese
Marto Wein Al Dente, Rheinhessen, Germany
Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Pinot Blanc
A light red whose easy-drinking character belies just how perfectly pitched this blend is -- the breadth of a Pinot Blanc's texture with the pristine acidity of Pinot Gris blended into Riesling, and the berried and spiced perfection of German Pinot Noir. An absolute banger. Mid-red, slightly turbid wine with plenty of upfront red fruit aromas (cherries), crunchy in the mouth with lovely acidity.
Pairing: Chicken liver, pasta
Archil Guniava Tsolikouri, Kvaliti, Georgia
Tsitska, Tsolikouri and Krakhuna
This dynamic golden white blend of three Imeretian varieties, Tsitska, Tsolikouri and Krakhuna, is hand-made in qvevri by Archil Guniava, one of the country’s best family producers. The wine has it all: a seductively incisive nose with mineral and apricot notes, citrussy freshness and a razor-sharp palate. Deep, long and rich, but not heavy, this is a cracking wine!
Pairing: It goes equally well with chicken, beef or cheese, and like all Georgian wine, is the perfect match for pickled or fermented food.
Intellego The Story of Harry, Swartland, South Africa
74% Chenin Blanc, 26% Chardonnay (38% of the wine fermented on the skins)
Harry is a fictional character and one of the locals working in the vineyards. Just like all the other locals Harry dries his washing by hanging it onto the farm fences and it lights up the Swartland with these bright colours. The wine has bright acidity with great texture on the palate makes for a good introduction to a wine that has partial skin contact.
Pairing: Seafood and chicken.
Pedro Olivares La Muscat Blanc D´Argila, Murcia, Spain
Very original Muscat wine, not highly fragrant, with nose attitude and volume in the mouth. The acidity is fair, very Mediterranean, but magnified with the rounded character of lees aging. Hints of apple, quince, fennel, flowers, stone fruit on the nose, unctuous and long on the palate with a mineral character (from the soils).
Pairing: It will perfectly match with Lobster rice and sea food.
Burja Roza, Vipava Valley, Slovenia
100% Pinot Gris
A wonderful skin contact rose, from Primož Lavrenčič of Burja Winery, based in the Vipava Valley, Slovenia. A beautiful showcase of the aromatic expressions of the Pinot Gris grape and almost red in colour with tropical & apple notes & a hint of pink petalsrich in dark cherry fruit and a rounded texture from lees-ageing in used barrels Organically farmed grapes, fermented naturally with native wild yeasts, unfiltered & no fining.
Pairing: A versatile food wine, one that would go well with salami, hard cheeses and pizza.
Bartoli Marsala Vigna La Miccia, Sicily, Italy
An innovative, contemporary expression of semi-dry marsala wine where the most fruity and delicate notes of the grape have been preserved thanks to cold vinification and avoiding any contact with oxigen during the aging period.
Pairing: pumpkin-filled pasta, soft and blue cheeses, foie gras, prawns as well as with dessert.
Little Pomona Harvest Cider
60% Browns Apple, 14% Yarlington Mill, 13% Dabinett, 13% Harry Masters Jersey
Bottle conditioned. Slight funk on the nose but underneath bright yellow fruit and flowers. The fresh, citrus vibe of Browns Apple tames any overt sense of the barrels and lifts the intense fruit richness of the late season apples. In the end it’s bright, juicy and full of ripe fruit. It’s fully reminiscent of the tastes, smells and feelings of warm orchard days and the long shadows of harvest time. Drink cold. Not frozen.
Pairing: Super versatile, everything from roast chicken and hog roast to lightly spiced curries, pizza, fish & chips
