White  

Wonder Horse Old Vine Palomino, South Africa
This wine was originally used for blending with other varietals until the winemaker decided it was time for it to stand on its own two feet. Light but pretty aromas of jasmine, almonds and fennel. Refreshingly light in body, flavours of herbs and lemon grass and an almond nuttiness through to the clean crisp finish. A simple fish dish or fish cake will pair beautifully, or try with asparagus & lemon risotto.

Vigneti Radica Pecorino, Italy
Lovely ripe and fresh style of wine to be enjoyed young. Citrus and exotic fruits with aromas of blossom. Crisp and zesty lemon with a textural mouthfeel that carries from the start to the long finish. Great with creamy carbonara topped with plenty of grated parmesan. Or try with a salty cheese like halloumi, delicious!

Winterhoek Sauvignon Blanc, South Africa
DA slightly heavier style of Sauvignon Blanc that has good concentration of fruit. It begins with stone fruit, green melon and subtle vanilla oak on the nose. To taste, it's driven by mineral and citrus freshness with a juicy, creamy palate full of zesty fruit and a hint of nuts. Pairs well with most shellfish or try with baked haddock or a feta and garlic pasta.

Peacock Wild Ferment Chenin Blanc, South Africa
DWhite stone fruits with lime and green apple on the nose. Ripe, slightly honeyed apple flavours with vibrant lime freshness to balance its slightly fuller-bodied style. The use of old oak barrels helps to give a smoother textural mouthfeel but doesn't impart any flavours on the wine. Pairs perfectly with white meats but you could also experiment with chicken risotto or mildly spiced Thai cuisine.

Lyrarakis Vidiano, Crete
Aromas of apricot and citrus with blooming herbs, which reveal the rich varietal character of the rare Vidiano grape. Velvety mouthfeel, full of texture with strong presence of ripe fruit and minerality to balance through to the finish. A wine that loves seafood or white meats in creamy sauces.

Weingut Zahel Orange T, Austria
This is not an Orange wine, contrary to what the name may suggest! Amazing balance between fruit concentration and freshness. Intense spicy peach, oranges, and honeysuckle aromas. The flavours are concentrated, ripe and fresh. Lovely stone fruit flavours throughout and a juicy grapefruit to finish. Most Asian inspired dishes with a little spice will pair well with this as will a roasted sweet potato tray bake.

Red

Sepp Moser Classic Style Zweigelt, Austria
If you're a fan of Beaujolais, then you will enjoy this organic red. Bright raspberry, plum, herb and white pepper on the nose. There’s a medley of juicy red berry fruit flavours, compote fruit and sweet spice, the mouthfeel is soft and the finish is herbal. Juicy but not heavy, not too serious and can be enjoyed with or without food and even slightly chilled. If you're drinking with food then we recommend pork chops or a tomato based pasta dish.

Vigneti Radica Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Italy
A classic Italian grape variety that rarely disappoints. Stick your nose in the glass and you'll find red berry fruit, sweet spice and a hint of cocoa. On the palate there are appealing flavours of raspberry and blackberry with a spicy edge. Long red berry crunch finish. Drinking beautifully now, this is an uncomplicated wine requires that requires uncomplicated food such as bangers & mash or a tomato based pasta dish.

Feudo Maccari Nere Nero d'Avola, Sicily
An excellent quality example of Nero d'Avola, a grape gaining popularity quickly. Dark cherry, plum, damson and smoky aromas. Ripe black fruits wrap the palate with dried fruit and mocha, finishing with a liquorice spice. A great choice with your Sunday roast or with a selection of medium to hard cheeses.

Bodegas Alceno Sierra Enmedio Monastrell, Spain
Alceño is a family owned winery that was the first in the region of Jumilla way back in 1870, so it's safe to say that they know a thing or two when it comes to making wine! This wine is produced from the Monastrell grape, which is for you if you like big, full flavoured but balanced reds. Sniff and you find blackberries, to taste there is lots of spicy bright black fruit flavour with a lovely freshness throughout.

Chateau Pineraie Cahors Malbec, France
The original Malbec! The popularity of Argentinian Malbec owes much to its French relatives. This is characterful and complex example from an estate that was recently elevated to Chateau status, which shows in the quality of this wine. Intense berry fruit aromas, flavours of plum, blackberry and lots of spicy oak with a small drop of 15% Merlot adding elegance and finesse. Match with red meats or pork in a wine, cream or peppercorn sauce. Mature hard cheeses work nicely too.

Gigondas La Haute Marone, France
This really is Gigondas in all its glory! It's a deep and concentrated wine that slowly reveals its secrets - delicious intense black cherry fruit, a wisp of smoke and hints of toasted cocoa beans, clove and nutmeg. Uncork with game or hard cheeses to enjoy at its best.
