  • A Vue de Nez (no added sulphur) by Jeff Carrel Organic Red

    Firstly – organic and with no added sulphur. Secondly – it’s a lovely smooth and fruity expression of grassy Cabernet Franc with a dollop of Syrah to beef it up. Also it has a clutch of Gold Medals and 90/100 from American Wine Guru Robert Parker.

  • Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ Red

    Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ Red

    Selected from the best parts of the vineyard, this is a blend of Syrah, Carignan and Mourverdre. Each varietal is kept apart and aged in 500 litre oak barrels for 12 months. Only then do they decide upon the final blend. Once made, the finished wine is aged for yet another 12 months in those same barrels before bottling. Only 10% of the barrels are new wood, so there’s no “in your face ” oakiness here!
    Diane only releases this wine if she feels it is up to her highest standards of quality. So, no 2002 vintage ‘ it was all sold off in bulk to the ‘négociants’. The 2003 vintage was a cracker. No 2004 vintage either; that, too, was not good enough, the 2005, 2007 and 2009s brilliant…as was the 2011.
    And then along came the equally scrumptious 2103, and the super 2015 and now the fab 2016. What more can I say? Drink now to 2026 (really!)

  • Fitou by Jeff Carrel

    Gutsy and very intense soft red, yet good acidity makes this a great food wine….

  • Le Grenache dans le Peau by Jeff Carrel

    Big, soft, creamy tannins….I’ve got you under my skin….15.5% of lovely Grenache, which, by the way, is the predominant grape variety in a Chateauneuf du Pape….just saying….

  • Brunelli Ripasso “Pa’Riondo”

    This is a serious contender for the Hughes Family Turkey Dinner Red.

    Rich, complex but very silky textures make this a delight. The Ripasso technique consists in refermenting a Valpolicella on the sugars and yeast-rich grape skins of the area’s top wine, Amarone.

    This results in the wine becoming full-bodied, with a great concentration of colour and perfume.Corvina Veronese 65%, Rondinella 25%, Corvinone 10%.

  • Domaine l’Abbé Dîne Côtes du Rhône Villages 2014 Vintage

    Very, very delicious, spicy red made from 80% Grenache, 60 year-old vines. This Côtes du Rhône Villages is intensely perfumed, spicy, peppery, mouthwateringly-satisfying, and better than any Chateauneuf du Pape under £20 in my humble opinion! Good firm tannins make it a great food wine.  As Nathalie, the owner puts it; “Le millésime 2014  est dans la souplesse et le velours. Très bons.”

  • Giravolta Primitivo di Manduria

    Based on the huge popularity of “Fellone” I thought we should have a closer look at the Primitivo grape. Here’s one of four more, each with a distinct “terroir”. What’s the Italian for “terroir”, I wonder? This one  is distinctive due to the calcareous white soil of the vineyards. Aged for nine months in French oak.

  • “Zinfandel” Primitivo di Manduria from Felline

    With the huge success of Fellone, I decided that Primitivo needed a closer inspection, so here’s one of four new ones, all from Felline down in the south of Italy.This one is a slight variation, being styled “Zinfandel Californiano”. That’s what they call it over there but is a strain of Primitivo all the same. Terroir is Mandurian black soil and the 15% wine was aged for six months in French and American oak.

  • Ridgeback Estate Cabernet Franc

    Another smart red from the Estate. Try this varietal which is a minor one in Bordeaux, more common in the Loire, but great here in South Africa.
