  • Anarkos Rosso di Puglia

    Anarkos Rosso di Puglia

    The label is attention-seeking, as is the bright red plastic cork (not my favourite closure, I must admit, but the wine insisted I buy it! The wine has attitude and is a provocative one, railing against the plight of the region (see their website). The region reminds me of the Languedoc in France – loads of rubbish wines but increasing numbers of fanatics making really top wines as they should be made. This was one of my favourite winery visits af the last few years. The wine is made from a blend of the local varieties Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia Nera and should be consumed in conspiratorial bars in the south of Italy with huge helpings of pasta.

    Previous vintages recommended; Recommended in The Daily Telegraph: “another one of Mark Hughes’ brilliant finds. Absolutely delicious blend of Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia. Lush and plush like velvet, also juicy, scented, intense, rich brimming with the smell of violets, deep purple plums and bitter cherries. Such a joy!
    Recommended by Oz Clarke as one of his 250 best wines of 2012: “an excellent example of how southern Italian reds are starting to express their own fabulous originality. It’s bulging with youth and it’s soft, yet tempered by a nice edgy bitterness.”

  • Du Plevaux Pinotage South Africa

    New vintage of  “a hidden gem” ( Platter’s 2016) just back in stock. A masculine Pinotage with a rich dark plum colour, complemented by a structured palate of coffee, chocolate & black berries which support the long soft finish. A minimal five months in barrels make it fruit-driven rather than too oaky.

  • 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.

  • Fellone Primitivo di Puglia

    Fellone Primitivo di Puglia

    Maybe one for sipping into the early hours after all your virtual guests have switched-off……

    If you thought Anarkos was good, then here’s his big, big brother! The knockout favourite wine at last year’s Christmas tastings in Gerrards Cross and Presteigne.
    Simply put, this red wine is delicious and if ever you doubted you would spend over £20 a bottle on a red wine from southern Italy, then doubt no more.

    Drink now to end 2022.
