  • Excelsior Sauvignon Blanc South Africa

    Great quaffing wine, but rather a superior quaffing wine and also a good food wine. From a great Estate in Robertson! Green appley characters but not sharp. Refreshing and fruity, finishes with that touch of minerality which elevates it from the masses. Lovely winter wine, summer wine, spring wine, autumn wine….

  • Carneiro Estate “Luz” Vinho Verde

    A lovely new wine just arrived in. Christiana only makes two wines – there’s specialisation for you. Both are Vinho Verde and this is the classic one. Made from a blend of Azal and Loureiro grapes ( who ever heard of those?) this is light and refreshing. Fruity with a hint of bitterness. A still wine but with a zing of natural spritz which characterizes a good Vinho Verde. This spritz does dissipate after a while, though. Great summer wine.

  • Trisole Grillo di Sicilia

    I am really enjoying the fresh, tropical fruity, citrus flavours of this Sicilian white varietal. Grapefruit was my first note, but soft not sharp, then it ends with a nice, almost bitter finish. A lovely new addition to our range and only 12.5% ABV

  • Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

    Too soon for any medals yet, but only a matter of time!

    Fabien & Christophe’s super white was absolutely stunning when we first tasted their 2006 and now the 2022 has arrived it is also a stunner, possibly even better! year after year stunning consistency. 90% crisp, zingy gooseberry Sauvignon Blanc with a ‘lichette’ of Semillon to round it off. Aging on the lees for around three months adds an extra dimension. I really hope you will enjoy this.

  • Carneiro Estate “Tordo” Alvarinho

    The second of our new wines just arrived in from Christiana at Carneiro Estate. This is 100% Alvarinho but still classified as Vinho Verde. It is fuller and rounder than the classic blend VV, but that’s Alvarinho for you! Bags of easy fruit and a great summery wine to enjoy on its own or with light foods.

  • De Meye Unwooded Chardonnay Stellenbosch South Africa

    Return of an old friend! Unoaked, fresh, crisp minerally Chardonnay for those who don’t like Chardonnay!

    There’s Chardonnay and there’s Chardonnay. Here’s a lovely example of Stellenbosch’s versatility showing how Chardonnay can be crisp, minerally, dry and nothing like the tired, old, over-oaked examples we see too much of in the supermarkets. Might even say “Chablis” if you didn’t know.

  • Verus Riesling, Slovenia

    Verus Riesling, Slovenia

    Verus wines need little commentary. They are all superb, demonstrating what Jancis Robinson called “a purity of fruit” when we shipped their first ever vintage in 2008. This Riesling is delciously characteristic of the slightly petrolly flavours you get with classic Rieslings. Zingy and refreshing.
