  • 2020 Circa 77 Cabernet Sauvignon, XanaduRed Wine

    2020 Circa 77 Cabernet Sauvignon, Xanadu


    Circa 77 wines are Xanadu’s excellent value, everyday drinking wines that are named after the wineries’ inception in 1977.  Circa 77 demonstrates not just the lifestyle and natural beauty of Margaret River, but just how special the combination of our pristine maritime climate and ancient soils are in producing wines of vibrancy and personality.

    In the glass, this wine exhibits vibrant, characteristic aromas of ripe blackcurrants, blueberries, and dark plums meshed with hints of dry Mediterranean herbs and subtle spicy, toasty oak. The generous palate is packed full of juicy fruits of the forest, cassis and red currant characters. Medium to full-bodied, the fleshy fruits are supported by moreish, supple and ripe tannins. A balanced wine, with a persistent fruit finish with beautiful regional savoury inflections of bay leaf, black olive and liquorice and subtle oak influences.

  • 2017 The Galvo Garage Cabernet Blend, d’Arenberg Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2017 The Galvo Garage Cabernet Blend, d’Arenberg


    Made during an exceptionally balanced year. A lifted and perfumed nose displaying complex notes of violets, blackcurrant and ripe berries. The colour is quite rich, almost dark, suggesting a fuller-bodied flavour profile.  The palate is elegant, yet sings with ripe fruits, and is extremely juicy with deep richness and structure. This mix of pure fruit combines with fine oak tannins that lead to a lovely fragrant dark chocolate, minerally dry finish.

    ‘Garage wines’ is a term used to describe wines that are produced in the back sheds of French winemakers, who make small batch wines of the highest quality. Our galvanized, corrugated ‘garage’ was built in 1927 and still houses the traditional equipment used in the handcrafting of this wine.

  • 2016 Chateau LucasRed Wine

    2016 Chateau Lucas


    The area of Lussac is an up and coming satellite appellation of the renowned Saint Emilion region on the the Right Bank of Bordeaux. There is no doubt that one of Lussac’s most prized properties is Château Lucas, owned by the Vauthier family of Château Ausone fame. From just 18 hectares of vines, three cuvée are produced. The top wine, aptly called Château Lucas, is produced from a 12-hectare vineyard, comprising equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc. While so much of the Right Bank focuses on Merlot, the high percentage of Cabernet Franc brings a polished lift to the cuvée, vintage in and vintage out.

    In the glass it opens with aromatics of raspberry and blackcurrant interlaced with plum and vanilla notes.  The palate is round and balanced with flavours of earthy spices, tobacco and blackcurrants that lead into a sustained finish.

  • 2018 Chateau de Carles, FronsacRed Wine

    2018 Chateau de Carles, Fronsac


    Château de Carles is a deep and flamboyant Fronsac wine.  Silky on the palate and enveloped in tannins as delicate as they are melted, this wine draws the contours of a resolutely modern Fronsac. It is built around a deep, clean and generous fruit.
    With a price-pleasure ratio at the top of Bordeaux, it is ready to drink immediately but it can also stay in the cellar for a generation.

    A perfect wine for lean cuts of grilled beef and lamb chops.

  • 2019 ‘Altitude 1350’, Doña PaulaRed Wine

    2019 ‘Altitude 1350’, Doña Paula


    This complex blend of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Casavecchia is made grapes picked at an altitude of 1,350 metres above sea level hence the name ‘Altitude 1350’.  It is one of a trio of Dona Paula wines focusing on the altitude of unique and exceptional vineyards.  The other 2 being ‘Altitude 969’ and ‘Altitude 1100’.  All three are exceptional and available from us.

    In the glass Altitude 1350 is a complex, beautifully balanced red wine with spicy and floral notes from the Cabernet Franc and vibrant red fruit notes from the Malbec. Elegant and well-structured with polished tannins which give a long, persistent finish.

    The addition of Casavecchia, an extremely rare red grape variety from Campania in Italy, is particularly unique and interesting as Casavecchia has high levels of anthocyanins which impart its wines with deep colours and strong, supple tannins.

    The grapes for Doña Paula 1350 come from 2 blocks (No10 and No7) of the Alluvia vineyard located in Gualtallary at 1,350 meters above sea level.

  • 2021 Cabernet Franc ‘TH’, UndurragaRed Wine

    2021 Cabernet Franc ‘TH’, Undurraga


    Head winemaker Rafael Urrejola has spent a great deal of time understanding the diversity of Chile’s vineyard sites; the result is the emblematic ‘Terroir Hunter’ range.

    In the glass this Cabernet Franc has an intense ruby red colour and great clarity, it expresses fresh aromas of black fruits such as blackberries, blueberries and blackcurrant mixed with floral tones such as violets. On the palate it is fresh, intense and elegant, firm tannins, with a fruity and unctuous medium palate. The finish is long and persistent.

    The Cabernet Franc grapes were sourced from a selected vineyard planted exclusively for this range in Catemito, in the Valle de Maipo. The daily temperatures during the summer are lower in this area than in the rest of the Valle de Maipo, decreasing substantially in March and April, providing the ideal conditions for the tannins to ripen completely and to ensure that the fresh aromas and flavours are preserved. Catemito is located on an alluvial terrace which was formed in the Holocene period, approximately 10,000 years ago.

  • 2020 Optima, Anthonij Rupert WyneRed Wine

    2020 Optima, Anthonij Rupert Wyne

Ripe plums, hedgerow fruit, cocoa, cedar and spice, cigar box flavours makes for an enveloping mouthful. Complex, elegant and beautifully integrated, the oak is seamlessly balanced with the fruit. Lingering and harmonious with not a single element out of place.

    OPTIMA is a carefully selected blend of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (32%), Merlot (30%) and Petit Verdot (2%) grapes.

  • 2021 Rosso Bolgheri ‘Stupore’, Campo alle CometeRed Wine

    2021 Rosso Bolgheri ‘Stupore’, Campo alle Comete


    This is an intensely aromatic Bordeaux blend with notes of fresh plum layered with sweet roasted cocoa, tobacco and characteristic Bolgheri balsamic notes. Silky and smooth on the palate with a fresh finish.

    The Campo alle Comete winery is located at the foot of the Castagneto Carducci hill in Bolgheri. The oldest vines are planted around the cellar surrounded by the Mediterranean bushland. The proximity of the sea with its constant refreshing breezes plays an important role in the vine’s growth and for the maturation of the fruit, where the fresh breezes impart natural balancing acidity to the sun-ripened fruit.

  • 2020 Three, Constantia GlenRed Wine

    2020 Three, Constantia Glen


    This delicious three-way blend was carefully crafted from grapes grown on the estate. It comprises 55% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc and 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and was matured for 17 months in 30% new, 50% second fill- and 20% third fill French oak barrels. The wine was not fined, but only lightly filtered prior to bottling to subtly mellow the rich tannin structure. This vintage shows the phenomenal structure and freshness that has become synonymous to the Constantia Glen THREE, but also has excellent concentration. This means that it can be enjoyed in its youth, yet it will certainly age and develop admirably for another 10-12 years under correct cellaring conditions.

    In the glass, the nose of this wine has great expression with forthcoming red and black fruit aromas. Following these initial ripe fruit aromas, there is a complex collection of savoury notes woven with lingering flavours of tomato leaf, blackcurrant, and cedar.  The palate shows great intensity and complexity of flavours with the dark fruit and distinct savoury notes on the nose following flawlessly onto that first sip. The fine-grain, elegant and velvety tannins really compliment the richness of the wine and promise great aging potential if stored under correct cellar conditions. This full-bodied blend has an earthy minerality and an inherent freshness that brings about a lingering, well-defined finish.

    The vineyards that the grapes come from for this wine are tucked in the steep valley on the eastern side of Table Mountain. The climate is Mediterranean with cooling breezes from the Atlantic Ocean encouraging balance and complexity in the grapes, this combined with the cool southern slopes and deep mountain soils provide the ideal setting for the making of these top quality wines.

  • 2019 Coracle, Harry HartmanRed Wine

    2019 Coracle, Harry Hartman


    Harry Hartmans’ flagship wine, Coracle is a classic Bordeaux style blend and we are delighted to be among the first to list these fabulous wines in the UK.  Made in tiny quantities these wines are going to be highly sought after very quickly!

    Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot from selected Stellenbosch vineyards.

    This is a powerhouse of a wine, the 4 grape varieties are united in an intriguing and authoritative wine that casts a net of attractive aromas to reel you in. Its hedonistic charm of plum, mulberry, cassis, and blackberry is underpinned with masculine notes of English leather, cedar, tobacco, truffle, and cured meat.   The palate is delicious and mouth-filling.

    This suave Cabernet Sauvignon-driven blend is undoubtedly intended to set sail for a long-lived journey and beckons those in search of a focussed and multi-faceted wine. Adorning this solid backbone, Merlot contributes with lively red fruit and a cool note of fennel that resurfaces as the wine develops in the glass. Trailed by hints of graphite and capsicum, Cabernet Franc takes a bow, adding even more defined fruit and finesse. Noticeable florals, rosemary, and intensity stem from Stellenbosch Petit Verdot to complete this flavour journey.

    In essence, the name refers to a small traditional boat that symbolises the joint effort of a group of friends who adore Bordeaux-style blends.

  • 2019 MOSI Harry HartmanRed Wine

    2019 MOSI Harry Hartman


    Harry Hartman wines are new to these shores and we are delighted to be among the first to list these fabulous wines in the UK.  Made in tiny quantities these wines are going to be highly sought after very quickly!

    This 2019 Classic Blend is a collaboration between Harry Hartman and Tongai Joseph Dhafana, a refugee who turned winemaker, an award-winning Sommelier, a wine judge, a philanthropist and the proud owner of the internationally recognised Mosi Wines and Spirits.

    In the glass, the wine unleashes a refreshing fragrance born from sun-baked-slate, ripe berry fruit, and a peppery perfume of lavender.   The wine is packed with dark fruit like blackberry, mulberry, and plum, with a cool, herbaceous gloss. Hints of rum and raisin positively points to full ripeness, joined by a notable yet balanced alcohol adding to the full, rounded texture of the wine. Clever use of oak adds structure while honouring the fruit, affirmed with a mellow and gentle pull of berry compote. Garigue aromas persist on the palate, edged with fresh acidity and supple tannin for a mouth-watering finish.   A coolness lingers on the palate with a gentler aftertaste of dark, sea salt chocolate.   A very serious wine that will reward over many years.  Decant for an hour before drinking.  Drink now to 2035

  • 2018 Cabernet Franc Mini Ediciones, Finca DeceroRed Wine

    2018 Cabernet Franc Mini Ediciones, Finca Decero


    Finca Decero is a world-class wine producer located in the Agrelo sub-appellation of Luján de Cuyo in the northwestern part of the province of Mendoza.  Their famed Remolinos Vineyard derives its name from the little whirlwind spiral formations of soil which form in the afternoon as the gentle wind lifts the dry soil from the paths of the vineyard into swaying ‘dust devils’.  This natural phenomenon draws the attention of our overly protective Lechuza owls in the vineyard who sometimes take flight seemingly to chase them away!

    2018 is a stellar vintage in Mendoza and will be long remembered.

    The 2018 Decero Mini Ediciones Cabernet Franc is one of their ‘rare varieties & limited edition’ wines. Of this vintage, only 7,192 bottles were made. The wine shows nuances of pepper, graphite and plum notes with fresh aromatics and taut acidity resulting in a well-structured, elegant Cabernet Franc with great potential for ageing.
