  • 2017 Selected Harvest Red, Adega de PegoesRed Wine

    2017 Selected Harvest Red, Adega de Pegoes

    £1495

    A richly flavoured wine with aromas of smooth, ripe red and black fruits complemented by chocolatey flavours. Structured with a velvety texture, this wine has great concentration and complexity.

    The Pegões vineyard is located between two Nature Reserves: the Tagus estuary to the Northwest and the Sado on the Southwest. To the east are the Arrabida hills and to the west the Alentejo province’s clays. The unique soil here is named “Pliocenico de Pegões”. It is a sandy soil formed over millions of years by sand transported by the rivers Tagus and Sado. It is this Mediterranean climate and soil combination that creates this unique Pegões terroir.

  • 2014 Laissez Faire Riesling, Larry Cherubino Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2014 Laissez Faire Riesling, Larry Cherubino

    £1900

    The Laissez-Faire Riesling from Larry Cherubino is a truly delicious example of Riesling wine. This is a completely dry white wine with spectacular intensity, texture and density, an elegant bouquet of orange blossom, lime leaf and talc. Fine mineral nuances contribute to a silky, textured wine with good length and lively acid finish.  This white wine will have you reaching for another glass quicker than a wink.  Been cellared for a few years which only adds to the complexity of the wine in your glass.    Included in Matthew Jukes 100 Best Australian Wines 2014/2015.

    Laissez-Faire means “let it be” and this reflects the hands-off approach that winemaker Larry Cherubino employs.  He has learnt from organics, bio-dynamics and natural wine practices, but is not dictated by one school of thought. Larrys says ‘ We don’t subscribe to dogma. You could call them natural wines, but we like to think of them as post-natural wines.  We believe in healthy and sustainable vineyard practices and winemaking transparency with as little as possible between the vine and finished wine

    In the Laissez-Faire wines, there’s no added tannin, or acid, or animal fining products. There is zero sulfur used throughout the winemaking and only a minimal amount at bottling. They are using alternate varieties and blends to make naturally balanced wines.   From vine to bottle, the wine takes its course, hands-free.  The wines are also vegan friendly.

    2017 Laissez Faire Riesling, Larry Cherubino

    £1900

    The 2017 Laissez-Faire Riesling from Larry Cherubino is a truly delicious example of Riesling wine. This is a completely dry white wine with spectacular intensity and a bouquet reminiscent of red apple and white peach with minerally notes in the background.  White stone fruit flavours are persistent on the pallet, there is a subtle texture with tight knot acidity lingering in the background which provides length and persistence.

  • 2019 Rocim ‘Fresh from Amphora Red Nat’Cool’, Herdade do RocimRed Wine

    2019 Rocim ‘Fresh from Amphora Red Nat’Cool’, Herdade do Rocim

    £2195

    Natural wine fresh from the Amphora!   Light ruby in colour, perfumed notes of fresh red fruits is complemented by earthy and savoury notes through to a light and harmonious palate.

    Naturally vinified without any additions or must corrections. The fruit was carefully selected, vinifying only the highest quality berries. The grapes were fermented with natural indigenous yeasts in traditional clay amphora pots known as ‘Tahla’. The process took place without any intervention, including temperature control. Following fermentation the wine was aged for six months with skin contact which imparted complex aromatics to the wine. This may create a natural deposit in the bottle.

    Herdade do Rocim is associated with the Sustainable Program of the Alentejo Viticulture. This wine is made from organically grown grapes; 70% of the vineyard is certified and the remaining 30% is in conversion. The estate is situated on the Vidigueira fault, a 30-mile long east-west facing escarpment that rises to 420 metres. The fault significantly influences the climate, trapping the cool, humid Atlantic winds, so despite its southern location, it is one of the most temperate sub-regions in the Alentejo. These cooling and humid influences descend at night, creating diurnal temperature differences which extend the ripening period; with the warm days concentrating the flavours in the grapes, while balancing natural acidity is retained during the cool nights. The soils are of granitic and schistous origin. The grapes for this wine come from very old vineyards, made up of ancient, native varieties.

  • 2015 Laissez Faire Pinot Noir, Larry Cherubino Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2015 Laissez Faire Pinot Noir, Larry Cherubino

    £2250

    Earthy beetroot, red cherry and red/flowery fruit bouquet are supported by spicy oak aromas. The palate follows suit with beetroot, cherry and flowery/red fruit, fine tannins and a soft texture

  • 2019 Laissez Faire Syrah, Larry Cherubino Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2019 Laissez Faire Syrah, Larry Cherubino

    £2250

    Laissez-Faire means “let it be” and this reflects the hands-off approach that winemaker Larry Cherubino uses when making this striking Syrah.  A bouquet of black cherries is enveloped in subtle mineral nuances and supporting oak spice. Red flowery fruit flavours dominate, with subtle slate-like minerality following through onto the elegant palate, all framed by fine tannins through to a long finish.

    While inspiration has been taken from organics, biodynamics and natural winemaking practices, the Laissez Faire range could be called ‘natural wines’; Larry Cherubino likes to think of them as “post-natural” wines. Believing in healthy and sustainable vineyard practices, Larry grows all his own grapes and can account for their provenance and natural status. While copper is allowed in organic viticulture, minimal copper treatments are used here. The grapes for this wine are grown in the subregions of Frankland River and Porongurup, in the Great Southern, which are considered to be two of the most distinctive viticulture areas in Australia.

  • 2017 Semillon, Geyer Wine CoWhite Wine

    2017 Semillon, Geyer Wine Co

    £2500

    Old vine Semillon – what an absolute joy and example of the amazing heritage of Australia. Whilst much of the Barossa is ripping out old vines to replace with money-making, high yielding Shiraz, Dave Geyer is working with some of the great farmers of the area, devoted to preserving the old vines and varieties of the area. As Dave says, “once a century-old vine is gone, several generations must wait to see what it could produce again. This instant gratification is one of the downfalls of the industry. We work closely together to preserve this part of our history to ensure these vines stand the test of time and to produce some epic wines! “

    Punchy fruit-driven nose, with pink grapefruit, lemon balm and moringa flowers. Textured, nutty palate with flavours of dried mango, tangerine, lemon sherberts and a firm, grippy finish. The end of the bottle might be a little cloudier, but don’t worry, it’s just due to the choice of producing wine without filtration or fining.

    The Geyer Semillon is a blend of fruit from three different vineyards, each vinified in a way to best represent the site. Component 1 and 2 are sourced from two 90-100-year-old sites in the Barossa Valley, one which goes straight to stainless steel to best retain its vivid, fruit aromas, whilst the other, with more reductive, smokey aromas goes to old oak. The third site is a younger vineyard in the Eden Valley – and this portion spends two weeks on skins, with 50% whole bunches. All components were blended upon completion of fermentation and aged in a 1950’s fortified wine foudre for six months. This old wood infused with sherry and flor characters really twisted the Semillon in an amazing Jura-esque way – crack a bottle and see! Bottled without any addition of sulphur or fining/filtration.

  • 2014  ‘Cariñena’ Huaso de Sauzal, Bodegas El Viejo Almacén de SauzalRed Wine

    2014 ‘Cariñena’ Huaso de Sauzal, Bodegas El Viejo Almacén de Sauzal

    £2750

    Renan Cancino is one of Chile’s most sought-after viticulturists, and while he has made his name for tending vines, his wine production under the Huaso de Sauza brand is also turning heads. Cancino is a natural winemaker whose philosophy is making wines how they were always made historically in Chile – naked. Everything is done the traditional way here: vines are worked by hand, the vineyards are worked by draft horse, and there has never been any use of irrigation or chemicals.

    Cariñena is made from Carignan grafted onto free-standing País rootstock on granitic soils in the town of Sauzal.  Cariñena is a rustic wine with expressive aromas of violet, rose petal, oak, smoke and mushroom.  The palate is brimming with flavours of cherry, strawberry, raspberry, liquorice and anise.   The finish is mouthwatering, like a mountain breeze!

    “I have never seen such an artisanal and true to tradition way of making wines. The nose is a clean, focused and pure expression of the grape, with the violets and earthy, slightly rustic aromas. No sulfur is ever used at the winery, yet the wines are so clean and pure that it’s hard to believe. The palate is medium-bodied with some earthy, slightly grainy tannins and with great acidity. This is more serious, closed than the Garnacha, but at a similar, very high-quality level. Simply unbelievable. 5,000 bottles produced.”  93 Luis Gutierrez – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

  • 2014  ‘Chilena’ País Huaso de Sauzal, Bodegas El Viejo Almacén de SauzalRed Wine

    2014 ‘Chilena’ País Huaso de Sauzal, Bodegas El Viejo Almacén de Sauzal

    £2750

    This is called ‘Chilena’ because it is made from the most Chilean of all the grape varieties, Pais. The grape was brought to Chile (& Peru) by Spanish missionaries 500 years ago but was totally wiped out in Europe by phylloxera. This is an incredibly vibrant aromatic wine, almost incandescent garnet colour and juicy, fresh fruit that tastes like you’re biting into bright berries straight off the bush along with some subtle smoke and spice.

    Pais is always a playful variety, but this is a more serious interpretation of Pais made as a fabulous natural wine handmade by viticulturist Renan Cancino.

  • 2015 Dirty Little Secret Chenin Blanc, Ken ForresterWhite Wine

    2015 Dirty Little Secret Chenin Blanc, Ken Forrester

    £6950

    ‘Mr. Chenin’ is how Ken Forrester is affectionately known, and rightly so, as he was one of the first to cherish and respect old-vine Chenin Blanc.  ‘Dirty Little Secret‘ is Ken’s tribute to the age and concentration of the vines, planted in a dry irrigated vineyard in the Piekenierskloof in 1965 as well as to minimal interference winemaking, showcasing the terroir and more specifically the vintage of the wine. This wine is an extremely refined and elegant example of 100% Chenin Blanc that will continue to age beautifully for up to 10 years or more.

    Pure, floral, minerally and textural on the palate; this is the essence of laissez-faire winemaking. A very special bottle, beautifully packaged – a must own for Ken Forrester fans.  Production is very limited at only 2000 bottles.
