    2019 Malvasia Nera ‘Talo’, San Marzano

    £1046 25% saving

    This is a wonderfully rich wine that has an intense and complex bouquet rose petals, blueberries and wild herbs.  A full-bodied wine with delicious flavours of Morello cherry and vanilla notes through to a smooth finish.  Puglian reds can sometimes reflect the heat of this part of Italy a little too much – this wine is strikingly different, fresh and juicy with almost no tannin.

  • Offer 2019 Primitivo di Manduria ‘Talo’, San MarzanoRed Wine

    2019 Primitivo di Manduria ‘Talo’, San Marzano

    £1121 25% saving

    A rich and opulent wine with vibrant flavours of ripe cherries and plums combined with subtle overtones of cocoa and vanilla. Velvety and textured with brambly fruits on the palate and a warm finish, this packs a punch of flavour.

    Talo is the surname of one of the winegrowers that have supplied San Marzano for many years. San Marzano recognises the contribution their producers make, with whom they work closely to achieve the best from their land. The outstanding quality of these wines could not be created without them. The vineyard is located in Salento, Puglia at approximately 100 metres above sea level. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with a good presence of rocks, making it an ideal growing location for vines.

  • 2019 ‘Mariana’ Red, Herdade do RocimRed Wine

    2019 ‘Mariana’ Red, Herdade do Rocim

    £1195

    This vibrant blend of native Portuguese grapes delivers exuberant aromas of red berries complimented by subtle spicy notes. Textured on the palate with silky tannins enveloping the fruit through to a long, delicious finish.

    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 water level in the soil is rich and superficial, nourishing the vines during the warm summers.

  • 2019 Bardolino Doc Le Nogare, BertaniRed Wine

    2019 Bardolino Doc Le Nogare, Bertani

    £1395

    The Lake Garda microclimate which the hilly area above Bardolino enjoys produces Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grapes at a naturally high level of maturation. This is why Le Nogare is such a fresh young wine, just like the breezes blowing over the lake, with a strikingly bright ruby red colour, and scents of stewed cherries and spice.  On the palate, it is full of luscious red berry fruit flavours and zippy acidity.

    What helps to maintain this particular colour and taste is the decision not to use wood for the maceration process: instead, the winemakers use cement vats faced with glass tiles.

  • 2020 Aconcagua Pinot Noir, Montes AlphaRed Wine

    2020 Aconcagua Pinot Noir, Montes Alpha

    £1475

    A soft, silky Chilean Pinot Noir with aromas of ripe cherries and raspberries, white pepper and a touch of rose and violet. Medium-bodied, the palate has silky, smooth tannins, fresh and vibrant acidity, and shows well-integrated French oak. The long and perfumed finish is smooth and elegant.

    The Pinot Noir vineyards are planted on gently rolling hills with different aspects and are trained to vertical shoot position. The sites are irrigated via a ‘Sustainable Dry Farmed’ system, developed by Aurelio and his team, which allows for extremely precise and minimal irrigating, reducing their water footprint by 65%. The vines only require minimal work with the canopy, which enables the growers to obtain healthy grapes with good balance at harvest time. Yields vary between 7,000 and 8,000 kilograms per hectare. The proximity of the vineyards to the Pacific coast endows the wine with tremendous freshness, minerality, and cool climate typicity. The granitic soils of the Coastal Mountains have varying percentages of clay, which contributes elegance, creaminess and a unique sense of place.

  • 2021 The Hermit Crab Viognier/Marsanne, d’Arenberg Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2021 The Hermit Crab Viognier/Marsanne, d’Arenberg

    £1495

    The 2021 Hermit has an Incredibly fragrant nose full of sweet apricot and gingery spice. The palate is luscious and generous but has great acid which tightens the wine, adding freshness and a clean crisp finish. Slight pithy feel which builds on the spice notes. Lovely as a fresh stand-alone drink that still exhibits some mouthfeel, or equally well adapted to enjoy with a range of foods from freshly shucked oysters through to spicy Thai style dishes.

    Many of McLaren Vale’s vineyards are on free-draining soils underlain with limestone, formed by the calcareous remains of the local marine fauna. One such creature was the Hermit Crab, a reclusive little crustacean that inhabits the cast-off shells of others. The Osborn family thought the name appropriate for this, McLaren Vale’s first-ever blend of Viognier and Marsanne. “Hermit” is also an abbreviation for the French appellation of Hermitage, where the Marsanne grape variety dominates.

  • 2020 Or & Azur Rose, Gerard BertrandRose Wine

    2020 Or & Azur Rose, Gerard Bertrand

    £1550

    This is another fabulous Rosé from the master that is Gerard Bertrand. A delicate pink rosé delivering aromas of red berries, blackcurrant and wild strawberry. Harmoniously balanced, the refreshing palate of citrus and grapefruit is layered with delicate spice and a touch of violet.

For example, the use of pesticides identified as harmful to pollinators is prohibited. The label also requires apiaries to be installed on the estates.
