  • 2019 ‘Maggio’ Chardonnay, Oak Ridge WineryWhite Wine

    2019 ‘Maggio’ Chardonnay, Oak Ridge Winery

    £1375

    This vibrant Chardonnay delivers fruity aromas of peach, mango, pineapple and melon. Beautifully balanced on the palate, with refreshing citrus flavours through to a long finish.

    The estate covers 500 acres of vineyards throughout the Lodi American Viticultural Area, which are situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay. The Chardonnay grapes are grown in the Delta region, west of Lodi, which has a slightly cooler climate than central Lodi, both day and night. This gentle Mediterranean climate of warm days and coastal evening breezes is ideal for the cultivation of worldclass grapes. The mature vines are gnarled and sculpted by time, yielding small amounts of intensely flavoured fruit to create wines that are the ultimate expression of their terroir.

  • 2017 ‘Maggio’ Old Vines Petite Sirah, Oak Ridge WineryRed Wine

    2017 ‘Maggio’ Old Vines Petite Sirah, Oak Ridge Winery

    £1375

    This richly coloured wine offers opulent notes of dark berried fruit and blueberry, with nuances of black pepper, fine cocoa and vanilla. Showing lovely balance, the ripe fruit is enveloped in elegant tannins through to a lingering finish.

    The winemaking philosophy at Oak Ridge honours the importance of finding balance between the land and the makers, beginning first with growing quality grapes. Maggio has become part of the Lodi Rules initiative, which guides sustainable farming practices. Created by farmers it was initially launched as a grassroots educational integrated pest management programme in 1992. Recognising the importance of the ecosystem and biodiversity in the vineyard, it includes pest management initiatives, such as introducing natural predators, which minimises the risks to birds, bees, water and people. Water is carefully managed to ensure efficiency and waste is limited. The soils are treated with organic matter and are cultivated to maximise water penetration to sustain the vine’s roots. As a result the grapes are concentrated with flavour, which translates into fruit-forward, expressive wines.

  • 2017 ‘Elysium’ Black Muscat, Quady – 375mlDessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine

    2017 ‘Elysium’ Black Muscat, Quady – 375ml

    £1450

    Elysium is a brilliant crimson-purple colour with aromas of ripe berries, rose petals, strawberries and lychees. The vibrant acidity balances beautifully with the sweetness of this wine, making it very refreshing.    This wine is amazing with Chocolate desserts and cheese.   This really is one of those wow wines and always elicits the same response – wow!

    This wine also has a great birth story – In 1983 a nearby grower brought Andrew Quady some Black Muscat grapes that were previously destined for sacramental wine at a local church. When the church ceased operations, the grower was left with truckloads of perfectly ripe grapes. Upon hearing that newcomer Quady had some success with Orange Muscat, he knocked on Quady’s door and the rest as they say, is history.

    £1450

    Vibrantly coloured, Essencia delivers luscious sweet oranges and apricots on the palate with bittersweet orange marmalade notes which balance well with the fresh citrussy finish.

    In 1980 Andrew Quady discovered a parcel of underused Orange Muscat grapes in Reedley, California, which led him to make a wine that celebrated the intense aromas and spicy fruit flavours of the grapes. In Italy, the variety is known as Moscato Fior d’Arancio: Orange Blossom Muscat.

  • 2018 Pinot Noir, Monterey, Lockwood VineyardRed Wine

    2018 Pinot Noir, Monterey, Lockwood Vineyard

    £1995

    Lush strawberry and raspberry flavours combine with subtle hints of black tea and cardamom to form a complex, well structured Pinot Noir with fine integrated tannins and a deliciously long finish. Serve with chargrilled chicken, duck or a succulent joint of roast beef.

    The vineyard consists of a distinct and exceptional soil that was recognised by the US Geological survey in 1946: The “Lockwood Shaly Loam” is comprised of crushed fossilised seashells, similar to chalk and limestone and is only found in two small areas of Central California, adding an exclusive character of these premium wines. Dramatic shifts in temperature from day to night create ideal conditions for concentrating the flavours in the berries.

  • 2019 Fiction, Field RecordingsRed Wine

    2019 Fiction, Field Recordings

    £2250

    every vintage of Fiction is always a delight as it’s easy drinking as well as being a flavour bomb in a glass.   Winemaker Andrew Jones has a “kitchen sink” approach with this wine and amazingly the blend is 24% Zinfandel, 15% Syrah, 12% Alicante Bouschet, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Sangiovese, 7% Carignan, 7% Touriga Nacional, 6% Charbono, 6% Corvina and 4% Barbera. What a mouthful!

    Upon the first sip, you realise that Zinfandel and Syrah are the stars of the show giving the blend of spicy herbs and mixed berry notes.  When you pour this wine into your glass it is the colour of the darkest night with heady aromas of blueberry pie, luxurious suede, ham paninis, unlit menthol cigarettes and Roquefort tarts. Firm tannins anchor flavours of grilled meats, cherry cola, sweet carob and black liquorice chews, all cased up together conveniently in a cigar humidifier.

    Finishing nicely dry, this quintessential California red blend is delicious and any wine lover seeking an easygoing bottle to pair with a wide range of foods or to drink on its own should check this out.

    Wonderwall wines are made with grapes grown in extreme, coastal locations and this stunning, approachable Syrah from winemaker Andrew Jones of Field Recordings is for all those lovers of the Rhone Valley classics, Crozes-Hermitage, Cornas or Saint-Joseph.
