  • 2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San GuidoRed Wine

    2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido

    £5000

    Sassicaia’s younger brother Guidalberto consistently offers incredible value from the Tenuta San Guido stable.   Nicolo Incisa della Rocchetta, Tenuta San Guido’s owner, explains how Guidalberto came into being: “first of all, [there was] the desire to see what we could accomplish with Merlot, a grape that we had never used before; second, the desire to offer the consumer a wine which could be appreciated at a younger age compared to our veteran Sassicaia”.

    The 2020 Guidalberto has an increased percentage of Merlot (60%) that brings added freshness to a wine that is in great shape for one so young. This the 21st vintage of Guidalberto has a profound nose that offers ripe, fragrant fruit and sweet spice. Plum, strawberry, blackcurrant and forest floor reveal the interplay of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which constitute equal parts of the blend this year. The palate is juicy and supple, with admirable freshness given the warm vintage, framed by fine tannins. Drink 2022-2030.

  • 2018 Beaune 1er Cru ‘Clos du Roi’, Chateau de SantenayRed Wine

    2018 Beaune 1er Cru ‘Clos du Roi’, Chateau de Santenay

    £5150

    Taken from the Clos Du Roi 1er Cru vineyard, this Pinot demonstrates the best of the Beaune sub-region and is known for its wonderful ageing potential.

    The 2018 Chateau de Santenay Beaune 1er Cru “Clos du Roi” is very dark deep garnet in the glass. The nose is concentrated with ripe black fruit married with delicate oak characters. The palate is full-bodied with elegant and big tannins. The freshness of the fruit and complexity make this a remarkable wine with great finesse and style.

     This Premier Cru vineyard takes its name from the fact that it was claimed by King Louis XI during the 15th Century following the death of Charles the Bold, the last Duke of Burgundy. The soils here are free-draining with a mixture of clay and sand, and a subsoil that has a high limestone content. This forces the roots of the vine to dig deep to find the vital nutrients and water they need, which in turn results in a high concentration of flavour within the fruit.

  • 2018 Pinot Noir ‘G.P.S Series’, Kershaw Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2018 Pinot Noir ‘G.P.S Series’, Kershaw

    £5200

    Captivating floral attributes underscored by purity, focus and freshness framed by fine powder tannins yet cushioned by a succulent texture and flavours of black cherry, pomegranate, rose petal and raspberry.  Only 1708 bottles were produced.

    The G.P.S. (Grape Positioning System) series is made from exciting small parcels of fruit selected from carefully chosen vineyards outside the Elgin Valley. This Pinot Noir comes from two small parcels grown in a protected lee of the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, a cool climate area renowned for Pinot Noir. Bordered by the Babylonstoren Mountains to the north and the Kleinrivier Mountains to the south, clouds are trapped by the surrounding mountains, retaining cool air and moisture into the valley. The area is also influenced by the Antarctic Benguela current from the Atlantic Ocean, which brings cooling breezes, resulting in cool average summer temperatures. The long hang time builds complex characters with balancing acidity.

    From the Winemaker: During the year, I have the opportunity to visit a number of areas outside of Elgin. Occasionally, I come across something so fascinating it deserves a closer look. In 2018, I discovered two small parcels of Pinot Noir grapes grown on Bokkeveld Shale in a protected lee of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley – an area renowned for Pinot Noir. It made sense to grasp the opportunity with both hands and the GPS Series is a testament to those special places.

  • 2018 Pinot Noir ‘Clonal Selection’, Kershaw Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2018 Pinot Noir ‘Clonal Selection’, Kershaw

    £5200

    A world-class Pinot Noir from Richard Kershaw M.W and easily one of South Africa’s best.  This Pinot Noir is characterised by its captivating floral attributes underscored by purity, focus and freshness framed by fine powder tannins yet cushioned by a succulent texture and flavours of black cherry, pomegranate, rose petal and raspberry. Only 8056 bottles & 33 Magnums produced.

    The grapes come from 11 tiny vineyard parcels in several locations in the Elgin Valley. Elgin is the coolest wine region in South Africa and is situated on an inland, hexagonal-shaped plateau, at an altitude of 300 metres. The region is surrounded by mountains and lies just over six miles from the Atlantic Ocean, which brings occasional sea-borne mists. February is the hottest month of the year, with daytime temperatures peaking at 23°C and night-time temperatures dipping to 14°C. The benefit of this cooler climate is that the grape cluster stays connected to its roots for longer, so it develops complex characteristics and achieves physiological ripeness more gradually, resulting in lower sugar levels and consequently lower alcohol levels.

  • 2020 Earthborn ‘6 Barrels’ Chardonnay, AtaraxiaWhite Wine

    2020 Earthborn ‘6 Barrels’ Chardonnay, Ataraxia

    £5200

    The Ataraxia Chardonnay Earthborn Organic – this new organic variation of the highly endowed Chardonnay’s of Ataraxia is truly exceptional! Fermented in 20% new wood, it is taut and tangy, with delicious aromas of mandarin and lemongrass, subtle spices, an impressive structure, stunning depth and exceptional minerality. 

    This “Vin de Terroir” was made from Ataraxia’s first vintage of organic grapes grown on its own vineyards. He presents a journey of conversion to organic principles that began five years ago. Spontaneous and complete barrel fermentation without additives, followed by maturation in specially selected French oak barrels, sourced exclusively from Burgundian coopers, were part of a gentle and minimalist winemaking approach without interfering with the natural vinification processes.

  • 2018 Rod and Spur Shiraz-Cabernet, Rockford Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2018 Rod and Spur Shiraz-Cabernet, Rockford

    £5200

    This incredible blend of Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon is a uniquely Australian blend that pays homage to the great Aussie wines of yesteryear.    With plenty of sweet spice and brambly black fruit comes a concentrated blackcurrant and vanilla aroma following on to a rich, full-bodied palate. The flavour is full of crunchy black fruit with soft tannins, refreshing acidity and subtle vanilla sweetness.

    The name Rod & Spur acknowledges the contribution of Rockford’s growers who spend the cold Barossa winters hand-pruning their vines in the traditional rod and spur method. This wine is a return to the great Australian reds of the 1950’s and 60’s, when Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon blends dominated the premium market. This very Australian wine is not common in any other region of the world.

    Like all Rockford reds, the grapes for this wine go through a 1880’s Bagshaw de-stemmer, are open fermented and then gently basket pressed. All components are aged separately in a combination of seasoned American and French oak hogsheads and large oak casks for two years. This allows the tannins to soften and colours and flavours to consolidate, before being bottled under the highest quality cork.

    The 2018 vintage was described by Rockford’s winemaking team as ‘One of those years when things just fell into place. Despite the season being one of the driest in many decades, it lacked any prolonged heat waves or significant rainfall events. The Eden Valley Shiraz components, in particular, were standout in the warm dry conditions. The 2018 wines have striking colours, outstanding structure, richness and mouthfeel.

  • 2018 Judd Chardonnay, Ten Minutes By TractorWhite Wine

    2018 Judd Chardonnay, Ten Minutes By Tractor

    £5300

    Ten Minutes by Tractor needs little introduction, nor does the man in charge – Martin Spedding. A gently-spoken man with a background in finance and IT, in 2002, he finally acknowledged the fact that his true passion lay in wine. Despite his origins in New South Wales, he simply couldn’t get enough of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and would travel down to Victoria to immerse himself in Australia’s heartland of these noble varieties. In 2003 he visited one of his favourite small wineries on Mornington Peninsula and was delighted to discover that it was for sale. Without a moment’s hesitation, he snapped it up, and so began Martin’s journey with Ten Minutes by Tractor.

    Enticing notes of grapefruit and white flower build this fine structured wine filled with poise and precision. Green apple crunch leads into the crisp and clean finish that lingers with persistence displaying incredible length and purity.  Best drinking 2020-2030

  • 2016 Abednego GSM, Grant BurgeRed Wine

    2016 Abednego GSM, Grant Burge

    £5450

    The Abednego completes the Icon trio from Grant Burge Wines, sitting alongside the highly awarded Meshach and Shadrach which are Grant’s flagship Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is 100% Barossa using fruit sourced from Grant’s own vineyards with an average age of 110 years. The old vines deliver fruit with incredible concentration and depth giving the resultant wine the ability to develop over many years. The iconic 2016 Abednego is a richly flavoured and elegantly structured wine with a beautifully balanced palate, complemented by flavours of plums, spice and liquorice with hints of vanilla. The dense, mouth-filling mid-palate and long, textural finish combine to create a wine that is rich and elegant.   Drink now to 2035.

    The origin of the name of this wine comes from the fact that Abednego in Hebrew means the ‘Servant of Nego’, the Babylonian god of wisdom. Abednego, with Shadrach and Meshach, were cast into the fiery furnace by King Nebuchadnezzar in 600BC.  Grant Burge named his flagship and icon Shiraz Meshach (after his great grandfather Meshach Burge 1843-1942), and the icon Cabernet Sauvignon Shadrach (inspired by the story). This wine is Abednego to completer the trio with a trio of the Barossa’s finest grape varieties.

  • 2015 ILR Reserve Semillon, Brokenwood Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2015 ILR Reserve Semillon, Brokenwood

    £5495

    This is, without a doubt, one of the best Semillons produced anywhere in the world.  Consistently regarded as the definition of Semillon and it has the ability to age for decades.

    At 6 years of age on release, the colour is just starting to show some development with yellow tints complimenting the green edges. Lifted lemon curd and floral notes heading to beeswax, brioche and toast. Lively lime juice, lime cordial characters are backed by a superb zesty acidity. The magic of Hunter Valley Semillon is on display with texture, fruit weight and great length from a wine that sees no oak. The ILR Reserve Semillon is only released from the best years and 2015 is a beauty. Drinking well now but will improve for many years to come.

    The fruit for the 2015 ILR Reserve is sourced from Murphy’s Vineyard on Wilderness Road, on the banks of Black Creek in Lovedale.

  • 2009 Piccadilly Chardonnay, Grosset Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2009 Piccadilly Chardonnay, Grosset

    £5500

    Since the first release of Grosset Piccadilly in 1993, these wines have made a powerful statement about the potential of the Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills, a sub-region so cool that it is often considered marginal for table wine. ‘It’s a sub-region that takes time to understand’, says Grosset, ‘and the wines can be exquisite’.

    Followers of the Grosset Chardonnay will notice a consistency of style especially between the most recent three vintages of the wine. Jeff sees these as a return to the clearly defined style that he made in the 1990s: finer, lean, tighter and slightly lower in alcohol. Often shy and restrained on release and needing patience and time to reveal themselves, the Piccadilly Chardonnays come into their own by being more age-worthy than most of their peers.

    The 2009 Grosset Chardonnay is exuberant with tangy white peach and nectarine flavours, vibrant, juicy fleshy texture and zingy acidity that cleanses. There’s impressive integration of oak and fruit at a young age, the richness and concentration you’d expect, plenty of weight and a lively raciness that binds it all together.

    The Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay is handpicked, barrel fermented in French barriques and then left to mature in those barrels for nearly twelve months, followed by a further twelve months in bottle before release.   After 11 years in bottle this wine is singing from the rooftops and just shows the magnificence of the Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills.

    Only 590 cases produced.

    £5500

    An exceptional Paringa Estate Chardonnay that has benefited from being aged in our cellars.  Aromas of butterscotch and fig and layered with ripe and rich citrus.  The palate is textured with the perfect line of acidity, stone fruit and citrus are intermingled with savoury nutty barrel-ferment flavours.

Whilst Pinot Noir has always been Paringa’s most awarded variety, the unique microclimate also produces exceptional Shiraz and Chardonnay.

  • 2011 Meres Pinot Noir, KooyongRed Wine

    2011 Meres Pinot Noir, Kooyong

    £5500

    The vineyard name originates from the surrounding water bodies – the dams which flank the block on all sides.

    Its greater exposure to the north, west and east limits the vigour of the vines, while the sandier soil reduces water stress compared to Ferrous and Haven. These factors combine to make the wine silken, perfumed and approachable when young, as well as having flavour concentration and ageing potential.   This 2011 is full of life with red cherry, redcurrant, alluring rose petal and savoury notes dominating the nose and palate.  The tannins have softened over the years but are fine and silky.
