Wine of the Week

Circumstance Mourvèdre, Stellenbosch 2017

Mourvedre is perfect for Waterkloof, with its head in the sun and feet in the sea.  94 points by Tim Atkin MW.

£14.62 from £16.24( case of 6 is £87.72 )

An elegant rendition of this normally unruly varietal. Features raspberry, dark fruit with herbal and graphite notes whilst an almost meaty, wild aroma can be detected on the nose. Typical vigor expected from this varietal, with a high concentration of fine tannin and a surprising lightness of touch helped by the lower alcohol.

Ready Made Cases     A range of mixed 6 and 12 bottle selections we imagine you'll like. 

Free delivery to addresses within 20 miles of our warehouse for orders of £75 or more in value. Order your case by clicking on the title below or by selecting at the Online Store page, where you can also find more about the wines.

Not Simply Pinot Grigio

£55.00     2 bottles of each;

Pinot with more than normal style....

Vinazza Pinot Grigio,  blended with Garganega the Soave grape.

Terrazze Pinot Grigio  from the terraces of the Moon, special hillside sites in the Trentino home of Pinot Grigio.

Bottega Vinai Pinot Grigio  top of the range, multi award winning Pinot Grigio, also from Trentino. Showing just how much character this undervalued grape can provide.

Pinot Grigio is typically a zesty white wine that is as refreshing as a cold glass of lemonade on a hot Summer's day. AKA Pinot Gris, it's dry with a punchy acidity and flavours of lemons, limes, green apples and honeysuckle. Each of the above examples delivers this and more.

Might have said "macho" too, but that would be silly. Mind you, it is a grape that likes to deliver plenty of in yer face fruit and flavour. Happily, this lot also offer up interest and style aplenty, while also honouring their country of origin. They are all good examples and together provide a Malbec fan some exciting anti-pandemic foreign travel.

Cabernet, Showdown, Man with the Ax

Cabernet Sauvignon

£53.40- 6 bottles, just the one wine, 10% off single bottle price

One of the most popular Wines of the Week, so maybe a good thought to offer it up like this? If you need any reminding, it is fine stuff - pure, well ripened and carefully blended Cabernet grapes aged for six months in American oak, resulting in a very persuasive ad for Californian reds, not a monster (only 13.5%) but rich and flavour-layered. 

The Listening Station ( Australia )

£45.50 - 6 bottles, 2 of each




From Victoria, inspired by the Australian night sky, these are all three forward, very pleased to meet you types, heart on their sleeve, but with a fruity depth that is hard to resist.

Sauvignon Blanc, Camillona

Gavi, La Battistina

Barbera d'Asti, Ceppi Storici

Barolo, Flori, Araldica

The Piemonte region of North West Italy is home to some of the world's finest wine producers, famous for many types of bold robust reds as well as unctuous elegant whites. Without pushing the purse too far, we hope, here is a selection that should give an idea what the fuss is about.

Oh Merlot, where art thou?

Peculiar Mr Pat Merlot, South East Australia

Les Oliviers Merlot Mourvedre, Languedoc, France

Sanvigilio Merlot, Cavit, Venezie, Italy

Adobe Reserva Merlot, Rapel Valley, Chile

Cape Heights Merlot, Western Cape, South Africa

Merlot is a versatile and adaptable variety, bless it's heart. It'll grow in most climates without making too much of a fuss and as such can display a variety of characters. These are all fine examples of the fruit along with the climate and terroir in question. A must for any merlot fan!

Merlot, Peculiar Mr.Pat, Australia

Garnacha, Borsao, Spain

Just because BBQ flavours tend to be strong doesn't mean the wine should lack character, and these certainly don't.. Robust enough to manage the charred solids and yet add to the gustatory experience through developed and succulent flavours, these bottles should be welcomed at any ritual burning.
