2013 Barolo - Vajra & Aldo Conterno Pre Release

"Incessant rain during winter and spring delayed budbreak and opened the door to fungal diseases, although many vineyards were too waterlogged for tractors. From mid July temperatures shot up and remained high during August, albeit with cooler nights. September was very sunny and dry, but the growing cycle was still two weeks late, necessitating a delayed harvest. The prognosis is for a vintage similar in quality to the already legendary 2010s." Jancis Robinson MW. Without doubt an amazing vintage, albeit in small quantities. Shipping in October 2017 apart from Vajra which is due shortly.



2015 Vintage Port - Graham's, Niepoort, Fladgate (Taylors/Fonseca/Croft), Dow's, Quinta do Vesuvio

2015 has provided us with some amazing Ports; Niepoort have declared this as a Vintage year with Niepoort & Bioma released while the Fladgate Partnership have released Single Quinta Ports. Graham's Stone Terraces is in very limited supply.

Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2012 Pre-Release

James Suckling has this to say about the 2012 Argiano Brunello: “Fantastically complex aro­mas of spices, dried flowers and plums follow through to a full body, integrated and polished tannins and a superb finish. This is a 2012 Brunello with it all. Drink in 2018.” He gave it 96 points. The grapes from each parcel of vines treated in separate batches. After destemming and a light pressing, maceration and fermentation tool place at controlled temperatures in stain­less steel tanks for two to three weeks. Only the indigenous yeasts naturally present in the grapes were used. When fermentation was complete, the wine was transferred to concrete tanks, in which the malo-lactic fermentation was completed. The wine then spent twenty-four months in large Slavonian oak barrels....



DeMorgenzon Reserve Chardonnay & Chenin Blanc 2016 Pre-Release

We are very excited to be able to announce the latest releases of two of the most successful wines of last year (along with their regular Chenin Blanc). We were very fortunate to have Carl van der Merwe host a tasting for us last year and everyone who attended left very impressed with DeMorgenzon as a winery. We sold all we could of these two exceptional wines from the previous vintage. These wines are in high demand as they have had phenomenal success in various competitions over the last few years and have also received very high praise from both the hugely influential South African Platter's Wine Guide and Tim Atkin MW who is rapidly becoming one of the most admired journalists who cover South African wine and his annual guide is eagerly anticipated. Some technical data is attached...



Errazuriz 'Las Pizarras' 2015 Re-Release

We have been offered another small parcel of these two phenomenal single vineyard wines from the superb Errazuriz estate. Again we are offering as 6-packs of each wine and also as a Mixed 6-Pack.



Felton Road 2016 New Releases

By Nigel Greening "Our 20th Vintage marks a return to full size production of our Pinot Noir's after a couple of leaner years however the Chardonnay’s allocation remains very small (and, as we have the 17’s in barrel now, we can advise it will be followed by the smallest vintage in the last decade). The release is later as we now are giving the Bannockburn Pinot Noir the same length of elevage as Cornish Point and Block 3 then releasing these wines together with Bannockburn Chardonnay. Calvert, Block 5 and the single block Chardonnays are still in barrel and will be bottled August / September. This is now our standard pattern for releasing wines. So what of the wines of our 20th vintage? A report below. And now for something completely different… One of the puzzles of...



Harewood Estate, Western Australia New Releases

Some spectacular Rieslings, Chardonnay and Semillon-Sauvignon from our latest venture from Western Australia. The Rieslings are from three different sub-regions within Western Australia...



Kurt Angerer, Kamptal Austria New Releases

I'm delighted to have just taken shipment of the latest releases from the wonderful Kurt Angerer. His wines improve every year as his knowledge and understanding of the vineyards increases. These latest releases have already proven very popular with a couple of notable Cambridge colleges ordering some. 2016 Kies may be the best yet, and 2015 was a fantastic vintage in Kamptal and we have good range from this vintage. Whilst prices have crept up, these are still fabulous values. We have a couple of mixed cases available which is a great way to explore these fabulous terroir driven wines. There is a Mixed 10-pack and a Mixed 6-Pack of whites only.



Luminous Hills & Seven of Hearts, Oregon Pinot Noir Pre Arrival Offer

I am really excited to be offering these stunning Pinot Noir's made by Byron Dooley. As some of you may know we are founder members of a group of Independent Wine Merchants called the Vindependents, (now 30+ strong). I was on the buying panel for California and Oregon. We tasted through an ocean of really tedious samples, and like a belisha beacon we tasted the Luminous Hills and Seven of Hearts Pinot Noirs and all of us smiled immediately. These are superb wines, friendly wines, textural and complex yet with immediacy. I had seen the ratings of these wines on Antonio Galloni's website Vinous, he is ex Robert Parker and I find him and his reviewer's to be pretty reliable- often rating the smaller wineries and less showy styles. So I had requested samples were sent over. Thankfully they...



Nals Margreid Alto Adige Italy 2015's

We sold a huge amount of this wineries Pinot Bianco Penon 2014 that was top rated in Decanter. A few months ago the winery presented a range of wines and we loved nearly all of them. Rather than taking a huge amount on I have picked my 3 favourites, including the follow on 2015 Penon. 2015 was a great vintage and these wines are packed with flavour yet have a freshness and precision that makes them perfect Spring/Summer drinking, and they are very food versatile too. Well worth a try these wines, they are exceptional and the mixed 6 is the perfect way!



Noel Young's Wine Club

I'm delighted to announce the launch of my new Wine Club. This is something I have been thinking about for a while now as I speak to many people when doing tastings further afield about how they subscribe to one of the more well-known wine clubs and are left somewhat nonplussed by the contents.......



Platter's 5* South African Wines 2017

Platter's South African Wine Guide 2017 This is South Africa's most respected wine guide and the results announced on October 31st were eagerly anticipated by the wineries and consumers. We have a number of 5* wines and a couple of the Wines of The Year. These are all great wines and are just further evidence of the massive resurgence of high quality South African wine. These along with our selection from Tim Atkin MW's 2016 South Africa report are some simply superb wines that are garnering a huge amount of interest from our customers. Many of these wines are due in shortly, they are available by the bottle - mix your own and get 5% off £250, 10% off £500 or by the discounted 6 pack. Many of these wines have 'cult' status and are highly sought after, so don't delay!



Rhone 2015 En Primeur

After a number of solid 7/10 vintages, it's a delight to be able to offer and discuss a fabulous year - "grandiose et exceptionnel" as the producers have described it. From what we have tasted, it's hard to disagree. All wines are offered under bond. More to be added.



Ridge Vineyards 2017 Release incl 2016 Monte Bello Futures

As ever we are delighted to offer the latest release from one of California's most iconic and recognised wineries. As seems the norm these days, allocations are further reduced although this is due in no small part to the vintage. There is no Chardonnay.



Siro Pacente Brunello di Montalcino 'Vecchie Vigne' 2011 New Release

The 2010 was magnificent and very well received - but very much a wine for the long haul. This 2011 is very approachable by comparison, & scores an impressive 95/100 from Antonio Galloni MW who notes that this beauty can even be drunk this year.



Taylor's 325th Anniversary Port

Taylors 325th Anniversary Limited Edition Port Taylor’s Port are celebrating their 325th anniversary next month and to mark the occasion are releasing a special edition Tawny Port (average age 15 years) stock available from 2nd May. The wine is superb (we tried a couple of weeks ago), pricing good and the packaging looks great.

Thelema 'Sutherland' Chardonnay 2015 - 96/100 Decanter

Tim Atkin MW (Decanter Magazine): "An alluring meaty, aromatic, reductive nose - complex stuff. It is dense, smoky and mineral, as well as long and savoury with tangy acidity. This has lovely focus and a fine, tapering finish. Very classy!" 96 points John Hoskins MW (Decanter Magazine): "Struck match complexity comes through to the fore; it is modern and very expressive. A truly fine Chardonnay. Spice and tightly wound richness combines with excellent freshness underpinning the whole. This is where South Africa rules the roost - exceptional, unbeatable value in the mid-price tier. " 96 points Greg Sherwood MW (Decanter Magazine): "It is hard to deny the complex nose of struck match reduction on this wine, which mingles with green pears and dusty granitic minerality. Lean and...



Zalto Glasses & Decanters

We are delighted to now be stocking what are perhaps the finest wine glasses on the market today. We are stocking just 4 glasses and 2 decanters (they don't make a massive range anyway) and over the past few months have been receiving glowing praise from some of our finest journalists: “What I love is that Zalto glasses are the thinnest and most delicate glasses I have come across, yet seem springy and almost elastic in the hand ” Jancis Robinson, FT “these are, truly, the best I’ve ever used.” Andrew Jefford, Decanter “I rate the Austrian company Zalto particularly highly. Its glasses are delicate and elegant to hold, and beautifully designed for enjoying wine.” Olly Smith, Daily Mail. What makes Zalto unique? First, it’s the design: wide bases, straight sides, ultra-thin...
