2011 Vintage Port offer April 2013 All wines are offered by the case under bond (ex- duty and vat) we expect to take delivery of most of the ports in October and November 2013 for onward delivery at which point the duty and vat will be payable by return. We hope to be able to host a tasting in the near future, please advise if you would be interested in attending. Please note this is a request for an allocation, 2011 is a very small vintage. We would hope to be able to confirm your order very quickly. 2011 is certainly looking to be a classic with all the major houses declaring. The wines are characterised as having great intensity, depth and purity. Deep in colour and fruit these wines will age extremely well, but in the more modern tradition provide pleasure at an early age too....
A man of boundless energy and incredible enthusiasm, Angelo Gaja recognised the potential of this magnificent estate, in the rolling hills to the south west of the town of Montalcino, almost twenty years ago. Since then he has dedicated himself to creating some of the most complex and refined wines in the region. The vineyards which surround the beautiful church of Pieve Santa Restituta occupy some of the best terroirs in Brunello di Montalcino. With a splendid southerly exposure and rocky soils, the estate has always had the potential to produce exceptional wines. In the hands of Angelo Gaja, who has made a series of highly acclaimed vintages at the estate, this has been accomplished. Angelo follows a traditional philosophy at Pieve to express the true essence of Brunello, a...

Ornellaia's Exceptional New Releases: The new vintage release from Ornellaia is always an exciting event but this year it is even more so as it marks the 25th anniversary of this iconic wine. All the bottles of Ornellaia 2010 have been given a special edition label to mark the occasion. While fame and praise have grown each year, the philosophy has remained true to the simple ethos that all the wines from the estate should express the terroir of exceptional vineyards. The limited production of Ornellaia, the attention to every detail in the vineyard and the cellar is entirely dedicated to this objective. Demand for the wines of Ornellaia has never been higher and the 2010 Ornellaia promises to be the most sought after yet, so registering your interest early is doubly important. We look...
A superb new producer to us, he has recently had a great write up from Jancis Robinson NW: "I have long been a fan and had the chance recently to taste some of the wines of which he is quite rightly most proud. They included his first single-vineyard wine, Sorte O Soro, that should be wonderful eventually and a new late-harvest wine, Sorte dos Santos, which I found slightly less convincing. He was encouraged to try these because of the exceptional (and delightfully evident) quality of the 2011 vintage, along with 2005 the best vintage, he thinks, since he started in Valdeorras in north-west Spain in 2004. It's apparently a matter of having just the right amount of rainfall before veraison. He didn't, show any 2010s because 2010 was such a cool year that the local Godello vines didn’t...
“It’s the on-trade’s answer to the Oscars – and finally the wait is over, with the results finally in for the Sommelier Wine Awards (SWA) 2013.

With a judging panel comprising 80 leading sommeliers and on-trade wine buyers, SWA is not just a celebration of medal-winning wines but also the most comprehensive assessment of trends and insight into the wine trade, seen from the perspective of the restaurant world.” We are just highlighting a few of the main award winners.
