  1. Barbadillo Amontillado Spanish Sherry

    Barbadillo Amontillado Sherry NV

    £9.50

    £9.50

    'This porridge is too hot!'... 'This porridge is too cold!'... 'This porridge is just right.' So said Goldilocks, before being quite rightly evicted by three disgruntled homeowners...

    Luckily for them she hadn't found their bottle of Barbadillo Amontadillo Sherry! We can't imagine she would have been so quick to find faults with this ones deep amber colour, complex aromas and dried fruit flavours. Mmm...this sounds just right to us!

  2. Blandy's Duke of Clarence Madeira

    Blandy's Duke of Clarence Madeira 70cl

    Now £12.75

    We can thank the existence of this Portuguese sweetie to a very happy accident of history. Way back when, when merchants shipped their wares in wooden ships, the wine in the hold would often overheat, resulting in a delicious, caramelised wine.

    Winemakers have sought to recreate this effect by baking the wine ever since - and now Blandy's have perfected the technique. This Madeira, made with the more unusual Tinta Negra Mole, is toffeed, ripe and nutty Madeira, with ample sweetness and a clean, tart finish. A most serendipitous wine indeed.

  3. Churchill's Ten Years Old Tawny Port 50cl

    Churchill's 10 Year Old Tawny Port 500ml

    £18.00

    £18.00

    If you're someone for whom Port is weighed down by a connotation of stuffy old institutions, bizarre ceremonies and old school ties, don't let a snob from your past prevent you from trying this outstanding wine; this port will change your mind. If you've never tried a tawny, plunge into the depths of the rich, nutty, smoky flavours that abound here and contemplate the life of a convert. This example is versatile enough to be chilled before serving and doubles up as either an excellent aperitif or after-dinner treat.

  4. Gonzalez Byass Del Duque Amontillado Sherry 30 Year Old

    Gonzalez Byass Del Duque Amontillado Sherry 30 Year Old - Half Bottle 375ml

    £23.00

    £23.00

    Sometimes we really wonder how certain winemaking techniques were arrived at. Sherry making techniques in particular.

    After fortifying the wine to halt the alcoholic fermentation and keep it sweet (fair enough), someone must have then thought, 'what if we let it sit in a wooden tub for, maybe, five, no no... ten, sod it make that thirty years. Yup, then let's see what it tastes like then'.

    Well, these bonkers Andalusians, whoever they are, were obviously geniuses with much acumen, as this is precisely the way to produce moreish, almost umami-tasting Amontillado like this.

    The 30 years in American oak casks has transformed the humble Palomino grape into an unctuous, vanilla, cedar and fig-flavour bonanza of a Sherry. Three cheers for the vinous vanguard!

  5. Offley Tawny Port NV Fortified Wine

    Offley Tawny Port NV

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Tawny. In the avian world, it refers to a beautiful, golden-coloured owl that is, in fact highly territorial and non-migratory.

    Offley Tawny Port is an elegant fortified wine, offering mature and fresh flavours with a classic style. A typical drink that combines modern techniques with years of experience.

  6. Quinta Do Noval 10 YO Tawny Port NV

    Quinta Do Noval 10 YO Tawny Port NV

    Now £19.00

    Was £24.00

    £19.00

    Drinking port can be like opening up those tradional, wooden russian dolls. As you open each doll you reveal another one, another style of port. The first one is like trying basic ruby port-ok not bad, then the next you discover LBV port- which is much better.

    After some generous soul gives you a glass of single vintage port-it's brilliant and you think you have hit the last doll. But then you discover there is one more. The last one.

    A fine tawny port. Silky butterscotch, dried fruits and nutty flavours- completely new flavours compared to the previous ones. You really can't get any further than that.
