  1. Anette Closheim 'Rouge' 2015 German Red Wine

    Anette Closheim 'Rouge' 2015

    £11.75

    £11.75

    It was frustrating. Britta had a soft spot for well-built men; but she also liked the gentle touch. A little subtlety. Seemingly, you can't have both. However, she wasn't one to compromise. Holding out for the perfect partner, she rewrote her online dating profile to be a little more ambiguous. "Wanted, structured, spicy relationship with a well-made partner. Needs the body to deliver. Prefer smooth."

    Being old-fashioned, Dirk didn't quite understand. Bless. He hastened round to "he 'Woman of the Nahe', maker of potions, and she made him just the thing. A velvety composition, with flavours of chocolate, wild berries and mint. What woman could resist such a combo? Well, that remains to be seen... Dirk hasn't been spotted since he knocked on Britta's door.

  2. Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016 German White Wine

    Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Klaus was head-over-heels. Granted, he'd only seen Adelheid's picture, and - of course - fallen for her witty yet engaging online dating profile. But he'd truly tumbled. The last thing he was expecting was an answer to his hopeful message. And she wanted to meet! Klaus was in wonderland! The problem was he'd somewhat 'embellished' his description of himself.

    Adelheid's message revealed she was drawn to the wit, acumen, and sagacity he made much of. She was enamoured by the thought of a clever, practical man. And Klaus was far from that. Enter the fabled 'Woman of the Nahe'. Maker of potions. Just one sip of her 'Savvy' elixir and Klaus was brimming with canniness. What's more, the potion was just as elegant, lively and racy as Adelheid claimed to be. But that remained to be seen...

  3. Anette Closheim Riesling 2016 Germany White Wine

    Anette Closheim Riesling 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    A trail of failed relationships behind her; one disappointing beau after another. In desperation one weepy evening, Beatrice turned to an online dating site. Surely the right gentleman was out there somewhere. However, so thick were her tears she failed to notice her phone autocorrect one of the key words as she typed her profile. Instead of calling for a man with a good sense of reason, it altered it*. A man with a good sense of Riesling.

    Eckard thought his luck was in! More than taken with Beatrice's titivating profile pic, he dashed off to the 'Woman of the Nahe', maker of potions, to secure one of the most persuasive Rieslings she could muster. It only remained to be seen whether Beatrice was as sharp witted and exotically fruity as the wine!

    *Perhaps she typed that word in quite a lot...

  4. Bibo Runge Riesling 2015 German White Wine

    Bibo Runge Riesling 2015

    Now £15.00

    Was £16.75

    £15.00

    Born into nobility, Bibo Runge had no choice but to follow the path his ancestry determined and take arms as Knight Errant. Given his predecessors, much was expected of him, and he excelled, even against their legendary feats. But Bibo felt something was wrong. Why should he exercise his ability merely in the pursuance of personal fame?

    Choosing to throw off the outdated chivalric code, he made the protection of common people his crusade, installing himself in a quiet town in the guise of a humble blacksmith. It must have been instinct. For the Devil, intending to ride out, sent his horse to the town to be reshod. Other blacksmiths would have quailed and bent to the task; but Bibo sent the horse packing, battling him with his bare hands. This wine celebrates Bibo, displaying all the intensity, purity and steel of the man himself, with a finish that lingers as long as the tales.

  5. Dry Riesling Bergrettung Trocken Mosel White Wine Germany

    Dry Riesling Bergrettung Trocken Mosel 2015

    £17.50

    £17.50

    This wine has a fantastic story. It comes from a collaboration between 10 wineries to save historic vineyards in particularly steep sites in Germany's beautiful Mosel Valley. The group's name, Bergrettung, takes its name from Berg (= mountain) and Rettung (= rescue). This vintage was made at the Staffelter Hof winery, whose owners trace back directly to Carl the Great and who founded Bergrettung. The wine? Impressively pure and super concentrated, this essentially dry Riesling balances pronounced wet slate minerality, with a zesty, acidic core and fantastic lime, mango and white peach fruit.

  6. Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 2015 White Wine

    Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 2015

    £18.00

    £18.00

    Erden is a village on the banks of the Mosel river. Treppchen literally means staircase, and refers to the terrace steps cut into the precipitous slopes of the valley opposite, on which the good people of Erden cultivate some of the finest Riesling grapes to be found anywhere in the World.

    And the wine they make from it is proper Riesling. Full of exotic floral and fruit aromas, a heady whiff of petroleum and, yes, sweetness, too. This is proper Riesling, the way it should be. Wine for grown ups.

  7. Huber Riesling Eiswine 37.5cl

    Huber Riesling Eiswein 2016 - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £35.00

    £35.00

    The Austrians are well known for their practical jokes, so it's little surprise everyone thought Markus was jesting when he suggested they went out to pick grapes. It was New Years' Eve for pity's sake! Freezing outside! Surely, he was drunk...

    But no! Markus was serious. Out they went, dressed to the nines, not finding it very funny at all. The thermometer read minus 11. Even the grapes were frozen. Well, the excess water in them was, leaving the flavours there for the taking. Caramel and spice, a dainty hint of meadow flowers, locked up since Spring. Extraordinary. See what you achieve when you have a sense of Huber?

  8. Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Red Wine

    Villa Wolf Pinot Noir 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    Everyone has heard the story about the boy who cried wolf, right? Well, we don't blame the poor lad because after trying this German red wine we felt like shouting (Villa) Wolf from the rooftops too.

    We simply love this classic expression of a Pfalz Pinot Noir, which owes its gorgeous mineral traits to the ideal mountain and river setting. With soft red fruits on the surface, but with earthy tannins and a spicy bite underneath, this is definitely a wolf in sheep's clothing (see what we did there?)

  9. Weingut Gaul Dornfelder Spatburgunder Pfalz

    Weingut Gaul Dornfelder Pfalz 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    "The girls from Weingut Gaul, the sisters Karoline and Dorothee, have lived and breathed the family wine from youth to seniority. They took over the winery. encouraged by their elders to make Spätburgunder, Riesling, St. Laurent, even Dornfelder such as this one, ripe with cherries and with berries and quite savoury, with a lingering finish filling your entire mouth with flavour! We must doff our caps to wine that gives such sensory sonority, and the chiming vinous couplet of the Weingut Gaul sorority!

  10. Weingut Gaul Spatburgunder Pfalz

    Weingut Gaul Spatburgunder Pfalz 2015

    £14.50

    £14.50

    So, your family takes over a vineyard when you're a kid, you can't move for wine in your house, and your parents send you away first to work in vineyards and then to a special wine university. You'd be forgiven if your next steps were to ditch the family, move into a squat in Amsterdam and go on a journey of self-empowerment with money your dad had given you.

    Karoline and Dorothee Gaul had just that childhood, but they decided that winemaking was far better than squatting, and embarked upon a journey of vinous discovery with a winery their family had given them. And they make uniformly stunning wines, like this elegantly-structured, cherry and blackberry charmer. Power to the sisters!

  11. Wageck Riesling 'Green Label' 2016 German White Wine

    Weingut Wageck Fundament 'Green Label' Riesling 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    They say opposites attract. And attraction is the basis of love. The fundament, you could say. It's perhaps fitting then that Frau Wageck was so different from her husband. He was thickset and hirsute; she was all angles. Knobbly knees and cheekbones you could serve cheesecake with. However, she was incredibly goofy.

    She was so goofy, in fact, that her teeth didn't meet and she found eating increasingly difficult. Dentistry in Pfalz not being very advanced, Frau Wageck turned to the winery. Could they help? Of course! They made a Riesling as structured as she was, with the same up front fruitiness. But they underpinned all that with zippiness that soon had her sucking her teeth back in! Problem solved.

  12. Wageck Fundament Spätburgunder 2013 German Red Wine

    Weingut Wageck Fundament Spätburgunder 2013

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Herr Wageck was one of the more notable residents of Pfalz. A lovely man. But with the heaviest, thickest eyebrows ever. So heavy, in fact, they began to weigh down his forehead, until they literally drooped over his eyes. This was no good! Wageck couldn't see his beloved, stick-thin wife.

    His neighbours set to solving the problem. Barbers failed. Gardeners failed. Lumberjacks gave up. No matter how often the bushy protuberances were cut, they simply grew back thicker. In the end, Wageck turned to the winery to see if they could help. They fashioned a Pinot Noir as pleasant and rounded as him, of such surprising persistence just one sip had him raising his eyebrows! Problem solved.

  13. Weingut Wageck Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Weingut Wageck Sauvignon Blanc Tertiar 2016

    Now £12.15

    Was £13.50

    £12.15

    German Sauvignon? How does that work? Well, it starts off in your vineyard, going for the purest fruit. Then they pick it by hand, and sort the best of it by hand as well. No, a different hand, you muppet! Then they're allowed to stand for a day - the grapes, not the hands.

    Are you listening to me? - before fermenting some of them in stainless steel and some of them in oak. They filter it but they don't fine it, so it's all right for vegans. Lovely herby aromas, bit of flintiness in there, fresh firm palate with a touch of green apple, Bob's your uncle! Lovely with a bit of chicken in tarragon. Wossat? Insensitive? Me??

  14. Wittman 100 Hills Pinot Blanc

    Wittman 100 Hills Pinot Blanc 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    'Tis an admirable, and difficult thing, we think, to make a poised, distinctive and balanced Pinot Blanc, but that is what Philipp Wittmann, of Westhofen in southwest Germany, has done. It is a grape that is notably lacking in acidity and needs its gentle nutty and orchard fruit flavours patiently coaxed out. But then Mr Wittmann does have 350 years of family history making wines in Westhofen's fertile hills on his side. Still, pretty impressive all the same.
