  1. Jean Luc Colombo Le Vent Blanc France

    Jean-Luc Colombo Côte du Rhône 'Le Vent Blanc' 2015

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Jean-Luc Colombo's wines provide exceptional quality for every day Rhône drinking. The affectionate nickname for husband, father, winemaker and charismatic figurehead, Jean-Luc, is 'the winemaking wizard of the Rhône Valley' and this sassy, swaggeringly-fruited blend of Clairette Blanche and Rousanne really does feel like it's sprinkled with magic.
  2. Marvelous Yellow 2016 White Wine

    Marvelous Yellow 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    Like most complex characters, Adam Mason had many sides. On the one hand he was determined to make untrammelled varietal wine. On the other, he delighted in the concert of flavours, the jazz that blending could bring about.

    Having mastered the art of restraint with his Yardstick range, Adam wanted to let loose. A smile replaced his concentrated frown, and he went into the vineyards singing, picking a mélange of French white grapes with the pizzaz of a band leader cueing in musicians. You'll be helpless against the result! Chalky bass notes, trills of lychee, honeysuckle and papaya... Anyone fancy a dance?
  3. Miles Mossop Saskia

    Miles Mossop 'Saskia' 2013

    £19.00

    £19.00

    This is the quintessentially artisanal produced wine, following the philosophy of winemaker Miles Mossop, of hand crafted wines with as little interference as possible, showing a purity of expression.

    We wonder if he feels the same way about raising his children, who all his wines are named after! This ode to his daughter is full of honeysuckle, white peach, lime and toasted almonds with a fairly full palate and lengthy finish. I hope Kika and Max (the other two wines) have been raised as well as Saskia!
  4. Mullineux White 2014

    Mullineux White 2014

    £17.00

    £17.00

    You'll be hard pushed to find a wine that shows off its roots quite as well as Mullinieux White. It's a blend of three different grapes and the Chenin Blanc is from vines up to 80 years old; that's great but not too unusual. But, Chris and Andrea are so dedicated to showing off what Swartland has to offer that they've grown each grape variety in different soil types and only indigenous yeasts are used during fermentation. There's no questioning where this wine comes from. With so much dedication, it's no wonder they're known as one of the best wine producers in South Africa. The final product has a stony, slatey aroma with a zip of limey acidity and a rich, supple mouth-feel. Swartland tastes amazing.
  5. Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth

    Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Right! Grow up! Stop sniggering like a schoolchild because you've seen the word prat. It isn't prat, because it's French. So it's praaaaah. See? Besides, titter as you might, this vermouth is very far from prattish in any sense of the word. A 'prat', the Oxford English Dictionary would have it, is 'an incompetent or stupid person; an idiot.'*

    So how could the word 'prat' be associated with an aromatised wine this good, based on Picpoul and Clairette grapes, and infused among other things with Roman Chamomile, Nutmeg from Indonesia and Bitter Orange from Tunisia? Yeah. And Gentian from France. Who's the prat now?

    *'Prat' also means 'a person's buttocks.' I bet you didn't know that.
