  1. Domaine des Amphores Saint-Joseph 2015 French Red Wine

    Domaine des Amphores Saint-Joseph 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    St Joseph Domaine Amphores, that's the domain of vases to us 21st Century folk. In ancient Greece, Amphora were often used to tell the tales of extraordinary events. They'd paint images of Jason and his Golden fleece, the Minotaur or Achilles and his bloomin' ankle. That was his week spot because as a baby, Zeus washed him in eternal potion or whatever and dipped him in by his ankle, just change foot, then he would've been fine! If we still painted our heroes on vases I imagine this wine would get an appearance, with concentrated dark forest berry notes, aromas of cloves and white pepper, I'm fairy sure Domaine Amphores would've conquered Troy, it's conquered our palates.
  2. Intellego Syrah 2015

    Intellego Syrah 2015

    £18.50

    £18.50

    Given how much wine the Ancient Greeks got through it's no wonder they came up with some good ideas. Of course, it's hard to say whether they did so much thinking because they had wine, or whether thinking led them to making wine. Either way, it's long been considered that contemplation is key to invention, and what better way to mull something over than with a glass in hand?

    It was in just such a circumstance that Swartland winemaker Jurgen had a rather clever thought. If two heads are better than one, why not bring together two parcels of the same varietal and see what came about. His Syrah sprang to mind. One from granite soil, the other from iron rich soil. One North East in aspect, the other South East facing. Different attitudes, different foundations. Together, really quite smart.

Take a sip, smack your lips, gaze into its deep violet colour and breathe in the ripe berry fruit and floral notes, whilst humming along to the famous 'Ten Green Bottles'. We'll give you a starting point. Santos Lima wines are capable of producing the equivalent to 14 million bottles in their 400ha of vineyards... Ahem, 'there were 14 million bottles sitting on the wall...'
