  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. Barbadillo Manzanilla Solear Sherry NV

    Barbadillo Manzanilla Solear Sherry NV

    £6.25

    £6.25

    We have some riddles for you.

    "Voiceless it cries, wingless flutters; toothless it bites, mouthless mutters." What is it? The wind.

    "It's salty but pleasant, dry but refreshing, small but mighty." What is it? Solear Manzanilla by Antonio Barbadillo of course!

    Yes, don't be fooled by its size, there is a whole lotta dry, nutty, sea-salty goodness in this wee bottle. One to watch Almovodar films and pick at olives with.

  3. Gonzalez Byass 'Apostoles' Palo Cortado VORS 30 Year Old Solera NV

    Gonzalez Byass 'Apostoles' VORS 30 Year Old Solera NV

    £23.00

    £23.00

    If you're of a certain age you may remember a time when Cream Sherries ruled Britannia. You couldn't step into any licensed premises without seeing someone sipping a thick brown liquid out of a weird eggcup sized wine glass, sophisticated ay? If you're of a different age, that may have sounded like your Grandad regaling you with tales of wind-up televisions or whatever. Apostles is of the same idea as Cream Sherry, in that an aged sherry is lightly sweetened but that's really where the comparison end. A graceful Palo Cortado is blended with a powerful Pedro Ximenez and aged for more than 30 years. The wine is breath-taking, with concentrated dried fruit aromas combing with notes of caramel and mature wood. If wines like this keep coming over from Jerez, there's a good chance Sherry will conquer the UK once more.

  4. La Copa Vermouth NV

    La Copa Vermouth NV

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Like something conceived in an Anne Rice novel this elegant Vermouth is a mystery that beckons to be unveiled. A concoction of Oloroso and PX sherries blended with botanicals of wormwood, clove cinnamon, nutmeg, angelica root and cinchona bark.

    Poured into cut-glass and served chilled in the heat of the colonial riverside in New Orleans or in the dead of night in a 19th-century Parisian theatre. A secret whispered in the rolling silence of a boat belly. That becomes a welcome drink offered when arriving after a dusty carriage ride after a day's journey.

  5. Luis Pato Maria Gomes Metodo Antigo NV White Wine

    Luis Pato Maria Gomes Metodo Antigo NV

    £17.00

    £17.00

    This sparkler is a curious and wonderful thing. It is made using an ancient 'Rural' Method in which, unusually, the wine only undergoes fermentation once, using only naturally occurring sugars.

    If you are slightly bored and confused by this and care not for the methods used, let us tell you that it is made by Luis Pato, the Baron of the Bairrada and one of the most renowned producers in Portugal, who calls it his 'take on Prosecco'.

    If you're now muttering 'meh' at your screen because you don't give a monkeys about famous producers, let us simply say that it is an elegant and focused wine with generous mousse and aromas of white flowers and citrus. Does that do it?

  6. Lustau Moscatel Emilin NV 37.5cl

    Lustau Moscatel Emilin Sherry NV - Half Bottle 375ml

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Sherry is now out of the dusty cupboard and prancing around in trendy bars again (...can you use trendy as a current description of what's upmarket now?). Anyway, don't let all the cool cats in London have all the fun. Sherry is groovy. Sherry is 'with it'. Sherry...ah balls to these on trend terms. Burn the berets. Sherry is simply GREAT.

    This wine is a rare Moscatel version. It has a similar sweetness to the rich PX but is pale in colour. It's sweet dried fruit notes are balanced by citrus and floral flavours. And we sell it. Because we are the coolest, hippest wine shops in town!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Sierra Creek Red NV American Wine

    Sierra Creek Red NV

    Now £6.08

    £6.08

    Sometimes you just want to turn the radio on and let somebody else make your mind up for you. You've made mind-bending decisions all day, you don't want to come home and choose between Stockhausen and Ornette Coleman. Just press a button and dig what comes out, you'll like it more than you expected.

    Like this wine, it's smooth, fruity and friendly, and it doesn't want you to beat yourself up looking for a greater profundity. There you go, 'don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy...' Perfect. You didn't even know the Eagles were so good. Everything is splendid.

  10. Sierra Creek White Wine NV USA

    Sierra Creek White NV

    Now £6.08

    £6.08

    It's a happy little chappy is this wine. Like a gregarious mate, you can take it anywhere and it's guaranteed to quickly raise a smile with its easy charm and its bright, sunny character, full of the blissful Californian sun. Its ripe yellow plum and cantaloupe melon flavours would buddy up easily with a spicy vegetable stir-fry, ideally with a bunch of old friends, a comfy sofa and a Shirley Valentine DVD.

  11. Sierra Creek White Zinfandel Rose NV

  12. Stanton and Killeen Rutherglen Muscat NV - Half Bottle - 375ml

    Stanton and Killeen Rutherglen Muscat NV - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £14.00

    £14.00

    You are what you eat, so the saying goes. And this is manifestly true in Stanton and Killeen's achingly delicious Rutherglen Muscat.

    What does the wine 'eat'? It eats up the hot Australian sun, the time-honoured techniques maintained by this family-run winery and it gobbles up the love they put into it. The result? A raisin-rich, nutty, orange blossom and lavender-flavoured amber nectar.

  13. Vignerons de Maury 'Solera 1928' NV - 500ml

    Vignerons de Maury 'Solera 1928' NV - 500ml

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Maury is not, as many of you may believe, an American tabloid talk show, hosted by Maury Povitch but a fortified wine from the South of France. Well, technically it's both those things but one is delicious and nuanced, the other is a TV show with over 2,500 episodes all of which involve paternity tests and shouting, so there is only one that will occupy our time. Made from the Grenache grape and aged oxidatively this red fortified wine has powerful aromas of salted almonds, figs, redcurrants and is a great alternative to old tawny port. It will also, at no point demand you take a lie-detector test; the perfect peacemaker for a family dinner!

  14. Williams and Humbert Alegria Manzanilla NV

    Williams and Humbert Alegria Manzanilla Sherry NV

    £5.50

    £5.50

    ***2013 IWC Gold, 2013 IWC Trophy, 2013 IWSC Silver, 2013 Decanter Bronze***

    Paola Medina Sheldon. The name might not sit at the front of your mind, although we're not sure if she's ever surfaced from her studies long enough to introduce herself.

    She's the Head Winemaker at Williams and Humbert, a post she took up after obtaining separate degrees in Chemistry and Oenology, and Masters' degrees in Viticulture, Oenology and Legislation. Blimey, our Woodwork 'O' Level certificate can come off the wall now!

    We think she's just about qualified to make this elegant, nutty and salt-tinged Manzanilla. And she'd more than likely be able to take you to the cleaners if you disagreed.
