Xanadu Exmoor Drive ChardonnayRegular price £13.95
"this very intense and powerful, yet perfectly delineated and balanced wine..." 96 Points in Halliday Wine Companion 2017.
Aromas of grapefruit, ripe pear and white stone fruit with underlying toast and nuts. The palate is full of juicy fruit, roasted nuts and a creamy complexity lifted by refreshing acidity and a long, fruit driven finish.

Mount Langi Ghiran Billi Billi RieslingRegular price £11.45
Few places in the world make truly great Riesling, but Mount Langi in the Grampians, Victoria has to be one of those.
Intense aromas and flavours of lemongrass, lime and cherry blossom. A superbly refreshing wine with a generous texture and long finish.
Originally established in the 1870s, Mount Langi is nestled in the Grampians at the southern end of the Great Dividing Range in Victoria and is one of Australia's most distinguished wine producers. Rated 5 stars by James Halliday, he describes them as “A maker of outstanding cool climate peppery Shiraz, crammed with flavour and vinosity.”
SYP Naked on Roller SkatesRegular price £15.95
Another sultry and sexy wine from the Some Young Punks crew.
Expressive notes of musk, violets and charcuterie meats. The palate is dense with black fruits, a little quince and juniper spice.
Region: McLaren Vale, South Australia
Grapes: 85% Shiraz, 15% Mataro
Some Young Punks epitomise the best of New Australia. The punks consist of Col McBryde (voted Australia's Young Gun Winemaker of the Year), Jen Gardner (self confessed nerdy yeast expert) and thirdly Nic Bourke. Like most of the new breed of interesting, young winemakers in Australia they aren't moved by porty Shiraz and seek instead a sense of place and restraint the wines, influenced by the best of the Old World and the New. Col McBryde is as unimpressed by flash-in-the-pan medal-winners that are short on provenance as he is by being hide-bound to the Old World, and carves his own niche. Yet being media savvy and having a sense of humour allows this ironically quietly-spoken but earnest bunch to market themselves outrageously and to bring a fresh approach to labelling. Expect to see increasingly alarming labels sported by increasingly interesting and wholly unique wines. Grapes are carefully monitored and purchased locally.

Churchview Saint John Wild Ferment RieslingRegular price £24.00
A deliciously different style of Aussie Riesling - a wine with a beautifully soft kiss...!
Aromas of fresh lime, lemon, and a hint of corriander. Lovely citrus characters on the palate define the length and the floral characters add freshness on the palate. The subtle sweetness reveals itself as a lingering mid palate fruit bomb.
Region: Margaret River
