Tenuta Santi Giacomo e Filippo BellAntonio Elevato in Anfora 2017Regular price £18.95
A rich and textured white wine with great depth and complexity given from being made in clay amphora. Matches beautifully with antipasto and meat dishes, but equally very friendly drunk without food.
Grapes: Incrocio Bruni 54
Incrocio Bruni 54 is a crossing by pollenation of Sauvignon Blanc and Verdicchio which was done in 1936 by Professor Bruno Bruni while working for the Italian Ministry of Agriculture. It is only found in the Marche region and Tenuta Santi Giacomo e Filippo are championing it as Marche's flagship grape. Rightly so!

Reyneke Organic Natural Chenin Blanc 2016 Limited EditionRegular price £64.95
What a treat from this highly regarded organic and biodynamic producer in Stellenbosch! On the nose there are complex notes of yellow peach and nectarine stone fruit, honey, burnt oranges, citrus peel and a gorgeous salinity. Vibrant and clean on the palate, perfectly balanced with lemon and lime flavours, red apple fruit intensity with spicy ginger and a stony minerality on the finish. This wine is beautifully poised. Sadly there was very little of it made, so try it on our wines dispensers if you can and hopefully we will still have it in stock.....

No Added Sulphites
Winemaker Rudiger Gretschel notes:
'The dry 2016 vintage saw our 5ha of old Chenin hardly giving us a crop. In a normal year we average between 6-10 tons out if this vineyard. In 2016 we got a mere 1,7 tons of the entire block. We picked the grapes rather late despite the dry year waiting for the sugar to pick up. The fruit tasted amazing with a very fresh acidity. Once we whole bunch pressed the grapes I was amazed again by the clear, fresh juice. For this reason we decided to not do an overnight settling and took the juice directly to 300l, 2nd fill barrel for natural ferment. We ended getting 3 x 300l barrels from 5ha of vineyard.
The must fermented in barrel in a cold room. After ferment we kept the wine in
the cold room for maturation, because I wanted to inhibit the secondary
fermentation. In January this year we racked it out of barrel under a blanket
of ‘dry ice’ and bottled it the next day without any filtration, or SO2.'
Savage Grace Red Willow Syrah 2017Regular price £33.95
Red Willow is where Syrah started in WA and the Syrah grown there exhibits its unique terroir, almost like the Crozes region of French Northern Rhône. The grapes are picked early to preserve its natural acidity and helped to give the wine a lifted finish of dark juicy fruit against bring and cured meat tones. 100% whole-cluster and aged 10 months in neutral French oak barrels. Native fermentation. Unfiltered.
