  • Pedro Ximenéz, Gutiérrez Colosía, El Puerto de Santa María, 17% vol, 37.5cl

    Pedro Ximenéz, Gutiérrez Colosía, El Puerto de Santa María, 17% vol, 37.5cl

    SH02

    The Gutiérrez Colosía Bodegas are located in Puerto de Santa María and date back to 1838.

     

    The architecture of the warehouses is known as Nave Cathedral (cathedral-like). These arched buildings, of significant height, help expose the wines to the influence of the local climate.

     

    A rich and concentrated PX. Ageing in the relatively cooler climate of El Puerto de Santa María brings a touch of balancing finesse to this rich wine.

  • “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    CH24

    Named after Léonie Duchêne, one of the founders of the company, “Cuvée Léonie” is reserved for independent wine merchants and the world’s finest restaurants – we have listed it for several years and it has been our House Champagne since 2011.

     

    The blend is 50% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 25% Chardonnay with reserve wine accounting for a significant proportion of the total (25%). Extended ageing in the cellar (3 years) adds depth and complexity.

     

    “All the elements are there: the buttery brioche aromas with top floral notes, the depth of flavours and the finish. It’s the way that it’s all presented that sets it apart. ‘There’s a driving blast of fine mousse, a powerfully zesty mid-palate, and it all develops into a long dry finish”

  • “Sweet Agnes” Riesling 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 10.5% vol, 37.5cl

    “Sweet Agnes” Riesling 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 10.5% vol, 37.5cl

    NZW13

    Pioneers of Nelson winemaking, Hermann and Agnes Seifried planted their first vineyards in 1973. Today Seifried Estate is one of New Zealand’s leading family owned wineries.

     

    Named after Agnes Seifried, “Sweet Agnes” is 100% Riesling. The grapes were hand selected at the peak of ripeness with a large portion of the fruit shrivelled and raisined, caused by natural dehydration. The grapes were then gently pressed to release a very concentrated intensely flavoured juice. The grapes were picked, pressed and fermented in batches as grapes were selected during successive passes through the vineyard.

     

    Sweet Agnes Riesling has bright pure concentrated fruit characters with citrus peel and floral elements. Palate entry is full and luscious with gorgeous zesty acidity as well as hints of honey defining the palate and balancing beautifully with the concentration and natural sweetness.

  • Monastrell Dulce 2015, Bodegas Castaño, Yecla, 16% vol, 50cl

    Monastrell Dulce 2015, Bodegas Castaño, Yecla, 16% vol, 50cl

    SPW08

    Based in Yecla, in the hills inland of Alicante in south-eastern Spain, Bodegas Castaño is known for its huge efforts to promote one of Spain’s native varieties, Monastrell (Mourvèdre). The Castaño family owns over 410 hectares of vineyards 80% of which are planted with Monastrell.

     

    The grapes for this wine are grown in vineyards at an altitude of 750m above sea level, from vines with an average age of just under 40 years.

     

    After crushing, a long, cool maceration took place at 17°C to extract colour, aromas and the soft, sweet Monastrell tannins. Fermentation was stopped once the must reached 5-7% alcohol by volume by adding grape spirit. This ensured that residual sugar was left in the wine giving the lingering, sweet finish as well as the higher alcohol of a fortified wine. After fermentation, the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for eight months before bottling.

     

    Intense ruby colour, with notes of raisin, honey and dried fig along with plum jam aromas. The wine is deliciously fresh and sweet, with a rounded mouthfeel and extraordinary mouthwatering acidity that balances the sweetness of the persistent finish.

    Thiénot Brut N.V., 12.5% vol, 37.5cl

    CH20

    “Founded in 1985, Champagne Thiénot is the new kid on the champagne block and something of a trade secret. I came across the Brut NV the other day and was immediately smitten. A blend of 45% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier, it is light, delicate and fresh with hints of apple and quince – the perfect apéritif.”
