  • Our favourite wine this year hands down. This Pinot Noir combines the best of both worlds with a style that has the fruit of Burgundy and the suppleness of New Zealand. Bob Campbell's review says it all! Newly released Blank Canvas Pinot Noir 2015 has been awarded an incredible 97 Points from Master of Wine Bob Campbell. The score propels this wine to a number one ranking out of 112 tasted Marlborough Pinot Noir wines from the 2015 vintage. “From a low-yielding vineyard in the Waihopai Valley with clay-based soils and 17 year-old vines. 50% whole-bunches in the fermentation. Evocatively perfumed wine with savoury, fresh herb, violet, red rose, cherry and berry flavours supported by classy spicy oak. Dense and seamless with an impressively lengthy finish. Delicious wine.” Bob Campbell MW – ‘The Real Review’, (20th February 2018) –Drink 2018 to 2023
  • Castro Ventosa has been owned and run by the Perez family since 1752 and has never changed hands. They have a hands-on approach in the vineyard and a hands off approach in the winery which result in vibrant and exciting wines.

  • A subtle, stylish and elegant wine that has crisp orchard fruit and a fine citrus backbone. Dry, fresh and aromatic, its Albarino has it should be. When Rias Baixas officially attained appellation status in 1988, there were only 30 wineries there and little of the wine was exported. Now it is home to 6 times as many producers, in large driven by the insatiable thirst for Albarino. Bodegas Zarate have been the pioneering force behind high quality Albarino.

  • The perfect white wine for anyone who is looking for an alternative to the typical Sauvignon, not to mention that it is organic and vegan friendly! Dry, crisp, fresh zingy white wine Organic Spanish white. This lovely organic white is made using a blend of two grapes. The main grape is Sauvignon Blanc, which is crisp, fresh and aromatic, and there is some Viognier blended in here. Viognier is a fleshy, aromatic grape with peachy flavours and it makes this wine extra appealing. This is a glass of yumminess!      
  • A medium bodied fruity red made from two grapes, Tempranillo which is the principal grape in Rioja and Syrah which is the principal grape in Rhone. Its fun, fruity and easy going and best of all, its Organic! A good alternative for those who like fruity Malbecs.      
  • Medium bodied Sangiovese (the principle grape in Chianti), with dark cherry fruit and perfectly ripe plums. Cantina dei Colli Ripani is on the Adriatic coast in the Marche region. The first vintage here was 1977 and they have embraced both forward thinking strategies as well respect for the land and their they now use organic methods and renewable energy from solar panels at the winery.

  • An indigineous grape from Italy's largest wine producing region, Nerello Mascalese from Sicily is medium bodied, juicy and grippy. Great for BBQs! It has firm acidity and cherry red fruit. Nerello Mascalese is one of the lesser known red grapes from Sicily and its most suited for those who like to drink the lighter styles of red wine such as Pinot Noirs. The Italian style tannins also mean that its perfect with pork and salamis. A great wine for those who like to explore the grapes off the beaten track.      
  • Casarena is a winery located in Mendoza and a part of a new wave of Argentinean wineries who focus on micro climates. We love this style as it captures all the great things about Malbec, the ripe red fruit, rich body and some nutty French oak to add depth and structure. A wine which delivers serious bang for buck. Highly recommended.      
  • Comprised of four grapes hard to remember and even harder to pronounce, this red is a brilliant little number. Neither too dry nor too full bodied combined with flavours of plums and blackberries with hints of mocha and caramel, make this an all-round winner. Casa Lima Santos having been making wine in the Lisboa region since the 19th century. In 1990 the estate had a massive facelift with the injection of improved agricultural practices, a modernisation of its productive structure and replanting of the vines.

  • Chapoutier is long established as one of Rhone's top wine producers, in fact if you are lucky enough, you could fly into Lyon and drive an hour south to the region. A serious bucket list place. Hermitage hill is a Unesco world heritage site and you can walk to the top. The town is sleepy enough but the food offering combined with cellar doors makes it a Mecca for French wine lovers. Meysonniers is brilliant value and we love it so much so that its one of our wines of the year so far. Full bodied, elegant and fruity, definitely open it for 1-2 hours before drinking.      
  • A blend of 2 of the Rhone's most important grapes, Grenache and Syrah. A big, rich and full-bodied red, delivering the best of what you expect from the Cotes du Rhone. Spicy, ripe and generous plums and blackberries. Chapoutier has made biodynamic principles the foundation of their vineyard philosophises and they believe that the quality of their raw materials comes from the vineyards, not the winery. Since 1991, they have made biodynamics the heart of their philosophy.

  • Malbec is almost exclusively planted here, with vines ranging from 20-90 years old. The wines have bright red fruit, and a unique purity not often seen in Cahors. Combel La Serre has been ECOCERT-certified organic since 2013, though farmed without chemicals for several decades up to that point--the family long suspected that the death a family member from severe Parkinson’s disease was directly tied to a lifetime of exposure to the conventional chemicals so commonly by French farmers in the mid-20th century.  
  • Corbrieres Cuvee Classique is a blend of old vine Carignan, Grenache and Mourvedre and is a winner of a wine! Medium-bodied, with flavours of redcurrants, plums, herbs, leather and peppery notes. A perfect food wine, serve with roast leg of lamb.

  • Predominantly old vine Grenache and Syrah with a splash of younger planted Mourvedre, the 3 classic grapes of the Southern Rhone valley. A seductive, full bodied, ripe and spicy red wine. The story begins in 1990 when Eric Ughetto took over the family vineyards located in Gigondas. He was joined by Sophie in the late 90s and the two of them decided to make wine with their own grapes. The Area "La Roubine" was created in 2000 with its first vintage.

  • A Chablis by which to judge all Chablis. Produced in limited quantities and to a seriously high quality, Thomas Pico?s Chablis is one of purity, tension and precision. In 2004, Thomas Pico returned to work at his family estate in Chablis after several years of working in Nuits St George. ?Pattes Loup?, which translates ?wolf?s paws?, is the name of the parcel that his grandfather gave him that year. This was the year when his grandfather died, and Thomas remembers him saying: ?don?t make the same mistakes I did in the vineyard.? Within 3 years later, he shifted production to organics.

  • Made from the little known Savagnin, a white grape found exclusively in the region Jura in Eastern France. You would be forgiven for thinking that it?s a Chablis Grand Cru, with its minerality, spice and tension all supported by bright citrus favours.

Their commitment is also evident in the cellar where they produce balanced, mineral-driven wines that can only come from the Jura.

  • Dry and unoaked, with intense citrus flavours, Granny Smith apples and spicy undertones. Perfect alternative for Sauvignon Blanc drinkers. Gruner Veltliner is Austria’s most important indigenous grape and up until the 1990s it was relatively unheard of. Gruner Veltliner has many charms, one of them being the consistency of the quality and the flavour profile; it always delivers what it says on the tin. Ferdinand Mayr is a musician turned winemaker and his wines are singing with flavour and intensity.    
  • A cracker of a prosecco. Dry, fruity, fresh and crisp with lovely fun bubbles. Loads of depth and unlike most of the proseccos available on the market today. Drusian Prosecco Colfondo is made from the Glera grape and the term Colfondo refers to the production method which is a second fermentation in the bottle on the lees. This method gives the wine a unique flavour and body. A wine worth seeking out.

One of our favourite wines to drink! Multi-award winning and with a cult following, Claudio Fenocchio is charging forward with his vision for the art for marrying tradition with the contemporary in his organically produced wines.  
  • 100% Nebbiolo, and produced in Piedmont, you would be forgiven for mistaking this for Barolo. Serious quality and depth of flavour.

  • This is a fresh fruit cocktail in a glass. Think tart apples, freshly squeezed lime juice and ripe apricots. It's perfect for those who like the Sauvignon or Riesling style and would like to try something new. This has been a firm favourite for us since we first tasted it. An aromatic and fruity Albarino from Spain, the Hare and the Tortoise wine is as fun flirtatious as the label. Fresh, crisp and only 12.5% alcohol.  
  • La Raia made us fall back in love with Gavi all over again. A lovely ripe and fleshy wine with Golden Delicious apples, zesty citrus fruit, hints of peach and minerality. Bright refreshing, and an interesting alternative to Chablis. Cortese is Piedmont's indigenous white grape, and produces arguably its best white wine, Gavi. Gavi is a region to the Eastern side of the region and in order to call your wine Gavi, it must be made exclusively from Cortese.
