Barbera d'Asti 'La Bricca' Rinaldi, Piedmont 2009

While Barolo may be the king of Piedmont, its little brother, Barbera, cavorts around the region like a playboy prince, constantly reinventing itself and turning up in a variety of unexpected disguises. It’s a fiendishly difficult grape to pin down and we have tasted it in all it forms, from the very dark and brooding, to the light and ethereal. This one clearly looks up to its big brother, displaying similar flavour characteristics of warm plum skins, loose tea, leather, kirsch, tomato leaves and cherry wood. Where Barolo has muscle and power, this capers more nimbly, with its naturally high acidity carrying those delicious autumnal flavours within a lighter and more forgiving frame. 14% alc.

Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

James Halliday 2015 Wine Companion – 94 points: "4% cabernet franc and maturation for 18 months in new and used French oak has brought out maximum varietal expression in its regional context, where mint and mulberry are often part of the mix; it is medium-bodied, with firm cabernet tannins, the oak largely a bystander."

Langhe Nebbiolo "Il Crutin" Manzone, Monforte d'Alba 2013

Il Crutin is made with 100% Nebbiolo sourced from vines of the Castelletto and Gramolere vineyards in Monforte d’Alba. Because the winery has no ‘minor’ vineyards to use for an entry-level, approachable nebbiolo, the family decided to declassify parts of the Castelletto and Gremolere vineyard to make il Crutin. Il Crutin (‘small cellar’ in Piedmontese dialect) is an old house located on the Gremolere hill: hand-carved in the rock in the 1800’s, purchased by Giovanni Manzone in 2000. Dark plums, coffee beans and aniseed. Cranberries with a bit of leather and a long dry finish, with a berry tinted finish.

Yantra Tenuta Sette Cieli 2014

"Yantra is a Cabernet / Merlot blend.

Surprisingly mature and expressive nose - dried currants, stewing berries with soft leather and wild herbs. Plush palate. Juicy blackcurrants with blackberries and juniper berries, dried cranberries and some tobacco. Vivacious and ready to drink now.

Barbera d'Alba 'Vigna Pozzo' Renato Corino 2014

We've managed this year to get one whole barrel! Only ten are made. Somtimes we get none, such is the demand for this delicious and great value Piemontese wine. A barrel equates to 25 cases. Pozzo, meaning water well, is an excellently sited special cru in La Morra planted with 60 year old vines. It ages deliciously. When young you would be best decanting. You can expect stewed plums, espresso, roses, pine; it's plush and smooth with lots of fruit. You can age it for ten years or more and it's as it best between 4 and 10 years.

Goedhart Family Bel' Villa Vineyard Syrah 2011

Black olives, plums, violets and wet granite on the nose, with a savoury whisper of cured peppered beef. The palate manages to be dark and bright all at once. Intense plum and blueberry fruit, black olive tapenade and crushed peppercorns all beaten with leather and cured meat. Perfumed notes of purple flowers, cloves and cinnamon. The texture is silky and balanced perfectly with the classic structure. This is a wine with resonance. It hums like a pulsar orbiting the centre of a black hole.

Keermont Estate Red 2012

Stunning Bordeaux blend. One of the Cape's best. "Pure class" - Neal Martin, tweet, April 2016. The 2012 is fabulous. It's so fine, with gentle sweetness, yet good grip. It develops classy cedary, tobacco aromas over an hour or two of being open. "This is a game changing portfolio of wines. Superstardom awaits this modest, young man of wine." - Matthew Jukes, MoneyWeek, 21 November 2014 Decant it to get the best from it, allowing the flavours to develop. It will be a great wine to have laid down. This wine exudes complex aromas of ripe cherry, wild berries, a touch of cedar and tobacco, and dusty 'fynbos. The palate has an array of ripe berries, cherry sherbet, crushed herbs and spices. Elegant but firm tannin affords the wine a long dry succulent finish. Drink 2014-2030.

Petrichor has an amazing aroma of black olives, herbs, graphite with a touch of game. It’s a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, a typical Chateauneuf du Pape blend. It’s got lovely flavours and complexity; a bit of soul going on.

From the oldest Grenache vineyard in South Africa which has only 12 rows of vines! It has floating aromas of wild strawberries, lavender and rose petals. A hint of supple leather and dried cranberries and bracken – on the nose its all about the perfume than the weight. The palate is very polished and weightless with cool mineral undertones, cloves and wild herbs. The finish is long and silky. A tip top old vine Grenache!

Tesselaarsdal Pinot Noir 2016

A wine with a more than unique history and story. The small village of Tesselaarsdal in the Overberg, 24km North East of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley is named for East India Company settler Johannes Tesselar. On his death in 1810, he bestowed the land to his freed slaves and owner/winemaker Berene herself is a descendant on one of those very slaves. If you look closely at the label, you can make out 2 people walking across the mountain. This is Berene and her Grandmother.

Casal Santa Maria Ramisco, Colares 2006 - 50cl

This is one for the wine geeks out there. Glorious, frankly quite mad Portuguese red from 'the most ridiculous wine region in the World'. Think vineyards not more than 300m from the Atlantic ocean, in the sand dunes, on the westernmost tip of Continental Europe. No vine should survive here, but somehow a small number of Ramisco (red) and Malvasia de Colares (white) do, and they produce some insanely brilliant wines.

Clos du Clocher, Pomerol 2011

Truly gorgeous Pomerol from a producer next to Trotanoy, Vieux Chateau Certan and La Fleur Petrus who has stepped up their quality and is now making wines of very high quality but it's still available at a very fair price. Gorgeous ripe aromas, cassis, plums and chocolate and smart wine-soaked oak, open knit, generous and classy but not too much; full and smooth and mouth-filling on the palate. This is divine wine that is very much to be enjoyed and drunk now. Of course, you can cellar it too, for 5 to 10 more years, but there is so much to enjoy now and in the next few years. Made from 77.5% Merlot / 22.5% Cabernet franc. 14.3% alc.

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2013

Indaco 2013 is from Tenuta Sette Cieli, an up and coming producer on the next hillside to the famous Sassicaia. It is a blend of the Bordeaux varieties. They are just out of the Bolgheri zone, on the Tuscan coast, South of Livorno, but if Bolgheri was re-drawn, they would almost certainly be within it. It is higher altitude than all but the highest of Sassicaia’s original vineyard, so the style tends to be a bit fresher than some of the more typical Bolgheri wines. 2013 is an important vintage for Sette Cieli as it was the one when the current owner took over the reins from his mother and took the wines in a new direction with a new winemaker . They are a producer to look out in the future. They share the viticulture team with Ornellaia.

Renato Corino Barolo Arborina 2011

"Impeccable Barolo from Renato Corino." - Renato Corino. We second that. It's quite superb. Delicious now with super flavours and complexity. “I loved this wine so much the other night with some pasta and tomato sauce with basil. It was so very very good to drink. So rarely do you get Barolo that has such charm, with warmth, and depth, and delicious flavours when young, yet retains that integrity that a Barolo purist would like to see, that will see it through the next decade or two. Both write-ups from Galloni and Larner get the essence of this wine - “beguiling but plenty of tension..impeccable Barolo”… “expressive and broad with an open and genuine quality that distinguishes it from its peers” - Robin Davis, Founder, SWIG

An unvintaged ‘assemblage’ composed of casks from 2016 (47%), 2015 (44%), 2013 (5%) & 2012 (4%), with fruit exclusively sourced from the mighty Hoffman Dallwitz vineyard, where the oldest vines are planted prior to 1912. Yes, 1912! 6155 bottles made. A note from winemaker Fraser: "Our sixth rendition offers a similar relaxed disposition to its predecessors, with ripe fruits and dried herbs foiled by it’s soft earthen belly and silken texture. It’s conveniently approachable now yet offers the structure and stuffing to develop further in the years to come."
