Alta Alella ‘Opus’ Cava de Paraje Calificado 2014     

€49        

Our favourite producer of sparkling wines in Spain, Alta Alella produce Cava on a whole other level. Very fine bubbles, white peach and orchard fruit palate and a lightly nutty finish.  The fantastic presentation is guaranteed to wow!

John & Mike Favre Petite Arvine, Valais, Switzerland 2018

€33

For something a little different, but seriously delicious, this will impress the wine lover in your life! One of the very few Swiss wines to make it to our shores, it starts off ripe and tropical, but across the palate it becomes salty, mineral and tangy. Unique, and definitely worth trying.

Birgit Eichinger Heiligenstein Riesling, Austria 2018

€45

As pure and fresh as an Alpine stream, this is one of the most effortlessly gorgeous wines in the shop. But behind that freshness is a remarkable concentration of flavour, all lime, grapefruit & pineapple, with a stunning, mineral finish. Stunning.

ArPePe Chiavennasca Rosso di Valtellina 2016

€32                                                    

A Nebbiolo that drinks like a Pinot. Light ruby colour, soft and fragrant on the nose -there’s that characteristic Nebbiolo hint of rose- with a wonderfully silky finish. Delicious.

Blankbottle Master of None, South Africa 2017                         

€29

This blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Pinot and Roussanne sounds like it shouldn’t work but it is a revelation. Pinot-esque in terms of weight, it is amazingly fresh and packed with fruit, but with an immensely satisfying savouriness on the finish. Guaranteed seduction wine.
