 Wines of the moment

White. Some Young Punks Monsters Attack Riesling  ~ 2014, Australia normally £16 now only £8

A bonkers comic book label with space ships and laser beams certainly makes this wine stand out but what really makes you pay attention is the wine. All mineral notes and a big smack of lime fresh acidity this is Aussie Riesling at its best. Brilliant with Thai food.

Rose. Paarl Heights Rose 2015, South Africa normally £6.50 now only £3.99

Delicate and fresh with lively red fruit flavours and it’s completely and utterly, ridiculously, very, very cheap.

White. Mount Mary Triolet 2009, Australia normally £40 now only £25

An utterly, utterly outstanding white Bordeaux blend from one of the very, very best producers in Australia. Yes it’s still a little pricey but what a lot of flavour, enjoy with oysters.

White. Aux Quatre Vents Blanc 2014, France normally £9.99 now only £5.99

I loved this wine last year when it was a tenner and at this price I am doing little cartwheels of joy, I have to be careful having another glass or I may start body popping.

Red. Beatnik Malbec 2015 ~ Australia normally £7.99 now only £4.99

Everyone seems to love Malbec these days and the Argentinian variety has usurped Aussie Shiraz as the go to big and rich red so what have the Aussies done about it? Well if you can’t beat em, join em. This luscious, hearty Malbec shows what happens when you have beautifully sun-kissed fruit and squeeze as much as possible in to a bottle. Have this with a big slab of steak.

Red. Adelina Shiraz 2012 ~ Australia normally £20 now only £10

An almost insane shiraz but stopped from being exiled to the lunatic asylum by some really engaging softness, warmth and spice. A far smarter style of Shiraz than you’d expect from OZ

Red. Manatura Espera Carmenere 2013 ~ Chile normally £8.99 now only £5.99

Mocha, blackcurrants, plum skins and a lovely velvety smooth texture. A delicious expression of Chile’s national grape.




A Little Change To Opening Hours
