Here's a round up of what's being said about our wines this month...

As an independent wine merchant we work closely with our producers and feel an enormous sense of pride when they're recognised for the quality in their wines. Here's a round up of our wines being talked about in the press, including recent award winners and highly commended bottles. 

Genetie Bourgogne Blanc 'Illumine':

“Sourced from a 12ha plot in Bussiers in the Southern Maconnais. Plenty of concentration from vines averaging more than 40 years of age. Brisk acidity balances the richness and concentration of ripe fruit with a lick of 10% oak maturation, adding finish."

91 Points.

Andy Howard MW, Decanter Magazine. 


Kaiken Aventura Malbec Valle de Canota:

“Fresh nose of charming dark cherry and herbal nuances. Lovely concentration of dark fruit and mineral flavours on the palate. Vibrant, with firm tannins and a long finish."

95 Points & Gold Medal.

Decanter World Wine Awards. 


Coterie by Wildeberg Cinsault Rosé:

“Pale coral hue, flinty notes and aromas of black cherry with savoury undertones. Dry and crisp on the palate."

90 Points.

Decanter World Wine Awards 

Highly Commended. Wine Merchant Top 100


Garzon Single Vineyard Albarino:

“Expressive on the nose, showing aromas of perfumed limes and lemons, with notes of peaches, apple skin and ripe pineapple. Saline palate, textural, with a mineral finish."

95 Points & Gold Medal.

Decanter World Wine Awards


Torre del Falasco Amarone della Valpolicella:

“Very traditional and classic aromas of mushrooms, tobacco leaves, black olives, chocolate and maraschino cherry. Warm with well managed tannins and a long elegant finish."

95 Points & Gold Medal.

Decanter World Wine Awards


Casa Ferreirinha 'Vinha Grande' Douro Tinto:

"Thyme and smoky wood aromas, a creamy style to the palate with toffee and a citrus twist of refreshment."

95 Points & Gold Medal.
