Although we wouldn’t mind giving up on plentiful suppers during these hot days of the year, we certainly cannot refuse a glass of glorious wine. In fact, is there a better way of finishing a long, busy day than with a beautifully chilled glass of wine in your hand?

Domaine Sainte Lucie 'MIP' Premium Rosé 2015 Magnum

The Domaine Sainte Lucie Made in Provence (MIP) Premium Rosé 2015 is delicately pale pink in colour and packed full of berry fruit on the nose. Flavours of sour cherry, strawberry, pear drops are intermixed with hints of herbs and earth. The texture here is satiny and luscious yet the overall effect is buoyant and infectiously juicy. Outstanding on all accounts, and just what you're looking for when you need a dry rosé for a hot summer...

£37.95 per magnum

 

Fox Creek Fox and Hounds 2003 Magnum

92 Points - Stuart McCloskey

Appears bright cherry red with a darker plum coloured core. The nose shows liquorice and dark fruits, toasty oak with a chocolatey rum and raisin aroma with blackcurrant and stewed plum flavours.

£22.50 per bottle

 

Kumeu Village Chardonnay 2016

18 Points - Raymond Chan

Bright straw-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full and gently up-front and voluminous with aromas of yellow stonefruits in an amalgam with white peaches and a subtle mealy and nutty overlay. Medium-full bodied, the palate is stylishly up-front with flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits and peaches with nutty and savoury mineral interest. The mouthfeel has fruit richness lending rounded textures and plenty of presence. The wine flows positively along a fine phenolic line leading to a lingering dry finish of stonefruits, nuts and mealy detail. This is an elegantly rich, up-front Chardonnay with ripe stonefruit, nutty and mealy flavours with good weight, a rounded mouthfeel and a dry finish. Match with poultry, pork and veal over the next 3+ years.

Clos des Lunes Lune
d'Argent 2015

Neal Martin

It has quite a forward, rich, generous bouquet with subtle honeysuckle and apricot notes merging with the apply aromas. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, a little grassiness at first, gently opening up to a gooseberry, nettle and green apple-flavored finish. This might be my pick of Olivier Bernard's three 2015 offerings under the Clos des Lunes label and it comes highly recommended.

£16.50 per bottle

Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Blanc 2015

Possessing fabulous notes of citrus rind, white flowers and distinct minerality, this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, bright acidity and a mineral-laced finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. An absolute steel to boot!

Jeb Dunnuck (erobertparker.com)
“I continue to be blown away by the quality coming from Domaine de la Bila Haut, which is run with the Chapoutier team. They’ve continued to grow these Roussillon releases, and even at the entry-level price point, the quality is stunning. The straight Les Vignes de Bila Haut is a no-brainer purchase.”

£9.75 per bottle

 

Domaine de Bila Haut Occultum Lapidem 2014

Jeb Dunnuck (erobertparker.com)

Another terrific vintage for this cuvee. Syrah and Grenache-dominated, ruby opaque color is followed by complex notes of garrigue, leather, plums and violets. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and layered, with a great texture, this fruit-forward, balanced Roussillon is already hard to resist, but will continue drinking nicely for 6-7 years.

£16.00 per bottle

Kaesler Stonehorse
Shiraz 2005

94 Points - Robert Parker

A good value in old vine Barossa Shiraz, the inky/ruby/purple-hued 2005 Shiraz Stonehorse (100% Shiraz from 15- to 45-year-old vines aged in used oak for 15 months) exhibits an explosive nose of sweet black cherries, cassis, tar, spice box, and licorice. This full-bodied, sexy, up-front effort is impossible to resist.

& The Award Winning

 

Deep Woods Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Wine Show of Western Australia 2017 - Gold
National Wine Show of Australia 2017- Gold
Perth Royal Wine Awards 2017 - Silver
Royal Hobart Wine Show 2017 - Silver

The palate displays flavours of summer plums and dark berries with notes of sweet spice and dark chocolate from the use of both new and seasoned French Oak. It is medium-bodied wine with fine, elegant tannin and persistent length. A true representation of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.

£17.95 per bottle

 
 

Watershed Senses Shiraz 2014

2017 Mundus Vini Grand International Wine Award - Gold
2017 Wine Show of Western Australia - Silver
2017 Cowra Wine Show - Silver
2016 Wine Show of Western Australia - Silver

95 Points – James Halliday 2018 Australian Wine Companion

Night-harvested, 4 days cold soak, small batch-fermented for up to 2 weeks, matured for 8 months in American (27% new), Hungarian (7.5% new) and French (5.5% new) oak. Deep colour; a very complex shiraz, in terms of flavour and structure; oak plays a significant role in the mocha/dark chocolate/spice components, but the purple and black fruits are more than a match, assisted by tannins in creating the stimulating texture on the back-palate and finish.

£17.95 per bottle

 

Watershed Senses Chardonnay 2016

2017 Wine Show of Western Australia - Gold
2017 Perth Royal Wine Show - Silver

96 Points – James Halliday Wine Companion 2016

Small batch-fermented in French oak (18.5% new) on lees for 7 months with light battonage. The combination of high quality cool grown grapes and sensitive winemaking has produced this lovely chardonnay, the first release of a chardonnay in the Senses range. Delicacy teams with intensity (an oxymoron if ever there was one), grapefruit, white peach and nectarine the drivers, not the oak.

A MUST
WITH SEAFOOD

 

Weingut Keller Riesling
Von der Fels 2015

Stephan Reinhardt (erobertparker.com) 

 The 2015 Riesling Von Der Fels has been sourced from up to 30-year-old vines for two years, so it is based on ten-year older vines than in recent times to better express the chalky minerality. The wine opens pure, fresh and with crushed stone and bright, perfectly-ripe fruit aromas. Intense and lush on the palate, but well-organized and mineral, this Riesling from Keller's best vineyards reveals ripe and intense, yet still clear and fresh fruit flavors. It is a very elegant, vital and pretty expressive Riesling with tension, finesse and grip. The 2015 juiciness and intensity is as present as the the pronounced acidity, the remarkable concentration and lingering salinity. This is an excellent terroir Riesling.

£21.95 per bottle

 

Tiberio
Pecorino 2015

93+ Points - Vinous (Antonio Galloni) 

Pale bright straw-green. High-pitched aromas of cantaloupe and hazelnut complement sage, rosemary and green fig. Bright and juicy in the mouth, with a strong impression of extract enlivening the flavors of orange zest, botanical herbs and fresh fruit salad. This is the best Pecorino wine ever made by Tiberio, and it’s also the best, most varietally accurate Pecorino wine of the year.

£12.95 per bottle

Lagar de Cervera
Albariño 2016

Superb wine of great depth and freshness. The 2016 vintage stands out for its aromatic intensity and zingy citrus flavours. Some additional lees contact enhanced the density and complexity of the wine on the mid-palate whilst maintaining its freshness.

James Suckling
This has a wonderful acid intensity with stone and lemon undertones. A linear and tight white. So focused that it is almost unforgiving. But the fruit density and purity brings it all together. Drink now.

£13.50 per bottle

 

Domaines Schlumberger Riesling
Les Princes Abbes 2014

Pale yellow with green hues. Aromas of citrus fruits, lemon and a fine touch of spice and ginger which follow to the palate. This wine is lively, medium-bodied with an attractive underlying mineral touch.

£17.00 per bottle

 

FAR TOO GOOD
TO SHARE

 

Giesen The Fuder Matthews Lane Sauvignon Blanc 2012

97 Points - Stuart McCloskey

By far, one of my all-time favourite Kiwi Sauvignon Blancs simply as this wine ‘stylistically’ has no equal. The fruit is hand picked from Matthews Lane vineyard ensuring each parcel of fruit is in perfect condition. The juice rests on yeast lees for 11 months in new 1,000 litre German oak fuder barrels, which adds an extraordinary level of complexity. The enormous size of the fuder translates to less wine contact with the barrel surface compared to smaller, more commonly used barrels. In addition, the fuder staves are thicker which means the temperature of ferment tends to be warmer resulting in the fruit characters gaining greater depth and complexity.

£35.00 per bottle

 

Dry River Viognier 2014

95 Points - Bob Campbell

Rich, ripe Viognier with orange blossom, apricot, wildflowers and Oriental spices. Big, concentrated and powerful wine with mouth-filling flavours and an almost chewy texture. High alcohol of 14.5% heightens the sense of voluptuousness and adds warmth to the lengthy finish. The wine really evolved as it sat in the glass and will certainly benefit from decanting.

£36.50 per bottle

 

Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia 2015

On the nose it expresses intense and refined notes of mature citrus fruit, exotic fruit and white flowers. On the palate it is fleshy and juicy with a vibrant, crystalline fruitiness which perfectly reflects the sunny, but not excessively hot year. The long lingering fruity finish leaves the palate clean and fresh. 

£39.95 per bottle

Eva Fricke Lorcher Krone Riesling QbA Trocken 2015

94 Points - Stephen Reinhardt (erobertparker.com)

The 2015 Rheingau Riesling Trocken Lorcher Krone has a very pure and chalky/smoky bouquet with lemon fruit. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, concentrated, round, piquant and well-structured Riesling with a silky texture, but great finesse. The finish is very pure, compact and very salty. This is great dry Riesling from Lorch.

£40.50 per bottle

 

Montes Purple Angel Colchagua 2014

98 Points - James Suckling

This has a perfect nose of blackberry, tar, black pepper, thyme, cloves and rose petal. Full body and firm and very silky and polished tannins. The finish goes on for minutes. Best ever. Great class. 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot. Drink in 2019 but so gorgeous now.

£36.95 per bottle

Château Pedesclaux 2005

94+ Points - Stuart McCloskey

This is quintessential Pauillac and the best Pedesclaux I have sampled from the estate in over 10 years. The palate is full-bodied with copious sweet ripe black fruit, marked by soft tannins and wonderful harmony and tension. This is undoubtedly an outstanding Pedesclaux which could get better?

£39.25 per bottle

 

Greenock Creek Apricot Block Shiraz 2005

95 Points - Jay Miller (erobertparker.com)

The 2005 Apricot Block Shiraz received the same upbringing as the Alice’s and is a similar glass-coating, opaque purple. An enticing perfume of cedar, scorched earth, pepper, violets, bacon, and blueberry leaps from the glass. A bit more restrained (a mere 15.0% alcohol) than its siblings, it is nevertheless a silky, layered, intensely flavored Shiraz with gobs of fruit and a 60-second finish. It should provide much pleasure from 2012 to 2025.

£42.50 per bottle

Hobbs of Barossa Ranges Gregor Shiraz 2003

96 Points - Robert Parker

Made from yields of two tons of fruit per acre, and aged two years in both new and old French oak, the 2003 Shiraz Gregor (from 16-year-old vines) possesses a roasted/scorched earth character as some of the fruit is dried a la Amarone. Rich and full-bodied, with a broodingly dense, concentrated style, an inky/blue/purple color, fabulous length as well as intensity, and riveting fruit.

£44.95 per bottle

 

REDS TO SERVE ON 
THE COOLER SIDE

 

Airlie Bank Cabernet Franc 2016

Notes of Campari, red liquorice and boysenberry. On the palate – bright, fresh and bursting with juvenile charm.

£15.50 per bottle

 

Greystone Pinot Noir 2014

96+ Points Stuart McCloskey

When I taste a wine like this, my only wish is that every customer could experience how a very good Pinot Noir can be made without the enormous price tag. This is a seductive, handpicked offering from Greystone with thrilling aromatics which soar from the glass – Dark red berries and plums. The palate dazzles with complexities with remarkable fruit intensity, crunchy red fruits with pure silky tannins. Phenolic ripeness is spot on and often a problem with some Pinot Noirs. Lots of pedigree and class on show and a wine that could comfortably sell for £35+ per bottle. What a gorgeous wine.

Serving suggestion for those hot days – place in iced water for ten minutes (no more) which does not deter from the wines deeply satisfying crescendo of aromas and flavours. My sort of Rosé!

£19.50 per bottle

 

Anthill Farms Campbell Ranch Pinot Noir 2014

97+ - Stuart McCloskey

We thought the 2013 was something special, however the 2014 could well go down as one of the greatest ‘young’ Pinot Noirs to ever pass our lips. The ’14 is blessed with an incredibly intense, powerful nose - the perfume is extraordinary, almost exotic. Although young, the palate is showing beautiful structure, filigree tannins and is utterly sensuous. This is an irresistible Campbell Ranch, a little fatter and more generous than the previous two vintages. Effortless, mercurial and brilliant.

£39.95 per bottle

Hentley Farm The Marl Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

94 Points - Stuart McCloskey

Utterly delicious and drinks beautifully now. Crème de Cassis, blackcurrant and a touch of pencil shavings on the nose. Medium bodied with a gorgeous smorgasbord of crisp red and black fruits. The tannins are silky and the finish is long - Such wonderful purity.

£17.00 per bottle

 

Gramercy Cellars Lower East Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Wine Enthusiast

There's no mistaking the variety, with plentiful aromas of fresh herb and cherry alongside vanilla and light barrel accents. The dark fruit flavors are supple with a mesmerizing texture and an exquisite balance that extends through the coffee-filled finish. The attention to detail throughout is impressive, especially for a wine at this price.

£32.95 per bottle

Gramercy Cellars The Third Man Grenache 2013

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

Tasted out of bottle, the 2013 The Third Man, which incorporates 19% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, sports a semi-translucent ruby color as well as perfumed notes of black cherry liqueur, raspberries, potpourri and dried flowers. Supple, elegant and seamless, with no hard edges, sweet, sweet tannin and medium to full-bodied richness, this fabulous Grenache would be a dead ringer for a top Chateauneuf du Pape in a blind tasting. It’s the best vintage of this cuvee to date and will have 10-15 years of overall longevity.

£36.50 per bottle

 

SUMMER FIZZ

 

Champagne Salmon 100% Meunier Rosé Brut NV

Steven Spurrier for Decanter Magazine

With 10ha touching the Montagne de Reims planted 85% to Pinot Meunier, the Salmon family shows justifiable pride in Champagne’s ‘third’ variety: red summer fruits, floral and spicy notes with zest and suppleness to finish clean and dry, thanks to a low 7g/l dosage.

£33.95 per bottle

 

Egly Ouriet Brut Rosé Grand Cru NV

Sourced from the Grand Cru terroirs of Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzena and crafted in a similar approach to the Grand Cru Tradition with the exception of the inclusion of Egly’s incredibly rare Coteaux Champenois rouge. Sadly, most rosé Champagnes rarely live up to their price tag however, this is utterly electrifying and simply one of the greatest rosés available today. Magnificent on its own, however, this is one rosé Champagne that has enough weight and tension to partner food.

£66.95 per bottle

 

Ayala Brut Majeur NV

94 Points - Stuart McCloskey

A beautiful floral nose – A little Jasmine evolves with some aeration. Very delicate, refined with a lovely sense of harmony (perhaps the femininity comes from Caroline Latrive’s deft touch – She certainly captures the house style beautifully). This is a beautifully delineated Champagne with a purity and length not often found at this price. Lots of tension - Really excellent. What's more, by Champagne standards this represents truly outstanding value.

£24.95 per bottle

 
 

PERFECT PINK

There are some good Rosé wines on the market and then there is Deep Woods Rosé, which is consistently Australia’s finest. Both the 2015 & 2016 vintages have received 96 points from James Halliday and scooped-up every conceivable domestic trophy imaginable. The 2017 vintage (for rosé) was undoubtedly the best in Deep Woods Estate’s history, winning a string of awards including the most prestigious Australian trophies at the Perth Royal Wine Show and Margaret River Wine Show. Both wines are blended with varying percentages of Tempranillo and Shiraz with a small proportion of Grenache to produce two wines of great character, delicacy and complexity.

 

Deep Woods Estate Rosé 2017

Margaret River Wine Show 2017: Gold Medal

95 Points - James Halliday

The pale but bright hue opens the door for this blend of shiraz and tempranillo, chiefly tank-fermented, a small portion fermented in barrel. Its fragrant bouquet is attractive enough, but doesn't quite prepare you for the intensity and drive that spears through to the finish and aftertaste. Wild strawberry and hints of forest make this a very special rose.

China Wine & Spirits Awards: Best Value 2018
Perth Royal Wine Awards: Gold 2017
Margaret River Wine Show 2017: Gold Medal
James Halliday's Best Australian Red Wines Under $25 

95 Points - James Halliday

Light pink with a shimmer of salmon. Produced from a blend of shiraz and tempranillo, and has a proud history of high quality predecessors. The length of the wine is prodigious, offering strawberry, red cherry and raspberry, cut and shaped by persistent acidity.
