Kardos Dry Furmint, Hungary
What a find from this tiny, yet esteemed, family-owned winery in Tokaj, Hungary (the oldest classified wine region in Europe, c.1737). Specialists in the Furmint grape variety, this estate is steeped in history. Located in the crazy sounding village of Mád (regarded as Tokaj's most important and prestigious wine area), the vineyards have been in the family for centuries. The opportunity to build the Kardos winery only became possible after the Central and Eastern Europe revolution of 1989 allowed diversification. From humble beginnings of selling wines from their cellar door and to local bars, this boutique winery began to flourish under the directorship of the owner’s son, Gábor Jnr. who came on board full time in 2008.
A deliciously rich, waxy and textured wine, with aromas of gooseberries, greengages, quince, pear and lime. Fine and rounded on the palate with wonderful fresh and baked apple flavours and an orange peel note on the finish. Dry and beautifully crisp, complex and elegant. Perfect as an aperitif or try with seafood linguine, salads and cheese.
Grenache and Cinsault blend from the sunny Pays d'Oc. Fruit-forward and rounded, with surprising texture and concentration for a rose at this price point. We worked hard to find it! Strawberry and spice, with a lengthy finish. A great aperitif, but equally good for sunny lunches.
Percheron Chenin-Viognier White, Western Cape
One of our best selling white wines, with no surprise. Old vine Chenin imparts crisp apple acidity and vibrancy to the blend, whilst the Viognier brings texture, balance and deep ripe tropical fruits. South Africa is producing some great wines right now, and this is amazing value.
Uggiano Chianti Roccialta
Really easy drinking Chianti, without compromising on character. A splash of Merlot softens out the young Sangiovese, making it a perfect weeknight wine for pizza and pasta dishes. Cracking stuff and great value.
Percheron Shiraz Mouverdre, Western Cape
Percheron is a French breed of workhorse, and this is our "workhorse" red. It is a real stalwart and hugely popular. Medium bodied, full of red fruit flavours and oh so clean on the palate. Tremendous value.
False Bay Vineyards
False Bay "Whole Bunch"Cinsault Mourvedre Rose
Whole bunch Cinsault/Mouvedre Rose from South Africa's Coastal Region. Very French in style, showing great balance of spicy aromatic fruit and a lovely creamy texture. A steal at this price.
From vineyards at the foothills of the Andean mountains, cooler temperatures allow for slower, longer ripening in the grapes. Take the same time to enjoy the elegance, fruit, and classic ripe cherry and chocolate flavours of this affordable yet fabulous Malbec! Unoaked and juicy.
