A Mano Aleatico Di Puglia Passito 2010 (1x 75cl)

Deep ruby red in colour with perfumes of red rose petals and dried cherries giving way to a dark, black cherry and spice character on the palate with rounded tannins and a characteristic bitter twist. Sweet and luscious but not cloying, it has dried fruit and cinnamon perfumes on the finish.  

£15.28

Allegrini Giovanni  Recioto Classico 2012 (1x50cl)

The nose is immediately bursting with fruit, followed by fresh floral notes and pepper. After prolonged ageing, the wine proffers more evolved nuances of fruit preserved in alcohol and aromatic herbs. The bursting sweetness is kept in check by acidity and tannins, creating an approachable wine of great finesse. This wine, with its unique concentration, is named after the founder of the winery, Giovanni Allegrini, who elected this as his preferred wine.

Anselmi I Capitelli Igt half bottle 2015 (1x 35.5cl)

Barbi Vin Santo Doc half bottle 2011 (1x37.5cl)

Barroubio Muscat De Saint Jean De Minervois 2016 (1 x 75cl)

Domaine de Barroubio is located on a high plateau in the department of Hérault in the commune of Saint Jean de Minervois, a viticultural area famed for the Muscat grape. The vineyards, which lie at an altitude of 250m above sea level, face south for maximum sun exposure. Owner and winemaker Raymond Miquel has built a reputation for the fine quality of his Muscats.

This fortified sweet wine - vin doux naturel - is shimmering golden in the glass with an intense, complex nose of grapes, pear, rose petals and citrus. On the palate it is sweet, rich, powerful with a balancing zesty acidity on the long finish.

This intensely aromatic sweet wine should be served very cold and will pair well with strongly flavoured foods from pate to chocolate cake.

Capezzana Vin Santo Di Carmignano half bottle 2009 (1x 37.5cl)

The Capezzana estate, 24 kilometres north west of Florence, is owned by the Contini Bonacossi family. The younger generation is now firmly in charge of the estate's 100 hectares of vineyard, with daughter Benedetta Contini Bonacossi as winemaker. The wines and the olive oil have an elegance which marks this estate out from the crowd.

The grapes for the Vin Santo are grown on various vineyards on the 104 hectare estate. These vineyards face east, are around 150-200 metres above sea level and have schistous-clay soils. They are currently being converted to organic production.

The 2009 growing season was excellent. A mild spring was followed by a hot and sunny summer, allowing the grapes to reach optimum maturity. 

The grapes were dried on cane mats in a well ventilated loft until January 2010. The must was then fermented slowly in small oak and chestnut casks for at least four years. After ageing for five years in small chestnut and cherry casks, the wine remained in bottle for at least three months before release.

Intense golden yellow in colour with concentrated perfumes on the nose; notes of candied fruit, sweet almonds and fruit cake. Rich and intensely sweet on the palate, it has dried apricot and fig flavours which are balanced by a lovely touch of freshness. Very long and spicy on the finish.

Cazes Ambre Rivesaltes 2002 (1x37.5cl)

Domaine Cazes is situated in Rivesaltes in the Roussillon. With 220 hectares of vines planted, Domaine Cazes is the largest certified organic and biodynamic estate in France. It was founded in 1895 by Michel Cazes and the wines are made by the fourth generation of winemakers, headed up by Emmanuel Cazes. The family makes a range of interesting dry wines alongside the regional specialities, Vin Doux Naturels. They took the decision to move to organic and biodynamic viticulture in 1997. Based on their view that the natural environment needs natural preparation, they plough the soils and use only natural ingredients as treatments, arranging their work according to the lunar calendar.

Situated between the French Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, the Roussillon is the sunniest area of France, giving very ripe grapes, which are perfect for the production of the Vin Doux Naturel sweet wines. These are a speciality of the Rivesaltes area. The wine was made from the native Grenache Blanc variety, from vineyards on clay and limestone soils, covered by large wide pebbles that radiate the heat back onto the vines at night-time (these are the Galets Roulés that are famous in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape area to the north).

The white grapes were pressed before the fermentation started at 18°C. The wine was fortified using natural grape spirit, which caused the fermentation to stop and left a sweet wine with 16% alcohol, which is relatively light in alcohol for a fortified wine. The wine was then aged for seven years in old, large oak barrels. Over time, the wine gently oxidised, leading to a darker, amber colour (hence the name 'Ambré') as well as a richer, smooth palate and huge depth of flavour.

Deep amber in colour, with aromas strongly reminiscent of dried fruit and candied citrus fruit peel, it is delicious with desserts based on nuts, almonds or caramel.

£14.10

Cazes Cuvee Aime  Rivesaltes 1978 (1x 75cl)

Dark amber in colour, the 1978 has a fascinating mix of fig, dried apricots, cardamom and Seville oranges on the nose. The palate is still fresh, with the extreme finesse expected of great wines alongside a huge complexity of nutmeg, cinnamon and dried fruit flavours. A lingering sweetness accompanies the mellow, satisfying finish. Serve at 15degrees centigrade.

Chambers Rosewood Rutherglen Muscat Non Vintage (1x 37.5cl)

Complex orange peel, raisin and rose petal aromas give way to a warming, luscious palate with a rich texture and a hint of wood spice. This incredibly concentrated wine finishes slightly lean.

Chateau Lamothe-Guignard 2Eme Cru Classe 2007 Bottle (1x 75cl)

A touch of smokiness here, rather mineral, although with a little touch of rubber too. Broad and clean style, very fresh and a touch delicate. Nice citrussy, lemony flavour. Fleshy and sweet on the palate, fresh and lively, with a little vigour.

£25.20
