Alois Lageder Gewurztraminer 2015 (1x75cl)

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Alois Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis.

The vines, farmed biodynamically since 2004, enjoy a long and sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Alois’ wines are finely chiselled, with real definition and immense charm too.

This variety is one of the most popular white wines in Alto Adige. Alois Lageder's Gewürztraminer owes its character to a combination of grapes from two wine-growing areas: The warm sites around Termeno give the wine substance, body and sweetness, while the higher and cooler sites in Valle Isarco confer freshness, finesse and a fine aromatic structure. 

Gently aromatic with floral rose petal and geranium notes; the palate is racy, dry and light without any heavy Gewurz oiliness and the fruit clean, citrussy and perfumed.

This wine is suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.

Alois Lageder Moscato Giallo Vogelmeier 2015 (1x75cl)

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Alois Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis.

The vines, farmed biodynamically since 2004, enjoy a long and sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Alois’ wines are finely chiselled, with real definition and immense charm too.

The natural conditions of Alto Adige are expressed in fresh, precise wines and are particularly suited to Moscato Giallo. That is due, above all, to the location of the Vogelmaier vineyard in a small side valley on Lake Caldaro, ventilated by cool downslope winds at night. As a dry wine, the grape variety develops its typical aromatics, offering a pleasing contrast between sweet aroma and fresh finish. 

The grapes for this wine are crushed, pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Maturation lasts approximately 6 months on the lees. Fresh, clean aromas and flavours of elderflower, peaches and pears are dominant in this wine. It is medium-bodied with a dry, long lasting aftertaste.

Alois Lageder Pinot Bianco 2015 (6x 75cl)

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Alois Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis.

The vines, farmed biodynamically since 2004, enjoy a long and sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Alois’ wines are finely chiselled, with real definition and immense charm too.

Crisp, minerally wine with very fine aromas of apples, peaches and lemon. The palate is light and refreshing with lithe citrus and peach fruit cut by bright acidity and a streak of minerality. Very fresh and elegant in style.

This wine is suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.

Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomiti IGT 2015 (12x 75cl)

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Alois Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis.

The vines, farmed biodynamically since 2004, enjoy a long and sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Alois’ wines are finely chiselled, with real definition and immense charm too.

Pinot Grigio, also called Grauburgunder or Pinot Gris, is currently the most commonly cultivated white wine variety in Alto Adige. The sites subject to Mediterranean influences around Magrè and Salorno have predominantly chalky soils with a high sand and gravel content and are perfect for cultivating this grape variety from the noble Pinot family.

Brilliant straw yellow with a green shimmer. Quite pronounced and expressive aroma with flowery and somewhat spicy notes. Rich flavoured in the mouth with a slight smokiness at the back and a good, fresh finish.

These wines are suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.

Battle Of Bosworth Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (1x75cl)

Battle of Bosworth is one of the most exciting producers from the McLaren Vale, owing its fame to a series of outstanding single-vineyard wines made from estate-grown fruit. Owner, Joch Bosworth, is regarded as a brilliant organic farmer as well as a top class winemaker, and the Bosworth vineyards are among the most beautiful we have ever seen. Joch plays down his impeccable green credentials, arguing that he is doing nothing new: ‘A lot of what we do in the vineyard is simply old-fashioned grape growing; essentially, our vineyards are run as they would have been 50 years ago before synthetic pesticides and fertilizers became available.’

A pretty little flower called the soursob is Joch’s partner in crime to combat weeds. So important is the soursob that it features on the Battle of Bosworth labels, too.

The winemakers at Battle of Bosworth use traditional tried and tested wine making techniques year in and year out. They pick the Cabernet when it is flavour and sugar ripe, then crush it and ferment it in small open vessels. Fermentation finishes in barrel using mainly old oak (about 70%) and the balance in new mainly French hogsheads (300l) barrels. They then blend back some of the cordon cut, vine dried Cabernet to the wine just prior to bottling, a practise which has been undertaken since they began making the wine.

The Battle of Bosworth Cabernet has red/ black fruits on the nose, so think redcurrants blackberries and blackcurrants. There is a freshness which verges on mint. Overall the wine is lively and medium-bodied and very fresh. It has a structured but accessible palate and for those that have patience it will cellar very well, but if you haven’t got time for all that waiting, it will drink well now. Decanting before drinking would be a good idea to give the wine some air and give it time to release all of those aromas….

A pretty little flower called the soursob is Joch’s partner in crime to combat weeds. So important is the soursob that it features on the Battle of Bosworth labels, too.

"Fancy winemaking for our Bosworth Chardonnay; pressed straight to the very best French barrels from a variety of coopers, all of them expensive. The wine goes through a natural ferment; that is we don’t seed it with any commercial yeast but rely upon the natural yeast from the vineyard to start the process. The wine stays on high solids (sur lie) which helps to add subtle textural characters. High solids means we don’t rack off the old yeast cells but allow the wine to sit there in and amongst them."

The Battle of Bosworth Chardonnay has a complex nose of hazelnut, stonefruit skins and the merest hint of shotgun. The palate shows white stone fruit and some citrus characters. It is a medium-bodied full favoured delicious wine.

Battle Of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz 2016 (6x 75cl)

Battle of Bosworth is one of the most exciting producers from the McLaren Vale, owing its fame to a series of outstanding single-vineyard wines made from estate-grown fruit. Owner, Joch Bosworth, is regarded as a brilliant organic farmer as well as a top class winemaker, and the Bosworth vineyards are among the most beautiful we have ever seen. Joch plays down his impeccable green credentials, arguing that he is doing nothing new: ‘A lot of what we do in the vineyard is simply old-fashioned grape growing; essentially, our vineyards are run as they would have been 50 years ago before synthetic pesticides and fertilizers became available.’

A pretty little flower called the soursob is Joch’s partner in crime to combat weeds. So important is the soursob that it features on the Battle of Bosworth labels, too.

They have modelled the Puritan on the young Tempranillos that come out of Rioja in Spain. Puritan spends no time in oak and is bottled as soon as it has gone through malolactic fermentation, which occurs after the sugar to alcohol primary fermentation. They have shamelessly copied this model, except with ‘Puritan’ where the wine is bottled without any added preservatives, so it’s as fresh as a daisy, with nothing added. It is made from Shiraz.

The 2016 Puritan is bursting with life, as it should be, given it has barely time to turn around from being picked, fermented and then put immediately to bottle. There are soft plums on the nose and the palate is utterly delicious with black and red fruits, soft tannins and a wonderful finish. Drink alone and enjoy Puritan’s ‘joi de vivre’ or have with a juicy steak.

Battle Of Bosworth White Boar 2013 (1x 75cl)

Battle of Bosworth is one of the most exciting producers from the McLaren Vale, owing its fame to a series of outstanding single-vineyard wines made from estate-grown fruit. Owner, Joch Bosworth, is regarded as a brilliant organic farmer as well as a top class winemaker, and the Bosworth vineyards are among the most beautiful we have ever seen.

‘White Boar’ is their version of Amarone, a style of wine made in the Italian region of Valpolicella using 3 indigenous varieties which are picked and then dried on racks before being fermented.  The process has been adapted so that they cut the canes of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines to sever the water and nutrient supply from the vine, so that the leaves die and fall off and the fruit dries and concentrates on the vine. The grapes are picked after about 10-12 days and fermented slowly – the sugar content after this period of drying is pretty high. The wine is fermented to dryness however. They mature the wine in old larger format barrels and then bottle it. White Boar is a long lived wine.

White Boar has a nose of well-worn leather, dark fruit, dark chocolate, with a full soft palate and fine grained tannins.

In deference to the warm climate they pick the Pinot early and make it more like a Beaujolais than a Burgundy because they want to make a wine with soft tannins and gentle aromas on the strawberry end of the spectrum. To do this about 30% of the grapes are put through carbonic maceration. The grapes are hand-picked and allowed to ferment (without being crushed) in plastic bags in apple crates. The balance of the grapes are processed in a fairly standard red winemaking fashion; crushed, fermented, pressed off skins into (predominantly older) oak before blending back to the ‘cab mac’ component and bottling.

There are beautiful ripe red fruits on the nose – think plums and strawberries along with a light, alluring spice. The Bosworth Pinot Noir is a middle weight wine with red fruit running through the palate and framed within lovely tannins. This wine goes very well with cheeses, chicken dishes and charcuterie.

Bianchi `Famiglia Bianchi` Organic Malbec 2014 (1x75cl)

Intense red violet colour. Red fruit notes such as raspberries mix with prunes, spices, tobacco, chocolate and a hint of coffee on the nose. Full-bodied and smooth on the palate with rounded tannins. Notes of coffee and bitter chocolate from the oak ageing add complexity to the mature red fruit character on the long, well-balanced finish.

£15.00

Bisceglia Aglianico Del Vulture Gudarra 2012 (1x75cl)

Intense red and black fruit aromas and flavours with a hint of spice, showing fantastic balance between its tannic structure and fruit.

An intense, complex and persistent bouquet of apricot compote and spice with aromas of honey, beeswax, minerals and flint stone. Displaying a full body with an exceptional layered richness. With opening, the wine`s primary aromas of grape and floral touches develop into spice, aromatic herb, flinty and mineral notes, with hints of honey and nuts on the finish.
