• Dafni Psarades, 2020, Lyrakakis Wines, Crete This wonderfully unique, vegan-friendly, Greek white wine is from a single area vineyard producing an ancient grape, rescued by the estate. Aromas of laurel, flowers and rosemary give in to savoury preserved lemons with a fresh, slightly saline finish.
  • Furleigh Estate is 85 acres of vineyard, lakes and grazing land surrounded by woodland. The area is teaming with wildlife; buzzards fly overhead; deer, pheasants and partridge roam the vineyard, while heron fish regularly from the lakes to which our resident geese return each Spring. This wine is a classic dry sparkling wine with a refined elegance. The colour is pale lemon straw with a steady stream of minute bubbles. It has floral aromas of apple blossom interlaced with ripe melon and Constance pear plus a delicate thread of minerality. On the palate the fine mousse marries citrus flavours of grapefruit and Sicilian lemon with a crystalline structure and zesty acidity. It has excellent poise and a persistent finish.  The autolytic character is subtle. 
  • Armas de Guerra is the oldest winery in Bierzo and one of the oldest wineries in Spain, established way back in 1879. It translates as "Weapons of War", alluding to their annual battle against the elements to keep their vineyards (which on average are 50-years-old) healthy and make the best wines possible.  Expect great lemon and lime freshness and a delicate, peach, melon and saffron finish from this wonderful Godello.
  • Arnold Holzer's classic and vibrant style of Gruner Veltliner from the clay soils of Wagram in Austria. Holzer took over the estate in 2010, aged just 23. Expect buckets of lemon zest, white pepper hints of fennel and rose, and great acidity with a slight Jasmine tea finish. 
  • Heartland Spice Trader Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon An easy-drinking but dark and delicious blend from Langhorne Creek. Heaps of blackcurrant leaf, juicy dark fruit and a touch of baking spice, simply ace!
  • Kotsifali PGI, 2018, Lyrarakis Wines, Crete £16.50 A fantastic, spicy Greek wine with bright fresh cherry notes, spice and balanced tannins. This wine is also vegan.
  • In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'. An intense and complex bouquet of ripe red fruits combined with hints of spice. A full-bodied wine with delicious flavours of Morello cherry, thyme and vanilla notes through to a smooth finish. Huge bang for buck!
  • Jean-Baptiste de Clock runs this estate (much older than the wine's modern label suggests) close to Mèze and makes very fine Picpoul.  This Picpoul de Pinet is clean, lemony, taut and very dry but with an underlying depth and richness.
  • Situated in Bué in the Sancerre region of the Loire Valley, the Millet family has been making wine for over six generations. Elegant, vibrant Sauvignon, notes of grapefruit and lemon, clean and crisp
  • six fresh whites
    This case of six fresh whites is great option for easy drinking white wines with attributes of fresh citrus, more mineral and grassy notes, to fragrant fruit led wines. Sit back and enjoy - these whites also pair really well with food.
  • This Tokaj Aszú offers interesting flavours of apricot puree, celery salt, raisins, honey, ginger, Asian spices and orange blossom. It's definitely a King of wines! This sweet white wine will continue to improve, but there's also no need to wait. Serve chilled and enjoy on its own or paired with a fresh fruit dessert.
  • In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano, whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'.

This is a bone-dry Verdeca which shows a richness of aromatics: white flowers, crisp green apple and a hint of honey. This Verdeca is full flavoured, with a creamy texture and a long and intense finish.
