New Arrivals keep on coming.............

New Arrivals keep on coming.............

Spring has certainly begun..... how do we know?
Well the clear sign for us is that new bottles keep popping up onto our shelves.
We mentioned some new wines a few weeks ago, but there are more we want to tell you about, so we are highlighting four this week and will continue to do so in the coming weeks.

Salamandre Blanc, A wine that we all thoroughly enjoyed when we tried it. It's 100% Grenache blanc. A great and gentle skin contact aka Orange wine which drinks like a white; 10 days on skins. Remember those strawberry and kiwi
Snapple drinks from back in the day? This wine will bring back memories of that drink, well it sure did for us. Floral notes and flavours of summer fruits and just a little bit of grip. Simply delicious.

Saint-Cyrgues' vineyards are located near the village of St-Gilles, along the southern slopes of the Costières de Nîmes . The domain is owned and run along organic lines by Jean-Pierre Lefaud and son Loic.

Riesling Venture is a dry Riesling showing refreshing lime zest and chalky mineral notes. So quaffable, it'll be gone before you know it.

We love Riesling here. The variety of styles of wine this grape can produce is fantastic. Something for all occasions and moods. This “Riesling Venture”  is fun, approachable and a great introduction to Riesling. This is a new project from 2 friends -  Teresa Breuer and Marcus Lunden (both of which have their own highly regarded wineries). They’ve come together to produce a
wine that reflect the Rieslings of the Rheinghau region in Germany.

Camandula is a field blend of Mencía, Mouraton, Grao Negro, Garnacha Tintorera, Bastardo, Godello, Dona Blanca, Palomino: 60% Sousón coming from some of the highest vineyards in Galicia at 600-850 metres above sea level.

Wines are matured in large neutral oak and bottled without fining or filtration. The resulting wines is vibrant and fresh, with delicious crunchy blue fruit character that goes down so nicely.

Peixes is the name of the project that brings us the wine Camandula. A wine made by Jesús Olivares and Curro Bareño, two-thirds of the talented Fedellos de Couto trio. Through explorations of their region the pair discovered old
vineyard sites around the town Viana do Bolo. These are some of the highest vineyards in Galicia at 600-850 metres above sea level.


Chablis Vent d'Ange is made by one of the Maestros of Chablis, Thomas Pico, the winemaker of Domaine Pattes Loup (translates as wolf’s paws) never leaves us disappointed. Quite the opposite in fact. This wine is pure magic. We were stopped in our tracks as it showed such gorgeous fresh quince and star fruit character. It maintains that wonderful backbone of acidity but with a balancing weight of body on the palate. A true treat that is for sure. And if that has you salivating, his Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux 2018 is just sublime.

Thomas Pico spent his childhood in a small village in Chablis, Courgis. Surrounded by a winemaker father and
grandfather, he quickly inherited a passion for the profession.  The organic
conversion of his vines began in 2004 and was completed in 2009. He looks for full ripeness harvesting later than most, ferments and ages in a variety of vessels and sizes (egg-shaped concrete, oak, stainless steel) allowing long élevage on lees to retain tension, texture and perfect balance. Low doses of SO2 are only added at racking and pre-bottling
