  • Dr Loosen Extra Dry Riesling Sekt × 2

    “Very dry, sparkling Riesling from a maker often known to leave a little sugar in his wines. Not here though. Loads of fruit, searing acidity and with a slight lemon pith edge that helps keep everything nicely balanced. A little something for everyone here. Pop!”


  • Bon Courage Wine Estate Jacques Bruére Cap Classique Brut Reserve × 2

    “A lovely, easy-drinking, sunny sparkler made the way they do it in that area of France we're all so fond of. What's great about S.A. sparkling is you get the extra fruitiness from the sunshine (like p-secco) but still with that biscuity thing champagne has, cos it's made the same way. Bit of a bargain... and check out the age on it - impressive!”


  • Pazo de Señorans Albariño

    “So happy we were to have found this Albariño we celebrated with an impromptu pogoing session. Rich & honeyed with pineapple flavours and a salty twang. It's a ridiculously moreish wine. Pazo de Señorans = very safe hands. We want Anna, the winemaker, and to be our very best friend.”


  • Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc


  • Domaine Bernard Defaix Chablis

    “It's quite hard to convey how brilliant this Chablis is without the use of profanity. We had to have a little time out after tasting this. Your current favourite Chablis will end up in the bin... just try it. NO WORDS!”


  • Quinta da Pedra Alta Reserva Branco

    “If you like proper oaked whites you're going to love this. In fact, you'll probably love it even if you don't. Creamy, buttery, toasty, stone-fruity, honeyed, floral, elegant. This will get better and better over the next 5-8 years. Proper. Quality. Gear”


  • Domaine Jaeger-Defaix Rully Rouge

    “Big Burgundian pinot with all the old school trimmings thrown in. The smell of a farm on yonder hill, dark cherry, posh smoked bacon, coffee and pepper. A really giving and deliciously decadent wine.”


  • Poggio del Moro Toscana Rosso

    “Don't be fooled by the somewhat generic name, this is proper wine, made properly, offering proper value for money. Dark and red berries, baking spice, smooth tannins and refreshing acid. We defy anyone to not love this. Decant and leave for an hour to let it really shine. Stunning.”


  • Post House Missing Virgin

    “Smooth as a vaseline covered chinchilla wearing a velvet smoking jacket and Gucci loafers. How do they get Pinotage to taste this awesome? Well done Post House. Nailing it.”


  • Vida Estate Bikavér

    “This unsurpassed Bikavér (nicknamed Bulls Blood) is both fresh and rich all at once. Very pure flavours of blackberries, plums and a touch of dried mushroom are balanced by plenty of refreshing acidity and hints of leafy undergrowth. Let it breathe for an hour and you'll be richly rewarded. Hungary's signature red wine at its finest.”

MEET THE PRODUCERS

Vida Estate

Vida Wine estate comprises several vineyard sites across the many valleys and hills of Hungary’s Szekszárd region. Mostly known for producing wine from the Bikaver grape ( aka Bull’s Blood) the region has a climate and soil types that suit many different varieties. International grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc thrive alongside more local varieties like Kékfrankos (Blaufrankisch) and Kadarka. Péter Vida is most certainly amongst the best the region has to offer.

For over 30 years Péter, and now his family, have honed their skills in both farming and winemaking, creating some exceptional, award-winning wines. Practising organic farming but without certification, the Vida family passionately care for the environment around them.

Like their Bordeaux-based colleagues, the winemakers of this region have mastered the art of blending, creating wines that exceed the sum of their parts. By skillfully combining both local and international varieties, the best winemakers of Szekszárd do rival some of their most revered contemporaries across Europe.

In 2011 Vida Wine Estate won Hungary’s “Wine Producer of the Year” award which recognised their consistent excellence in oenology and viticulture. Not satisfied to sit on their laurels, they almost immediately undertook a program of extensive replanting, matching exactly the right rootstock, variety and canopy management methodology to the perfect site, based on extensive research into soil types, elevation and aspect.

The resulting wines have exceeded expectations and continue to win acclaim across Europe and beyond. If you’re looking for red wines with character, complexity, elegance and dangerous drinkability, look no further. The ultimate value-for-money alternative to Bordeaux? Without doubt.
