winning cellar, it's a delightfully fresh, intense flavoured
Pedra do Cribo Albariňo 2016
Rias Baixas, Spain 13.5% abv
If you haven't tried this exciting white, imagine the freshness
of Sancerre with the aromatics of Viognier, plus the minerality of
fine Chablis, and you'll be close. Pedra do Cribo is slowly
fermented then aged on its lees (the sediment) for 18 months to
develop richness and complexity.
Stanlake Park Regatta
Twyford, Berkshire 12.5% abv

a few miles from the Vineyard. A crisp dry wine with a soft
spicy nose, floral hints and a clean herbaceous finish. Try it with
pasta, fish and chicken dishes, grilled veggies, creamy sauces,
cheese platters, appetisers or just by itself.

Côtes de Provence, France 12.5% abv
A Provençal classic from the home of France's finest quality
rosés. Saint Tropez has been famous for the style since the 19th
century, yet only one cellar may proudly bear the glitterati town's
name on its label. Characterful, elegant and stylish. Serve with
ocean fresh favourites such as crab or lobster, pan seared tuna or
grilled king prawns. It's also great with white meats or creamy
Hacienda da Lluna Moscatel Rosado 2017
Valencia, Spain 5% abv
You can just imagine how the heat of the Spanish summer might
drive a winemaker to create this ultimate thirst quencher. Hacienda
de Lluna Moscatel Rosado is crisp, fresh and pretty, with the
sweetness of a ripe grape. Gently sparkling and only 5% ABV, too.
Serve well chilled - a delight on its own at any time.

very good vintage and this wine has lovely intensity of silky fruit
with floral aromas. A treat solo or with chicken or cold meats.
Uvaris Rioja 2017
Rioja, Spain 14% abv
This young Rioja is a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes
giving an intense cherry coloured wine with ripe summer fruit
aromas. It's deliciously silky and easy to drink. It's suitable for
all sorts of occasions. Just pop the cork and enjoy
Drakenskloof Pinotage 2018
Western Cape,South Africa 14.5% abv
Rich damson flavours with exotic notes of smoke, earth, coffee
bean and liquorice. No other grape produces flavours quite like
Pinotage! Smooth enough to be enjoyed on its own, but even
better with rich food such as chorizo and butter bean casserole or
Chante Clair 2017
Vin de France 13% abv
Made with a blend of grapes from across the Languedoc region.
It's a rich aromatic wine, full of red and black berry fruit
flavours. Supple, smooth and spicy, it's a great all rounder and
goes well with virtually everything!

Malbec and Argentina - a marriage made in heaven for wine
lovers. No other country makes such a seductive style, and few
cellars excel so consistently as Santa Julia. Their Malbec is
a smooth, easy going and fruit filled red made for everyday
enjoyment right now. Enjoy with simple week day suppers.
