  • Picaro means 'rogue' or 'rascal'. I have always called it the young lad, as they also have 'El Recio' (the middle aged man) which is Matsu's idea for a reserva wine and the Gran Reserva, 'El Viejo' (old man just in case you didn't know). Bodegas Matsu is situated in the Toro region, right beside the Rueda region (known for the famous Verdejos). Toro wines are predominantly made of Tinta de Toro (tempranillo in this area of Spain) and are well known to be a mouthful of strength and personality due to its poor soil and hot summers. These vines in particular are 90 years old and are cultivated using the biodynamic techniques. Although the more conventional wines of this region are quite sharp, Matsu's wine range has achieved smoothness and elegance. Additionally, the clever thinking behind the labels means that they cater to a wide audience. I would recommend this red any day of the week.
  • We felt this was the most appropriate name for this case as you will be the juror of these 12 bottles of wine. With that in mind we made a 'case' on this one that we think you will enjoy and scrutinize each every single one of them with a delightful outcome. In this case you will find 5 whites, 1 bubbly rosé and 6 delish reds. We rest our case!   Whites Quinta de Bons Ventos Lisboa - Delightful and easy to drink , made from a blend of native Portuguese grape varieties. The vineyards are located in the Lisbon area. Due to its location close to the coast, the alcohol percentage is quite low. Fruity and aromatic, a true crowd pleaser and a summer hit. Goes well with light dishes. Merinas Verdejo Organic - Lovely Organic from Castilla de La Mancha is an easy going, fruit forward wine. Generous flavours of citrus, peach, pear, lychee with a hint of jasmine, orange blossom and fennel. Fruity, bright and lively. Goes down very well on its own and pairs nicely with fish, chicken, vegetarian dishes and curry. Willowglen Gewürztraminer Riesling - Two of our favourite white grapes Gewürztraminer (80%) and Riesling (20%) make a delightful pairing in this Australian wine.

Les Anges Sauvignon Blanc - Another one that won’t disappoint. This is a Val de Loire dry white. In Sancerre Kingdom this is an entry level Sauvignon Blanc that doesn't over promised but over delivers. Elegant and refreshing with a good burst of fruit and a touch of minerality. Bright, fresh yellow color. Flowery on the palate, fresh and delicate, fruity with a smooth finish. Produced thinking on sustainability it's a local wine for local people that got it's foot out of the region due to it's simplicity and quality La Jara Frizzante Rosé - A totally irresistible semi-sparkling Italian rosé from one of our favourite Prosecco producers, La Jara, but in this case they use a little bit of the red grape, Raboso, to give the wine its lovely pale coral colour. Dry on the palate and bursting with fresh strawberry notes reined in by the pithy bite of pink grapefruit. At 10.5% this is the wine to drink in the park with socially distanced friends, or with lunch in the garden before you’re really meant to be getting stuck into the vino! Bodegas Matsu El Picaro - The name El Picaro translates to The Rogue, and Matsu is the Japanese word meaning to wait, referencing the balance of attitude and patience that goes into making this wine. Fruit is hand harvested from a selection of 90-year-old vineyards in Toro (Spain) that are cultivated using biodynamic techniques. It has an intense aroma in which one can find blackberry, blueberry compote, cocoa and toasted almond characters. It is succulent and supple, and displays excellent fruit intensity, wonderfully supported by silky texture and fine tannins. The wine is fleshy and generous and will be a crowd pleaser. Colossal reserva tinto - "Colossal" is defined by something gigantic in place and time. This red from Lisbon has an intense ruby color and presents itself with a great concentration in the nose. Extremely rich aroma with predominance of red ripe fruits and some floral notes, well integrated with notes of spices coming from the ageing in French and American oak barrels. In the mouth it shows great complexity with notes of plums and blackberries. The finish is rich and elegant. Chaminé Tinto Alentejo - Another Portuguese red but this time from down south. Stunning red with no oak (not that it was needed). There are plenty of chocolate overtones to this spicy red, which features flavors of dark plum, boysenberry and dried blackberry.

In the glass, this wine shimmers in a deep ruby red color with cherry red highlights. Shiraz offers dark plums, mulberries and liquorice with lots of concentration, depth and velvety tannins. The Grenache creates a wonderfully juicy feeling with raspberries, blueberries and floral notes. Both of these grape varieties also give this Australian red wine a slightly white-peppery character, which makes this wine particularly interesting. The Mourvedre gives the Stump Jump GSM lovely aromas of red fruits with a hint of dried herbs as well as fine, chalky tannins that last into the long, delicious aftertaste. Col Di Sasso Castello Banfi - One of the best known and appreciated Banfi labels in the world, Col di Sasso, which translates to "Stony Hill", is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese cultivated on the most rocky and impervious slopes of the Banfi estate in Montalcino. The perfect marriage between these two grapes gives birth to a youthful yet concentrated and extremely fruity red wine. Great place to stay in Tuscany if you get a chance.  
  • This quality wine has classic Marlborough aromas of citrus and limes with elderflower and grapefruit notes. The palate is concentrated with lemon zest, stonefruit and floral flavours filling the mouth. The wine finishes crisp, clean and dry. Perfect as an aperitif or with seafood, chicken, Asian dishes and salads.
  • Adega de Penalva wines are delicious everyday examples of one of Portugal’s most intriguing appellations — the Dão. Perched above the Dão river itself as it snakes through its granite valleys, the Adega de Penalva is one of the leading cooperatives in the area, boasting around a thousand member growers. It’s important to note, though, that the average holding per member amounts to barely over a hectare—a figure that reminds us how tenaciously much of rural Portugal clings to its old ways. (On that note, all fruit destined for the ‘Indigena’ bottlings is hand-harvested.) Since its founding in the 1960s, the Adega has been collecting its members’ grapes and producing clean, characterful wines with a minimum of fuss that showcase real regional typicity while remaining extremely attractively priced. Adega de Penalva Indigena Dao Tinto is made with 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), and 30% Jaen (Mencía). Hand-harvested, fully destemmed and aged in a combination of stainless steel and concrete tank. Aromas of leather and blueberries lead to a palate full of dark fruits with cherry and raspberry notes. Pairs well with beef and lamb.
  • Adeus is the same in Galician as it is Portuguese and means ''Goodbye''. It is also the title of a Galician poem done by one of the most famous poets of Galicia, Rosalia de Castro. One worth that stays in between the love for her land and a homage to a woman that means so much for the history of Galicia. The Ribeiro is 45 km inland from the Atlantic Ocean and is situated in the middle of Valleys that protects it from the Atlantic winds. With 3 Rivers crossing has excellent conditions to produce wine. An excellent pair to grilled octopus with white asparagus garnish, monkfish fillet with stewed spinach and shrimps in garlic sauce    
  • What a wonderfully crisp glass of white wine made from Sauvignon Blanc. The grape that you don't see much in Argentina but offers an excellent wine at the right height. Well, that is a must with this Aires Andinos Sauvignon Blanc, because the vineyards are at a very high altitude in Mendoza. This gives the vines a lot of cooling and that gives a unique taste to this white wine. The aires Andinos winery has invested a lot in recent years and we can taste that. The wines have become purer and riper and as a result have become intensely popular in Argentina. In the glass, this white Aires Andinos Sauvignon Blanc turns pale yellow with green hues. It smells of notes of freshly cut grass, citrus and of course some grapefruit. Just waltz with the glass and we also smell some green asparagus and bell pepper. In the mouth, this Sauvignon Blanc has a fresh feeling on the tongue with light acidity. Lots of fruitiness of apple, lime and grapefruit that lingers in the aftertaste.
  • This wine is lively, pleasant and fruity. Lovely citrus flavours on a fine, minerally background. Alain Geoffroy’s vineyard is located on Kimmeridgian limestone with 15-20 years old vines, that has made the mineral-driven wines of Chablis so famous. Making this a very serious wine for its price and a go-to white for summer lunches, big dinner parties, fish, seafood, goats cheese, crunchy salads and filling the wine rack. Nothing little about this Petit-Chablis and without the price of a Grand Cru.
  • Black currants, ripe cherries and a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied and Fruity wine, but with focus, no fuss. Extra praise for the lack of the frequently administered overdose of fake wood
  • The Pinot Grigio grapes from this wine come from the Veneto (Pavia region, near Milan) region of Italy, where the Pinot Grigio grape has been cultivated for more than a century. The wine shows apple and pear with hints of white peach and elderflower. Light and refreshing, a mouth-watering partner for salads and seafood, great in the summer.
  • Made in a Beaujolais style, with the carbonic maceration method.  This juicy ''Joven'' fresh fruited style of Rioja has zero oak influence as it ages in concrete tanks for 6 months. Farmed without any synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Arturo Blanco was once asked what the philosophy at Bodegas Artuke was and he simply replied 'we are farmers'. The approach here is 100% focused on interpreting the family's 32 plots which are split between the villages of Baños de Ebro and Ábalos in Rioja Alavesa. Biodynamic techniques are employed in the vineyards and Arturo and Kike are also busy recovering old, ignored plots of ancient vines. Vinification is aimed at expressing the characteristics of the vineyard and quality of fruit above all else. The restrained use of oak and inclination towards different types/sizes of barrel, plus an unwillingness to adhere to the subscribed regimes for classification means that Artuke are precluded from using Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva designations on their wines. This mouth-watering red wine takes a relatively deep chill which makes it a versatile pairing with all types of food: tuna, pretty much anything made with zucchini, fried chicken, gooey cheese sandwiches, pizza, etc…
  • Founded in 1919, Domaine Papagiannakos is located in the Attica region of Central Greece, just 18 miles from Athens. Today, the winery is run by the 3rd generation, Vassilis Papagiannakos, who has issued a new era of modern winemaking while still maintaining the family’s dedication to cultivating and preserving the region’s most famous indigenous grape, Savatiano. In addition the Domaine has plant Malagousia and Assyrtiko. The Assyrtiko vineyards are located in northeastern Attica at an altitude of 330 feet. The vineyard has a northeastern facing exposure. The vineyard is farmed without irrigation, resulting in low-yielding vines that produce grapes with rich, concentrated fruit flavors. The limestone soil and the unique microclimate of the region produces wine with a very clean and crisp profile with citrus and white flesh aromas.The acidity is very well integrated into the wine and gives the ability for long aging. With aging the wine develops a beautiful mineral character. The refreshing character of the wine makes it an ideal accompaniment for seafood, fish, white meat, and Mediterranean cuisine.
  • Atlantis Albariño is a white wine from the D.O Rías Baixas produced by the winery Maetierra. As it name suggests, this a monovarietal from the grape Albariño. The temperatures in the region are gentle. The abundance of rainfall, is however constant. Atlantis Albariño is located in the vineyards of Condado de Tea, very close to the river Miño. The soils are sandy with a granite base. Atlantis Albariño is a part of the Atlantis series produced by Vintae. The project, managed by the well know oenologist Raúl Acha, produces Atlantic wines from a very small selection of vineyards from different appellations of origins (D.O). Pair it with  clams, oysters and shellfish.
  • The Babich family hails from Croatia and first bought land in New Zealand in 1916.  The winery is now in its third generation.  Fruit for this wine comes from a variety of its estate-owned vineyards which are sustainable or organic.  Most of the juice for this wine is fermented in stainless steel with a small percentage in old oak. Crafted with food in mind-weighty, ripe, tropical fruit, flavoured style, rich and rounded. Pair it with veal, seafood (oysters) or a chicken dish.
  • ‘Laderas’ means hillside and this wine takes its name from the hillside vineyards on which the grapes are grown. The fruit is carefully selected from over 300 parcels that are situated on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria, in Rioja Alavesa. The average plot size is just 0.3 hectares and the average age of the vineyard is approximately 50 years, but some of the vines are significantly older, producing low yields of concentrated juice. The Gobelet trained vines are planted in limestone soils, resulting in elegant wines that are fresh, precise and age worthy due to the balancing acidity. The vines cultivated with respect for the environment, using minimal sprays of copper and sulphur when required. The fruit is hand-harvested in 15 kilogram boxes to preserve the quality. Badiola Tempranillo de Laderas Rioja shows excellent balance between fresh natural acidity, fruit concentration and firm, but fine-grained tannins. Pure and precise aromas of cherries and red berries are layered with herbal notes of thyme through to a textured palate.
  • Casa Ferreirinha, was acquired by Sogrape Vinhos in 1987, its wines are synonymous with time and art. This has happened since its foundation, in the 18th century, by the hand of Bernardo Ferreira, who saw the formula refined by his descendants, especially by his granddaughter Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, who affectionately became known as "Ferreirinha" or "Ferreirinha-da-Régua" for the people of that land. Through the hands of Dona Antónia, who twice widowed herself at the head of a large company, Ferreira consolidated itself admirably. Her entrepreneurial spirit taught her to foresee, decide, create, teach and love, making her a figure of great projection and charisma. Barca Velha is the result of the passion of Fernando Nicolau de Almeida (Casa Ferreirinha Head Winemaker in 1952), who envisioned a high quality Douro Red Wines made with the aging potential of Vintage Ports. The first harvest was 1952. Barca Velha is only released in exceptional years, current head winemaker Luis Sottomayor began his career at this house as an apprentice learning directly from Fernando Nicolau D'Almeida. ''2011 was an extraordinary year-one of the best ever in Douro-Intense and exceptional quality. When this wine was born, we soon realized that it would be destined for Barca-Velha”. But even so, it was necessary to pass the great test of time with distinction. In the barrels, first, and then in the bottle, it was followed and evaluated over nine years, until the final decision was made.
  • Bardos Romantica is a red wine from Ribera del Duero, produced by Bodegas Bardos, belonging to the Vintae Group, which are known to produce wines in twelve different Spanish regions, such as the Hacienda López from Haro. Made from 100% Tinta del País (Tempranillo). The grapes come from a rigorous selection of low yielding old vines located in the highlands of the central plateau in Onesimus Quintanilla (Valladolid). The grapes, once collected, are transported to the winery in boxes of 15 kilos and small trailers. Here a selection of bunches is made on tables. Subsequent fermentation and maceration is carried out in vats at a temperature of 28ªC for 3 or 4 weeks. Once fermented and macerated, Bardos Romantica undergoes a malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, with a weekly beating and strict control of each barrel. Finally, Bardos Romantica is aged for 14 months in barrels of one and two years in French oak, located in underground cellars where the temperature is maintained throughout the year at around 14ºC. Bardos Romantica is a soft and original wine. After all the technicalities all I can say is a great wine, enjoy it, share it!  
  • Bardos Verdejo is a wine made from 100% Verdejo from vineyards that are 20-25 years old, located in Rueda, at more than 700 metres of altitude on stony soils. The harvest is carried out at night, at temperatures below 15ºC. The fermentation is done with local yeasts at a controlled temperature and the wine rests on its lees for at least 4 months, gaining complexity and texture. On the nose, the intense aromas of fruit such as white peach combine with cut grass, citrus, balsamic and mineral notes. In the mouth it has a good volume and persistence, well integrated acidity and a characteristic aniseed aftertaste, typical of the grape. Really a high quality example of this native Spanish variety. Excellent with light bites, starters, salads and white fish. All of the wines by De Bardos are crafted by hand in a fully artisan manner.    
  • A quintessential California Zinfandel. Beringer has built a legacy crafting renowned wines from a prized collection of California vineyards, celebrating a remarkable winemaking tradition dating back to 1876 when the Napa winery was founded by Beringer brothers Frederick & Jacob. A Zin that definitely portrays some Classic California ripeness. Ripe blueberries, blackberries, plums, a hint of smoky and mineral characters and a touch perfumed (dried floral notes) on the nose. On the palate you’ll find that smoke and berry ripeness coming through, with a little tangy raspberry adding to a lengthy finish. Medium plus body with a silky mouthfeel, smooth light tannins and luscious acidity. I love Zins with a juicy bacon and smoked cheddar burger or with your favourite pizza. This one should not disappoint!
     
  • A wine that expresses the characteristics and grape varieties of the Vinho Verde region. It's a light and refreshing wine, for all occasions.
  • Weingut Birgit Eichinger was founded in 1992 by Birgit Eichinger and her husband Christian, who started out with roughly nine acres of vineyards shed from her parents' business, over time the vineyard area was expanded to 23 acres in the best traditional sites of Strass. This is a single-vineyard Grüner, from a vineyard whose loess (loose and sandy) soils and southward face are perfect for the cultivation of traditional Kamptal-style Grüner. The Birgit Eichinger Grüner Veltliner Strass Kamptal impresses with its elegantly dry taste. It was put on the bottle with only 1.8 grams of residual sugar. As one can of course expect with a wine, this Austrian naturally enchants with the finest balance in all dryness. Taste doesn't necessarily need sugar. On the palate, the texture of this light-footed white wine is wonderfully light. Due to the balanced fruit acidity, the Grüner Veltliner Rhinestone Kamptal flatters with velvety mouthfeel, without missing out on juicy liveliness. The finish comes with mineral notes of the soils dominated by loess soil and sandstone.
  • Black Rock is part of the Bronco Wine Company, which was formed in 1973 by Fred, Joseph and John Franzia. Since the start, they have been clear that the goal is to make wines for consumption, rather than for storage. At the same time, the quality must be as high as possible, at the lowest possible price. The name Bronco is a merger of brother and cousin after the brothers Fred and Joseph and their cousin John. Great aromas of red berries and fruit, with a touch of herbaceousness. Full-bodied, with healthy fruit tones, well-balanced tannins and a subtle hint of oak. Serve around 16-18 ° C as a perfect complement to grilled lamb chops, or to dishes on game or beef. Also nice for a cheese platter, with not too strong cheeses.

  • Master of none - Playing with words referring to themselves not being an expert in any one varietal or wine style hence the saying: “Jack of all trades, master of none”. Clever and humble, nonetheless, their wines are at the forefront not only of South Africa but in the world with the amazing wines they are producing. If you enjoy reds on the lighter end of the spectrum such as Pinot Noir or Gamay then Pieter's 'Master of None' will definitely be up your street! It comprises a blend of 5 different grape varieties from tiny vineyard plots across 6 distinct regions; 40% Grenache from Wellington, 30% Cinsault from sites in Darling and Stellenbosch, 8% Pinot Noir from Elgin and a further 8% Syrah from Swartland. Unusually, Pieter then tops up the blend with Voor Paardeberg Chenin Blanc, adding aromatic freshness to the finished wine.  It drinks like a top-class Beaujolais – super bright and juicy, bursting with wild strawberry, cherry and with an earthy, smoky undercurrent. Enjoy at room temperature or slightly chilled – perfect for summer drinking! “In 2004, a lady came to my house to buy wine. She asked for anything but Shiraz. “I don’t drink Shiraz”, were her exact words. I poured her a glass of wine. She loved it and bought 3 cases. It was a straight Shiraz. It’s a fact – we do judge the book by its cover.”
  • Moment of Silence is a South African wine made by superstar wine maker Pieter Walser. He buys in the fruit to make this blended wine of Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. It has been aged in old oak and it is a rich, powerful wine. Some of the fruit comes from vineyards which are over 50 years old.
    Stunning, all rounder, there is nothing you can fault in this wine. Aromas of candied lemon, cooked apple and mango with a core of minerality. Soft and voluptuous, it has a lovely ripeness and a fleshy, creamy mouthfeel, which leads to a perfect tangy freshness giving some zip to its otherwise mellow feel.
