Description

We are massive fans of the wonderful Priorat red wines from Marco Abella.  The Clos Abella is particularly impressive with a strikingly perfumed bouquet, encompassing a myriad of red and dark fruits, fresh flowers, oak spices and liquorice. The complex palate shows black cherry, minerals, spice and chocolate and manages to be both subtle yet dense and harmonious with silky tannins, good balance, and a long, fresh finish.


The Marco Abella family have been producing wines in the Priorat region since the 15th century, with David Marco returning to the region in the early noughties to breath new life into his ancestral vineyards. Marco Abella owns seven plots located on seven different mountains in the village of Porrera in the renowned wine growing region of Priorat. Clos Abella highlights the terroir of Marco Abella. The influence of the vineyard slate and the particular climate create a true expression of the terroir combined with flavour complexity and mature, balanced fruit.

2021/22 Nostru Nerello Mascalese, Cortese, IGT Terre Siciliane

Nerello Mascalese

The Nostru range from Azienda Agricola Cortese offer terrific value, expressive wines made with grapes more commonly associated with the slopes of Mount Etna. The farming here is traditional and a nod to when organic production was a way of life rather than an informed decision.

Gamay Noir Canaille.JPG

2021 Gamay ‘Canaille’, Domaine Roussely

Gamay

Vincent Roussely is the fourth generation of the family to make wines at this beautiful 8 hectare vineyard site in the heart of Chenonceaux on the Cher River. Since 2007 he has farmed his vineyards by hand machine and horse and as a result has seen the health of his vineyards and grapes improve immeasurably, which naturally has a direct influence on the wines he produces.The Cellar is underground, dug into a tuffeau tunnel underneath the vines, and have been used for vinification of wine for over 250 years. New inox fermentation tanks have been put in place located in carved out recesses in the soft stone. Ferments are spontaneous and naturally very slow. 100% Gamay, 50% of which is whole bunch ferment and 50% destemmed from the younger vineyards around the village of Ange, south of the Cher river. Natural ferments with malolactic fermentation taking  place in stainless steel and bottled the summer after harvest.  Delightfully approachable and a pure pleasure to drink, this is a true terroir wine with a sense of place and vitality which make it equally appealing to savour or simply drink.

Charmes de Kirwan Magnum.JPG

2016 Les Charmes de Kirwan, Chateau Kirwan, AC Margaux

Bordeaux Blend

Les Charmes de Kirwan is the second wine of 3rd Growth Château Margaux and, like it's more grown up sybling, has benefitted from the massive investment program in both the winery and the vineyard in recent years.  It is generally made with the younger vines on the property but receives exactly the same care and attention as the wine.
