Description

The Cabriole Sauvignon Blanc from the Idun winery is an elegant yet expressive Sauvignon from the cool Bot River region of South Africa.  Subtle tropical fruit is beautifully balanced with saline touches and minerality on both the nose and palate, which builds to show an impressive richness whilst never losing freshness and expertly poised acidity.  This terroir driven wine nods more to the classic old world Sauvignon Blanc from Europe than it does the modern Kiwi style, but there is enough character to satisfy lovers of both styles – very impressive.


Idun is a small, boutique winery run by a French-Danish family originating from Mauritius. They produce excellent varietals which are well-balanced, concentrated, and elegant. They produce mightily impressive, French-inspired wines which you would no doubt pay a lot more for if the grapes were from France.

NV Brut 204, Champagne Lete Vautrain, Marne

Champagne Blend

The grapes for the Lete Vautrain Brut 204 are harvested by hand and sorted prior to fermentation at a cool temperature, and ageing on lees takes place for a minimum of 36 months.  The wine shows a lovely deep golden hue in the glass with apple, peach and apricot fruit complemented by dried fruits and classic biscuity notes.  A well balanced, complex and rounded Champagne that is the perfect aperitif style.

CRemant de Jura Cuvee Bethanie.JPG

NV Cremant Du Jura ‘Cuvee Bethanie’, Fruitiere Vinicole Arbois

Chardonnay

One of our best selling sparkling wines, this stunning Cremant is given added complexity by the addition of 2cl of Vin Jaune at dosage.  The result adds a rich, nutty and savoury edge to what is otherwise traditional method 100% Chardonnay, which tasted blind could pass for an aged Champagne.  Not everyone's cup of tea but certainly popular and curious enough to keep customers coming back for more!

2022 Sancerre Croq Caillotte, Domaine Emile Balland

Sauvignon Blanc

The Sancerre Croq Caillotte is a classic example of how it pays dividends to seek out the smaller growers, as this is a top notch, characterful Sancerre showing citrus and apple fruit, perfectly poised minerality and mouth-watering acidity.  Classy and offers terrific value for money.

Comtes de Champagne Taittinger.JPG

2011 Comtes de Champagne, Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs, Taittinger

Chardonnay

Taittinger's Comtes de Champagne is a rare treat and only made in the finest vintages from 100% Chardonnay from 5 of the greatest Grand Cru vineyards in Champagne.  2011 was a particularly good vintage for Chardonnay, marked by its early ripening and drought conditions which forced the vines to delve deep in search of water for growth.
