Autumn Treats - when they're gone, they're gone.

Autumn is definitely here and the leaves are starting to look very pretty on the trees as the nights start closing in. It must be time to start thinking about wooly jumpers, big coats and red wine.

Howard John Carignan 2014

Carignan is a grape that loves the sun, the hotter the better in fact, so Paarl in South Africa is perfect. This superb boutique wine truly is the "Big Daddy" as it is an homage to the winemaker's father and has been made with a real sense of integrity and honesty, no fining or additives have been used. This wine is elegant and packed with dark fruit flavour that lingers on the palate with a touch of savoury complexity on the finish.

A great wine which you might expect to pay well over twenty pounds for at one of our competitors, our price of just £15.99 is superb value. We are proud to say this is a unique parcel which Ake and Humphris have managed to discover for you.

Fantastic Fizz and Where to Find It

Cava may not be the coolest bottle to pop at a party, we know that everyone is all about the prosecco nowadays. That is exactly why we think it's time to revisit Spains most enduring Sparkling wine.

Mas Macia Gran Reserva Brut Nature is a fuller more generous style that the Cava you might remeber from the 90's. This has a crunchy apple skin freshness fleshed out by a creamy peachy mid palate and a toasty brioche note on the finish. 

At £14.99 with some online retailers Ake & Humphris price is just £9.99. Making this a perfect start to any dinner party, and a whole lot more sophisticated than it has any right to be.


Cheeky Chenin

Is it too soon to say the C-word ... no, not Christmas, Chenin Blanc of course. From the Carinus Family Vineyards Rooidraai is a supreme example of why South Africa has developed such a reputation for the quality of this underappreciated grape. Dry grown before natural fermentation and maturation in French Oak, this is a creamy and full white wine which could win over lovers of full-bodied reds.

This is another parcel that Ake & Humphris have managed to discover and which we feel represents amazing value. A exceptional wine made in tiny quantities which will not be around for long!

With a rich and full stone fruit palate, this is a complex and delicious wine perfect for a cosy night in. Treat yourself to something a bit special for £19.99 you know you deserve it. Grab a 6 box whilst they’re here with 10% off. It would be criminal to miss this.

Rioja to rock ya!

I don't know quite where Martin finds these and frankly, I find it's better not to ask, but I am very happy that he does.

Ernest Hemingway believed that Frederico Patternina was the greatest of all the Rioja's, now admittedly that was a while ago but he knew a thing or two. This is their Gran Reserva which means the best selection of grapes from only the finest vintage are given 24 months in oak and a further 36 months in bottle to fully mature and develop before the wine is finally released. 

With a wonderful smooth rich palate this is a Rioja lovers dream we have seen this wine cost upwards of £15 online and at just £12.99 AND 10% off when you buy any mixed six bottles of wine it is too god to miss!
