Aimery Grand Cuvée 1531 Crémant De Limoux
This Crémant de Limoux is sourced from the oldest sparkling wine region in the world which continues to produce these amazingly flavoursome, yet affordable sparkling wines. Medium-intense aromas of apple flesh, white melon rind and yellow flowers open the nose of this fresh and inviting sparkler. Made from 60% Chardonnay, 30% Chenin Blanc and 10% Mauzac, it’s brisk and lively, with final hints of green apple and lime leaf.
Amoise Chenin Blanc 2020
“The grapes were foot crushed in picking bins and left to soak for 18 hours to extract phenolics. Whole bunch pressed into old barrels. I made a vineyard starter (pied de cuve) with Chenin grapes that fermented naturally in the vineyard under the vines. I then inoculated my barrels with this tasty juice!
This is one of my longest fermenting wines (from harvest throughout winter!) and has tropical fruit notes of guava, mango with green apple and dry razor finish. The label is a tasting note of all the fruit notes that came up during fermentation: mango, peach, guava & granny smith apple”. Amy Farnsworth, Winemaker.

Astrolabe Chenin Blanc Sec 2021
Grown on the sunny clay slopes of Marlborough, this fresh Chenin reveals soft apple and honeysuckle flavours to enjoy year-round. Medium-bodied, with good acidity and a light spritziness, giving flavours of red apple, nectarine and honeysuckle. Delicious when youthful but has strong maturation potential.
Barouillet Bergerac Blanc Sec 2019
This wine with an atypical nose is not very marked by the aromas of the Sauvignon. It reveals notes toasted or even grilled. It also has floral notes, followed by fruits such as peach and citrus. The mouthfeel has a refreshing vivacity, reminding grapefruits and floral aromas such as honeysuckle and wisteria. The Bergerac Blanc Sec is a surprising union between freshness, fullness and aromas.

Decibel Giunta Crispy White 2020
An intriguing blend of 35% Chenin Blanc, 33% Viognier, 32% Chardonnay. Very light, pale straw colour. High notes of white stone fruit and hints of exquisite floral notes, which open up to broader spices and richer tones of ripe peach and red delicious apples. The palate is soft and lush up front but quickly evolves into a racy midpalate and bright finish. Lingering notes in the midpalate of brioche while the finish has a lasting spice and vibrancy.
Domaine Baumard Carte Turquoise Cremant de Loire NV
The mousse is elegant and refined and there is plenty of crisp acidity. The finish is long and dry with attractive biscuity notes.
This special old vine cuvée has depth and elegance – a belting alternative to Champagne and leagues ahead on quality over bottom-end fizz!
Domaine Vincent Carême Vouvray l’Ancestrale
Coming from old vines this is a well-balanced ‘zero dosage’ sparkling wine. This is an incredibly elegant wine that displays a distinct minerality and a very fine bead. There are no sulphites added to this wine at any stage in the winemaking process.
It is rich and complex and will perfectly compliment your moments of shared pleasure.

Maison Noire Chenin Blanc 2020
Elegant with a fresh palate of zesty grapefruit and crunchy apple and a soft buttery finish. This well rounded, full bodied Chenin boasts tantalizing notes of toffee, nougat and coriander. Delicately fine astringency and quartz mineral characters showing good complexity, a vague hint of sweetness, balanced acidity and a generously structured finish
Savage White Blend 2015
As the wine slowly opens it releases pretty aromas of lemon zest and white peach followed by dusty minerals, honeysuckle and white floral. On the palate this has a gorgeous texture which is beautifully balanced with remarkable focus. Overall, this is a gorgeous wine which should continue to evolve and gain complexities with just a bit of bottle age.

Testalonga Keep On Punching 2020
The Testalonga Keep On Punching is a pure wine, with a nice weight the wine has aromas of pear, apple and white peach plus potpourri and a touch of earthiness. On the palate, you’ll find a freshly opened box of Maldon sea salt, but it’s light and extremely flavourful and full of zipping and zing.
