Cà ed Balos take great care of their vineyards, using green manure techniques and pruning on young wood in order to maintain healthy and strong vines. Moscato grapes are picked and softly pressed as quickly as possible to preserve light floral aromas, then fermented at a controlled temperature in pressurised stainless steel tanks. The Asti method is similar therefore to making Prosecco: the carbon dioxide by-product of fermentation being captured in the pressurised tanks. At around 5% alcohol the wine is chilled to a very low temperature: the yeasts die and the fermentation stops, resulting in a sweet sparkling wine.
This wine has real character – all the juicy elements of Tempranillo. Cherry-red, purplish, brilliant colour with primary notes of fresh fruit, strawberries, raspberries, cherries and violets with clean mineral tones from the granite, this little natural wine is phenomenal value.
Incredibly easy to drink! Strawberries and cherries on the nose, with liquorice spice. You could serve this slightly chilled to accentuate these wonderful flavours. A lively organic blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese from the heart of the Piceno hills, in the Marche region.
Nero Di Troia is making a comeback and this is a great example! Not nearly as well known as Primitivo and Negroamaro, it is often found in blends. Aromas of fresh dark plum, cinnamon, exotic spices and tobacco. Firm yet gentle tannins add complexity and length.
The wine has a deep purple-red colour and an intense aroma of blackberries and blueberries. The palate is soft and silky, bursting with spicy flavors of black pepper, dark chocolate, wild berries and vanilla. The tannins are elegant yet persistent. The finish is long and lingering and offers a burst of wild cherries at the end. Made for meatballs.
The nose is complex with powerful aromas of blackberry and blueberry with, rose, rosemary, violets and floral notes as well as a hint of spice. The palate is nicely concentrated and with fine tannis.

Very complex.
Aussie winemaker Martin Cooper arrived at a Catholic monastery in upper Mosel valley via stints in Western Australia, Burgundy and the Finger Lakes, among others. Kloster Ebernach’s organically farmed vineyards (and in biodynamic conversion), in the coolest northern extremes of the Mosel, have been in continuous winegrowing use since 1673 and Martin is combining that heritage and exceptional terroir with a modern, intrepid energy. Each and every Riesling here brings something different to the party, and those the most exciting thing of all is Martin’s only just scratching the surface of what’s possible in this remarkable selection of old vineyards.
From old vines at an altitude of 400 metres, and mostly from Grenache noir, Malabestia is an organic wine made entirely by hand. This is the definition of Minervois: Power, roundness, intensity on the fruit with a explosion of spices and aromatic herbs ..
Like walking through an international marketplace, the bouquet of this Gewürztraminer tantalizes the senses with rose petals, orange peel and cardamom. The full and fruity midpalate shows rich ripe flavors of Bosc pears, white nectarine and lychee finishing crisply with hints of ginger and spice.
The 2016 vintage is possibly the best ever (we think), having great depth and complexity with flavours of cherries and raspberries with a hint of oak and spice. This is a wine to drink young and fresh or to keep for upto 3 years and watch it mellow and mature. It benefits from opening a hour or two before you want to drink it.
With more texture and complexity than the pure styles of Riesling in the Framingham range, the Old Vine Riesling is a deliciously balanced old-world style. Hand-harvested, bunch pressed with no juice clarification, and fermented with uninoculated yeasts, before leaving it on lees for 11 months ahead of bottling. The result is a harmonious mix of mandarin and ripe apple. Harmless crystals may form in the bottle.
