  1. Pfeiffer Christophers VP 2015 500ml
    Pfeiffer Christophers VP 2015 500ml

    This has won a swag of gold medals at recent wine shoes. It’s incredible value for money. Evocative and ebullient in its youth it will also age beautifully.

    ‘…A heady mix of dark chocolate, violets and ripe black berries with lovely brandy spirit giving complexity.  A rich powerful core of blueberries, blackcurrants, allspice and violets with some lovely bitter chocolate tannins to counter the sweetness on the palate. The tannins are fine and chalky. This has a sensational life ahead.’ GABRIELLE POY, PWS

  2. Pfeiffer Christophers VP 2004 500ml
    Pfeiffer Christophers VP 2004 500ml
    'Whoa - Christmas in a glass. Arresting nose of  raspberry, plum, chocolate and graphite. Some complexing tertiary notes of leather and spice temper the pure, clean and sleek fruits.  A very composed and detailed rendition of a VP - nothing stewy or overly ripe.  It's a lovely, balanced and warming Aussie VP with 16 years under its belt, and still plenty of life ahead. JEFF SALT, PWS

  3. Williams Paola Medina Fino Palomino de Anada 2010 500ml
    Williams Paola Medina Fino Palomino de Anada 2010 500ml
    Based on old vines in Pagos Añina and Carrascal (jerez). Product of a cool, humid vintage.
    The 2019 saca is the last bottling of this incredible Fino.

    Hints of brassy development, really mature standing grass, traces of fine caramelised toffee as pure perfume, weightless and dry. Great depth without weight, very true to style, tangy as heck, whisper clear and still with a trace of whisky-wildness. SCOTT WASLEY

  4. Radikon Ribolla 2013 500ml
    Radikon Ribolla 2013 500ml

    In some ways this is the wine that got Stanko Radikon inspired to change his ways. Indigenous to the area and at the time not widely planted it has a unique profile with golden colour (in a conventional bottling and on the vine and often used in sweeter styles). PWS

    review for the 2011
    Orangey brown but bright and golden at the core. You can still smell the golden yellow Ribolla fruit. Some tea and dried grasses but full of fruit. Spice and a touch of savoury mushroom. Umami too. Sour barley sugar. Nutty walnut. Orange and walnuts. Mouth-watering and just slightly sweaty on the finish. Incredibly long. Chewy, mineral and just intensely delicious and so fresh. So much fruit. Wild and gorgeous, powerful. JULIA HARDING, www.jancisrobinson.com

  5. Tedeschi Recioto Monte Fontana 2011 Recioto 500ml
    Tedeschi Recioto Monte Fontana 2011 Recioto 500ml

    This sweet and rich dessert wine is produced with select grapes in only the best vintages, from the Monte Fontana vines of Pedemonte. Recioto is a historic Valpolicella wine, known through history under different names since Roman times.

    After hand-harvesting and strict selection, the grapes are dried in a controlled environment for 4 months. The wine is obtained via natural arrest of fermentation and left to mature for 2 years in Slavonian oak casks, then aged in bottle for an additional 6 months.

  6. Navazos La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada "Bota Punta"  No 60 500ml
    Navazos La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada "Bota Punta" No 60 500ml

    The so-called NV La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada 60 Bota Punta is sourced from a special cask "Bota Punta" that was already bottled as numbers 20, 40 and 50. This particular cask from the Manzanilla Pasada 'solera' from the Calle Misericordia winery from La Guita was isolated, because it has a very marked biological character - a very old Manzanilla that keeps more 'flor' than the other butts in the 'solera' and shows less oxidative. The other particularity is that this cask is always refilled with wine from the other 14 casks from the 'solera', and therefore keeps an average age a couple of years older, around 17 years, while keeping a younger/fresher profile. They all have the iodine and saline character, the seaweed, low tide and the vertical palate. This is the most special -and scarce and expensive - of all the manzanillas pasadas from Navazos. Really world class. This is the one with depth and sharpness beyond belief, a step up in complexity, elegance and balance. It's funny how the wine seems to overcome oxidation and starts getting sharper and sharper again. This is truly outstanding. LUIS GUTIERREZ robertparker.com

    A 'bota punta' is the final, ground-level cask at one end of a solera: different by nature (since it is sampled more often, and may be exposed to different environmental conditions to the rest of the solera) and different by tutelage (often refreshed by the cellarmaster or capataz from the solera itself, rather than from younger criaderas). Absolutely grand, not so much in terms of its aromas, which are harmonious, arresting and tangy, but in terms of its concentrated, challenging and highly detailed flavours: fresh, mouthwatering and tongue-coating, a kind of Japanese banquet reduced to a single glass of wine, with a cascade of tuna flake, seaweed, ginger and green tea allusions.

  7. Williams Paola Medina Amontillado de Anada 2001 500ml
    Williams Paola Medina Amontillado de Anada 2001 500ml
    ABV 20%. Only 750 litres bottled. After delicate fermentation (17-22 degrees), the original Fino was aged biologically at 15.5% and later re-fortified to 18%. Later amontillados (after 2003) have not been re-fortified at all. This, Paola's first Amontillado, was aged biologically for 10 years, by which time it had naturally evolved into a developed Fino without flor, and was classified Amontillado, re-fortified and aged oxidatively.

    Supremely elegant, mineral and vibrant with great complexity. Brilliant amber in colour, very complex aromas, dry in the mouth, mineral, rounded and persistent. TSA

  8. Williams Paola Medina Oloroso de Anada 2001 500ml
    Williams Paola Medina Oloroso de Anada 2001 500ml
    Super deep and complex, rich and saline, with a pure developed perfume. Mapled acorn-rich, lightly glyceric, deeply spiced, strong at the rim, releasing to an ethereal boof from a structural base. Fine glazed toffee nut, orange blossom, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, dried chestnut honey, toasted hazelnuts, delicate tangerine caramel, brandied citrus, sandalwood. The acidity itself is incredibly complex, carrying brine and rind, fine old wheat and praline in a gloriously patinated, running mouthfeel. TSA

  9. Williams Paola Medina Palo Cortado de Anada 2002 500ml
    Williams Paola Medina Palo Cortado de Anada 2002 500ml
    2.9 pH, 6.3 TA, 20% abv. As with the other wines, the fruit source is Pagos Añina and Carrascal. This wine is from a fruit selection of extremely fine young material which Paola hoped might develop naturally into a Palo Cortado. After 17 years' ageing the wine was finally classifed Palo Cortado in 2018, and this is its first bottling as such.

    Extremely fine and silky wine, elegant and mineral. Golden mahogany to look at, complex tobacco-timber-mineral aromas, delicate and subtle in the mouth, the elusive fine-unctuous double nature of Palo Cortado in clear view. Balanced persistence in a really long finish. TSA
