  1. Weihenstephaner Kristal 500ml
    Weihenstephaner Kristal 500ml
    In our golden-yellow crystal-clear wheat beer the fresh citrus flavour harmonises very well with spicy banana notes. The fine sparkling gives it a tangy and animated appearance. Throughout summer and winter, it’s a prickling experience. It goes well with fish, seafood, white meat or it can be enjoyed as an aperitif. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

    Weihenstephaner Dunkel 500ml

    Our dark wheat beer is impressive with its creamy white foam. A fruity-fresh sweetness and hints of mature bananas harmonise with delicious flavours of roasted malt, sparkling and full-bodied with a light caramel taste on the first sip. An excellent accompaniment from hearty meals and game to chocolate and nut desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

  3. Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020
    Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020

    How do they do it? This has been a PWS favourite for some time now and it never fails to deliver. Made by Rheinhessen legends Gunderloch with vineyards  close to the Rhines south-east steep slopes. The combination of the red slate soil, the proximity to the river, the exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards - are perfect for producing wonderful ripeness. If you are a German riesling fan it would be hard to beat this for the sheer quality and insane value it represents.

    The wine shows lovely stone fruit, peach and pithy characters as it opens in the glass. There is a salty mineral hit to that is really lovely. The fresh natural acidity zip through the ripe and spice flecked palate while a little aromatic lift gives this some real interest. Dry, fresh and full of character. PWS

  4. Thymiopoulos Xinomavro Young Vine 2019
    Thymiopoulos Xinomavro Young Vine 2019

    The Thymiopoulos family have been growing Xinomavro, the trademark grape of the highly regarded Náoussa zone in the far north of Greece for generations. Tucked away in the southern tip of the zone on the slopes of Mount Vermio, the estate is now run by Apostolos Thymiopoulos, who, after oenological training in Athens, established the winery in2003.

    They have made a name quickly for themselves in a short time since establishing the winery and this wine is a consistent performer.

    The Young Vines is unoaked and presents with a fruity and easy-going nose with subtle hint of earth flecked throughout the red tinged fruits. If you have not had Xionamavro yet, this is a great entry point to the style, though in a more laid-back and lighter style that works so well. Brisk acidity and a clip of tannin along with those earthy red fruits are reminiscent of a cross between Beaujolias and Nebiolo. The whole package is mouth-watering and more-ish and will keep you coming back for more. PWS

  5. Kir-Yianni Kali Riza Amyndeon PDO Xinamavro 2017
    Kir-Yianni Kali Riza Amyndeon PDO Xinamavro 2017
    PDO Amyndeon, 100% Xinomavro

    The 2017 Kali Riza Xinomavro "Vielles Vignes" is a Xinomavaro aged for 12 months in used, mostly (90%) French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Sourced from old vines (50+ years) in the Rasto sub-appellation of Amyndeon, this is rather soft and sweet for the grape on opening (although the sweetness is a touch of wood that dissipates), with good acidity. The soft impression does not last long, as it has some serious tannins. As powerful as this is, it shows less rusticity than some I've seen this issue. The balance just seems to work better. The mid-palate makes this seem delicate—or you could say it has finesse. The juicy finish propelled by the acidity makes it both lively and appealing. It needs a few years in the cellar to come around, perhaps more than indicated. It should age well thereafter, perhaps also more than indicated, but let's be a bit conservative, as always. This should reward you if you cellar it a few years. MARK SQUIRES, eRobertParker.com

  6. Foundi Trygias 2016
    Foundi Trygias 2016
    PGI Imathia, 100% Xinomavro

    The 2016 Trygias Foundi Blanc de Noir is all Xinomavro (but made as a white), aged for nine months in 80% new French oak. It comes in at 12.2% alcohol. If you like acidity, if you don't think it means a thing without that zing, this is for you. The Naoussa area is not exactly known for its whites, but this is a pretty fine and zesty performance. Tart on the edges, it has notable power as it attacks the palate, grips it and doesn't let go. The acidity zips through the oak nicely, putting it in its place. Overall, this should be a great summer refresher this summer, but it may be better in a year. At that point, it might even garner an increase in score. A little settle-down time surely wouldn't hurt. I'm acidity tolerant and liked this a lot. MARK SQUIRES

  7. Argatia Naoussa 2013
    Argatia Naoussa 2013

    The 2013 Naoussa is all Xinomavro, of course, aged for 12 months in an equal mixture of French and American oak (overall, only 10% new). It comes in at 13.1% alcohol. This is a bit delicate in the mid-palate relative to its power. That's the last understatement you'll see. Showing pure power and earthy astringency, this tannic wine ends with some pop and grip. It's also got that Xinomavro acidity. Do you like them old-school, rustic, difficult and needing some age? Do you like those old-fashioned Barolos? Well, then, this is for you. Nowhere close to being ready to drink, this might—might!—be in good or at least better shape around 2023. I did see some light (and fruit) at the end of the tunnel after holding it open for two more hours and decanting it. Despite the average mid-palate depth, I think this will hold well enough to absorb some of the power and come into better balance. Right now, it seems to me to be the best wine I've seen from Argatia. It does, admittedly, have some balance questions to answer, so let's be a little conservative for the moment and let it develop. You need a cellar and patience if you buy this. Sourced from 13-year-old vines, there were only 7,000 bottles produced. MARK SQUIRES, erobertparker.com

  8. Georg Breuer Rudesheim Estate Riesling 2016
    Georg Breuer Rudesheim Estate Riesling 2016
    The 2016 Rheingau Riesling Rüdesheim "Estate" is super clear, bright and elegant on the nose, with lovely stony-mineral notes, almost stone dust but also beautiful concentration. On the palate, this is a round, juicy, very fruity but clear, piquant, well-structured and finely mineral Rheingau classic at 11.5% alcohol. It drinks perfectly today and will also do so over the next 15 to 20 years. Sweetness and acidity are in perfect balance here (8.4 grams per litre). A highly filigreed and delicate Riesling.
