200 Gallons Reserva 2021

Item Code: 4097121

Description

Jaime Quendera, our favourite Portuguese winemaker, has made a juicy, fruit-forward red, aged in a very special cask. Enjoy Alicante Bouschet’s silky texture, sourced from rare, ancient vines that ooze rich flavours of black cherry and pepper.

Can you imagine buying 1,008 bottles of wine in one year?

That’s 200 gallons to be exact – the same amount that each American household was allowed to make for ‘personal use’ during Prohibition.

And the go-to grape during this DIY time wasn’t Cabernet or Merlot, it was the bold and juicy Alicante Bouschet - widely planted in California but originally from Portugal.

Today, award-winning winemaker Jamie Quendera has crafted a mighty, Reserva-quality red, from rare 100-year-old vines.

And the unique twist? Jamie aged the wine for 12 months in custom double casks. The top and bottom are French oak (imparting subtle spice) while the long side planks are American (for vanilla notes).

The result is an ultra-smooth, cherry-ripe, well-spiced drop!

Low Stock Alpha Domus Merlot Cabernet Collection 2017

Alpha Domus Merlot Cabernet Collection 2017

Item Code: 4253117

Description

There's plenty of noise about New Zealand's great whites, but don't forget the reds. Most of the fine Bordeaux-style blends come from North Island's Hawke's Bay. From a family estate, here's a superb silky red with bright fruit and savoury length.

Alpha Domus was started in the early days of New Zealand winemaking – 1989 to be precise.

Anthonius and Leonarda Ham saw that the Western Heretaunga region of Hawke's Bay, with its ancient riverbeds and moderate climate, held the secret to fine wines.

They planted vineyards in this area, now known as the Bridge Pa Triangle district, and were one of the subregion's first wineries.

They remain family-owned today and have received Trophies for their impressive wines. 30 years later, they have converted fully to organic viticulture, with certification from the 2023 vintage.

New Zealander Barry Riwai is the winemaker. With considerable experience all over the world, he is well suited to produce this elegant Kiwi take on a Bordeaux blend.

Altos de Bergasa Gran Reserva Rioja 2016

Item Code: 4380416

Description

Mellow, 7-year-old Gran Reserva Rioja from this family-owned winery. Silky red fruits and spice.



Altos de Bergasa is from Bodegas La Eralta, a family-owned winery founded in 1990. Quite young in terms of Rioja.

It proudly owns 360 hectares of vineyard throughout the three subregions, with this luscious Gran Reserva named after its first plots, planted in the village of Bergasa.

At their modern cellars, they boast 10,000 French and American oak barrels, within which they age their finest wines – from Crianza to this exceptional Gran Reserva.

For this wine, they only age their finest grapes, all Tempranillo, ageing the wine at least a year in barrel and the rest of the time in bottle.

Despite its 7 years' age, it is still fairly youthful. Delicious drinking now, we recommend early opening and decanting to release all the flavours.

Low Stock Altos de la Guardia Selección de Familia Rioja 2014

Altos de la Guardia Selección de Familia Rioja 2014

Item Code: 4375914

Description

This glorious Rioja was destined for Reserva quality, aged a year in barrel and then bottled. But upon tasting, winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua decided it could be tucked away a little longer.

It ended up being considerably longer than intended, but all's well that ends well, because 10 years later it's proved to be absolutely stunning – a silky, velvety luxury wine. A great choice with lamb.

Altos Salix Alba Single Vineyard 2017

Item Code: 3881217

Description

From Winery of the Year 2017 with 125 Golds and Trophies galore, comes this stellar single vineyard Rioja. 80 year old vines lie in El Pisón, where Artadi source grapes for their £260 a bottle Rioja.



Since Jean-Marc Sauboua founded his Altos de Rioja winery, it's won 125 Golds, 40 scores over 90 and Trophies too. Winery of the Year, Rioja of the Year and more.

His secret? He's Bordeaux born and trained at First Growth Château Haut Brion. His aim was to make Grand Cru Classé wines in Rioja, so he chose only high altitude vineyards, the highest in all Rioja.

So grapes ripen slowly, with great finesse and intensity. Visit his winery, up in the clouds – it's cold! Salix Alba is a new release for him and very special.

It uses grapes solely from El Pisón, a tiny location where the famous Artadi bodega gets grapes for its £260 a bottle wine.

Ageing in all new French oak lends the finishing touches to this sumptuous red. A special dinner red.

Aluado Alicante Bouschet Reserva 2020

Item Code: 3547520

Description

Customers love our Gold-medal-winning Aluado red. So be prepared for the even richer Reserva version. Winemaker Jose Neiva has taken the best parcels of Alicante; the result, fabulous dark fruit and spicy length.



When Jose Neiva Correira first decided to make a red from pure Alicante Bouschet, a grape usually used as part of a blend, everyone thought he was mad – 'aluado', moonstruck, crazy.

But a huge haul of Golds later and they've changed their minds. The velvety black fruits that are so loved by our customers can now be enjoyed tenfold with the even richer Reserva edition.

José has searched out the very finest, low-yielding and intensely ripe Alicante grapes for this super cuvée, and you can taste the mouth filling difference.

Even more richness and spice, but at only 13%, it's still no heavyweight and has a lovely zip of freshness to all that blackberry, cassis and damson fruit.

Enjoy with richly flavoured casseroles and red meat dishes.
