2021 Selon Letang Cinsault, Vin de France 12.5%
May 6, 2022
A style of red that the French refer to as "croquant" (crunchy).  This is a beautifully lighter red with vibrant redcurrant and raspberry fruit and an attractive wild edge and no oak.  This is at its best when served cool - ideally 12-14 degrees centigrade which is usually cellar temperature.  If you haven't got a […]

2023 Viognier, Selon Letang, Vin de France 13.0%
May 25, 2024
Viognier grapes are often left on the vine for longer than other varieties to develop an extra level of ripeness and depth that works well in the final wine.  That is not the case here though where the grapes were picked earlier to create a different style.  The French refer to this style of Viognier […]

2018 Cabriola, Bodegas Borsao, Campo de Borja, Spain 15.5%
May 28, 2024
We showed this at a Christmas winetasting a year or so ago and it was a massive hit!  It's a rich and impressive Grenache Syrah blend from Borsao's high altitude, low-yielding vineyards. The oak is really well done here, generous in style but balanced with plentiful fruit, it offers a lot of complexity and a […]

2022 Borsao Seleccion Blanco, Campo de Borja 13.5%
February 14, 2024
This is a wonderfully satisfying white from Campo de Borja which really over delivers. It's blend of Chardonnay and Macabeo with gentle toasty character that makes it stand out at this price level.  It's made from selected grapes from vines grown on stony, sandy soils, at an altitude of 500 metres which are hand harvested […]
