             Chateau de la Negly is fast becoming recognised as the rising
             star of the Languedoc, and it is not difficult to see what all the fuss

          Medium weight, beautifully perfumed Grenache blend that has enough

          As usual with the wines from this excellent property there is plenty of approachable fruit and

          Using Francois Gimie’s award winning Merlot as a base (60%), this delicious wine is up

          mouthful.

          represents excellent value for money.

          Dating back to Roman times, this property simply oozes history, boasting a villa
                 th
          and 7 century Visigoth tomb, and a priory within the grounds of its self sufficient farm
          and winery. The wine is perfumed, full flavoured and is a great example of the rich, spicy style of
          this region.

          This beautiful Syrah provides a great deal of complexity for its humble price tag. The palate
          builds from rounded blackcurrant and dark berry fruit in to a more savoury character before
          finishing with a lick of Rhône like spice.

2008      Le Loup dans La Bergerie, Jean Orliac, Pic St.Loup 8.99                               102.49(12)

              Maverick winemaker Jean Louis Denois is certainly not one to compromise on
              quality, and will only release his wines when he feels they are ready, not when the market
              dictates. This Pinot Noir has to be the best value example of this grape to be found anywhere in
              France. It has heaps of fresh strawberry fruit, fine balance and acidity, followed by a terrific finish
              that would make many a burgundy producer blush!

              This relatively new estate produce fabulous spicy and rich wines that reflect
              the wild, herbaceous terrain in which they are grown, with virtually no oak, just heaps of
              flavour…a true vin de terroir!

              Figure Libre translates as Free Style’, and this wine reflects winemaker Vincent’s desire to
              produce wine as naturally as possible with minimal intervention. 89% Cabernet Franc and 11%
              Cabernet Sauvignon the wine is opaque and perfumed with black cherry and cassis fruit, full
              bodied and intense with multi-layered blackcurrant, cedar and graphite characters. The dense
              fruit is bound up by a structure of fine grained tannins and lively acidity – absolutely delicious!

NV            La 50/50, Anne Gros/Jean Paul Tollot, Vin de Table                         16.99      193.69 (12)
              A joint project between two of Burgundy’s finest winemakers but down in Minervois. This 2008
              blend of 20 – 40 year old Carignan, Cinsault and Grenache needs to be tried regardless of
              whether this is your thing or not. Deeply flavoured and supremely elegant the wine is drinking
              beautifully showing racy, mineral tinged fruit alongside well structured tannins.

2007          La Falaise, Château De La Negly,                                           17.99      205.09(12)

              Soft, deep, rich and spicy, this stunning wine is made from 50% Syrah,
              40% Grenache and 10 % Mouvedre and really does showcase the very
              best the Languedoc has to offer.

           The fruit for this wine is sourced from high altitude vineyards, which helps to
           impart a light and fresh touch in to the resultant wine. Deeply coloured with
           dark berry and forest fruits, this medium bodied Rioja is a fabulous new addition to our list.

           Fabulous Reserva style which is given a little added ‘Oomph’ by the addition of some Cabernet

           Great structure and huge depth of fruit.

           Jesus Baigorri is somewhat a wine visionary with perhaps the most modern winery in Rioja.
           His glass cubes sits atop a hill housing his winery which has been dug a full 7 storeys in to the
           hillside. 100% of the production is gravity fed and it will come as no surprise to learn that his
           style is unashamedly modern, producing wine is complex, multi-layered and dangerously
           enjoyable.

2005       Rioja Edicion Limitada, Bodegas LAN                                          38.00      433.20 (12)
           A blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo & 5% Graciano, all hand picked from LANS finest
           vineyard sites that would once have been destined for Gran Reserva status. Only 5 months in
           French Allier oak and 4 in tight grained Russian oak mean that this wine takes on a generic Rioja
           DOC status, but it is anything but ordinary. Right from pulling the cork one is greeted by a huge
           extraction of fruit and tremendous depth and length.


Ribera del Duero

2007       Arrocal, Bodegas Arrocal                                                     10.99      125.29(12)
           “lusciously fruity, opulent, and hedonistically as well as intellectually satisfying”
           ROBERT PARKER, THE WINE ADVOCATE. With praise such as this it is
           difficult to believe that this wine is so reasonably priced. Sadly, the price is
           bound to rise once this pioneering winery becomes better known.


2005/06    Viña Pedrosa Crianza                                                         20.99      239.29(12)

2004       Palomero, Bodegas Uvaguilera                                                 55.00      627.00 (12)
           Made from a single 70 year old vineyard, this mightily impressive wine shows a “flamboyant
           nose of charcoal, spice box and vanilla mixed with blueberry and blackberry Liqueur. Full-
           bodied, intense and multi-layered.” Robert Parker 93+ Points

          tropical fruit and creamy citrus acidity.

          Widely regarded as the best producer of Chenin Blanc in South Africa, Bruwer Raats
          has aimed to produce the purest expression of the grape with this bright and tasty wine with
          pineapple and citrus fruit with hints of ginger, honeysuckle and orange blossom and fine
          minerality.

2007      Weisser Riesling, Hartenberg, Stellenbosch                                  9.45      107.73 (12)
          Delicious example of the grape with a spatlese level sweetness balanced by terrific, racy acidity.

2007      Sauvignon Blanc, Jordan Estate, Stellenbosch                                9.45      107.73(12)
          Husband and wife team, Chris and Kathy Jordan, specialise in producing
          wines which are perfect expressions of their grape variety and region. This
          wonderfully crisp Sauvignon has plenty of zingy gooseberry fruit, great balancing
          acidity and an underlying richness that adds a little weight to what is a terrific wine.

            With their vineyards at an altitude over 1000 metres above sea level,
            Cederberg are able to produce a fresh, crisp Chenin Blanc that retains
            a characteristic of honeyed richness typical of good Chenin Blanc.

2008        Babylons Peak Viognier, Swartland                                             11.95   136.23 (12)

            This Chardonnay displays a wonderful balance between fruit, careful use of oak,
            and an old world elegance not often found in New World wines.

2007        Sequillo White, Eben Sadie, Swartland                                         17.45   198.93 (12)
            60% Chenin Blanc, 20% Grenache Blanc with the difference being made up of
            Roussanne and Viognier, this gentle wine is beautifully textured with perfect balance
            and a rich, bready finish.

            Pinky-mauve with crunchy redcurrants and tart raspberry fruit, hints of green
            pepper and a crisp finish. Impressive stuff from one of South Africa’s finest producers.

2006        Cabernet Sauvignon, Porter Mill, Robertson                                    6.99    79.69 (12)
            Soft and approachable, this is a classic Cabernet showing good blackcurrant
            fruit, soft tannins and a smooth velvety finish.

            Fruit driven, perfumed and fresh, this enjoyable, approachable and pure Pinotage
            from South Africa’s largest organic producer is a real delight.

2007        Syrah/Carignan, Babylons Peak, Swartland                                      8.45    96.33 (12)
            Well rounded with a sweetly fruited core and touches of spice to the medium
            length finish, this is approachable and above all, massively enjoyable.

            Gottfired didn’t make any of his top cuvee, Troika, in 2008 so most of the fruit
            ended up in this tremendous Bordeaux blend that spends time in old wood adding character
            to the minty, cool climate Cabernet fruit. Sadly stocks are limited.

2004        KC Cabernet/Merlot, Klein Constantia                                          8.99    102.49 (12)
            Whilst new world in situation, Klein Constantia has as much history as most European
            winemakers, but thankfully it declines to remain stuck in the past. This beautifully honed
            Bordeaux blend exemplifies the talent and style brought to the property by its new winemaker
            Adam Mason.

2005        Aprilskloof Red Red Wine, Lammershoek                                         9.45    107.73 (12)
            Initially we were sceptical about a blend that contained 8 different grape varieties
            but there would be ‘many rivers to cross’ to find such a seamless combination. UB40 jokes
            aside, this is a ‘Red Red Wine’ that delivers a ‘sweet sensation’.

2005        Edgebaston Raigmore, Stellenbosch                                             9.49    108.19 (12)
            Merlot, Cabernet and Shiraz make up the blend in this impressive, well structured
            wine made by David Finlayson who used to make Glen Carlou with his father, but has now
            branched out on his own.

2006        Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz, Hartenberg                                         9.99    113.89 (12)
            Rich and hearty yet rounded and soft, this is a great introduction to the wines of this stellar
            estate.

              A blend of Mouvedre, Tannat and a touch of Syrah, this new arrival from
              Edgebaston is surprisingly light given the grapes that go in to it. It is, however,
              well-made with a tantalising, spicy backbone and would make a great partner to
              lighter game dishes in the autumn.

2008          Meerlust Red, Stellenbosch                                                 9.99       113.89 (12)

              This unusual blend shows a deep, full bodied and spicy wine with firm tannins and
              good structure supporting deep berry fruits and hints of vanilla from its 14 months in American
              oak.

              For its sheer drinkability at such an amazing price, the Cabernet Sauvignon
              from Jordan would have to be one of my desert island wines. It is packed full
              of ripe blackcurrant fruit, well balanced oak and too many other well integrated
              flavours to mention, without any hint of a tough edge anywhere. There is only
              one thing better than a bottle of Cabernet from Jordan, and that’s a magnum!

              Cabernet Franc plays an important role (48%), in this Bordeaux blend that displays
              plenty of classic cool climate, eucalyptus flavours, juicy fruit and a firm yet richly textured
              structure from 24 months in French oak...fabulous stuff from a first class producer. Very Limited
              Stocks.

              Whilst justly well known for their show stopping Sauvignon Blanc, Thelema
              are also extremely accomplished red wine makers too. This deeply rich and
              spicy Shiraz is testament to that.

              Chris Williams is winemaker at Meerlust but makes the amazing Foundry wines from
              his own vineyards. Truffle and Cassis on the nose give way to warm dark fruits, pepper
              and a touch of gameyness on the palate, this is concentrated and powerful yet balanced and
              elegant.

              Mike Grgich, (pronounced Gurgich), makes wines that have an impeccable

              Complex, spicy and rich, this wine manages to hide it’s whopping 16% alcohol
              well behind a wall of raspberry and black cherry fruit. Impressive but certainly
              not one for a midweek bottle!

          Tasmania’s cool climate is perfectly suited to the Gewurztraminer and other Alsatian

          A fantastic Aussie Chardonnay that shows terrific oak integration to its ripe,

          acidity with freshness from the relatively high altitude of the vineyards. Special Bin End Price.

          This dry Riesling is a classic example of its type with masses of crunchy green
          apple and lime fruit that is vibrant and tangy. The zesty palate is fresh with
          a delicate structure and great minerality on the finish.

2008      Hay Shed Hill Chardonnay, Margaret River                                      17.95   204.63(12)
          Michael Kerrigan (ex Mad Fish & Howard Park) has bought Hay Shed Hill and breathed
          new life in to it. Only hand picked fruit from ultra low yielding vines is used to make this
          stunning wine that displays restraint and class in equal measures with impeccable use of oak
          and really bright, crisp fruit. Definitely an Awesome Aussie!

            Little brother to the (justly) world renowned Art Series Chardonnay, this brilliant wine is

            This terrific Shiraz is brimming with rich, spicy fruit and is given a little
            added complexity through the late harvesting of grapes which add a
            raisiny touch and an extra hit of balanced alcohol.

2006        Old Vine Grenache, Simon Hackett, McLaren Vale                                  9.99    113.89(12)

            Tamar Ridge swept the board at this years Tasmanian Wine Show and on this

2006      Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon, Penley Estate                                 12.95        147.63(12)
          The founder of Penley Estate, Kym Tolley, learned his art at Penfolds
          under the tutorage of Max Schubert, the creator of Grange. It is little wonder
          that his wines show great purity of fruit coupled with careful and balanced use of oak and
          represent excellent value.

2008      Jester Cabernet Sauvignon, Mitolo, McClaren Vale                          12.95        147.63(12)
          20% of the grapes for this wine are dried out in the same fashion as Amarone and this
          lends the wine a deep, rich and raisiny edge.

2006      Clarry’s Red, Kalleske, Greenock                                          13.99        159.49(12)
          Taking a very minimalistic, handmade approach to winemaking, Kalleske have

          This sophisticated Cabernet Franc comes from a mature, one hectare
          vineyard which enjoys a distinctive microclimate that encourages a wine
          of remarkable finesse and subtlety found too rarely in Cabernet Franc.


2005      Kayena Estate Pinot Noir, Tamar Ridge, Tasmania                           14.99        170.89(12)
          Deep, ripe and earthy Pinot Noir with good structure from the oak ageing,
          velvety tannins and a sublime balance.

2008      Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River                          17.95        204.63 (12)

          A blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Mouvedre and Cinsault from the dedicated and
          talented team at Massena. Only select parcels of old vines and the very healthiest of
          fruit are used.

          This oaked Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz blend comes from vines over 75 years
          old. It is rich ad deeply complex, with a terrific balance of gamey, spicy fruit and
          balanced tannins. This is certainly not your typical Barossa GMS.


2000      Cabernet Sauvignon, Cape Mentelle, Margaret River 24.99                                142.44(6)

          Rather than continue to sell their surplus grapes to the likes of Cloudy Bay, the highly talented
          and quality focussed Cowley Family at Auntsfield Estate took the decision to keep all their fruit in
          the large 2008 vintage and have produced this stunning wine as a result. It shows the typical
          Auntsfield hallmarks of elegance, balance and finesse coupled with stylish drinkability.

          The Cairnbrae Riesling is packed full of classic lime fruit and mineral
          characteristics so typical of this grape. Delicious, zesty and very refreshing .

2008      Sauvignon Blanc, Tindall Vineyard, Marlborough                            10.99      125.29(12)

          Marlborough
          The award winning Sauvignons from Cairnbrae Wild South are archetypal
          Marlborough sauvignons showing intense gooseberry and passion fruit
          flavours wrapped up in zippy acidity.

2008      Long Cow Sauvignon Blanc, Auntsfield Estate                               12.99      148.09912)
          The original Auntsfield Estate was the first commercial vineyard in Marlborough,
          established in 1873 and occupying a prime site in this region. This show
          stopping Sauvignon is extremely well made and shows more restraint and elegance
          than a lot of other Marlborough Sauvignons. A small portion of the grapes are fermented in very
          old oak, giving added depth to the wine without imparting the strong flavours of new oak.

2008      Man O’War Pinot Gris, Ponui Island, Waiheke                               13.99      159.49 (12)
          Produced on a tiny volcanic island next to Waiheke, the exposed Pinot Gris vines
          benefit from the cooling sea breezes and produce an amazing style of wine with hints
          Spatlese style sweetness and a crisp, refreshing tonic like finish.

2008      Metis Sauvignon Blanc, Hawkes Bay                                         13.99      159.49(12)
          Metis is a joint venture between Jon Hancock from Trinity Hills and Pascal Jolivet from
          Sancerre and the results are quite stunning and manage to combine the best Hawkes Bay fruit
          with French savoir faire. Produced from cooler areas within the Gimblett Gravels section of HB,
          every aspect of the production is geared towards producing the purest form of Sauvignon Blanc
          – Stainless steel fermentation, partially clarified must, lees ageing and natural yeasts are just
          some of the techniques employed to produce this supremely elegant Sauvignon. Very classic
          and so much more restrained than the ‘full-throttle’ Marlborough style.

2008      Alpha Domus Viognier, Hawkes Bay                                          13.99      159.49(12)
          Luscious and complex showing all the hallmarks of this terrific grape variety,

          deal of fresh acidity to balance out the wine keeping it fresh and clean on the long finish.

          Named after the Trout that inhabit the Tukipo River, the 2006 is the first
          vintage of this impressive wine. Ripe nectarine and grapefruit aromas lead
          to a creamy palate with crisp, Chablis-like minerl tinged acidity. Complete with
          a ‘Parsons Glory’ fly, this wine is bound to delight both angler and wine lover alike.

           The Sauvignon Blanc (70%) for this wine is kept in stainless steel and lees
           stirred for 8 months whilst the Semillon (30%) aspect is barrel-fermented and aged
           whilst also on its lees. The result is a wine that has incredible depth of flavour and richness that
           one doesn’t see with the pure Sauvignon Blancs from this region.

2008       Man O’War Chardonnay, Waiheke Island                                       16.99         193.69 (12)

           Tasted blind, this wine would knock the socks off many burgundies with
           loftier price tags. Perfumed and elegant with great body and length, this
           All Black in a French jersey is terrific value Pinot Noir.

2008       Harwood Hall Pinot Noir, Central Otago                                     15.85         180.69 (12)
           Rich, rounded and juicy this delicious Otago Pinot has a little less alcohol than most
           from this region, but the same up front fruit and complexity one would expect. Great value.

2008       Man O’War Merlot/Cab Franc/Malbec, Waiheke Island 16.99                                  193.69(12)
           Man O’War farm 60 hectares of vines spread over 90 different vineyard sites mostly on
           Waiheke. Brilliantly balanced with power and elegance gently jostling for centre stage, this
           Bordeaux blend shows complexity and approachability in equal measure with each part of the
           blend playing a vital role.

2008       Rabbit Ranch Pinot Noir, Central Otago                                     16.99         193.69 (12)
           The back label to this wine reads “ A bright eyed red with hints of Briar patch and a whiff of gun
           smoke”, and one might be forgiven for thinking the wines of Rabbit Ranch a gimmick. They are
           certainly serious wines that are great examples of both variety and regionality…do give them a
           try and we guarantee you will be left dazzled by their brilliance.

2006       Hawk Hill Pinot Noir, Auntsfield Estate, Marlborough 17.99                               205.09(12)
           A deep ruby/crimson colour, this concentrated Pinot Noir has intense aromas of dark
           cherries and subtle oak, rich berry fruit and spice on the palate and ripe tannin structure with
           excellent length.

2006       Fat Duck Pinot Noir, Tukipo River Estate                                   18.99         216.49(12)
           With a climate more similar to Martinborough further to the south, it is little
           wonder that this elegant, perfumed Hawkes Bay Pinot is so characterful.
           Classic forest floor and bramble fruit characters lead to black cherry and spice
           with hints of leather on the long silky finish.

2007       Wild Earth Pinot Noir, Bannockburn, Central Otago                          19.99         227.88(12)
           Central Otago is producing Pinot Noirs that can more than rival their Burgundian
           counterparts and this terrific example shows a great depth of elegant perfumed
           and velvety fruit with terrific acidity and great length.


2008       Dreadnought Syrah, Man O’War, Waiheke Island                               25.00         285.00 (12)
           Savoury and powerful with tremendous depth and complexity, this is cool climate Syrah
           that is far more Northern Rhone than new world in style – very accomplished winemaking.
