A full-bodied red wine from the Domaine De Pellehaut winery on the slopes of Chateau de Pellehaut. It is made using 70% Tannat and 30% Merlot, which is matured in oak for 18 months. This is good to drink straight away, but does lend itself to spending a good, long while in a cellar.
Aussie red made using Shiraz/Grenache/Mataro grapes in the style of Chateauneuf du Pape, which is also where the name comes from (although we do enjoy the idea of nine Popes hanging out together, just chatting to each other about what engine they've got in their Popemobile). It was matured in 80% French oak and 20% American oak casks. The 2010 vintage is considered a highlight of the series.
This big and vibrant port with ripe notes of dark cherry, plum and damson. From the renowned Fonseca House, the wine is from an undeclared but very good vintage, 1996, hence the more moderate price point.
A rich, syrupy Pedro Ximenez from Gutierrez Colosia. Like boiled down date and walnut cake, this stuff is absolutely divine.
The 2010 Domaine du Rempart Châteauneuf du Pape is a lighter style Chateauneuf which will drink younger but don't rush, it will still be drinking for a few years!
Located in the Marlborough region, the vineyards of Cloudy Bay are spread out to maximise diversity of micro-climates and soil types for their grapes. Without this, we wouldn't have their fantastic Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2013, which has a varied and fantastically bright selection of fruity notes, including sharp citrus, stone fruits and lemongrass.
A very fruity 10 year old Tawny port from Dow's. Lots of candied, over ripe fruit, caramel and nuttiness.
A cream sherry from Barbadillo, made with Palomino Fino grapes from Andalusia. This is a blend of old, dry Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez and it is matured in a solera for 7 years. Richness on the palate.
An intensely rich PX from Gonzalez Byass, this has been aged for more than thirty years producing a full-flavoured powerful PX.
Croft Original Sherry. In a bottle.
