Dark Horse Chardonnay 2015
Oak. Smooth. Caramel. Anything but ordinary. Winemaker, Beth Liston, knocked the dust off the traditional Chardonnay flavor profile to give this classic varietal a true Dark Horse makeover. Thanks to her signature mix of classic and innovative techniques, Dark Horse Chardonnay has made believers out of the very label-chasers who thought quality wine had to come at a price.
Wine EnthusiastSmooth and easy-drinking, this medium-bodied wine has the attributes many people enjoy: vanilla and coconut aromas, lightly sweet apple flavors that coat the palate, and a pear syrup quality that lingers on the finish.
Belle Ambiance Pinot Grigio 2016Head outdoors and sip this wine as you revel in the sunset with a spring salad and grilled halibut. WINEMAKING Fruit for the Belle Ambiance Pinot Grigio was harvested in the cool hours of the night, delivered to the winery and then immediately pressed into fermenters. A slow, low-temperature fermentation on very low grape solids and aging that took place entirely in stainless steel allowed us to capture all of the delicate fruit and floral aromas that a Pinot Grigio can deliver. TASTING NOTES Delicate floral aromas of lemon blossom, honeysuckle, and jasmine are accented by notes of white peach and juicy pineapple that fram core flavors of sweet honeydew melon, white nectarine and tart lemon. This medium-bodied wine is bright and crisp with a tangy,lingering finish.
Casas Patronales Carmenere 2016These wines have a powerful, fruity expression that reveals each variety without embellishment, unveiling all its flavours and aromas.

WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS This is an intense red-coloured wine with violet notes. Complex forest fruit and cherry aromas dominate the bouquet. The palate reveals cassis, tabacco, spices and ripe black plums. The finish is long and balanced.

MAN Sauvignon Blanc 2016Our Sauvignon Blanc is produced from higher, cooler vineyards in the Cape. Warrelwind (whirlwinds) are common in the vineyards throughout summer. The seasonal winds cool the grapes and turn the windmills dotting the landscape. Vibrant with fresh acidity, MAN Sauvignon Blanc is wonderfully refreshing. Fans of our Sauvignon Blanc regularly mention the lively bouquet and tropical fruit notes, which really make the wine stand apart from its often too green and grassy peers. From the winemaker: Our Sauvignon Blanc is one of the few wines where we bring in grapes from outside our growing region - fruit from the cooler, higher-elevation vineyard from Stellenbosch adds fruit intensity. The 10% Semillon also helps the wine age well in the bottle. As with all our wines, we only choose grapes with a very concentrated flavour, so you enjoy a refreshingly crisp wine with a generous bouquet of pineapple and lime. Pair with... All you need is a summer's afternoon and you're set. If you're peckish, try sushi, salads or fish dishes alongside a chilled glass of MAN Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc.
DFJ Vinhos Paxis Red Blend 2013Mr. Dino Ventura, one of DFJ's founders ("D), was one of the most innovative sales and marketing men the UK wine sector ever saw. He looked at all aspects of society to find ideas to apply to promoting Portuguese wine. One day he was watching one of his children playing a very traditional and physical UK game called Bulldog. During the game he heard children saying Paxis as a way to express immunity from being caught. Paxis struck him as an ideal way of expressing those times when we escape from the stress of the world and can appreciate the pleasure a great wine can give. Because of that, the Paxis wines are always carefully selected to offer a great ratio price/quality/pleasure. Enjoy!
