Malvasia Nera 'Talo' Salento San Marzano is a wonderfully rich wine from Italy's Apulia region, with delicious dense flavours of vanilla and baked orange with a touch of thyme, warm and spicy on the finish.
This is pure, unadulterated classic Prosecco. There's a slice of pear, chunk of apple and spot of peach all working together in perfect fruity harmony, combined with small delicate bubbles and a wonderful long, creamy finish.
Asti DOCG Dolce is made to sparkle by the Charmat method: Muscat (Moscato) grapes are fermented at low temperature until the balance between alcohol (7%) and residual sugars (3-5%) reaches the optimum balance of intense aroma and refreshing sweetness. Fresh, floral and moreish, this is the perfect aperitif wine.
A vibrant and fresh expression of Chenin Blanc. Aromas of fresh pear, ripe apricot and subtle oak spice lead to a firm texture with a beautiful fine crisp line penetrating the length of the palate supporting flavours of ripe Granny Smith apples and cinnamon spice.

Ruby colour with soft oak and dried fruit aromas on the nose, followed by raspberries and warm earthy tones on the palate with a touch of oak on the finish. Good integration of tannins and fruit make this a rich, smooth and balanced wine.
A classic example of this uniquely South African red wine. Distinctively rich ruby in colour, with bold aromatics of dark chocolate, stewed fruit, spice and hints of coffee. Silky tannins over a backing of integrated oak ensures elegance and balance, with an endless finish.

Gaia Notios White Peloponnisos is a fascinating, full-bodied unoaked white, from the indigenous Roditis and Moschofilero grapes. Moschofilero, harvested from the Arcadian plateaux, contributes a vibrant, floral flavour while Roditis, from the Corinthian slopes, provides a smooth lemony character.
