Les TerrassesMerlot / Syrah (France / IGP Ardèche - Vegeterian) The grapes are sourced from sandstone terraces around the village of Rosières. The wine is a beautiful ruby red colour and offers aromas of strawberry and raspberry, with a full mouthfeel and well-structured tannins. A wine for cold meats and soft cheese (French of course)
Barahonda Tinto (Spain / DO Yecla- Vegan)This is one of our favorites - its spice and fruit pairs wonderfully with sweet or savory sausages, beef or pork empanadas, and everyone's favourite tapas, albondigas. A well-balanced and powerful Monastrell.
Barahonda Blanco Sauvignon Blanc / Verdejo (Spain / DO Yecla - Organic/Vegan)Tropical fruit and hints of citrus, the intense aromas are followed by freshness and elegance on the palate and a long finish where the characteristic green fruits, typical to the Verdejo grape variety, are present.

Afrikan Ridge Pinotage (S.Africa / Western Cape - Vegan) New to us, we've been impressed with SA Pinotage for a while, and we believe that this example is a great bet.

Ideal with venison, red meat, curries and spicy foods

Cordero con Piel de Lobos (Argentina - Vegan) A blend of Malbecs from three vineyards – 40% Perdriel, 35% Agrelo, 20% Barrancas – hand harvested at different dates at optimum ripeness. Fermentation is in concrete vats, 50% then aged in oak barrels for 6-8 months. Rich, raisiny, with blueberry and spice. One for shish kebabs grilled on the barbecue.
Simon & The Huguenots (S.Africa - Vegan ) Sauvignon/Semillon blend from Stellenbosch. Citrus, lime, fresh lemon with gooseberry and passion-fruit character with grassy notes from the Sauvignon. Very refreshing pear, melon and tropical fruit flavours. Chicken dishes with forest mushroom sauce would be just perfect.
Somewhere Else (Argentina - Vegan) Not all great Argentinian wine comes from the Malbec grape. This wine is pure Petit Verdot, made from their own vines in single estate vineyards. The grapes are given a long maceration before a natural malolactic fermentation, then the wine is aged in oak for eight months with cold stabilization and light filtration prior to bottling. Delicious, delicate, and happy enough to be drunk on its own or with any red meats or rootsy vegetarian dishes.
Little Cricket (Hungary) Grüner Veltliner at 12% and with a tiny tiny off-dryness that makes it perfect for warmer drinking. A pale straw colour with typical light aromas of apple and a hint of honey. The palate is also light but with a good structure followed by lingering crisp apples and a citrus finish.Drink on its own or alongside salads, savoury starters, seafood dishes, pasta, tapas and sushi.
Sun Gate (California) We say the days of ABC (Anything But Chardonnay) are long past, as this most amazing and versatile of grapes is certainly making a renaissance. This is Californian sunshine in a glass. A delicious, lightbodied Chardonnay packed full of citrus, apple and floral notes with the just lightest touch of vanilla. Risottos, cold meats, what you will...
