Time to get into the Christmas Cheer and what better way than Kopke Port!

Friday, 6 December, 2013 by  

Kopke, the oldest Port Wine house celebrating this year its 375th anniversary and what a great accolade it is to then score 94 points in the Wine Spectator with their 2011 Kopke Vintage Port. 

Rated with 94 points, the noble 2011 Kopke Vintage Port, reveals flavours of black fruits, with notes of “plums, raspberries and cherries,” and a touch of “chocolate truffles.” The finish is “seductive”, with hints of wood. The wine critic confirms the enormous ageing in bottle potential, suggesting to drink this wine between 2025 and 2050.

The 2011 Kopke Vintage Port also received from wine critics, 92/100 points from James Suckling & 16/20 from Jancis Robinson so an all round winner.

We also offer a selection of Kopke Colheita’s, LBV, Tawny’s & White Ports, for futher information please contact us Logo

“A belter with bangers” – Olly Smith

Monday, 2 December, 2013 by  

Olly Smith recently wrote an article for the Daily Mail (9th November)- pairing a wide variety of sausages with wines. He choose our Smoking Loon Old Vine Zinfandel to accompany “a big banger”. He described the wines as:
“Scented with Christmas spice and layered with plump juicy raspberry-like flavours. A belter with bangers”

The Smoking Loon range offers a good choice of varietals, snazzy packaging and a keen price point,  this Califorian range is an excellent addition to any shelf or list.

Vagabond Colin gives us his in views on the Von Buhl 2012 GG

Thursday, 12 September, 2013 by  

We unleashed the wonderful 2012 Von Buhl Grosse Gewachs last week in Harrods to trade and press to some fabulous reviews. This was the first time in the world (other than Germany) that the wines have been presented. We think the attached short video (7 secs) that Colin from Vagabond sent us sums it up (kinda of!)
