In anticipation of the long bank holiday weekend coming up and the Queens Jubilee celebrations, I have created a case of 12 amazing wines that are sure to delight.

 Each of these wines has been carefully selected from the new batch of amazing wines that are gradually being added to my website and a few old favourites that are simply too good to leave out!

Fizz 

Let's start with the fizz as it wouldn't be a proper celebration without a superb Champagne.  The Duval Leroy Brut Reserve is simply astounding.  It punches well above its weight in terms of all-round quality, flavour, and style. This refreshing Champagne is a blend of Pinot Noir 60%, Pinot Meunier 30% and Chardonnay 10%. The Brut Reserve offers the perfect balance between finesse and power, drawing out biscuity flavours layered with dark chocolate, cinnamon and roasted yellow fig. Beautifully balanced with a deliciously long finish.

Whites 

The Bodegas Ondarre Valdebaron White Rioja is sold out everywhere, but I have squirrelled away some just for this case. This sublime white wine has delicate aromas of white flowers which are layered with green apple and pear. Refreshing with an elegant creamy texture, balanced by crisp acidity, this has a deliciously long and mouthwatering finish.

The Ktima Alphas Estate Malagousia from Greece is a delightful white wine that has expressive aromas of exotic fruits combined with hints of pepper, orange, jasmine, herbs and a touch of lemon. Lively, attractive and vivacious, with a rich and beautifully balanced palate.

Off to the Loire in France for the Menetou Salon from Joust de Villebois. This is a refreshing and richly flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with exotic fruit flavours of juicy peach complemented by delicate notes of wildflowers. Soft and rounded, with a lovely crisp finish.

Australia gives us an old favourite with Larry Cherubino's Apostrophe Stones Throw White. This exotic white wine will blow you away with the rich combination of Gewurztraminer's exotic spice and rose water layers beautifully with notes of lemon, lime and minerality from Riesling. The softly textured palate has a long, refreshing acidity supported by citrus notes and rose petal on the finish.

The heat of Sicily is perfect for Columba Bianca Carricante Lavi.  The Carricante grape produces a dry, crisp white with notes of melon, juicy peach and aromatic herbs through to a fruity palate with an exceptionally long finish characterised by touch of white pepper and sage. 

Reds

We must start the reds with "This is NOT another Lovely Malbec" from Larry Cherubino.  This is one of the softest and silkiest Malbec I have ever drunk and it's a FIRM favourite and obviously another lovely Malbec. Pure fruit-driven notes of wild raspberry and ripe plum are layered with delicate floral notes. Smooth and silky with fine tannins, this is a Malbec of great elegance.

France gives us the iconic Ventoux Cuvee Special from Domaine de Champ Long.  This Grenache and Syrah blend has deep luscious aromas of blackcurrants and dark cherry that are accompanied by delicate spicy notes on the nose. Round and beautifully structured with supple tannins and a long, satisfying finish.

 Roberto Echeverria from Chile has been supplying me with amazing Chilean wines for over 20 years and his latest offering surpasses anything else he has produced.  This superb red wine is an enticing blend of Garnacha 50%, Mourvèdre 35%, Carignan 10% and Syrah 5%. The enticing aromas of forest fruits, cherry, raspberry and mulberry are laced with vanilla and tobacco nuances through to a rounded palate with a fine tannin structure and a persistent fruity finish.

South Africa and specifically Mulderbosch Winery gives us the Faithful Hound, a bit like Lizzie and her Corgi's who have been loyal to their role for decades. This phenomenal blend of Merlot 28%, Cabernet Sauvignon 25%, Cabernet Franc 24%, Malbec 17% and  Petit Verdot 6% give a classically styled, poised and elegant wine. Its brooding earthy aromas combine with brambly fruit and hints of cocoa with notes of forest floor. Underpinned by serious structure, the palate unfolds with fleshy ripe fruit, savoury notes, textured tannins and a beautifully nuanced finish. How about that for a tasting note!

We finish with the Time Waits For No ONE Stone Elephant Monastrell from Spain. This is a superb example of Monastrell, with its powerful and intense nose of ripe black fruits supported by subtle hints of spice from a deft use of oak. The vibrant fruit is rounded out with a savoury note and it shows great purity on the finish.

So there you have it, a Royal Selection fit for a Queen and all endorsed by myself The Wineman, saving your palate from sub-standard wines since 2000.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
