Tűske Rozé£18.50 – £111.00750ml Bottles
A light and vivacious rosé from a high-altitude, windy plateau-like vineyard in the Szekszard region of southern Hungary. A blend of the local grape kekfrankos, along with merlot and pinot noir, it’s made using the “saignee” method. This involves “bleeding” the wine off from the skins after a very short period of contact, giving the soft rosé colour.
On the nose: An explosive scent of citrus fruits and fresh crushed strawberries, cherries and blood orange.
On the palate: Light bodied and elegant, with great balance of quenching acidity to the full flavour of fresh red fruits.
Recommended combination with food: Perfect with chicken nicoise salad, salmon, charcuterie board, feta, spinach, or mint and quinoa tartlettes.
Serve at 10 – 12°C
GRAPE VARIETY – Kékfrankos, merlot, pinot noir
PRODUCTION AREA – Szekszárd,Hungary
ALCOHOL – 12.5%
Verdeca Salento£11.75 – £70.50
Verdeca is a relatively rare white wine grape variety from southern Italy, now found almost exclusively in the Taranto and Bari provinces of central Puglia (it is easily confused with the similarly named Verdea, an equally rare variety from Tuscany). While it is typically used as a blending grape there are a handful of modern producers who are experimenting with varietal Verdeca wines in order to raise its profile – generally speaking, it is difficult to make a great wine from 100% Verdeca.
On the nose: Its bouquet is surprisingly intense and fine with a scent of apricot, flowers and rosemary
On the palate: its balance between freshness, sapidity and alcoholic tenor is perfect. Lovely and persistent, the citrusy and lightly balsamic final creates harmony to the taste
Recommended combination with food: It pairs best with light risotto, buffalo mozzarella cheese, or more traditionally “pancotto” with vegetables, orecchiette with turnip greens, puccia with onions and even olives.
Serve at 18°C
GRAPE VARIETY – Verdeca
PRODUCTION AREA – Puglia
ALCOHOL – 13.0%
VIÀCH MÜLLER THURGAU D.O.C.£17.95 – £107.70750ml Bottles
Corvée was a French term used in the Middle-Ages to describe the activities and work of the Vassals, who would work on the land of superiors for free in return of shelter and protection. This is how 400 Km of terraced cultivations originated in Val di Cembria.
On the nose: The aroma is decisively floral and reminiscent of white flowers as well as fresh apple and pear.
On the palate: Apples and pears, with a striking tartness and well rounded acidity. Great body and hints of tropical fruits
Recommended combination with food: A great partner for:
- Montasio cheese tart (“frico friulano”)
- Thin-sliced octopus drizzled with sudachi
- Prawns steamed in banana leaves
Serve at 8-10°C

Zibibbo NORMANNO I.G.T.£14.50 – £87.00
The word “Zibibbo” is derived from the Arabic word ‘zabib’ meaning raisins. The wine was originally from Egypt and was introduced by the Phoenicians when they landed in Pantelleria, a tiny island situated between mainland Sicily and the northern tip of Africa. Over time, vines of Zibibbo were planted in mainland Sicily, namely in the famous area of Marsala for its very similar terrain and geometry. The grapes have similar aromatics to that of Moscato but are left on the vine until slightly shriveled (a sign of partial fermentation) and then are left to dry in the sun. The result is an elegant and harmonious dessert wine that is the ideal accompaniment for typical Sicilian cakes, especially those with a ricotta cream base.
Recommended combination with food:
- Sicilian cakes
- Cream based desserts
- Ice cream and fruit desserts
Serve at 8° – 10°C
GRAPE VARIETY – Moscato d’Alexadria
PRODUCTION AREA – Sicily, Italy
ALCOHOL – 16.0%
