Wines

We have a selection of about 120 wines, a collection mainly from smaller independent producers that you probably won’t find in any supermarket.

Paola has tasted, chosen and stands by every single one. To earn a place on our (very limited) shelves, each wine has to be a great example of its particular style.

These are all wines that she would buy herself and serve to friends at home.

We have wines from the old world and the new. Biodynamic, organic and minimal intervention wines plus artisan classics. Some wines that you’ll know and many you won’t and they are all ready for drinking now.

We try and keep the list as updated as possible, but it’s always worth giving us a call to check.

White Wines

Allende Rioja Blanco 2012 (Spain, £21.00) [Out of Stock]
Modern style of white Rioja. Very elegant. Like slipping into diamonds and cashmere.

André Dezat Sancerre Blanc 2015 (France £16.95)
Enlivening aromas of grass, nettles and lemons with a clean mineral palate, this is what Sancerre is all about. 

Argyros Assyrtiko 2015 (Greece, £20.00)
If you love a classy Chablis, you have to try this. Rounded but vibrant, mineral and smoky from vines on Santorini with an average age of 150 years. Seriously. 20% is matured in oak to give a little extra complexity. Worth decanting 30 minutes before drinking (keeping it chilled).

Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc 2015 (South Africa £11.95)
Soft apples and lemon peel, intense but fresh and dangerously drinkable!

La Bastide Viognier 2015 (France £11.50)  
A fleshy, lively, lightly aromatic wine with notes of fresh apricots and lemons. A good match for oriental dishes (but tasty on its own, too).

Emil Bauer Bullshit Grauburgunder 2015 (Germany £14.50)
So much more than boring Pinot Grigio. Behind the cheeky label there’s a really tasty little wine. This is fun and very VERY moreish.

Emil Bauer Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll Riesling 2015 (Germany, £14.50) [Out of Stock]

A brilliantly flinty Pouilly-Fumé that refreshes the parts that many other Sauvignons just can’t reach

A super-juicy but crisp blend that has orchard flavours, a citrussy finish and aromatics from Sauvignon Blanc.

Chateâu Coujan Cépage Rolle 2015 (France £11.50) [Out of Stock]
A downright delicious blend from the Languedoc. An ample body with a fresh personality, clothed in some deft, spicy oak. It’s the new Rock n Rolle. (Ok, so there’s also Grenache Blanc and Roussanne in there too…) Organic.

Ciello Bianco Catarratto 2014 (Italy, £8) [Out of Stock]
Crisp, bright, refreshing lemony flavours with a blossomy backnote… and it’s cloudy! It’s unfined and unfiltered. Organic with a moderate amount of SO2 added. 

Ch. Dereszla Dry Tokaji 2014 (Hungary £13.50) 
A Park+Bridge best seller. A blend of primarily Furmint with around 15% Hárslevelű, this is a dry wine with a satisfyingly rounded, textured mouthfeel and uplifting finish. We’ve even converted non-white wine drinkers to it!

Eschenhof Holzer Roter Veltliner 2014 (Austria, £12.95) [Out of Stock]
Unrelated to its more famous Gruner compatriot, this Roter Veltliner is intense, spicy and fresh. Great with meaty fish (lobster, monkfish) and schnitzel. Of course…

Creamy and dreamy yet crisp. But with a light peppery kick on the finish. 

Felicette Grenache Blanc 2015 (France £9.50)
It’s got cats in spacesuits on the label. So frankly, who cares what’s inside the bottle? OK, we do. We don’t sell rubbish. It’s a fruity little Pays d’Oc that is the perfect BBQ glugger.

Giacomo Fenocchio Roero Arneis 2014 (Italy £15.95)
A stylish Piedmont white that reminds us of lemon curd, mouth-filling and creamy with a zesty lift and a nutty finish.

Le Grappin Mâcon Villages 2015 (France £18.95) [Out of Stock]
Business-class Mâcon made by a big Aussie on a small scale. Trust us – it’s deelish.

R Lopez de Heredia Vina Gravonia White Rioja 2006 (Spain, £19.50) [Out of Stock]

Keermont Terrasse White 2014 (South Africa £21.95)
Buttered popcorn, ripe apricots and honeysuckle in this toasty, luxurious Chenin blend. Share, if you must.

Morgadio da Calçada MC White 2013 (Portugal, £14.95) [Out of Stock]
Dirk Niepoort oversees the wines made here. This is a charming field blend of six grapes with appealing lightly floral aromas and a textured mouthfeel despite its 12.5% ABV. 

R. Palacios Louro Godello 2014 (Spain, £18.50)
Lush, creamy, rich fruit, a supple buttery texture and a mineral lift on the finish. A Spanish take on a Macon if you like. And we like very, very much.

Penalva Dao Indigena Blend  2015 (Portugal, £8.95)
If you love a big, fruity, Sauvignon then this wine is NOT for you. Sorry. However, if you like a dry, crisp, mineral aperitif… BINGO! The perfect fridge-door white.

Fleshy and buttery with a bit of oak. This elegant Chardonnay is a class act.

Tornai Zenit 2013 (Hungary £10.50)
“Zenit is a cross between Bouvier and Ezerjo”. Come again? What we do know is that this makes a great alternative to Picpoul, if a bit more floral. Good with mackerel, beetroot and pickles, apparently.

Vinteloper Watervale Riesling 2013 (Australia, £22.50) 
Fine boned, super dry, lean and so refreshing. Everything you want from a top class Clare Valley Riesling. A lovely whiff of petrol too…
