Llumí Rosat 2018, Celler Alimara, Spain (Six Bottle Case)
This wonderful wine has been a revelation since it joined our guest wine range last year. Part of the Llumí range from Cellar Alimara in Terra Alta, Spain, this wine is produced using fruit from the highest altitude vineyard in the region. All of the Llumí range have scooped medals including having a silver medal at the Global Rosé Masters. Hand-harvesting, controlled fermentation, and small batch production is carried out to ensure wines with great purity, focus and balance.
A deeply coloured rosat with plenty of silky red fruit and a long intense finish. There’s plenty of rich strawberry fruit and pomegranate with peripheral notes of rose hips and cream. This bold yet delicious rosé possesses a creamy texture and wonderful freshness. Best described as strawberries and cream in a glass!
Enjoy as an aperitif, or serve with seared tuna.

Baron Philippe Viognier, Pays d’Oc IGP (Six Bottle Case)
£59.70Buy Our best selling white wine of 2019! This reliable and characterful Viognier possesses a pretty nose of apricot, citrus and white peach mingled with a subtle floral character. The palate has rich stone fruit, alongside a subtle almond character. This vintage has weight and texture whilst remaining clean and fresh. All of the wines in this range are matured in stainless steel which enables the retention of fresh juicy fruit without the presence of oak. A crowd pleaser with true varietal character.
La Xispa Selecció 2017, Terra Alta Spain£29.95 Buy It is reserved at first, then after a little aggravation in the glass it is clear that this is a special wine. It's ripe but never juicy, rich but never heavy. Clever winemaking indeed. Only 175 cases were made in 2017 and La Xispa offers balance, length and complexity well above its price point. A pre-fermentation cold soak and judicious oak management lend freshness and a beautiful balance. Blackberry, figs, coffee, mocha and toast on the nose with layers of gorgeously rich fruit with just the right amount of acidity, tannin and oak. Great stuff.
