Excellent service and very good value for money. Never had any issues with my orders. Everything is always delivered on time and in good condition. The choice of wine is compelling and the recommendations are usually really really good. Excellent value for money as well. Highly recommended!

91 pts Tom Cannavan - Medium tawny/gold colour. Seems a bit flabby and displaying too much flat oxidation at first, and a teacake fruitiness only emerges reluctantly. The palate has a biscuity richness and quite a thick texture, with plenty of sweetness. There's a lot of warmth and a Demerara sugar depth and toffeed sweetness here, but the grapefruity acidity is tangy and precise into the finish.

86 points - Cossart Gordon Vintage Verdelho 1975

The 1975 Verdelho is missing a little clarity on the nose, with touches of hot buttered toast, spice and dried orange peel. It appears rustic at the moment. The palate is better with a rounded, viscous entry that is matched by piercing acidity. It is not a particularly complicated Verdelho, but it is harmonious, light on its feet and focused with a light honeyed, resinous finish that exhibits a little distracting volatility.
