Save money on a selection of our signature wines
Working from home is a bit of a mixed bag. Some people find it terribly convenient, all too comfortable. They might be (whisper it) glad to see a little less of their colleagues. Others miss the hurly-burly, the cut-and-thrust of office life. Personally I find it means I just don't get out of the house enough. And then there are the trials of remote log-in, and being zoombombed during meetings by partners, pets and children.
Whatever your attitude to working from home, there's no denying that that glass of wine at the end of the day is more welcome than ever. But what to do if you no longer have office space adjacent to your favourite City-based wine merchant? No problem. For one thing, we are always delighted to arrange delivery of a case or two of whatever wines you fancy. And to save you time and money, and eliminate the agony of choice, we have put together a pre-mixed case of some of our signature wines, with money off AND free delivery.
So sit back, and pretend for a while that 'Zoom' is nothing more than the sound of a case of fine wines whizzing its way to you… /NT
Please note, we can arrange wine deliveries anywhere in the UK mainland in 1-2 days (now including Saturdays). And just one more thing, while we've got your attention... with increased online shopping and social distancing rules reducing capacity in courier hubs and delivery depots, the delivery supply chain is going to be more stretched than ever this year. So, with this in mind, please consider placing any Christmas orders you're planning as early as possible to ensure you get your wine in time for this year's festivities, whatever they may be!
£195 for the 12-bottle case: you save £36.55, including free delivery!
2019 Font-Mars Picpoul de Pinet: Lemon and apricot aromas give way to a bone-dry wine; the intense salty finish betrays it coastal origins. Picpoul is a distinctive local variety from down Montpellier way. Revisit your Mediterranean seaside holidays.
N.V. Le Soula Trigone Blanc No18: From the arid Agly Valley high up in the Pyrenean foothills comes this cool, complex white bursting with herb, flower and fruit. An aromatic delight.
2018 Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay: In New Zealand, Auckland estate Kumeu River are making Burgundy-beating Chardonnays, racking up the points in blind tasting competitions around the world. Their wines absolutely zing with energy. Intensely vibrant, the 2018 Estate Chardonnay is bursting with lime and peach.
2017 Clos des Rocs Macon-Loche En Pres Foret: From the sunny southern end of Burgundy, this is a beautifully balanced Macon with great length and a lovely finish. Think lime and green apple.
THE LIGHTER REDS
2018 Grace Bridge Pinot Noir: Warm, sweet aromas of raspberry, cranberry and cherry in this bountiful Californian Central Valley Pinot Noir.
2018 Grosbois Chinon La Cuisine de ma mere: Brothers Nicolas and Sylvain Grosbois needed a wine to grace their home table, so they made this. A delicious, food-friendly Chinon, with the classic Cabernet tang of blackcurrant and mint.
2018 Vincent Dureuil-Janthial Bourgogne Rouge: Vincent Dureuil-Janthial is widely hailed as the finest producer in Burgundy's southern region of the Cote Chalonnaise. Warm, perfumed fruit in a light but structured body make this a red wine to savour. Great with game.
2017 SRC Etna Rosso: Italy's Mount Etna is a treasure trove of old vineyards. SRC make a great example of the sort of wines typical of the mountain, smoky and perfumed, full of raspberry and cranberry fruit. Goes fabulously well with vegetable dishes.
THE FULLER REDS
2019 Roger Sabon Cotes du Rhone: the Sabon family have been making wine in the southern Rhone for hundreds of years - and it shows! This Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah blend is juicy, supple and elegant - think plum and red cherry with a little kick of black pepper. Perfect for grilled meats.
2017 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico: this is textbook Chianti, with red cherries and violet with a hint of mushroom and thyme. Lovely with meat-based pasta dishes like lasagne and tagliatelli Bolognese, or your artisan pizza.
2016 Foxglove Zinfandel Paso Robles: Zinfandel is the quintessential Californian grape variety, and the Varner Brothers' elegantly made Foxglove captures it perfectly: sweet fruit and spice, redcurrants, cherries and mocha. It's all happening down in Paso Robles.
2014 Chateau Biac B de Biac: Bordeaux is a big part of what we do, and this is a lovely example from Cadillac, in the south of the region. Plummy Merlot fruit with a touch of spice, cedar and the cigar box.
