Bordeaux

  • Chateau Saint Florin Rouge 2016 $23.99 $19.99 Out of Stock
    Having known this particular Chateau for many years, we are surprised that we haven’t gotten around to importing it before. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from an exceptionally good vintage, the wine exhibits dark berry fruit, a touch of cassis and dust yet with lovely acidity, vibrancy and freshness. Drinking beautifully now, just let it breath for a good couple of hours so it opens up to come into its own. Magical!

  • Domaine Lafite Légende 2016 $26.99 $24.95
    From the famous Domaine Baron de Rothschild, a superb entry level Bordeaux from a great classic vintage. Made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, it shows a deep crimson colour with a nose that is intense, very expressive, dominated by fresh fruit aromas (red currant, raspberry) and blended with discreet notes of oak. Beautiful now but will also cellar for a number of years and definitely excellent value for money.

Bordeaux Haut-Medoc

  • Chateau Peyrabon 2016 $39.99 $34.99
    An all-time favourite of ours that we have been importing since 1998. Classic Haut-Medoc, full bodied and concentrated with a lot of ripe berry fruit, all together in a core of lovely acidity, composed, masculine and precise. After importing hundreds of Bordeaux over the years, this is perhaps one of our favourites in the sense of offering outstanding value for money and unrivalled quality at its level.

Bordeaux Medoc

  • Chateau Tour Saint Bonnet 2015 $34.99 $29.99 Out of Stock
    An old favourite of ours that we have been importing for many years. A classical Medoc with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the 2015 vintage that is just starting to drink beautifully now. Medium to full bodied and mineral with ripe berry fruit with hints of dry dust and lead pencil, structured and long with a wonderful finish. Give it a good hour to breath and it will open up beautifully! Cheers to that!
    ×
  • Chateau Loudenne Rouge 2015 $49.99 $39.95
    We have just received this magnificent 2015 from the Medoc. Chateau Loudenne is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it exudes power, concentration and depth yet very elegant, quintessential Bordeaux and given the superb 2015 vintage, this will develop for another 10 years easily. On appearance it’s bright and almost with a tinge of purple colour, hints of cassis, lead pencil and dust. Ideally better served decanted or at least it should be given a good 30-40 mins to open up and evolve. For lovers of classic Bordeaux, this is for you!

Bordeaux Saint-Emilion

  • Chateau Carteau Pin de Fleurs Grand Cru 2015 $59.99 $54.95 Out of Stock
    A small vineyard holding in the appellation of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru of approximately 7 hectares and classical Saint-Emilion varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and sometimes a little Petit Verdot. The wine is full bodied, very well layered with great texture, concentration and depth. On the palate it exhibits dust, dry earth, dry herbs and black truffle. Young at the moment with potential to age for the next 15 years plus.
  • Chateau Carteau Pin de Fleurs 2016 $34.99 $29.95 Out of Stock
    Made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a relatively small vineyard of around 14 hectares with an average vine age of 30 years, expression, terroir and definition is how you would characterize this Saint-Emilion. Soft, with an ample middle palate, supple tannins and great depth from a great vintage of 2016. Approachable now however will also cellar for the next 5-6 years.

Bordeaux Superieur

  • Chateau Tertre de Courban 2015 $17.99 $15.99
    This is new to us as in it has been the first time that we have imported it. 2015 was an excellent vintage that is starting to drink beautifully now and for an appellation Bordeaux Contrôlée, it over delivers compared to its price. Made from Merlot, it offers an array of ripe plum, a touch of raisins but yet with a beautiful lifted acidity, soft tannins and lovely balance. At its price it offers unbelievable value for money, frankly you could pay 50% more and still be very happy with it!
    ×
  • Chateau Lagrave Paran 2017 $26.99 $24.95
    As is always the case with Pierre Lafon, not a man known for a lot of talking so he just lets his wine do it all for him. Most of you will be familiar with this stunning Bordeaux, one of the first imports of Accent on Wine over 20 years ago. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, medium to full bodied with lovely lush and rounded tannins, concentrated and just beautifully balanced. For a Bordeaux Superior it punches well above its weight, it has power, concentration and depth with a lovely middle palate and beautiful finish. You could easily pay double for a wine of this quality. Drink now or over the next 5-6 years.

Burgundy

  • Vincent Prunier Bourgogne Cote d’Or Chardonnay 2018 $39.99 $36.99
    One of the quintessential signature wines from Vincent Prunier. Made from 100% Chardonnay, the wine exhibits typical terroir from Burgundy, medium to full bodied, creamy and soft with a touch of pure white cream yet an addition of mineral notes and just a touch of oak. Sumptuous Chardonnay that is drinking beautifully now or over the next 3-4 years.
    ×
  • Vincent Prunier Bourgogne Aligote 2018 $29.99 $24.99
    A variety that has been overlooked and under-represented in Burgundy for decades. Traditionally it can be added to some white Burgundy as they were however in recent times it has been made on its own and is achieving remarkable results. Floral and medium to full bodied with hints of white peach and tropical melon but yet with lovely racy acidity, richness and concentration. Wonderful depth and structure, it’s not a wine you will keep indefinitely in your cellar however very rewarding over the next 3-4 years.
    ×
  • Simon Bize Aloxe Corton "Le Suchot" Rouge 2018 $96.99 $89.99
    Frankly when it comes to value for money, this has to be one of the best Aloxe Corton that you can find. The wine is expressive and balanced displaying floral notes of thyme, wet leaf and hints of lavender. Medium to full body with beautiful texture with softly extracted tannins, balance and just perfectly focused. Wonderful wine and with a little patience another 7-8 years it will be magnificent!
    ×
  • Simon Bize Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru "Aux Guettes" 2017 $126.99 $119.95
    The 1er Cru Aux Guettes and Vergelesses are the two most revered and perhaps best within Simon Bize’s range. This is powerful and dynamic with a lovely bouquet of violets, spring flowers and rosemary, lovely supple tannins with vibrant fresh acidity. Beautifully constructed, silky with perfect balance. This will be marvellous within the next 10 years.

Chablis

  • Domaine Mosnier Chablis Vielles Vignes 2018 $49.99 $44.99
    Sylvain has a family estate of 37 acres of Chardonnay planted in a soil of clay, limestone and chalk, this is the old vines which is absolutely outstanding. It epitomises what real good Chablis should be. It is firm, lean, aromatic and complex with wonderful clean acidity showing outstanding minerality, freshness, purity and depth. Drink now or cellar for 3 to 5 years.
    ×
  • Domaine Laffay Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon 2018 $59.99 $54.99
    A relatively small vineyard quite elevated with an average vine age of 40 years and low yielding. This is a complete terroir expression of Chablis, nerve, vibrancy with racy mouth-watering acidity but yet with very good fruit weight and composure. 2018 provided another superb vintage from Chablis, low yields and a smaller production compared to other bigger vintages however we think it’s even better. More mineral, fuller body, in essence, a truer expression of Chablis. Cellar from 4 to 6 years.
    ×
  • Domaine Laffay Chablis 2018 $44.99 $39.99
    Classical Chablis this one, dry, mineral, crisp and bursting with freshness, clarity of fruit and medium body but always in balance, not austere or over-done. Laffay is one of those producers that stays the course, his approach is very much hands off when it comes to winemaking he prefers the vineyard to do the talking and this is very much reflected in the wine. It will evolve over the next 4 years or so as it is a little young at present but it will be worth waiting for.
    ×
  • Domaine Laffay Petit Chablis 2018 $39.99 $36.99
    One of the small growers that has sustained the traditions and classical style of Chablis. A superb offering of riverbed pebbles, chalk, dry stone, superb minerality yet displaying incredible freshness, focus and flintiness. One of the great characteristics of Chablis is that it is able to offer full bodied wines with length, concentration and depth without having to result to any oak or oak aging. Enjoy now or over the next 2-3 years. Ideal with white meats, fish and shell fish.

Loire Valley

  • Marc Bredif Vouvray 2018 $34.99 $29.95
    Marc Bredif is synonymous with producing outstanding Vouvray in the Loire Valley, this is the classic 2018, an excellent vintage which is just off-dry, full bodied, complex with slight hints of oiliness, profound and rich. Vouvray, made from Chenin Blanc, can be enjoyed now but this will also cellar for many years. Excellent with food or just on its own!
    ×
  • G.F. Cavalier Blanc de Blancs Brut N.V. $14.99 $12.99
    After being without it for almost 2 years, we welcome back this magnificent bubbly that has been with us for over 10 years. We get more requests for this than any other bubbly that we’ve ever stocked. And of course, once you try it, it’s quite understandable. It is an unpretentious, light, dry, very refreshing and crisp bubbly with lovely acidity, refined bubbles and ideal for big functions or just for the weekend! You can drink it on its own, you can mix it with orange juice, cassis etc. At the price it is unequal value for money.
    ×
  • Paul Louis Blanc de Blancs Brut N.V. $19.99 $17.99
    We also welcome back our beloved Paul Louis after being out of it for a long time. This is made from Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley and in the Traditional Method of Champagne, first fermentation and second fermentation in bottle, yeasty, rich and full bodied, with lovely refined and tiny bubbles, long bead and lovely balance. A great substitute for Champagne at a fraction of the cost. Something to be enjoyed on its own or also with fish, anti-pasta etc.

  • Chateau de L'Engarran Rose 2019 $26.99 $23.99

    ×
  • Chateau de L'Engarran Les Angelots Rose 2019 $24.99 $22.99

    This is marvellous and really beautiful! A blend of Grenache Blanc, and Roussanne, typical varieties from the Languedoc-Roussillon (Pays Catalans), it is fresh and crisp with lovely acidity and floral from the addition of Roussanne yet mineral and full bodied. This is ideal for Summer with lovely fresh fish and drank in the South of France such as Monaco.
    ×
  • Chateau de L’Engarran Rouge 2016 $34.99 $31.99
    From a good producer such as Chateau de L’Engarran, this is what Languedoc can do. A stunning, balanced blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouverdre, with hints of dry spice, garrigue and dry herbs which is full bodied, structured and balanced. Quintessential Languedoc, once you open the bottle it takes you there! 2016 is a pretty good vintage which is starting to drink beautifully now however for those with a little patience, it will keep rewarding you for the next 4-5 years.
    ×
  • Chateau de L'Engarran Sainte-Cecile 2017 $26.99 $23.99
    After more than 20 years importing this wonderful Languedoc, we’ve got to say that it gets better and better. Beautiful cherry colour packed with dark berry fruit, spicy, floral and with hints of garrigue, really what Langeudoc is. Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouverdre, it offers an array of dry spice intermingled with dry herbs with a core of minerality. Beautiful now or over the next 4-5 years plus.
    ×
  • Terres de L'Engarran Rose 2019 $19.99 $17.99
    Chateau de L’Engarran enjoys a tremendous reputation and history in the Coteaux du Languedoc rose is one of Chateau’s specialities. Made from Grenache and Syrah, this Rose is made from the juice that has seeped from the grapes without any artificial pressure. Beautiful wild salmon pink and onion skin colour with bright fresh aromas, hints of spice and beautiful texture. This is the kind of Rosé that you have on the veranda of a restaurant in Cannes or maybe Monaco with a salad nicoise.
    ×
  • Terres de L'Engarran Rouge 2018 $19.99 $18.99
    A new addition from this much acclaimed producer made from a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Grenache from the excellent vintage of 2018 which is full bodied and spicy with a typical expression of Languedoc in being perfumed and floral with hints of dry herbs and garrigue. On the palate it’s profound with lovely racy acidity, soft caressing tannins and a long finish. Excellent now but better over the next 3-4 years.

Lyon

  • Louis Tete Chiroubles Cuvée Melinard 2018 $27.99 $24.99
    This might not be familiar to many people as it is a particular appellation in Northern Beaujolais which overlaps the appellation Lyonnais. However common to both is the Gamay Noir grape variety. This not your usual Beaujolais, it’s bursting with fruit, lovely aromas of dark berry, rosemary and tarragon but still displaying almost the characteristics of a junior red Burgundy. Lift, acidity, structure and complexity and at the price we think is just outstanding. Drinking beautifully now or over the next 2-3 years. Recommended drinking temperature is 15 degrees.
    ×
  • Louis Tete Brouilly Le Chatelin 2018 $27.99 $24.99
    Our brand new arrival from this historical producer Louis Tete. Brouilly, a Cru Beaujolais exhibits fresh frontal fruit packed with berry notes bursting out of the bottle which is really what an excellent Beaujolais should be. Having said that, it also has an undercore of lovely acidity pinned by mineral notes and perfect balance. I think that you are going to like this because it’s true superb Beaujolais in a bottle. Beautiful now or over the next couple of years. Drink at about 14-15 degrees preferably.
    ×
  • Louis Tete Coup de Tete Rose 2018 $21.99 $19.99
    New to us on a fresh shipment of this stunning Beaujolais producer dating back to the 1800s. This is his Rosé made from Gamay Noir with very little skin contact, dry, crisp and lovely acidity with a fresh perfume like a spring of wild strawberry, rose petals and rosemary water. Full bodied yet beautifully light, refreshing and dry. It’s one of those Rosé’s that keeps coming back to you. Served well chilled is exactly what you would drink on a warm Summer evening while you are planning your trip to France!

  • Benoit Maillard Coteaux du Lyonnais Rouge 2017 $24.99 $19.99
    The much loved, much admired and much drunk by our beloved customers across the country, our Coteaux du Lyonnais 2017 has arrived! This is what true Gamay Noir should be, juicy, fresh, clean, eclectic and at the same time refreshing, satisfying and so easy to drink! We’ve said this before various times, at the price it over delivers, it’s consistent, it typifies what Coteaux du Lyonnais is, not Beaujolais but more restrained, less fruity and with a bigger punch.
    ×
  • Benoit Maillard Coteaux du Lyonnais Blanc 2018 $24.99 $21.99

    ×
  • Bruno Thierry Crozes-Hermitage 2018 $39.99 $36.99
    Completely new to us and to you, Crozes-Hermitage from the Northern Rhone, captures the essence of what Syrah is all about, white grounded pepper that gives way later on to black peppercorns with an infusion of black olive and tapenade. Full bodied, concentrated but yet with balance, young but something that in another 4-5 years will reward you generously. What proper Syrah should be!
