Vines flourish in the Languedoc, a region where grapes delightfully ripen during the long sunny days. The result is fruity grapes of exceptional quality that our winemakers carefully select to produce the Little Long Dog wines, something we are proud to bark about! For this rosé, the gentle pressing of the grapes is done over a two hour period, resulting in a pale pink juice which doesn’t need further maceration for colour.
Pale pink with scents of fresh strawberries, raspberries and cream, the soft round palate fills out with a surprising weight and persistence as the flavours linger on the tongue. This is an easy-drinking wine with a slightly dry, tangy finish.
Take it easy, relax and enjoy a glass chilled with some shellfish and pretend you’re in the delightful vineyards of southern France. Maybe a dog’s life isn’t so bad after all.

Tempranillo grapes are kept on the skins for 8 hours in order to achieve a delicate ‘rosy’ colour; cold fermentation temperatures ensure that the vibrant berry characters and fresh acidity are preserved.
Vibrant berry fruit on the nose, with abundant redcurrant and raspberry characters, and a bright twist of rhubarb acidity. Deliciously approachable and gently textured.

Eduardo Garrido's family-run winery only makes a Gran Reserva in the finest years with the best grapes. They have not made another since 2004 and Tilley's Wines bought the last of Eduardo's cellar.
Our Gran Reserva wine is characterised by its cherry colors with hints of terracotta and a clean, bright medium body. The nose offers intense aromas with hints of balsam and ripe fruit. The wine enters the mouth smoothly and cleanly, and finishes freshly and elegantly, with well developed tannins.
This wine is aged for 24 months in American and French oak, decanted periodically in the cellar, and given an additional 36 months to refine in the bottle before it was released.
Larrades Crianza is the latest wine from Bodegas Ciceron we have added to our portfolio. Being a Crianza, this means the wine has spent some time in oak and in this case, 14 months in barrels of 225 litres of French oak, followed by 8 months in the bottle.
Expect cherry-red hues in the glass. The aroma is red fruits, strawberry and raspberry and a little blackberry with soft notes of vanilla, cocoa, coconut and anise.
The palate is soft, warm and creamy (does anyone remember strawberry swirls?) with roasted coffee notes. This is a round wine with body and a long finish.
