You‘ll Never Walk Alone is perhaps the most famous song in football, and is heard before kick-off at every Liverpool match at Anfield and has been adopted as the Football Club’s anthem.

On the nose there’s bags of gooseberry, honeysuckle and orange blossom. This is a very light Sauvignon Blanc, with a delightful crispness. The grapes were picked early to retain the maximum acidity and greener fruit profile. On the palate there’s gooseberry and guava alongside hints of honey and orange peel. Lovely clean finish.
Dowie Doole’s Chenin Blanc is a great choice for those seeking an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. This is a vibrant and zesty wine with a crisp, dry finish. The alcohol at 11.5% is refreshingly low, too.
Sangiovese is a great food wine with its fascinating mixture of sweet cherry/berry fruit wrapped around a serious core of acidity & tannins. This is a stylish, medium weighted wine with a bold flavour and a persistent finish.
Premium Shiraz from McLaren Vale’s most visited and award-winning cellar door, Hugh Hamilton wines. Undoubtedly this is still a Shiraz but Hugh decided to harvest his grapes before over-ripening took place. It is not the general blackcurrant notes but more raspberry, licorice instead of plum – and yes, and olives instead of jam. There is oak there, too and French but it is in the background where it should be. A refined result!
We have just a few bottles left of this fine vintage and want to make way for more. This is a great value bin end opportunity!
If you’re a Riesling drinker you will love this release from the famed Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare Valley.
It’s pure lime and slate and it’s both up-front and reserved at once. It’s intense through the finish yet it feels watery and refreshing and cool minerality through the centre. It’s beautiful drinking but will cellar, too.
