Now is the time to enjoy big, unabashedly luscious reds - the kind that grab you and won’t let go, lifting your body temperature and your spirits at the same time! When it comes to the amount of land dedicated to vineyards, Spain wears the crown as the most vine-swept country on earth. This mixed pack from Spain showcases 3 Spanish greats. Two from Northern Spain - Castilla y León & Rioja, and one from Southern Spain, Jumilla. All three wines are a natural fit with rich, succulent, slow-cooked dishes. This is Winter drinking at its best!
1. Parajes del Valle Jumilla Monastrell 2019
Maria Jover, a 28 year old winemaker heads up the thoroughly modern operations at Parajes del Valle. The organic Monastrell grapes come from very old vines (20-40 years old), organic, maintained from the old system of “Terraje”. Made from 100% Monastrell (Mourvèdre) this red wine is the perfect option for early Autumn barbecues. Youthful and exuberant, it is ruby red in colour with juicy notes of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry. Finishing with medium bodied tannins and a little spice, it packs plenty of punch!
2. Bodegas Exopto Rioja Bozeto de Exopto 2019
Bodegas Exopto is one of the new wave of modern winegrowers and quality wine makers in Rioja – Outstanding, well tended, cool vineyards on rocky soils, very old vines and low yields. The red 2019 Bozeto de Exopto is a blend of 50% Tempranillo from Ábalos with the Mediterranean touch of 40% Garnacha and 10% Graciano from Alfaro to add freshness. The grapes are nicely integrated and complement each other. A creamy, full-bodied red with plum and berry character. Nice purity of fruit to this. It’s full-bodied and layered with polish and beauty. Lovely tannins here. Drink or hold.
3. Matsu El Recio Tempranillo 2019
‘El Recio’ translates as ‘the tough guy’, and is a more serious, mature wine, made from the product of some of Toro’s oldest vines (90-100 years old), which are cultivated using advanced bio dynamic techniques. 14 months in new French oak provide opulence and polish. Intense and opaque, this wine is a mass of deep black fruit, chocolate, roasted coffee bean and vanilla pod aromas. Voluptuous and weighty, with a firm structure, held together by silky tannins.
Currently in season and locally grown - we now have these delicious and exotic Blood Oranges in store.

They're delicious in Campari and Sweet Vermouth cocktails or just as a garnish in your favourite gin.

Our flower department have received a large delivery of locally grown, fresh tulips in an array of beautiful colours. Tulips are sturdy flowers that can last up to 10 days after cutting if you know how to care for them correctly. When shopping for tulips, you may be tempted to buy the tulips with fully-opened, vibrant colored petals. If you prefer them to last a long time, choose tulips that are still tightly closed with some green buds that aren't fully coloured yet. The flowers will open over the course of a few days, giving you more time to enjoy them.
Mochi (pronounced MOE-chee) is traditionally a Japanese dessert that is made of sweet glutinous rice flour, or mochigome.

Each Mochi is individually made by hand, the Mochi dough encases fresh fruit and delicately whipped cream. This light, delicate dessert will have you coming back for more!

As the name suggests, the blend is an atypical 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Franc--meaning the wine has to carry the Vin de France designation. But who cares, it’s a stunning example of Côtes de Blaye, so blending regulations be damned! This is superb--an intense, ripe, dark cherry and anise spice-noted wine with super-fine tannins. There is excellent depth and intensity and mouth-watering freshness to close. This has fabulous purity of fruit and is incredibly easy to drink.
