- We didn't think Joost could actually make a better Sancerre, but he has surpassed himself - and thanks to Angel funding and sharp buying of grapes by Joost, it's still a steal.
- This is crisp with a capital C and has a tightly packed bundle of explosive gooseberry fruit waiting to go off in the mouth that is offset by a really lovely minerality and an uber long finish. Just so, so drinkable.
- You can't waste a serious Sancerre like this. Splash out on some lobster or a big bowl of mussels to make the most of it.
- Jonathan is ridiculously talented and living in a house bordering the banks of Bordeaux. And how did he get there? By producing some of the most sensational Garagiste wines you'll ever taste.
- You'll taste the brooding, delightful depth of ripe fruit - simply packed with juicy, mouth-wateringly rich flavour. Jonathan sourced pristine fruit from outside his winery and aged it in 100% new oak, to take it from good to sublime.
- A (very famous) previous vintage of Jonathan's wine scored a whopping 100 Parker Points - and accolades just don't come any higher than that. Go and grab yourself a bottle while you can...
- In times before whizzy tech and gigantic steel tanks, grape juice was left to ferment on its own accord, spontaneously bursting into action when the conditions were just right. It's a technique winemaker Kobie Viljoen is passionate about, and the old-school method has given this Chardonnay its smooth, creamy, rich almondy flavour.
- To geek-out further still, Kobie can clearly define where all the flavours in his mouth-watering Chardonnay come from. Only half of the wine was oaked, which gives it its pale straw, with flecks-of-gold appearance. It's bursting with citrus fruit and juicy apple flavours from the grapes, and finishes soft and smooth with hints of delicious cinnamon, caramel and vanilla from some time spent in fancy French oak barrels.
- Global lockdowns have hit the family-run winery hard, but thanks to Angel funding, they can continue to source premium grapes from all over Western Cape and craft their high-end wines.
- Benjamin's family has made famous French Chardonnay for centuries. Thanks to you, he's able to keep this tradition alive, and make wine under his own name.
- Made mostly without oak to get the fullest flavors from these special French grapes, Ben says "Angels will be surprised by the fineness and elegance of our Chablis." With its deep, intense aromas and mouthwatering brightness, Ben adds, "Elegance and purity are the true words to describe our Chablis."
- This is true French Chablis– from its gorgeous pale gold color right down to its savory, elegant minerality. Due to recent extreme weather, area wines like this are becoming increasingly more rare– treasure it with a plate of fresh oysters while you can.
Christian Patat’s blockbuster Appassimento is one of our most popular wines of all time. And being a maverick, Christian jumped at the chance to share it with you in a brand new way.
Every cubic inch of this 2.25L box is packed with uber-delicious juice made using his famous ‘Appassimento’ technique, where he leaves the grapes to sunbathe in the southern Italian sunshine - sending the flavour through the roof. Think top-class Ripasso or Amarone but at a fraction of the price.
Every drop of this dark, brooding wine is jam-packed with tantalisingly intense fruit, and a lick of chocolate and spice, all wrapped up in a big oaky hug. Show up to a dinner party with this bad boy under your arm, and you’ll make boxed wine converts of all.
- We’ve made $5 million available to help struggling wineries to survive and come out the other side of this Covid crisis. The closure of bars and restaurants across the globe has been a disaster for the independent winemakers who supply them. The little guys, without connections to the big supermarkets, are the ones who are suffering the most.
- When Covid hit, South Africa’s strict lockdown dealt a huge blow to his small family winery. They previously sold 90% of their wine to restaurants and bars around the world - so the sudden global closures hit them hard. Reenen turned to us, and in one single order we rescued half of his winery’s annual production. It's been a total game changer for Reenen’s small business.
- This is Reenen’s flagship red. A mouthwateringly elegant and refined blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, handpicked from his very best plots. A match made in heaven for roast beef and all the trimmings.
There's a huge range of different soil types in Sancerre - which is why wines from this appellation are so different and unique to their vineyards.
The Roblin brothers want to show you that Sancerre from great terroirs doesn't need to be drunk within 2 or 3 years, but can age well for many years after that.
Their prized Sancerre has the perfect balance between fruit and minerality. Fresh, complex and elegant, with a nice length. It is a powerful yet fine wine.
- As the most widespread red wine variety in Austria, Zweigelt grows in favourable sites in nearly all of Austria’s wine regions. Since our soil is unique in Austria, and there are only a few spots in the world that show similar soil characteristics.
- Our grapes are handpicked, destemmed gently and strictly hand sorted. After sorting we gently fill our fermentation tanks by gravity, and wait for the natural yeasts, from the vineyard, to start fermentation.
- The variety brings slightly violet-reddish colored wines with soft tannins. Mature, full-bodied and long-living wines deliver notes of Morello cherry.
Stefan Landauer, Winemaker
Chablis is famous for super-exquisite white wines with gorgeous minerality and purity, and Premier Cru is the best of the best. Only very special parcels of grapes, of consistently jaw-dropping quality, get this distinction.
When you add an expert winemaker like Benjamin Laroche into the mix, whose family has been making first-class Chablis for centuries, you’ve basically reached the pinnacle of classy French white.
This luxurious Premier Cru is finely balanced with aromas of white flowers and pear, rounded out with delicate hints of toast and vanilla from a lick of French oak. Then on the palate, elegant white fruit flavours mingle with a rich minerality for a pure quality Chablis. It's next level.
