A contemporary style Rioja showing Tempranillo at its best, only grapes from 15-20 year old vines are used. The wine is aged for 12 months in American oak. Vibrant ruby red, the palate is amazingly juicy and fresh with lively raspberry and vanilla flavours. The aroma gives tasty notes of new oak against a background of refreshing fruity hints. The fresh acidity serves to balance the alcohol and tannins resulting in a harmonious wine. Great with fish in sauce, as well as white meat and medium-cured cheeses.
Scoring 90/100 Parker points and from the outstanding 1989 vintage "This was one of the few wines where the 1989 was the superior offering. The richest, sweetest, and fattest of the 1989 vintages, it offers a pure nose of pineapples, full body, and excellent concentration." Drink now - 2028. A super anniversary gift!

Scoring 88/100 Parker points, this super red wine from the outstanding 1982 vintage "is proving to be one of the most pleasant surprises of the vintage. Recent bottles have been beautifully rich, with classic blackcurrant fruit intertwined with scents of spice, herbs, and cedar. Full-bodied, with a lovely concentrated feel, this is the richest Gloria since the tannic '75 and glorious '70. When it was young, it was just a big ball of juicy fruit, but it has developed well."

The simply stunning organic dry white wine from Chateau Guiraud - a 1st growth Chateau in Sauternes. The grapes for this exceptional sémillon/sauvignon blend were picked on three separate occasions to ensure optimum ripeness and then aged in oak barrels that had been used for their Sauternes. Xavier Planty, head of the Chateau described the wine beautifully and very accurately: "The wine has outstanding balance: a nose of citrus, exotic and white fruits. On the pallet, the wine is full with an incredible length, spice, is well-structured, mineral, tight… Definitely yes, 2015 is a great vintage." Xavier Planty We tend to be relatively picky about our Bordeaux Blancs and this is the best dry white Bordeaux we have tasted for a long time – and very highly recommended.
