Blend, Touriga Nacional
‘Drink Me’ Tinto, Niepoort
Touriga Franca,Touriga Nacional,Tinata Roriz andTinta & Amarela
Niepoort started making table wines (not Port) from Douro vineyards in the early 1990’s and have gone on to become one of the region’s leading lights, with Dirk Niepoort gaining a reputation as one of the World’s bet winemakers.
This ‘entry level’ wine is a firm favourite of ours; the eye-catching label means it always flies off the shelves but customers always return due to the quality of the wine in the bottle!
Medium-bodied, smooth and elegant, this is an easy-drinking version of the Douro that never disappoints.
A great wine for BBQ’s, pork and grilled or roasted vegetables. A versatile all-rounder.

Roqueterre Carignan ‘Vieilles Vignes’
A great value wine that shows that Carignan can make really interesting wines when old vineyards are involved.This is fresh and juicy with lots of berry fruit flavours; the perfect week-day wine which will pair nicely with steak, stews and chops.
Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Syrah
Grapes are sourced from vineyards in Hawkes Bay and Gimblett Gravels, where conditions are ideal for the production of premium Syrah. With beautiful aromatics of blackberry, spice, liquorice and black pepper, this long, elegant wine has fine tannins.A great steak wine!
Founded in 1993 by winemaker John Hancock together with Robert and Robyn Wilson, owners of The Bleeding Heart and The Don in London, Trinity Hill has become a byword for quality and consistency. Winemaker Warren Gibson has been with Trinity Hill since 1997. He is also in charge of the 80 hectares of vineyard owned by Trinity Hill and knows Hawkes Bay and the Gimblett Gravels exceptionally well. The wines reflect this. Warren and his team make wines that show the best of what Hawkes Bay and the Gimblett Gravels can produce. The wines have an elegance, balance, drinkability and precision of flavour that makes them a joy to drink.
Hilltop Shiraz, Clonakilla
Clonakilla are one of Australia’s most iconic Shiraz producers. Their flagship Shiraz/Viognier is amongst the countries best (available on request), however, this wine gives you a real insight into the genius of winemaker Tim Kirk at a fraction of the price. In fact, for drinking now, this wine is more approachable and rewarding than its big brother. Not as big and jammy as Barossa Shiraz, this has a slightly more Rhône-y edge to it, making it much more food friendly in my book. Still juicy and full of delicious dark, spicy fruit but with balance and restraint.
Chateau Larose Perganson
Lush and ripe, with aromas of blackberries, cassis, sweet spices and vanilla. Velvety tannins are balanced with excellent acidity. A delicious Bordeaux blend ready to drink now.
Cantele make some of the best value wines in all of Italy. Puglia (the heel of Italy), is a hot and dry region and makes for rich and powerful wines like this. The skill of the Cantele family is evident in the balance they achieve, food-friendly but smooth enough to glug on it’s own!
Fleurie, Didier Desvignes
Didier Desvignes is a winemaker who really epitomises the spirit of Beaujolais; he believes in treating the land with respect and nurturing each vineyard parcel to express its full potential. Everything is done by hand and farmed using organic treatments. The Gamay vines he has in Fleurie are on unique pink granite soils and make a wine of great purity and vibrancy. There are vivid aromas of violets and flavours of crushed wild strawberries and a herbal, savoury edge which makes it so good with charcuterie. You could be in a Paris wine bar, sipping natural wine and enjoying fine charcuterie, or you could be doing exactly the same at No2 Pound Street!
‘Lo Vielh’ Old Vine Carignan, Clos de Gravillas
Clos de Gravillas is an organic estate based in the tiny hamlet of St Jean de Minervois, deepin the Languedoc countryside. Here, John and Nicole Bojanowski make some of the region's most interesting wines. The Carignan vines that make this wine are from a high gravelly vineyard and are over 100 years old. This gives the wine real character, as if the vines have soaked up the minerals of the earth and the flavours of the surrounding Garrigue. This is a dark, powerful wine that is a perfect match for slow roasted, herby meats. Unique and beautiful, this is Southern French wine at it's best.
‘Bucerchiale’ Chianti Rufina Riserva 2019, Selvapiana
Bucerchiale is the name of Selvapiana’s finest vineyard in the small Rufina zone of Chianti. Organically farmed by the Giuntini family since 1827. 100% Sangiovese but more powerful than the Cepparello; still balanced with great complexity and a fine match for the best steak (Bistecca alla Fiorentina…)
