Soumah, Burgundies, Argentina and more.

Independent Wine Retailers review

Restaurants get reviews all the time - some good and some less good. Very rarely do retailers get reviewed. One wine distributor decided it was about time someone talked about independently owned wine retailers and wrote about a few that she saw as good stores. We are very pleased to be included!

Wine of The Week

Soumah Shiraz 2010

For those who missed the Soumah tasting last Friday night, you missed some great wines. The one that is best drinking in this cold weather is the Shiraz. A medium bodied style - elegant and full of flavour. Think plums, black cherries and allspice with hints of violets and citrus peel. The tannins are very fine grained and stunningly integrated into the fruit of the wine. the complex flavours stay in the mouth for ages!
Excellent drinking now but with a good cellaring potential of easily five years.
$33.95 or cheaper for buys of 6 bottles or more


Burgundy lovers - contact us quickly

We have been offered small quantities of Burgundies ranging from Village wines through to Premier and Grand Cru - current vintage and vintages ranging back to 2002. The producers are Pierre Bourée, Pascal Marchand and Domaine Jean Féry.

Pierre Bourée is a family owned vigneron who owns a few select vineyards as well as buying grapes from other vineyards. Their wines are very traditional in style (aging in old oak casks, no destemming) and are made to live.
Pascal Marchand is a Canadian who only arrived in Burgundy in 1983. He quickly gained a reputation as an excellent winemaker at Domaine des Comte Armand and Domaine de la Vougeraie.

Domaine Jean Féry is a fourth generation family owned estate with 10 hectares of vines. Pascal Marchand assists in the winemaking.

These wines are very limited!! Some had only 6 bottles brought into the country. Contact us quickly for a list of what is available.
