Squerryes Brut 2013. (winner of Gold at the 2019 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships) Patience and joy are two principles that sum up Squerryes and the 2013 sparkling Brut most certainly reflects this. Lovely mousse, complex nose, integrated, rounded, ripeness of fruit with savoury notes.

Oxney Organic Rosé 2019 – a superlative example of an organic rosé, proving that organic wine can be very, very good - raspberries and pear on the nose, fresh and bright, full of joy.

Simpsons Roman Road 2019 (following on the 2018 winning Best in Show at the Decanter awards) – cedar spice, lemon and white peach notes with a little bit of dairy and with a graceful and long palate.
