Clean, fruity and wonderfully light on its feet, showing off the aromatic charm of the variety without being heavy or ponderous. It has a deliciously juicy texture and a delightfully delicate aroma of spice and fresh roses.
Villa Wolf Pinot Noir is warm and medium-bodied, with forward, dark cherry fruit, a firm structure and a spicy mid-palate. Six months of barrique aging gives it a smoky depth and a nice backbone of earthy tannins. Knocks much village Burgundy back into the Rhine without a splash!
Packed with intense, mineral-infused citrus flavours and a long concentrated finish. Kalkstein is the German for limestone and refers to the soil which gives the wine its distinct character. The selected, fully ripe grapes are carefully picked by hand, gently pressed and fermented in a controlled manner. Extended yeast storage for four months enabled a particularly elegant balance between acid, alcohol and sugar.
Aromas of apple, a little elderberry, mineral, some blackcurrant and riesling perfume. Dry taste, clear minerality, apple and citrus, high acidity, and an aftertaste dominated by minerality. Relatively young
Served chilled on its own, this Quince Gin is an ideal replacement for desert wines, especially if paired with apple crumble alongside a cheese board (Manchego especially). Because it is not technically a Gin (it’s not over 37.5% ABV) expect to see some name changes to comply with regulation, but whatever the final name written on the bottle is – seek this out, it is well worth it! Ridiculous and delicious.

Krombacher’s journey to the top has been attributed for the most part to the success of their pilsner. However they do not have just one beer. In, in fact much more recently in 2007, Krombacher released their weizen beer into the world. Stronger than the pils at 5.3%, it is an amber coloured wheat with a classic haze from the yeast making the texture cloudy. It contains Krombacher’s locally sourced spring water and has Hallertau hops and wheat, caramel and barley malts. A pure yeast strain and a full fermentation guarantee a wheat taste like no other. The aroma is that of banana and honey, courtesy of the malts and the taste is mild and soft whilst bursting with flavour. This can be served around 8 °C and can accompany lighter dishes such as seafood and salads as well as poultry.
Founded in the 1840's, Jever typifies the very dry style of pilsener from Friesland in the north-west corner of Germany and this remarkable beer is lagered for an impressive 90 days. Although only a small brewery, the 'Friesische Brauhaus zu Jever' has become a top brewery in Germany producing this extra dry pilsener. It's also one of the most bitter, hoppy lagers in the Germany, as indicated by 'herb' on the label. Because the Friesland water is very soft, Jever can add more hops when brewing to create the rather different taste.
