Sax, Fruhroter Veltliner, Niederosterreich, 2020

Frühroter Veltliner, a cross between Roter Veltliner and Silvaner, is one of those pinky-coloured grapes (like Pinot Gris) vinified as a white wine – but, tasted blind, easy to mistake for a rosé, as it has a distinctive if subtle, wild strawberry accent. With refreshing grapefruity bite and just a little savoury texture, it makes a perfect summer aperitif, inviting intriguing comparisons with both a crisp, dry Riesling and a red-berried rosé. Now-2022

Sax

A traditional winery in the Kamptal

The beginnings of Sax family's winemaking activity go back to the year 1660. Back then, wineries were run as a mixed farm. The average vineyard area was 1.5 hectares per farm. Up until the mid-1950s, vineyards in and around the Lengenfeld community in the west of Langenlois were cultivated by their ancestors.

Sax, Gruner Veltliner, Zwillingslauser, Kamptal, 2020

The Sax boys name one of their Kamptal Gruner Veltliners Zwillingslauser, which loosely translates as the naughty twins. We shipped it for the first time last summer; and now it's been praised twice in the press in the last month.
Not from a named vineyard - Zwillingslauser translates as "naughty twins" - but based on fruit from Ried Kittmannsberg, a warm south-facing site with granitic soils incorporating feldspar, quartz and mica. These retain heat well, which suits...

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world.

Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world. Look out for unoaked Chardonnay, it can make a pleasant change, and usually goes down very well with all those people who...

Artisan Wines, Sankt Laurent Pure, Burgenland, 2018

Sankt Laurent, or St. Laurent, is a dark-hued grape grown widely in eastern Austria and Czechia. Here it shows a frank scent of crushed hedgerow fruit; and then sappy, black cherry and blueberry flavours. Open, crunchy and uncomplicated; perfect for light chilling in summer and drinking with anything piggy from cured meats, a Scotch egg or roast ham – or cold roast chicken. Now-2024

Sankt Laurent

Sankt Laurent / St Laurent

St Laurent (sometimes written in French as Saint Laurent or in German as Sankt Laurent) is a highly aromatic dark-skinned wine grape variety.

Like many great traditions, its origins shrouded in mystery, St. Laurent is believed to have resulted from a crossing of Pinot noir with an unknown second parent.

Artisan Wines, Heideboden Rot, Burgenland, 2018

A blend of 55% Blaufränkisch and 45% Merlot, given 20 months in old oak, a joyous drink. The aromas are of red and black fruits tinged with vanilla; perfectly prefacing a juicy, mid-weight cocktail of red cherry and strawberry with a smoky edge.  Lots of vitality. A crowdpleaser. Now-2024

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
