Château La Mascaronne Rosé is an exceptionally fresh, balanced and organic Provence Rosé that expresses all the qualities of the terroir from which it is produced. It derives its quality not only from the grape varieties that comprise its blend but also from the soils on which the estate’s grapevines are planted. The blend for this rosé consists of Grenache (35%), Cinsault (35%), Syrah (20%) and Vermentino (10%) grapes, typical Provence varieties, which are all harvested at the height of ripeness. The wine’s luminous pink hue makes it immediately identifiable as a Provence wine. White peach, hawthorn flowers and citrus notes make for a beautifully refined nose, while the wine is suave, intensely and elegantly structured on the palate leading onto a long, delicate and fresh finish. When enjoyed young, Château La Mascaronne Rosé is delightful before or with a meal. But it is also marvellous after several years of ageing, a more unusual feat for a rosé wine.

The C.V.N.E. Company, or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja.
The crest emblazoned on the bottles of C.V.N.E Rioja's is essentially the Spanish flag. Not an aristocratic shield, or a single person's signature, but the nations national flag an honour bestowed upon the company back in the 19th century by Spain's Royal Family.
Today, C.V.N.E. is comprised of three wineries in Rioja: Cune, Viña Real and Contino. They also own the renowned Roger Goulart winery located in the world-famous D.O. Cava region, alongside new ventures in Ribera del Duero and Galicia.
Superb award winning wines produced by a team that have respect for tradition yet a commitment to innovate.

Benromach is a traditional Speyside distillery owned by a family of whisky-lovers intent on making single malt the right way with true character.
They keep things simple. A handful of distillers relying entirely on their expertise and senses to make the finest handmade whisky; Speyside single malt matured exclusively in first-fill casks, with a subtly smoky character. It takes just four ingredients – barley, water, yeast and a human touch.
All casks are hand-filled, individually weighed, stencilled by hand and stowed in the traditional dunnage warehouses. Why? Because at Benromach they believe making whisky by hand guarantees genuine character.
Award winning single Speyside Malt Whisky...
A wonderfully seductive cuvée made solely from fruit grown in Grand Cru classified vineyards. This is a Champagne with the consistency of a Non-Vintage, but the depth and complexity of a great vintage.
A blend of 50% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru villages in the Côte des Blancs and 50% Pinot Noir from Grand Cru villages in the Montagne de Reims, together with 4 years on its lees produces a wine with the elegant Taittinger style, a creamy mousse, fresh floral aromas and a long finish with a touches of ripe orchard fruit.
Prélude can be enjoyed as an aperitif but has the structure to match grilled fish and seafood.
This is an award winning fizz of great pedigree and value.
Biodynamic wine production is an approach to winemaking based upon the work of Austrian philosopher Rudolph Steiner. In addition to organic practices such as the exclusion of chemical or synthetic herbicides, fertilisers and pesticides, biodynamic farmers also consider the positioning and rhythmic influences of the sun, moon, planets and stars as guides for when to prune their vines, plant new vines or pick the fruit.
For winemakers the key principle of biodynamic wine production is totally logical. It makes no sense to extol the virtues on the geology of a vineyard, the unique aspects of its soil (its ‘terroir’) and what that imparts to the wine, if that soil is then totally transformed by a mixture of chemicals, herbicides and fertilisers. Healthy soil dictates healthy vines and experience has shown that biodynamic practices give rise to greater purity and precision in the resulting wines.
The Loxwood Meadworks Pure Mead is a crisp, refreshing and delicately sweet mead, that when served chilled, can be enjoyed like a white wine. Just as wine is made from grapes, mead is made from honey; however, unlike many other meads you may have tried before, the Loxwood Pure Mead is created using a unique blend of 100% British honey in the ferment - the process that makes the alcohol. It is fermented dry and then back-sweetened with honey, to give the most natural flavour and a delicate sweetness. This is really refreshing with a light honey flavour and smooth finish. You can enjoy Pure Mead chilled, just like you would with white wine, or alternatively, for a festive twist, warm it with spices to make a delicious Mulled Mead. Pure Mead is a great pairing with a cheeseboard, slow-roasted pork or ham or think anything you might have honey with!
The wine was absolutely delicious. Someone who was convinced he did not like Pinotage thoroughly enjoyed the wine. Big thank you to Andy and Michelle for their incredible service getting the 2018 wine delivered on time. Thanks once again for the extra bottle to drink to your health and excellent service. Thanks.
After placing my order, Andy contacted me to say the product was only partially available and offered me several options, including a full refund. His response time to my emails was really quick and, when sent, the wine arrived quickly. Not tasted yet but I’ve already had this one - it’s fabulous!
I only recently discovered Hic!, but it's obvious that they know what they're doing - one could order blindfolded and be guaranteed that the wines received would be good.
