What a line-up for Sauvignons fans … the world’s luxury elite in one collection
No collection of elite Sauvignon would be complete without the iconic Cloudy Bay. It put New Zealand on the world wine map and still sends Sauvignon fans wild with delight. But it faces serious competition from Rapaura Springs – World’s Best Sauvignon … from the Kiwi Winery of the Year … made by the World White Winemaker of the Year. Then we head over to the Loire for a classic Pouilly-Fumé in Domaine Bel Air Cuvée des Papillons – this comes from a 13th-century family estate and has wonderfully fresh, bright citrus flavours and perfect balance. Last but not least is Domaine Michel Thomas Sancerre, for many the ultimate expression of Sauvignon. This 2018 has focus, freshness and minerality.

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
