SOUTH AFRICA

The Rothschild wine legacy began in 1868 when James de Rothschild purchased Bordeaux’s Château Lafite – an estate which was already synonymous with the finest wines of the region. Over a century later, his grandson, Baron Edmond, set out to create South African wines with the same level of renown. With the help of local businessman Dr Anton Rupert, he began producing blends in Franschhoek using the same traditional grape varieties found in Bordeaux. And it wasn’t long before the world took notice. Today, the estate is managed by the next generation of both families – and their wines continue to attract international acclaim. This is made predominantly from Merlot and is matured for over a year in French oak. Discover juicy flavours of raspberry, cherry and plum, with notes of forest floor and toasty oak spice. A hint of smokiness makes it a wonderful choice for roast duck.

All we ask for is a £1-per-glass deposit, payable in advance when adding glasses to your order.
When the glasses are returned to us clean and ready for re-use, the deposit is fully refunded– all you pay for is breakages.
And since you have paid a deposit, there's no time limit in which you have to return them.
To request glasses when you order online, simply place your order online, then contact your local store, quoting your order number.

Opened a 2016 vintage bottle last night that I had laying down for two years and it was really very enjoyable, honestly one of the best bottles I’ve had in quite a while, lovely complex aroma and very smooth and easy on the palate.

Bought 6 bottles discounted to £13-99. Really disappointing and lacks fruit and any complexity. Perhaps a £7 bottle of wine but ridiculous at the full price of £20!

Really nice wine on a par with Chocolate Bloc but at a more affordable price for everyday drinking rather than just special occasions.
