2015 Price List

Sadly, the Trout Wine Shop closed for the last time on Saturday 25th January 2014.  However, although the shop has gone, the website lives on and I continue to offer an interesting and personal selection of wines for sale.  Since browsing my shelves is no longer an option, I hope to make it easier to browse "virtually" by including photographs.  If you would like to be advised when the new, improved, version of the website is up and running, please email me.

Now that the shop has closed it will still be possible to call and collect wine from The Trout but, as my stock will not be stored here in future, advance warning of a visit is advisable, preferrably by email.  Glass hire will still be available for parties, again by prior arrangement.

As before, screw top wines are marked with the initials ST


We are delighted to quote prices for delivery to any part of the UK mainland which, wherever possible, will be on our own vehicles but we cannot guarantee either speed or cheapness!  Please do ask - you may be surprised.  See below for details.

Wine continues to be what this list is all about - wine that has been selected because it is interesting, enjoyable and which, while offering good value for money, is not included because it fits an arbitrarily set 'price point'.  Nearly three quarters of the wines in this list fall between £6 and £12 per bottle because this is where, I believe, the best value is to be found.  These are wines that I am passionate about - I hope you will share that passion.

Please note:  the discounted prices in the main list apply to mixed and unmixed cases.  And if, heaven forbid, you decide that you do not like a wine you have bought from me, I will happily exchange unopened bottles.

South Africa White    
I am so enthusiastic about Cape wines that they are now listed in first place
   
     
  False Bay Wild Yeast Chenin Blanc 2013  Western Cape
ST
7.70
6.95
Possibly my favourite Chenin Blanc.   Consistently good - rich and apricoty    
New False Bay Chardonnay 2013  Western Cape
ST
7.70
6.95
A new addition to our range.  Unoaked with nice ripe fruit    
New Curator's Choice White Blend 2014  Swartland
ST
9.65
8.70
An intriguing blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Semillon made by Adi Badenhorst, one of South Africa's most innovative and charismatic wine makers    
Signal Cannon Chenin Blanc 2013  Voor-Pardeberg, Paarl
ST
9.75
8.80
Drier and more austere than the False Bay with hints of Granny Smith (apples, one assumes)    
Simonsig Gewurztraminer 2012  Stellenbosch
ST
9.90
8.90
Described as 'Special Late Harvest' on the back label, this isn't quite a pudding wine but is full of luscious spicy Gewurz fruit.  A bit of a treat    
  Spice Route Sauvignon Blanc 2014  Darling
ST
11.50
10.35
Truly intense, both on nose and palate.  Real depth and zing.  Brilliant    
Vondeling Sauvignon Blanc 2013  Coastal Region
ST
11.35 10.20
Another great vintage.  Clean crisp and fresh    
Vondeling Chardonnay 2013  Voor-Paardeberg, Paarl
ST
12.99
11.80
Proving increasingly popular with those who like subtly oaked old world style Chardonnay    
New The Tea Leaf Chenin Blanc 2013  Piekernierskloof
ST
12.99
11.70
I've never tasted a Chenin Blanc quite like this!  The name derives from the rooibos tea plants that grow close beside the vines and impart their own flavour to the wine    
     
South Africa Red    
       
 
   
     
 

Percheron Shiraz / Mourvèdre 2013  Western Cape

 

 

 

 

ST

7.30
6.55
  New vintage.  Still on great form - Rhone style wine with lots of fruit and real quality.  Exceptionally good value for money    
 

Percheron Old Vine Cinsault 2013  Western Cape

ST
7.30
6.55
Slightly lighter than the above - another very interesting wine    
  Forge Mill Shiraz Cinsaut 2012  Coastal Region
ST
7.40
6.65
Popular blend and the spelling of Cinsaut is not a typo (both spellings seem allowed!)    
New Darling Cellars Cinsaut / Cabernet Sauvignon 'Terra Hutton' 2012  Darling
ST
7.50
6.75
More Bordeaux than Rhone - a very drinkable combination    
New Darling Cellars The Chairman's Blend 2012  Darling
ST
7.50
6.75
Great value blend of Shiraz / Mourvèdre / Cinsaut.  Rhoneish (as you'd expect)    
New Withington Wines Malbec 2013  Western Cape
ST
7.50
6.75
It seems that Argentina isn't the country that can produce drinkable, modern Malbec    
  False Bay Vineyards Pinotage 2012  Western Cape
ST
7.65 6.90
Very good 'modern' style Pinotage - not too heavy
  Forge Mill Pinotage 2011  Coastal Region

  Spice Route Pinotage 2009  Swartland
11.20
9.99
Special occasion wine, perhaps, but what a wine!  Packed with glorious flavours of chocolate and coffee.  Totally different to any other Pinotage - world class!
  Vondeling Baldrick Shiraz 2012  Voor-Paardeberg, Paarl
ST
11.35 10.20
  Don't be put off by the jokey name - this is a serious wine (or should that be 'cunning'?)    
  Spice Route Grenache 2012  Swartland 11.70 10.55
  In the short term replacement for the Mourvèdre which is now back in stock (see below).  It is really juicy and plummy - great fun!    
  Spice Route Mourvèdre 2013  Swartland 11.70 10.55
  Quite a leap vintage-wise, from 2009 to 2013 but another wonderful wine that will repay keeping a while    
  The Cloof Cellar Blend 2009  Darling
ST
11.70 10.55
  Worth buying for the description on the label - a mighty blend of this and that....    
New Donkiesbaai Pinot Noir 2013  Witzenberg
23.80
21.40
OK, yes, it's expensive but this is serious Pinot Noir, made from grapes grown in the highest Pinot Noir vineyards in South Africa.  It will rival the best from Burgundy, without question
