Here is a list of wines we have loved in 2019, wines we drink ourselves, and all drinking awesomely right now. If you haven't tried them yet, we really hope you get to soon. Enjoy!
Kwoff Top 10 wines for 2019:
10, Cloud Factory - Sauvignon Blanc, Marlbourgh, New Zealand. £8.99.
Our biggest selling white wine in the shop. A classic Marlbourgh Sauv Blanc, we love this wine. Its awesome when watching Tv. A Tv wine, you don't have to think about it, its just great. Gooseberry, fresh, and zesty.
9, Cline Cellars Zinfandel Lodi California. £12.49.
A firm favourite of David's. Lovely cherry/strawberry notes, full body, and velvet going down. We met the wine maker at a tasting, and gushed at how good his wine was. Also does a damn fine Red dessert wine too!
8, Tocco Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Abruzzo , Italy. £14.99.
Brand new to Kwoff. An instant classic! Ripe red fruit, some spice, dark chocolate and violet. This was the biggest seller at our xmas tasting to 230 people in December. Organic, lovely, just buy it. Its awesome.
7, Kardos Dry Furmint, Hungary. £10.99
Dry and beautifully crisp, complex and elegant. One of Natasha's favourite wines in the whole shop. A rare find at a trade tasting, Natasha really pulled this one out of the hat. Everyone that loves dry wine comes back once tasted. Big love to this wine.
6, Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre, France. £17.99.
Great vintage. Simply drinking fine right now. It will be on our Christmas table this year. Classic Sancerre.
5, Riecine, Chianti Classico, Italy. £23.99.
Just yes. We have had this wine on several tastings this year, and it has always been the biggest seller. Whether in the shop, or on the ELR dining with distinction meals, people love this wine! Easy and smooth, great with white meats, or lamb. Stunning wine.
4, Feudo Antico Rosso Tullum DOP, Italy. £15.9.
Jeanette's wine of the year. David recommended this after having a bottle himself, she has had several more since. "That wine was amazing!" and that is a strong statement if you know Jeanette. Strong and awesome, the wine is good too. Big, smooth, fruity, Red.
3, Wildeberg Terroirs Chenin Blanc, South Africa, £14.99.
The Kwoff fathers Peter wine of the year. Sourced by Natasha and David, we couldn't wait to show this to Peter. He knows his Chenin Blanc, and he loved it! Every visit, he goes home with one. Beautiful, soft, gracious, and moreish. This wine should be £24.99+. We love it.
2, Baglietti Rose Spumante No 7, Sparkling Wine, Italy. £13.99.
We cannot get hold of this wine quick enough! It just keeps selling out. The etched bottle is to die for. We initially turned this wine down, as we thought that if the bottle was so nice, its making up for a crap wine, boy how we were wrong. We should have tasted it there and then. The juice inside the bottle is even better. An instant classic with Kwoff. We have actually had people queue when a delivery came in for this! Biggest selling Sparkling Wine at the Xmas tasting to 230 people. Just try it. You will love us for it.
1, Biscardo Neropasso Originale Rosso Veneto, Italy. £9.49.
Simply our biggest selling wine of the year. And there is a reason, its amazing. For under a tenner, best wine bar none. Like a mini Amerone. Great body, nice sweet top note, cherry, black fruits, but just drinks like velvet. So good. We do drink this wine ourselves, and we are proud to recommend it to anyone and everyone. We believe in this wine, we know how good it is. Red at its best.
We hope you enjoyed our Top 10 list, and let us know if any of the wines you love we have missed off the list. A huge thank you for coming to us for Wine, beers, gin, whisky, or just a nice chat. We love you tons and hope that isn't cheesy. Xo
