Low-lying Essex has witnessed the steepest rise in reputation of any of England’s burgeoning wine regions. A county itself largely composed of clay, gravel and sand that has been dragged and deposited from elsewhere. Is now a home-from-home to a winemaking culture that only recently crossed the Channel. Long, dry summers give Essex a head… Continue reading Libertine

Circo Prosecco

Circo Prosecco is a vibrant and complex sparkling wine with spectacular freshness. It wonderfully reflects our close collaboration with local producers, made using grapes from native vines, with roots that date back to ancient Rome. Its captivating character is evocative of the Circo Massimo; Latin ‘Largest Circus’, where the world’s biggest and most impressive spectator… Continue reading Circo Prosecco


The Chablis of the South! Grown within metres of where we source Picpoul. We couldn’t resist making a wine, using the closely related Terret Blanc. One of the Languedoc’s oldest varieties. Terret is prized for its ability to hold onto its acidity, in the heat of a Mediterranean summer. Historically, it has been a variety… Continue reading Tête-à-Tête

Free Fall

Another spectacular winemaking collaboration between Master of Wine Liam Steevenson and celebrated Hawke’s Bay winemaker, Rod McDonald.  


“SPOKE Amped Chardonnay is a grand, swaggering, Pouilly-Fuissé-bashing beauty, a glorious organic wine and bargain to boot” Matthew Jukes. SPOKE Amped Chardonnay is a combination of handpicked Chardonnay clones, whole bunch pressed to get a relatively clean juice straight away. The skins have not been broken prior to crushing, so it has had little time… Continue reading ‘Amped’


“SPOKE Awatere Sauvignon Blanc is simply thrilling and mind-boggling value for money” Matthew Jukes. The Awatere Valley is a bit cooler than the rest of Marlborough, so SPOKE Awatere  exhibits less overt tropical fruit and instead a more European note that is tight, elegant and fresh. Pairs well with seafood like oysters, crab, clams, lobster… Continue reading ‘Awatere’


“SPOKE Resolute Sauvignon Blanc is incredible. A spectacular, mineral-driven, laser sighted wine that will make even the most revered Loire Valley specialists sit up and take note” Matthew Jukes. SPOKE Resolute is hand harvested, whole bunch pressed to get a relatively clean juice straight away. The skins have not been broken prior to crushing, so… Continue reading ‘Resolute’


“SPOKE Brink Sauvignon Semillon takes a well-known model from places like Graves and Margaret River and turns it into a graceful, beautifully upholstered, organically-grown Grand Vin with stellar presence and unrivalled finesse” Matthew Jukes. SPOKE Brink  is made from hand harvested grapes, grown in the oldest organic vineyard in Marlborough. They have been whole bunch… Continue reading ‘Brink’

Département 11

With a soft mouthfeel and distinct green apple fruit character, our latest addition to the Département range is a benchmark example of the world’s original traditional method sparkling wine. What is a little different is that we decided upon a lower dosage, one of only three grams, which means that this wine exhibits an élan… Continue reading Département 11

Giant’s Castle

We worked with our friend and great winemaker Cerina van Niekerk, and her equally talented husband Jaco, to create a deliberately ‘pretty’ Sauvignon Blanc with compelling freshness and verve. We sourced grapes from areas of the Western Cape, specially cooled by both onshore winds and high altitude, to preserve brightness and aromatic purity. The result… Continue reading Giant’s Castle
