Tio Pepe Fino En Rama
Jerez, Spain, 15%
Tio Pepe En Rama is unclarified and unfiltered super fresh Fino
is loved by many for its unique, fresh from the cask
experience. It is alive with flavour and has more nutty
and yeasty aromas than the usual Tio Pepe. On the palate it is
fresh and citrusy, with a complex, saline finish. A truly
gastronomic wine it pairs perfectly with olives, almonds, oily fish
La Nantaise Reserve 2017
Muscadet DOC, France, 11.5% abv
Was £10.49 NOW £9.49
Crisp, fresh and lemony with a tang of the ocean. Muscadet is
one of France's most distinctive and refreshing wines. A portion of
the wine is aged on the lees adding softness and complexity. Serve
chilled with seafood and summer salads…or enjoy alone!
McPherson Aquarius 2016
Australia, 13% abv
This crisp stony wine consists of Marsanne (70%) and
Viognier (30%) grapes. The top grapes of the Rhone.
You can expect to taste a mixture of peach and apricot with a hint
of spice. Delightful on its own or even with a summery platter of
Stone Peak Riesling 2015
Columbia Valley, USA, 11.5% abv
This brilliant fresh Riesling is a perfect mix of lemon, apricot
and nectarine which gives it a sweet taste perfect for these summer
evenings. 2015 was a particularly ripe season so there's plenty of
concentration here. This will go splendidly with a stir fry or a
creamy Thai chicken curry.
The Clink 2016
California, USA, 14.1%
Mixing together Petit Sirah and Petit Verdot seems a bit…odd,
but it 100% works. It's a powerhouse of rich fruits, chocolate and
spice, resulting in a hefty dark red, ideal with roast lamb and
crispy BBQ offerings.
