Tio Pepe Fino En Rama

Jerez, Spain, 15% abv                                                                                                                                    

£15.99

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 and tapas.

 

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

£10.99

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 seafood.

 

Stone Peak Riesling 2015

Columbia Valley, USA, 11.5% abv

£14.49

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%

£12.49

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.
