Danaris Gruner Veltliner 2017

Niederosterreich, Austria, 12% abv

£10.99

This wine is from a small winery in Krems, where the soil is rich with clay and limestone. The grapes are then slightly pressed giving a delicate flavour. This Austrian classic is full of green apple and white pepper making it an ideal pairing with Asian food and grilled fish.

 

Ascencion Torrontes 2017

Salta, Argentina, 13% abv

£10.49

This wine comes from the highest vineyard in the world, 1700m above sea level resulting in a floral, crisp and fresh wine. You can expect to taste crisp lime with a hint of spice. This is lovely as an aperitif but also alongside fish.

 

Stonewall Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Marlborough, New Zealand, 9.5% abv

Was £12.49 Now £11.49

The grapes have ripened just enough to have a lower level of natural sugar. This means the alcohol consumption is lower. The wines from this vineyard are also sustainably grown and full in flavour giving a crisp gooseberry and elderflower taste. Perfect with goats' cheese and seafood.

 

Monte delle Vigne Lambrusco Selezione 2016

Lambrusco IGT, Italy, 11.5% abv

£15.99

Having a sparkling red may seem a tad confusing but it will change the way you think. Its full of rich berry and balsamic cherry balanced with a little acidity. This Lambrusco has a delicate amount of fizz making it a perfect match for sticky grilled chicken dishes.

 

Cleanskin 2016

South Australia, 14% abv

Was £12.99 Now £11.99

Expect to taste cherry's and chalky cocoa chocolate tannins. It also has a decent amount of acidity giving a longer finish. This is a brilliant match for lamb, game and pasta dishes with tomato sauce.

 

Westend Estate Barrel Bandit 2016

Riverina, Australia, 14.5%

£9.49

When you think of Australia, you think BIG, RED, SHIRAZ. You don't always think of Durif. But pairing the two together results in a dark, intense spicy balanced finish. Ideal with red meat.
