Wine of the Month- Grande Reserve de Gassac 2016

WAS £10.49 NOW £8.49

Herault, France 13.5% abv

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious show stopper from the south of France. The vineyard is located in arguably the area's most famous estate and thanks to years of shifting glaciers the terrain provides well drained soil. This wine is rich in plum and blackberry flavours making it a perfect accompaniment to garlicky lamb.

 

Les Champ des Etoiles 2017

£11.49

Pays d'Oc IGP, France 13.5%

This isn't your usual Pinot Noir. The vineyards are located high in the hills in the south meaning warm days are followed by cool nights, slowly ripening the grapes over time. This gives the wine a silky, raspberry and earthy taste. It's an absolute cracker on its own or with mushroom risottos.  

 

Penley Estate Casablanca 2016

£12.49

Coonawarra, Australia 14.5%

Wow. PUNCHY, SMOOTH AND VELVETY! This is a celebration of Australia's finest wine making area. The combination of limestone and clay soil makes for an intense concentration of Cabernet and Merlot. Its brilliant with red meats which will bring out the long oaky finish. 

 

Les Songeurs 2016

£11.99

Herault, France 14.5% abv

This award-winning Cabernet Franc is from the South of France where the glaciers once paved their way. The wine has been aged for 10 months in French oaked barrels giving the wine a silky, liquorice and spicy flavour. Best served with white meats and moussakas.

 

Black Stump 2017

£9.99

Australia, 14% abv

Reinventing the French grape Durif with a blend of Shiraz has proof that anything is possible. The wine is rich and smooth owing to the Durif and turbo charged by the ripe black fruit of the Shiraz. Serve it in a large glass, alongside a steak or Sunday roast.

 

Round the Blend 2015

£13.99

California, USA 13.5% abv

A beautiful blend of Durif, Merlot and Shiraz, Zinfandel and Temprinillo this wine is bursting with flavour. A hint of smoky coffee comes from the Shiraz whilst the Zinfandel offers a juicy smoothmess not forgetting the cherry flavours from the Mourvedre. This will pair excellently with roast vegetables.
