Samples will be available from 10am to 5pm each Saturday.

Here are the tasting notes....

 

Purple Owl Pinot Noir 2016
California, USA 13.5% abv
£12.99

A welcome return for one of our favourite wines of 2017. Purple Owl is no ordinary Pinot Noir. The grapes for this juicy red are sourced from only the finest vineyards on California's Central Coast. It has layers of vibrant cherry and raspberry fruit flavours and a lovely silky texture too. Try with chicken in red wine sauce or your favourite cheeses. 

 

Full Rack 2015
California, USA 13.5% abv
£12.99

Full Rack hails from California's exceptional 2015 vintage. It's crafted from a premium blend of fruit-packed Cabernet Sauvignon and spicy Syrah.  its expressive flavours of rich, black fruit (blackberry, plum and cherry) supported by a hint of savoury bacon and smoky, toasty notes, thanks to time in oak.

It's guaranteed to please with grilled steak, burgers, a 'full rack' of ribs and more. 

 

Willy Willy Shiraz 2016
South Eastern Australia 14% abv
£9.49

Willy Willy sums up all that we love about Aussie wine. It has bags of fruit flavour and character, is so easy to drink, and offers outstanding value for money. 

It's a rich, ripe mouthful of black fruit with a twist of pepper. Smooth enough to drink solo, it comes into its own with char grilled meats or shepherd's pie. Pour into large glasses and enjoy.

 

Petticoat White Zinfandel 2016
California, USA 12.5% abv
£8.99

Petticoat is loved for its easy to drink, fruit rich style reminiscent of watermelon and strawberries. And it stands out even more because grapes were left on the vine that little bit longer for a wonderful hint of sweetness. 

Enjoy Petticoat chilled, on its own, or with crudités or something more substantial like grilled prawns with spicy salsa.

 

Terra Serena Prosecco Magnum
Treviso, Italy 13% abv
Rrp £25.00 now £20.00

It's official, in the UK we now spend more on Prosecco than on Champagne. And it's no surprise - light refreshing flavour, unstoppable fizz and easy prices all make it irresistible.

This one from Terra Serena is delicious, with fresh acidity, it's creamy, with apples and a floral aftertaste and here in Magnum size too!
