Looking for something new? Want to expand your wine knowledge? Then our weekly wine tasting is perfect for you...every Saturday we select wines from our range for you to discover.

It's a casual tasting, no pressure and not guided so you can try whilst browsing the shop. If you needed to know more, our knowledgeable wine staff will be on hand to offer advice.

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

Here are your wine 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. 

 

Castillo Armado 2009
Valdepeñas, Spain 13% abv
£9.99

This great value Spanish Reserva is from Valdepeñas, a region renowned for top notch wines since the 13th century. Made from gloriously intense, old vine Tempranillo fruit, patiently matured in American oak, this 2009 is smooth and rich.

Soft and silky with raspberry and cherry fruit and vanilla spice flavours, it's a richly flavoured red with great complexity. Matured for three years in oak, this red is a real treat with roast pork, wild boar sausages or cured meats.

 

Waitui Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Marlborough, New Zealand 13% abv
£9.99

New Zealand's Marlborough is the hottest ticket out there for vibrant Sauvignon Blanc. Customers don't seem to be able to get enough. So we've searched out another class act. First release is the 2017 - a year that had its challenges: wind, rain and earthquakes! But the small crop was perfect, with a ravishing range of flavours. There's a lovely fruit ripeness balanced by leafy freshness with bright stone fruits, a hint of guava and a bright mineral quality.
