Weekly Wine Tasting

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 you can try whilst browsing the shop, though our knowledgeable wine staff will be on hand to offer advice.

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

 

Here are the notes for this week's wine tasting...

 

Deep River 2017
Langhorne Creek, Australia 14.5%
£9.99

Usually Shiraz comes from the Barossa Valley, however this is from Langhorne Creek next to the Bremer and Angus River, giving the grapes a much-needed breeze. The result is a delicious blackberry and plum flavour with a dash of spice to finish. 

 

Aquarius Marsanne Viognier 2016
Goulburn Valley, Australia 13%
£10.99

Crisp stony freshness balanced by luscious, ripe peach and apricot, this is a new release from 'Big Mac' McPherson. This medium-bodied white has an incredibly smooth minerally finish.

 

Stellenrust Dryland Granite Shiraz 2014
Stellenbosch, South Africa 14%
£10.49

Using special yeast imported from the Rhone Valley for fermentation and aged in an oak barrel for a year to gain enough smoothness and complexity this dense red is a cracker with a roast lamb. You can expect to taste blackberry and raspberry with smooth tannins.

 

Fabre Montmayou Reservado Cabernet Franc 2015
Mendoza, Argentina 14%
£15.99

This Superb red uses handpicked Cabernet Franc from Lujan de Cuyo. It's been aged for a year in a French oak barrel and will make fine drinking for the next few years. This wine delivers a ripe raspberry freshness with a long finish.
