PS Pétillant Rosé. Vin de France
PS is a top customer favourite. Fresh as a bowl of strawberries
with gentle, tongue tingling fizz, think of it as a life affirming
glass of cheer whenever the fancy takes you. It's a great anytime
sort of wine - so make sure there's always at least one bottle in
the fridge, it's deliciously refreshing. Simply chill well. PS
Pétillant is mouth-watering as an apéritif, also great with king
prawns or salade Niçoise, or poured over strawberries with a twist
of black pepper.
Prestige les Terriades 2015. Anjou,
Dry and elegant with a lovely aromatic character, Prestige Les
Terriades is a truly great example of a Chenin Blanc made from a
top selection of perfectly ripe grapes. This lighter, fruit rich
styled wine has a fresh flavour and is well balanced with floral
and fruity essences. It is delicious chilled as an apéritif or
perfect partnered with a salad, fish or chicken.
