Web Wine Tasting Banner July

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.

 

Palacio de Menade 2017

Castilla y León, Spain 12% abv

£9.99

If you're a fan of the increasingly brilliant, Sauvignon-like whites of northwest Spain, you'll adore this gem from Castilla y León. What makes it extra special is the unusual blend of Sauvignon and local hero Verdejo, all grassy fresh and lemony.

Palacio's breezy, citrus and apricot freshness is perfect for pairing with fresh seafood, canapés or a smoked salmon salad.

 

La Nantaise Réserve Muscadet Sèvre et Maine 2015

Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, France 12% abv

£9.99

If you want crisp, dry and refreshing in a wine, you can't do better than Muscadet. And having in the past lost out to the New World, its winemakers are working extremely hard to win consumers back. Quality and value have never been better.

The region is the most westerly in the Loire, closest to the Atlantic, so its wines always seem to hint of the sea. You'll taste that in this delicious Réserve white from fourth generation winemaker Noël Bougrier, who added a portion of lees-aged wine for extra complexity.

Chill down and serve with seafood or light salads.

 

Marchese di Borgosole Riserva 2014

Salice Salentino, Italy 13% abv

£11.99

Salice Salentino lies in the very heel of Italy's boot, quite a low lying area, cooled by breezes from the Adriatic sea nearby.

The Negroamaro grape seems to love the climate here, producing deep and intensely flavoured reds - wines that are beautifully balanced and elegant, too. That's especially true of this gorgeous, very well priced Riserva.

Highly experienced Marco Flacco has made the wine from Negroamaro with a dash of softer Malvasia Nera - a classic blend of the area.

Nine months in barrel and the rest in bottle has lent the intense cherry fruit layers of chocolatey spice.

The wine has lovely maturity, yet the freshness and gentle tannins to enable it to age a few years yet. For now, decant early and serve with pork or game.
