Farnese Trebbiano 2016

Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Italy 12% abv

£9.99

 

A light and refreshing dry white with aromas of Fresh lemon, melon and almond. Nicely balanced, it's fresh and zippy with ripe citrus and melon fruit flavours.

This Trebbiano displays all this grape's zesty lemon freshness - enjoy as an apéritif or with seafood or salads.

 

Andresen Late Bottled Vintage Port

Porto, Portugal 20% abv               

£15.99

 

Indulge yourself with a rich and luscious port from one of the last remaining family-run houses. Its LBV is renowned for levels of concentration and richness that can rival even the most expensive vintage ports. Unfiltered to retain every element of flavour and colour from the wine, this spectacular LBV needs the same treatment as a top vintage port - so be sure to decant an hour before drinking to allow its aromas to open out. Then sit back and indulge in the ultimate after dinner tipple!

 

Aluado Alicante Bouschet 2017

Lisbon, Portugal 13.5% abv

£9.99

 

Velvet black fruit Alicante plays a minor role in many of Portugal's reds but winemaker José Neiva Correia decided to give it centre stage. Madness, some thought, but five Golds, a Best Buy and 90 points from Wine Enthusiast over two vintages prove him right. Ripe damson and blackberry flavours with a hint of coffee and cinnamon, it's a rich, velvety red, great solo or served with roast meats (try lamb or pork) or a herby casserole.

 

Aluado Chardonnay 2016

Estremadura, Portugal 12.5% abv

£9.99

 

If you enjoy a white with a real zip of freshness accompanied by appealing ripe fruit, this ocean cooled Chardonnay from Portugal will perfectly fit the bill. With Ripe orchard fruits - peach and apricot - with creamy lemon hints, it's just what you want as a glass on its own or when serving with seafood, salmon or chicken dishes.

 

Brigando Rosé 2016

Lisbon, Portugal 11.5% abv

£8.49

 

For fans of top quality wines offering great value for money, Portugal is a happy hunting ground. This fresh fruity pink is from one of the top names in Portuguese wine, José Neiva. In this mouthwatering pink he uses ripe, juicy Touriga Nacional for its unmatchable summer fruit character. Perfect for picnics, with cold meats, chicken, veggie kebabs and so much more.
