05 May 2018

Web Wine Tasting Banner May

Looking for something new? Want to expand your wine knowledge? Then our big monthly wine tasting is perfect for you... On the first Saturday of the month we select 8 to 10 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.

 

Domaine du Mas Ensoleillé Rosé 2016

Provence, France 12.5% abv

£10.99

Provence has long been a mecca for fine rosé - wines with lovely berry character balanced by a savoury, creamy richness. Domaine Proux is a new addition to our range, with bright fresh berry and stony lemon flavours and a creamy underlay.

Whether skies are drab grey or blue, make sure you have a bottle of this in the fridge.

 

Hacienda da Lluna Moscatel Rosado

Valencia, Spain 5% abv

£4.99

You can just imagine how the heat of the Spanish summer might drive a winemaker to create this ultimate thirst quencher. Hacienda de Lluna Moscatel Rosado is crisp, fresh and gentle with bags of fruit flavours, a touch of sweetness and a crisp finish.

 

La Nantaise Réserve 2016

Muscadet, France 12.5% abv

£9.99

With piercing crisp lemon fruit and a bracing tang of the sea, Muscadet is one of France's most distinctive and refreshing whites. This Réserve cuvée was crafted from the pick of the small but excellent 2016 vintage and lees-aged for added richness. Chill down and serve with seafood or light salads.

 

Bon Courage Colombard 2017

Robertson, South Africa 12.5% abv

£9.49

If you're looking for a 'stand by' white to keep in your fridge, you can't go wrong with this. Fresh, lifted and bursting with citrus character, it's a mouthwatering Sauvignon alternative if you're looking for something a bit different. An ideal aperitif or partner to canapés.

 

Campanula Pinot Grigio 2016

Dunútul, Hungary 12% abv

£8.99

Wonderfully lemony crisp, Campanula is terrifically refreshing and top value, too. It's been one of our best sellers for years. This crisp, minerally Pinot Grigio has classic ripe pear and green apple character. Enjoy as a glass any time or with lighter dishes.

 

Portinho do Côvo 2016

Setubal, Portugal 13% abv

£8.29

A thoroughly modern Portuguese white. It has a wonderful array of crisp flavours thanks to a unique blend of grapes and meticulous winemaking. Portinho do Côvo is made by multiple award winning Jaime Quendera using the native Fernão Pires grape and Muscat.  Portinho is ideal with prawns, grilled white fish or crisp salad.

 

Redheads Adelais Pinot Shiraz 2017

Barossa Valley, Australia 14% abv

£12.99

You'd never expect RedHeads to stick to the norm when it comes to blends. Why not try ripe, berry scented Pinot Noir with dense blackberry rich Shiraz.

The result is seriously silky, with lovely ripe fruit, excellent balance, medium weight.

 

Shot in the Dark 2016

South Eastern Australia 14% abv

£9.99

When ripened by the Aussie sunshine, cassis laden Cabernet and rich, spicy Shiraz make the perfect partnership. And Shot in the Dark, from John Quarisa's family winery in New South Wales, is the perfect example of this style. With flavours of cracked pepper and bramble fruits; subtle mocha and fine tannins, this red is tasty on its own yet versatile with food.

 

Chante Clair 2017

Vin de France 13% abv

£8.99

As the retro label suggests, Chante-Clair is as proudly and authentically French as Asterix, Gauloises and the café accordion - yet it also embraces the best of modern winemaking. Mid weight and smooth as silk. Tasty red and black fruit flavours. Spot on with French bistro fare: confit de canard, cassoulet, or a hearty pot-au-feu.

 

Le Mani di Federica 2016

Sicily 13% abv

£8.49

A rich, spicy and complex wine with a long, smooth textured finish. Made by dynamic winemaker Federica Lauterio from finest hand picked Nero d'Avola grapes with a dash of super ripe Syrah.  Soft enough to enjoy on its own or with pizza, pasta or roast meats.
