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.         

 

Long Live the King Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

King Valley, Australia 14% abv                   

£9.99

A medium bodied red with the typical Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of cassis, mint and green pepper. The seamless palate is rich with sweet dark berries, cherry, plum and just a hint of nutmeg.

Enjoy with aged steak or mature farmhouse Cheddar.

 

Purple Owl Pinot Noir 2016

California, USA 13.5% abv                                            

£12.99

Named after the shaggy purple flowers that carpet much of central and southern California, like masses of little purple brushes, Purple Owl is no ordinary Pinot Noir - grapes for this juicy berry red are sourced from the finest vineyards on California's Central Coast. A gentle pressing and careful vinification capture all its layers of vibrant cherry and raspberry fruit.

Try with chicken in red wine sauce or your favourite cheeses. Pinot Noir is tricky to get right so it makes sense to stock up when you find a good one!

 

Westend Estate No.1 Chardonnay 2016

Riverina, Australia 13% abv

£10.99

Every wine from Westend Estate is a winner - a superb balance of intense fruit, character and freshness. This medium bodied white is a typical example, made from Chardonnay matured in premium oak, this top white balances opulent tropical fruit flavours with buttery notes and supreme freshness.                                                                                                                    Rounded and elegant, this No.1 Chardonnay is delicious with sauced fish and chicken.

 

Marcelin Chardonnay 2015

Languedoc, France 12.5% abv

£9.99                                                                                                    

From the tiny village of Argeliers near Minervois in the French Languedoc region. An irresistible Chardonnay full of bright stone fruit flavours,  (think peaches, apricots and nectarines) and a crisp lemony freshness.

Serve Cuvée 1907 chilled with fruits de mer or chicken.
