Cleanskin Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Adelaide Hills, Australia 11% abv
£10.99 (Rrp £13.99)
When it comes to mouthwatering Aussie Sauvignon, few regions
compare to the Adelaide Hills. They are home to Australia's
"winemaking royalty". You'll notice it's a 'cleanskin' - in other
words the estate did not put their own label on the bottle. Why?
Because they sold a few cases at well below the going rate (to
shift stock) and they wouldn't want regular customers finding out.
So bag yourself a bargain.
La Roccaccia Verdicchio 2017
Verdicchio di Matelica, Italy 12% abv
If you haven't tried Verdicchio in a while, reacquaint yourself
with this classic Italian White. This one comes from the wine's
hometown of Matelica, and it's pure, fresh and exhilarating. A
medium bodied wine, with fresh nutty aromas, lemon zest and hints
of stone fruit. It's crisp, dry and citrussy with a real depth of
Unoaked for freshness, it's very easy drinking on its own, but
goes well with a range of salads and seafood too.
Vin de France 13.5% abv
Did you know the inside of most red grapes like Merlot or
Cabernet is actually white? The deep red colour comes from the
grape skins. The Alicante grape has a black skin AND black juice.
Pigassou red is largely Alicante, so you can see how the Black Pig
got its name.
It's an authentic "Café" style wine from the Midi area, close to
Minervois. With lovely fresh herb, sweet spice, raspberry and
blackberry aromas, it's an easy drinking wine with supple, juicy
black fruit flavours and a hint of wild herbs and spice.
Serve as and when the fancy takes you - cool or at room
