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.

 

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

£9.99

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 flavour.

Unoaked for freshness, it's very easy drinking on its own, but goes well with a range of salads and seafood too.

 

Pigassou 2017

Vin de France 13.5% abv

£8.99

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 temperature.
