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.

 

Marcelin Cuveé Chardonnay 2016
Languedoc, France 12.5% abv
£9.99

The debut release of Marcelin was a winner and the latest vintage is packed with just as much delicious peach, nectarine and apricot flavour, with lemony freshness. There's just a hint of oak and a real depth to the flavour.

Perfect with shellfish or roast chicken.

 

The Forefather Gran Selección 2015
Mendoza, Argentina 13% abv
£12.49

Sometimes a change of address works wonders! Take Malbec. This sturdy workhorse of South West France, where it's known as Cot, is famous for the dark, lip staining wines of Cahors. In Argentina it has blossomed into an altogether fruitier, more voluptuous wine.
It's a smooth velvety wine with ripe black fruit with a spicy mocha finish. Perfect with steak!!

 

Finca Libertad 2015
Castilla, Spain 14% abv
£8.99

Cabernet is the latest trend in Spain. It ripens beautifully in the sunshine, producing intense flavours. Packed with ripe redcurrant and cherry fruit, this fresh 2017 is from Castilla, where arid vineyards emphasise that delicious intensity.  

It's an ideal match with grilled meats and perfect at with hearty stews.
