Wine Tasting

27 April 2019

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.

 

Baron de Barbon 2017
Rioja, Spain 13.5% abv
£10.99

Classic Tempranillo with all the hallmark, velvety, toasty flavours that have made Rioja such a hit. The grapes come from the old vineyards of Rioja Alavesa, rare in such a modestly priced wine, and key to its popularity and Trophy winning history. With its mouth filling, red berry flavours and fragrant vanilla character, this supple Rioja is most enjoyable on its own or with simple suppers of grilled chops, vegetable kebabs or chicken.                                                                 

 

Baron de Barbon Blanco 2017
Rioja, Spain 13.5% abv
£10.99

This citrus-scented Barón de Barbón carries the flag for cutting edge, contemporary white Riojas. It's the sibling wine to our bestselling red Rioja, both made by the Murúa family. Terrific value, it dazzles with its racy fresh, lime zipped flavours. Fresh and well balanced with a subtle grapefruit and lime character, it's delicious served chilled with tapas, barbecued chicken or spicy prawns with noodles.

 

Gran López Rosado 2017
Campo de Borja, Spain 13.5% abv
£9.99

Spain may be best known for its oaky reds, but it'd be foolish to overlook its raft of delicious bright berry rosés. Garnacha is the mainstay grape, one that performs brilliantly in Campo de Borja. There the old bush vines and poor soils ensure yields are small and flavour is big - just what you want in your wine. The fabulous lively berry fruit and zesty crispness make it the perfect aperitif, and it goes with almost all types of food.

 

Drouhin Beaujolais Villages 2016
Beaujolais, France 12.5% abv
Was £12.99 - Now £10.99

A superb classic Beaujolais from the Drouhin family. 2016 was a very good vintage and this wine has lovely intensity of silky fruit with floral aromas.               
A treat solo or with chicken or cold meats.
