Wine Tasting

06 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.

 

The Rustler Chenin Blanc 2018
Western Cape, South Africa 13% abv
£9.99 or £84.00 per dozen

Chenin Blanc is the Cape's signature white grape - here displayed in all its pure, zingy citrus and ripe, tropical fruit glory. Crafted by champion winemaker Bruce Jack at his award winning cellar, it's a delightfully fresh, intense flavoured white.

 

Pedra do Cribo Albariňo 2016
Rias Baixas, Spain 13.5% abv
£13.99

If you haven't tried this exciting white, imagine the freshness of Sancerre with the aromatics of Viognier, plus the minerality of fine Chablis, and you'll be close. Pedra do Cribo is slowly fermented then aged on its lees (the sediment) for 18 months to develop richness and complexity.

 

Stanlake Park Regatta
Twyford, Berkshire 12.5% abv
£11.49

Regatta is named after the Henley Regatta which takes place only a few miles from the Vineyard. A crisp dry wine with a soft spicy nose, floral hints and a clean herbaceous finish. Try it with pasta, fish and chicken dishes, grilled veggies, creamy sauces, cheese platters, appetisers or just by itself.

 

Saint Tropez Rosé 2018
Côtes de Provence, France 12.5% abv
£13.99

A Provençal classic from the home of France's finest quality rosés. Saint Tropez has been famous for the style since the 19th century, yet only one cellar may proudly bear the glitterati town's name on its label. Characterful, elegant and stylish. Serve with ocean fresh favourites such as crab or lobster, pan seared tuna or grilled king prawns. It's also great with white meats or creamy vegetarian dishes.

 

Hacienda da Lluna Moscatel Rosado 2017
Valencia, Spain 5% abv
£5.29

You can just imagine how the heat of the Spanish summer might drive a winemaker to create this ultimate thirst quencher. Hacienda de Lluna Moscatel Rosado is crisp, fresh and pretty, with the sweetness of a ripe grape. Gently sparkling and only 5% ABV, too. Serve well chilled - a delight on its own at any time.

 

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.

 

Uvaris Rioja 2017
Rioja, Spain 14% abv
£7.99

This young Rioja is a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes giving an intense cherry coloured wine with ripe summer fruit aromas. It's deliciously silky and easy to drink. It's suitable for all sorts of occasions. Just pop the cork and enjoy

 

Drakenskloof Pinotage 2018
Western Cape,South Africa 14.5% abv
£9.99

Rich damson flavours with exotic notes of smoke, earth, coffee bean and liquorice. No other grape produces flavours quite like Pinotage! Smooth enough to be enjoyed on its own, but even better with rich food such as chorizo and butter bean casserole or spicy ribs.

 

Chante Clair 2017
Vin de France 13% abv
£8.99.

Made with a blend of grapes from across the Languedoc region. It's a rich aromatic wine, full of red and black berry fruit flavours. Supple, smooth and spicy, it's a great all rounder and goes well with virtually everything!

 

Santa Julia Malbec 2017
Mendoza, Argentina 13% abv
£11.99

Malbec and Argentina - a marriage made in heaven for wine lovers. No other country makes such a seductive style, and few cellars excel so consistently as Santa Julia. Their Malbec is a smooth, easy going and fruit filled red made for everyday enjoyment right now. Enjoy with simple week day suppers.
