Wine Tasting

31 August 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.

 

PS Pétillant Rosé
Vin de France 11% abv
£10.99

Lightly sparkling, very refreshing, and at a quarter of the price of rosé Champagne, it's good value too. It means you don't need a celebration to crack open a bottle. Simply chill well. PS Pétillant is mouthwatering as an apéritif, also great with king prawns or salade Niçoise, or poured over strawberries with a twist of black pepper.

 

Domaine Bellevue 2018
Touraine, France 13.5% abv
£11.99

From a small family estate in the heart of the Loire region, this Sauvignon Blanc is deliciously concentrated with aromas of creamy lemon, grapefruit and floral hints. It's a very versatile wine and goes well wine most white meat dishes. It's lovely with goat's cheese and a fresh baguette and gorgeous on its own too. 

 

Stonewall 2018
Marlborough, New Zealand 9.5% abv
£10.99

Dr John Forrest's 9.5% Vol Stonewall Sauvignon Blanc was ground-breaking two years back and still leads the field. He found a way to ripen grapes while keeping natural sugar levels (and so alcohol) lower. It's crisp with vibrant gooseberry, elderflower and stony citrus flavours. A perfect partner to seafood, exotic salads or goat's cheese.

 

Ginestières 2017
Pays d'Oc, France 13% abv
£9.99

It's rare to see a French Merlot of this calibre at this price. This is partly explained by its provenance, the Languedoc Roussillon, which also provides much of France's best value wine. With dark cassis and wild herb flavours, this silken gem is a smart alternative to costlier Saint Emilion. Enjoy its fine, dark cherry and wild herb character with lamb chops, duck or a vegetable casserole.    

 

The Four Marx Brothers 2016
California, USA  15% abv
£13.99

A velvety, easy drinking California Merlot. It hails from prime-sited Central Coast vineyards and the fantastic 2016 vintage. Light oak aging adds gentle spice notes to the ripe, red-fruit flavours and silky-smooth tannins. Like the Marx Brothers, this food friendly Merlot is easy to enjoy. Pair it with your favourite poultry dish or alongside heartier meats like pork tenderloin or lamb chops. Vegetarians can enjoy it with mushroom burgers, butternut squash ravioli, and more. Of course, this is also smooth enough to sip all on its own.
