Wine Tasting

16 February 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 House of Fun Shiraz Malbec 2018
Western Cape, South Africa 14% abv
£9.99

This luscious combo of spicy Shiraz and blackberry rich Malbec is full of smooth fruity fun. It's a new release from the Gabb family's Mount Rozier estate in premium Stellenbosch. A gorgeously moreish red, with juicy ripe fruit and freshness.

 

Long Live the King 2017
New South Wales, Australia 14.5% abv
£9.99

This inky dark, cassis rich red is from talented winemaker Sam Trimboli. It's a luscious wine, rich with sweet dark berries, blackcurrant and plum, and a classic hint of mint, plus good grip and length. For now, let the wine breathe for half an hour before serving with aged steak or mature farmhouse Cheddar.

 

Porrais Reserva 2017
Douro, Portugal 13% abv
£14.99

With its spicy peach and zingy lemon curd flavours, Porrais Reserva shows that the Douro is about much more than just port these days, the region's whites offer superb complexity and richness.  Combining Rabigato grapes, for ripe fruit and zippy edge, with Códega do Larinho, for its aromatics, this delicious white makes a lovely partner for sauced fish.

 

Opi Malbec Rosé 2018
Mendoza, Argentina 12.5% abv
£10.99

Mendoza's high altitude vineyards are ideal for Malbec reds and, thanks to the long growing season, and great for aromatic, berry scented rosés too. With crisp redcurrant, citrus and summer berry fruits and a peppery edge, it's irresistible as a glass solo, and surprisingly versatile with food.                                                        Try with pea and pancetta risotto, chicken, poached salmon or lightly spiced Asian dishes.
