Wine Tasting

09 February 2019

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.

 

Domaine les Cassanets 2017
Côtes du Rhône, France 14.5% abv
£11.99

Labelled humble Côtes du Rhône, the domaine is in fact within Châteauneuf du Pape but century old politics prevent it from being upgraded. Same grapes, same terroir same style of wine.  It's big, rich and spicy - the only giveaway that this isn't Châteauneuf is the price. Decant early and serve with roast lamb or cassoulet.

 

Roche Lacour 2016
Crémant de Limoux, France 12.5% abv
£14.99

A great value alternative to Champagne, this fantastic fizz was an instant hit upon its release a quarter of a century ago.  It is made in Limoux using the same techniques as Champagne for fine bubbles, zippy lemon flavours and an elegant finish.

 

Bon Courage Estate 2017
Robertson, South Africa 12.5% abv
£9.49

Located approximately 60 miles East of Stellenbosch, Robertson is one of South Africa's premium wine regions renowned for ripe reds and crisp dry whites.           If you're looking for a 'stand by' white to keep in your fridge, you can't go wrong with this. Fresh, lifted and bursting with citrus character, it's a mouthwatering Sauvignon alternative if you want to try something a bit different.
