Wine Tasting

27 July 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.

 

White

Vesuvium 2018 Simon's Wine of the Month
Greco di Tufo, Italy 12.5% abv
was £13.99 - Now £11.99

From a family cellar in Campania, this white has delightful honeyed pear and lemon fruit flavours, a wine brimming with character. The grape, Greco di Tufo, is Greek in origin, but today is decidedly Italian. With hints of pear, almond and citrus, this is a white to savour with vegetarian and seafood dishes.

 

Sentiero dei Pini Pinot Grigio 2017
Venezie, Italy 12.5% abv
£9.99

Cool climate fresh and truly thirst quenching, this wine displays crisp, pure, lemon and grapefruit flavours, a touch of ripe, white stone fruit and a sophisticated, minerally edge. It's a 'drink anytime' wine but perhaps best enjoyed as an aperitivo, or with lighter dishes.

 

La Trombetta Gavi 2016
Gavi, Italy 12% abv
£13.49

The vines are 35 years old and produce small quantities of concentrated grapes. The wine has a perfect harmony of citrus fruit, mineral notes and freshness. Classic Gavi, it excels alongside grilled sole or herby pasta dishes such as tajarin (Piemontese tagliatelle) or ravioli with sage butter.

 

Red

Collezione di Paolo Pogerisi 2017
Tuscany, Italy 13% abv
£9.99

If you love quality Italian wine, but don't want to pay the earth, this is the red to choose. It's from renowned Tuscan winemaker Paolo Masi and is very much Chianti in all but name. Intense cherry fruit - silky and totally irresistible to drink.

 

Il Papavero Vino Rosso
Italy 12.5% abv
£10.99

Only the ripest, most flavoursome grapes from the top performing regions are used  to ensure Il Papavero is consistently delicious with soft, supple, red berry vibrancy. Sangiovese from the Marches, Abruzzi Montepulciano, plus Negroamaro and Nero d'Avola from the far south. A truly luscious combination.

 

Rosé

Il Sogno di Ariano 2018
Bardolino Chiaretto, Italy 12% abv
£9.99

Made using the classic grapes of this area - Corvina and Rondinella (the same as in Valpolicella) - the juice left on the skins for just a few hours to lend a delicate hue to the wine. Cherry fruit, floral hints and a bright, lemony, mineral freshness - a perfectly balanced rosato for drinking solo, with salads, seafood or creamy pasta.
