Wine Tasting

22 June 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.

This week we're tasting 1 Rose, 2 Whites and 2 Reds.

 

Rose:

Domaine du Mas Ensoleillé 2018 Simon's Wine of the Month

Provence, France 12.5% abv                                                £10.99

This is a delicious wine from a small cellar in Aix en Provence, and is made from Provence's finest varieties for elegant rosé.

Subtle berry fruit with a classic savoury edge and bright lemony zip - this wine is as delightful on its own as it is with seafood or lighter vegetarian dishes.

 

White:

Vesuvium 2017

Greco di Tufo, Italy 12.5% abv                                             £13.99

From a family cellar in Campania, this white has delightful honeyed pear and lemon fruit - 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.                                                                                                                                                    

Château le Coin Sauvignon Gris 2018

Bordeaux, France 13% abv                                                  £10.99

Cousin to Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris is richer and spicier, yet still with appetising zip. All the grapes are grown at a superb estate in the Entre Deux Mers, The soils are ideal - the limestone helps to produce lovely fruit intensity. Old vine grapes and a tiny portion of oak fermentation lends even more richness. Great solo or with a creamy gratin.

 

Red:

The Four Marx Brothers Merlot 2016

California, USA 13% abv                                                     £13.99

This is 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.

Armando H Malbec 2018

Mendoza, Argentina 13.5% abv                                           £9.99

Juicy, rich and bursting with sumptuous black fruit, Armando H explains why Argentinean Malbec is so popular right now. It's from Bodega Los Toneles, a handsome winery that has been producing top notch wines in Mendoza since the 1920s. Soft enough as an aperitif, it's also ideal with tomato based pasta dishes and tasty with kebabs.
