Drouhin Beaujolais Villages 2016
Beaujolais, France 12.5% abv
Was £12.99 - Now £10.99
A superb classic Beaujolais from the Drouhin family. 2016 was a

with floral aromas. A treat by itself with chicken or cold
Alentejano, Portugal 14.5% abv
Portugal boasts a superb range of unique, amazing quality wines

lifted floral aroma with bright stone fruits, a hint of guava and a
bright mineral quality - a touch more delicate than some.
Chill the wine down and enjoy as a glass on its own or with salmon
or a spicy stir-fry.

it the perfect aperitif, and it goes with almost all types of
