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.

 

Split Rock 2018 Simon's Wine of the Month
Nelson, New Zealand 12.5% abv
£9.99

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has become a worldwide phenomenon over the past decade. Over 2400 hours of sunshine in 2018 helped to contribute to the wines zesty fruitfulness and natural gooseberry flavours. Crisp, fresh Split Rock slips down a treat on its own and perfectly partners dishes such as spicy prawns, grilled chicken or creamy pasta.

 

Queen Bee Viognier 2018
Western Cape, South Africa 13% abv
£12.99

If you're looking for a characterful Viognier with an enticing aroma, exotic ripe fruit and a refreshingly crisp finish, your search is over. It's made at an environmentally sustainable, socially responsible estate. The vineyards only receive natural treatments and large areas of land are left uncultivated to encourage the local flora and fauna, as well as the Cape honey bee this wine is named after. This is a pure tasting, fruit first wine - all fruit with no oak. Serve with spicy couscous, creamy pork or a Thai seafood stir-fry.

 

Saint Tropez Rosé 2018
Côtes du Provence, France 12.5% abv
£13.99

A Provençal classic from the home of France's finest quality rosés. Saint Tropez has been famous for the style since the 19th century, yet only one cellar may proudly bear the glitterati town's name on its label. It's pure Grenache, the top rosé grape there, carefully cool fermented, to capture all the fruit and freshness in bottle. Serve with ocean fresh favourites such as crab or lobster, pan seared tuna or grilled king prawns. It's also great with white meats or creamy vegetarian dishes. 

 

Rocksand Shiraz 2017
Setubal, Portugal 13.5% abv
£11.49

This is a gorgeous, rich Shiraz. And, no, it's not from Oz, but from a top estate and winemaker in Portugal. Rich and fruity with flavours of plum, prune and blackcurrant. Aged in oak barrels to add a gorgeous, spicy, vanilla lift to the blueberry, blackberry and peppery fruit. A fine treat to serve with spicy chorizo sausages, a hearty stew or the Sunday roast.
