Cleanskin Langhorne Creek Shiraz
Langhorne Creek, Australia 13.5% abv
Was £15.99 - Now £11.99
If you're a fan of Aussie wine, you'll probably have seen a
cleanskin or two. But it's rare to come across one crafted from the
fruit of a single vineyard. And although we can't name its winery,
the single vineyard provenance of this luscious Shiraz means it is
a quality wine made in tiny quantities. Conditions in 2017 produced
a long, slow ripening time to give the perfect combination of fruit
flavour, aroma and velvety tannins for ageing. Fruity with lovely
length, it's great with roasts and cheeses.
Pillastro Primitivo 2018
Puglia, Italy 13.5% abv
It's no coincidence Pillastro is one of our bestselling Italian
reds - customers love all that richness, warmth and bold, ripe
fruit. Pillastro comes from Puglia, in Italy's deep south, best
known for big, smoky wines made from prized local varieties
Primitivo and Negroamaro. Packed with spiced plum and raspberry
flavour, this rich, dark, velvety red has bagged 50 awards in the
last seven vintages, while the winery has twice been voted southern
Waitui Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Marlborough, New Zealand 13% abv
The new vintage of our favourite Kiwi Sauvignon. Fresh of the
boat and 100% refreshing. This wine is packed with floral peach
fruit and zesty citrus flavour, as you'd expect from quality
vineyards of the South Island's Marlborough region. A touch more
delicate than some, it's made by one of the founding families of
the Marlborough region. Chill the wine down and enjoy as a glass on
its own or with salmon or a spicy stir-fry.
