Wine Tasting

12 October 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.

 

Diemersfontein Carpe Diem 2016
Wellington, South Africa 14% abv
£22.00

The flagship Pinotage from third generation winemakers at the world class Diemersfontein estate. This outstand wine has been aged for 16 months in oak barrels. It has inviting flavours of raspberries, cherries and pencil shavings on the nose, followed with rich fruit flavours of plum and berries rounding it all off with supple tannins on the palate. Great with beef, lamb or game.

 

Diemersfontein Coffee Pinotage 2017
Wellington, South Africa 14% abv
£12.99

Diemersfontein wines are produced by the Sonnenberg family in the majestic Wellington Wine Valley in the Western Cape.  They are recognised internationally as being the original creators of coffee and chocolate style Pinotage. On the nose rich dark chocolate and powerful freshly brewed coffee styling, with a hint of mint and baked plums. The palate shows distinct characters of coffee and chocolate, which is balanced with smooth velvety tannins and a lingering aftertaste.

 

Drakenskloof Pinotage 2018
Stellenbosch, South Africa 14% abv
£9.99

This big, rich, spicy red is as close as you could hope to come to the essence of South African wine. Firstly, because it's Pinotage, the country's signature red grape-it was bred there in 1925. And secondly because it's from the great, historic Spier estate.

Winemaker Frans Smit used old-vine fruit for extra intensity and aged the wine in a combination of American and French oak, softening the tannins and adding notes of spice to the ripe berry flavours. Smooth enough to be enjoyed on its own, but even better with rich food such as chorizo and butter bean casserole or spicy ribs.
