19 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.

 

Stonewall Pinot Noir 2017
Marlborough, New Zealand 13% abv
£13.99

New Zealand's Marlborough region has made its name with Sauvignon Blanc, but winemaker John Forrest is proving it excels with Pinot Noir, too. His Stonewall is silky with bright, ripe berry fruit, while old vines give it real depth and richness.       This is a great red to enjoy with chicken or mushroom risotto.   

 

The Great Bonza 2017
South Eastern Australia 14.5% abv
£10.99

A blend of the herby liquorice and blackberry of Aussie Shiraz and the dark cassis of classic Cabernet. It's fresh and juicy with a mouthful of cherries and blackcurrant. Six months of oak ageing adds spice and a hint of vanilla. Supple and fruit laden, this red is tasty on its own yet great with food.

 

The Prestige 2018
Mendoza, Argentina 14% abv
£14.99

Made with top quality parcels of Malbec and Shiraz, the grapes are air dried on straw mats for a few weeks after harvest, just like they do in Italy. Moisture slowly evaporates, leaving flavour even more concentrated, and then all cask aged for a few months. This is a whopping, rich red, deep, dark and velvet smooth, it's great with hearty stews.

 

Café Zoetrope 2017
California, USA 14% abv
£13.99

A smooth, rich Chardonnay from Francis Ford Coppola's state of the art winery in Geyserville, California. It has intense aromas of ripe apple and pear, complemented by notes of brown spice and toasted oak. The wine has ripe fruit flavours with a smooth, creamy texture and a long, full finish.
