Rebellion Wine Tasting Saturday 7th February 2020

 

**NEW WINE**
Hole in The Clouds 2019                
Marlborough, New Zealand 12.5% abv
£14.99

This is a fabulous new release Marlborough Sauvignon, and from 2019, a 5-Star vintage. The grapes are grown by a husband and wife team who've worked for some of the greatest names in the region. Aromas of guava, lime, mango, cut grass, citrus and a juicy mouthful of tropical and citrus fruits.  Great on its own or with spicy dishes.

 

Rainha do Mar 2018
Setubal Peninsula, Portugal 12% abv
£8.29

Rainha do Mar translates to Queen of the Sea. It's made from the aromatic, lemony Fernão Pires grape, from the Setúbal Peninsula. Centuries ago, Vasco da Gama set sail from here and discovered the sea route to India. Today Setúbal is better known as a surfers' paradise and a winemakers' nirvana. A sunny climate and cooling ocean breezes provide perfect grape growing conditions. This white is deliciously fresh and crisp. Serve chilled like the locals do, solo or with grilled fish or prawns and a crisp salad.

 

Campanula Pinot Grigio 2018
Dunántúli, Hungary 12% abv
£9.99

Wonderfully lemony crisp, Campanula is terrifically refreshing and top value, too. No wonder it's remained one of our bestsellers for 15 years.Quintessential Pinot Grigio from a modern cellar and made by one of Hungary's top winemakers. Enjoy as a glass any time or with lighter dishes.

 

Petticoat White Zinfandel 2018
California, USA 11.5% abv
£8.99

Ripe, fruity with a hint of sweetness, this delightful Californian rosé is a real charmer.  It's made from California's 'original Zin' (Zinfandel), a grape that produces dark, brooding, powerful reds, but also this cheeky, fresh pink. There's ripe strawberry, plum and cassis notes and a mouthwatering freshness. Enjoy Petticoat chilled, on its own, or with crudités or something more substantial like grilled prawns with spicy salsa.

 

Posada del Rey
Vino Blanco, Spain 12% abv
£7.99

A terrific value, crisp dry white made with grapes from Spain's most famous wine making regions. Posada del Rey has subtle aromas of Pineapple, Passion fruit and wildflowers.  It combines the zesty lime flavours of Rueda's Verdejo with the melon and honeysuckle aromas of La Mancha's Viura, and a touch of creamy richness from Rioja's Malvasia. Lovely on its own, you'll find it great, too, with Spanish style marinated sardines and other tapas dishes, lemon chicken or sauced fish.

 

Simon's Wine of the Month
Salvatore Malbec, Shiraz Durif 2019
Mendoza, Argentina 14% abv
Was £11.49 Now £9.99

A rich, velvety blend of Malbec, Shiraz and Durif, aged for 4 months in French oak barrels. The resulting wine has flavours of blueberry, blackberry and ripe cherry, with supple tannins and a long lingering finish. The perfect choice for hearty stews and casseroles.

 

**NEW WINE**
Garage Red 2017
Côtes du Rousillon Villages, France 14.5% abv
£13.49

The term Garage describes super intense, top end wines crafted by passionate individuals on a tiny scale, in a space the size of a garage. This red is crafted from selected parcels of old vine Syrah, (aka Shiraz) aged for over a year in old oak barrels. The result is this richly flavoured beauty with fabulous blackberry, liquorice and toasty spice character. Decant an hour prior to serving with rich, hearty dishes.

 

**NEW WINE**
Pennautier 2018
Pays d'Oc, France, 13.5% abv
£13.49

Rare Cabernet Franc from a 400-year-old estate in the Languedoc's tucked away Cabardès. The Lorgeril family have been owners there since 1620 and are immensely proud of their wines. Silky red fruit with real elegance, a red full of juicy charm. Great with roast chicken, ratatouille and other Mediterranean dishes.

 

Il Papavero Primitivo 2017
Puglia, Italy 13.5% abv
£9.99

It's no coincidence the Papavero family of wines are amongst our customers' favourites. This is the granddaddy of the group, made purely from Primitivo from a plot of 50-year-old vines, resulting in very concentrated flavour. ll Papavero Primitivo is a weighty red, best served with similarly hearty food. Enjoy with spaghetti and tomato, garlic and basil sauce, or with roast meats or pork casserole.

 

Baron de Barbon 2018
Rioja, Spain 13.5% abv
£10.99

Vintage after vintage, Barón de Barbón proves to be our bestselling Rioja. It's a lot to do with the wine's enticing berry aromas, silky texture and luscious flavour. It's classic Tempranillo with all the hallmark, velvety, toasty flavours that have made Rioja such a hit. With its mouthfilling, red berry flavours and fragrant vanilla character, this supple red is most enjoyable solo or with simple suppers such as grilled lamb chops, char-grilled vegetable kebabs or chicken.
