Tasting wines

1. Lebrun Pouilly-Fume

Classic and classy Loire Sauvignon Blanc. Vines of average 25 years old, controlled yields and a mixture of predominantly (70%) flint soils. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel with 6 months aging on the lees. Mineral laden and with the tell-tale discreet style of Pouilly wines, clay soils bring a soft and supple element to the smoky and rounded spices that trip above the fleshy white and tropical fruits.

125ml - £7.00

175ml - £9.00

Bottle - Retail £21.00, Drink in £29.00

2. Freedom of the Press, Pinot Gris

The palate is elegant: a hint of emerging honey (will develop in bottle), some mineral, balanced by a fine citrus acidity, spice and a long finish. It is a wine that is drinking well now and will keep for a year or two developing more mid palate complexity. 

125ml - £9.00

175ml - £12.00

Bottle - Retail £27.50, Drink in £32.50

3. Celler Alimara Llumi Rosat

Stewed strawberry with hints of Valencian orange and candied fruits. This wine is excellent as an aperitif, or served with grilled chicken, crab salad, or grilled tuna. Or it would make an interesting pairing with sushi and vegetable dishes such as ratatouille.

4. Alpha Box & Dice Golden Mullet Fury Semillon Viognier

Golden Mullet Fury, the co-fermented, skin contact white wine (Orange wine) has become a hallmark of AB&D wines. This vintage gives a more palatable approach to skin contact white wine from previous vintages, without surrendering its character or funk. It’s a blonde bombshell of capsicum, guava and butterscotch on the nose with waxy, textured, almond, spicy and rich flavours throughout your mouth. Orange wine that's actually worth all the hype!

125ml - £8.50

Bottle - Retail £25.00,  Drink in £30.00

5. Strange Kompanjie Cinsault

The nose is alluringly bright with aromas of fresh strawberry, juicy cherry and crunchy red fruit. The palate reflects these with vibrant, tangy berry fruit, fresh acidity and gently mineral notes which marry together with delicate finesse.

Great lightly chilled with Mediterranean dishes, chargrilled veg, pan fried shrimp or Asian inspired dishes.
