White Wine

Bottega Vinai Trentino Pinot Grigio 2016 £11.50

Icon-Grape-webPinot Grigio

 

Icon-Origin-webTrentino, Italy

 

Icon-Price-webA remarkably ‘grown-up’ Pinot Grigio, the familiar orchard and zippy citrus aromas and flavours are complemented by an appealing nuttiness and white spice. This Pinot Grigio is a real treat, it is characterful, with body and beautifully textured throughout.

Icon-Maker-webPinot Grigio with its grey-blue and brown-pink berries is one of the darkest skinned varieties to produce white wine. Great care is taken to vinify the grapes off their skins and to gently crush the whole bunches to prevent too much colour being extracted.

Icon-Price-webPure rich fruit and aromatics prevail. Ripe yellow stone fruits come through on the nose and palate and are balanced by a refreshing acidity. A white with ample body and texture.

Icon-Maker-webThe Viognier variety can require patience and skill, it buds early and can be susceptible to frost, whatsmore it can take a while to reach full flavour potential due to its thick skins.

Red Wine

Pietas Vielles Vignes Carignan 2016 £9.50

Icon-Grape-webCarignan

 

Icon-Origin-webPays d’Hérault, France

 

Icon-Price-webPietas is made from carefully selected, fully ripened fruit from low-yielding 40 year old vines. It is full-flavoured with velvety soft ripe fruit and medium-body. Pietas also delivers warming spice and a touch of savoury, earthy character that we associate with the grape variety. A tremendous value and very approachable red.

Icon-Maker-webCarignan is a challenging variety in the vineyard and winery alike. In the vineyard it is slow to ripen and prone to disease and in the winery due care and attention is required to balance the lively acidity and tannin. Invariably we see this variety in blends, rubbing shoulders with Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault.

Icon-Pairing-webThe perfect partner for hearty meat dishes, Cassoulet being the ultimate pairing.

 

Painted Wolf The Den Pinotage 2014 £11.00

Icon-Grape-webPinotage

 

Icon-Origin-webCoastal Region, South Africa

 

Icon-Price-webThe Den Pinotage is certainly, as described by its winemakers, a ‘comforting’ red and one for the emerging cool autumnal evenings. Packed full of flavour, red and black berries, spice, savoury notes and rounded off with toasty oak characters thanks to a touch of ageing in French and American barrels. The body verges on the fuller side of medium and the palate is juicy with an elegant lasting finish.

Icon-Maker-webPainted Wolf was founded by Jeremy Borg and his wife who, inspired by the nature of the African Wild Dog (Painted Wolf), embarked on a winemaking venture bringing together a community of skilled individuals for the task. As well as making tasty, quality wines the group are committed to using sustainably farmed and /or organic fruit and to the conservation of the African Wild Dogs.

This red can handle seasoning and spice. It would happily accompany a Lamb tagine as it would herby sausages.

Tabalí Gran Reserva Carmeñere 2016 £11.50

Icon-Grape-webCarmeñere

 

 

Icon-Origin-webCachapoal Valley, Chile

 

 

Icon-Price-webThis deep red, enticing wine combines elegance with juicy fruits and intensity. The fragrance is foremost, floral and spiced and the palate is a soft balance of dark berries, oak and silky tannins. Though rich in aroma and flavour this Carmeñere has a pleasant freshness emphasised on the long finish.

Icon-Maker-webThe unique ‘terroir’ for these Carmeñere vines contributes to the character and flavour complexity of the fruit. The soil consists of very little organic matter, limestone and salts are concentrated, and there is very little rainfall. The carefully harvested and selected fruit is aged for 10 months in French oak after fermentation in steel.

Icon-Pairing-webIt’s time for a Sunday roast!
