White
sauvignon blanc fairhall downs 2016
Sauvignon Blanc Fairhall Downs 2016
A symphony of rich passionfruit and vibrant fruit flavours that veer into citrus. Subtle oak influence from a partial barrel fermentation adds complexity and texture, culminating in the trademark crisp, clean Sauvignon Blanc finish. A great alternative to Cloudy Bay!
Producer : Fairhall Downs | Region : Marlborough | Grape : Sauvignon Blanc | Volume : 75cl | ABV : 13%
OUR PRICE £13.00
malbec igp haute vallee de l'aude
Malbec IGP Haute Vallee de l'Aude "Les Volets" 2018
The nose of mulberries goes on to reveal redcurrant and blackcurrant aromas. There is an intriguing bitter-sweet character of creme de cassis with a touch of underlying parma violets. Extremely fine red fruit flavours fill the mouth, raspberries come to the fore and are backup up with a touch of buttery, chocolate-truffle richness. A beautifully balance wine. Delicious with steak and grilled meat as well as seared tuna.
Producer : Boutinot | Region : Haute Vallee de l'Aude | Grape : Malbec | Volume : 75cl | ABV : 13.5%
OUR PRICE £8.15
