Not Simply Pinot Grigio

£55.00     2 bottles of each;

Pinot with more than normal style....

Vinazza Pinot Grigio,  blended with Garganega the Soave grape.

Terrazze Pinot Grigio  from the terraces of the Moon, special hillside sites in the Trentino home of Pinot Grigio.

Bottega Vinai Pinot Grigio  top of the range, multi award winning Pinot Grigio, also from Trentino. Showing just how much character this undervalued grape can provide.

Pinot Grigio is typically a zesty white wine that is as refreshing as a cold glass of lemonade on a hot Summer's day. AKA Pinot Gris, it's dry with a punchy acidity and flavours of lemons, limes, green apples and honeysuckle. Each of the above examples delivers this and more. 





The BBQ 6

£56.28- 3 red 1 rosé 2 white:

Shiraz, Paarl Heights, Cape, South Africa

Malbec Soldiers Block, Australia

Garnacha, Tres Picos, Spain

Rosé Tabali Pedregoso, Chile

Chenin Blanc Cape Heights, South Africa

Vermentino Aquilaia, Italy

Just because BBQ flavours tend to be strong doesn't mean the wine should lack character, and these certainly don't.. Robust enough to manage the charred solids and yet add to the gustatory experience through developed and succulent flavours, these bottles should be welcomed at any ritual burning.

Verne Malbec, Nieto, Mendoza, Argentina

Bellefontaine Malbec, Languedoc, France

The Bird Malbec, Showdown, California

Alberca Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina

Stone's Throw Malbec, Victoria, Australia

Les Volets Malbec, Aude, France

Might have said "macho" too, but that would be silly. Mind you, it is a grape that likes to deliver plenty of in yer face fruit and flavour. Happily, this lot also offer up interest and style aplenty, while also honouring their country of origin. They are all good examples and together provide a Malbec fan some exciting anti-pandemic foreign travel.

Cabernet, Showdown, Man with the Ax

Cabernet Sauvignon

£53.40- 6 bottles, just the one wine, 10% off single bottle price

One of the most popular Wines of the Week, so maybe a good thought to offer it up like this? If you need any reminding, it is fine stuff - pure, well ripened and carefully blended Cabernet grapes aged for six months in American oak, resulting in a very persuasive ad for Californian reds, not a monster (only 13.5%) but rich and flavour-layered. 


The Listening Station ( Australia )

£45.50 - 6 bottles, 2 of each

Chardonnay

Malbec

Shiraz

From Victoria, inspired by the Australian night sky, these are all three forward, very pleased to meet you types, heart on their sleeve, but with a fruity depth that is hard to resist.
