Wine Tasting

Every Saturday running from 10am until 5pm in our Brewery Shop. 

From our large selection of over 300 wines we'll choose a selection of bottles and open them up for all to sample. It's the perfect opportunity to try some new flavours, find some unexpected new favourites and take home some great wine. 

Anybody can visit the shop and enjoy the sampling during the day, there is no need to book.
 

Here are the wines on sampling this week...

 

Purple Owl 2015 (Simon's wine of the month)

California, USA 14%

£10.99

With a lavish dark purple and ruby colour and a silky texture, this smooth Californian pinot noir has aromas of black cherry and raspberry and a hint of violet.

Silky smooth, rich and intense, this is terrific on its own or try it with chicken in a red wine sauce or your favourite cheeses.

 

Opi Malbec 2015

Mendoza, Argentina 13% abv           

£8.99

This wine is intense and full flavoured with smooth tannins and great length.

With aromas of dark bramble fruit, blackcurrants and hints of violets and spice it makes a great partner for spicy sausages, pasta or beef casserole.

 

Quinta do Casal Branco 2012

Tejo, Portugal 14%

£8.49

A blend of four native Portugese grapes, Quinta do Casal Branco is a fantastic red with sumptuous black fruit and rich chocolatey flavours - all beautifully rounded following careful oak ageing. Serve with roast red meats or hearty casseroles.

 

Charles Back Fairview Grenache 2014

Piekenierskloof, South Africa 14%

£11.99

Legendary winemaker Charles Back loves to champion unusual grapes. This big spicy Grenache is a case in point. Velvety, mouthfilling bramble fruit flavours and a substantial wrap of spice make it a perfect partner for hearty stews and grilled red meat.

 

Palacio de Menade Anniversario Chardonnay 2014                                     

Castilla y Leon Spain 13% abv            

Normally £11.49 now £9.79

To celebrate a decade of bestselling Palacio de Menade, winemaker Ricardo Sanz has created a premium 100% organic Verdejo. Wonderfully aromatic with vibrant citrus fruits and a crisp mineral edge, it's a delicious wine which is a fine match with shellfish, grilled sardines or light salads.    

 

Albarrada 2014                                              

Alentejano, Portugal 12.5% abv

£7.99      

A light and refreshing dry white wine, with lemon and tangerine fruit flavours and plenty of zing. Crisp and citrusy with a delicate mineral hint, it makes a lovely apéritif or partner to pasta with fresh tomato and basil or grilled white fish with spicy salsa.

 

Collovray et Terrier Chardonnay 2014                                              

Languedoc, France 13% abv               

£10.99      

A medium-bodied dry white with creamy nectarine, bright lemon and mineral aromas.

The grapes are grown at an altitude of 530 metres which means they are bathed in sunshine by day, yet chilly nights help to preserve Chardonnay's fresh, stone fruit character.

This fine citrus peach white is ideal on its own or with salmon en croûte or chicken.
