Free Tasting Saturday 13th July 2019

This Saturday we are celebrating all things Riesling, with 2 very different examples of this delicious and versatile grape on tasting. Both are made by Loosen, the first being the Loosen Erdinger Treppchen Kabinett. A juicy nose of lemon and anise, leads into a palate with peach, pineapple and honeys flavours in this gorgeous, feather-lite wine, that's great with spicy foods. The 2nd is the Dr. Loosen Esatate Riesling, this is drier than our first offering, but still has those honey notes, but this time combined with lemon, apple and a touch of Flying Saucer sweets, yes that's right, Flying Saucer sweets! So join us this Saturday from 12pm - 3pm (ish) and see which your favourite is.

Free Tasting Saturday 6th July 2019

This week we will be joined in store by Charles 'the tie' Hawkins, who will be leading us through 3 delicious wines from the Douro Valley, all made by Quinta do Portal. We have a white, red and a rose and all 3 are a-Douro-ble. Join us from 12pm - 3pm(ish) and hopefully find something that will brighten up your weekend.

Free Tasting Saturday 29th June 2019

This Saturday we have 2 very exciting wines on tasting. An Aussie Chardonnay, that owes more to France (think Limoux) than a traditional Australian take on the grape. Mere et Fils, from First Drop, is voluptuous, full bodied, yet still fresh, with a lovely lemon tart, brioche nose, it's bonza mate. Our 2nd wine this weekend is a Riojan rose. Made 100% from Garnacha, this has soft red fruits on the palate, with aromas of the same, plus lilacs and tropical fruit notes, good acidity and a lovely freshness, in short, magnifico. Join us on Saturday between 12pm - 3pm(ish) and see if you like them as much as wee do.

Free Tasting - Saturday 22nd June 2019

This weekend we have an Australian white that thinks it's from Northern Italy and a Languedoc red that thinks it's from the Rhone! Vivo Arneis is another delicious wine from the people at First Drop, using a grape generally found in Northern Italy, but transplanted to the Adelaide Hills, this is crisp, with citrus and apple notes and frankly, delicious. The red is L'Impudent, a classic Rhonian blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre, but this time transported to the Languedoc. This is ripe fruited, with cherry, dark fruits and hints of spice, yummy stuff. So join us this Saturday from 12pm until 3pm (ish) and pick a favourite imposter!

 

Free tasting Saturday 15th June 2019

This week sees one of our favourite suppliers, Johnny Bingham of Wine Growers, joining us for our tasting and he's bringing 2 wines with him that are brand new into the shop. Our white wine is a Pinot Blanc from the Loire Valley, La Mourandiere. Our red wine is from Chile and is also a single grape wine, Casa Silva's Romano, which is also know as Cesar Noir in France. So join us on Saturday from 12pm through to 3pm(ish) and find yourself a new favourite wine. See you then, chin chin!

Free Tasting Saturday 8th June 2019

This weekend we have 2 of our absolute favourites on tasting. Pouca Roupa red, is a delicious red blend from the Alentajano region of Portugal, smooth red berry flavours and great balanced tannins make this the very definition of 'crowd pleasing'. Our white hails from the Pelopennese in Greece. Mantinia Nassiakos is 100% Moscofilero and has a nose of orange blossom, tropical fruit and citrus and a mouthful of sunny tropical fruit and tangerine, but is still crisp and fresh, lovely stuff. So join us this Saturday from 12pm till 3pm(ish) for some quite delicious wines, with great offers available on both. Arriba, arriba it's carnival fever!

Free tasting Saturday 1st June

Free tasting Saturday May 11th 2019

This weeks tasting features the new vintage of perennial shop favourite, Picpoul Roches Saintes. Still classic Picpoul de Pinet, with those lovely lemon and crisp apple flavours, but (dare we say it?) this just might be the best vintage yet! Joining it on tasting this weekend, is another classic in its own right, Aristocratico's Valpolicella Ripasso, is a great example of Ripasso, with an intense bouquet of ripe fruit, sweet cherry and oak, with a palate of black cherry and a long, complex and well balanced finish.
