Dear Friends

A very big thank you for those who popped in last Sunday for the tasting.
Here are some notes about the wines we tried:

Ibis £8.99 – a pink frizzante prosecco, delicate and food versatile. Medium dry with strawberry & raspberry notes. Very easy drinking and delicious in a sunny day.

Brookford Chardonnay/Semillon £7.49 – This unusual blend comes from Australia, delivering delicious fresh peach and melon notes on the palate. Medium body and ideal to go with grilled sea bass.

A-mano Bianco £9.99 – Made from 60% Fiano, 30% Falanghina and 10% Verdeca grapes, It is fresh and a delightful aperitif. A perfect match for seafood, chicken and salads, we adore it in spring with asparagus and in the summer with a fresh pasta like spinach ravioli.

Vina Barredero £11.99 –*** Star Wine of the day*** Made from the Zalema grape and coming from the far south west of spain in the region of Huelva.This wine has a bright straw coloured appearance,aromas of white peach and pineapple with hints of wild herbs.A refreshing drink with bags of citrus flavours. Serve between 8-10ºC.

Montes Pinot Noir £9.99 -A truly Chilean hero. Very fruity with aromas of raspberries, strawberries, and cherries along with a floral touch a bit of well-integrated oak that lends complexity. The light-bodied palate is delicate and fresh with soft and silky tannins and excellent acidity. The red fruit reappears along with a touch of anise and the finish is perfumed and fresh with good balance.

Latium Valpolicella £11.99 – *** Highly commended*** Made from a blend of Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta, Croatina, this Valpolicella it is of pleasant olfactory impact, notes of red berry fruit on the palate, soft and easy to drink. A good integration among the various flavours, dominating red fruits and a hint of dark-cherries.

Cheers!
