starting tomorrow and every Saturday leading into Christmas I will be having a few interesting things open for tasting. So come in between 12.00pm and 3.30pm to taste any or all of the following.
Blush Gin - Rhubarb infused
Tasting Notes: refined juniper dancing with tangy fresh rhubarb, hints of strawberry, citrus and rose hip.

Triple distilled Hand crafted New Zealand made Gin-
Kerpen Handpicked Riesling "Mosel" 2014

This handpicked Riesling grabbing our attention for its incredible quality to price ratio. Classically stone fruited with apricots drizzled in honey giving way to a clean zippy acid line and slatey, mineral finish, this medium sweet Riesling is an awesome low alcohol option for those who demand a little more from their wines.


Argiolas Isola del Sole Rosso 2015 (Sardinia)

This is a great wine for the price. Perhaps not the most complex wine, but still hits the high notes. Some funk and fruit on the nose, with a nice mix of red berries, herbs and spice on the palate, and ample acidity on the finish.


Clevedon Hills "Leighton's Port"

A rich ruby port with a harmonious blend of grape varieties grown at Clevedon Hills Estate and Vin Alto. Many years of ageing has produced unique port, which can be enjoyed now or in years to come. A great companion for mature cheese or savour with friends after your meal."


See you tomorrow Regards David
