G’Day mate… Boy have we got a couple of hum-dingers for you…

Our featured Wines of the Month are a couple of Australian beauties new to our list and to celebrate, we have reduced the price of each bottle just in time for the Bank Holiday weekend!

Cranswick Lakefield Shiraz 2015

Was £8.49 - now £7.99

Deep plum coloured with purple hues. On the nose intense black cherries supported by hints of vanilla, chocolate and earthy aromas come through. The palate has sweet cherry fruit flavours with silky cocoa and chocolate tannins with balanced acidity giving this wine great length and rounded mouth feel. Viticulture: Grapes are specially selected from small parcels of vines from South Eastern Australia. The vines are carefully cultivated to Cranswicks own specifications, with low yields producing intensely-flavoured grapes of outstanding quality.

Cranswick Lakefield Chardonnay 2016

Was £8.49 - now £7.99

Produced from Chardonnay grapes that are harvested at night to preserve their freshness, which are then lightly crushed ensuring the free run juice is of the finest quality. The juice is then fermented on French and American oak staves to give complexity to the varietal fruit flavours. The wine then remains on oak and the fermented lees for a further two months to give a full rich mouth feel to the wine. This lightly oaked Chardonnay has fresh tropical and stone fruit notes on the nose which compliment the Melon and gooseberry flavours on the palate. The finish is fresh with a zesty acidity that is balanced by the subtle creamy oak.

Of course, if you are not a wine drinker, we have a range of alternative beers, ciders and spirits available for you in store and on our website.
