%o July 2017

2016 Provence Rose Chateau La Mascaronne - £16.99
A classic Cinsault and Grenache blend, beautiful pale colour yet with intense nose of peach and lemon with large depth of flavour and remarkably long finish. This smooth, ripe wine comes from organic grapes grown in clay and stone soil that adds a mineral edge. Spice balances with citrus and red-plum fruits to give a lively wine with a perfumed aftertaste.

2014 Smoking Loon, Old Vine Zinfandel   £15.99
This opens with complex aromas of, plum, and blackberry cobbler. On the palate, black raspberry and cinnamon dominate. In the background, coconut and vanilla indicate the presence of American oak aging. Well-balanced with soft tannins, this Zinfandel will complement a variety of dishes but pairs particularly well with grilled meat. Enjoy this wine with lamb, hamburgers with caramelized onion or rib eye steak.
