Wines on Tasting in Church Street 17.06.17

%o June 2017

2015 Bourgogne Blanc Domaine Fournillon : £13.99 p/b or 2 for £25. 
Domaine Fournillon is a family affair and one of our favourite producers in the region when you consider their price and quality. Their vineyards cover 16 hectares across Burgundy but with a real focus on Chablis and unaoked Chardonnay. This wine is perfect a weekend of sunshine. Clear and clean in colour with youthful green hints.  Subtle aromas on the nose, with hints of melon, grapes and minerals.  Light and fresh on the palate with no discernible oaking, flavours of stone fruits, apple peel and melon come through.  Stylish with a crisp, clean acidity on the finish.

2016 Rosebud Gabriëlskloof Bot River : £12.99 or £10.39 in a mixed case. 
Gabrielskloof are situated in the Walker Bay in South Africa and due to the proximity to the coast their vineyards benefit from the cooling Atlantic influence lending a lovely combination of aromatics and refreshing acidity to their rosé. 55% Syrah and 45% Viognier this is a wine full of white melon, papaya and rose aroma and flavours and can be drunk on its own as well as enjoyed with a good BBQ!
