Roses & Rosé - Valentines special, Wine of the Month and 2 New French Whites

Gifts for your Valentine needn't be a difficult task; and we've just made it even easier for you. No need to decide between a bottle of Rosé or a fresh red Rose...make it a treat and get them both! This beautiful Sancerre Rosé with a fresh red Rose only £21.00.

Wine of the Month for this year is a big winter warmer, we have a wonderful Carmenere, Chile's signature grape variety, from the Casablanca Valley. Grant Phelps, the head winemaker at Casas Del Bosque has lead the winery to winning consecutive awards the last 2 years running of Chilean Winemaker of the Year by the IWSC.

A burst of aroma and flavour. Smooth whilst concentrated flavours of plum, black cherries, cocoa with a little sweet vanilla spice & cedarwood from 9 months in French oak, its a satisfying mouthful which lingers for quite some time afterwards. would pair beautifully with Lamb and Mediterranean vegetables.

There is a lot of value to be had with Chile, especially now they have invested heavily in their viticulture & winemaking techniques to ripen their grapes and then produce these fantastic wines. The take away price is just £9.95 from Fullaloves Wines. As always; we'll let you try a sample, buy a glass here or next door in The Glass House.

And finally having been experimenting with a few new tapas dishes such as Garlic Mushrooms, Patatas Bravas, Calamari & Flatbreads, we have added a couple of superb white to accompany them. 

First up a Sauvignon from Sancerre's neighbour in the Loire; Touraine expresses a creamier texture than its counterpart with hints of limes in amongst blackcurrant.

Also; Petit Mouton Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur lie, one of the worlds great seafood wines is the ultimate match for our deep fried Calamari with garlic mayo. The wine is text book Muscadet with lemon, green apple and a hint of salinity that lingers on the finish.

Hope to see you soon to try these fabulous treats!
