Good deals for August


New Wines and Special Offers

Focussing on New World wines for a change….

Alamos Malbec – RRP €12.99 - now €9.99
Arguably Argentina’s best producer, Catena offers excellent value at every level of their extensive range. The Alamos Malbec is a fine example of Argentina’s best known grape variety with chunky dark fruit, soft tannins and a smooth finish. Excellent at this price.
Hellfire Bay Chardonnay – Western Australia – RRP €11.99 now €9.99
Easy-drinking wine from superstar producer Plantagenet, this is a soft, round fruity wine with just a touch of oak, very nice wine.

Innocent Bystander Shiraz – RRP €16.99 now €14.99
The guy on the label looks highly suspicious if you ask me, but this is a rich, lush Oz Shiraz, soft, full bodied and spicy; you won’t be disappointed.

La Motte Sauvignon Blanc, South Africa – RRP €11.99 now €9.99
This is classy stuff from top Franschoek producer La Motte, Crisp, fresh, grassy flavours – nicely aromatic and balanced.
New Wines

The Bogle range from California fills a gap that we have always had a problem with – namely the decent mid-range Californian. You can get cheap and nasty industrial swill and you can get outrageously expensive good stuff, but a decent bottle at €15 has been elusive. No more! With Old Vine Zin, Cabernet, Pinot, Chardonnay and even a delicious Chenin Blanc, this is a range worth looking at.
