Lanzos White – Sauvignon / Viura – Was €11, now €9
This is really well-made, zesty white from
the Rueda region of Spain. Local grape
variety Viura is blended with the betterknown
Sauvignon Blanc to give a fresh,
fruity white that is great on its own or with
lightish food.

Lanzos Red – Tempranillo – Was €11, now €9

given the slightly unimaginative name of
Tinta de Toro. What you get is a mediumbodied,
gutsy, slightly spicy, slightly
leathery red, bursting with red berry fruits.
Soft and easy drinking and a great allrounder
at a great price.

Domaine de Cabrol Picpoul de Pinet 2010 – was €12, now €10
Want a crisp, fresh summery white? Step back
from the Pinot Grigio, put down that New
Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and try this for real
refreshment. From the shores of the
Mediterranean, this is crisp and fresh with
lovely citrus tang and the nice feeling of
knowing you are drinking a real wine with
character. One of the Languedoc’s hidden

Lombeline Gamay 2009 – Loire Valley – was €12 now €9
2009 was an exceptional year in Loire valley for the red

bouquet of this Gamay is pure cherry and strawberries with
a hint of spices. On the palate there is a superb, harmonious
smoothness, tender structure with lovely minerality. Classic
summery wine, serve it a little bit chilled .Delicious now
with cold meat.
