|Welcome to our November New Wines newsletter, where we highlight three of our favourite new arrivals, with a special 10% discount code for you.|
Woodchester Valley Orpheus Bacchus 2017 – £17.99
England’s signature still wine grape, Bacchus, has been on the up-and-up for the past few years. The most respected consumer wine magazine in the world, Decanter, devoted a whole article to English Bacchus in their September 2019 edition. We stocked 7 of the 18 wines they highlighted, but hadn’t managed to get hold of an allocation of the exceptional Woodchester Valley Orpheus Bacchus 2017 – until now!
The Orpheus is a full spectrum Bacchus, from elderflower to lychee, with amazing intensity and length. Yet while it has intensity it retains balance among the flavour elements – it is not dominated by hedgerow notes or gooseberry as some powerful Bacchus wines are, but rather displays a penetrating yet wonderfully rounded array of aromas.
Readers of this newsletter can enter the discount code NOV19NEWS at the checkout to get 10% off this wonderful wine. The code also applies to the two other highlighted wines below.
BuyA’Beckett’s Penruddocke Red Pinot Noir 2018 – £16.49
This wine’s beautiful pale red colour belies its depth of flavour – classic cool climate Pinot with raspberry and cherry notes. A wonderful match for roast lamb or gammon steaks, it can also be enjoyed slightly chilled on its own.View more information »Denbies Wine Estate Redlands NV – £14.99
England’s largest single site vineyard is nestled in the Surrey Hills in a natural amphitheatre that captures the sun, ripening the grapes to produce this red wine brimming with red and black fruit flavours, nicely enhanced by some time in oak.
