Here at The Whalley Wine Shop we have made it our mission to find superb quality wines that really over deliver at the price. We think these offers are so great, we wanted to share a couple with you! There’s a wine for all occasions, whether it’s an everyday drinker, or something more special.
1. KWV Laborie, Blanc de Blancs, South Africa, Now £11.49, SAVE £2.50
The Laborie Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine is produced from Chardonnay grapes. It has creamy biscuit, citrus and melon aromas with a soft rounded mouth-feel and delicate mousse. There’s a chalky texture and lots of richness, with dried fruit and raisin notes. All that comes with really beautiful acidic support.
2. Vasse Felix Filius, Chardonnay, Australia, Now £12.99, SAVE £2.00
This white wine is typified by its bright, elegant fruit, subtle wild complexities and a tight acidic structure, reflecting the vibrancy and purity of this variety of Margeret River. ‘Filius’ translates to ‘son of’ in Latin, reflecting the relationship between this wine and its premier ‘father’.
3. De Bardos, Verdejo, Rueda Spain, Now £9.99, SAVE £2.00
Lovely straw yellow colour, with a green edge. White wine with intense aromas of white fruits, citrus and cut grass with a light touch of balsamic and mineral notes. The taste is fruity, fresh and elegant. It has a soft texture, nice acidity and also a great finish. It would be a perfect match with a seafood paella on a hot summers day.
4. Villa Blanche, Sauvignon Blanc, Pays d’Oc France, Now £8.49, SAVE £1.50
An expressive, elegant nose with notes of citrus such as lemon and pink grapefruit and exotic fruit, such as mango, which evolves to embrace a touch of elderberry. The palate is clean and pure, with the fruit of white peach and apricot, floral notes of iris and a subtly toasted finish.
5. Jean Leon 3055 Rose, Penedès Spain, Now £9.99, SAVE £4.00
This rosé has a distinctive pale pink colour, characterized by intense freshness and elegance. The nose displays pronounced notes of strawberry, cherry and white peach, along with echoes of citrus blossom. The palate stands out for its remarkable freshness, balanced acidity and a long finish.
6. Rosé des Plages Premium, Pays d’Oc France, Now £9.99, SAVE £2.00
Winner of Best Value Rosé, The Wine Merchant Top 100, judges note:
“Nice colour! Very pale onion skin. Lovely nose, too, of purple flowers and strawberry- this is a charming, well balanced wine with wild forest fruits. Value!”
7. Domaine De Grandpré Favorite, Cotes de Provence, Now £11.99, SAVE £2.00
Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Rolle, are farmed organically amongst the estate’s beehives and olive trees. In the winery natural products are used wherever possible and sulphites are kept to a minimum. The Cuvée Favorite is light and elegant, with flavours of strawberry and blossom.
8. Vasse Felix Filius, Cabernet Sauvignon, Australia, NOW £12.99, SAVE £2.00
93 Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front:
“Perfume, earthy lead pencil, dark fruits, a little bay leaf and spice. It’s medium bodied, dark fruit, tobacco, dark chocolate liquorice, herbal tension, crisp and so well defined, firm fine tannin, tight long finish”.
9. Long Barn, Pinot Noir, California, NOW £11.49, SAVE £1.50
Californian Pinot Noir that is pale ruby red in colour, with a lovely soft nose with bright red cherries. On the palate soft notes of bramble fruit and cherries complement subtle sweet spice and fresh acidity. Soft tannins, silky mouthfeel, fresh fruit flavours linger on the palate.
10. Diamond Bay, Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, South Africa, NOW £5.99 or 2 for £11.00
This red wine lets you ride the crest of a wave of flavour all the way from the Cape. The cassis and spice notes of Cabernet Sauvignon are enriched and enhanced by the soft plumminess of the Merlot. A medium to full bodied wine with soft tannins. This is delicious with a wide range of dishes!
