New: Great Value Pinot Noir SE Australia & California

Whale Point Pinot Noir 2015 , South Eastern Australia

This Pinot Noir from South East Australia is a pale ruby red in colour with a soft nose of redcurrants and red cherries. The palate is very smooth with a core of red fruit flavours and sweet spices supported by supple tannins giving structure to wine. The finish is long and smooth with the red cherry and raspberry notes lingering on the palate.

Amazing value for money at £8.72 per bottle.

Firebaugh’s Ferry Pinot Noir, Butterfield Station

California’s wines have a range from the good value for money through to some of the world’s greatest wines. This wine is a great introduction. A delicious soft strawberry nose – typical for Pinot Noir. On the palate a nice easy structure with a balanced finish.

85% Pinot Noir, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Zinfandel from grapes grown all over California.

The name Butterfield Station refers to the Butterfield Overland Stagecoach Line, established in 1857, and carried settlers to the American West. Firebaugh’s Ferry was an important trading post along the Butterfield Overland’s path through Central California. Andrew J. Firebaugh established the ferry on the San Joaquin River for passengers traveling from San Francisco to St. Louis.

Under £12 per bottle this is brilliant value: £11.75 per bottle
