Here we go again ladies and gents, the Saturday LIVE tasting with Tom and Baz LIVE....from Prestwich!! 3 tremendous wines, matched cheeses and a whole load of fun..In In is the new Out Out...Until we can be In whilst Out...shakin' it all about!
Still starting at 6pm tho... :)
The wines are delivered to your door, with matched cheeses and we then taste it together online, we will be live streaming on Facebook and Instagram LIVE and back on Zoom too!! Banging wines and 2 pillocks hosting...or 1 pillock and Barry...
As we say, we are applying the 'new normal' format for this tasting - the 'portions' are 100ml 'Tasters' and 500ml 'Carafes' too as people start to tone down the lockdown alcoholism. Or maybe you aren't...? We won't tell you how to live your life!!!
Without further ado...here are the wines for this week;
We kick off with the superb tropical slurper, the Wine Maker Reserve Sauvignon Blanc by Yealands in Marlborough, Nu Zillun. Peach yogurt and amazing sensual texture!! Following that is the eye candy, and mouth candy (phrasing) that is the Pax Aeterna by Chaffey Bros - 100% Grenache from the Barossa. We finish with...wait for it....drum roll.....ZOLLA PRIMITIVO!!! We were going to wait for our birthday tasting to crack this one, but balls to it...like petulant children WE WANT IT NOW!! Big silky fruit and packing a punch Mike Tyson coming out of retirement...in a silk kimono...or something...
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!

Aromas of dried thyme and blackcurrant on the nose. The palate is rich and textured with a full spectrum of ripe herbal and savoury notes, fresh acidity that all come together in perfect harmony! Notes of Apricot Yogurt. The mid-palate is structured and rich, yet elegant.
The top of our range, our Yealands Estate wines reflect the expertise of our winemakers and the very best our land has to offer.

Made in a similar style to that of 'Beaujolais Nouveau' this juicy red wine shows an exciting perfumed aroma, bursting with fresh cranberry, anise and spice. The palate is full of crunchy red fruits with a hint of savoury complexity. Energetic and unashamedly delicious, some may even say it's quietly quaffable. This wine is ultimate summer red, chill it down and smash about 3 bottles in your garden!!

This little might lack in size but it certainly packs a punch in flavour! #flavourtown
This wine is ruby red in colour with a violet hue. It has intense aromas of red cherries, blackberries and hints of spice and leather. These aromas follow through on to the palate which is rich and velvety! a G2G Classic!
