Lockdown Treat Week 10 - wine at silly prices (but you can only have 2 bottles)

Lockdown Treat Week 10  - wine at silly prices (but you can only have 2 bottles) Image

New treats...new world wonders!

As you let out a sigh of relief that the start of lockdown easing has begun with schools going back (hallelujah!!) we thought we would offer up two wines to help you sit back and take stock of what has been an instense 10 weeks with two marvels from the new world.

We want to thank you for all your support, so these wines are at a silly low price. We aren't trying to move stock, we haven't inflated any prices to give a discount, we genuinely aren't making any money on these wines... hence why we are only letting you take TWO BOTTLES MAXIMUM. 

 

Sileni Pinot Gris Cellar Selection


Sileni Pinot Gris Cellar SelectionFresh and citrusy with great mineral character!

The Cellar Selection Pinot Gris has classic aromatic peach flavours along with beautifully balanced acidity and a long finish. It is just off-dry and well suited to seafood, white meats and Asian food styles....more

We have a couple of receipe suggestions to go with this, Judd is planning to pair it with BBC Good Food's delicious Ginger and Coriander Crab cakes but Sarah, who thinks that Coriander is the devil's plant, is opting for Scallops with a Lemon Basil sauce from myrecipes.com.
 
Just goes to show how everyones taste buds are so very different! What would you choose?

Cline Cellars Lodi ZinfandelCline Cellars Lodi Zinfandel

Zinfandel but not as you know it from sunny California!

Zinfandel does not have to mean pink and sweet! This beauty is 100% organic, sustainable and full of dark berry fruit including black cherry and strawberry. Additionally, spice notes and a lasting finish of vanilla from oak ageing and firm, supple tannins add complexity to this wine....more.

The Lodi is another one of our many vegetarian wines so this week we have paired it to a tasty, heartwarming family friendly Spicy Harissa Aubergine Pie, again from BBC Good Food...this does also have coriander in just don't tell Sarah!
