White Wine

Why is "white" wine, not white at all, but yellow, golden or straw-like in colour? Its colour can be derived from an assortment of grape varieties. White wines are made from the grape juice and grape skin of green, gold or yellowish colored grapes or from just the juice (not the skin) of select red grapes (as in some Champagnes).

Red Wine

  It is the grape skins that are responsible for the red wine’s distinct color spectrum. The skins are in contact with the grape’s juice during the fermentation process, allowing the dispersion of both color and tannins. The individual wine’s particular red hue depends on the grape type used in the process and the length of time the skin’s pigmentation is in contact with juice.

Rosé

Traditionally, the skins of a red grape are allowed to have brief contact with the grape juice. The shorter the contact time with the skins, the lighter the wine's color will be. Extended time with juice and skins yields some amazing, eye catching color variations from vibrant orangey-pink to nothing less than a vivid hot pink. Sparkling Rosés are traditionally made with a blend of red and white grapes

75cl Rose Zinfandel  £17.95
 

Packed with soft refreshing fruit fl avours. (USA)

Sparkling & Champagne

The bubbles of sparkling wines are formed during a second fermentation process. For the second fermentation the winemaker takes still wine and adds a few grams of sugar and a few grams of yeast. This yeast and sugar convert to carbon dioxide (bubbles) and, of course alcohol. This conversion makes for millions of bubbles trapped in a very small space, sending the pressure soaring to about 80 psi in the typical bottle of sparkling wine.

Wines by the Glass

  Many people new to wine tasting don't realize that the shape and size of the wine glass affects how the wine tastes. For the best wine drinking experience, and for full appreciation of the vintage, choose the correct type of wine glass for the wine. It doesn't need to be a fussy process, nor an expensive one. Just remember the basic principle is that the type of glass chosen depends on the characteristics of the wine. There are four basic types of glasses. Chablis, Bordeaux, Burgundy or Balloon Tulip or Flute. They go by different names, but these are the most common.
