  • Gearing up for Giro D’Italia

     

    gearing-up-for-giro-d-italia

    With less than a week to go until the Giro d’Italia cycle race we reckon it will be a ‘sparkling’ event on and off the course.

    We have in stock the Astoria 9.5 wine, which is the official wine of the Giro d’Italia cycle race. This wine is cutting edge and presented in specially branded bottles that will add to the taste of Italy that the Giro d’Italia is bringing to Northern Ireland.

    Giro d’Italia is coming to Northern Ireland from 9 - 11 May 2014.

    The Big Start kicks off three days of excitement, drama and time trials from Titanic Belfast,through the magnificent Causeway Coastal Route and Glens and the historic city of Armagh

  • Celebrate Malbec World Day

    celebrating-malbec-world-day

    Did you know that today is Malbec World Day? Probably not. It dates back only to 2011, and was inspired rather a long way off, in Argentina. It is a homage to the grape variety now earning the South American nation its own place on the world wine stage.

    It's a hard-won distinction. The Malbec vine was introduced from its native France into Argentina in 1853. Domingo Sarmiento, governor of the Mendoza province, then as now the principal vineyard region, is said to have authorised the first plantings on April 17 of that year.

    Sarmiento was a liberal intellectual at a time of mindless macho politics in Argentina, and 15 years later became the country's president. This gives some pretext for calling the Malbec a legacy grape, and the nation's enterprising winemakers have sensibly seized upon it.

  • WOW signed Woodstock The Stocks Shiraz just in!

    The 2006 release of Woodstock's single vineyard Stocks Shiraz sports a new, redesigned white label.

    woodstock-the-stocks-shiraz

    The Shiraz fruit comes from 31 rows of low-yielding north facing century old vines planted on sandy soils at Woodstock Estate. Each ancient vine only yields about three bottles of "The Stocks" per year.

    After 18 months in French oak it's rather oaky but very pleasant and classy, opening to a pronounced fragrance of lovely nutty/cedar/vanilla and walnut oak, supported by regional fruit undertones of red plum and blackberries. Smooth  and vibrant, its medium-bodied palate is beautifully long, announcing a more savoury finish with a pliant extract of grainy tannins and handsome oak overlapping its vivid red/dark fruit flavours. Despite its substantial alcohol there are no  signs of over ripeness, and it's a lot classier than many from the Vale. Drink to 2018.

  • Coleraine High Old Girls’ have something to wine about

    Around 60 past pupils and their partners attended an informative and slightly loud soiree at Coleraine Rugby club on Friday 14th March 2014.

    The wine tasting was new experience for many but one that was truly enjoyable – how could it not when our host from Robb Bros opened the evening by slicing open a bottle of bubbly with a knife! But all entertainment put to one side the range of wines was quirky focusing on a great wine from Uruguay called Garzon Tannat, which sold out on the night!

    We also announced a great new wine that is only available online the Portuguese Coreto Joker 2012, which is no joke of a wine! Check out some of the reviews!
