Our top Wedding Wines!

January 29, 2017

 

 

To celebrate our new venue (and newly installed bar!) we were lucky enough to have Imogen Taylor, from 'Swig' wines treat us to a bespoke wine tasting this month.

 

Swig are a small group that travels around the world looking for delicious and undiscovered wines. Many of their wines are rare gems that you won't find anywhere else, often sourced from small family owned wineries. 

 

Here is Imogen's wedding wine selection for 2017, and I have to say... it's not just the price point we like! We will be organising some themed wine tasting evenings in the summer this year, so watch this space!

 

 

Domaine Horgelus Sauvignon Blanc & Gros Manseng 2016, Gascony, France

 

A zippy little Sauvignon Blanc led blend from the hillsides of Gascony. Brimming with fresh gooseberry, elderflower and citrus notes – always a crowd pleaser.

 

"As light as a feather and as magical as Tinkerbell’s wand, Horgelus is a fabulous aperitif white with a tingly, citrus and grapefruit flavour with cleansing acidity and a perky aftertaste.” Matthew Jukes, the Daily Mail

 

 

 

A A Badenhorst “Secateurs” Chenin Blanc 2015, Swartland, South Africa

 

100% Chenin Blanc from sun baked, unirrigated vineyards in the super hot Swartland. Ripe peaches, orange blossom, a hint of flint and a honeyed, long finish.

 

“Fragrant floral notes, with honey-tinged apricots lifted with lime zest flavours. There’s also a pinch of spice that comes through on the long finish.” - Decanter Magazine

 

Edoardo Miroglio “Soli” Pinot Noir 2014, Elonovo, Bulgaria

 

Just what you’re looking for in Pinot Noir – pale in the glass, elegant and with the perfect balance of red fruit character and those quintessential savoury Pinot aromas. This one is from Bulgaria, yes, Bulgaria, but it never fails to surprise.

 

"Try Swig's amazing Bulgarian Pinot Noir, Edoardo Miroglio's Soli from Thracia, whose fine, tangy, smoky, deeply elegant style would even make Burgundians feel uneasy". - Jane MacQuitty, The Times.

 

 

Bodegas Pascual “Buro” 2012,  Ribera del Duero, Spain

 

100% Tempranillo, oak aged for 10 months and cellared before release so it’s just perfect for drinking now! Smooth, velvety and full bodied, with plenty of soft spice, red and black fruits.

 

“This must be one of the best-value wines in Ribera del Duero, showing bright cherry, coffee and tobacco characters.” Decanter Magazine
