WINE OF THE WEEK
Williams Chase Rose Provence
Nestled in the heart of the South of France, Domaine Chase spans over 20 hectares of vines from the prestigious appellations of the Coteaux Varois en Provence and the Côtes de Provence. Head winemaker, Dale Clarke, oversees the entire process and ensures utmost care is taken from the growing of the grapes through to the bottling of the wine.
The finest grapes are aged for months on the fine lees to develop excellent texture and flavour concentration. Aromas of soft red fruit, white peach and melon sit on a bone-dry backdrop of savoury Provençal herbs. The palate has a beautiful rich texture and mouthfeel balanced with bounteous acidity, imparting a wonderful freshness to the wine.
GRAPE: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Vermentino
GIN OF THE WEEK
Wheadon's Rock Samphire & Pink Grapefruit Gin
Wheadon's Gin is handcrafted by the Wheadon family whose generations have been purveyors of fine liquor on Guernsey since 1865.
Distilled in very small batches using traditional copper alembic stills, this particular expression juxtaposes the coastal freshness of locally-foraged rock samphire with the sweetness (and enjoyable bitterness) of pink grapefruit, alongside classic juniper spice.
Serve with Mediterranean tonic and a slice of grapefruit.
