La Salette, IGP Côtes de Gascogne Rouge, 2020

This is a light, deliriously purple-hued wine which one could easily serve lightly chilled with lunch or with spicy food: the French would call it "frais", fresh. There's a sense of fresh ripe strawberries and raspberries, a gentle fragrance, plenty of flesh and minimal tannins. Very easy-drinking, a blend of Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Now-2023

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.

Friendly helpful people selling good quality interesting wines from many countries and at competitive prices. Wines you will NOT find in the supermarket! Free local delivery has been a boon during lockdown. What's not to love about SVS???
