Bubbles.

Bianco Nera Prosecco Spumante DOC, Veneto, Italy.

The UK is the biggest export market for Prosecco and the popularity of these wonderful sparkling wines rightly continues to increase.  This delicious Prosecco, which is perfect for the Charlbury Beer Festival, has a light pale straw colour with a delicate fizz, it has an aromatic and fruity nose and body, with hints of apples and honey.

 

White wines.  

The Boathouse Sauvignon Blanc, Central Valley, Chile.

A wonderful Sauvignon Blanc from Central Valley, Chile - its dry, fruity and zesty with refreshing acidity Enjoy!

Monte di Cello Pinot Grigio 2014, Veneto, Italy 

This is a classic easy drinking Pinot Grigio, with floral aromas and peach and apricot flavours. Ideal for a sunny Charlbury Beer Festival.

 

Rosé wine.

Beauvignac Grenache Rosé 2015, Pays d'Oc, France.

Attractive salmon pink colour with a very pale hue, this rosé is well-balanced and classy. Ripe and rounded strawberries dominate the nose and on the palate, floral, mineral and savory characteristics give it complexity.

 

Red wines.

Gauchezco Malbec Classico 2013, Mendoza, Argentina.

Gauchezco are producing high class wines and their Malbec Classico has an intense and lively deep red purple colour.  On the nose there is fruity notes of plum, raspberry, dry fig and raisins along with floral notes of violets.  A complex and harmonious wine, more medium-bodied in style, with a soft and velvety finish. Enjoy as Malbec is the red grape variety of the moment!

Finca Amalia Tempranillo Joven Rioja, Spain.

A beautifully aromatic wine, with plenty of rich, red berry fruit on the nose, combined with ripe red cherry, sweet vanilla spice and a long finish.

 

2017 Gins.

We served a selection of Greenall's Gins at the festival.

Eponymous Gin.

A smooth tasting gin of citrus and juniper blended with spring water, perfect for a summer's day at a country festival (just like our's!).

Bloom London Dry Gin.

Bloom is a premium London Dry Gin from Greenall’s distillery portfolio. Infused with botanicals such as chamomile, honeysuckle and pomelo, the gin captures the uplifting sense of spring gardens.

Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin.

Is an aromatic take on the premium gin category. On the nose it has a heady spice mix with cardamom very much raising its hand above the rest of the class. There’s also a cheeky, zesty citrus and a discernible sweetness of orange.
