Wine tips for 2017

***

Cellar Wines, Ripley

Person interviewed: Andy Walton, boutique manager

1. Res Fortes Blanc Cotes de Rousillon 2014, £14

A wonderful dry white with so much flavour, something a little bit different which seemed to get customers hooked as they came back for case after case!

2. Bortomiol Prior Prosecco 2014, £14.70

A vintage Prosecco which is a cut above most of the prosecco’s on the market currently and it also gives some well known champagne brands a run for it’s money.

3. Chateau Tayet, Bordeaux Superieur 2010, £15

From the much lauded 2010 vintage in Bordeaux this is extremely classy claret for the price.

• Cellar Wines, The Old Cellar, High Street, Ripley GU23 6BB. Tel: 01483 610610. Web: cellarwines.co.uk

Corkage, Guildford

Person interviewed: Deborah Doré, co-owner

1. Sussex Reserve, Nutbourne Vineyard, £15

This internationally acclaimed wine from a small Sussex vineyard earns a place on our wines by the glass list and was our most popular white.

2. Rioja Gran Reserva ‘Magister Bibendi’ 2005, Navarrsotillo, £21.05

A sumptuous Rioja, this wine was a bestseller not only for the quality of the wine but also the beautiful style of the bottle. It was a popular gift choice.

3. Etna Bianco, Cottanera, £19.50

Produced from vines grown in volcanic soil at the base of Mount Etna, this wine reflects the terroir with citrus underscored by fresh mineral notes. Delicious and unusual.

• Corkage, 60 Quarry Street, Guildford GU1 3UA. Tel: 01483 576107. Web: corkage.co.uk

Taurus Wines, Bramley

Person interviewed: Rupert Pritchett, proprietor

1. Le Dolci Colline Prosecco, £8.99

This popular prosecco shows no sign of losing popularity as it flies off our shelves and into glasses all around Surrey. A favourite for couples choosing their wedding wines.

2. Champagne Henri Mandois Brut NV, £26.99

Our second most popular fizz, made by a family owned winery from organically grown premier cru fruit this Champagne always impresses with toasty, brioche flavours that beats most more expensive branded champagnes hands down.

3. M de Minuty Rose 2015, £11.99

This is the best-selling rose in St Tropez... and Surrey! A light, fresh, dry wine with a hit of wild strawberry and raspberry jam - we had to ship more direct from the vineyard mid-way through the summer to meet demand.

• Taurus Wines, Whipley Manor Farm, Bramley GU5 0LL. Tel: 01483 548484. Web: tauruswines.co.uk
