Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. It’s the wine tasting that you’ve all been waiting for.
Tannins are responsible for that drying sensation in your mouth when you drink wine. If you enjoy that experience you maybe more inclined towards red wines that are higher in tannin. If you don’t like it, or have tannin sensitivity, you may prefer white. Of course you may like both, which is fine too!
White wines are fantastic and extremely versatile when it comes to pairing with food. They generally contain less sugar than their red counterparts. There is a massive amount of variety in white wines, from crisp and refreshingly bone dry all the way to rich and luscious dessert wines that feel luxurious and unctuous. They can be oaked and unoaked, undergo extra processes to make them feel full-bodied or kept close to the lovely fruity flavours that people adore. They can even be Sparkling! There is something for everyone in the white wine world.
Join us at Bottles Wine Shop for an amazing evening exploring all that white wine can give to us, with trained sommeliers on hand to guide you through and answer any questions you might have. Paired nibbles will be accompanying the wines and discounts are available for wines purchased on the night.
