EASTER SPECIAL, EGGSELLENT DEALS - ONE WEEK ONLY!!!Date published: 24/03/15
Rioja Reserva 2010 CVNE
£13.49 (save 33%) £8.99
Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España, CVNE, was founded in 1879 in and is still family owned. Their wines are made in the original Haro winery and hail back to the first wines produced here, then sold as 'Cuné Clairette'- a Bordeaux lookalike.
A soft luxurious wine, mid garnet in colour with a lovely brambly nose and a hint of spice. Nuances of warm leather, caramel and coffee over rich autumn fruit. Excellent balance and a lingering finish.
Try served with grilled lamb, duck and most rich meats.
Vieux Remparts 2012 Lussac St-Emilion
£11.99 (Save 33%) £7.99
Lussac is one of five villages to the northeast of St-Emilion with the right to add that name to their own. Lussac makes excellent 'satellite' wines, slightly more rustic than its big brother, but rounded and with great charm.
This is a rich, full bodied wine showing great concentration of flavour. With juicy black fruit on the nose and palate backed up by a smoky sandalwood character.
This will make a great accompaniment to hearty meat dishes and strong cheeses
25% Off all Australian Wines!Date published: 19/03/15
We currently have 25% off all Australian wines, mix and match! We will also be kicking of this fantastic promotion with a spotlight tasting week running from Friday 20th until Thursday 26th March.
Pilsner UrquellDate published: 06/03/15
Then you'll love Pilsner Urquell!
Meaning “Pilsner from the original source”
This is the trademark of a golden lager born in the Bohemian city of Plzen.
Pouring a lovely golden colour, this beer has a subtle sweet malty character with a hint of honey and herbal notes.
A crisp, dry and malty lager which would certainly partner well with pork, grilled meats and even lighter seafood dishes.
And just when the weather is becoming nice again.....
£1 a bottle , £24 a Case!
Beer of the Week: Oakham CitraDate published: 04/03/15
Beer of the Week
Oakham Ales were the first brewery in the UK to use the American Citra hop. This single hop beer was first made as a seasonal special, but proved so popular is has now become one of Oakham's most successful core lines. A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish; this is a very modern version of a classic golden ale. Citra has won many awards since the first brew in 2011, culminating in being awarded the Champion Golden Ale at the CAMRA Great British Beer awards in 2014.
Established in Oakham, Rutland, in 1993, the brewery moved to Peterborough in 1998 where their brewery tap is the largest brewpub in Europe!

Wines of the Week: New arrivals - Russian Jack from NZ!
Russian Jack Wines from New Zealand
Who was Russian Jack?
Russian Jack (formally known as Barrett Crumen) was a sailor of either Latvian or Ukrainian origin who jumped ship in Wellington. He spent the next 53 years wandering along the lanes of Wairarapa, working as a swagger. Swaggers cleared the scrub from the land, leaving rich, fertile lands which became the vineyards of Martinborough. There is a statue celebrating Russian Jack’s life in Masterton.
The Russian Jack Pinot Noir
The Russian Jack is a wonderful introduction to Martinborough Pinot Noir. The colour is vibrant and deep with aromas of plum and raspberry and spicy cinnamon characteristics.
£15.99 buy 2 save 25% = £11.99
The Russian Jack Sauvignon Blanc
From a winery that recently won the coveted “Best Sauvignon Blanc in New Zealand” at the Royal Easter Show, this wine demands to be sampled.
Aromas and flavours of lime, passion fruit and elderflower produce a clean, zippy and refreshing wine.
£11.99 buy 2 save 25% = £8.99
Why buy these wines? They are from a top producer, Martinborough Vineyard, who make the outstanding Te Tera and Burnt Spur wines.
Both open to taste now!
Beer of the Week:Alhambra 1925 open to taste!Date published: 25/02/15
Beer of the Week
Alhambra 1925 Reserva 6*330ml Bottles, 6.4%
The Alhambra brewery was founded in Granada, Andalusia, in 1925 and is named after the city's magnificent Alhambra Palace. Regarded as the leading craft brewery in Spain, despite the arrival of modern equipment little has changed in the overall brewing process since 1925. All Alhambra beers are made with no additives and the water used is still drawn from the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The traditional method employed by Alhambra for this beer involves slow, natural fermentation over a period of 35 days. This strong lager has a deep golden colour, and distinctive hop and caramel aromas. The unique bottle is a nod to the bottles used originally in 1925 when the brewery was founded - a Spanish icon, it has no label with all the branding and legal information embossed on the bottle.
"Pours a good fluffy head. Golden amber with lightly toasted aromas. Full-bodied, with a constant, well-rounded and very pleasing taste. Perfect balance of bitter and sweet flavours, with notes ranging from bitter orange to a slightly caramel finish"

The £4.99 Range (Quintessential Quaffers and Perfect Party )Date published: 15/10/14
Silver Ghost Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Central Valley
Chile's Central Valley is the very hub of the country's wine production. Extending southwards from the capital Santiago, between the Andes and the Coastal Range of mountains, it is the home of many of the first vineyards to have been planted by European vignerons.
Invitingly fruity, offering a juicy citrus and gooseberry backbone overlaid with notes of lime zest and fresh green apples. Crisp acidity provides maximum refreshment.
Chill well and enjoy on its own or with simply fresh pasta dishes.Silver Ghost Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Central Valley
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted grape in Chile, and was among the first of the noble varieties to have been brought over from Europe in the mid-1800's. This example is made by one of the Central Valley's major wineries, based in Cachapoal.
A medium-bodied, fruit-driven style of Cabernet that offers rounded, ripe red berry fruit with a plummy and easy-going feel. Hints of green pepper and subtle oak notes on the nose.
A versatile pairing for many foods, from spicy kebabs to roasted vegBricchetto Trebbiano 2013 IGT Rubicone
Under various different names and guises, Trebbiano is one of Europe's most extensively planted white grape varieties, found in innumerable blends and styles, but it is generally only the Italians who use it to make this kind of single-varietal dry white.
Fresh and straightforward, this wine offers plenty of soft citrus, white peach and pear fruit, with subtle white flower aromatics. Dry, soft-edged and clean on the finish.
Chill well and enjoy on its own, or with lightly-dressed salads or creamy spaghetti dishes.Bricchetto Sangiovese 2013 IGT Rubicone
Made by one of Italy's major cooperatives, this is a superb value Sangiovese from Rubicone, a relatively modern IGT region of central Italy in which many wineries have begun to specialise in single-varietal wines such as this.
A light and approachable red, with Sangiovese's typical redcurrant and cherry fruit characters in abundance. Lithe tannins and snappy acidity make for an easy-drinking feel.
A great all-rounder, easy to pair with a wide range of pasta dishes or Mediterranean salads.El Torito Merlot 2013 Valdepeñas
The southerly location of Valdepeñas gives it a very warm, arid continental climate, which particularly suits robust red grape varieties that benefit from the abundant sunshine and lengthy ripening season that this affords.
Cool fermented for a youthful, fruit driven style, this is a soft and plummy Merlot with supple tannins and a juicy palate full of ripe cherry and berry flavours.
Enjoy with barbecued ribs or sausage casserole.El Torito Chardonnay 2013 Valdepeñas
Valdepeñas is one of Spain's more southerly wine regions, and is located entirely within the larger La Mancha region. Its reputation for quality and value has led to an increasing array of grapes being cultivated, including international white varieties.
A soft, fruity and easy-drinking Chardonnay, full of golden apple and ripe peach flavours, complemented by gentle tropical notes. Light and refreshing yet lush and delicately creamy on the finish.
Enjoy on its own or with lightly spiced chicken dishes.

It's Here - The Craft Beer Revolution!
Gone are the days of boring beer. Walk into any pub, bar or restaurant and you can get so more than just a carling on draught! Micro-breweries are popping up everywhere and why not - there is so much variation with the humble hop and barley that there is ample opportunity to carve a little niche in a rapidly expanding market.
We like to think that, at Majestic, we have spent our time searching, researching and of course, tasting our way around as many craft breweries as possible. We have some great beers and our range is expanding every day. And, whats more, if you buy any two of our craft ales, you save £6!!
Here are just a few beers that you must try this summer. Don't ask questions, just trust us!
Einstok Icelandic White Ale - £9.99
From the north of Iceland, this is modelled on the traditional Belgian witbier. Infused with coriander and orange peel, this is a zesty little thing. It maintains a fine balance between full bodied and light and, ultimately, is incredibly refreshing after a long day at work!
Punk IPA - £9.99
The growing empire of Scottish company Brewdog is a testament to their skill and dedication in making fine beer. Punk IPA is a light, golden beer with plenty of tropical fruits and a hit of refreshing citrus.
Brooklyn Summer Ale - £9.99
From the guys at Brooklyn comes a slightly lighter, fresher beer. Light enough for lager lovers and meaty enough for ale lovers, this is the perfect blend! Crisp and clean, this is those who enjoy a flavoursome tipple

Help; my wine is corked!Date published: 26/05/14
Unfortunately, cork taint is an inevitable problem when sealing wine with natural cork. Here at Majestic, however, we feel it shouldn't cause you any hassle!
It's as easy as pie for us to replace; either we can credit the value of the bottle against your next order, or we can do a simple swap and change for you.
If ordering online or over the phone, be sure to put a note in the delivery instructions space to say that you have a bottle you'd like to return due to it being corked or just mention it to us when ordering over the phone. We can then arrange to collect and replace the offending bottle when delivering.
If you prefer to see our smiling faces in store, you can return the bottle to us here and we can exchange it!
All we ask that you keep the bottle and some of the wine inside, so that we can record the nature of the fault and helping to assist our suppliers in their quality control.
Why doesn't wine taste like grapes?!Date published: 10/03/14
It is a little ironic that wine is made entirely from grapes and yet if you have a glass, it rarely tastes like grapes. In fact, it can taste of almost anything, from pineapple to lemon (for white wine), from plum, to leather (in the case of red wine).
Some people even think that small amounts of these fruits are added to wine to change the flavour, but it is in fact the extremely complex process of wine-making which actually changes the chemical compounds found in the grapes so that they resemble those found in other fruits.
Almost every step of the wine-making process can change the flavour and body of the wine, for example the can undergo Malalactic Fermentation, which changes the harsh Malic Acid (acid found in apples, lemons etc) into Lactic Acid (acids found in dairy). New World Chardonnay often undergoes this process to turn an appley, citrusy wine into a creamy, buttery wine.
If you would like to know more about these processes, simply ask a member of staff next time you are in store and they will be happy to go into more detail.
