New Wine of the Week!!
Massey Dacta Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Marlborough
New Sauvignon Blanc!! £12.99 down to £9.74 save 25%
Winemaker Ben Glover has been involved in the Marlborough wine industry since the 1980s, and today makes this wine from the fruit of Kerseley Estate, which was planted by his parents on the site of what was previously their own working dairy farm.
Mouthwatering and juicy, this is typical of Marlborough Sauvignon, with its explosive mix of tropical and citrus fruit on the palate, accompanied by intense nettle and tomato vine aromas.
A great match for the zesty, spicy flavours of south-east Asia.
New wine: Massey Dacta Sauvignon BlancDate published: 12/11/14
We have a fab new Sauvignon Blanc from amazing wine maker Ben Glover, the man behind some of our best sellers (Mud House is one!) This is a more premium offering, but what a gem it is! We will be tasting this on our Winter wine evening so come along and try! The name reminds me of my childhood as well, my dad had a red tractor as well!!
Here is a little snippet about the name of the wine....
Running after the 'old man' getting the Massey Ferguson tractor ready to rake the hay on the farm - only I couldn't say that! - hence at the age of two the "Massey Dacta" was born and is carried on in spirit with this gorgeously scented vibrant snow pea, feijoa, and tropical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc notes - please enjoy and savour and I hope to be over soon for a few more farm stories."

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.
Guest Beer of the Month!!!!!!!!Date published: 11/10/14
Proper Job, St Austell 12x500ml Bottles
£24 per case (offer price)
Bottled conditioned, this is a powerfully authentic IPA with a modern twist. Proper Job is brewed with a blend of imported hops, Cascade, Chinook and Willamette for a punch of citrus, pine resin and a hint of spice for a classic IPA. Stylistically this is somewhere between a traditional English IPA, and the new wave American IPAs. Voted Champion Bottled Beer by CAMRA in 2011 and second place in 2013.

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

Tzara - 4.8% - this is a hybrid beer somewhere in between a lager and an ale, so you enjoy the best of both worlds!Fruity, crisp and refreshing, you can see why this won best Kolsch beer in the 2013 world beer awards. £25.80, case of 12 (Bottled ale mixed offer)
Colorado Red - 5.9% - a hopped real ale with subtle flavours of toffee, malt and fragrant hops. Fantastic balance and a citrus finish that makes this very moreish! £27.60, case of 12 (Bottled ale mixed offer)
Saint Petersburg - 7.4% - so named as this is an Imperial Russian Stout. A full bodied stout with plenty of chocolate and malt flavours and a long, coffee tinged finish. One for the stout lovers! £63.60, case of 12 (Bottle ale mixed offer)
Don't miss out, these beers won't be around long!!
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.
