It’s all over for another year (insert joy, anger, annoyance, whatever you want here). But as a wise man once said time and tide wait for no man so on we trundle first off let me offer a belated Christmas greeting from us all here in Woodberrys thanks to so many of your efforts to shop with us we had a busy lead in an as a result we neglect our blogging duties, but now the festive season is drawing to a close we would like to say we’re back and we have plenty to say. First up just a little note about New Years we have offers on Prosecco, Cava and Champagne for the big night. We have bubbles in pink and clear from €9.95 upwards. The wonderful Mionetto ‘Il Prosecco’ is on promotion at the minute for €9.95 and we have 20% off Mionetto’s Sergio (RRP €19.95 now €15.96) their high-end Prosecco along with offers on Louis Roederer Brut and the wonderful and limited of O’Leary Walkers ‘Hurtle’ Vintage 2004 Brut.

The Hurtle is named after Nick Walkers Grandfather Hurtle Walker who trained as a sparkling winemaker in France before the great war by Monsieur Duray and Leon Mazure. He made sparkling wine up until his death in 1975 and his son Norm is also a sparkling winemaker with over 50 different wine companies in a career that spans decades. Nick has made this wonderful Pinot Noir Chardonnay sparkling wine to continue the family tradition and keep us fizzing over the New Year. The wine has a creamy, light mousse. Straw colour with a salmon tinge. The bouquet shows complexity from time on yeast lees, toast, strawberry and cream. The palate follows on with creamy fruit with great finesse and length, balanced with clean fresh acidity. A great aperitif style, perfrect for popping over the New Years. €29.95 NOW €23.96.
