The Naked Grape

The Naked Grape is always showcasing many wines, fizz and gin discovered by MD Simon Evans. Drop in to try something new and exciting at The Naked Grape open 7 days a week on the High Street (0pposite Barclays Bank).

This month’s recommendation from Simon:

It’s quite possible just to enjoy the aroma of the Chilean Araucano Humo Blanco and not actually drink it, that’s how good the nose is!

However delving into the supple and beautiful fruit filled palate is definitely worth while. A rich blueberry and oak driven palate awaits, as smooth as silk and so pure.

You can see why this is my favourite wine!
