It’s always an education calling in at Bradley’s Wine Bar & Restaurant. Owner, Don and sommelier Richard are so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the wines they source.


Wine of the Week:  Torrontés (torr-en-tes), Michel Torino, Argentina


“This is a really surprising white wine in that it is virtually unknown outside of its home country of Argentina. The grape is grown with most success at very high altitudes 1700m (5300ft) where there is a cold, dry climate with lots of sunshine. I rate this wine as a number 3 on a scale of 1-9 where 1 is bone dry and 9 is sticky sweet. It has pronounced aromas of peaches and apricots and a smooth texture. Ideal with chicken and smoked fish dishes.”


Bradley’s Wine Bar & Restaurant source fine wines from around the World that will not be found in the supermarkets. For more information, Don can be contacted on 01553 621309.
