CO-OP MEMBER WINES
Co-op member wines of the season
Best for co-op members! This is the most important selection principle of co-member wines. Of course, we also consider variety, harmony of tastes, high quality and the environment. No wonder it's easy to find the right wine for each occasion from the magnificent selection: to emphasise the taste of dishes or joyfully bubbling socialising. Available from S Group restaurants throughout Finland.
Banrock Station Shiraz 19.95/29.95 €
Australia • Dark ruby-red and generous Shiraz with ripe plum and dark berry tones. The taste is completed with stylishly spicy aromas of black pepper and clove. Soft tannins support the balanced body of the wine. Recommended with beef, lamb and grilled dishes. Particularly well-suited for pepper steaks and mushroom-based dishes. • 75 cl
Banrock Station Chardonnay 19.95/29.95 €
Australia • Banrock Station Chardonnay is tropically fruity. Peach, melon and honey melon notes accompanied with fresh citrus. Soft creamy palate, good acidity balance and pleasantly lingering aftertaste. Recommended with chicken, turkey, white meats, fish, seafood and hearty salads. • 75 cl
Banrock Station Shiraz Rosé 19.95/29.95 €
Limited availability • Australia • Pink, generous and fresh rosé with soft tannins to give it body. Intense berry tones. Strawberry, cherry and citrus aromas on the nose accompanied with mild spiciness. Pleasantly lingering aftertaste. • 75 cl
Barone Montalto Vino Spumante Brut 19.95/29.95 €
Italy • Barone Montalto Vino Spumante Brut is made from four different grape varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano and Cortese – which originate from the Belice valley on the west side of Sicily. Grapes are picked at harvest time during the night when the air temperature is at its lowest. This way the freshness, fruitiness and acidity of the grapes are emphasised in the wine. Recommended with hearty salads, fish and seafood, as well as light meat dishes. The wine is very well-suited for socialising and as an aperitif. • 75 cl
Nicolas Feuillatte Brut 39.95/69.95 €
France • Light golden yellow Nicolas Feuillatte Brut is fruity, soft and smoothly creamy. The nose is strongly fruity. You can sense fresh apples, sweet pears and fresh citrus fruits in it. Finish is long, stylish and lively. A magnificent drink to enjoy on its own, to raise the spirits and as an aperitif, which is also well-suited for fish and seafood dishes. • 75 cl
