1 bottle of:
Picpoul de Pinet 2015 Le Jade, Languedoc-Roussillon, FranceThis is a deliciously understated wine, a touch of savoury brininess, a hint of white flowers, and before you know it, the contents of the bottle have disappeared into history. It is a watery wine in the best sense, thirst quenching and utterly appropriate with linguine of crab with chilli, garlic and parsley.
Chateau Saint-Cyrgues Blanc 2015, Rhone Valley, France Château Saint-Cyrgues is beginning to produce quality wines across the board. In the vineyard natural remedies are encouraged and work is done by hand. The Grenache Blanc blend with Rousanne and Viognier has a complex and fine nose, dominated by fresh apricot, which persists at length in a round and very pleasant palate. Ideal sipping and will match with fruits de mer, pork dishes, Sushi and Oriental foods.
La Bastille Ugni Blanc Colombard 2015, South-West FranceThis gorgeous wine is clean, fresh and aromatic on the nose with some floral hints and exotic notes of pineapple and passion fruit. The sensual palate is has an attractive, lemony character with a refreshing zesty finish. Enjoy with seafood and white meats.
Marques Avenue Road Red 2015, La Mancha, Spain From La Mancha in central Spain comes this easy drinking red wine made from the Tempranillo grape. It has a deep, cherry red colour, with aromas of plums and red berries with some spice. In the mouth, the wine has a vibrant, velvety and sweet character, with red fruits and liquorice traces and soft tannins. It is a perfect match for tapas, as well as red meat dishes and roast lamb.
Reserve St Marc Merlot 2015, Languedoc-Roussillon, FranceDelicious Merlot oozing bags of primary fruit: mulberry, sweet cherry and plum, rounded off by savoury flavours of black olive, eucalyptus and white pepper. Try with red meats and grilled chicken.
Beaujolais-Villages 2014 Miss Vicky Wine Christophe Paris, Burgundy, France A consistently good wine with great depth of fruit and concentration from vineyards on sandy granitic soils. The gamay grapes are harvest by hand with a strict selection ensuring wines of concentration. The Beaujolais-Villages has very good colour - vivid crimson with blackberry and cherry fruit. Plenty of wine here to tackle a steak but best with fish such as pike and salmon with a sorrel sauce.
