Wine of The Week – Bordeaux Red & Spanish White

August 26th, 2011

We have 2 new wines of the week and they are brand new to the Red Nose Wine stable of wines. We have a new Bordeaux that is a great introduction to this most famous of regions. It is called 58 Guineas Everday Claret. On the nose, fresh and forward, lively red fruit backed by good depth – true claret typicity, youthful but unmistakable. On the palate, round medium-bodied, perfectly balanced flavours of youthful red fruit with claret backbone, easily enjoyable on its own or with food. It is down from €9.99 to €7.99

The white is a cheap and cheerful Spanish white called Mont Marcal Blanco. It is a great value Spanish white from Penedès. Crisp & fruity, this is a real class act with or without food. Pale yellow with green hues, the bouquet is intensely fruity, with notes of ripe apples, white flowers and a tropical fruit. On the palate it is equally fruity, well structured, soft, fresh and round.

This is a wine is ideal as an aperitif or to accompany light dishes of fish and shellfish, pasta and rice dishes, white meats, salmon and even cured cheeses. It is down to €6.99

Wines of the week

We have 2 new wines of the week and they include a real star wine from the Irish Vineyard in France. I am of course talking about the much loved Domaine des Anges in Provence. The new vintages have arrived into Red Nose Wine and we are giving the 2010 White a push by slashing the price back to €10.49. This organic wine has a nose of pears and lemons with a touch of tropical fruits. A full, rich, creamy, well-balanced palate with notes of pears and pineapples leading to a long finish, both lively and elegant.

To match it we have the very popular La Granja Tempranillo Garnacha, aka The Zebra. This is an everyday drinking soft rounded juicy red wine, with rich ripe raspberry flavours. It is a great match for barbeque roasted pork chops, spare ribs, sausages, grilled vegetables and cheeses and only costs €6.99.
