White. Vidal Estate Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand, £15.99
Vidal Estates is a winery on top form at the moment and has been scooping awards left right and centre and when you taste this wine you can see why. It’s deliciously old school with a pronounced tropical fruit nose which leads on to a palate just bursting with ripe tropical fruit and zesty acidity. Old school, new world.
White. Domaine de la Motte Chablis, France £16.99
I think that if you were to look up Chablis in the dictionary then there would just be a picture of this particular wine and that is because it is just quite simply perfect. There is the classic lift of fresh apples and grapes and then a deliciously stylish mineral undertone which is all wrapped up by utterly, perfectly poised acidity. Life affirming stuff!
Red: Altano Organic Douro Red, Portugal £11.99
With these cold days and long nights it is always nice to have a wine which gives you a little hug and this is definitely one such wine. All deep, rich, rounded red fruits which are so heartwarming but there is that unmistakable little rasp of acidity at the finish which gives this wine such balance.
Red: Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Pinot Noir, Chile £16.99
Chilean Pinot Noir done beautifully well. The vineyards for this wine are in the cooler climate region of Aconcagua in the north of Chile’s growing regions and that cooler temperature ensures wonderful finesse and lightness of touch. At its best of given a chance to breathe and really, really at its best if served with food, ideally rack of lamb.
