Wine and Spirit Recommendations
At Wine Wise, we understand that choosing a wine or spirit is not an exact science. So many factors come into it - how well you are feeling, where you are, who you are with, even the mood you are in can make a difference.
Listed below are some of the wines and spirits we have been enjoying. Please note that these recommendations are independent and under no influence/incentive from suppliers.
We are still hoping for some sunshine in the UK so here are some wines to invoke that Spring feeling...
Style: A light, refreshing wine with flavours that are both subtle yet long lasting. Layers of citrus fruit with a steely 'minerality' which is typical of a wine from the Chablis regions. The mineral flavours come from the vines' uptake of trace elements from the local chalky soils. The cool climate of Chablis' Northern France location ensures that the grapes are high in acidity and therefore offer a crisp refreshing profile.
Available from Wine Direct (www.winedirect.co.uk)- £15.25
Tapa Roja Old Vines Monastrell
Marks and Spencer
Style: A spicy but unoaked red wines. Lots of juicy blackberry flavours with a kick of spice to bring the wine to life. Monastrell is a grape that loves the heat and develops some deep fruity flavours and lots of colour from it's thick skins. Fantastic with pizza and pasta, lamb chops or chilli.
Available in Marks and Spencer: £9.00
