This month’s First Class Wine Adventure Case:
Vina Real Crianza Rioja CVNE 2016 – £12.00 (on offer £10.50)
Crianza Rioja has had only a few months oak ageing, so has more fresh fruit flavours than older Riojas. This great little wine has an attractive garnet colour with a high aromatic intensity of forest fruits like blackberries and wild cranberries intermingled with the black liquorice, vanilla and nutmeg coming from the time in barrels.
Poderi Colla – Dolcetto d’Alba ‘Pian Balbo’ 2018 – £13.50 (on offer £11.50)
Poderi Colla have a long history of high quality Dolcetto production. A lovely nose of plum, cherry, violet, sweet spice and dried herbs. The palate has lots of fresh fruit flavours, including sour cherry and plum with refreshing acidity. The mouthfeel is crunchy and vibrant with a firm, dry and savoury finish. Great served with food, perhaps lightly chilled.
Herdade Sao Miguel ‘Ciconia’ Tinto 2019 – £10.00
Made from the Portuguese grapes Aragones & Touriga Nacional with some Syrah, this is a great little wine from off the beaten track in the Alentejo (in the South, above the Algarve.) The name Ciconia refers to a stork which is native to the Alentejo area of Portugal. It has a dark inky colour and on the nose, plenty of rustic charm with dark fruits and vanilla oak. Nice fruit and soft tannins in the mouth.
Domaine du Mont d’Hortes – Cuvee des 4 Saisons Rose 2019
Domaine de Mont d’Hortes is a delightful 30 hectare property located 60km South West of Montpellier. 4 Saisons Rose is made from 100% Grenache Noir, is very pale in colour and is very delicious! Fantastic value for a pale, fresh and dry rose in the Provence style.
Wairau River Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019 – £14.75 (offer £11.75)
Wairau is Maori for `many waters’. Classic expression of the dry, gooseberry, grass and passion fruit style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Clean and crisp it is bursting with a flinty minerality with flavours of grapefruit, gooseberry, herbs and white stone fruit. Expressive on the palate, finishing with great length. A good accompaniment to fish, shellfish, grilled vegetables and asparagus.
Vina Albina ‘Penamonte’ Verdejo Blanco, Toro 2018 – £11.00
100% Verdejo (a white variety typically grown in Toro). Coming from vineyards between 20 and 45 years old, these older vines are planted with low density and give small yields, producing wines with good concentration and a strong character. Pale yellow with a greenish rim; clean and bright. Intense aromas, with a hint of tropical fruit and notes of pineapples and passion fruit against a citrus background. Very flavoursome, exotic and fruity in the mouth.
