Cono Sur Bicicleta Sauvignon Blanc

Was: €11.00           Now: €9.00


Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Country: Chile

Fantastic Sauvignon all the way from Chile, it's a popular label and once you taste it you will see why. Elegant, expressive this wine really impresses with its citrus notes of grapefruit and green apple which mingle in with herbal hints. Try this wine with smoked salmon or roast chicken. Delicious!  
Wine of the Week Barefoot Merlot

Monastier Cabernet Sauvignon

Was: €12.99           Now: €10.00

Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Country: France

A full-bodied complex and rich wine. This is exclusive to Dunnes so I would really recommend you get down to your local store and pick up a bottle. This has rich generous fruits with a complex finish. This will go well with any roast dinner.

Ogio Pinot Grigio

Was: €10.00           Now: €8.00

Grape Variety: Pinot Grigio
Country: Italy

A classic Pinot from Italy, this one is well worth trying and at €8 you can't go wrong. Aromas of melon and citrus fruit. On the palate you get hints of orange blossom, it really does taste as good as it sounds. Ideal with grilled fish, spicy food, chicken and salads. You would be hard pushed to get a better wine at this price point.
Wine of the Week Brancott Sauv Blanc

Faustino VII

Was: €15.00           Now: €10.00

Grape Variety: Tempranillo
Country: Spain

Spain always does Tempranillo really well, and this has to be one of the wines that does it better than most. It's got all the fruity flavours you would expect from this type of wine and you can really taste the dark fruits. Now that we are heading into Summer, this wine is excellent with BBQ's.
Wine of the Week Campo Viejo Tempranillo

Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc x 2

Was: €29.98           Now: €20.00

Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Country: New Zealand

Molloys love their 'double deals' and when this wine is on offer, so do I. Once you taste this wine you will know why everyone loves a Sauvignon from New Zealand. This is such a flavoursome wine which is dominated by gooseberry, passionfruit, fresh citrus and melon. Try this with fresh flavours of seafood, shellfish and with some citrusy sauce.

Santa Rita 120 Merlot x 2

Was: €25.98           Now: €17.99

Grape: Merlot
Country: Chile

Everyone knows this label and the Merlot is a particular favourite of mine.   
Wine of the Week Cepas Privadas Sauv Blanc

Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Was: €15.00           Now: €11.00

Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Country: New Zealand

Another New Zealand Sauvignon makes it onto the list this week but when they are that good we simply can't leave them out. Bold, ripe aromas of fresh cut grass and passion fruit. A dry fruit driven wine with intense flavours, this wine can be enjoyed on its own. If you do want to match it with some food than go for the classic seafood, white fish would be my choice. 
Wine of the Week Castellani Arbos
supervalulogo

Street Talk Cabernet Sauvignon

Was: €17.99           Now: €8.99

Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Country: Australia

This is a wine I only discovered recently and I am so glad I did, it's a real winner.  You can pick it up today for half price so you won't get a better time to try it. Full of strong fruit flavours that really stand out. Lots of berry on the palate and with most Cabernet goes really well with a steak or BBQ.
