Wine of the Week Cepas Privadas Sauv Blanc

Canto Nova Pinot Grigio

Was: €16.99           Now: €7.99

Grape Variety: Pinot Grigio
Country: Italy

This is a great example of why the Italians do a great Pinot Grigio, and it's half price so you just have to get it.  A light to medium bodied dry Pinot, it's crisp acidity balancing perfectly with soft fruit on the palate. A perfect aperitif.
Wine of the Week Castellani Arbos

McGuigan Black Label Reserve Shiraz

Was: €14.99           Now: €10.00

Grape Variety: Shiraz
Country: Australia

This is the reserve selection from the black label range and you can tell straight away it's a little bit special. A nice discount of €5 makes this well worth it. This wine has wonderful complexity, with vibrant red berry aromas, accented by a hint of toasty oak. Gentle ageing complements the fruit flavours adding subtle spice and great length.
Wine of the Week Luis Felipe Sauv Blanc

Yellow Tail Chardonnay

Was: €11.99           Now: €9.50

Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Country: Australia

A really popular wine from down under and the Chardonnay is a great place to start if you haven't tried any of the range yet. This one has melons, white peach and hint of nutty complexity drive a soft textured palate but in the end it's just a wonderful drink. Excellent with roast chicken.
Wine of the Week Barefoot Merlot

Luis Felipe Edwards Cabernet Sauvignon

Was: €11.99           Now: €8.00

Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Country: Chile

A real bargain at just €8, this is such a great wine I would have no problem paying full price. I would gladly drink this on it's own but it will go well with a lot dishes and a good compliment to the Sunday roast. The wine has good colour, with red berry fruits and some smoky notes. Followed by a great lingering finish. 

Jacobs Creek Pinot Grigio

Was: €12.99           Now: €10.00

Grape Variety: Pinot Grigio
Country: Australia

A very famous label and another great wine from Australia, this is a great Pinot Grigio. It also arrives in at my perfect price point of €10. This wine has appealing aromas of honeysuckle and quince with a subtle citrus background. Light to medium bodied on the palate, it shows flavours of pear and red apple. Just delicious!
Wine of the Week Brancott Sauv Blanc

Turner Road Reserve Merlot

Was: €17.00           Now: €8.50

Grape Variety: Merlot
Country: USA

This is a fantastic offer from Tesco, a real quality wine for only €8.50, you have to try this over the long weekend. This Merlot has vibrant, jammy aromas of plums and red cherries and a soft, lingering finish. Ripe fruit flavours compleminted by just a hint of sweet, toasty oak make it the perfect match for grilled steak and barbecued chicken. 
Wine of the Week Campo Viejo Tempranillo

Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Was: €14.99           Now: €10.99

Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Country: New Zealand

An easy choice for me, when I see this on special offer, i just have to get it. Bold, ripe aromas of fresh cut grass and passion fruit. A dry, fresh, fruit driven wine with intense flavours. This wine can easily be drunk on it's own, with a light meal or some seafood. Always great to have in the cellar.
