Something For The Weekend?
Saturday 20 August 2005
Made in the Languedoc, this aromatic, southern French dry white is fresh and juicy with a ripe peachiness rounded out by subtle oak and topped off with refreshing pineappley acidity.
Under a Tenner: 2004 Leasingham Magnus Clare Valley Riesling, £7.49, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, www.virginwines.com
Kerri Hitchcock is known for the quality of her wines. This is a spritz-fresh dry aromatic white with a tangy twist of crisp, tropical lemon and lime fruitiness balanced by a yin and yang of zing and zest.
Splash Out: 2003 Cullen Mangan, around £17.95, Andrew Chapman (01235 550707), Valvona & Crolla (0131 556 6066), Villeneuve Wines, (0131 558 8441)
This Margaret River blend has equal parts of malbec and petit verdot, with a touch of merlot. Deep-hued with youthful berry and plum fruit. Lush and moreish.
