Wine: Something for the weekend?
Saturday 21 May 2011
2009 Cono Sur Viognier Colchagua Valley, Chile
Fragrant and floral with the Northern Rhône grape's scents of stonefruit, this is a rich, exotic viognier whose honeyed middle is tempered by crisp, citrus-fruity acidity.
£5.99, down from £7.49, Waitrose, until 24 May
2008 Etnico, Cachapoal, Central Valley, Chile
A herbal, ripe, cherryish Bordeaux-style blend, whose opulent plum-fruit flavours, spicy oak, fine textured tannins and balancing freshness place it halfway between Europe and Italy.
£8.99, or £8.09 if you buy 12, Marks & Spencer
2009 Black Estate Chardonnay, Waipara, New Zealand
You could be forgiven for imagining yourself in Burgundy tasting this elegant, complex, Kiwi chardonnay with a nutty, dry aftertaste.
£18.95, bottle/case, Lea & Sandeman shops (020-7244 0522)
