Wine: Something For The Weekend?
2004 Peter Lehmann Barossa Valley Riesling; 004 The Storm Sangiovese Merlot; 2004 Crozes Hermitage, Alain Graillot
Saturday 28 January 2006
This screwcapped aromatic dry white is one of the best value rieslings around, combining the typical lemon and lime aromas of the grape variety with a crisp, zesty fruit richness and the distinctive "petrolly" character of good Riesling.
Under a Tenner: 2004 The Storm Sangiovese Merlot £8.99 /£5.99 each for 3, Wine Rack, £7.99, Somerfield
A fascinating Cape blend of the chianti grape - with its sour cherry aromas and savoury sweetness - and merlot, which enriches and softens the texture to make a juicy, medium-bodied pasta basher of the first order.
Splash Out: 2004 Crozes Hermitage, Alain Graillot £13.50, Yapp Bros (01747 860 423/www.yapp.co.uk)
Graillot sets the benchmark both for Crozes and reasonable pricing; after the torrid 2003 vintage, this beauty has the iodiney aromas of northern Rhône with a sumptuous palate laden with tarry fruit.
