Wine: Something for the weekend?
Saturday 07 January 2012
2011 Waitrose Sauvignon Blanc, Viña Valdivieso, Aconcagua Valley, Chile
Backed by a crisp new vintage aroma, this refreshing Chilean halfway house between New Zealand and sancerre is passionfruity and etched with a zesty, grapefruity quality. £5.75, down from £7.69, Waitrose
2010 Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Old Vine Grenache
This is a big, spicy McLaren Vale grenache whose raspberry and cherry opulence is rounded out by a touch of subtle oak, retaining the texture to wash down wintry game pie. £9.99, Sainsbury's
2009 Earth's End Pinot Noir, Central Otago, New Zealand
A Mount Edward production, showing raspberry aromas with an undertow of fruitiness, oak and silky tannins, yet without the overwhelming power of many a Kiwi pinot noir. £15.99, Marks & Spencer
