Wine: Something For The Weekend
Saturday 18 February 2012
2009 Codorníu Vintage Rosado Cava
There's a refreshing strawberryish pizzazz to this Spanish fizz made from native Catalonian grapes and a dash of pinot noir, whose dry finish makes it a fun weekend party fizz. Currently down from £13.99 to £6.99, Tesco
2007 Barbaresco Umberto Fiore
Floral, cherry and plum fruit aromatics, attractively juicy sweet and sour cherryish nebbiolo with the typical grip and lean fresh acidity of the variety. Not so typical is its relatively moderate price. £11.99, Marks & Spencer
2010 David Reynaud Crozes Hermitage
Stylish Northern Rhône syrah showing classic aromas of violets and pepper, succulently textured blackberry infused with allspice. £18.99, Noel Young Wines (01223 844744), Carruthers & Kent (0191 213 1818)
