Wines of the week: Juicy reds that have enough depth to warm a cooler evening
Sunday 06 April 2014
In sunshine-and-showers April, seek out juicy, medium-bodied reds that still have enough depth to warm a cooler evening…
Henry Fessy Morgon 2011
With its "men with moustaches" image, Fessy might seem a jokey newcomer to the Beaujolais Cru villages. But it has been around a while and makes serious wines, using traditional methods and old vines. This is smooth, silky, but also intensely fruity. Drink with roast poultry or mushroom-based dishes. £10.50, oddbins.com
Tempus Carménère 2012
The smooth, soft, pepper-and-chocolate tinged flavours of this delicious Carménère from Chile makes it just right for chillier spring evenings without being too heavy on the palate. Try with pork and chorizo casserole or a baked-pasta dish. £7.50, experiencewine.co.uk; £8.30, jascots.co.uk
Mas de Victor Graciano Rioja 2012
Not all Rioja is made from Tempranillo. The Graciano grape is a fine and underappreciated alternative, its lighter flavours of sweet smoke, coffee and plums making it thoroughly beguiling and moreish. As recommended before here and currently at a very good price. £5.99 (until 29 April; normally £8.99), Sainsbury's
