Wine: SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND?
2003 Dr L Riesling, down from pounds 5.99 to pounds 4.79, Sainsbury's
Ernst Loosen's spring-fresh, florally aromatic Mosel riesling is followed by the vibrant juiciness of lime and apple encased in a delicate framework of just 9.5 per cent alcohol. Just what the doctor ordered: a wine as juicy and refreshing as a bite of fresh apple.
Under a tenner
2002 Buckingham Estate Reserve Shiraz, Western Australia, pounds 4.99, down from pounds 7.99, Sainsbury's
For its Festival Sainsbury's has almost halved the price of this western state shiraz. Your chance to enjoy an enticingly minty example with spicy, blackcurrant fruit and nubile tannins.
2002 Savigny-Les-Beaune, Bouchard Pere et Fils, pounds 12.99, Waitrose
What amuses about this naive domestic burgundy, as James Thurber might have said, is that a cherry and raspberry perfume is enhanced by the deftest touch of oak and a refreshing bite of acidity. Just the thing with roast white or dark meats.
