What The Press Say – Take Two

What The Press Say – Take Two

span style="line-height: 1.6em;">As a continuing source of inspiration for your Christmas wine shopping, here is a further selection of recommendations from our lovely Irish journalists.

Rabl Gruner Veltliner Loss 2014 Maureen O’Hara - Irish Daily

“A crowd-pleasing style, medium-bodied with subtle mineral/flinty flavours, white pepper and fresh herbs. Super-long finish.”

Cusumano Shamaris 2014 Jean Smullen - Sunday World

“This is an amazing white from Sicily…..an aromatic fruity wine, perfect as an accompaniment to any soft cheese”

Bethany Riesling 2012 Tom Doorley - Irish Mail on Sunday

“I’ve thrown in this old favourite from Oz…. I’ll never forget the combination of the lime-like acidity, the whiff of four-star unleaded and clean tart finish….. the 2012 has enough bottle age to see some evolution and the petrol character is certainly there.”

Alta Mora Etna Bianco 2014 Kevin Ecock - WinePlus.ie

“This is for everyone who likes unusual and brilliant at the same time!..... a rich and full-bodied white wine with a distinct peppered finish where an excellent lean acidity helps this match up with a fabulous range of foods”

Rizzardi Munus Bardolino 2012 Leslie William Irish Examiner

“Bardolino is next door to Valpolicella and as you might expect the main grape is (old-vine) Corvina along with some Merlot and Rondinella. Rizzardi are a reliable producer and this is ripe, rich and mouth-filling with soft red fruits and lingering black cherry flavours. Try with an Italian style minced beef and pork ragu.”

Les Abeilles de Colombo 2013 Liam Campbell Irish Independent

“Perfumed violets and ripe berries. Delicious, silky texture and a little mineral note. Lovely ripe tannins give a refined finish.”

Urlar Pinot Noir 2011 Mary Dowey – The Gloss Magazine

“It would be a smart bottle to bring to a dinner party or to produce when you want to indulge guests yourself. A winner with chicken, duck goose and ham, it’s just the thing to lay in for Christmas
