Every wine in our range has been carefully tasted and selected based on its quality and individual style. It is therefore almost a “mission impossible” situation to make a selection from over two hundred of these beauties that should not missed at the weekend wine fair in Dublin Castle.
So, with the emphasis on first time wineries at the event or the chance to taste something a little different, here is what I think it would be interesting to seek out.
Viña Chocálan from the Maipo have just launched a new range and their Vitrum Malbec is well worth seeking out for the chance to taste a Malbec from outside of Argentina.
Domaine de Jöy from Gascony are joining us for the first time in Dublin and their elegant, mineral Gasgogne white is a summer wine heaven sent if we can get some weather.
Gaia are showing their wonderful range of Greek wines and the Assyrtiko from vines grown on the volcanic Island of Santorini is a must try for something unusual.
The Wine People have a new wine on their table, a sparkling Grillo from Sicily which is dry with hints of exotic fruit and crisp acidity.
Rust en Vrede have their topCirrus Syrahon their table, think Northern Rhone power and intensity with a ripe full bodied fruit mid palate.
The chance to try wine from Uruguay is obviously limited but Familia Deicas have their Preludio Barrel Select at the fair and it is one of the top wines at the event.
