Salasar Cremant De Limoux

Languedoc-Roussillon, France
WAS €21.95 NOW €18.95 (Part of our summer wine offers)

"A delicate, refreshing, pale straw sparkler, it has a nose of floral, brioche and honey notes. With a persistent flow of lively bubbles, the palate has pronounced hints of tropical and white stone fruit. Excellent length." - Matthew Nugent, The Irish Sun


Château Sainte-Marie Reserve Bordeaux Superieur

Bordeaux, France
WAS €19.95 NOW €14.95 (Part of our summer wine offers)

"A fruity Merlot-led Cabernet blend, chilling slightly foregrounds the savoury pencil-shaving aromas that frame the forest fruits and emphasises the crisp tannins on the palate, holding the fruit back for a final burst of juicy flavour on the finish. Perfect with a steak sandwich." - Aoife Carrigy, Irish Independent    


Alma Godello

Galicia, Spain
WAS €16.95 NOW €13.56 (Part of our Spanish wine sale)

"Godello is a high quality, aromatic grape that makes white wine not dissimilar to Albariño in style with ripe peach flavours, though with more acidity. If you are a fan of zesty vibrant white wines, then try this with ceviche." - Jean Smullen, Sunday World Magazine 


Lagar de Costa Albariño

Rías Baixas, Spain
WAS €21.95 NOW €17.56  (Part of our Spanish wine sale)

"This gorgeous wine, from the Costa family vineyards running down to the sea on the Galician coast, remains the benchmark by which I judge all Albariños, a grape variety Irish wine lovers can’t get enough of these days. It is deliciously refreshing and aromatic wine with a vein of saline minerality running right through it, adding nicely to the peach, apricot and citrus notes." - Matthew Nugent, The Irish Sun


Montelvini Collezione Promosso Frizzante    

Veneto, Italy
WAS €12.95 NOW €10 (Part of our summer wine offers)

"A lightly sparkling Chardonnay-Trebbiano blend, and great value for an impromptu park picnic to go with a falafel or salad box or whatever else you can rummage up. Clean orchard fruit character with refreshing citrus and apple acidity on the finish." - Aoife Carrigy, Irish Independent
