“Medium-bodied with flavours of peach skin and white peach flesh. White pepper spice on the finish is lifted with refreshing acidity. Enjoy with a herby vegetarian terrine sprinkled with petals of chive flowers.” Liam Campbell, Irish Independent

“The Touraine growers are flying the flag for undervalued Loire wines. Their fresh new labels match their clean, energetically crisp take on Sauvignon Blanc, such as this raucously gooseberry-driven ultra tart example. Well worth chilling in the fridge.” Tomas Clancy, The Sunday Business Post.

“This particular wine is big in restaurants these days and it makes a splendid aperitif and general food-friendly white. It’s dry and very zesty, crisp enough to tackle smoked salmon and with enough zing to cope with spiced olives. Fantastic value and an old favourite of mine.

“Rosso Piceno is from the Marche region of Italy, on the Adriatic coast just east of Tuscany and south of Emillia-Roomagna. This is a typical blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano and has a bright juicy fruit and a pleasing ripeness on the palate – perfect for mid-week pasta or pizza.” Leslie Williams, The Irish Examiner

“Bergerac, lying just outside the confines of Bordeaux, can offer some great value wines. The whites in particular are worth looking out for. Based on the Sauvignon grape, as used in Sancerre and Pouilly Fume, the best are fresh, aromatic and crisp. The Chateau des Eyssards is a perfect example, with floral grassy aromas, light […]
