Emer McLysaght of Oh My God What A Complete Aisling fame has described the Irish salad plate as not just a salad but a state of mind. In fact, there is an outbreak of nostalgia at the moment for the ‘Irish Summer Salad’. Was it not just called ‘salad’ and by virtue of the fact you […]

The south of France enjoys a certain reputation. Tell anyone that’s where you’re headed, and they’ll probably picture you enjoying champagne on a superyacht flanked by the ultrarich and European aristocracy. But the south of France isn’t all about obscene luxury on the Riviera. Despite not having the same reputation as premier French regions like […]

We visited the Domaine De l’Hortus in the middle of July, about six or seven weeks ago. From the moment we arrived at the winery the impression I got was one of control and planning.   Even superficially, l’Hortus is different to most of the other vineyards and wineries we had visited. The winery is […]

“Available online or in their retail store at Arnotts, this is an unusually supple example of how the Malbec grape performs in its native Cahors. It’s dark, deep and plummy with no oak, just loads of fruit.” Tom Doorley, Irish Daily Mail

“Tannat can be a little lean at times but this blend avoids this nicely. Lovely plump, juicy, ripe wine with plums and blackcurrants and a good dry finish.” John Wilson, The Irish Times Wines of the Year.

“A blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc, the former carrying most of the aromas and flavours. Ripe apple and pear aromas with subtle tropical touches on the palate and a spanking fresh clean finish. Alarmingly drinkable and perfect for a warm salad or to give a lift to root veg-based dishes.” Leslie Williams, The Irish […]

“The reds from this region can be a little cool and herbaceous, but the best have a lovely purity of fruit. This is one such example, with a lifted nose of blackcurrants, and lovely, easy, soft plum fruits. Best with food.” John Wilson, The Irish Times

“An exercise in freshness and zing, this combination of Colombard and Sauvignon Blanc is all green gosseberries and blackcurrant leaf. In fact, it’s a wine that Paddy used to try to raise the standard of house wines in Irish restaurants. Cracking value and more grown-up than a lot of New Zealand Sauvignons.” Tom Doorley, Irish […]
