Wine of The Week - Again!

Posted on November 01, 2012 by John McCabe

 Delighted to see that another of our wines was reviewed and praised by John Wilson in The Irish Times 27/10/12

Chateau des Karantes 2010, La Clape Lanquedoc €19.99
John said 'Karantes is from La Clape, a rocky outcrop by the Mediterranean coast, which has been recognized as one of the finest places to grow vines. Although founded recently, Karantes has won a string of prestigious trophies and awards. This blend of Syrah and Mourvèdre, with a little Grenache, is rich, voluptuous and rounded with silky dark fruits, some tobacco and spice, and good smooth length.

Only a couple of weeks earlier, he'd picked
Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2010, Vigneto Vigne Nuove, Valle Reale €11.99
A nicely aromatic wine with lovely refreshing, bright, brambly, dark cherry fruits, and an attractive tannic nip on the finish
