Antiguas Reserva Cabernet & Tiki Sauvignon Blanc are both recommended in the Irish Times today.
Tiki Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2011, Marlborough, €14.99
(only €13.99 at McCabes, 10% off when you buy 6 or more in store, Special case offers online!)
This won Noffla white wine of the year. I handed a glass of this to my in-house Marlborough Sauvignon expert, who said “it tastes just like Marlborough Sauvignon should”. So, fresh aromatic with decent clean, green fruits, and a squeeze of lime. This is a well-made wine to enjoy solo or with fish.
Cousino Macul Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reserva 2010, Valle del Maipo, Chile, €14.95
10% off when you buy 6 or more in store, Special case offers online!)
This was named Noffla red wine of the year. It is an attractive medium-bodied cabernet with slightly earthy but elegant blackcurrant fruits, hints of spice and a smooth dry finish. Try it with roast beef or lamb.
