Wines on Tasting in West Road 23.04.16

%o April 2016

Two very different wines this week.

First up, a white from Western Australia that pays hommage to the whites of Bordeaux.  Sauvignon Blanc blended with a per centage of Semillon just to soften the over enthusiastic Sauvignon. A satisfying mix of gooseberry pizazz and citrus zing. 
Temptingly priced at £9.99 p/b and a steal at £7.99 when you buy a mixed 12!

The second offering is from the Cave de Foncalieu based in Carcassonne.  This Old Vine Carignan is brimming with red fruit and garrigue aromas.  Medium - bodied with a bit of grip on the finish yet fresh and elegant with red and black fruits.  The secret is in the concentration from the old gnarly vines. 

A touch of class for £10.99 p/b and a very reasonable £8.79 in a mixed 12.
