Delightful Chilean Chardonnay


We paired this delightful Chilean Chardonnay with a creamy chicken and mushroom dish – wonderful!  It was lovely as soon as opened but it developed so well over an hour or two. Not too chilled, it was creamy, buttery and a little earthy making it the ideal partner for our main dish!
Available at Beaconsfield Wine Cellars for around £13.50…..

Brazilian Bordeaux blend!


Had a mild panic last night when realised that the red wine storage plan had failed. Off to Waitrose and found this little treasure!

One of the few Brazilian wines that I’ve ever tried, and definitely one to try and try again….

Not only did it drink well as an aperitif – soft, fruity, low on tannins but full of flavour – but it also drank well alongside a lovely piece of fillet steak :-).

From Waitrose, £13.49.

Mud House!


A fascinating example of the classic Marlborough Sauvignon, we picked this up at Majestic for a steal. .!

To the nose, this was an obvious Marlborough Sauvignon. To the palate, it was slightly zingy, tangy, a little buttery and rather more robust than we’d come to expect from this region and grape.

All in all, lovely wine, excellent value and no doubt we’ll be doing a few more of these!
