The Mistress of Wine Recommends:
Domaine de Vaux St Georges 2017 Loire, France
Not only is this a really pretty bottle IMO but the contents within are very striking too! From the relatively new Chenonceaux AOC (only created in 2011) this is a very vibrant sauvignon blanc with lots of tight, crisp notes of elderflower, pear and pea. Very racy, refreshing and elegant with rapier sharp acidity this would be gorgeous with seafood, salads or delicate white fish.
The Big Gun Spanish Red
A perfect wine both for BBQs and mid-week drinking this is a richly coloured, juicy, fruity, youthful wine with lots of raspberry, bramble, baked fruit and spice notes. Soft, smooth and easy this is great value and is made of 85% Tempranillo & 15% Syrah.
