The Mistress of Wine Recommends:
Lot Series XI Australian Chardonnay 2017 Clare Valley/Margaret River, Australia
This is a sensational, elegant, Burgundy-esque Aussie Chardonnay that is a real pleasure to drink. We enjoyed it on Valentine's Day with some seafood and the stone fruit flavours and whisper of oatmeal and spicy oak made the wine taste a lot more expensive than its price tag. Yum.
Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro “Nivola” DOC NV
This wine really does offer something quite different....a sparkling red Lambrusco wine made from the Lambrusco Grasparossa grape. The result is an intensely coloured red with lashings of mulberry, bramble and blackberry fruit with really soft tannins and well-integrated sweetness. The fruit purity is impressive and this would be amazing with a BBQ or some charcuterie. Give it a go!
