The Mistress of Wine Recommends:
Irresistible Explorers Sauvignon Blanc 2017
This is a relatively subtle example of Marlborough Sauvignon for those who like a bit more restraint in their Kiwi wines. The aromas are classic with grass, passion fruit and gooseberry but the acidity is crisp and refreshing and the label stunning! Not too full on but more about elegance and pared down fruit.
Toro Loco Spanish Rosé NV
So with summer well and truly here I have been pretty much drinking only rosé as it is just so very, very refreshing in this heat. I’ve even been known to slip an ice cube in……During the hottest days my pink of preference has been the lightest, palest Provençal rosé but now that the weather is slightly more moderate I am ready for something with a little more fruit. Step forwards the gorgeous, vibrantly coloured Toro Loco Rosé from Aldi which has lifted, juicy cherry and raspberry fruit and is dry, refreshing and full of personality. Highly recommended.
