Torres, Vina Sol, 2013

Vina Sol, Torres 1706

This distinctive ever reliable table wine from Torres was purchased in Dunnes.

Apples and Pears best describe this with a touch of Fennel or Menthol.

A blend of Parellada and Garnacha Blanca grapes from the Penedès, perfect for the hot spell we’re enjoying. Not bad for a Garage blend.

Parellada and Garnacha Blanca grapes, grown in the Penedès region of Catalunya. – See more at: http://www.obrienswine.ie/wine/country-region/spain/torres-vina-sol.html#sthash.Nrc0lIHL.dpuf

Elegant, fresh, fruity aromas with fine spicy hints. Smooth, rich and crisp on the palate, with plenty of fruity flavours (apples and pineapples) and a touch of spice (fennel). – See more at: http://www.obrienswine.ie/wine/country-region/spain/torres-vina-sol.html#sthash.Nrc0lIHL.dpuf

2011 Charles Vienot GSM Blanc

This is a Superquinn exclusive by Boisset.

White Grenache, Sauvignon and Marsanne it has tons of ripe fruit but with a lovely acidic lift. Great!

Charles Vienot was a grower and negociant with very high quality and lovely wines and a history going back before the French Revolution. But like many in Burgundy, it fell on hard times in the 1980s and was sold (to Boisset). Now, the name has been revived. This wine was made by Pascal Marchand, formerly winemaker at Comte Armand, from grapes grown at Domaine Raymond Launay. The same wine was also sold under the Domaine Raymond Launay label.

A gift from the Farrells.
