The by-product of an excellent Marks & Spencer meal deal.
Firm, silky, fruity, a delight.
A fruity flavoursome, lots of lush redcurrants in a firmish body. Rich colour.

Red table wine from Spain a Grenache / Syrah blend.
Red Santa Cruz de Alpera
Appellation of Origin Almansa (http://denominacion-origen-almansa.com/)
A very potable easy drinking full bodied red from down under. Blueberry notes with an Aniseed finish.
One of the last wines to bear Brian McGuigan’s signature before he retired.
Another bauble from the wineonline.ie bin end case.
The Ink dark colour would suggest a mouthbuster hit but delivery is quite reserved. A light, slighty gritty, fruity cloying taste. Not unpleasant and perhaps more Merlot than Syrah in the blend. Good party wine.
