Another bring from Dad from his local wineshop – Nectar.
Lots of fruit from Tuscany, very soft finish – a nice way to welcome in Summertime.

Wolf’s hill demense?
This more than workmanlike product is from Beaujolais and a reliable dinner party stalwart.
Inky colour, full bodied for its origin.
Super wine from Laura’s stock
[Categories Chile, Shiraz, ]
The by-product of an excellent Marks & Spencer meal deal.
Firm, silky, fruity, a delight.

This was the house white offering with a Rewarding Times 59€ voucher.
Rewarding indeed, a super meal in pop-up surroundings.
Good food complemented by this semi-dry fruity number.
For the money, an outstanding value claret that sends some of the famed / named houses to Coventry.
Pantone 209 with good legs in the glass, warm nose, wonderful dry mouthfeel, silky firm tannins, lovely aftertaste. Always a pleasure to imbibe a Chaignes creation.

Produced in Cerignola near a very special part of the world – Gargano.
A concise list in the Linden Tree dining room at Carton House, this was chosen on the basis of perceived value in an otherwise expensive cluster. Big whack of vanilla, fruit and smooth alcohol delivery.
A fruity flavoursome, lots of lush redcurrants in a firmish body. Rich colour.
