San Giorgio, Pinot Grigio, Rose, Veneto, 2015

John, Dad and I sampled this house Rose during our visits to The Wild Boar to watch the three SA tests.

A bit pricey for a table / house wine. Though pleasant enough to wash down the meat platters, unlike the result of the last two tests.

Sancerre, Domaine Andre Vatan, ‘Maulin Bele’ Rose 2014

Lovely zing off this rose, crisp, clean 100% Pinot Noir, lovely with the Cheese Platter in Whelehans.

Jancis Robinson wasn’t too keen on this – preferring their standard Sancerre – but I am. Not cheap but quality shines. John brought this to dinner.

A suggestion from Provence that Saignee produced Roses aren’t the real deal.

Monastier Grenache Rose 2013

Monastier Grenache Rose 110714

The Burns family came to Saturday Brunch; Robbie, Nathalie, new bonny baby Becky and young James together with Nathalie’s Mum, Jannie.

This was the wine offering that hit the spot for the afternoon. Pleasant easy drinking: Whiff of Raspberry, fresh mouthfeel with decent fruits

This came from the Dunnes Summer Offer Shelf @ €8.50.

Great to see all the family on Nathalie’s annual visit and Lesley loved having the infant in the house.
