Wine of The Week – Chianti and South African Chenin Blanc
November 11th, 2011
We have 2 new wines of the week. A fantastic new easy drinking style Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva down from €10.99 to €8.99. “Deep ruby red in colour with aromas of violets, wild cherries and subtle spice notes. On the palate the wine is full bodied and balanced with soft wild berry characters and a hint of vanilla and cinnamon, coupled with a long finish.”
The white comes from South Africa and is called Paarl Heights and is down to only €7.49 from €8.99. It is a fresh, dry white wine with a delicate lemon colour, displaying intense floral, guava and citrus aromas and succulent tropical fruit on the palate, balanced by crisp acidity.
