09/07/2018 – Tabula Rasa #V17R and Certo Garganega

(2018) Like its Merlot partner, a handy 50cl bottle priced at £3.99. Garganega is the grape of Soave, and this comes from the Veneto region too. Pleasingly clean and fresh with a ripe pear succulence and decent acidity, it's a nicely balanced white with a bit of texture and a more or less dry, food-friendly finish. Watch the video for more information. Price for 50cl.
(2018) From the Thistledown Wines team, a Grenache (well, with around 10% Mourvèdre) that marches to a different beat from it beer-bottle style 50cl container to its crown cap. Inside is a heart-warming an gluggable red, perfumed with violet, raspberry and blackcurrant, and filling the mouth with sweet and easy-going fruit. The perfect barbecue companion.  Watch the video for more information.
