What We’re Drinking: May

Join in on the conversation! This month we are drinking Cava, Treixadura and Pinot Noir at ELY WINE STORE, Maynooth. All these wines are available at our wine store in Maynooth. Can you pick up any of the tasting notes we have outlined below?


What We’re Drinking at ELY WINE STORE, Maynooth

Alta Alella Mirgin Cava Brut Reserva, Cataluña, Spain 2016   €26

Kick start the weekend with this outstanding bottle of bubbles. When it comes to quality / value, nothing beats Cava. Lemon-fresh and bone dry on the palate, with peach fruit, fine bubbles and great length. Works equally well with food or without. A perfect pick-me-up!

The Flower & the Bee, Ribeiro 2017 €19

A knockout summer wine from the little-known Treixadura grape in Galacia, north west Spain. Full of peach, pair and apricot fruit, but with a wonderful freshness on the palate.

Try it with simple grilled fish & lemon, or a seafood salad.

Geil Pinot Noir Rheinhessen, Germany 2016  €19

Summertime is Pinot time, and believe it or not, Germany produces some of the most wonderful pinto out there. Light and silky, with sweet strawberry and cherry fruit. Pop it I the fridge for 20 mins before you drink it for a perfect summer red.

Light enough to pair with seafood and salads, but delicious with a simple roast chicken.
