What We’re Drinking: Wines for the Weekend

Are you looking for some wine-spiration this weekend? We’ve selected 3 wines, all available at ELY WINE STORE, Maynooth, which we recommend you enjoy this weekend.

 

Milu Ribera del Duero 2018

€16
100% Tempranillo, or Tinto del Pais as they call it here, this is a wonderful  Spanish red which focuses on freshness and drinkability. There’s a touch of oak to support the fruit, but it plays second fiddle to the juicy,  vibrant dark berry and damson flavours.

 

 

Domaine Zinck Sylvaner, Alsace 2017

€20
Sylvaner is the quiet grape of Alsace, all too often overshadowed by the big-shot varieties like Riesling & Gewurztraminer. But just between us, it is a little gem ! Crisp, clean and  refreshing, with subtle citrus and white fruit. A perfect aperitif, but equally good with seafood, shellfish & salads.

 

Treat yourself…

Miraval Rosé Cotes de Provence 2018

€30
Once best known as the “Brangelina” wine, because of their involvement in the winery, the real genius behind this outstanding rosé is the Perrin Family of Chateauneuf-du-Pape fame. Very pale pink, with raspberry & cherry fruit, perfect acidity and a fantastic, minerally finish.
