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

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

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

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.
