Looking for some wine and not sure what to buy? Let the UK’s wine experts give you a helping hand. Every week in the national newspapers and magazines, some of the UK’s best known wine buffs recommend wines for their readers. Below is a selection of wines from Tesco recommended over the weekend:
Matthew Jukes, The Daily Mail, Saturday 14th July 2012
The Olive Branch Cabernet Shiraz 2010
"With good depth of fruit and Asian spice on the nose, this is a stunning red which can be drunk a little chilled or at normal room temperature. If you cool it down you can increase the chilli heat in your cooking. Voila! A multi-talented red."
Susy Atkins, Stella (The Sunday Telegraph), Sunday 15th July 2012
Finest* Palestra Rueda 2011
"Lemon zest, pithy lime, and notes of fresh green grass and herb pervade this summery, dry Spanish white."
Jamie Goode, S Magazine (Sunday Express), Sunday 15th July 2012
Finest* Picpoul de Pinet 2011
"Made in the South of France, Picpoul de Pinet is a classic match for seafood. It's fresh, fruity and pure, with notes of apple and pear and subtle honeysuckle aromas."
David Williams, Observer Food Monthly, Sunday 15th July 2012
Bellingham Bernard Series Grenache Blanc Viognier 2011
"Sumptuous Cape white that really shows the value of swirling and sniffing: you could lose yourself in the gorgeous nose of honeysuckle and ripe tropical and peach fruit."
