Last week, we saw many of our wines featured in the national press or in online articles so we thought we would gather them all here incase you missed them. See below for a selection of headline hitting recommendations!
BODEGAS ARTUKE, ‘ARTUKE’, RIOJA, SPAIN, €16
“If you’re wondering what a modern young Rioja tastes like, organic Artuke makes a delicious starting point. Produced by a family winery set up in 1991, this juicy charmer has lipsmackingly pure summer fruit flavours with a mineral edge. As enjoyable by itself as it is with food” – Mary Dowey, The Gloss Magazine with the Irish Times
DOMAINE DE GRAMENON, CÔTES DU RHONE, FRANCE €28
“A delicious wine with layers of perfectly ripe fleshy red fruit, perked up by a fine acidity. Medium to full bodied, rounded and brimming with flavour. Serve with a really good burger or a lamb braise” – John Wilson, The Irish Times, October 2020
MARETTI, LANGHE ROSSO, ITALY €19
“Juicy and bright, this is a blend of two local grape varieties. Barbera gives the soft fruity mid-palate with black cherry aromas while nebbiolo lends the bite and structure. A crisp and refreshing red that can be drunk slightly chilled” – Mick O’Connell, Food and Wine Magazine, Sunday Business Post, October 2020
PRODUTTORI DEL BARBARESCO, LANGHE NEBBIOLO, €30
“This is arguably the world’s finest co-operative, producing top quality wines from some of the best sites around the village of Barbaresco. This is the perfect introduction to nebbiolo and one of my go-to wine; its perfumed and pretty, with delicate dried flower and bitter cherry aromas”
– Mick O’Connell, Food & Wine, Sunday Business Post, October 2020
HEINZ W ‘JOSEPH’, GRÜNER VELTLINER, AUSTRIA
“A perfect pairing of white wine and oysters – Acidity is key here and grapes such as sauvignon blanc have the crisp, fresh, clean acidity to cut through the unctuous creaminess of this type of shellfish, while complementing the subtle flavours of the oyster. For something different, try and Austrian Grüner Veltliner which is a lovely alternative to explore and Green Man Wines has a lovely example in Heinz W ‘Joseph’ Grüner Veltliner.
