If you are planning a romantic weekend to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we have six carefully selected wines just for you. And at a special price of just £75 – what’s not to love!
One of the best bottle fermented New World sparklers we have come across. Briliant Ozzie rosé – bold red fruit flavours, polished and really satisfying. Whilst this is very much a drink anytime and with anything style, it would also go nicely with light Asian dishes.
As James Halliday’s Wine Companion says “this wine is a heck of a lot of fun”! And with its elegant packaging it really is ‘flowers in a bottle’ and is filled with exotic and intriguing flavours. It goes really well with chicken with lemon and rosemary, crab, steamed mussels and sheep or goats cheese.
How can you resist a classical French style Burgundy, from the enduring favourite Chablis, which drinks like a Premier Cru! It goes superbly well with all types of white fish and shellfish as well as sushi.
Rare to find such a disarmingly delicious red from a genuinely exciting cool-climate region in Chile. Try serving it cool to show its best and match with a simple roast leg of lamb or oven roasted guinea fowl if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous!
There are few, if any, who are more highly regarded in Valpolicella than the Allegrini family, true artisans and champions of quality Valpolicella. If you’re planning an Italian dinner for two it does work well with a good pizza – or lasagne and it’s also excellent with a roasted loin of pork.
Finally, indulge in an after dinner treat and try our gently sweet and perfumed southern French Muscat. And it will go perfectly with that box of chocolates you are planning to buy!
Happy Valentines Day!
