Pick of the Bunch

Find our more about Master of Wine, Philippa Carr's monthly pick of the bunch.

March: Chenin Blanc Reserve

 

This month's Pick of the Bunch is our Chenin Blanc Reserve from South Africa, Breedekloof within Western Cape's Breede Valley which is surrounded by spectacular vineyard-sheltering mountains.

This is an incredibly smooth Chenin Blanc filled with peach and ripe pear flavours. This wine pairs perfectly with creamy pasta sauces, fried fish or chicken. It's also Fairtrade and the perfect tipple for Fairtrade Fortnight (22nd February - 7th March) 

February: Regional Selection Primitivo

 

Philippa's Pick of the Bunch this month is our silver-medal winning, gorgeous Regional Selection Primitivo, from Puglia, Italy. A fabulously fruity red, choc-filled with sunshine, it will warm any hearts this Valentine’s. 

Ripening in the warm southern sunshine of Puglia in Italy the Primitivo grape makes red wines bursting with spicy red-berried fruitiness. Partner with stuffed red peppers, chicken fajitas or barbecued chicken wings.
