0000719 Don Cayetano Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Chile
Don Cayetano has long been a top customer favourite among our Sauvignons. For a good reason! It’s fruity, fresh and excellent value. This is a crisp, minerally, lime fresh white from the Luis Felipe Edwards estate From four-time Chilean Winery of the Year, this white will ravish you with cut grass, gooseberry and tropical fruit. Will suit a creamy style of cheese.
C2C Price £7.19 Inc VAT
1948219 Lobo e Falcão 2019, Portugal
Wine Spectator calls Portugal “the most exciting wine place on the planet”, with its terrific range of native grape varieties and wines that always offer standout value.
Fans of smooth, mouthfilling wines take note – this is a sure contender for the Big Red crown. A delicious blend of Portuguese grapes from a former royal falconry, Lobo e Falcão has lovely warmth, satisfying richness and dark, spicy fruit. Would suit a stilton or blue style of cheese.
C2C Price £8.79 In VAT
Thanks to Steven Wilmer, GM The Ivy Montpellier who was our guest cheese expert. Steven close a couple of his favourite cheeses to go with the wines and also gave the great news that all The Ivy’s will open on the 4th July. They are only taking phone bookings no just calling in and they will have temperature monitors on the doors so any one with a temperature (and their party) will not be allowed in.
Good luck Steven & Mimmo for the opening, it will be lovely to go back to both our lovely local Ivy’s in Cheltenham and Bristol.
