Wines for summer #002

Here goes 2 more additions to our list of wines for the summer 2013.

Provenquiere

Domaine de la Provenquiére Syrah VdP d’Oc, Languedoc, France 2010

The beautiful little estate is situated right in the heart of the Languedoc, and produces wines from traditional grapes but in a modern, clean style. The Syrah is everything you could want from this grape and this region – packed with dark berry fruit on the nose, but bursting with savoury flavours on the palate- smoky, peppery and black olive. The natural acidity in the Syrah ensures a freshness on the finish.
Available by the glass €7.00 at all 3 ely restaurants. Bottle €28.00

Felines Jourdan

Domaine Felines Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet, Languedoc, France 2012

Picpoul is almost certainly going to be this summer’s ‘must drink’ white wine, and with good reason. Described by some (me) as this generations Muscadet, but in the best possible sense – Crisp, bone-dry, and lemon scented, there are also grapefruit and green apple touches on the palate. Perfect with almost all seafood and shellfish dishes, but goes down a treat as an aperitif too.

Available at all 3 ely restaurants only by the bottle @ €31.00
