Radio WM – Couple of Co-op bargains

the-nedThe Ned Sauvignon Blanc 2016 13%

Co-op £6.99 reduced from £9.39 – 25% off.

My favourite under a tenner New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Zesty lime, with gooseberry flavours polished off with a smoky finish. Particularly great value from the Co-op at the moment, because it’s worth every penny at the full price too.

Food match: Delicious with the usual – fish (trout, monk fish) and salads but also goat’s cheese and Thai food.









baron-de-ley-reserva-1186630_pBaron de Ley Reserva 2011 13.5%

Co-op £9.99

Tempranillo based Rioja which has been aged for 20 months in American oak, and then a further 24 months in bottle.  You might sniff aromas of coconut and toffee along with cherry and a slightly herby note. When you taste it, it’s very red-fruit in character, smooth and soft.

Food Match: I’m loving this with lamb and red-currant jelly.
