Three wor­thy bot­tles every week – for three dif­fer­ent bud­gets

Irish Daily Mail - - Food and Wine -

EX­QUIS­ITE COL­LEC­TION LIME­STONE COAST CHARDON­NAY €8.49, ALDI Aus­tralian Chardon­nay. Unoaked, it de­liv­ers clean, pure, fresh fruit – think peach and tangy pineap­ple. Aged on its yeast lees, it’s creamy, but­tery, with a crisp fin­ish.

CHATEAU LA BARONNERIE €12, SU­PERVALU A lush red from Bordeaux’s less well known Cotes de Blaye and old, lowyield­ing Mer­lot vines with a lit­tle Caber­net. Com­plex, soft and very ap­proach­able, it makes a lovely claret for steak. Se­duc­tive.

TIM ADAMS THE FER­GUS €15.99, TESCO Com­plex red from Aus­tralia’s Clare Val­ley. Un­usu­ally, it’s made from Gre­nache, Tem­pranillo and Mal­bec and aged in French and Amer­i­can oak for two years. Suc­cu­lent, spicy and prop­erly long.
