#TryJanuary: Best Wines of the Month
Phew, the longest month of the year is over! We decided that #TryJanuary was much more fun than #DryJanuary, so over the last month we’ve been selecting some of our newest, and favourite additions to the Vinohero collection that we think you’ll like too. From deep Argentinian Malbecs, to the classic French flavours of the Languedoc to the tropical, yet dry Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, there are plenty of different wines to choose from for every palate. Have a browse of our delicious list below:
- James Martin, Syrah (Corbières, France): This rich and complex Syrah is blended by iconic British chef James Martin himself! It’s the perfect balance of finesse, with sweet spices and hits of chocolate, complemented by aromas of coffee and red fruit notes. Best served with James’ recipe of Braised Meatballs with Mash Cider Sauce and Apple.
- Amayna, Pinot Noir (Leyda Valley, Chile): A bottle for that truly special occasion. This was the flagship wine from the prestigious Garces Silva Family winery which is now globally recognised as one of the first producers to plant in the Leyda Valley in Chile. Thanks to vineyards situated near to the Pacific Ocean, the combination of the coarse sea air and soil, coupled with a slow ripening of the grapes creates an aromatic and complex Pinot Noir.
- Bacio della Luna, Organic Prosecco (Treviso Hills, Italy): We couldn’t resist including a bottle of fizz, made in the beautiful Treviso area. Apart from the flavour, which is delicate with apple, peach and floral notes, the best thing about this prosecco is that it is certified organic. This means that no pesticides or chemicals were used to produce the grapes throughout the entire harvest to cellar process. It’s an amazing step for the future of wine making, and means that you can enjoy a glass of bubbly in the knowledge that the surrounding landscape is being well looked after. Cheers to that!
- Saint Auriol, Picpoul de Pinet (Languedoc, France): A crisp, chilled glass of French white wine is absolutely spot on for a relaxed Saturday night in. The fresh citrus and blossom flavours make this Picpoul particularly delicious with a Chinese or Thai. Take-away anyone?!
- Pa Road, Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough, New Zealand): Our favourite New Zealand Sauvignon is definitely soon to be yours too. Made in the prestigious Marlborough region by a Māori family winery, it’s distinctively dry, complemented by tropical and floral notes. What we’re saying is, it’s absolutely delicious, especially when you’ve got friends over!
