Fairtrade Wines

10th March 2016

Tilimuqui Fairtrade Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon/Bonarda £7.99/75cl (selected stores)
This wine has its own subtle smokiness, lovely ripe fruit, and just the right texture to coat your mouth with gentle tannins. It’s quite bold, but not overpowering, which is just what this delicious salad needs with its crisp greens, zesty tomatoes and beautifully rich smoked duck.

Drink it with... Smoked duck salad
Bold flavours and textures are the perfect match for the Argentinian red.

1. Waitrose Fairtrade Merlot 20% OFF £4.99/75cl (was £6.39, offer ends 15 March)
I love teaming meats with Merlot. There’s a meatiness to Merlot itself, and this one has a plummy overtone that complements the duck beautifully, and a pepperiness that goes really well with the walnuts.

2. Tilimuqui Fairtrade Malbec Rosé £6.79/75cl (selected stores)
Another wine from the first-rate Tilimuqui co-operative in Argentina, this is a lovely example of modern, elegant New World rosé, with wonderful cherry fruit flavours.

3. Waitrose Fairtrade Chenin Blanc 20% OFF £4.99/75cl (was £6.39, offer ends 15 March)
From an up-and-coming area on South Africa’s west coast, this is great value, with a crisp acidity and rich, layered, honeyed flavours.

4. Tilimuqui Organic Fairtrade Torrontes 20% OFF £6.39/75cl (was £7.99, offer ends 15 March)
Torrontes is Argentina’s most distinctive grape, shown off exceptionally well in this crisp, fruity, white, with gently spicy citrus flavours.
