Special reds for Easter

24th March 2016

Baron de Ley Rioja Reserva 25% OFF £9.36/75cl (was £12.49)
Lamb and Rioja is a traditional match and sometimes there’s no point reinventing the wheel. There’s a huge amount of fruit in this one, with that lovely vanilla smell, and what really makes the partnership work is the way the richness of the wine is held in check by the spiciness of the chillies.

Drink it with... Lamb cutlets with polenta & herb dressing
The rich Rioja is a robust partner to this flavour-packed dish.

1. Escarpment The Edge Pinot Noir 25% OFF £10.49/75cl (was £13.99)
I’ve been a fan of this wine for a long time. It’s Pinot, but not as you know it – the usual elegance is there, but with an almost gamey nature.

2. Terre del Barolo DOCG SAVE 1/3 £12.49/75cl (was £18.79)
A big, powerful wine with notes of coffee, tobacco and mint – a great match for roast lamb, served pink.

3. Catena Malbec 25% OFF £9.74/75cl (was £12.99)
A soft, plum and blackcurrant flavoured red, with a long, satisfying finish and smooth tannins, made from Malbec grapes.

4. Cave Saint-Desirat Saint-Joseph 25% OFF £10.49/75cl (was £13.99)
A classic red made from Syrah grapes, with warm raspberry and blackberry flavours, streaked with a hint of liquorice.
