    Wine of the Week 17 – a delicious & great value Cabernet

    My Wine of the Week is a favourite value wine of mine. It is a Cabernet Sauvignon from Greece, which is not exactly a place that is famous for Cabernet, but this wine really is delicious and worth trying. I love Greek wines and think they are sadly neglected and underrated by the UK consumer.

      Salads with wine pairings? Seriously?

      Wine Blog - - 7 readers - You might ask, salads with wine pairings? Seriously? Yes, I’m here to tell you that it not only works, but it works really well. When I was working at a winery in the Sierras, we had a chef that worked there every day. It was he who turned me on to the fact that we can enjoy a wine with a leafy salad. I have to admit that I wouldn’t have believed it, if I hadn’t tried it. It works.

      Sabrego Valdeorras Godello, 2010

      …This bottle took a little longer to open up than I expected, but that's a good sign. It's not just getting older; it's also getting better. From northern Spain, a white wine varietal that was neglected for far too long but is now getting some notice. Medium deep yellow. Not as fragrant as I remember. Minerals, flowers, white peaches. Reticent at first, then gets fuller and fuller. Full range of creamy flavors and a long finish. Godello is good; wish there were more on the market.…

      …2012 Marchese Guadagni Orvieto Classico Superiore Orvieto is a beautiful place in Italy and they make fresh clean white wines! This one should have been drunk a lot earlier than when I did. Hence, the rating is a bit skewed. Cashews, honey, old cut pear, and apple on the nose. Overripe apple on the palate with tired acidity. This would have been 3+ bones in its heyday, but sadly it doesn’t age that well… 2/5 bones $ Trebbiano, Grechetto, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc 13% abv Orvieto, ITALY…
