Reminding you that I am an ‘ABC’ when it comes to white wine (anything but Chardonnay and not really a fan of Sauvignon) so I like to try anything but…..
Whereas I would never normally buy a Gavi wine (made from the cortese grape and grown in Northern Italy), this one was given to me by someone who drinks it on a very regular basis.
It went down very well with my Sunday roast chicken and I can imagine, it would be great with fish and pasta – plus I can’t quite get over the very ‘easy to swallow’ price of £6.50.
The tasting notes describe it as ‘rich and citrussy with some orange blossom’ – the grapes are late harvest and it as been slowly fermented with a just a touch of oak. A really long finish as they say – and great after a long day. Now here’s to a long weekend…..

Coming soon – and in the words of my husband – ‘you can’t beat a Chilean Merlot’ or can you?
