Press ReviewPress

Versatility, food-friendliness and vibrant fruit – this had all the hallmarks of a Gold-winning wine. Robert Mason of Cheese at Leadenhall enjoyed its ‘fresh, wet stones and bright red cherry aromas, then raspberry, strawberry and slight tropical hints on the palate with refreshing acidity, juicy, vibrant fruit flavours and a fresh finish’, while Hakkasan Group’s Olivier Gasselin also picked up on its ‘orange peel, raspberry and violet notes, delicate and subtle, crisp, crunchy fruit character’. Sunaina Sethi of JKS Restaurants thought this was ‘great value, and a real food wine, great with salmon tartare’.

At this time of year, keep things light, in terms of both style and alcohol. Avoid heavily oaked wines, and opt for fruity, fresher styles. Cotes de Provence is now a Summer staple, and Great Western Wine have an impressive array of these, but if you’re looking to drink pink with your barbecue, why not move a little further west from the Riviera and try the vibrantly fruity, and ridiculously good value Domaine du Donjon, Minervois stashed with red berry and citrus-licked fruit; bring on the seared tuna.
