Alma Mora Finca Las Moras Viognier, Argentina
This Viognier from Alma Mora has a wonderful yellow colour with intense green hues. A combination of flowers and fruit, orange blossom and ripe apricot with a hint of pineapple. Full-bodied, refreshing and persistent on the palate, aromas of ripe apricots and peaches. A perfect accompaniment to more intricate Indian and Asian dishes.
Puycheric Cabernet Sauvignon, Southern France
A southern French extremely good value Cabernet Sauvignon. The warmer climate allows the tannins to build to give this wine some considerable substance, which makes it a great match to spicier but well-balanced dishes.
