As promised - some great April offers

April Special Offers – REAL SAVINGS ON REAL WINE

Degani Valpolicella Classico 2008 – save €3, now only €9.99
The wines of Aldo Degani seem to get better and better each year and this Valpolicella is a perfect quaffer for Spring. Light, fruity with lovely pure cherry fruit, this is dangerously easy drinking. A good crowd pleaser.
Chateau Noaillac Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2006. Was €16.99, now €14.99
If spring lamb is on your menu this month, good Bordeaux is the perfect match. This is lovely, medium-bodied with just the right structure and fruit to make it a perfect food wine. Decant or open for a couple of hours and this is great value at this money.

Pesquera Ribera del Duero Crianza 2006 – RRP €25, now €20
Sometimes a wine just has everything and this is one of them. The granddaddy of them all in Ribera del Duero continues to dazzle. This is full-bodied, rich with leather and spice and ripe fruit all wrapped up in a smooth texture and long length. Very special wine.

Verus Pinot Gris 2008, Slovenia – RRP €19, now €15
Want to try something not only different, but delicious? This Pinot Gris from a really good producer is great stuff – medium bodied with really nice balance, clean fruit flavours and a long finish.
