September News

September Offers
Gregoris Soave Classico – RRP €13 – now €10
Many of you are already familiar with the excellent Pinot Grigio from Antonio Fattori, under the Gregoris label. Well, we have tasted his Soave a lot over the years and finally this year, we feel it is as good as its sister Pinot Grigio. Clean, fresh fruit, medium-bodied, soft but nicely balanced, this is excellent wine. Unfortunately, he sent it to us in the wrong bottle (it should be in a Burgundy shaped bottle), so we need to sell this wine before we ship the wine in its correct packaging. (The bottle is fine, but it looks too much like the Pinot Grigio). Come and taste and you won’t get a better white at this price.
Domaine La Prade Sauvignon Blanc – RRP €10 – now €8
Domaine La Prade make an excellent range of well-made varietal wines in the South of France. The Sauvignon Blanc has great freshness, crisp acidity and typical zingy, grassy Sauvignon fruit that has made this variety such a hit all over the world. Terrific stuff at a tenner, complete steal at this price.
Domaine La Prade Merlot – RRP €10 – now €8
Quite full-bodied, with round, plummy fruit, soft tannins and a nice finish. Perfect house wine and great value.
Contrade del Falco, Puglia – RRP €17 – now €14
Back by popular demand, this is a terrific blend of Negroamaro and Malvasia from the ‘heel’ of Italy. Full-bodied, voluptuous, smooth and harmonious, dark, brooding fruit and a long finish.

Spanish Wine Tasting
We are delighted to have all these interesting new businesses open in Dalkey and we would like to support one of them by hosting a Spanish Wine tasting in the Dalkey Dispensary on Tuesday, September 20th at 7.30pm. Antonio from specialist Spanish wine importer Vinostito will be along to taste some of the great new wines coming out of Spain. We might even wangle a tapas or two out of the Dispensary. Cost will be €20 per head.
