Top 10 wines in the UK press3rd February, 2014 by Lauren May
Val de Pedron Monastrell 2012 Alicante, Spain
Among Victoria Moore’s recommendations this week, Writing in The Telegraph, was this Mouvédre wine from Spain.
She said: “Monastrell – Mourvèdre, in France – often tastes dark and black, filled with tannin and a slight rustic riffle. This one is very smooth and relaxed, ripe and comfortable.
“It has a little bit of oak – French – and is rounded out with 5% Syrah. An easy-going Spanish red like this makes a good accompaniment to slow-cooked lamb or a meaty fish like tuna.”
Price: £7.99, Marks & Spencer
