Top 10 wines in the UK press

7th July, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Pedro’s Almacenista Selection Fino Jerez, Spain

finoSusy Atkins revealed her favourite summer apéritifs writing in The Telegraph this week, explaining its all about the “tang”.

She said: “Dry sherry has a briny, green-olive attack,” advising: “Serve it very cold, the better to bring out its lemon-peel bite and salty edge. Then there’s dry sparkling wine, the most obvious apéritif of all. In decent sparklers, there’s high acidity as well as masses of tiny bubbles waltzing on the tongue. So, there’s a certain sharpness, piquancy, tart edge to each. Yep, a tang is what makes the perfect apéritif.”

She described Pedro’s Almacenista as “a fine and distinctive fino, very pale copper, olive-scented with a nutty hint, and whistle-clean taste of grapefruit peel.”

Price: £10.99, Majestic, or £9.74 each for two or more until 1 September

  1. Dear DB editor,
    I always love reading your articles where I can find new wines to enjoy, as long as I can get them whenever I am back in Europe. I’d like to bring to your attention that you have swapped the label shots of the Muscadet and the Verdicchio. I would love to try those two wines!!
    Best regards,
    Dominique
