Be My Valentine?
A note from Sean Welsh – Wine expert from Flourish and Prosper:
What could say it better than a case of superb wines to be shared over a number of romantic evenings? I have chosen a few seductive and charming wines that are bound to move the heart of the object of your desire.
*Pasion de Bobal, Utiel Requena, Spain 2009*
Dark and brooding with a passionate and intense heart, this is modern Spain at its best. ‘A racy and pleasure bent offering that over delivers’. Layers of seductive fruit, chocolate notes and hints of vanilla make this a wine to be savoured slowly.
*St Amour, Cru Beaujolais, France 2010*
Beaujolais has had a real return to form in recent years and this wine from one of the 10 Cru Villages shows why. Bright red fruit, good acidity and a mouthful of cherries and spices, make it an excellent match for those small anti-pasta dishes perfect for sharing with a lover
*Passion has Red Lips Cabernet Shiraz, Australia 2010*
See the label on this bottle and you will be in no doubt that it screams sex appeal. From the very talented wine making team known as Some Young Punks it is wine with attitude that says I am sexy and I know it. Irresistible!
*Laurent Perrier Rose Champagne NV, France*
What romantic occasion is complete without Champagne? Laurent Perrier Rose is the UK’s best selling Rose Champagne for good reason. It has lifted red fruits over a tight mousse and refreshing acidity that is just moderated by a ripeness of fruit. Lush!
*Miopasso Fiano, Sicily, 2010*
Try saying Miopasso and not feeling good about life. This wine comes from a modern winery in Sicily. The grape variety is Fiano which produces an elegant crisp dry white with a long lean body and a pleasing finish. It is beautifully understated which makes it even more charming as a result.
*Hidden Bay Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough 2010, New Zealand*
What could be more romantic than your own hidden bay? Marlborough Sauvignon is loved for it fresh cut grass aromas, its lemony acidity and refreshing no nonsense finish. Perfect on a secluded beach it will even brighten a chilly winter’s day.
