Looking for a bottle of something for that special someone this Valentine’s Day? Here are five of our favourites, perfect for a romantic evening:
1. Château de Belleverne Saint-Amour
There’s no avoiding the appropriate name and the wine certainly lives up to it. Delicate with wild strawberry fruit and a touch of liquorice spice.
2. Ferghettina Franciacorta Brut
Less well-known than Champagne, Franciacortca comes from the Lombardy region of Italy and is Italy’s delicious answer to the ubiquitous French fizz. Well worth a try and what romantic evening would be complete without a glass of something sparkling?!
3. Prá Morandina Volpolicella
Like a hug in front of the fire! Think cherries, almonds and a touch spice.
4. Cape Coral Mourvèdre
Take a classic French grape, give it a South African twist and you have Cape Coral Mourvèdre. Dry and clean, slightly creamy with a delicate minerality. Stunning with delicately spicy food; who says rosé is only for summer!
5. Château de Santenay Saint-Aubin
Good white Burgundy never fails to impress and this is a beauty. Soft stone fruit and a slight vanilla-oak note. A touch of minerality on the finish. If you’re looking to wow, then this might be your wine!
