Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: The Doctors Riesling 2015 (The Corkscrew €19.95)

I love Riesling. I think it is the most versatile and expressive grape and produces some of the best wines in the world. Some of the most famous Riesling in the world comes from the Mosel region of Germany and many producers try to emulate this style throughout the wine world. This week I had…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: The Doctors Riesling 2015 (The Corkscrew €19.95)

Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Elian Da Ros Ce Vin est un Fête’ 2015 (Terroirs €16.50 Reduced From €19.95)

I’ve passed Terroirs in Donnybrook quite a few times, but always seemed to be rushing somewhere and therefore not had the time to stop in. The name itself has peaked my interest and I managed to get a moment to visit this week and have a look around. I was greeted by Françoise, one of…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Elian Da Ros Ce Vin est un Fête’ 2015 (Terroirs €16.50 Reduced From €19.95)

Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Blank Bottle Koffer 2016 (Blackrock Cellar €32)

This week I took a recommendation from Blackrock Cellar home in the form of Blank Bottle Winery’s Koffer 2016. This is a wine made from 100% Cinsault, which is a grape I have little experience with. It produces light to medium bodied red wines and is a component of some Rhone wines. Along with Pinot…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Blank Bottle Koffer 2016 (Blackrock Cellar €32)

Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Dr Deinhard Weisser Burgunder Trocken 2015 (The Corkscrew €17.95)

We’ve been experiencing a bout of delightful weather in Ireland over the past couple of weeks. This has, as you would expect, dictated my drinking choices and this weeks wine tip is a product of this influence. This was recommended to me when I was in The Corkscrew on Friday night for a light and fresh…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Dr Deinhard Weisser Burgunder Trocken 2015 (The Corkscrew €17.95)

Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Domaine La Baume ‘Elisabeth’ Viognier 2015 (SuperValu €10 reduced from €12)

This week’s recommend comes from a grape that is less well known than a lot of others, but can produce some outstanding wines, which often get overlooked. Viognier is one of my favourite grapes, although I usually find it in a  blended wine accompanied by another grape such as Chenin Blanc. It is a grape that…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Domaine La Baume ‘Elisabeth’ Viognier 2015 (SuperValu €10 reduced from €12)

Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Ilauri Avalos Pecorino Colline Pescaresi 2015 (Blackrock Cellar Reduced to €16.95 from €18.95)

This week’s wine recommendation is a lovely Pecorino I picked up in Blackrock Cellar, which was on special offer. I was passing through Blackrock High Street and though I would pop into Blackrock Cellar as I’d read a lot of great things about their selection and customer service. I asked for a recommendation from one…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Ilauri Avalos Pecorino Colline Pescaresi 2015 (Blackrock Cellar Reduced to €16.95 from €18.95)

Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Freeman’s Bay ‘Winemaker’s Reserve’ Pinot Gris 2016 (Aldi €7.99)

This week I tried a few wines and funnily enough it was a cheap and cheerful choice from Aldi that made the cut. I normally shop in Lidl, truth be told. But there have been a few people telling me to check out Aldi’s selection, so I thought I’d give them a try. I picked…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Freeman’s Bay ‘Winemaker’s Reserve’ Pinot Gris 2016 (Aldi €7.99)
