Tasting table Three from Oddbins

10 April, 2009

Pinot Grigio, IGT Venezia Giulia 2008, Italy (rrp £13.99)

This deliberately oxidized wine has a rustic nose of hay, nutmeg and elderflower, followed by red apple, dried apricots and orange peel in the mouth with a nutty finish. LC

Terra Andina Carmenère Rosé 2008, Central Valley, Chile (rrp £5.49)

This vivid pink rosé is a perfect summer slurper, with cherry and vanilla on the nose. It's smooth on the palate with wild strawberries and sweet popcorn, and a spicy close. LC

Aurora Syrah 2006, Central Otago, New Zealand (rrp £17.99)

The quality of this new parcel certainly matches its price tag. A dense, brash wine with cracked black pepper and plum aromas, and in the mouth luscious cherries and blackberries just on the edge of ripeness. A long finish of white pepper and lingering acidity. LC
