Wine of the week.....

Whilst having a browse around, I was persuaded to buy a bottle of this last week in a new(ish) local Wine shop in Stockbridge - Wine Utopia.

I was on the look-out for some Greek wine (other than Retsina) to take to a Greek themed dinner party, got chatting to the Shop Manager about New Zealand wines produced by the Stanley Estate & got onto the AlbariƱo grape variety, which is one that I knew nothing about.

A lovely light, white wine, the grape in mostly grown in north west Spain, but appears to be making an appearance in New Zealand & California.

Well worth a try in my opinion & was even a wine choice on Saturday Kitchen today.
