Tom's Wine Choice of the Month

Tom's Wine Choice of the Month

Whitmore & White

My wine of the month, El Primero Graciano-Garnacha, from Navarra, Spain is also in my opinion the best value for money red in the range. Graciano and Garnacha are grapes used with Tempranillo to make Rioja but here they take centre stage to produce a juicy fruit-bomb.

Navarra is the neighbouring region to Rioja and is particularly suited to producing rich, spicy Garnacha, but it's the fresh, ripe Graciano character I find really interesting.

If you're thinking of having lamb cutlets, the El Primero is a great wine match. Blackcurrant and Blackberry abound with a hint of spice and a vibrant acidity that cuts through the fat of the lamb while remaining ridiculously gluggable!

Call into the store for a bottle one weekend this month - you won't be disappointed!
