Arenile Pecorino Tierre Di Chieti IGT
This cooperative was founded in 1969 and has produced some of the region’s most exciting wines, with over 400 members and 700 hectares of vines. The Pecorino vines are grown on sandy, limestone soils in close proximity to the sea which allows the grapes to ripen but retain freshness. This vintage wine spent around 4 months on the lees just to add to the texture and complexity.

In the glass the Pecorino is pale yellow with hints of green. The nose is fruit driven with notes of banana, lime, mango and pineapple. The palate is rounded and juicy, with a great backbone of acidity and consistent minerality throughout. A good choice for those who enjoy Viognier.
Aperitif, light creamy cheeses

‘R’ de Rieussec 2018, Bordeaux Blanc Sec£29.95 More info & buy An almost equal blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon provides a nose of grapefruit and lime peel, then after a few minutes the Sémillon takes the lead role boasting notes of white peach and toasty hazelnut. The palate is bone dry but has a wonderful ripeness of fruit and a creamy mouth filling texture. There's a hint of vanilla and oak spice on the finish which is beautifully balanced. 'R' de Rieussec is still only made in relatively small quantities and expresses the richness of Sauternes without the residual sugar.
