Drinks of the Month
Wine of the week: Morande One to One Pais
They say that the best wine is the bottle that’s empty at the end of the evening and so it proved with this light Chilean red which I shared with my neighbours the other night.
It’s made by Morandé from the widely planted pais (pronounced pye-eece) which has been disregarded for years but is now being used to make appealingly fresh tasting fruity reds that are just right for a warm summer’s evening.
Like Beaujolais, which it resembles, you can drink it lightly chilled with charcuterie, salads and other picnicky food or even with fish. It would be great with seared tuna for example.
And the best news of all? It’s available in Majestic for a very reasonable £6.99 on their mix six deal.
NB probably not for you if you’re a fan of full-bodied reds as I know many are, even during the summer months but I loved it.
