Three to Try: Our Top Picks from Tindal Wines’ Portfolio Tasting

Three to Try Our Top Picks from Tindal Wines' Portfolio Tasting edited

Last Tuesday 6th of February, we attended a tasting of wines from the comprehensive portfolio of Tindal Wine Merchants, a family-owned importer bringing fine wines from both Europe and the New World into the Irish market.

The event, held at the stylish Marker Hotel, was followed by a consumer tasting on the same evening, where wine lovers discovered over 35 wine producers coming from around 40 regions.

Here are three of our favourite wines from this tasting…

Elegance and balance. This organic Riesling offers a crisp and harmonius combination of white flowers and a stone river-like minerality.

Spicy and lean, this dry Portuguese red by Quinta do Vesuvio offers floral aromas with dark, ripe berries and a hint of cocoa on the palate.

Vanilla and clove together with a pleasant toastiness are delivered by gentle tannins.
