RASCALS: YOU BUY THE BEER, WE’LL MAKE THE DONATION
For every webshop order in January we’re donating €1 to The Irish Blue Cross.
Less than a hundred feet from us here in Goldenbridge Estate, Inchicore, is the headquarters for The Irish Blue Cross. Pets need their help and they need your help! Due to COVID-19 government restrictions, their operations have changed significantly. The Irish Blue Cross is already extremely stretched due to the global pandemic and they are working around the clock to treat the tens of thousands of patients already on their files.
The Irish Blue Cross is an animal welfare charity with a practical and caring approach at the heart of their clinical work. The veterinary team provide information, support and education on how to be a responsible pet owner and ensure precious pets have a happy and healthy life.
Supervalu's Current Wine Offers Focus on Organic and Vegan, also on Alcohol Free
Supervalu's first wine offer of the year focuses on a selection of Vegan wines plus a range of Low Alcohol wines for January. It is up and running and due to end on January 20th after which another tempting offer will kick in. Just remember that, just like O'Briens below, Loyalty points will not be earned on the purchase of alcohol products.
The WINE OF THE MONTH is GIGONDAS REMY FERBRAS 75cl at only €12, was €19.66. This excellent wine from the Lower Rhone grows on a rocky argillaceous limestone terroir, to allow the best expression of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The classic vinification preserves the authenticity and elegance of this wine. To be served with roast lamb, game and casseroles, also perfect with mature cheese.
Rioja, with two from Finca Labarca and one by plus the La Maldita Garnacha, is well worth a try. I have my eye on the Abellio Albarino (now at €10.00 instead of 13.76). Made entirely from hand-harvested Albarino grapes, this Spanish wine, from the Rias Baixas area, has a mid-gold colour. Quite rich aromas of white fruit, apple and pear, and also peach. There is a striking refreshing minerality on the palate where the same fruit flavours shine through fresh and crisp.
The Albarino grape is a distinctive Northern Spanish variety. Its refreshing characteristics make it very versatile with fish and particularly with seafood. Often recommended for Asian also.
On the dry for January? Then help is at hand from two well-known producers. Torres feature with Naturo Muscat and Syrah while Freixenet have a Cava on offer, all non alcoholic.
