Camboral Rioja Reserva

This classic Spanish wine presents a ruby red colour and is made from a selection of La Rioja’s Tempranillo grapes and aged in oak barrels for 24 months. Its aroma evokes fruity dark berry notes, with a well balanced balsamic bouquet and a back note of vanilla. This wine pairs perfectly with the range of award-winning Dunnes Stores Simply Better Ibérico Pork.
Esquinas de Argento Malbec
Produced in Mendoza, the heart of Argentina’s wine country, this superb red wine is deep purple with layers of indigo displaying aromas of red cherry, ripe plum, blackberry and truffle. Juicy flavours of plum jam and sweet cherry, with a touch of chocolate and cinnamon from oak ageing, lead into a long lingering finish with velvety tannins. Pair with the range of Simply Better 28 Day Matured Irish Angus Steaks for a winning combination.
Chianti Classico DOCG Campomaggio
This Decanter World Wine Award-winning Chianti Classico has been produced using grapes grown on the 27-hectare Campomaggio vineyard.

Full-bodied, with a very smooth palate, silky tannins and round finish with a long fruity dominance. Enjoy with the range of Dunnes Stores Simply Better Italian pasta sauces and new range of Italian pizzas for the perfect night in.
Tiki Grey Label Sauvignon Blanc
Produced using grapes grown on Royce and Sue McKean’s vineyards in the Upper Wairau Valley in Marlborough New Zealand, this award-winning Sauvignon Blanc showcases a complex flavour profile achieved by the different terroirs of the Tiki Estate. Tropical passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus flavours are enhanced by herbaceous nettle tones creating a delightful mouth-filling palate with great length and flavour. This wine pairs perfectly with the range of Simply Better Italian filled pasta, particularly the Italian Basil Girasoli.
Albariño Naie Señora
This Albariño wine from the Salnés Valley, in the Rías Baixas region, benefits from a climate influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. This renowned Spanish wine has an attractive golden colour with shimmering pale green highlights. It has a fragrant fresh bouquet with notes of aromatic herbs that blend with a touch of grapefruit and mandarins. On the mouth, this wine presents good acidity, with round, rich fruity notes. This fresh white pairs well with the Simply Better Irish Crab and Irish King Scallops range.
Torre Oria Cava Brut Reserva
Produced by the Oria de Rueda family in Valencia, Spain, this Cava Reserva is made from Macabeo and Chardonnay grapes. It is aged for a minimum of 15 months resulting in a beautiful straw yellow colour with golden highlights, and a powerful, clean, persistent aroma, which is fresh on the palate with a magnificent presence. It offers a wealth of complex, elegant flavours including savoury peach, tropical fruit and spring flower tones. Try it with the Simply Better 12 Month Matured Spanish Manchego or 30 Month Matured Parmigiano Reggiano for the ultimate wine and cheese pairing.
