Default Chilled Rose

At lunchtime i really enjoy a chilled glass (or bottle) of Rose, i noticed many restaurants have the same house wine, i think it's called Nibola? Has anybody else tried it? i looked in shops for it and found it on my last day in the littele supermarket just up from Restaurant Coral (towards boquer valley) for 4euros!! couldn't beleive it was so cheap, very dry and crisp, tastes like a good quality wine. Can anyone confirm the name and if they have seen it in the port for sale this year, many thanks. Liz

Sounds like plenty of wine on the balcony before we go out for dinner is the way to go this year, at €2-€4 euros a bottle think we can afford to go wild and have a bottle each before we go out

That sounds good Joanne! Splash out and pop into the Voramar supermarket for a bottle of chilled Freixnet demi sec cava for only 5.50 - its up the back on the left of the bakery. Yummy as any Moet Chandon IMO!

I love Macia Batle rose during the summer months as lots of flavour and lovely aroma - very fruity (rasberries and strawberries) and very moreish. Not a cheap one but worth paying that bit of extra for a decent wine. Think it is about 7 or 8 euros in supermarkets - just realized I have not had any this year - I have bought it at the Cellar over the last couple of years so must pop on down.

For all you fans of Marques de Riscal Reserva 2003, it's currently on offer in the UK at Sainsbury's with £3 off.

Rachel

J Ferrer blanc de blanc and Macia Battle whites are good - very dry like the sauvignon blancs you mentioned. These are both Mallorcan wines.

Regards
