We have well and truly caught Olympic fever here in the office and following the performances, not to mention the controversies (green swimming pools, rogue bullets and Russian doping, to name a few) has certainly kept us entertained. However, we couldn’t let you lovely lot go thirsty while we sit back and discuss Phelps’ seemingly unearthly speed or Mo’s miraculous recovery. We have a moral duty to keep you well hydrated with fantastic booze and that’s exactly what we’re continuing to do.
So we’ve picked out our very own Champions, our favourite three South American wines, so you can get in the carnival spirit while cheering on from the sidelines/ sofa/ bar stool. ¡ Vamos !
Without further ado, in Bronze medal position is an Argentinian offering, the Pablo y Walter Malbec . All of the good things you hear about Argentinian Malbec are captured in this bottle, it’s vibrant, succulent and thanks to a bit of oak, sophisticated too. A well deserved third place!
Our silver medal winning bottle is a complex, elegant and traditionally made Chardonnay from the Casablanca Valley in Chile. This fresh and unoaked Ventisquero Chardonnay will team up perfectly with fish pie or chicken, ideal for an evening in the August sun.
And finally, in pole position, is the Alamos Malbec, this super smooth wine has certainly won our hearts, and with it’s dark, ripe and almost chocolatey flavours is a sure fire champion with roast meat and veg. Suitably delicious for our gold medal winner!
