Fortnightly wine spot (23/03/12)

Saint Clair Pioneer Block 20 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2009

This New Zealand white wine is nice, dry with a citrus/lime taste. Bought at just under £17 which I thought was a bit over-priced for this wine.  This wine goes well with seafood.

Serre Alte Barolo Riserva 2004

This Italian red wine I thought was alright but nothing special, in fact it was a bit disappointing. A very dry wine with no real substance to it – a bit of a light-weight for a red wine. Bought at just over £21 which is very over-priced. This wine goes well with cheese and red meat dishes.
