These wines from the Dunnes Stores Simply Better range will please every palate.

Simply Better Peter & Peter Riesling, Aus Der Steillage, Trocken, Mosel

NOW €12.79 WAS €15.99 | SAVE €3.20

For a serious food pairing, it’s difficult to look past Riesling as a wine for its versatility to combat and enhance a vast range of many varying flavours. This expression from the hilly Mosel Valley in is crisp and fresh with citrus vibrancy offset and balanced by an underlying honey sweetness. This wine has the flexibility to pair well with everything from crab cocktail to roasted vegetables.

Simply Better Albariño Nai e Señora

NOW €13.59 WAS €16.99 | SAVE €3.40

From the Atlantic kissed north-western shores of the Spanish region of Rias Baixas, Albariño is simply made for seafood. The saline minerality of the sea breeze imbues itself into the fruity aromatics enlivened by grapefruit citrus. Crisp, clean, and decidedly quaffable, the fruity and lemon peel core leads into saline minerality which makes it heavenly with all types of seafood.

Simply Better Tiki Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

NOW €11.99 WAS €14.99 | SAVE €3

This is a single vineyard wine from Tiki in New Zealand’s North Canterbury region and comes at a cracking price. This is a finely tuned and balanced wine; its rich fruit upheld and freshened by crisp citrus acidity with a lingering finish on the palate. This would make a smart accompaniment to all types of seafood, such as a salmon and shellfish, or indeed roasted poultry.

Simply Better Château de Pierreux Brouilly Rouge

NOW €15.99 WAS €19.99 | SAVE €4

From one of Beaujolais’ most beautiful estates comes this enticing organic and biodynamic wine. Made from gamay grapes, this silky yet more robust style of Beaujolais makes it an ideal food pairing wine. Soft and delicate red berry fruits elbow to the fore, with aromas cradled in a whisper of spice and minerality. Rustic and comforting dishes like Neven Maguire’s Easter Beef Pie would be well equipped to pair with a wine of this finesse for a match made in heaven.

Simply Better Morandé Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

NOW €13.59 WAS €16.99 | SAVE €3.40

While deservedly known for its red wines, the Maipo Valley in Chile is particularly celebrated for its rich and fruity cabernet sauvignons. Full bodied and well balanced, the palate is rounded by lively acidity and medium tannins where dark fruits take centre stage. Ageing for 12 months in French oak barrels offers added complexity and this would be a perfect pairing with the Simply Better Striploin Roast. Decant for an hour to bring out the best of this wine for a simply better experience.

Simply Better Chianti Classico

NOW €13.99 WAS €17.49 | SAVE €3.50

Partner this superb, full bodied red with your Easter Sunday roast lamb studded with garlic and rosemary. This wine presents a typical characteristic nose of scented red berry fruits like raspberry and cherries. The palate is defined by juicy, crunchy red fruits such as redcurrants, and is supported by fresh racy acidity and a hint of oak. Full-bodied with grippy tannins this is a finely balanced Chianti.
