DRINK OF THE WEEK
2nd December 2013
Martinez Marsala Superiore Riserva
Marks and Spencer £6.49 (half bottle)
Drinker Rating 93
OK so it's December now and you'll be wanting to know what to drink at every possible juncture. Let's start with a mince pie, you'll need a sweet rich and figgy wine and this little belter is just the ticket.
Marsala is so often used as an ingredient rather than a tipple and this is such a shame. This wine is at 115 M&S stores and even when they stock it the half bottle is sometimes hard to find. But it's well worth it. Ripe sweet raisin, cinamon, appleand cloves, will easily suit mince pies and Christmas Pud.
