Julian Bicknell, Head Sommelier at Hawksmoor Air Street recommends Mas des Dames’ La Diva 2012

“Mas Des Dames ‘La Diva’ 2012 is simultaneously fun and expressive as well as serious and impressive. Traditional Syrah and Grenache are met by the intriguing Alicante here and this three-way is definitely one to try. An abundance of juicy berry fruit alongside dried cooking spices on the nose lead into a delivery of Christmas proportions on the palate! Full and balanced with an epic finish, this represents real bang for your buck. Utterly delicious. In order to see out the dark winter evenings, pair with spiced stews, char-grilled meats a la Hawksmoor or our incredible Tamworth Belly Ribs.”
