Brrr it’s starting to get chilly so definitely time for a handpicked selection of current shop favourites, all in one handy 6 pack.
This selection keeps things autumnal with some lighter reds, moving into ripe wines from the southern Rhone, Italy, Spain and of course a big hug in a glass from Argentina. We hope you enjoy working your way through the selection as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
Here’s the run down of what to expect. Free delivery included if you’d like it dropped to your home (or Click & Collect if you fancy popping in to say hi):
Neropasso Mabis – Intense ruby red turning to garnet with ageing. Bouquet is spicy with hints of cherry, black cherry and plum compote. fine and velvety palate, persistent, with soft tannins at the end. This is a firm custom favourite, very juicy and full flavoured.
Pulenta Estate ‘La Flor’ Cabernet Sauvignon – A powerful, rich, intense full-bodied red wine from one of our favourite Malbec producers. Loaded with plum, cassis and spicy notes on the nose and palate, as well as chocolate and coconut as a result of ageing in oak.
Ja! by Tinedo Organic Tempranillo – A beautiful bright red purple colour. On the nose, it is intense and fruity. In the mouth, alive and fresh, with soft tannins. Owners Manuel, Esperanza and Amparo Álvarez-Arenas, have lead the pursuit of terroir-expressive wines since 2002. They have also reinforced social and agricultural sustainability in this area. Their wines are totally organic, raw, vibrant interpretations of La Mancha wines with no oak treatment to mask a pure expression of the fruit.
Cuvee des Copains Cotes du Rhone – Made by Les Vignerons d’Estezargues a co-operative of more than 10 difference growers in the small town of Estezargues, west of Avignon. They are one of France’s most ground breaking co-ops. Their Andezon Syrah is all iron and deep wintery red, whereas this more playful cotes-du-rhone leans towards Greanche and fresher style thats a bit of a crowd pleaser.
Mimic Shiraz – A southern Spanish take on an old Aussie favourite. On the nose is a heady mix of plum, cassis, damson and smooth vanilla with a touch of spice and very slight touch of mint. The palate is equally impressive, showing more dark fruits, cherry, plum, more savoury damson and creamy smooth vanilla, lingering with structured acidity and lasting warmth on the end palate. Great value shiraz that’s not had to travel so far.
Terre di Montelusa Primitivo – This smooth, juicy Primitivo is full of Southern Puglian character. With medium body, ripe, sun blushed fruit, a touch of spice and soft velvety texture. The finish is smokey and earthy with a little dark chocolate.
