Description

1x Fiorebella Rosso Appassimento, Rosso Del Veneto

Grapes from low-yielding vineyards around the town of San Pietro in Cariano, close to Verona, are employed to make this appassimento wine. The blend is 60% Corvina and 40% Merlot, the grapes grown on pergola Veronese and Guyot trained vines typical of the region. After hand picking, about 60% of the grapes are placed in wooden crates in a well-aerated loft and left to dry until December. During this appassimento the grapes will lose up to 50% of their original weight, in water, concentrating the colour and flavour compounds. These dried grapes are removed from the stems and undergo a slow, long fermentation. In February, this wine is blended with the product of the undried-fruit fermentation, and 50% of this blend is aged in American and French barriques for 12 months. Intense ruby-red, with a bouquet reminiscent of cherry, dried fruit, chocolate and prune; the palate is full-bodied, soft and round, with a spiciness and lingering finish.

1x Finca Las Moras Seremos Malbec, San Juan

This red wine is made by Finca los Moras in San Juan. Relish the heat up when paired with spicy dishes; peps up grilled and roasted beef or lamb dishes. Formed from primarily Malbec grapes, this wine is vegetarian and vegan friendly.

1x 770 Miles Zinfandel

A classic rich Zinfandel from California’s Central Valley. Flavours of coffee, blackberries and red berries on a warm and very lingering finish. 13.5%

1x Castillo De Mureva Organic Verdejo

Organic farming in Spain started in the 1970’s, since 2008 the amount of vineyard space dedicated to organic grapes has nearly doubled and continues to grow. This success has been due to the climate which prevents various diseases such as mould and mildew as well as low rainfall not being able to sustain weeds and inter vine foliage. This fresh and crisp wine has flowery and fruity aromas. On the palate, it has a rich smooth body with balanced acidity and hints of fennel, herbs, citrus fruits, melon and peach. Zesty and aromatic with a soft, ripe fruit an ideal partner for flavoursome seafood dishes.

1x Vidigal Vinho Verde 2018

Pale citric color with green tones. Transparent, fruity with hints of tropical fruits and flowers. Pleasant aftertaste with a light sweetness. Food Pairing: Seafood, salads, sushi, light meals. It can be served as a cocktail wine.

1x Tanners French Rosé, Côtes De Gascogne

Sourced from a family domaine in the Gers, this juicy, racy rosé has been a fantastic success since release. Vibrant summer fruits nose and a soft strawberry flavour mean one bottle isn’t enough! Vegan. Perfect when paired with cold meats.
