What's in the box:
Chateau Du Barrailh, La Grave Singalier, 2019
A Merlot dominant blend that misses out on the Graves region by about 200m. Soft, fruity and medium bodied this is a classic Bordeaux with a cedary finish. A super smooth red which is a step up in excellence from the basic Claret, Bordeaux Supérieur is the official next level in quality from the usual plonk. Super good value and a real crowd pleaser.
Moulin de Gassac, Pinot Noir, 2022
The warm climate of the Languedoc might not be the natural home of Pinot Noir, but in the hands of Mas de Daumas Gassac such concerns have been successfully put aside. This is light and fresh easy drinking. A brilliantly inexpensive Languedoc Pinot Noir from an iconic producer.
Grandes Vinos, Y Vinedos, 3C, 2022
Fermentation is temperature controlled in stainless steel, the wine is bottled Shortly after fermentation is complete, without ageing. Packed full of cherry fruit, this bright and lively number is a steal.
Eric Bouletin, Pichot Roucas, 2020
A micro-production here from 50yo grenache/Carignan planted on silt from the Ouvèze river. Harvested by hand and vinified in concrete tanks & bottled unfined and unfiltered with low level of SO2. Very well made from a top producer this wine has pedigree and does not break the bank.
Ciu Ciu, Rosso Piceno Bacchus, 2022
Their signature red bears all the hallmarks of quality Marche production and Bacchus is a prime example of this with a nose of strawberry backed up with dark cherries and liquorice. This wine possesses great structure combined with an uncomplicated juiciness. Great value everyday red. Just the right amount of fruit, spiciness and earthiness. Charming organic Southern Italian red that never fails to disappoint.
AA Badenhorst, Secateurs Shiraz Cinsault, 2021
All grapes are hand-picked, chilled overnight and then crushed into open concrete tanks for natural primary fermentation which lasts around two weeks. The tanks are foot stomped, twice daily during this time. The finished wine is run off into old casks and concrete tanks The blended wine was left on its gross lees in casks, foudres and concrete tanks for 7 months before being bottled. Lightly filtered but not fined. Far from the confected and jammy Shiraz you might think, this is elegant and spicy and again cracking value.
