|Light & medium bodied juicy reds
|801. 2014 Grenache Merlot, LES VIGNES DE L’EGLISE - LANGUEDOC
Good depth of colour, and a good balance between the opulent fruit and full, robust tannins. Stunning for the price.
|802. 2011 Corbieres, LES FORTS DE BORIES-AZEAU - LANGUEDOC
Deeply coloured, with a soft, silky texture and ripe, supple tannins. Bramble fruits and spice are to the fore here, with a lingering finish.
|805. 2014 Montepulciano d'abruzzo, GRAN SUSSO - ITALY
Deep black-red in colour with a youthful dark purple hue. A great Monty!
|803. 2013 Monastrell, BODEGAS CASTANO - SPAIN
Intense aromas of ripe red fruit. Wonderful with cheese
|813. 2013 Merlot, Montes Alpha, COLCHAGUA VALLEY, CHILE
Spicy black pepper full of harmony and soft on the palate
|812. 2013 Dolcetto d’Alba, GD VAJRA – PIEDMONT, ITALY
I was gobsmacked by its drinkability. If you enjoy Montepulciano or other similar reds from Italy try this - simply fantastic value.
|819. 2013 Fleurie, Arnaud Auœur
Arnaud Auœur produces a small amount from 70yr old vines offerssleek fruit and elegance but is deeper, darker, more structured and age-worthy, put simply a brilliant addition to our wine list!
|818. 2011 Chianti Riserva, DA VINCI - TUSCANY
This wine is matured in small oak barrels which help to provide complexity and a lovely richness of flavour. On the pallet there are notes of vanilla, cherries and blackberries
|821. 2013 Pinot Noir Enco, Anakena - VALLE DE LEYDA, CHILE
Strawberry aromas, some black pepper, medium bodied with elegant flavours. Great with cold meat platters and fresh cheeses.
|808. 2013 Juliénas, DOMAINE DU CLOS DU FIEF, MICHEL TETE – BEAUJOLAIS
One of my favourite producers, and this does not let me down. Beautifully balanced, graceful style of Gamay. Stunning value.
|822. 2011 Palazzo Della Torre, ALLEGRINI - VERONA
Deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of cherry and black forest gateaux. This wine has good body and an ageing potential of at least ten years. It has a smooth and velvety character, with mature, pulpy fruit and delicious raisin flavours.
|820. 2011 Merlot, ALexandre, Lapostolle, COLCHAGUA VALLEY, CHILE
100% Organic grapes, with 15% Carmenere for structure and spice. Expext full cassis, chocolate & balck cherry flavours. An outstanding Chilean Merlot
