With all the festivities done and dusted for another year, I for one am looking forward to spending some quiet nights in by the fire with a warming glass of red over the next few weeks.
If that sounds appealing to you too, read on as we have put together a stunning set of twelve winter reds, all of which we are offering as part of a buy 1 bottle get 2nd bottle Half Price promotion (Mix & Match).
Wonderfully fruity, smooth and spicy, Purato Nero d’Avola is a stunning, organic red made with Sicily’s signature grape variety. This particular vintage picked up a Silver Medal at the International Wine & Spirit Challenge 2015.
Duorum Colheita is the result of collaboration between two of the most renowned winemakers in Portugal. Always a favourite with the critics, this 2013 vintage comes highly recommended by Jancis Robinson:
“Inky core. Ripe, fruit-cake aroma. Rich and dry and a good-value intro to the Douro. Power-packed, thick texture. Flavour and impact!”
For my last selection I have chosen Michel Gassier Syrah, this winery has been recognised as the region’s finest by Robert Parker and this vintage was rated ‘Outstanding’ in his Wine Advocate.
