Warming Winter Reds

Warming Winter Reds

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).

I have highlighted below just a few of my favourites, but to see the full selection you can click here, or even better, why not drop into one of our 32 stores nationwide.

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.

“Shares more than a passing resemblance to a high-quality northern Rhone Syrah.....this medium-bodied, pure, fresh and beautifully focused Syrah has loads of personality and charm.”
