Last Thursday we resumed our fortnightly tastings by delving into a selection of Winter Warming reds. Even though they’re easy to love when it’s cold outside we were surprised at just *how* well they went down!
The three sell outs of the evening were;
Guelbenzu Azul, Ribera del Queiles, Spain £11.80 – this is one of Thom’s favourite wines so we had to show it! An oaked Tempranillo blend this is ripe, rich and toasty, well liked for having a wonderful balance between old world style and new world body.
Varvaglione Negroamaro, Puglia, Italy £11 – proving rather popular at the moment with its super smooth, silky berry fruit. This caught many people out – assuming that it was new world! A great one to try to ease yourself into Italian reds.
Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz, Australia £12.70 – a seriously good old vine Shiraz with concentrated fruit and fine tannic structure. New world but with lots of class were the comments from our tasters!
More stock of these wines will be in next week, get your pre-orders in now as we don’t expect them to stick around for long!
