Product Details

Two bottles of each of the following -

Ecker Eckhof Zweigelt Brillant 2018

Zweigelt; an Austrian specialty, is an increasingly fashionable variety. With relatively low alcohol, crunchy cherry fruit and refreshing acidity, it’s a perfect summer red. Bernhard Ecker’s Zweigelt is a great introduction to the grape.

Ad Libitum Maturana Tinta Rioja 2017

Maturana Tinta is an old Riojan grape variety so obscure, it was rediscovered by Juan Carlos Sancha. With darker fruit and more acidity than Tempranillo, and aged in French oak, this isn’t typical Rioja, but it’s a lovely wine.

Marco Abella Priorat Loidana 2018

From his winery in Porrera, David Marco makes supremely elegant Priorat wines without any trace of over-extraction. Loidana is a blend of Garnacha, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for twelve months in French oak.

Tenuta San Leonardo Terre di San Leonardo 2016

There’s nothing unusual about the varieties in this wine; Bordeaux blends are common almost everywhere, but not in Trentino. San Leonardo is one of Italy’s greatest wines, and Terre, it’s little brother, is pretty special too.

Centopassi Nero d'Avola Argille di Tagghia Via di Suta 2016

Centopassi was set up to make wine from vineyards confiscated from Sicilian Mafia bosses, and if this Nero d’Avola is anything to go by, they owned some very good vineyards! A beautifully rich yet elegant wine.

Bodegas Garzon Tannat Reserve 2017

Tannat is to Uruguay what Malbec is to Argentina. In France’s Madiran, Tannat can be tannic and tough, but in a warmer climate it sheds its hard exterior and makes a powerful but easy-drinking wine. I must try it with corned beef!
