Rich Ripe Reds Mixed Case, £66
1:33pm Thursday 6th October 2011 in Wine offers
This month’s case contains some of the classic grape varieties that really shine when handled well by good winemakers using modern equipment.
These rich ripe wines go very well with a wide variety of food and can also be enjoyed equally well on their own because of their smooth velvety texture.
Special discounted case price £66 (Normal price £76.89)
Includes three bottles of each of the following four wines:
Terra Firma Nero D’Avola 2009, Sicily
With notes of red cherry and currant, this wine is soft and succulent with good smooth textured rich fruit – great with rich pasta dishes or casseroles.
Borsao Garnacha 2009, Spain
Always a popular wine because of its deep rich spicy fruit, the Garnacha grape variety gives this wine a very soft but ultra fruity style that never fails to satisfy. Good with any red meat dish.
Rio Alto Shiraz 2010, Chile
Rounded with very good fruit definition and that drink me factor, this wine has deep raspberry fruit, spice and delightful floral aspects that linger on the palate. Great with grilled meat in particular.
Orchid Boulevard Merlot 2009, California
Very soft and easy drinking Merlot with touches of plums and spice mingled with subtle touches of red berry fruit. Lovely with home cooked pizza or rich Italian dishes.
