Take solace in this box of six, packed with essential drinking for the coming weeks in lockdown. From the comfort of your home you'll explore Europe from East to West; taking you on a journey from Hungary to Lisbon, via the sun drenched vineyards of Puglia, the fragrant French garrique, and the 600m high slopes surrounding Valencia.
Dominio de Tharsys Cava Brut Nature - Made in the Champagne method in a typically dry style (0.8g/l residual sugar), this Cava from near Valencia is clean, crisp and refreshing. Citrus and floral aromas on the nose and a lovely creamy finish. A perfect accompaniment to tapas.
Little Cricket Gruner Veltliner - Usually identified with Austria, this fabulous wine from Hungary will give a real challenge to the over supplied Pinot Grigio's and Sauvignon Blanc's of today. Fresh and lively with aromas of lemon and apple. Light-bodied with nice acidity. Dry, clean, and crisp with citrus notes, yellow plum, light green apple, & a hint of white pepper. Excellent as a starter/aperitif or pair with savoury starters, pasta & seafood dishes including tapas, antipasti, shrimp salad & sushi.
Julia Florista Branco - The Julia Florista White has fresh, fruity aromas, tropical fruits and citrus standing out passion-fruit. Mineral is present. Round and pleasant finale. Pair with grilled fish, seafood, pasta and white meats, but also ideal served as an aperitif.
Roqueterre Carignan vieilles vignes - 100% Carignan, a grape variety that if well managed can produce wines with characteristics of dark and black fruits, pepper, liquorice, and spicy and savoury accents is put to use here in this old vine Cargignan.
Masseria Borgo dei Trulli Primitivo - This rich Italian red is a bit like walking into your most-loved cafe. Not a greasey spoon, nor a super trendy one - nothing wrong with them but that FAVOURITE place! Aromas of exotic spices, vanilla, coconut and dried fruits. (They serve a healthy breakfast here!). Followed by rich blackcurrant, chocolate cake and exotic spice flavours. With, of course, fresh coffee on the finish!
Le Serin Aude Rouge - A delicious blend, predominately Grenache and Syrah. Le Serin Aude Rouge has gentle berry fruits filling the nose leading to a wine that is medium-bodied with a juicy, red berry palate, black plum fruit hints and a good finish.
