The ideal mix of reds - perfect for cosy family evenings around the fire. Case of 6 consists of one of each wine:
Bodega Urbina Crianza 2012, Rioja, Spain
Bodega Urbina has a history that spans 150 years, with winemaking taking place as early as 1870 across four generations. This Crianza remains in American oak barrels for 12 months, then it is bottled and remains in the bottle for a minimum of 6 months before being released onto the market. Cherry-ruby colour, balanced, hints of blackcurrant and damson on the palate; good structure and persistence, with a touch of vanilla and mint from the period in oak.
Château Lamothe Gaillard, Bordeaux Supérieur 2020, Bordeaux, France
In pure respect for Bordeaux tradition, this wine is made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet
Sauvignon. A vibrant and alluring deep purple, aromas of ripe red and black fruit, full bodied, fleshy and full on the palate, with fine grained and silky tannin. A Bordeaux to enjoy over the next few years. AB (Agriculture Biologique) and Organic certified.
Invincible Number One 2020, Douro, Portugal
Enticing nose of dark fruit, cherry and light oak aromatics. The palate is layered with juicy red fruit and ripe cherries followed by a fine tannin structure. The finish is vibrant and lengthy with a subtle spice from the oak ageing. A field blend from 30+ year old vineyards: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz.
Altosur Malbec 2021, Mendoza, Argentina
This beauty is crafted from Malbec grapes grown at an altitude of 4,000 feet in the Andes. Aromas of intense ripe fruit: cherries, blackberries, blueberries and fresh plums, combined with spicy and floral hints. In the mouth the sweet and round tannins increase its fruit sensation and balance. Wine of good intensity, concentration and a long, supple aftertaste.

Scriani Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2019, Veneto, Italy

The nose and palate deliver red berries, cherries and plums in a beautifully poised, medium bodied style. A wonderful accompaniment to festive meats and cheeses.
Cline Cellars Lodi Zinfandel 2019, California, USA
