New World Wonders - 12 Bottle Case
**PRICE INCLUDES FREE DELIVERY**
There’s something to be said for New World wines. Yes, Wines Direct started with importing some old-world classics but just take a look at some of the countries in our New World Wonders Case. New Zealand is one of the world’s smallest wine-producing countries but it’s an absolute superpower when it comes to quality. Argentinian Malbec is famous worldwide and the Aussies have made a name for themselves by tearing up the rule book and challenging the views of the wine elites of Europe. The sun is shining here for the moment so we’ll be enjoying a glass of the Torrontes with dinner tonight. The reds might be needed at the weekend when the weather turns! Enjoy
Gareth & Gavin
2x Tahbilk - Yarra Valley, Central Victoria, Australia
Rich and concentrated aromas of blackberry, eucalypt and spice beguile you to a full bodied palate of equal depth and complexity with an abundance of generous fruit flavours and hints of capsicum and tobacco.
2x Alkoomi Black Label – Frankland River, Australia
A Classic Rhone Valley blend reimagined in the celebrated Alkoomi vineyard, South West Australia - the Viognier gives an aromatic lift to the spicy red grape Shiraz. These spicy characters are backed by good French oak. Perfumed aromas of plums and blackberries with spicy oak notes. The palate shows rich plum and blackberries.
2x BenMarco Malbec – Mendoza, Argentina
A deep, dark classic Malbec bursting with black cherry and blackberry flavours alongside subtle traces of cocoa. Aromas of new leather and violets tempt you to delve deeper.
From Susana Balbo's son José, with grapes grown exclusively high up in the Uco Valley, where healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, creating flavourful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity. Ageing in one-year-old French oak for 11 months, with extended lees contact, gives richness and complexity. Organic methods.
2x Crios Torrontes – Valle de Cafayate, Argentina
Ripe and refreshing with intense flavours of citrus and green apple with some tropical notes of lychee and honeysuckle. With no oak ageing, this is an adventurous white wine alternative for fans of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio from Argentina.
2x Coriole Fiano – McLaren Vale, Australia
Australia’s first Fiano. The Lloyd’s have always had an affinity for Italy, including referring to their winery as “le cantina”. The Fiano grape comes from Campania, making it perfect for Maclaren Vale (the Mediterranean of Australia). Harvested in February, 15% is fermented in old Hogshead French oak barrels. This wine is very versatile with nectarine and baked apple, a balance of great natural acidity, soft, creamy texture and an array of citrus characters.
2x Paddy Borthwick Riesling – Wairarapa, New Zealand
This white wine has an enticing aroma of ginger with that classic, quirky smell of rubber that mark it as Riesling. It's perfectly dry with hints of apricots and orchard-fresh apples on the long, lingering finish. A different take on Riesling from New Zealand.
Wine; it’s not just another drink. It’s about people. It’s about places. It’s a melting pot of history and culture. And most of all, it’s about pleasure.
