Winemaker's Christmas - 12 Bottle
WAS €247.90 - NOW €217.00
We put our heads together and picked six of our favourite wines that speak for the winemakers outside of France. There is an outstanding Spanish pair from Guerinda and Olivares, a sensational German Weissburgunder, a top table Italian duo, and a show-stopping Portuguese red. With all these marvellous wines to enjoy, it will be like sharing a Christmas meal with the winemakers themselves.
2 x Guerinda La Blanca 2018
Chardonnay - 14%
Navarra - Spain
"This stuff is revolutionary and utterly gorgeous. The fruit is as clean and as clear as a whistle. A revelation."
Tom Doorley, The Mail on Sunday
2 x Castellari Bergaglio Salluvii 2018
Cortese - 12%
Gavi DOCG - Italy
"More body than most Gavi. An attractive nose with the lime zest and pear leads to a satisfyingly orange-flavoured palate with a clean finish." Martin Moran (MW), The Sunday Times
2 x Bender 2018
Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) - 12.5%
Mosel QBA - Germany
“Weissburgunder is the German name for Pinot Blanc. Aromas of crisp green apple with a touch of white peach, cleanly made with textured fresh apple and stone fruit flavours and a crisp finish.” Leslie Williams, The Irish Examiner
2 x Cosimo Maria Masini Sincero 2017
Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc - 13.5%
Toscana Rosso IGT - Italy
Violet and rose aromas spring from the glass of ‘Sincero’, followed by luscious ripe cherries, fresh acidity and mild tannins. Beautiful biodynamic Super Tuscan!
2 x Olivares Crianza 2016
Monastrell - 15%
Jumilla DO, Jumilla - Spain
"Intense black olives with juicy blackberry fruit and a light cedary oak note. Good length."
Martin Moran (MW), The Sunday Times
2 x Quinta do Crasto Reserva Old Vines 2016
Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca,
Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz - 14.5%
Douro DOC - Portugal
"Crasto is one of the Douro's leading names, farming quality fruit from two large estates. This bold bottling is rightly renowned… brooding and dark berried." Decanter Magazine
