From southern Italy, the Rhone Valley and Mendoza, we're delighted to offer this fabulous mixed case of premium reds. Each case includes two bottles of the following wines...
Juan Benegas Malbec
All of the wines in the family range from Benegas are named for Federico Benegas-Lynch’s children – Clara Chardonnay, Carmela Rosé, Luna Cabernet and this, a fantastic, compact little Malbec called Juan! The nose delivers fresh red fruit notes, along with some light floral character and a hint of spice. The palate is juicy and fruit forward with smooth, rounded tannins.
Boutinot ‘Les Coteaux Schisteux’, Séguret Côtes du Rhône Villages
Séguret is one of 22 villages in the southern Rhône which is allowed to append its name to the Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation. Wines from these villages have been identified as higher quality wines which are more expressive of the region.
This is an impressive, classic Séguret - about as good as Côtes du Rhône Villages gets! Explosive, plush and opulent, and layered with suggestions of exotic spices, cracked black pepper and vanilla. The tannins are ripe and the finish is long.
Torri d'Oro Primitivo di Manduria
From the sun drenched vineyards in southern Italy, Primitivo (also known as Zinfandel), thrives in the warm, Mediterranean climate. The grapes ripen alongside cooling sea breezes, bringing balance and complexity.
On the nose, the Torri d'Oro has a complex bouquet of spices and ripe fruits scents. The palate is fruit forward and full bodied with good structure and a soft sweetness. The tannins are gentle and the finish is long.
