Classic Bold Reds - Syrah, Malbec and Tempranillo
A case of bold, powerful red wines, worthy of meditation. The Italians have the phrase "vino da meditazione"; wines worth savouring, wines that work with food but are equally good just on their own, as the main event.
3 classic wines, 3 classic producers, 3 grapes to get to know.
2 x Tinto Negro Limestone Block Malbec Tunuyan, Uco Valley, Argentina 2016
A classic Malbec. Deep blue fruit flavours and minerality. A dollop of Cabernet Franc for added complexity and finesse.
2 x Cotes du Rhone 'L'Enclave', Syrah, Jean Luc Jamet, France 2017
A wild, earthy Syrah full of savory notes and wild dark fruits. So named because one of the two parcels of this cuvée is an enclave in the middle of the Côte-Rôtie. A fresh and joyful Syrah from one of the Northern Rhone's most celebrated producers, offering an exceptional quality-price-ratio.
2 x La Planta, Tempranillo, Arzuaga, Ribera Del Duero, Spain 2016
Plenty of fleshy body, concentrated dark fruits, robust structure and expressive chocolately vanilla for lovers of a classic Spanish red. Aged in French and American oak. Perfect fireside wine.
