Junta Momentos Chilean Malbec Reserve
This Malbec is bursting with rich, deep berry fruit.
70% of the wine was aged for approximately six months in French oak barrels to help round out the wine and smooth out the tannins. Once the final blend was obtained, the wine was cold decanted and lightly filtered before bottling. Drink now to 2022Other Single Varietal RedRich & Fruity RedsChile2016750 ml13-13.5%
Sobroso Portuguese White Herdade do Sobroso “Barrique Select”
Creamy, soft and clean. This wine was aged in new oak barrels for a bare three months and then undewent a similar period “sur lie”. The result is rather Burgundian and goes into my “creamy whites” category.
The Herdade do Sobroso is on the banks of the Guadiana River which was known in roman times as “Flumen Anas” – River of Ducks. Guess why…..yes, because there are loads of ducks here.White BlendsPortugal750 ml13-13.5%

Sanz Rueda 100% Verdejo
A shoe-in for our Twelve Wines of Christmas. Rueda has firmly established itself as one of the premium white wine regions of Spain with the white Verdejo grape as arguably its star attraction. This 100% Verdejo epitomises the style – it’s a young, dry, light, fresh fruity style with minerality and complexity.

Abbotts & Delaunay Corbieres
A blend of Grenache and Syrah which really showcases one of the Languedoc’s fine range of regional appellations. 40% of the handpicked grapes are aged in oak following fermentation. The result is a fat, structured red but it’s not “in your face” it’s really very nicely balanced. Like the Minervois but softer.

Villa des Anges Cabernet Reserve (Jeff again)
One of those wines which make you stop in your wine-tasting tracks. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has been aged for 14 months in tanks with oak staves (!) before bottling. It’s enough to make you wonder whether or not you want to buy expensive claret again!Cabernet SauvignonSoft & Smooth RedsFrance2016750 ml13-13.5%
Verus Furmint, Slovenia
Each year the wonderful people at Verus produce consistently dazzling, pure, clean, fruity, mouthwatering wines.

Verus Pinot Gris, Slovenia
Yet another of that triumverate’s great wines. If you thought all Pinot Grigio was thin cheap and Italian, think again! This is rich, with pure, clean fruit and a lovely vibrant zestiness. Highly recommended.
Pinot Gris has a slightly pinkish flesh which can go darker in very hot years. 2016 was just one such year and you will notice a slightly pink hue to the wine. More industrial producers might “intervene” to strip the colour out, but at Verus they rightly celebrate the variations of the vintages!

Verus Riesling, Slovenia
Previous vintages much recommended. Such as;
The Guardian’s Fiona Beckett’s Best Bottles to take on a picnic;
“I love the fragrant, floral Verus Riesling from Slovenia – that’s one for sipping while you dabble your feet in a stream. It’s one of the excellent range of the same producer’s aromatic wines imported by The Real Wine Company.”
This particular varietal is a favourite of mine. Gets even better with a year or two bottle age.
