  • Excelsior Merlot South Africa

    Like its white cousin, this is a great party wine and goes well with most foods or just on its own. Rich, juicy Merlot from a favourite Estate of ours. Much recommended by Real Wine Co customers.  45% of the blend was aged in french and american oak barrels for six months. The wine is exceptionally concentrated and fruity.

    Laurent Miquel Père et Fils Syrah/Grenache

    70% Syrah and 30% Grenche – classic! I really love this easy, yet complex red. Hints of soft spices and licorice, very gluggable!

  • Casabel Portuguese Red

    Lovely soft red with vibrant cherry-like fruit. A great example of  just how much fun Portuguese wines can be.

    This is a soft, yet well-structured, unoaked red from the Lisbon Region. If the Cerejeiras is defined by easy fruit, this has a bit more oomph, so will take richer food. It has lovely clean fruit character.

  • Les Darons by Jeff Carrel

    Les Darons by Jeff Carrel

    Big, soft red, yet good acidity makes this a great food wine as well as one to drink on its own. A great example of southern french red wine, bursting with peppery tannins and earthy fruit.

  • Anarkos Rosso di Puglia

    Anarkos Rosso di Puglia

    The label is attention-seeking, as is the bright red plastic cork (not my favourite closure, I must admit, but the wine insisted I buy it! The wine has attitude and is a provocative one, railing against the plight of the region (see their website). The region reminds me of the Languedoc in France – loads of rubbish wines but increasing numbers of fanatics making really top wines as they should be made. This was one of my favourite winery visits af the last few years. The wine is made from a blend of the local varieties Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia Nera and should be consumed in conspiratorial bars in the south of Italy with huge helpings of pasta.

    Previous vintages recommended; Recommended in The Daily Telegraph: “another one of Mark Hughes’ brilliant finds. Absolutely delicious blend of Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia. Lush and plush like velvet, also juicy, scented, intense, rich brimming with the smell of violets, deep purple plums and bitter cherries. Such a joy!
    Recommended by Oz Clarke as one of his 250 best wines of 2012: “an excellent example of how southern Italian reds are starting to express their own fabulous originality. It’s bulging with youth and it’s soft, yet tempered by a nice edgy bitterness.”

  • 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!

  • Domaine de Cray Touraine Rouge

    I went to the Wine Fair in Paris in February to hunt out a Loire Sauvignon Blanc. After much tasting found a firm favourite in Domaine de Cray. As luck would have it, they also produce this very classic Loire red made from 50% Gamay (as in Beaujolais), 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cot. It’s fresh, it’s light and combines hints of freshly mown grass from the Cabernet with the parma violets from the Gamay. A really super summer wine with great complexity.
