  • 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.

  • Rioja “Sin Crianza” Martinez Alesanco

    100% Tempranillo fruit bursting with character but not oak-aged. Just enjoy it. As Pedro (the producer) puts it; “lively, refreshing, bold, and unabashed”.

  • Abbotts & Delaunay Carignan

    Gold medal-winning traditional local varietal, old vines – Carignan from the south of France. Soft tannins, nice ‘n spicy. Long skin contact for deep colour, and over six months oak aging for complexity….rather a nice wine, really

  • Chateau d’Or et de Gueules “AB” (A Boire) Red Organic

    New vintage just in. Diane and Mathieu’s range of estate wines is now wholly organic. Fresh and fruity with good structure. Do I detect a whiff of strawberries?

  • Pietraluna Negroamaro del Salento

    From the same stable as Anarkos, but made from 100% Negroamaro grapes. This is, without doubt, the best vintage of this wine to date.

    It’s rich and full of spicey, chocolatey flavours. Maybe a hint of ginger. Going to be on our table this Easter, for sure.

    Fancy a red with bags of flavour but light on the old alcohol? Look no further.

  • Château Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux Reserve Merlot

    Gold Medals at  Brussels and Gilbert & Gaillard.

    The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed. Merlot dominated, soft but very well-structured, ripe fruit.

  • Château Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux “Intense” Merlot

    Gold Medals at Brussels, Lyon and Gilbert & Gaillard.

    The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed. However, it’s Merlot dominated but with a rare 30% Cabernet Franc. Rich and very well-structured fruit.

  • Casabel Lisboa 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.

  • Dolcetto delle Langhe La Fusina

    Another top find from a hunting mission at Vinitaly; having found my favourite Barolo, I then tasted all their other wines and no surprise they we all lovely! Another single vineyard beauty from the Abbona family. I have long enjoyed the Dolcetto grape variety for its cherry-like flavours and freshness, quite a contrast to Barolo. No lengthy aging, no oak aging just vibrant fruit but still with grip.

  • Passole Nero d’Avola/Merlot di Sicilia,

    This is a really successful blend of Nero d’Avola and Merlot bringing out the best of both varietals in a wine that is better than the sum of its two parts. The lovely rich but slightly light NdA bulked up a bit by rich and soft Merlot.  It undergoes a slight “Ripasso” treatment. “Da uve leggermente appassite” as they say. This gives it extra oomph. Good depth, nice and silky.

  • Kinisia Merlot/Nero d’Avola di Sicilia

    This is a really successful blend of Nero d’Avola and Merlot bringing out the best of both varietals in a wine that is better than the sum of its two parts. The lovely rich but slighly light NdA bulked up by rich and soft Merlot.  This differs from the Passole in that it is predominantly Merlot backed up by NdA rather than the other way round. Then it spends eight months in oak barrels giving it a lovely, spicey and elegant texture. I’m getting blackcurrants and lots of chocolate!
