Small Wonders Reds
A new wine from Lemelson in Oregon, made to capture the fruit and vibrancy of the vintage, using only older oak barrels for the ageing. This has lovely strawberry and summer-fruit aromas, a soft velvety style and a refreshing finish. Delicious and a perfect partner to a rack of lamb or mushroom dishes.
Deep-purple, intense and youthful Australian carignan that is full of energy. The nose is generous and brooding, with notes of iron and juicy purple fruit while the the palate is packed with ripe blackcurrant, plum, blueberry and spice notes, with full grippy tannins and remarkable freshness. There is baked plum, blackcurrant crumble and cocoa on the finish.
This wine comes from younger vines on three of the estate's Barolo vineyards in La Morra, so offers a great entry point to this classic Italian fine wine. With its grippy tannins, and rose, sweet cherry and raspberry flavours, this red comes alive with food. Long-braised veal shin, the famous osso bucco of Piedmont, is a fine and famous match for a nebbiolo like this.
From a superb vineyard with some very old vines, bordering Moulin-à-Vent in Beaujolais. The wine has the scented elegance of Fleurie and the richness and body of a Moulin-à-Vent, and is polished and very classy.
From 70 to 100-year-old vines from dramatic vineyards at 1,200 metres altitude in the south of the Calatayud DO in northern Spain, this serious garnacha combines energy with intensity, floral red fruit and spice. It is made by a Scot and Master of Wine, Norrel Robertson, specialist in garnacha, and in tiny quantities due to the low yields.
A five-varietal Portuguese blend based on 40% alicante bouschet which here contributes depth of colour, silky texture and hints of dark chocolate to the otherwise complex floral aromas with notes of woody herbs. A beauty of a maiden vintage.
