Society Reds Case
2020 was a warm year producing a full and soft malbec. 8% cabernet sauvignon lends some backbone. Ideal with an Argentine speciality, barbecued steak.
Bold, generous and full-bodied Australian shiraz, which is bursting with flavours of black cherry, blueberry and blackberries. Made especially for us by multi-award-winning winemaker Paul Hotker of Bleasdale Vineyards.
A 2021 Wine Champion. As buyer Matthew Horsley put it, ‘the standard of Beaujolais this year was amazing’, and this exciting taste of the 2020 vintage showed why it’s a great opportunity to get acquainted or reacquainted with the wines. After two fuller-bodied vintages, the freshness of this well-balanced, cherry-fruited favourite certainly perked up the tastebuds.
A classic California zinfandel, with cherry cola on the nose, fresh strawberry and tart red cherries coming through on the full soft palate and a hint of vanilla on the finish. An International Wine Challenge bronze medal winner 2021.
Soft and generously fruity carmenère from the Rapel Valley in Chile. Lush, succulent and enveloping. Made for us by Concha y Toro's superb winemakers Ignacio Recabarren and Lorena Mora.
The fruit of over 25 years’ collaboration with the Sichel family, and especially ripe and appealing in 2019, this fruity merlot-based claret offers pure pleasure in a glass for Bordeaux lovers at a keen price.
A pinot from the Languedoc to delight the senses: fresh, round and fruity with a hint of cherry and plenty of charm. Best drunk a little cool.
The 2019 edition of this syrah comes from the northern Rhône and from both banks of the river but with a sizeable proportion coming from Brézème, a micro-region a few miles to the south of Crozes-Hermitage. Huge colour in this very ripe vintage and gorgeous blueberry fruit.
Smooth, generous and fragrant red from Sicily's nero d'Avola grape. This Italian red has been extremely popular since we introduced it, because it hits the spot and is great value. An International Wine Challenge and Decanter World Wine Awards bronze medal winner in 2021.
Vibrant in colour, with crunchy red-fruit flavour and a touch of pepper, this inexpensive red really over-delivers on flavour. It comes from old monastrell vines in Jumilla, a small region near Alicante on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, a hotbed for delicious affordable red where there is plenty of sunshine to go round.
Our own-label blaufränkisch from Austria is a wine of very fresh acidity and light body, redcurrant fruit and a hint of tangy fresh blackberries.
Made for us again by the Boekenhoutskloof team, from oak-matured Stellenbosch cabernet sauvignon refreshed by a little Swartland cinsaut, this recalls a traditional Cape style but is made in a more forward style, with juicy berry fruit. A Decanter World Wine Awards bronze medal winner 2021 and commended at the International Wine Challenge in 2021.
