The Society’s Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo 2020
Unmistakeably cabernet, this well-priced Chilean has the variety’s hallmark cassis and eucalyptus aromas followed by a ripe, plush palate of dark-berry fruit and sandalwood. A Wine Champion in 2022.
The Society's Claret 2020
This friendly and fresh-tasting claret is one of The Wine Society's most consistently popular wines. Supplied for over a quarter of a century by the family-owned Maison Sichel, the bespoke blend varies from vintage to vintage, but merlot takes the lead role, and the wine is made without any oak to avoid masking its bright red and black-fruit flavours. This is made to be drunk on its own or with a wide variety of dishes. The stylish new label features three Greek muses, inspired by those that adorn one of the city’s great landmarks, the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux opera house. Please note: We've taken the step to remove the capsule (the covering on the top of the bottle) from this wine, as part of our sustainability strategy. This will have no adverse effect on the quality of the wine but reduces waste. The wine is also bottled in a light-weight glass bottle (420g or less) that reduces our carbon emissions, as it requires less materials to produce and less energy to transport.
The Society’s Argentine Malbec 2021
An intensely fruity malbec with tempting aromas of dark berries, plums and violets, leading to a palate of spicy fruit. Rich, round and ripe, this is lovely by the glass as well as being the perfect partner for a steak or Sunday roast.
The Society's Australian Shiraz 2020
Aside from being good people, Bleasdale also make wines that consistently overperform, even in more challenging vintages. This is a prime example. It's wonderfully vibrant, bold, generous and fruity, with flavours of black cherry, blueberry and blackberry.
The Society's Barbera d'Asti Superiore 2020
This barbera is from the beautiful Cascinone vineyard in Piedmont, northern Italy. Bursting with ripe juicy red fruit, this medium-bodied red from the warmer 2020 vintage has had time in large old oak casks, softening the tannins.
The Society's Rioja Crianza 2018
A smooth, fleshy and oaky Rioja, made in the traditional style from tempranillo aged in American and French oak. Round,juicy and mellow with the lovely leathery fruit aromas that are so typical of the classic style, produced for us by Bodega Palacios at Laguardia, a spectacular fortified village, in the heart of Rioja Alavesa.
The Society's Portuguese Red, Península de Setúbal 2021
From family-owned Casa Ermelinda Freitas, and the sandy soils of Setúbal, south-east of Lisbon, this friendly Portuguese red combines local grape castelão, which is all juicy red fruits, with a little alicante bouschet which brings darker black fruit and fleshiness.
The Society's French Grenache, Côtes Catalanes 2020
Softness is the key word here. This is mostly from ripe grenache grapes from the Roussillon close to the Spanish border with France, and it is a perfect easy-drinking red with a whiff of strawberry that can be enjoyed cellar cool.
The Society's French Syrah 2021
This is a northern Rhône syrah, with elements from both banks including an element from Brézème, a micro-region a few miles to the south of Crozes-Hermitage. It offers plenty of colour and fresh-tasting blueberry fruit with a touch of spice.
The Society's Côtes-du-Rhône 2021
Ripe, fruity grenache-syrah blend from an outstanding producer in Vinsobres. The colour has depth and the nose is beautifully marked by raspberry and redcurrant fruit. There is nothing heavy here, just loads of vibrant fruit.
The Society's California Old-Vine Zinfandel 2021
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.
The Society's French Pinot Noir 2021
A pinot to delight the senses: fresh, round and fruity with a hint of cherry and plenty of charm, and delicious drunk a little cool.
