The Flavours of Italy, Spain and Portugal Explore Dozen Case
Bobal was traditionally used to add colour and velvety texture to blends but its wild, spicy personality and succulent fruit deserve a starring role. From high-altitude vineyards near Valencia in Spain, this is one for tender spring lamb.
Youthful blend of Douro grape varieties, with dark brambly fruit and a rich, ripe palate. Glides perfectly from main course to cheese.
An grape that is local to Alto Adige, this medium-bodied Italian red has an inky violets and black-fruit nose, bright acidity and well integrated tannins supporting the blackberry and savoury bresaola flavours that develop on the finish.
The marzemino grape is native to southern Trentino in the far north of Italy, thriving on the slopes of the Dolomite mountains. There are pomegranate, tea, and tart red fruit flavours on this well balanced medium-bodied and refreshing red. A black pepper note on the finish makes this even more intriguing.
Refined Bairrada from Niepoort's own property there, Quinta de Baixo, a delicious red, light in colour, beautifully fresh, with fine tannin structure, energy and delicate haunting perfume.
From an old property restored by winemaking giant Sogrape Vinhos and made from the traditional white grape arinto, whose life-affirming acidity carries the delicate green-apple and white floral perfume and flavour long on the palate.
Falanghina is one of Italy's many native grape varieties that we feel shouldn't be left under the radar! With tangy clementine and peach flavours, this is a lovely crisp, dry and expressive wine to add to your selection.
Albana is almost uniquely planted in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna, gaining DOCG status in 1987. Here picked a little later, the grapes have developed a full, creamy style, with intense peach and apricot flavours that last well on the dry, refreshing finish.
A beautifully precise expression of Bairrada's indigenous grapes, with flashes of lemon citrus lifting more delicate white flower perfume. Made by a young producer who was until recently employed by Portuguese star and member favourite Herdade de Esporão.
Top Spanish winemaker Tomàs Cusiné crafts this deeply coloured, powerful tempranillo-syrah blend from his vineyards in Catalunya. Brimming with blueberry fruit and chunky in texture, this is delicious.
An elegant, subtle Spanish white made from a mix of macabeu, albariño, chardonnay, sauvignon and riesling. Bright and refreshing with delightful flavours of apple and peach.
