Cos Frappato 2018 (750mL)
The colour is bright red, the nose ebullient with posies of violets, freesia and cherry-blossom. The palate is sweet and round, suggestive of raspberries and succulent cherries - the tannins barely evident.
Country of Origin
Cos Nero di Lupo (750mL)
This has remarkable finesse, with rich earthy-leathery fruit flavours balanced by flinty notes.
Familia Cecchin Organic Carignan Wine 2017 (750mL)
Organic Carignan from old vines fermented in large cement tanks. Earthy-meaty red with good freshness and a nice sprinkling of herbs.
Familia Cecchin Organic Malbec 2018 (750mL)
Made without the addition of sulphur and contrasts with the lavish, extractive, chocolate-cakey numbers that most wineries seem to churn out. Here one notices the acidity of the grape along with savoury red fruits and liquorice.
Metic Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (750mL)
A lovely combination of blackcurrant flavours with a touch of spice, full bodied but with a balanced and smooth finish.
Thirst - Gamay (750mL)
Thirst are refreshing, lower alcohol, lower sulphur, naturally-made wines, with minimal intervention. Not stripped of any natural components and they are neither fined nor filtered and can show an amazing haze.
Grape: Gamay Shiraz/Syrah
Vina Ilusion Rioja (750mL)
A delicious, gulp-able expression of Rioja: full of mixed berries and red fruits it's juicy and delightful to drink.
