WE CAN'T BELIEVE IT IS ALREADY THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER! BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, CHRISTMAS IS HERE. WE HAVE CURATED FOUR BOTTLES OF DELICIOUS WINES TO GET YOU SORTED IN CASE ANOTHER LOCKDOWN HAPPENS (WE HOPE NOT!).
50 Reasons by Neleman (Spain) (Level of overall body, acidity, profile and strength - 4/5)
Besides an impressive design, the wine itself is also very impressive. This Sauvignon Blanc from Valencia is a wonderfully pure, juicy, dry white wine with a fresh and dusty aroma and fresh acidity. Burnished gold with green highlights in the glass. It has a nose of preserved lemon, lime flesh and white peach over a strong slate minerality. On the palate the wine is crisp, dry and bracing with a fine citrus flavor and an intriguing minerality that makes you want to sip it again and again. Full and round, a delicious wine for everyday use. For example as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to salads.
Chardonnay Muscat by Neleman (Spain) (Level of overall body, acidity, profile and strength - 4/5)
Cuvee X by Chateau Massereau (France) (Level of overall body, acidity, profile and strength - 4/5)
Fresh and fruity with notes of raspberry and hay, this wine has a smooth palate with a wonderfully balanced tannic structure. An elegant medium bodied dry red that is incredibly flexible; you'll find it matches to a range of dishes and is perfect for a variety of occasions.
Generacion76 by Bodegas Tempore (Spain) (Level of overall body, acidity, profile and strength - 4/5)
Visually it presents an intense dark cherry colour with a brilliant violet rim. The fruit immediately takes over with lively berry-like aromas of strawberries and blackberries. If shaken, it continues to gently grow in complexity with a mineral, fruity bouquet that throws you straight back to the vineyards. Everything so perfectly blended in a young wine with unexpected maturity.
In taste, it’s rich in fruity flavours of red berries in the optimum ripeness. It has a seductive velvety entrance in the mouth that gives way to a great combination of lush fruits and wood in perfect harmony. It has an expressive round taste that leaves a pleasant and exciting aftertaste.
