Here is another selection of reds to see you through the second half of this summer.
The Coteaux Bourguignons is an all encompassing appellation for red and white burgundy and the Lettre d'Eloise below is a great example of the fruity flavour profile with mild tannins that is meant to be drunk young. This makes the 2018 vintage an ideal summer red, which takes kindly to being served slightly chilled too. In the hands of a fine producer like Bertrand Amboise, this entry level burgundy is sensational value.
South Africa's signature grape, Pinotage, can offer excellent all-rounders like this example from Ashbourne featured below. The richness and depth of the Pinotage is freshened by the lightness and brightness of the Cinsault. Combined, they provide the sort of vibrant and juicy red that is great to have at hand over the summer and autumn.
And finally, a classy red from Tuscany. The stony soils in this part of Maremma are well suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, which forms the basis of Fertuna's Lodai. A few years of bottle age has given the wine some really appealing complexity and character.
All three wines are in stock and available for delivery.
Offered per case of 6 x 75cl and prices include VAT. Usual delivery terms apply. Subject to availability.
