Essential 12 -Winter Reds

£160.00 Inc. Vat

What better way to while away those lazy winter weekend afternoons than with a lovely, full-bodied glass of red? This delightful dozen offers a sumptuous selection of well-priced wines to warm the cockles. Sit back and enjoy the journey from Argentina to Chile, South Africa to Spain, and then Portugal and France.


  • Malma Chacra La Papay Malbec

    “Smooth, velvety tannins and smoky spices are superbly paired with blueberries, cherries and floral flavours. This is class in a glass!”

  • Casas del Bosque Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva

    “Does what it says on the tin and really satisfies. You can't often beat Chile for value and this is a wonderful exponent of that. Blackcurrants, good acid and tannins ease you in. Like a very comfortable pair of well-priced trousers, you got from Asos, that look fly too.”

  • Cape Chamonix Rouge

    “Bordeaux comes to the Cape! but in a way rarely seen in that famous area of France. This already has some age and could probably do with a bit more, but make no mistake, this is a wine for today, as well as tomorrow. Juicy, meaty, fruity and with restrained tannin and oakiness, we absolutely love this. You will too!”

  • Odfjell Armador Cabernet Sauvignon

    “Bright, fruity, a little spicy and right on the money. A super well made lighter style of Cab Sav that anyone will enjoy. Moreish and utterly yummy.”

  • Jordan Wine Estate The Prospector

    “These guys have got South African Shiraz nailed. All the dark fruits with that characteristic peppery spice you expect. Super balanced and a little earthy. We've said it before, and we'll say it again. Quality.”

  • Quinta da Mariposa Tinto

    “All the things in all the right places. A little like eating black forest gateau in a geranium bush. But there are cloves, refreshing acid and those flavours linger for an epic amount of time. A wine to doff your hat to.”

  • Clos siguier Vieilles Vignes "Les Camille" Malbec

    “An elegant and refined Malbec, made from very high quality, old vine, grapes. Intense blueberry, damson and leather flavours come together with an alluring dusty texture and fresh acidity. Further to this, it's crunchy, floral and a little meaty too. A complete winner!”

  • Manyol Crianza

    “Sultry and smokey with vanilla, spice and dark berry fruit, this low intervention wine is a barbequed dishes' best friend. Nicely refreshing, but still rich and deep. A go-to wine for lazy afternoons spent avoiding the smoke plumes from the small inferno lit by your pyromaniac mate, acting as 'chef' for the day.”

  • Mary Taylor / Jean Marc Barthez Bordeaux Rouge

  • Quinta da Pedra Alta Prova No. 2 Tinto

    “We are very lucky to have found these guys. There's little doubt that they are making some of the best wines in Portugal and outside it too. There's not much of this wine so be quick! Earthy and mysterious, deep and rich, dark-fruited and smoky, chocolatey and smooth. Epic!”

  • Domingo Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon

    “Perfectly ripe blackcurrant, that old fireplace in a country pub smell with herbs, soy and just split logs. A smooth sipper that warrants being drunk in an old comfortable chair with a hearty dinner on the way.”

  • Jordan Wine Estate Long Fuse

    “If you want a good Cab Sav, look no further. Elegant, structured, deep, rich, textured and with proper staying power, you cannot fault this wine. Quality.”
