£106.90 £91.00 Inc. Vat



Chilly Sunday afternoons are made of these. Find an armchair next to an open fire and let our Essential 6 marvels wrap you in a mellow embrace. We’ve two Malbecs from very different climes. A South African Shiraz and a Cape blend full of refinement and generosity. Then a pair of fruity full-bodied Americans. Bliss…




 



  • 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!”


  • 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!”

  • 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!”


  • Columbia Winery Merlot Washington State

    “Packed with plums and autumnal walk in the forest smells. A wine that should have 'for Sunday roast' as an instruction on the label. It leaves you with Christmas spice, black pepper and baked fruits once it slips down. Comfort wine if there ever was one.”


  • Ghost Pines Zinfandel

    “Creepy name but not creepy wine. You can make really serious red from Zinfandel and taadaa, here is one! Our noses and mouths picked up a juicy dark fruit explosion, some prune in the back, cola cubes, mocha and some reassuring grip to tie it all together. Ace!”
