El Circo Garnacha 2018 (1x75cl)

El Circo means 'the circus', and each of the varieties in this range is represented by a different circus performer. The wines are made by the co-operative located in DO Cariñena. A new, modern winery was built in 2002. Winemaker Marcelo Morales Calderon is Chilean, having previously worked for Carmen and Veramonte among others. He came for the 2000 vintage and stayed, as he was excited both by the quality of the fruit and the high standard of the facilities at his disposal.

The soil, where the short bush vines for this Garnacha are grown, is poor. The vines are planted on unirrigated land. The grapes ripen slowly, allowing their full potential to come through.

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, with regular pump overs. Maceration took place for 10 to 15 days with natural malolactic fermentation.

Ruby red with purple hues, this Garnacha has intense aromas of ripe red fruit such as strawberries and cherries followed by a touch of spice. On the palate, it has smooth, firm tannins with a racy acidity and a very fruity finish.

Felix Solis Avantis Heredad de Altillo Rioja 2018 (1x75cl)

Spain’s most internationally famous wine region is renowned for creating top quality wines with exceptional ageing ability. It lies in northern Spain, by the side of the River Ebro from which the region’s name derived. Elegance and poise is the hallmark of the wines shaped in this ancient region. The variety of its soils, together with the combination of modern and traditional growing practices allow winemakers to produce a wide range of wines that exhibit different personalities, always within the framework that their long-established Qualified Denominación de Origen demands from them.

The grapes are harvested at just the right moment. A cold maceration process for 48 to 72 hours extracts their skin colour and fruity aromas. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature between 21 and 23 ºC) for 8 to 10 days.

100% Tempranillo.

Deep cherry red colour with touches of violet. Aromas of red fruits, strawberries and flowers that mirror perfectly on its palate. Smooth and fresh fruit on the palate. Long and pleasant finish.

Les Celliers De Meknes Guerrouane Rouge Les Trois Domaines 2016 (1x75cl)

Les Celliers de Meknes was founded in 1963 by Brahim Zniber, an influential figure in the revival of Morocco's wine industry. Les Celliers covers nearly 2000 hectares of vineyards divided among four of Morocco's most prestigious designations 2 AOGs Guerrouane & B'ni Mtir and 1 AOC Les Coteaux de L'Atlas with modern winemaking facilities. The Zniber family, vine growers for more than half a century, are pioneers of modern wines in Morocco. Les Celliers de Meknès is a private company responsible for about 20% of Morocco’s wine production.

The finest terroir in Morocco is to be found in the Meknès region, midway between the peaks of the Middle Atlas and the Atlantic coast. This location, where the Beni M'Tir AOG (Appellation d'Origine Garantie) is located, enjoys a relatively balanced climate, sheltered from both the Sahara and the ocean. Even here, August temperatures regularly climb towards 40°C (104°F), and global warming is thought to be responsible for the increasing prevalence of drought in the area.

The climate of the Middle Atlas in the foothills on which their estates are situated, the elevation ranging from 580 to 700 meters, the moderate rainfall and generous sunshine all provide the vineyards with an exceptional site unrivalled in Morocco.

Les Mougeottes Pinot Noir IGP Pays d'Oc 2018 (1x75cl)

The Les Mougeottes wines are from the region to the east of Carcassonne. Ripe grapes are essential for a good Pinot Noir. The full aromatic potential has already been developed, but the sugar content should be relatively low in order to pre-serve the variety's elegant style. For that, a part of the crop is harvested quite early and ferments at low temperature exalting fruity aromas. The other part, fully ripe, under-goes a traditional, long maceration. About one third ages in French oak barrels for many months, adding complexity to the wine.

100% Pinot Noir.

This wine has a clean and precise bouquet with black cherries and raspberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit and a silky long finish.

ABV = 13.0%.

Palladino Rosso Riserva, DOC Biferno 2012 - August 2017 Decanter review

Molise is located in the southern part of Central Italy. Only 2% of its production is graded as DOC. Hillside vineyards with excellent exposure, morainic and calcareous soils together with a combination of maritime and continental climate provide a favorable terroir for the cultivation of vines. The 15 to 25 year old vines are trained in the Sylvoz and Spur Cordon fashion, with 2800 to 3300 vines planted per hectare, yields are around 110 hl/ha. Grapes were hand and machine harvested in late September.

Made from equal thirds of Aglianico, Montepulciano and Trebbiano. Traditional vinification with 10-12 days of maceration at a controlled temperature of 25°-26°C. The wine is aged for 18 months in large oak barrels, and the for 18 months in stainless steel tanks.

Purply red colour that will develop to garnet with age. The bouquet is complex and intense with hints of blackberry jam. On the palate the wine is velvety and harmonious with pleasant, firm tannins.

The wine pairs well with roast meats, game, pheasant or salami. Serve at 18-20° (ie really quite warm!)

ABV = 13.0%.
