This high-quality Bordeaux blend from Bosca unleashes the blackberry, plum, sweet cherry, raspberry, mint, vanilla, anise and toast across the senses. Full-bodied and layered with a grippy finale. Drink over the next 10 to 12 years.
Rich and fruity, bordering on overripe, with earth, spice and fresh herbs, slightly smoky with a mineral quality that keeps it from being overwhelming. A structured, well-constructed single vineyard wine from a vineyard first planted in 1932 and an impressive pedigree (winery created by Piero Incisa della Rocchetta) translate to the impressive price.
Cherry red in colour, this delicious Pinot has a spicy, earthy nose of rose petals and raspberry candy. Medium-bodied and deceptively dry, the flavours of sweet raspberry and pomegranate fill the mouth. A beautifully balanced wine with a lovely mouthfeel.
The Torrontés grape from Argentina is so fragrant you don’t know whether to drink it or slap it on as after-shave. It smells of orange blossom and cardamom, rather like a dry Muscat from Alsace. That intense aroma is matched by the flavour of a cantaloupe melon – it really is like drinking perfume that tastes deliciously dry.
This Argentine blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon has a generous nose of thick blackberry, wild raspberry, earth, tar and beautiful oak spice notes. The dark berries on the palate meld perfectly with the spice notes, bramble and liquorice through a smooth finish.
Here’s an affordable Malbec from Argentina that punches above its weight in the flavour department. Dense purple in colour, this easy-drinking Malbec offers a spicy plum nose with vanilla oak notes; it’s medium-bodied with mouth-filling sweet plum and blackberry flavours ending with mellow, ripe tannins.
