Autumn is definitely here and the leaves are starting to look very pretty on the trees as the nights start closing in. It must be time to start thinking about wooly jumpers, big coats and red wine.
Howard John Carignan 2014
Carignan is a grape that loves the sun, the hotter the better in fact, so Paarl in South Africa is perfect. This superb boutique wine truly is the "Big Daddy" as it is an homage to the winemaker's father and has been made with a real sense of integrity and honesty, no fining or additives have been used. This wine is elegant and packed with dark fruit flavour that lingers on the palate with a touch of savoury complexity on the finish.
A great wine which you might expect to pay well over twenty pounds for at one of our competitors, our price of just £15.99 is superb value. We are proud to say this is a unique parcel which Ake and Humphris have managed to discover for you.
Fantastic Fizz and Where to Find It
Cava may not be the coolest bottle to pop at a party, we know that everyone is all about the prosecco nowadays. That is exactly why we think it's time to revisit Spains most enduring Sparkling wine.
Mas Macia Gran Reserva Brut Nature is a fuller more generous style that the Cava you might remeber from the 90's. This has a crunchy apple skin freshness fleshed out by a creamy peachy mid palate and a toasty brioche note on the finish.
At £14.99 with some online retailers Ake & Humphris price is just £9.99. Making this a perfect start to any dinner party, and a whole lot more sophisticated than it has any right to be.
