Firma K2T víno dováží vína již od roku 2006 a nám se líbí, že se řídí filosofií: “Pití vína není luxus, ale součástí každodenní kultury”, která je nám hodně blízká.
Simonsig Carbernet / Shiraz
Deep… There is no hiding the 14% behind this dark red full of current and black berry. The fruits are young and fresh, but not so mature to offer a long finish. Think burger and chips with lots of katsup and Tobasco ;-)
This is the flagship of South African red wines. Rich and smooth, with bark berry tones and a hint of smoke or earth. Refined enough to drink on its own, or with a fine slab or protein on the grill. You decide.
Duca di Saragnano
Primitivo seems to find its way into quite a few of of boxes of late. This blend of Primitivo and Anglianico is every bit as heavy and full as the varietals that you know, but has a finish that is less sweet and a bit more earthy and bitter, i.e. very sensible !
Simonsig Carbernet / Merlot
Welcome back to some tannins ! Berries and pepper come out front on this and I suggest that you decant to round off the edges before diving in. Serve with strong meats.

I admit, I tried this wine just because of its name. But WOW, a Wagram Veltlin that will not be forgot. Green apples and pears with a slightly elevated sugar content. Full, long and utterly delicious.
A classic French chardonnay with a touch of oak. Add a bit of honey and you have a perfect wine for salmon or a Caesar salad. Keep it simple and you will be pleased.
Serve this wine ice cold for best results. A bit higher in acidity but still very subtle. The finish will bring something of a oily, gooseberry flavour that is a bit unusual, but very nice all the same.
Simonsig Chenin Blanc
Light and bright like the sky above the land. This is a wine of lite minerals and lots and lots of apples on top of a very clean citrus base. A delicate wine to be served on warm days and drunk outside.
This is a variety that we have not seen for a while. Look for earthy tones, green apple and something that tastes like bread in this semi dry wine. Lively in the mouth with the sugar and yeast still bubbling away. It has a long finish and is ideal for spicy food.
This is a medium bodied merlot that is ready to go with anything and everything. An ideal red to open in the afternoon while one prepares the Christmas dinner an nibbles on all the bits in the kitchen. Salami, cheese, Merlot… A perfect holiday lunch!
Classic Bordeaux blend at its best. This is a medium bodied red full of tannin that will go great with roasted meat. This wine is best to decant or open 2 hours before drinking to take off the edge. A lovely dinner wine full of black current and dark musty things like smoke, tobacco and leather.
Terras d’el Rei
Sometimes you just want a glass of red and don't want to pull the cork on something "special". Finding a reasonable table wine that tasted good and won't split your head open the next day isn't easy, but this cuvee fits the bill. Better than good enough, a solid OK.
Spiky, smoky and black black black berries. I find Zweigelts to be a bit mysterious in their taste. Sometimes spicy, sometimes fruity, sometimes very light. This one has a very smooth finish making it good for a Zweigelt novice. Indeed this is red wine from Austria, so give it a chance.
Touriga Nacional Carmin
Dark ruby red with hints of vanilla and cedar, this is a grape indigenous to Portugal. Sometimes a bit spicy, the quality of this wine comes through in a smooth fruity flavor. Mix with salami or other spicy meats.
Luc Pirlet Malbec
Indeed it has been a long time since we had a dark, full blooded Malbec in our mix. Deep and dark not just in color but in taste, look for soft earthy and caramel tones mixed with berries. A full bodied wine crying for a steak or other meat on the grill. This is BBQ time!
Manz Stieg Terasse Kabinet Riesling
A classic Riesling that can hold up to any competition. A full bodied wine with a mix of mineralogy and acidity. Look for subtle tones of apricot (and less sublet tones of rocks).
This is a elegant dry wine with a pronounced mineral flavor and acidity. Take a sip and leave in your mouth and you will find those bubbling minerals on your tongue! Light summer foods recommended.
Luc Pirlet Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blancs with their light yellow-green color are the trendy white wine at the moment. Look for a mix of citrus and current with a hint of nuts. A delicate wine made for summer salads and vegetables.
Kellner Gruner Veltliner
A clear and light straw color can be found in this is this simple "Veltliner". You will find a nice fresh acidity of citrus fruits making it perfect for a schnitzel, mashed potatoes or a salad!

Dark and mysterious best describes this mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Malbec. Jet black in color, the flavor is a mix of berries and earth. Think of the smells of the forest in the fall and you will be getting close. Serious flavor needs serious meat. Steak and stew here.
Malbec Varietal Baudron
What I liked about this wine was it was so "accessible". Not that you can buy it everywhere, but the flavors and finish were so easy to drink. I got the fruity Malbec flavor but with a shorter tail end. Absolutely enjoyable for any occasion.
Baudron San Jose Merlot
If this wine looks familiar, you are thinking about the Syrah we had from the same winery. The Merlot offers a bit more acidity and tannin, but with the same great value for money proposition as the other. Easy, not complicated and perfect for a glass with dinner any Tuesday night.
Torrontes is a native Argentinean variety known for peach and apricots on the nose, and a balanced fruit and citrus flavor. Close your eyes for the first smell and you will also have a light floral scent. Good for white fish and hard white cheese.
Of all of the Sauvignons in our box, this one is without question the most balanced. Fresh fruit and acidity from grapefruits, the taste is very subtle with a great mineral finish. Perfect for fish on the grill or goat cheese.
Tamaya Vina Casa Sauvignon Blanc
Green and rocky. Although it sounds strange, these are the best words to describe this grape. Green for the grassy color and flavor, rocky for the minerals that are mixed in. Without question, the best grape for oysters and cold fish. Mnam.
Monsaraz Alicante Bouschet
Although we did wines from Portugal many times in the past, we have yet to have a Alicante Bouschet varietal. This one is IT!. Elegant mix of dark fruit, coffee, chocolate in a red so smooth, you won't be able to put it down. Warning - one bottle is NEVER enough.
Luc Prilet Cabernet Sauvignon Les Barriques
Dark, full and mature would best describe this beauty. Look for hints of vanilla from the oak, and a dark musty flavor of leather in this complex wine. For those looking for a "sure Thing" red, look no further. Delicious.
Luc Prilet Merlot
Ripe with a good helping of tannin, that's what I love about Merlot. Pair this with meat that has been on the grill with a little bit of fat and gristle and you will not be disappointed. A pork chops perfect date :-)
Baudron San Jose Syrah
A smoother, easy to drink table wine will be hard to find. I was impressed with the light balanced flavor of fruit and pepper. Think white meat or soup rather than heavier meats.
Manz Riesling Kabinett
Riesling was once known as the king of white wines. Not sure if that is still the case, but this dry, light white with a hint of strawberry is very, very good. Indeed the "President" picked up an extra case :-)
Luc Prilet Cinsault Syrah rose
It has been a very long time since we dropped a rose in the box. This fresh and elegant cuveé was worth the wait. What made this so attractive for me was the lack of Grenache in the blend, leaving it just as fruity, but much more subtle in flavor. Great for sipping any time, anywhere.
Luc Prilet Chardonnay
A fresh mix of peach and nuts with none of the oak to get in the way. A typical French presentation offering a very full flavor without a strong mineral presence typical of chardonnay's from Burgundy.
Kellner Gruner Veltiner
I am sure I am not alone saying that Gruner Veltliner is the new "Black". It's popularity grows every year and Austria is the undisputed champion. The crisp and mineral flavor many describe as tasting "Green". Look for a little fizz at the end.
