This natural wine is described as a Mediterranean delicacy unique in its fresh northern soul. Youthful citrus flavor, pears and pepper. Don't let the light color fool you - it is packed with flavor.

  • Alcohol: 14,5%
  • Style: Full-bodied, rich red wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Price: 339 Kč

Mike's Tip

Everybody knows about Spanish wines, but how many know about wines from Priorat ? This area is the crown jewel of Catalan wine. Low production and very exclusive. These wines has an extreme cherry content, and medium acidity. I only discovered the region this year and have to say - I LOVE IT.

Baronello Rosso Toscana

  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Good Deal Awards
  • Price: 239 Kč

Mike's Tip

Decanter rated this wine with 90 points which means it is ready for anybody's table. A 50% base of Sangiovese, add in some Merlot and Cabernet, you have all the ingredients of a super Tuscan. One of my favorite regions, this is a treasure of cherry, currant and vanilla. Enjoy it (we did !)

La Enfermera

La-Enfermera

Wine description:

  • Country: Spain
  • Grape: Tempranillo

  • Style: Full-bodied, rich red wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Good Deal Awards
  • Price: 289 Kč

Mike's Tip

Tempranillo - big, bold, tannic and dry. Among the red fruit you will find leather and tobacco giving this wine its distinctive earthy flavor. Fruity and ready, this wine is ready for a pork steak or a roast chicken NOW. Get you bake on…

San Tanaro Appassimento

san tanato appas

Wine description:

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Cuveé
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Style: Full-bodied, rich red wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Good Deal Awards
  • Price: 279 Kč

Mike's Tip

Appassimento, like Ripasso or Amarone is a special treat. Leaving the grapes on the vine till the very last minute, and letting them dry out further before pressing means the sugar and alcohol are at their max. These are full bodied wines that need to begin with a heavy meal, and finish in from of a fire. 100% Relax

Château Haut-Landon AOC Bordeaux Supérieur

chateau haut landon

Wine description:

  • Country: France
  • Grape: Cuveé
  • Alcohol: 13,5%
  • Style: Medium-bodied red wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Good Deal Awards
  • Price: 259 Kč

Mike's Tip

Bordeaux blends are copied all over the world, but this is an original. A mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec give this wine it’s distinct fruit front and dry finish. The Superior classification guarantees quality (and the list of medals it collected also helps...) Best served with red meat and heavy sauce.

Wairau Valley Single Vineyard

  • Alcohol: 13%
  • Style: Medium-bodied dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine for immediate consumption
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Good Deal Awards
  • Price: 259 Kč

Mike's Tip

What more needs to be said Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough ! All that grass and prickly green flavor is so distinct for the region, with that touch of fruity sugar in the finish. This region of New Zeeland has not produced a bad win in 300 years. This one is no exception.

Celdina Monterrei DO Godello

  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Good Deal Awards
  • Price: 279 Kč

Mike's Tip

Here is something we have never had before. Godello is a little known variety from the north west of Spain. Lite with a citrus and lychee flavor, here would will find a lite white with plenty of minerals to cut though any cheese ;-)

San Tanaro Langhe

san tanaro

Wine description:

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Cuveé
  • Alcohol: 13%
  • Style: Light and refreshing dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine for immediate consumption
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Good Deal Awards
  • Price: 279 Kč

Mike's Tip

From the bank of the river Tanaro in the heart of the Piedmont region, you can expect top quality. A mix of chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc gives you a taste of apricot and pineapple. All with a lovely oily finish. Perfect for a baked salmon or fish and chips.

Sicanelli Vermentino Terre Siciliane IGT

sicanelli

Wine description:

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Vermentino
  • Alcohol: 13%
  • Style: Light and refreshing dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine for immediate consumption
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Good Deal Awards
  • Price: 229 Kč

Mike's Tip

Vermentino is a classic Italian variety well known from your holiday trips. Sicily or Sardinia, this grade has a soft texture and floral tones on top of a lite pallet and fragrant nose. Drink with white fish, salad or light cheese. Keep it lite!

Anares Grand Reserva

Anares rioja grand reserva

Wine description:

  • Country: Spain
  • Grape: Cuveé
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Style: Full-bodied, rich red wine
  • Drink: Wine suitable for aging
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Price: 339 Kč

Mike's Tip

Five years in the waiting, two of which were in an oak barrel. A Grand Reserva from Rioja can not be rushed. Granit red with a touch or black current and smoke. Look for the hints of vanilla hanging out back next to the peppers! Sounds weird, but it will all make sense when this elegant Spanish wines meets your mouth.

Capo Zafferano Appassimento Rosso

capo zafferano appassimento

Wine description:

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Cuveé
  • Alcohol: 14,5%
  • Style: Full-bodied, rich red wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Time to relax
  • Price: 319 Kč

Mike's Tip

Another entry into the, "Wines from old dried out grapes" category :-) This Appassimento is made from grapes left to dry out for two weeks before getting to the press. Expect a full bodied mouth of cherry, caramel and vanilla. The dried grapes give this wine a high alcohol content, so be careful. So smooth it will disappear from your glass without you having to try.

Governo Grand Maestro Red

Governo

Wine description:

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Cuveé
  • Alcohol: 13,5%
  • Style: Full-bodied, rich red wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Time to relax
  • Price: 279 Kč

Mike's Tip

Subtle and soft, this mix of Merlot and Sangiovese is made from a mix of fresh and dried grapes to boost its potential. Dried grapes have more concentrated levels of sugar, and that in the fermentation process gives greater alcohol potential, and a fruity and soft taste. One Italian wine guru gave this wine an astonishing 99 points. Now you decide.

Vento Caldo Syrah

Vento Caldo syrah

Wine description:

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Syrah
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Style: Full-bodied, rich red wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Time to relax
  • Price: 259 Kč

Mike's Tip

Spicy, smoky and with a punch of juicy fruit. All that in this mix of earth and fruits of the south. Think cassis and prunes, berries and herbs all put together in a wine that lets itself known in the minute it hits your mouth.

Onorio

Onorio Saugiovese Umbria

Wine description:

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Sangiovese
  • Alcohol: 13%
  • Style: Full-bodied, rich red wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Time to relax
  • Price: 229 Kč

Mike's Tip

Sangiovese is the grape that makes some of the most famous wines in the world - Chianti and Brunello. Full of cherries and tannins, this 96 point red bombshell will take you from dinner then right to bed. Berries, cherries and a little tobacco, this is a heavy red, so pair with beef and a grill.

Boatshed Bay

Boatshed bay sauvignon blanc

Wine description:

  • Country: New Zealand
  • Grape: Sauvignon blanc
  • Alcohol: 12,5%
  • Style: Rich, full-bodied dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Time to relax
  • Price: 299 Kč

Mike's Tip

Young, crisp, punchy and full of passion fruit and energy. Everything you expect from a Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough New Zeeland. A fresh finish and that touch of minerality that you expect.

Roero Arneis

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Arneis
  • Alcohol: 12,5%
  • Style: Light and refreshing dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine for immediate consumption
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Time to relax
  • Price: 239 Kč

Mike's Tip

Arneis is a medium bodied white full of minerals with a refreshing entry and short finish. Known as the "White Barolo" this wine from Piedmont comes from a cool climate full of rocky hills. Taste the rocks!

La Bestia Toscana

La bestia white

Wine description:

  • Country: Italy
  • Grape: Cuveé
  • Alcohol: 12,5%
  • Style: Medium-bodied dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine for immediate consumption
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Time to relax
  • Price: 239 Kč

Mike's Tip

Some of you may remember a red wine from La Bestia 2 years ago. It was one of our 2017 hits. They now introduce their first white from the same Tuscan hills. A mix of Trebbiano, Malvasia, Chardonnay, and Moscato produces a lovely mix of peaches, apples and raisins. A bit oily with a long finish. Enjoy it with risotto or salmon.

Johnny Q Chardonnay

Wine description:

  • Country: Australia

  • Alcohol: 13%
  • Style: Medium-bodied dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine for immediate consumption

  • Box: Time to relax
  • Price: 229 Kč

Mike's Tip

In Adelaide Hills, Johnny Quarisa is a real celebrity. Producing quality wines for over 30 years has earned him multiple awards and this Chardonnay is one of them. Light yellow and green, good acidity and hints of melon, pineapple and vanilla.

Vilalva

Mike's Tip

Juicy, fruity with an aroma of cassis, cherries and hints of spices. Soft and easy to drink, this is a feel good wine ready for any occasion. Especially "couching" !!!

Val Conde

  • Price: 209 Kč

Mike's Tip

Elegant flavor full of cherry and smoke, this award winner comes from one to the most renowned Spanish wine makers. Aged for 2 years in oak barrels, this Reserva will take you straight outside and demand that you put something on the grill. Pull the cork and get on with it.

Argiano Rosso Toscano

Argiano_Non_Confunditur_Rosso

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

"Excellent", "Beautiful", and 94 points from James Suckling - need I say more …A lovely Tuscan blend on a base of Sangiovese, a glass of this and a toast with mortadella = a ticket to heaven!

Wairau Valley

wairau valley sauvignon blanc

Wine description:

  • Country: New Zealand
  • Grape: Sauvignon blanc
  • Alcohol: 12%
  • Style: Light and refreshing dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine for immediate consumption
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Something for Everybody
  • Price: 249 Kč

Mike's Tip

Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough valley in New Zealand is considered the top of the top for this grape. Fruity, crisp and a lovely grassy tail, this is a great wine to serve as an aperitif, or with fish and salad. Interesting that almost all the wines from this part of the world come with a screw top. Drink it young and fresh.

Barón de Santuy Reserva

Baron

Wine description:

  • Country: Spain
  • Grape: Tempranillo
  • Alcohol: 13,5%
  • Style: Full-bodied red aged in oak
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Box: Viva España
  • Price: 360 Kč

Mike's Tip

Black fruit, liquorish, vanilla and coffee, this one is a spice bomb. An elegant wine with a long history, this winery collects medals like ants to a picnic. This is a perfect companion to the last days of barbeque, so pair it well with something that comes off the grill.

Oro Negro

Mike's Tip

Hate the bottle, loved everything else. Grown at 800m from some "really old" vines, this is a very elegant gentleman that hides his 14.5% punch. Cherry, blackberry and woody tones gives a soft long finish.

Caballo d’Oro Gran Reserva

Just the facts - voted the best wine in Spain. A pretty impressive CV. Dark and full of chocolate, coffee and caramel. A sure thing for steaks or just relaxing, this one is 100% delicious.

This Crianza has been awarded 3 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze medals over the years. Made from a base of Tempranillo with a touch of Grenache and Mazuelo delivers a blend of cherries, coffee and vanilla.

Casa Safra Fermentado en Barrica

  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Víno výhodně.cz
  • Price: 349 Kč

Mike's Tip

99% of the time, Verdejo is drank when it is young and fresh. When you find that 1%, your in for something special. This is a complex and rich wine which rested in the barrel for 8 months. It has a long oily finish with a lovely gold / green color. This is a something special wine.

Nube

  • Price: 259 Kč

Mike's Tip

Clean, fresh, salty and all the hints of a New Zealand Sauvignon blanc. Sounds more complicated than it need be, but this is lovely wine with great acidity that will clean your pallet. A great seafood wine from Sauvignon and Viura.

Tuna Club

Mike's Tip

Named after the famous club of the same name on Catalina Island (that's California folks :-), this was the place to find Charlie Chaplin and Bing Crosby on a weekend break. Nothing to do with this light blend of Verdejo and Sauvignon blanc, but just thought you would like to know....Melons and minerals without the movie stars.

Caballo d’Oro Rueda do Verdejo

Mike's Tip

Rueda is one of the "hip" places for Spanish wine at the moment. Located in the north west and split by the river Duero that continues into Portugal, the area is a little cooler than other regions near by. Altitude also helps. At 650m, this is Verdejo country, and a perfect place it is !

Mike's Tip

40 years the same thing. I guess when you found the right formula for a simple, fresh Sauvignon, there is no need to change. Pears, apples and a touch of acidity, this is one of those value wines that you will come back to time and again.

Mike's Tip

This family winery in Germany has a long history of creating quality biologic wines. A classic Sauvignon with good acidity from citrus fruits and a touch of minerals.

Terra Grande

terra grande toscanaa

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

“Super Tuscans” are what they call the big red wines from that region which are not made exclusively from Sangiovese like in this case. Her we have a splash of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to make this big red, in a big bottle, with a big score of 96 a big BIG deal. There is nothing subtle about this wine – it will dominate your table.

Buena Ribera

Ribera del duero

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

A 10 year old Spaniard reserve from the Duero valley – WOW. Exceptionally full bodied, this will fill you with ripe cherry, oak (21 months in the barrel) and smoke. Tinto Fino or more commonly referred to as Tempranillo is the mainstay of the Ribera del Deuro region. This wine needs to breath after 10 years, so please decant or open it before you leave for work in the morning.

La Bestia

bestia

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

You are in for something special here. This wine from Tuscany is more or less an equivalent to an Amarone. After picking, the grapes were left to dry in the hot Tuscan sun for weeks before being turned into wine. This means a very full, fruity “sweet” taste that everybody (repeat EVERYBODY) will love. Very drinkable – enjoy.

Fabrice Vincent Grebet Pouilly-Fumé

pouill - kopie

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

One of the most famous and prestigious wines from the Loire. Pouilly-Fumé must be made exclusively with Sauvignon Blanc and gets it’s name from the large grey (Smokey) flower blossoms that appear on the vines at harvest time. For me, there is nothing better to drink with oysters – this is it!

Mike's Tip

When wine from New Zealand, then a Sauvignon blanc from the Marlborough region is usually the first pick. Perfect for cold fish of any type, with a crisp green taste and good acidity. At just 12.5%, this is an excellent aperitif to get the party going. Fresh and light with just a little bite…

Domaine Saint Paul Colline

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb 1

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Picpoul is also known as the “Chablis of the South” because of its intense yellow color, and bright, fresh taste. For me personally, Picpoul is also a much easier grape to drink, making it a perfect companion for dinners with friends and family when you have no idea what they like. A go everywhere companion to be used when your not sure “what”.

Tentuta Soave

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Coming from the area around Verona, this crystal clear golden, green cuvee brings a full taste of pears, apples and a touch of anise. Soave must always include the Garganega grape, it may also include Chardonnay or Trebbiano as this one does. This is a medium bodies white wine with a long finish suitable for all occasions including sipping on the sofa while watching the tube.

Mount Penrice Reserva Shiraz

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb (3)

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Down Under Mate!. This Australian Syrah (Shiraz in Australian) has deep jammy tones and a hint of dark chocolate. Look for intense fruity flavor with a tail of spice and blueberry!

Chateau Nouaillac Bordeaux

1127_lef_3740

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Dressed Up. What better to celebrate the last dinner of a holiday than with a true Grand Vin from Bordeaux. This classic Cabernet, Merlot, Petit Verdot blend from 25 year old vines delivers a very refined touch to any meal of baked meat or pork.

La Grille Pouilly-Fumé

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb (2)

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Elegance. Arguably the most famous wine of the Loire valley, Pouilly-Fume is known all over the world a an excellent accompaniment to shell fish. With oysters, perfect! This Sauvignon has in intense mineral flavor with high acidity that will clean your pallet.

Armand Schereyer Pinot Blanc

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb (1)

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Cool in the foothills. If you taste Chardonnay in this Pinot Blanc from Alsace, you will not be alone. Many of the same characteristics are found in this variety that is a little "less traveled". Light and fresh, perfect for an outdoor meal and that Alsatian bottle always adds a touch of class.

Pigoudet Cuveé La Chapelle Blanc

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Provence. I think everybody has fantasized over sitting in a French café on the beach in Provence, sipping a glass of clear, crisp wine. Well, we have moved the mountain to Mohamed, and put THAT wine on your table :-). Light, mineral and floral tones.

Damilano Barbera d’Alba

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb 4

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Big aggressive tannic blackberry flavor! The Piedmont Barbera's are not for those who don't like the quiet and subtle. This wine has strong spice elements, so be ready for a little cinnamon and green pepper. And of course, serve with beef! Wine Enthusiast 88 points.

Damilano Dolcetto d’Alba

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb 2

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

A deep rusty red, this is a wine with a bit more acidity mixed in with red fruits and almonds. Like a lot of young wines, Dolcetto is not a variety I suggest to drink without food. And ideal partner will be a pork chop or chicken. Make it a white meat weekend!

Damilano Langhe Arneis

p_catalogue_detail_large_thumb 3

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

If you prefer getting your advice from Wine Spectator, then 88. If you trust James Suckling, then 90 . Whatever your reference, another refreshing mineral fruit bomb. The mineral tomes are a bit more pronounced in this wine, so suggest fried foods and fish.

Truffle Hunter

vino

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

As the name implies, Piedmont is also famous for truffles! And the story just gets better! This wine is made 100% from the grape Favorita ! Look for mineral tones with a strong helping of pears. A simple wine but sure to be an outdoor dining "favorite" …( sorry : )

Look for a spicy flavor here, as the Syrah comes out at the end of the plums and nutty flavor. A bronze meddle winner from the Decanter wine awards, scoring 88 points, this is an intense wine ready for a steak or big juicy burger.

Mike's Tip

To get on Robert Parker's list is accomplishment enough, but this 91 point love bomb will fix any problem you may have. This is a classic mix of leather and vanilla from Toro. This wine is at it's peak right now, so don't let the awards or 14,5% fool you in to putting in the back of your collection. It is ready to rock, and that it will!

Mike's Tip

Tempranillo without a year in oak comes out a lot fruitier and fresher. This is an ideal lunch wine for your BBQ. Enough body to go with any burger or pork collar, but not so sophisticated that you don't want to pull it out of the cabinet. Look for a little spice here, liquorice and pepper. This is classic Rioja

Mike's Tip

A lot of flavor comes out here. A Crianza refers to a wine from Rioja, made from Tempranillo that is aged in oak for at least 1 year, the aged in the bottle for another year before being sold. These are medium priced wines, that have good tannin and a deep purple color. This wine needs a hearty dish, so think lamb, gulas or some really smelly strong cheese. Be strong, because it is!

Mike's Tip

The only varietal white in the box, this Albarino is clear and light. The medium alcohol content makes it a very easy wine even without a food pairing. A light acidity comes from the peach and green apple flavor. This is a sure thing for guests, and will work with any fish or white meat dish.

Mike's Tip

Faustino is arguably the most famous (read most sold) Spanish winemaker. Their focus is export, and they do it well selling their wines to over 70 counties. This Chardonnay based cuveé comes in one of the most unattractive bottles we have seen for a while, but look past that and you have a great simple white for pork or white sausages. Don't complicate things here, chill and grill :-)

Mike's Tip

The high altitude of this vineyard means big variation in temperature. Hot days and cold nights give these grapes a higher acidity, making the wine richer with a long finish. This one has a bit of a bite. Look for green apple and what I can only describe as a taste of "grey" minerals. Given the full palate, pair this with any snacks or dips. The taste will hold its own!

This cuvee of Viura and Malvasia has a strong floral scent, with a light touch of acidity. This is a perfect warm weather wine. Light and dry, a touch of fruit and a clear, straw color.
Definitely not a sangria ingredient, but a great companion for a salad or other light food.

Mike's Tip

Probably my favorite red wine variety with a big fat steak. Add a little fat on the side, and some gristle, you can’t find a better food pairing. The fruity taste will go great with lots of things, but it is the aggressive nature of the tannin and acidity that cuts the protein in your mouth. Be it a burger, meatball, roast, or steak, there is just one thing to remember with this one – Show me the Beef!

Wild - 91 Parker points is really all you need to know about this one. A rich and complex Tempranillo that hints off all things black! Tobacco, leather, black current and berries. I found this wine back in August and have been waiting for a special occasion to put it on the table. Merry Christmas!

Elegant - The Sauvignons from the Loire Valley are famous the world over. This is a crisp, full white perfect for a plate of oysters or other cold salty fish. Think about your holiday appetizers for this one, or that something special for those who will only be drinking white.

Intense in color and flavor, just like the land this wine comes from. Grown from a land covered in yellow slate, the extreme heat gives these grapes tremendous potential for flavor and maturing in the bottle. A touch of oak made this my favorite white of the box.

Full and fruity. Imagine a salad of oranges, grapefruits, pears, plums and lemon. Then add a touch of salt. Sound odd ? Well Robert Parker gave it a 90 ! Put this one with salmon or even some Asian food. The touch of sugar will do will with something exotic.

We are back with another 90 "Parker" point wine, this time a spicy Grenache. The 11 months of aging in oak barrels gives it a clear taste of vanilla and a fantastic balance and finish for a wine in this price range. If you are not a Grenache fan yet, this one will convince you.

Don Mendo Gran Reserva

This grande reserva from 2009 aged 20 months in oak barrels before aging another 4 years in the bottle. A mix of Syrah, Cabernet and Tempranillo, it gives a good balance of maturity, flavor for it's price. Look for the vanilla and coffee tones.

Here we are AGAIN. Another 90 Parker point wine and indeed a Grenache that you will want to compare to the others in this box. This is a fresh wine meant to be drank young when it's spicy flavor is at its' full. Pair this one with some strong dark meat or stew.

Pico Cuadro

If you are looking for complexity, you will find it here. Coming from and 80 year old vines, this ruby red brings you a mix of fruit, tobacco and a hint of leather. It is important to leave this wine to breath before drinking, and pair it with some peppery salami, or beef. A true gem.

Total shocker this one. I admit we tried it just because of its funny label and bottle shape. But WOW, this is one of the chance gold mines you stumble across. Look past the "Pirates of the Caribbean " bottle motive, and you will find a 100% Tempranillo that was aged for over 2 years in oak, and another 13 years in the bottle. Aged enough and ready to consume RIGHT NOW. So smooth this will go with a steak, or a movie night on the sofa.

These are the spices I was talking about. Syrah takes a lot of its flavor from the area it is grown. In this case, the warmer climate gives it a softer pepper taste, but leaves a hint of liquorice and leather (trust me here). Elegant and an excellent full bodied red for any stewed meat of game dish (and a great break away from the same old Merlot / Cabernet line).

This classic Bordeaux cuvee shows both its; maturity and its terroir. That little bit of acidity from the Cabernet Franc comes out, and demands that this wine properly breaths before drinking (1 hour minimum) and will accompany some red meat preferably with a bit of fat. Not for the dinner with "Kapr" or ham, but the steak or burger the day after ;-)

For you experts out there, you will know this variety as Primitivo. Not because it tastes like a football hooligan, but rather that is the first
(primi) grape picked at the harvest. Whatever you call it, Zinfandel is the 2nd most popular red grape in the USA, putting its' global consumption in the top 10. Not that it matters, but more importantly this wine was awarded a "Best Buy" award from our own Wine and Degustation magazine. Round and full bodied, with a long tail of vanilla.

Coming to you from the "Farm of the world" the San Joaquin Valley of California. Measuring 100 by 750 Kms, this is America's fruit and vegetable garden and the largest farm in the world. It also produces 90% of all the Californian wine. This one comes from the norther end close to San Fransisco, and gives a strong mineral, and very light oak taste. I would have said France.

Pauline was Napoleon's favorite and most trusted sister and a woman with a certain love of life. Not sure how she would up on a bottle of Chardonnay from Burgundy, but it doesn't really matter. Chardonnay is best known for Chablis, which is a specific sub region. But it is the same sun just across the path and this is where we find this one. What makes it a little unusual is that it was rested 3 months in oak giving it a rounder, more caramel taste. I would have said California.

Also a new world "Sauvage" but more a little brother than a big hitter. The lower alcohol content and minerality makes this a much simpler wine and ready for all occasions. Don't be afraid to pull this on out for the in-laws as its fruity taste makes it a very easy drink.

How many gold medal labels can you fit on one bottle ? This wine entered the race (and won 5x!) . A classic new world Sauvignon with well balanced flavor of grass, minerals and white fruit. Delicate enough for any light starter, but with flavor to match a cold fish starter. Get out the shell fish.

I mentioned that Tunisia had a tradition of wine making dating back from the colonial times. With a climate similar to its Mediterranean neighbors in the north, wine making was a growing industry until Tunisian independence in the 1950. Only now is large scale production coming back to the country and evidently has a huge rose potential.

Who would of thought that a Turkish wine would prove so popular ? We did! Sultana is most common in the middle east and Australia (often used for raisin production) and is known for its' light acidity and fruitiness. Low acidity makes for a popular easy drinking white wine perfect for warm days, picnics or lunch. And we guarantee you are going to be the only one on the block with a Turkish wine you didn't smuggle back from a holiday.

Rueda's the region, Verdejo the grape. Believe it or not, this variety originated in north Africa and was brought north some 1,000,000 years ago (approximately:-). You can not miss the flavor of pears in this light mineral filled wine. We found this one to be an exceptional value for money.

Just when you thought you knew what an Albarino tastes like, this one walks in. Completely different. Much more delicate, lower acidity and just a hint of oak. Too complex for drinking on its own, but more versatile when pairing with food. Stay away from salty fish and go more for a white meat. My favorite white in the box.

This Verdejo is a beautiful straw coloured wine with an intense nose of fruit. I tasted dry, sour pears and peaches. Evidently the region this wine is coming from is a "hot" new comer, and many expect to see "Ucles" on the verdejo map for quite some time. I find these wines to be ideal with cold fish. Like a starter with muscles of calamari. Serve it very cold!

My first impression was delicate, but the finish was anything but. A wild and spicy flavor that reminded me of a Sauvignon that is evidently typical of the Albarino grape. This one has a bit of an oily finish, so lingers in your mouth for a long time.

How many gold medal wines can we put in 1 box? Evidently, quite a few!. Think of this one as a Tempranillo with a twist. Indeed this is a cuvee including Garnacha and Mazuelo (two of those 600 or so varieties we talked about). I found the belend ot be a bit drier and less heavy than the other Tempranillo. Excellent sipping wine (and yes, that is a Silver medal from Decanter - serious stuff!
