South American Case OFFER

California USA

RRP 62.80 / Offer - £55.00 We want to take you on a trip of South America to taste some of their indigenous varieties and others they have managed to make their own. In this varied case you will find a Tannat from Uruguay, A Malbec, Bonarda and Torrontes from Argentina and a Carmenere and Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. (See below for tasting notes.)
  • Tannat - Rich nose of Christmas fruit cake, dried fruits, brown baking spices, cinnamon and glace cherries. Firm and full-bodied with well-structured tannins that are balanced by bright acidity.
  • MalbecRipe red fruits, smoke and chocolate all show on the forward and alongside an intense nose. The palate has elegant tannins and subtle acidity that all underpin the brambly fruit, sweet smoke and hint of meatiness.
  • Bonarda - Pure strawberry and blueberry fruit abound on the enticing nose. The palate is complex and layered with cinnamon, cherry tobacco and plum fruits. Finely structured tannins provide texture whilst a clean acidity maintains freshness. The finish is long and displays blueberry pancakes, sweet smoke and dark fruit.
  • Torrontes - Classic notes of nectarine, rose petal and honey blossom are all present on the alluring nose. The palate has some texture and honeyed feeling with flavours of orange fruit, warm peach and summer flowers. A finely balanced and precise acidity keeps the wine fresh and lively.
  • Carmenere - Deep garnet in colour with a crimson hue. On the nose this wine exhibits heady notes of raspberry, cedar and bacon with just a hint of fresh lavender (stay with us, and trust its a goody!). In the mouth an initial attack of red cherry, sweet tobacco and cinnamon gives way to just a touch of ripe bell pepper. Ripe tannins and fresh acidity combine to give good balance and length.
  • Sauvignon Blanc - A lifted nose of citrus fruits, acacia and apple moves to a light and refreshing palate of apples, pears and some freshly cut grass.
