Save 16%! One bottle of each:

Bodegas Santo Cristo 50+ Garnacha (Campo de Borja, Spain)

Red wine made from 100% Old Vine Garnacha (Grenache) from vines all over 50+ years old in the region of Campo de Borja. Fermented in modern stainless steel tanks, and aged 4 months in oak.

Aromas of violets, baked raspberries and black pepper. Super smooth and fruity featuring stewed berries and a lick of smoked bacon, and a twist of roasted green herbs on the finish. Very appealling and being one of our own imports is superb value for money.

The 'Campo de Borja' wine region in Aragon Northern Spain is an extremely arid region - a little over an hour's drive South-East of Rioja and the original home of the infamous Borgia family that came to prominence in Renaissance Italy.


Wine Men of Gotham Shiraz (Langhorn Creek, Australia)

Aromas of baked plum pie, cinnamon and a floral lift. Medium bodied featuring waves of sweet berry fruit on the palate with a slightly woody dry finish.

Langhorn Creek is an hour's drive from Adelaide, and simultaneously an old yet young wine region, one of Australia's oldest dating back to the mid-1800s. That said, the region in the early 1990s hosted just 400 hectares of vines, which has since exploded to over 6,000 hectares with investment a mix of huge multinationals along with small boutique family producers. Red wine country, with Shiraz and Cabernet making up 70% of plantings.

Legend has it King John was was due to visit the village of Gotham England (~1200AD). To avoid the huge expense of hosting the royal entourage royal messengers found the 'wise men' engaged in ridiculous tasks such as trying to drown an eel, and joining hands around a thorn bush to shut in a cuckoo. The king, wisely, decided to stay elsewhere.  The Wine Men are clearly not to be taken too seriously, producing a range of wines squarely targeted at the inexpensive and easy drinking end of the spectrum.


Domaine Juliette Avril Cotes du Rhone Rouge (Rhone, France)

This is one of our new imports. Classic smooth and fruity Cotes du Rhone from a family estate in the heart of Chateauneuf du Pape. Organic, sustainable, though not certified.

Grenache dominant blended with Syrah and a touch of Carignan. Dark coloured, perfumed sweet raspberry fruits, medium body. Good fruit dominance with fine tannins and savoury spices rounded out the finish.

Domaine Juliette Avril is a family winery of four generations in the heart of Chateauneuf - growing for centuries in the region and helped to create the rules of the appellation in 1928.  The vineyards are the classic mix of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and small amounts of the other 10 grape varieties permitted. An impressive half of the vines are over 50 years old.
