Anyone taking the pledge for January it’s time to get over it! February’s here and we’ve another barrel-full of tasty temptations to whisk you around the wonderful world of wine.
First up is a new look and new blend for the great value Tesoro de los Andes from Argentina. Previously a Malbec-Shiraz blend, the 2010 Mendoza red is now 100% Malbec – expect dark, savoury damson – with it’s counterpart 2010 white the same fleshy, aromatic Torrontes-Chardonnay as in previous vintages. You can try both for only €7.50 per bottle this month.
Next it’s to McLaren Vale, South Australia, and a lesson in playing to individual strengths. In 1999, Woodstock owner Scott Collett joined forces with Ben Glaetzer – Scott in the vineyard, Ben in the cellar and together in the tasting room – and over a decade shaped Woodstock into one of the region’s finest single-estate wineries. With six grape varieties planted over 16 hectares, including 31 rows of 110 year-old, dry-grown Shiraz vines that go into the flagship ‘Stocks’, Woodstock capture the essence of McLaren Vale in every wine they produce.
We’ve €3 off each of the table wines* from Woodstock in February.
And we stay in South Australia for another of Ben Glaetzer’s portfolios, the Heartland range from Langhorne Creek and Limestone Coast. Customer favourites from day one in Curious, little has changed bar the vintages. Oh, and the price in February: up to €3 off a bottle across the range. Time to rekindle old acquaintances?
Finally, our February case of the month brings together the best of this month’s specials into a 12 bottle party medley. 6 red/6 white, 4 from Australia, 2 Argentinians and 3 each from France and Italy, and a saucy €23.88 off, you can get February’s finest for €115 or just €9.58 a bottle delivered. We’ve even put together all red and all white versions in case you’d prefer one or t’other.
Our 20% off Italy promotion continues, along with all the specials outlined above, until 28th February, so you’ve the chance to buy, try and buy again before the first buds of Spring.
