Argentina Discovery: Case of 12 bottles

These include the plush heady expressions of the Torrontés white wine from Vasija Secreta, very well-made Tannat from Bodega Nanni, and some lovely Cabernet Franc which is being recognised as another speciality of the country. Renacer’s Malbec Rosé is perfect for the current season, so we’ve included two bottles!

There is much to discover about this wonderful country, and our friends there send their very best wishes to us in both Scotland and the whole of the UK!
Our ‘Alternative Sauvignon Blancs’ mixed case is designed to showcase a selection of wines from outside the well-known areas of Marlborough and Loire valley.

You’ll find cool crisp examples: Marea is a standout made in the cool coastal region of Leyda in Chile, it really does have a salty tang of the sea. Similarly the South African examples have a great freshness, the Constantia Uitsig is one of the most refined Sauvignons we have tasted in years. You’ll also find some elegance from the cool Dolomites in the North of Italy in the Castel Firmian.

The more exuberant fruity styles are to be found – perhaps surprisingly – in Rioja. The Nube charmed us with its tropical and peach aromas. The Haut Poitou is not your typical Loire example: the nose offers hints of passion fruit and mango while the palate retains the balance and finesse of a good Sancerre.

We hope this will make for a fun exploration and perhaps you may discover a new favourite.

Our wine buyer, Graeme Broom, was lucky enough to visit Argentina last year and has selected a host of new exciting wines to add to our list. Despite being relatively newly appreciated on the world scene, they have of course been making wine in Argentina for a long time. Nowadays everyone is as familiar with Mendoza Malbec as they are with Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
