Bin number:

2 x Santa Julia Bonarda Reserve

Alc vol: 13.5% | Line no: 676046
This is a ripe, soft and juicy wine that really captures the warmth and sunshine of California. With inviting aromas of ripe blackcurrant and blueberry fruit, this rich and mouthflling wine is friendly enough to drink on its own or would be a great partner for smoky barbecue ribs or a chargrilled steak.


2 x Luis Felipe Edwards Bin Series Merlot
Central Valley, Chile

Alc vol: 13% | Line no: 615958
Lashings of ripe, complex, berry fruit mark out this 100% Merlot. A short time in contact with oak imparts a pleasing vanilla character overlaying the sweet cherry palate. With evident concentration, the flavours linger long on the powerful finish. It's a great Merlot with a stamp of place about it, made to be enjoyed with roasted or cold meats.

2 x Camino de Rioja Gran Reserva
Cariñena, Spain

Alc vol: 13.5% | Line no: 899345
Using grapes from the Rioja Baja, this ripe and juicy red combines notes of plums and cherries with subtly toasted oak. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Garnacha, this comes from Cariñena, perfectly located near Rioja. Silky, soft and fruity, this wine would be perfect with a rack of lamb.

2 x Long Lost Pinotage/Merlot
Western Cape, South Africa

Alc vol: 14% | Line no: 882678
Named after the rock dassie, a small rabbit-sized animal that is the 'long lost' closest relative of the African elephant. Pinotage is a classic South African red variety and, blended with Merlot, offers a soft, easy-drinking style, bursting with juicy ripe fruit. This is a well-rounded, medium-bodied wine, which goes well with meaty ribs or a hearty lasagne.

2 x Recchia Bardolino
Veneto, Italy

Alc vol: 12.5% | Line no: 612593
From the eastern slopes of Lake Garda in northern Italy comes this deliciously approachable cherry-fruited Corvina with small amounts of Molinara and Rondinella. Packed with juicy fruit, this wine is incredibly soft and easy, ideally served with mixed antipasti or lighter pasta dishes. Great for alfresco dining or try serving lightly chilled as an apéritif.

2 x La Umbra Merlot
Dealu Mare, Romania

Alc vol: 13% | Line no: 465886
A full-bodied lively red made in a modern style with no oak infuence. The rich, vibrant palate is full of plum and bramble fruit with a hint of chocolate on the finish. The Merlot grapes come from steep vineyards at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, where they enjoy near-perfect ripening conditions. Enjoy with roasted meats or full-favoured cheeses.
