Alc vol:14.50% | Line no:652082 This is a fine example of a powerful, ripe and charming Ripasso-style Valpolicella. It is produced in partnership with Fratelli Recchia, a family firm founded in 1906, which owns some of the best vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico area. Ripasso offers a very drinkable, balanced alternative to Amarone at a more approachable price. Enjoy this rich wine with roast beef.
Alc vol:14.50% | Line no:076775 With ripe red and black fruit flavours, hints of spice and a smooth chocolatey, oaky finish, this is a vibrant and rich red. It is made from 100% Shiraz grapes by Waitrose in partnership with renowned Barossa Valley winery St Hallett, and blended in consultation with the Waitrose wine buyer to reflect the definitive nature of Barossa Valley Shiraz. It’s a perfect pairing with tender steak.
Alc vol:12.50% | Line no:060369 This is a classic style of left-bank claret, predominantly Merlot with around a third
of the blend being Cabernet Franc, which brings freshness and elegance. A small
percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure to the softer Merlot fruit character. Supple tannins support flavours of blueberry and plum with a subtle note of smoky complexity and gentle spice. Ideal paired with red meat dishes or mature hard cheeses.
