Barbecue Reds Mixed Case
12 bottles per case
Warmer weather is finally here and we have started to fire up the barbecue. Get all the wines you need for your barbecue with friends in this Mixed Case.
Each case includes three bottles of the following wines:
3 bottles x Markus Altenburger Blaufränkisch Vom Kalk 2020 (Burgenland, Austria)
Red | Blaufränkisch
Grown on calcareous loam, the Blaufränkisch Vom Kalk is down-to-earth: fruity without being too superficial, persistent without being too demanding. The wine is produced without the help of technical or chemical tools, spontaneous fermented on the must, and matured primarily in large old wooden barrels. It is the house wine, the neighbourhood wine, the friendship wine – one that everybody wants to pour in the glass – a perfect meal companion or to be enjoyed solo with a good conversations and silent thoughts.
Pairing suggestion: High-toned, bright, black cherry in the nose leading to a nice density despite its slight frame. Lushly-fruited and filled with tart fruit skin, cherry pit bitterness, ginger spice, and saline, pungent, and chalky mineral nuances.
3 bottles x Cotonesi 'La Mannella' Leonus 2021 (Tuscany, Italy)
Red | Sangiovese
91 points by Wine Align
This wine, Lèonus, is a humble but mighty Toscana IGT made from grapes that are in fact grapes cultivated to be Brunello, from vineyards in Montalcino. It is one of the best value wines from the area. This Rosso Toscano is juicy and fresh. Full of red cherries and dark berries on the nose, with a delicate astringency on the palate. It has such a great balance and it drinks so well that it's the perfect everyday wine.
Pairing suggestion: This wine pairs brilliantly with dishes prepared with tomato sauce and herbs, such as lasagna or pizza. It's also great with antipasti (olives, cured meats, pecorino cheese), and simply roasted meats or chicken.
3 bottles x Punset Neh! Langhe Rosso 2018 (Piedmont, Italy)
Red | Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo
91 points by Wine Align
This red is called 'Neh! after a popular Piedmontese slang used to finish a sentence, similar to 'eh. It is a blend of Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo, the local red grapes in Piedmont. This wine has deep fruity aromas with red summer fruits, like black cherry, strawberries and raspberries. The colour is dark ruby and the wine shows good structure, acidity and medium body with a distinct earthiness.
Pairing suggestion: Punset Neh! is an everyday wine, perfect with all kinds of food and even by itself. Uncork this bottle any time and enjoy it!
3 bottles x Pearce Predhomme Cinsault/Syrah 2021 (Stellenbosch, South Africa)
Red | Cinsault, Syrah
90 points by Wine Align
It has a brilliant medium purple colour in the glass. On the nose, it's all about fresh ripe red & black fruit: cherry, strawberry, wild raspberry; with hints of intense spice, it also has a granite minerality. On the palate it is light-bodied, with a vibrant acid and grippy though delicate tannins. It intermingles with surprisingly powerful fruit & spice; punching above its weight in flavour. It is very balanced with low alcohol.
Pairing suggestion: This light red pairs with all manner of dishes: from barbecue meats to grilled salmon and veggies, to spicy dishes.
It requires four full cases of each wine in order for us to build and fulfill four mixed cases. This process usually takes about 7-10 business days but may vary.
