The House of Fun Shiraz Malbec 2018

Western Cape, South Africa 14% abv

£9.99

This luscious combo of spicy Shiraz and blackberry rich Malbec is full of smooth fruity fun. It's a new release from the Gabb family's Mount Rozier estate in premium Stellenbosch. A gorgeously moreish red, with juicy ripe fruit and freshness.

 

Il Papavero

Vino Rosso, Italy 12.5% abv
£7.99

If we had to rely on a single wine to capture the essence of Italy, it would be Il Papavero! It's made by master winemaker Scipione Giuiliani. Every vintage he selects only the ripest, most flavoursome grapes from the top performing regions to ensure Il Papavero is consistently delicious with soft, supple, red berry vibrancy.

 

Il Papavero Primitivo 2016

Puglia, Italy 14.5% abv
£9.99

Puglian Primitivo is seriously fruity and bold and this is one of the most appealing. To match the richness of the fruit the wine is aged in barrel for a few months, lending it mellow roundness and complexity. ll Papavero Primitivo is a weighty red, best served with similarly hearty food. Enjoy with spaghetti with tomato, garlic and basil sauce, or with roast meats or pork casserole.

 

Il Papavero Pinot Grigio 2017

Sicily 12% abv

£9.99

The grapes for this wine come from high hillside vineyards by the coast in Sicily. It's mouthwatering stuff, a moreish mix of rich pear and citrus flavours. Sunshine and sea breezes are the perfect grape growing conditions for which Sicily has become famous. Il Papavero is a delight with white meats or seafood risotto.

 

Il Papavero Prosecco

Prosecco, Italy 12.5% abv

£12.50

What's not to adore about Prosecco? All the sophistication of Champagne, yet softer, more fruity and just a little bit more fun as it's so affordable. It's the definitive northern Italian fizz with a creamy mousse and delicious fruit. A great Papavero addition.
