The House of Fun Shiraz Malbec 2018
Western Cape, South Africa 14% abv
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.
Vino Rosso, Italy 12.5% abv
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
Il Papavero Primitivo 2016
Puglia, Italy 14.5% abv
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
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
Il Papavero Prosecco
Prosecco, Italy 12.5% abv
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
