This festive season we have put together three of our favourite easy drinking red wines perfect for enjoying on cold evenings at home.
‘Running Duck Shiraz – 2019’ Organic and Fairtrade this delicious Shiraz from South Africa is sure to slide down all too easily. Organic and Fairtrade. This wine has a rich dark colour with a smoky and vanilla nose. Dark fruit on the palate gives the wine an all-round juiciness. Oaky tannins impart a spicy finish with good structure. Did you know that Shiraz and Syrah are actually the same grape variety? Syrah is generally from France and Shiraz from New World wine regions.
‘Otello Malbec – 2020’ The previous vintage (2019) was one of Christmas 2020s dark horses which quickly became a Craft’d Favourite. This fruity, brambly and supple wine, which is a distinctly Argentinian Malbec will impress with generous lashing of plum, blackberry and hints of vanilla spice. Delicious to enjoy with a meal or on its own.
The final bottle in our set is a true easy drinking champion which pairs beautifully with a range of foods, The ‘Le Versant Pinot Noir – 2019’ is a wine with a Delicate colour with garnet tones. On the nose, aromas of cherry, wild strawberries and fresh blackcurrant. Elegant and smooth palate with fruity, smoky and minty hints. Great when enjoyed with cooked meats, anything which is smoked, charcuterie and cheeses.
