This week, Wineonline are also giving you a free bottle of Consecha Noble Late Harvest Riesling when you order The Summer Selection. That’s 13 bottles instead of 12.
Your 13 bottle case will include the following wines:
1 x Consecha Noble Late Harvest Riesling
This Late Riesling is a unique concept of sweet wine. It is produced from delicately selected botrytized grapes grown in Mulchén, one of the southernmost vineyards in Chile. Located in the Bío Bío Valley, it is an ideal area for the production of noble wines because of its exceptional climate and red clay soils. These special characteristics are what give this wine the name Cosecha Noble.
2 x Prosecco Fiabesco, Veneto, DOCG, Italy
Fiabesco is different to other Proseccos for many reasons - The soil that the Glera grapes are grown in are primarily Limestone and clay, and the climate is a little warmer than other Prosecco producing areas. The result is a Prosecco that is richer and drier than in other areas and this one is full of flavour. It is made in the Frizzante style and it is buttery, with pear, melon and apple flavours. It is crisp, dry and beautifully refreshing.
- 2 x Rioja Vega Semi Crianza, Rioja, Spain
Another new arrival in Ireland, It won a resounding Gold medal at the Irish Wine Awards last November. It is aged in oak barrels for 9 months rather than the standard 12 months that Crianza ages for and it is soft, luscious and really well balanced. What is so lovely about this wine is how it is all about the quality of the fruit and less about the oak, vanilla, and other savoury flavours that lengthy oak ageing brings. As a result, the wine is fresh, vibrant and really nicely balanced. Best Rioja I’ve tasted this year!
2 x The Secretary Bird Merlot
A blockbuster merlot from Western Cape and our best selling BBQ wine. It's juicy, big and full of succulent blackberry fruits. It's one of those wines people try in our mixed cases, and come back again and order by the case. That says enough for the quality for us!
- 1 x Santa Macarena Pinot Noir, Single Vineyard, Leyda Valley, Chile
Another wine that has landed to a stunning response. In August 2017 It was given a Silver Medal when the Decanter World Wine Awards were announced. The vineyard is situated beside Cono Surs 20 Barrels Pinot Noir which is over twice as expensive. It is a singe vineyard wine, cool harvested at night time and the wine is made by Irish Winemaker Fergal Tynan. He buys 3/5 of the grapes from the vineyard owner and it sells out in no time. We have just 8 cases left! If you love pinot Noir, you need to try this. Jean Smullen Wine Critic tasted it last week's supper club and for her it was 'wine of the night'.
- 2 x The Secretary Bird Sauvignon Blanc, Western Cape, South Africa
A crisp and refreshing sauvignon made in the style of a New Zealand Sauvignon blanc. It's crisp, refreshing and beautifully balanced. It has been a hit for WineOnline in the restaurants who have listed it, and is as renowned as the Merlot under the same label. A real crowd Pleasing wine with lovely acidity. Great for warm weather and humid days.
- 1 x Contessa Camilla Barrique Aged Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Italy
Medal Winning Montepulciano from Giuseppe di Camillo. We have been importing this wine into Ireland from Giuseppe di Camillo since 2001 along with his other wines. This however, is his flagship wine. It is aged in 225 litre Slovenian barriques for 18 months and it is divine. We sell it at €17 per bottle and it should retail at €26 per bottle. A cracking example of how rich and textured Southern Italian wines can be.
- 2 x Santa Cruz Verdejo, Alpara, Spain
If you like Albarino or Chablis, you're sure to love this. Alpara is 100kms inland from Valencia on the East coast of Spain and we have only been working with Bodegas Santa Cruz since 2015. This wine is so joyous. It works deliciously with seafood and salads and has the minerality of a great Chablis. Enjoy it with or without food, either way, you will enjoy it! It has won many awards, including a Silver Medal at the Brussels wine show.
