Glaetzer Blaufrankisch Austria 2 x 75cl Bottles Germans call it Lemberger, Austrians call it Blaufränkisch; let's call the whole thing off. What's important is that this black grape variety produces spicy wines with good tannins and firm acidity, similar to one of the crus of Beaujolais; in fact, until recently, Blaufränkisch was believed to be Gamay. These are often ageworthy wines, and they're some of the best things coming out of Austria...

Mandarossa Viognier Sicily, Italy 2 x 75cl bottles First produced in 1999, the Mandrarossa wines come from a selection of the best sites from Cantine Settesoli’s 6,000 hectares of vineyard, situated in southwestern Sicily and planted with 32 different grape varieties. This range was conceived after the diverse soils of the vineyards were mapped, enabling the winemakers to focus on what were then ranked their best sites. Under the leadership of co-operative president Giuseppe Bursi, consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini has sought to improve viticulture, which in turn has resulted in better wines. Working with soil specialist Pedro Parra and head winemaker Mimmo De Gregorio, Alberto has selected 500 hectares of vineyard for the production of the Mandrarossa wines. These vineyards are situated close to the sea, where intense sunlight, moderating sea breezes, mild temperatures, multiple elevations and a myriad of different soil types combine to give the sort of grapes that Mimmo and Alberto are looking for. A great wine!
Bodegas Navajas Crianza Bianco Haro, Rioja, Spain 2 x 75cl A delicate fresh and intriguing taste on the palate, with ripe and warm at the same time. There is a perfect balance between the lively young fruit flavours and the acidity, with subtle oak flavours. In the UK white Rioja is a best selling wine. We drink much less of it in ireland, perhaps because we don't see as much of it but expect to be wowed here with an unusual and new wine. A real show stopping wine that will make you buy more white Rioja we hope. If nothing else, it is something new and unusual.
