With the restaurants sadly closed for the duration of this crisis (don't worry, they'll be back though!) We find ourselves with a plethora of wine waiting to hit restaurant tables that are currently gathering dust...
In response we're offering a great deal on some of the classic bottles that are mainstays of our restaurants - the sort of delicious Tempranillo we'd normally have on by the glass for $15.00 or by the bottle for $70.00 or $80.00 in the restaurant, we're now offering as part of a pack of six bottles available delivered to your door for $160.00.
The bottles are selected in much the same way we look at the by the glass offering of the wine lists - balancing the light, delicate next to the broad and powerful. This time around, it's a fresh, aperitif ready Albarino from one of the very few organic producers in Rias Baixas, followed by a richer, textured field blend from young punks in Ribeira Sacra. A very dry, but darkly coloured Rose that harks back to an old Catalan style of summer-drinking, somewhere between chilled light red and rose but completely delicious on a summer day! This also segues nicely into reds, starting with the elegant, pale coloured, Pinot-weighted Garnacha from Maranones. Then rounded out by two powerful, winter reds - Casa Castillo's Monastrell and Alvar de Dios' Tio Uco Toro Tempranillo.
Best of all - we're offering them, delivered to your door, at an amazing price, with a can of MoVida Sardines thrown in the box so if you close your eyes and turn off the news for a second you may just think you're back at the bar, on a typical Friday evening splashing back Albarino with a salty Galician Sardine, looking forward to the weekend ahead...
