Yves Cuilleron Marsanne Vignes à Côté 2016, Northern Rhône, France – reduced from CHF 17.90 to CHF 14.90/ 75cl!
Marsanne is the main white grape of the famous and long-lived white wines of Hermitage. This example comes from granite-soiled vineyards outside of Condrieu. It is dry, fresh, and fairly full bodied, with flavours of nuts, stone fruits and a gentle touch of honey. It has very impressive minerality and length for a wine at this price.
Foz Torto Tinto 2014, Douro, Portugal – reduced from CHF 19.90 to CHF 14.90/ 75cl!
A superb value red coming from the heart of Portugal’s Douro valley – full of warmth, personality and power. Made from 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca and other local grape varietals, this has aromas of wild raspberries and woodland berries, rich, spicy fruit on the palate and gently integrated oak flavours. A delicious and uniquely winter-warmer made by Sandra Tavares, one of the region’s best-respected winemakers.
