Let's start with some lovely Argentine wines from...
San Rafeal, Argentina
Developed by Bodega Lavaque, the Conquista brand expresses a perception of history, tradition, warmth, style, and multicultural Italiano-Hispanic character of San Rafeal at the foothills of the Andes Mountains.
The grapes are hand harvested at optimum ripeness in the dry, cool climate of Southern Mendoza, a region that is ideal for the development of fine, premium quality grapes.
Today, we will be tasting a pair of lovely red wines that represent outstanding values from Argentina.
2013 Malbec - 8.99: A blend of 88% Malbec, 6% Bonarda, 3% Shiraz, 3% Merlot, Conquista Malbec is bright and fruity with plum, spice and red fruit aromas. It is full-bodied with good acidity and layers of blackberries and blueberries, hints of mocha and spice on the lingering finish.
2013 "Oak Cask" Red Blend - 10.99: This blend of 40% Malbec, 40% Syrah and 20% Bonarda has roasted fruit aromas along with red currant and fully ripe blackberry notes. Maximum berry expression and a jammy, deep-fruited finish with perfectly balanced tannins and lingering integrated oak flavor.
Let's get in the spirit with...
Warrington, Cheshire, England
More than a tradition in England, for over 250 years, Greenall's has been the Original London Dry gin! It has been distilled in Warrington, in the oldest gin distillery in the UK, since 1761.
As we celebrate our independence from Great Britain during the heat of the summer, what better way to do so than with a refreshing Gin and Tonic made with a classic London Dry Gin?
Get a taste of the original with us this Thursday evening!
Greenall's London Dry Gin - 14.99/750 ml, 28.99/1.75L: Since first created to an original family recipe in 1761, little has changed about the smooth rich rounded flavor of Greenall's Original London Dry Gin. This recipe is a closely guarded secret, known only to the 7 master distillers who have crafted the gin for generations.
We can tell you it uses a blend of the finest botanicals from around the world. Perfectly balanced between sweet and bitter, you'll notice notes of juniper, coriander seeds, angelica and lemon amongst other botanicals. It makes a most enjoyable cocktail, sure to refresh you on a hot summer's night!
