A selection of the best organic red wines from the Old World
This 70 Merlot 30% Refosco blend is super supple, soft and ripe. Ruby in colour, the bouquet is of herbs and deep red fruits, with some toasty berried flavours coming through also on the palate. A wine with plenty of character thats easily appreciated. Try it with cheeses that are not too strong, pasta dishes or cured meats.
The 'Black Label High Altitude Garnacha Tintorera' from Bodegas Piqueras comes from the Almansa region of southeastern Spain. It is different to Garnacha, and is a rare 'red-fleshed' grape variety - the vast majority are clear-fleshed, with the skins providing the colour. It gives ripe red cherries, raspberries, crushed boysenberries, red plums and a touch of vanilla spice on the nose. Medium-bodied and deep in colour with well-integrated fine juicy tannins, persistent and soft on the palate with a silky fruit-forward finish.
A delightfully fragrant red wine from Portugal's Douro Valley that evokes the special nature of the region in which it was born. Fashioned from hand harvested, organically grown local grape varieties including Tinta Barocca, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional, it offers a wealth of bright, juicy fruit hinting at plum, raspberry and blackberry. An aromatic "pot pourri" of a wine. Gentle tannins allied to good freshness ensure that the wine is eminently drinkable even in its youth, unlike many other more substantial Douro reds that take a year or two to open up.
Soft and supple with rich depth, and a lingering smooth black cherry fruit finish.
'Insieme' means 'together' in Italian and signifies the help Santa Tresa received from the Stellar winery in South Africa, which is a leading organic and fair trade estate, also specialising in 'No Sulphur Added' (NSA) wines.
To produce an NSA wine requires incredible attention to detail, using hand selected optimally ripe grapes that are carefully handled and brought to the winery for processing as quickly as possible. Maximum cleanliness in the winery is crucial in order to reduce any possible unwanted microbiological growth, and oxygen must be excluded at all costs whilst the wine is being stored.
A tiny amount of sulphur (less than 10 parts per million) is present and only there as it's formed naturally, as part of the fermentation process itself. An increasing number of people see avoiding additives as a stepping stone towards health improvement, and it's gratifying to know one can enjoy outstanding quality wines at the same time!
