BIN 104  NOVEMBER VALUE CASE OF THE MONTH

2019 Gadais Muscadet de sevre & Maine Sur Lie
The Gadais have been specialising in making quality Muscadet since the early 1950’s.
Based in the village of St.Fiacre in the heart of the Sèvre et Maine district,
the Domaine aux Avineaux is aged on its lees for up to 6 months.
This traditional ‘sur lie’ maturation results in a Muscadet that is crisp and fresh
yet with a certain richness.
 Pale yellow colour, quite subtle on the nose, fresh and crisp on the palate but with a lovely roundness combined with a refreshing acidity.
Perfect with shellfish and seafood or as an aperitif.

2018 Domaine Bousquet Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
Malbec
Black fruit aromas are bold and friendly, but simple in a good way,
meaning the nose is open and uncomplicated. A dense, chewy palate is ripe and full,
while this Malbec tastes entirely of black fruits with a full finish

2018 Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Village
Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
Winemakers Notes:  This fruit-forward, juicy wine has expressive aromas and
flavours of strawberries and black cherries with spice notes.
Pair with hors d’oeuvres, mild cheeses or poultry dishes.

2017 Galil Mountain Kosher Cabernet Sauvignon
Israel
In the Upper Galilee, a wild mountainous region of forested slopes,
gorges, stony ridges and running streams, lie the vineyards of Galil Mountain Winery.
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes,
full-bodied with concentrated berry and plum notes,  layered with a hint of herbs.
Serve chilled with foods such as rich pasta or flavourful meat courses,
like grilled steak or lamb stew.

2017 Santa Vitoria Red Versatil
Alentejo, Portugal
Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Syrah
Aroma of red-berries and flowers.
Soft palate, elegant, with good persistence.
Ideal as an appetizer and / or to accompany meat, fat fish,
pasta, cheese and baked vegetables.

2015 Terra D’Alter Alicante Bouschet
Alentejo, Portugal
Terras d'Alter is in the Alto Alentejo region in the south of Portugal,
where the history of wine growing dates back to Roman times.
This extensive history, and a focus which remains largely on native Portuguese varietals,
is combined with the New World expertise of dynamic & enterprising winemaker Peter Bright,
an Australian making wine in Portugal since 1982.
This dark and intense red is marked by plums and prunes, silky and rich tannins,
and a long chocolate and vanilla finish.

2018 Vinahonda White
Jumilla, Spain
100% Macabeo
Pale yellow. In wine presents a clean and intense aroma, which is very balanced,
fruity and fresh due to their youth.

2017 Bottega Vinai Pinot Nero
Trentino, Italy
The colour is bright and light ruby at its core with more of a tawny hue when poured or swirled
like a red brick or rusty colour.
On the nose there is a crushed gravel minerality and hints of cherry cola,
which open into more savoury aromas of sun dried tomatoes, rhubarb and grilled plums.
Soft and light, the wine travels effortlessly across our palate with some cottony tannins and tongue smacking acidity.
There is less focus on fruit flavours here, instead we are finding garrigue notes of wild herbs, and earthy brush, walnut and bark.
The wine is dry and easy drinking, but is unique that it offers us more savoury and qualities.
Cherry pit and under ripe red plums flush out the finish with ease.
Have with pork tenderloin, or a fancier version of pork roulade
filled with dried fruits and cranberry sauce.

NV Reyes Red Monastrell
Jumilla, Spain
A name given to Mourvedre grapes grown in Spain,
Monastrell is a big wine with complex and deep flavours.
Primarily used in blending, Monastrell stands alone well as a delicious red.
Deeply colorued and highly tannic, this wine is perfect for those days when you want to drink something big.
Consider decanting when enjoying this wine.
This wines is sometimes described as “gamey”, making wild game a perfect pairing.
Also think grilled and/or herbed meats.
Avoid dishes with too much spice as the alcohol will make your mouth and throat burn.

2011 Aureola Red Gran Reserva
Do Tarragona, Italy
Tempranillo 50%, Garnacha 25%, Cariñena 25%
Deep garnet colour.  Its aroma reminds us of well-ripened black fruits,
with toasty notes and balsamic.
Silky on the palate, powerful, with fine dry tannins and a long aftertaste.
This wine pairs very well with blue cheese, game, red seasoned red meat (stews, roasts)
and dark chocolate.

2018 Pellehaut Harmonie Rouge
Côtes de Gascogne, Southwest France
25% Merlot - 25% Cabernet Sauvignon - 15% Tannat - 10% Malbec –
10% Pinot Noir - 8% Syrah - 7% Manseng noir

 hawthorn blossom and spices (coriander and cloves).
The palate is light with silky tannins. A wine to suit any dish.
