Carefully selected wines that we know will offer you a great drinking experience
European Wine Collective is Backed by 20 years of on-line wine sales experience
This 6-pack contains HALF BOTTLES of reds from Italy, France and Spain. Wine reviewer Andrew Graham described half bottles perfectly when he wrote
"375ml bottles work out as just over one glass of wine per person, which really is the perfect amount for mid week drinking and ideal if you’re having a glass by yourself".
We reckon this is the best 6-pack offer of half bottles you'll see all year. There's a mixture of big brands and small producers.
This European Red Half Bottle 6-pack contains one bottle each of the following wines:
Peppoli Chianti Classico 2017
Ruby red in color, the Peppoli is characterized by notes of cherries and raspberries, and the aromatic profile is completed by nuances of violets and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is tasty and balanced with lively acidity, a characteristic of Sangiovese-based wines. The fruity notes and the spices of the oak dominate the finish and aftertaste. The wine is soft in its tannins and long and lingering on the finish..
Domaine Faiveley Pinot Noir 2016
This wine has fresh, red-fruit aromas on the nose, which appear again on the palate. It has rich and very ripe substance, with fine round tannins. It’s a very well-structured Pinot Noir.
Guigal Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge 2015
"As usual, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone features a majority of Syrah, largely sourced from the western side of the Rhône. Spicy, peppery, hickory aromas lead off, adding berries up front and then moving into darker fruit and more savory notes of black olive by the finish. This medium to full-bodied wine finishes long and silky, avoiding any of the vintage's hard tannins, while still boasting the concentration to drink well through at least 2023." 91 Points. Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
Isole e Olena Chianti Classico 2016
The Chianti Classico has a crimson colour with typical sour cherry and bramble notes. The palate has a supple, lithe character full of perfumed fruit and is given depth by a mineral vein. Structure comes from the taut acidity and tannin structure.
Château Loudenne Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux 2012
"With vineyards close to the Gironde, this is a well-situated château. This 2012 is one of the best from the property for several years, giving ripe tannins, balanced wood and good black currant acidity. It's not for long-term aging, so drink from 2017." Wine Enthusiast
Torres Sangre de Toro Garnacha 2015
Deep cherry red in color. Fruit aromas of wild blackberries with notes of ripe dried plums and roasted coffee. An intense, warm and succulent palate with an echo of licorice on the finish.
