This case starts with two ancient winemaking regions that we love - Georgia and Greece. The Saperavi is berried, soft and delicately spiced, while the barrel-aged Agiorgitiko from Monemvasia is complex, savoury, nutty and a great match to roast meats. The Oumsiyat Merlot is from the slopes of Mount Lebanon and is packed full of ripe fruit and super-soft on the finish, perfect for most occasions. Bodega Tandem grow vines in cooler areas of Navarra, next door to Rioja. A blend that spends two years in concrete, followed by nine months in oak, this is a "minimal inervention" wine with a beautiful texture - Bordeaux meets Rioja, but completely different at the same time. The Undurraga Cabernet Franc stood out from the moment we first tasted it - really intense darks fruit, perfumed and sweetly spiced, this wine has an amazing depth and drinkability. Finally we visit Uruguay, with a juicy, peppery, unaoked blend, lighter in style thanks to the cooling influence of the Atlantic.
