- ECLIPSE Limited Release NOCTURNAL #1 -- SOLD OUT --
- For the previous two years Winexpert has developed limited release wine kits for the ECLIPSE series. In 2015 they set the bar extremely high with the absolutely magnificent FORZA from Veneto, Italy and then followed it up in 2016 with the gorgeous Super Tuscan, BRAVADO, from Tuscany, Italy. This year, get ready for NOCTURNAL! Hailing from Languedoc France, Eclipse Nocturnal is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault harvested under the moonlit sky to create a captivating palate of plum, black raspberry and woodsmoke. We expect nothing less than the superior quality these wines have produced in the past. Just as this wine is available in limited quantities, so is oak barrel aging space. These Limited Release ECLIPSE wines have sold out very quickly both years and this year will be no different. Don't miss out, Reserve yours today!
- SELECTION Chilean Carmenère -- SOLD OUT --
- Chile is one of the foremost producers of Carmenère with it’s warm climate, long growing season, and fertile soils making ideal conditions for this grape. Described as "merlot with mystique", Carmenère is a synonym for brilliant red, ‘carmine’. With medium body and moderate tannins, this wine has a well structured mouthfilling texture, velvety on the tongue with very supple tannins. Drink with grilled beef, pizza, or dark chocolate. Only one batch remaining!
- ECLIPSE Limited Release NOCTURNAL #2 -- SOLD OUT --
- Nocturnal is a classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault with an unusual moonlit twist. The grapes were plucked from the vines in the cool of the night when sugar levels are more stable and acid levels are better. This results in a wine with richer flavour and aromatics. Nocturnal delivers complex spicy aromas with fruity plum and black raspberry on the palate, balanced with earthy woodsmoke. The full body and lush tannins make the finish just long enough to savour all the nuances in this gorgeous wine. Following in the footsteps of previous Limited Release wines, FORZA & BRAVADO, this wine is selling fast - our 2nd barrel is nearly sold out. You can expect supply to disappear quickly.
