The clocks have gone back. The nights are getting darker. And it’s starting to get a bit chilly outside.
When it’s dark and cold outside, there’s nothing better than getting comfortable in front of the TV with a glass of red wine.
If you’re already a fan of red wine, you probably already have your own ‘go to’ bottles that you regularly pick up from the supermarket.
But why not take the time during the cold winter season to experiment a little and see if you can find yourself a new favourite?
At BonCru, we make it easy to discover new wine and have it conveniently delivered to your door.
To help you expand your red wine repertoire, we’ve put together a list of some favourites from our collection that you might not find in the supermarket.
Cape Heights Cabernet Sauvignon: £7.99, 13.5% ABV
This impressive Cabernet Sauvignon comes from 25-year old vines in the Western Cape - one of South Africa's premium wine regions.
We’re big fans of Cape Heights Cabernet Sauvignon at BonCru – it’s hard not to enjoy the taste of a wine that is full of berry fruit flavours with subtle hints of chocolate.
It's a rich, robust wine that will keep you coming back for more. There’s no wonder it’s secured several awards.
So, if you’re looking for a new Cabernet to enjoy by the fire this Autumn/Winter season, we highly recommend giving this a look.
Gauchezco Estate Malbec: £11.49, 13.5% ABV
If you're a Malbec lover, you've got to try this one.
The Gauchezco Estate Malbec is an intense and flavour-packed red wine from the esteemed Mendoza region in Argentina.
With its deep, rich flavours of plum and raspberry, it's a wine that will pair perfectly with any red meat dishes or can be enjoyed just by itself.
Los Pastos Merlot: £7.99, 11.5% ABV
The sun-drenched vineyards of the Valle Central region of Chile are the perfect environment for growing healthy, ripe grapes to create an exquisite Merlot like this wine from Los Pastos.
Los Pastos Merlot is a medium-bodied red wine that is soft and fruity. It’s packed with plenty of succulent berry flavours, as well as a subtle hint of cinnamon spice.
If you’re looking for a new favourite Merlot to enjoy in the warmth of your front room, or pair with a hearty poultry or red meat dish – look no further than Los Pastos. You won’t be disappointed.
Sileni Cellar Selection Pinot Noir: £11.59, 13% ABV
If you’re partial to a lighter-bodied red wine, the Sileni Cellar Selection Pinot Noir is a wine you should try.
Grown in the Hawkes Bay area of New Zealand, this distinctive Pinot Noir has aromas of jam and almonds – the aroma reminds us of a Bakewell tart!
It’s light, fresh and bright on the palate and is the perfect red wine to accompany salmon or tuna dishes, charcuterie boards or crispy duck pancakes.
Angove Organic Shiraz/Cabernet: £10:39, 14.5% ABV
If you’re looking for something a little bit different, try this blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from McClaren Vale in South Australia.
The Angove Organic Shiraz/Cabernet has an impressive deep purple hue, and the aromas of red berries are immediately tantalising.
The flavours of raspberries, red cherries and a hint of pepper are delicious and make this blend incredibly moreish.
Certified as organic and vegan friendly, we’d definitely recommend getting this blended red wine on your list of new bottles to try.
