Carinae

Mendoza, Argentina

Frenchman Philippe Subra, with his wife Brigitte, came to Argentina as the national boss of EDF, the French energy giant - but loved the country so much he cleverly bought some long-established vineyards and settled there, on the south side of Mendoza. He has built a small cellar - boutique indeed, whilst wholly lacking the pretension that word implies!

Carinae, Cuvée Philippe, Mendoza, 2017

A sumptuous, lightly oaked blend of thirds of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Each grape brings something special to the party: the Malbec blackberry juiciness; the Cabernet sharp blackcurrant; and the Syrah a blueberry note. As a whole it's tinged with oak spice from the barrels and shows really classy aromatics. Not a blockbuster, this is bold but elegant - perfect with roast or grilled beef or lamb. Now-2022

Owner Philippe Subra named one wine after his wife, Brigitte, long before he created this eponymous blend!

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
