Takeaway Special Mixed Case (6 bottle)
Six carefully selected wines each paired perfectly with your favourite takeaway foods.
What you'll find in the box:
Something for your pizza - Azienda Agricols Pra Prà Morandina Valpolicella
It had to be an Italian but rather that the more obvious Chianti we've gone for a vibrant, fragrant Valpolicella packed with intensity yet delicacy from the low yields of the Morandina vineyards. Bright red berry aromas with notes of wild thyme lead to a fresh, sappy wine with layers of raspberry leaf, liquorice and cherry. It's acidity holds up to that tomato sauce and cuts through the fat of the cheese.
12% ABV / VEGETARIAN / VEGAN /SUSTAINABLE
For your fish and chips - Litmus Wines Element 20
Complex, mature, elegant and stylish, this is a super interesting English still wine. Silky and rich but with a beautiful backbone of acidity that acts like squeezing a slice of lemon onto your fish.
With your Indian - Chateau de Coulaine Chinon Rouge
Indian is big bold and spicy. Enter Cab Franc. You'll find flavours and aromas of cherries, red paprika, chili powder, redcurrants, earth and a pleasant green bell pepper finish (which this grape is famous for). All that wrapped up in a package of balanced acidity and controlled tannins meaning the spice doesn't kill it. A real sensory overload for the tastebuds.
Pop with some fried chicken - Castell d'Or Cossetania Brut Reserva NV
Sparkling wine and fried chicken is a match made in culinary heaven. Not just any sparkling wine though. You need something fresh enough to cut through the acidity but aged on the lees long enough to imbue that lovely bready characteristic to match the batter. Sure, a vintage Champagne will do very nicely but for value we avoid entry level Champagne which can be a bit bland and instead recommend this stunning, award-winning Cava.
Try with Thai - Weingut Messmer Riesling vom Schiefer einzig & artig
We acknowledge that there's a lot of scary German words in the wine's titles but there's nothing scary about the wine in the bottle. This is a beautiful, refreshing riesling that's going to hold up to all the acidity in Thai food and has enough aromatics to add flavour to the equation.
Pour with a burger - Alpha Box & Dice, Enigma, Barbera
The mighty burger, with all it's accompanying sauces, sides and toppings makes for a surpassingly tricky wine pairing. Barbera makes a wonderful bedfellow. Originating in the hills of Piedmont, it’s high in acid, low in tannin, tricky in the vineyard and tricky in the winery. Alpha Box & Dice have taken the grape out of its homeland and grown it down under in Adelaide Hills. Intense candied wild berries, subtle vanilla oak and a touch of rhubarb hold up to the fruitiness of ketchup while stewed plums bring out the meatiness of your patty. Mouthwatering.
