Brad's Wine Subscription Tasting Notes - October 2022

”I have been inspired to work with small, family-owned wineries because in my experience, they produce the best value wines that you can find. These wines are hand-crafted - they have a story about where they are from and how they are made - and it is these wines that I send out every month to our subscribers, wines with beautiful details that I enjoy sharing with people."

Wine buying made simple from only £49 / €54 for 6 bottles with free UK and EU delivery 🍷

October 2022 Free Gift . Borneo Charity Key Ring
This October, in partnership with the Borneo Wildlife Preservation, we are sending out hand-made key rings, made in Borneo to help build awareness for this fantastic charity, that protects endangered Borneo pygmy elephants.


Fattoria Teatina FA‘BENE 2021 Trebbiano d’Abruzzo . Italy
Straw-yellow with fine white stone fruit aromas and fruit-driven palate, this boutique white is elegant and clean and an excellent match for aperitif foods - serve with fresh cheese, white meats and light fish dishes.

Tagua Tagua 2021 Chardonnay . Chile
Golden yellow colour. Notes of tropical fruits (pineapple and mango) plus an interesting touch of fresh apple. The palate is soft, but with good body and great acidity. Lightly oaked, this is excellent with roast chicken and pork.

Navarra Pleno 2021 Blanco . Spain
The pleasantly light white from northern Spain shows a straw yellow colour in the glass. Pleasant bouquet of tropical fruits; refreshing acidity on the palate. Goes very well with fish dishes. Well chilled, a perfect white!


Fattoria Teatina 2021 Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo . Italy
Soft cherry red in colour, this beautifully fresh rosé wine has aromas of cherry and strawberry with fresh acidity on the palate. Great for aperitif or with pizza, with light meat dishes and fish soup.


Tagua Tagua 2021 Carmenere . Chile
Intense ruby red. Soft floral aromas and herbal tones, red fruits and vanilla on the palate. The wine is fresh and delicate with firm tannins and a clean finish. With oak ageing, this wine suits heavier meat dishes.

Fattoria Teatina FA‘BENE 2020 Montepulciano d‘Abruzzo . Italy
Ruby red in colour, this fantastic boutique red wine exudes aromas of red fruits, blue raspberry and violet. There are hints of cherry and red fruit on the pallet and can be lightly chilled before serving with barbecued meat or pasta.

Navarra Pleno Tempranillo 2020 . Spain
Brilliant dark cherry red. The bouquet is characterized by typical fruit aromas from Spain's noble grape variety Tempranillo (strawberries and raspberries), but also sour cherries and spices; full-bodied on the palate. Goes very well with rustic meat dishes, but can also be combined with grilled poultry.
