Do you love great wine, good value for money and delicious hearty winter meals? We certainly do. In between the bizarre summer days, it is still grey, rainy and cold and wintery. So we thought you might like to win 1 of 6 cases of gorgeous Van Loveren wine to enjoy with the last of your favourite wintery dinners! (Recipes here!)
Van Loveren wine is renowned for its wide appeal, whether you’re after an easy-drinker or a more complex heavyweight-in-a-bottle. The colder weather provides the perfect reason to stock up on Van Loveren… Their red wines in particular.
Associated with comforting warmth, red wine is the best partner to rich and flavoursome winter dishes. Think hearty stews and roast meats. Or tomato-based pastas and wholesome bakes… And rich cheese and even richer desserts. That’s apart from red wine being the perfect accompaniment to snuggling by the fireplace, relaxing in a steaming hot Jacuzzi and celebrating friendships. While you indulge in the last of your favourite things to do as Spring decides whether or not it is here to stay, do it with a glass of the perfect red!
There are some awesome wines in this range, including:
VAN LOVEREN BLEND COMPRISING 60% CABERNET SAUVIGNON AND MERLOT
This full-bodied, complex, elegant wine acquired notes of fruit-cake and tobacco from oak maturation. There are also aromas of cigar box, dark chocolate, eucalyptus and mint. The palate is smooth and lingers with every sip. Enjoy by itself or with lamb made with rosemary and garlic, venison, turkey, Irish stew, BBQ Chops, rare roast beef or roast chicken.
VAN LOVEREN BLUE VELVET PINOT NOIR
This Pinot Noir is a former Michelangelo International Wine Awards gold-medal winner. The wine now shows prominent fruit flavours of raspberries and cranberries, with earthy tones and cherries that linger in the finish. It’s particularly ideal with lamb, creamy white cheese, cottage pie and Rogan Josh.
VAN LOVEREN BLACKBERRY CABERNET SAUVIGNON / SHIRAZ
A harmonious blend of Caberney Sauvignon and Shiraz. The wine has an appealing ruby red colour with soft plum and ripe summer berry flavours followed by a round finish. A food-friendly wine that really sings with roast meat dishes, pork, lamb and green bean stew, venison, ham, duck and cheese.
VAN LOVEREN AFRICAN JAVA PINOTAGE
Smooth and lightly-oaked, this one has an intense aroma of roasted coffee beans. It has flavours of vibrant plum and ripe berry fruit, with smokey mocha-java in the aftertaste. It is the perfect partner to hearty red meat dishes such as OssoBucco. Also try it with venison, lamb, barbecues, curry, game birds, spare ribs or red bean soup.
VAN LOVEREN MERLOT
Lightly oaked wine with soft strawberry and vanilla notes on the nose and a rich fruity palate with balanced tannins that ensures easy drinking. The merlot enhances stews, chargrilled chicken, venison, lamb, red meat dishes, smoked meats and flavourful cheeses.
VAN LOVEREN MUSCADEL
Made from Muscat de Frontignan grapes, this full-sweet, fortified wine has abundant flavours of raisin and muscat. It rolls easily across the palate, concluding in an opulent and lingering finish. Enjoy every warming sip on its own, with cheese and fruit, or with a decadent baked chocolate pudding.
