The Rhône Rangers

You'll find a pair of six different wines in this case, all majoring on the Rhône’s classic Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre.

Equally at home in other hot, dry, challenging climates around the world, you'll be tasting super-fruity reds with that classic touch of pepper on the finish from the Rhône heartland to South Africa, Spain, and Australia.

Perfect for a barbecue (weather dependent), you'll also see how versatile these red wines are, lining up some choice options for autumn and winter's heartier meals inside.

Heroes of the red wine world, the Rhône Rangers are ever-reliable, never failing to come out on top.

It's a hearty "Hi-You, Syrah!" with the dozen Rhône Rangers from around the world in this case. Saving 15%, or £19.49, encounter our latest find, the brilliant Hubert Côtes du Rhône and 10 other impressive red wines

Hubert & Fils Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2018, Rhône

0 review(s)

We're always on the lookout for great value, reliable quaffing wines for our wine racks at home and France always seems to provide rich pickings. When we tasted this juicy estate-bottled Côtes du Rhône we were sure we'd found a future French favourite. This is a step up from most Côtes du Rhône wines and is smooth, fruity and very tasty.

The Producer

Hubert & Fils have been producing red Côtes du Rhône wines for years, so they really know a thing or two about winemaking. They prefer to bottle their wines in house, seeing production through from harvest to vinification, right through to bottling, which really is a sign of a conscientious producer.

Tartiflette

This rustic French bistrot-style dish of baked cheese, potato and bacon is just perfect with a classic French red wine like Hubert & Fils Côtes du Rhône Rouge, 2018. Full recipe

Duck Breast with Wild Mushrooms & Cream

The rich, fatty flavours of duck, combined with creamy mushrooms call for a soft, smooth red with fresh fruit flavours. Head to light or medium-bodied reds like the Raconteur Syrah. Full recipe

The Producer

The history of Carinena has been closely related with wine for many centuries and the reputation of its wines are now being recognised around the world. In 1415 when the King of Spain heard that Fernando 1 of Aragon was planning a trip to Nice he asked Fernando to take with him some of the wines from Carinena. In 2002 a new modern winery was built with state of the art facilities but keeping many of the good traditions of Spanish winemaking.

Spicy, rich stews need a medium bodied red with bright fruit flavours. Try a smooth Spanish red such as Monastrell. Full recipe

While it's delicious now, it will, like its French counterpart, improve with age: you could safely tuck it away in the cellar for six or seven years.'

Frikkadels: South African Meatballs

These South African spiced meatballs are an easy pairing for red wines - the beef and pork combination will suit most medium-bodied reds but head for Merlot or Syrah for the right combination of soft fruit and structure. The Edgebaston Syrah would be a real treat. Full recipe

The Producer

Willunga 100 takes its name from the 'Hundred', an administrative area of 100 sq miles formed in 1839, just three years after the settlement of South Australia, and now the source for most of the winery's fruit. The first vintage was in 2005, following the discovery of fifty year old Grenache vineyards in the McLaren Vale, which prompted the Willunga team to make this their main focus. The combination of low yields from very old vines all help to produce intense wines with great levels of fruit concentration.

Bright and tangy

this has the tang of Damson which accompanies Rabbit stew with a touch of Chorizo really well.

Best of the box

Tobacco, leather and bergamot nose; slightly bitter palate of dark fruits, not overly sweet and medium-heavy on the tannins. Went very well with a spicy Korean lamb dish (would also work with Greek, Spanish or Mexican - basically any heavily flavoured red meats). Love the bottle, love the wine.

Spain

This was a lovely surprise in my mixed case, a great full bodied woody red.
