Red Single Varieties

The red single variety category was diverse in both grapes and countries of origin. This is not where you’ll find the classic French grapes you might know and love. Instead, it is a category for exploration and discovery… and if you venture in, you’ll be rewarded with awesome examples of quality for value! There were good offerings across the board, everything from bobal to monastrell, nebbiolo, nero d’Avola, pinotage and carmenere. The best reward with great fruit density, nice complexity and balanced tannins – consider a decant and bbq fare for the biggest of the bunch.
