Slurp is delighted to continue helping you on your hunt for perfect gifts this Christmas. This week, we are proud to introduce some new Wine Gift Set duos to our range, which all come packaged in Slurp’s wooden presentation box with straw filling. From a Burgundy Duo fit for a Duke, to a pair of Marlborough Icons, we have the perfect gifts to impress even the most discerning of tastes. Perhaps even too good to give away..?
Prestige Bordeaux Gift Set – £48
Two of Slurp’s favourite Bordeaux wines; reasonably priced, consistently good, and brimming with Bordeaux sophistication.
Château Soussans Margaux 2012 – Irresistibly soft and silky, with strawberry jam on the nose, and ripe plum and cream on the palate. Seductive, elegant and timeless – this fine Margaux will only improve over the next few years.
Chateau La Tour de By 2010 Cru Bourgeois Médoc – “sweet, ripe black fruits on the nose. Solid, fruity, dense with gravelly chew…Very nice expression of place and time.’ – 16.5pts, Jancis Robinson
The Duke’s Duo Gift Set – £47
Previously owned by the first Duke of Burgundy, this prestigious estate produces two of Slurp’s bestselling Burgundy whites and reds.
Château de Santenay Mercurey 1er Cru Les Puillets 2014 – “crushed blueberries and red plum notes with…earthy hints and vanilla spice…dark cherries and violets ooze from the ripe, smooth palate” – 95pts, Decanter World Wine Awards
Château de Santenay Mercurey Blanc 2012 – A beautifully aromatic, Gold Medal winning wine, with abundant fresh fruit and fantastic balance and texture.
FDR1 Vertical Gift Set – £60
A perfect opportunity to experience this award-winning wine at different stages of its development. Arguably Australian Cabernet Shiraz at its very best.
Yalumba FDR1A Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz 2012 – Crème de cassis, violets, dark chocolate, menthol and cedar…medium to full-bodied and structured, showing muscular fruit, great expression and great length.” – 91pts, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
FDR1A Museum Release 2005 – “blackcurrant cordial, dried mulberries and preserved plums with nuances of incense, loose tobacco and cedar. Medium-bodied, ripe, expressive and wonderfully mature” – 93pts, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Icons of Marlborough Gift Set – £42
This set features two iconic Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand, both with the trademark Marlborough zing.
Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016 – Innovation, meticulous attention to detail and regional expression are the guiding principles of Cloudy Bay. The nose is bright with aromas of kaffir lime and grapefruit, leading to a generous palate of ripe citrus, stone fruit and lemongrass, with a striking minerality.
Greywacke Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016 – The brain-child of Kevin Judd, ex-chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay. This wine takes New Zealand Sauvignon to the next level with its musky fusion of sweet scented nectarines, peaches and orange zest, with balanced acidity and a generously ripe and succulent palate.
