Few holidays evoke the pure indulgence of the humble Easter Sunday. A day where you can eat as much chocolate as you want with no judgement, and the cheaper the better. Perhaps it’s time to upgrade. With this, we propose the case for red wine. Not that you’ll need much convincing. After all, red wine and chocolate practically go hand in hand. But let’s make it a tradition we say.

Nothing quite says grown-up happiness like a large glass of red and here at Drinks21 we have a good the selection:

ERRAZURIZ PINOT NOIR An attractive cherry-red colour, on the nose this Pinot Noir displays a nice aromatic intensity that evokes cherries, floral notes, and an earthy, minty tone. Crisp and refined on the palate, with a fruity character intermingled with smoky notes from the barrel aging. A well-rounded wine with good persistence and an enjoyable finish.

TRIVENTO RESERVE MALBEC This Malbec features a plum and raspberry jam aromas blended with vanilla notes which come from the French Oak Barrels where the wine has been aged. To taste this wine has an intense violet hue flavours and a velvety finish.

CONO SUR BICICLETA PINOT NOIR A fresh, voluptuous Pinot with rich notes of cherry, blackberries and plum together with a balanced, ripe palate.

D'ARENBERG THE CADENZIA Intense red cherry appearance when poured suggests a full bodied complex dry red. Intense red cherry, cranberry, kirsch notes appear with a subtle background of pepper, stone fruit kernels and nutty spiced oak. The palate is full and lush dominated with red fruits intertwined with meaty potpourri characters, savoury dry herb notes and rounded soft tannins balanced with silky acidity.

 

So, cheers to you this Easter with a chunk of chocolate egg in one hand and a glass of Pinot Noir in the other. If you’re still not convinced, why not check out the rest of our wine selection, all available for super-fast delivery.
