To all Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon wine lovers out there, we
have got a treat for you. For those who have not heard about Winebox Inc.,
we are a premium wine subscription service in Malta who deliver handpicked
to customer’s home on a monthly basis.


Whether it is choosing wine at a supermarket or on a wine-list at a restaurant,
choosing wine is overwhelming for most. Majority of the time people end up
either getting the same bottle of wine over and over, or experiment with new
wines and sometimes are left disappointed.


Our mission at Winebox Inc is to solve that problem, let us do all the research
and you can enjoy four bottles of premium hand picked wine, packaged in a
box and with information on what food to pair it with.


This month, the wine theme is Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon from
Chile, New Zealand and South Africa so you’re all in for a treat. Here are
some of the wines to be delivered:

 

SAUVIGNON BLANC SERIES PRIVEE, FLEUR DU CAP, DARLING - SOUTH AFRICA

👀This wine is brilliantly clear with a green tint

👃 Crisp aromas of fig leaves, gooseberries, asparagus with traces of delicate tropical fruit. 

👅The palate is rich and full-bodied with a blend of herbaceous and tropical fruit ending in a lovely long, smooth finish. 

Food pairing: Dishes such as green curries, summer salads with young asparagus tips and green figs or Parma ham pair ideally with this Sauvignon Blanc. The zippy acidity is the perfect complement to seafood, especially oysters.

 

SAUVIGNON BLANC MARLBOROUGH, MR BEN GLOVER, MARLBOROUGH - NEW ZEALAND

A delicious and lingering fruit finish makes this a wine to be savoured and enjoyed. 

 

👀 Pale straw with green and gold hues. 

👃 The vibrant bouquet of melon and grapefruit is expertly balanced
with the herbaceous aroma’s so typical of this grape varietal. 

👅 The bouquet gives way to a palate defined by guava and citrus flavours with finely integrated acidity giving a refreshing succulence and mouthfeel.

 

Food pairing:

Highly recommended with vegetarian food, goat cheese and shellfish.

 

SAUVIGNON BLANC, TWO OCEANS, WESTERN CAPE - SOUTH AFRICA

 

👀Bouquet wine, brilliant with a green tint.

👃Tropical fruit with an abundance of passion fruit and sweet
lemon aromas. 

👅An elegant wine with a crisp acidity, offering a bounty of passion fruit, green apple and sweet melon flavours.

 

Food pairing: An ideal sipping wine, it is also excellent served with fish, pasta and poultry dishes.

 

SAUVIGNON BLANC 'RESERVA CLASSIC', VINA MONTES, CASABLANCA VALLEY - CHILE

 

The wine is fresh and entertaining with a long finish that is very much in line with its expression on the nose.

 

👀 Brilliant pale yellow in colour with glints of green. 

👃The intense and cheerful nose offers aromas of fresh citrus, like lime and pink grapefruit, accompanied by notes of pineapple and fresh white peach. 

👅A faint greenness in the background is evidence of its coastal origins. The palate has a naturally well-balanced acidity; it’s crunchy but with a rounded sensation on the midpalate.

 

 

Pairing: Highly recommended with sushi, Cesar salad, ceviche, garlic shrimp, grilled Mahi-Mahi, pasta primavera, seafood chowder and lemon chicken.

 

red wine cabernet soveignon

CABERNET SAUVIGNON ALPHA, MONTES, COLCHAGUA VALLEY - CHILE

 Generous volume on the mid-palate of our 2017 Montes. Alpha delivers a lasting and elegant finish.

 

👀Deep ruby-red in colour, with violet tones. 

👃The nose is elegant and complex with aromas of very well-blended ripe red and black fruit. Aromas of crème de cassis, tobacco, and black pepper stand out against a backdrop of toast and pastry notes. 

👅The palate is smooth but well-structured, which makes this wine a pleasure to drink now, but with years of cellaring potential ahead of it. Its round and near-sweet tannins balance very well with the acidity.

 

Food pairing: Highly recommended with red meats, Mongolian
beef, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lamb chops with Cabernet and mushroom sauce.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON ALL ROUNDER, IAN BOTHAM, SOUTH EASTERN AUSTRALIA

 

👀Bright, ruby-red with intense glints of violet.

👃The nose opens with notes of red and black fruit like plum and blackberry, together with spice, red pepper and nutmeg, which then give way to some tobacco, dark chocolate and coffee. 

👅 The well-balanced and enveloping texture allows you to appreciate the freshness
of the red fruit on the palate, with rounded and refined tannins that give way to a long, deep finish.

 


Food pairing: Highly recommended with stir-fried beef, pork chops, spaghetti bolognese, lamb chops and mushroom risotto.

 

CABERNET SAUVIGNON, OBIKWA, STELLENBOSCH / PAARL - SOUTH AFRICA

 

👀Deep ruby-red in colour

👃Ripe red berry fruit aromas with hints of oak spice. 

👅Full-bodied with a juicy palate brimming with red berry fruit and subtle oak spice flavours. Firm tannins ensure that the palate has some muscle.

 

Food pairing: Great with steaks, beef stroganoff, winter casseroles and stews, roasts, veal
and even robust poultry dishes and mature cheeses.
