'The Mongrel': It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

When you create a mongrel that has its heart from Italy, it’s bark from Spain and the wag of its tail from France, you might be expecting a breed that has been designed by a committee. However this wine manages to bring the varieties and flavours from these countries into a package that punches well above its weight. With an old world understanding that wine should be loved and enjoyed with food, the Sangiovese cherry flavours, combined with its tannin structure and natural acidity create a wine that brims with interest and a sense of life. Add to this the Flamenco passion of Spain (Tempranillo) and the historically subtle style of France (Merlot) and the result is a wine that jumps out of the glass and sings in your mouth.
This 'Mongrel' will leave the pack chasing their tails. Get it for yourself here.
