European Reds from Procure Liquor

Procure Liquor is an independent wine distribution company operated by Jonty Hamer and Misha Taylor, the two Auckland-based owners with considerable wine industry and hospitality experience and contacts. With a tight and strong portfolio of New Zealand and Australian wines, they have recently added a selection of European reds after "a very long search”. Here I review the new Spanish, Italian and French red wines, all sealed in screwcap. They are all fruit-driven and in the modern, well-ripened, sweet-fruited style with supple tannins and great approachability. These should prove to be very popular in the marketplace.
