The Oddbins Take

Altogether now, “Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby! Ahhhaaaa-aaaahhhh. Do you do you do you need it?” Yes, Kaiser Chiefs. The answer is yes. You do need it. But this wine’s beguiling, shiny, ruby-red colour is only part of the story and there are three more reasons why you need Mirambelo in your life. 1) the Christmassy, spicy dried fruits. 2) the warm, vanilla-laced charm and 3) it will turn you from a mere mortal into an immortal demi-god (but only if you drink it on a full moon).

Henry Jeffreys of The Lady Magazine 21/11/14: "From Crete, this is an old Oddbins favourite. It smells of cherry drops with a little leather. It tastes mature and has a slightly nutty finish like a port but with plenty of freshness."
In Kounavi, a village that lies in the heart of the appellation zone of Peza, Crete, has a long history of winemaking and takes its name from the ancient wine-presses, “Kanaves”, that are found on the islands of the Archipelago. Mediterra themselves have been making wine from the island’s indigenous grape varieties since 1973.
