Our F+R Showcase has been created with one aim in mind: to combine six rare, premium wines, in the prime of their drinking window, in a single case. With no other merchant in the UK offering a collection case of this calibre and breadth, Showcase is the perfect opportunity to taste incredible wines that are usually all but impossible to acquire in single bottles.
HIGHLY-SCORED · INTENSELY RARE · READY-TO-DRINK
Priced at £299 per case duty paid (ex VAT and delivery), the six bottle, limited edition, carefully curated Showcase #1 contains one of each of the bottles described above. Immaculately packaged, as you can see below, this would make a perfect gift or an excellent opportunity to explore the world of fine wine. The case contains six individually wrapped bottles, two white and four red, and cellar tags introducing each wine, to ensure that these gems will not be lost within your collection. Each bottle is ready-to-drink and now virtually impossible to source elsewhere, the sixty cases produced will not hang around for long...
