"Yeah, I Was About To Tell You To DRINK Up." ...
12 mixed bottles (2 bottles of each) - £155.00
Plaimont Producteurs, Le Manseng Noir – South West France
100% Manseng Noir cuvee first exhibits a nose of violets, then an astonishing balance on the palate and a moderate richness in alcohol underscored by a fantastic acidity.
Hacienda La Parrilla, El Pinto Palomino - San José del Valle, Cádiz, Spain
From Palomino, the grape that brought you fino sherry, an unfortified version made from organic grapes that is oh-so-drinkable. Easy apple fruit, skin and flesh, and then a palate that is slightly crunchy, saline and herbal. A winner with anchovies, fried food and roast peppers.
Valli Unite, Marmote - Piedmont, Italy
A delicious medley of red berries with earthy forest floor and dry, well-integrated tannins.
Domaine Jeandaugé, Franche Lippée VDF - South-West France
Inky-dark, almost purple-black-hued very pure Syrah from Gascony with a wonderfully deep nose of pureed blackberries and smoked beetroot and a thick-fruited palate with flavours of wild hedgerow berries backed by impressively ripe tannins. For grilled food and roast game.
Little Pomona, Harvest – England
Slight funk on the nose but underneath bright yellow fruit and flowers. The fresh, citrus vibe of Browns Apple tames any overt sense of the barrels and lifts the intense fruit richness of the late season apples. In the end it’s bright, juicy and full of ripe fruit. It’s fully reminiscent of the tastes, smells and feelings of warm orchard days and the long shadows of harvest time. Drink cold. Not frozen.
Domaine Thierry Navarre, Terret – Languedoc Roussillon, France
Salty, aromatic, citrus, structure, no oak, fabulous to drink.
