JEREMIE HUCHET MELON MUSCADET SAUVIGNON – Sumptuous and refreshing and absolutely en-pointe for the coming months (cue; sunshine). Made from traditional Muscadet grape Melon de Bourgogne, showing that trademark touch of salinity we know and love, enlivened with a touch of Sauvignon blanc for added ‘lift’ and aromatic quality.
LOXAREL CORA XAREL-LO – Beautifully aromatic, intense, organic white wine. This is an excellent value mix of Muscat and Xarel-lo. Green fruit, pear and white peach mix with tropical notes of lycee and citrus on a dry and refreshing palate. The texture is very appealing and allows for some exciting seafood matches.
VENTA LA VEGA ADARAS VERDEJO SAUVIGNON – An organic Spanish white wine from the Almansa region using grapes from the high altitude Venta la Vega vineyards 850m above sea level. Clean and bright with a harmonious balance of the grapes, it shows aromas of tropical fruit and subtle notes of hair fruits.The palate brings balanced complexity and an intense, long, fresh finish.
IL FOLLE ORGANIC GRILLO – ‘Il Folle’ means ‘the mad one’ (think ‘the fool’ and it should become obvious!)– wild, gregarious and full of sun drenched Sicilian personality. This wine embodies the best of the Sicilian landscape and warm southern character, and is brimming with flavour and freshness. It’s made from hand picked Grillo grapes from the hills surrounding the town of Marsala. This wine seduces the palate with elegant aromas of exotic flowers and tropical fruits. Perfect with shellfish, calamari, white meat or just on it’s own!
MONTSABLE CHARDONNAY – This classic Burgundian variety has been produced in the sunny climate of Languedoc in the south of France. Although much warmer than the cool climate of the Cote d’Or great care has been taken to ensure that it is every bit as elegant. The nose is aromatic with yellow fruits and white flowers with just the faintest hint of vanilla. On the palate there is tremendous depth to the fruit which is supported by crisp acidity and an underlying minerality.
FABRIZIO VELLA BIANCO CATARATTO – A lively, fresh Cataratto from Sicily. Yes we know there are two Sicilians in this pack but they produce so many great Organic wines. This is a little box ticker, it’s Unfiltered, unfined and Vegan friendly, with ripe stone fruit notes and a slightly textured palate. A great wine for food matches.
