The February Wine Pack…
this one has one eye on Spring and the other firmly set on pleasurable drinking.
6 wines to cheer you up and see us all through these last days before Spring. This month’s selection will take you though 6 wines from the new Semillion Petillant Naturel sparkling SPLASH, over that classic Portuguese spritzy Vinho Verde, via Jeremie Huchet’s extremely more-ish and minerally Sauvignon Melon, a juicy wee Merlot Cabernet from Romania and finishes with 2 very different Southern French Syrah from Christophe Barbier and Christophe Muret.
Great wines to have in the house when you fancy a glass of something unique and delicious!
SPLASH SPARKLING PET NAT: A pretty, vibrant, 9% pet nat made with no sulphur additions from 30 year old Semillon vines. Herbal citrus fruit galore, with lemon, lime and a touch of honeysuckle.
ADEGA DE MONCAO VINHO VERDE: The Vinho Verde pictured has unfortunately sold out so we have swapped it in for another excellent example of this fresh spritzy wine from Portugal ‘Adega de Moncao’. This white has a lovely floral, citrus character & bright lemon acidity with that signature petillance we love.
JEREMIE HUCHET SAUVIGNON BLANC MELON – 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.
CHRISTOPHE MURET SYRAH – A bright, ripe Languedoc Syrah. Violet, mocha, blackberry on the nose and gently spicy, mineral and long in the palate.
SOLARA MERLOT CABERNET SAUVIGNON – Made with no Sulphur additions, this ripe and juicy red is chocca block packed full of bramble fruit notes with raspberry and blackberry dominating the aroma, smooth and juicy with complex notes of blueberry and moderate acidity and smooth tannins on the finish.
CHRISTOPHE BARBIER CABANES ROUGE – Full bodied Grenache, Syrah, Merlot. Bright red fruit leads on to an earthy gripping palate with chocolate and spice notes.
