London Sparkling 2016 - Blanc de Noirs: The One. The Only. The Cream of The Cream. The only vintage English sparkling wine fully made in London. Words can't describe the incrediblness of this wine. Only 800 bottles ever made and only 81 left (as at 4th June 2020). Suffolk grown Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, pressed in a wooden basket press, fermented using wild yeasts in French oak, aged on lees in the bottle in the crypt of Christ Church Spitalfields (The tall, amazing Hawksmoor one) before being riddled and disgorged by hand. Only 5g/L added at dosage stage. Corked and caged by hand. This was a massive labour of love. The 2017/18/19 versions are still in bottle and will be for a while......
Marsha - Castelao Nat Fiz 2019 - A Naturally Fizzy style of sparkling wine (unlike Champagne, Prosecco, Cava and Cremant) which undergoes the first and only fermentation in the bottle. No added anything. No sulphur, no yeast, no fining, no filtration, no nothing. Just grapes. Fruity, off dry, unusal aromas of ripe banana. Get it while you can, due to how hard this wine was to make, we won't be making her again!
Sara - Essex Chardonnay 2019 - This is what England should be making more of. Premium, unusual, balanced acidity, structured, sessionable and soft oak. Nee Hungarian oak and old French oak barrel fermented and aged. Very moreish. Unfiltered and unfined like all....
Jai - Skin Contact Ortega 2019 - Gloucester grown, full ferment on skins, using only wild yeasts. Very aromatic. Textured and floral. A punchy skin contact wine, but very clean and approachable. Secondary French oak aged, but not oaky.
Josh - 2019 Sangiovese - Chianti but not. Softer and ligher and more aromatic. Puglian grown, aromatic, soft, approachable, fruity, gentley oaked London style of this Italian classico.
Vern - Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 - Right bank Bordeaux in style via an organic (non-certified) vineyard in Albania. Yes, you read that right. The quailty of the grapes were unbelievable. Wild fermented and aged in New Chestnut, New French oak and ex-Bourbon casks this is a stunning, massive, strctured, big lad of a wine. Will drink well now and age for donkeys years. Oh Vern!
