You can buy and drink this now but we advise you age it. Will drink great by Christmas this year (open it a bit before you drink him), ace by 2020 winter and amazing by 2024 winter.


Wine: Vern

Who is Vern? Vern works in accounts for a well known and exceptional East London based coffee roaster and lives in Whitechapel.  


Grape: 65% Merlot/35% Cabernet Sauvignon


Vintage: 2017


Grape Source: Coastal Central Albania


Made: Albania & Bethnal Green, UK


Tasting Notes: Think rightbank Bordeaux. Kinda. This wine is nothing like you’d expect from Albanian grapes.  Silky, balanced tannins, blackcurrant, spice, a super complex and evolving wine that can age as well as any premium Bordeaux. 


Really good now, will be awesome by end 2019, super wonderful by 2020, and beyond exceptional from 2024 onwards.  Drink or keep, both work!
