The Last of the Summer Wine
Out of stock
Chill the rosé, pop the cap on the Pet Nat, put the Pineau on ice.
We’ve renewed, curated, and discounted, a mix of six of our summer favourites.
Davenport Vineyards, Pet Nat 2020
A new vintage of this ever-popular unfiltered and naturally sparkling wine from Will Davenport. Will is a multi-award winning winemaker, and a trailblazer for organic wines in the UK, and this is the essence of summer – fresh, yeasty, floral and fruity; and only 10.5% alcohol. Lemon, apple, quince £23.50
Valérie Courreges, Les Vent des Voiles rosé 2020
Some of you will remember Valérie’s work with Chateau Fontainebleau, with whom she recently parted ways to begin her own project in Provence. She made this dry blend of Grenache and Cinsault in small concrete tanks and amphorae, and it is aromatic, elegant, and appealingly rich. Raspberry, white pepper, minerality £19
Folias de Baco, Renegado 2020
A co-fermentation of over 20 indigenous red and white grape varieties. In (ever) warmer climates, co-fermenting red and white is a great way to create light and drinkable reds – this one is only 11.5%, despite coming from Portugal’s Douro region. Try it chilled. Redcurrant, plum, peach £18
Azul y Garanza, Naturaleza Salvaje 2019
Old vine Garnacha Blanca from Navarra, Spain. Made with a little skin contact, making the wine a pale shade of orange, and imbuing it with a richer mouthfeel. Winemakers Dani Sanchez and Maria Barrena also work hard to improve biodiversity and prevent soil erosion in an increasingly desertified area. Green apple, orange blossom, Seville orange £19.50
Richmond Plains, Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Refreshing Sauvignon from a small grower in Nelson, New Zealand. A cooler and moister climate than neighbouring Marlborough makes this easy on the passionfruit flavours, and big on the refreshing green touches. Greengage, lemon, gooseberry £15
David Ramnoux, Pineau des Charentes NV
Cult beverage from the South West of France, made by blending year old cognac with fresh grape juice, marrying the complexity of the former with the sweet freshness of the latter. Served chilled, it’s all too easy to forget that it’s 17.5% abv… Almond, apricot, sultana £23
