Curious Wines of particular intrigue…
In selecting our ‘curious wines’, our mission was simple. To find wines which are out of the ordinary, incredibly interesting and above all dangerously delicious. Feel free to ask the team for their recommendation.
GUERILA, PINELA & ZELEN, 2018 (O) (BIO) – Slovenia
The aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, citrus fruits and dried flowers in the background. A charming full-bodied wine with an emphasis on freshness and a distinct minerality.
SEMILLION, MOTHER ROCK, 2019 (O) (VG) (MI) (BIO) – South Africa
Zesty, with white stones and white stone fruits, some herbal hints too – a bit funk but a whole lot of fun. A thirst quenching apéritif, light and energetic – yet a powerful, intensity of fruit and minerality abounds.
CIELLO BIANCO, CATARRATTO, 2018 (O) – Italy
Organic, hazy, unfiltered, fruity. 5 out of 5 on the funky scale, this little natural white wine has bags of fresh tropical fruits, lemon pith, grapefruit and southern olive oil texture.
GRAN CERDO VIANCO, VIURA (O) (VG) (MI) – Spain
Pale colour, very fresh with good acidity, like a crisp green apple from the Viura. The slightly floral nose comes from the myriad of experimental white varieties in the blend.
LUNARIA ORSOGNA, 2019/20 (O) (VG) (BIO) – Italy
Imagine, Italy in 500 AD and seeing people drinking a cloudy, orange/pink sparkling wine that tastes of red berries, ripe peach & pear. Lunaria Orsogna is Pinot Grigio, aged on its yeast, left unfiltered and allowed to double ferment. This is an ancient method ‘Pet Nat Brut’. Wonderful and definitely not Prosecco.
VINA ZORZAL, SEA OF DREAMS, GARNACHA, (O) (VG) (BIO) – Spain
Clove, black fruit, followed by soft cherry and ripe fruit aromas. The palate is soft, yet full-bodied and powerful, with a long, balanced, and attractive aftertaste. A steaks best friend.
GARNACHA, SYRAH, EL RISCO CATALAYUD, BOBAL, 2019, (VG) (MI) – Spain
Pronounced plum, raspberry and herbs. Complex notes of spice and leather. Medium body with fine ripe tannins. Wild berries give way to a smooth spicy finish.
MIXED BLEND, BLANK BOTTLE, MASTER OF NONE, 2020 (MI) (R) – South Africa
Curious blend of red and white grapes, and a great summer red. Think of it as a South African upstarts take on Cru Beaujolais. Super bright and juicy, with wild strawberry, cherry and an earthy, smoky undercurrent. Like other wines in this style this can be served slightly chilled.
FINCA DINAMIA BUENALMA, MALBEC, (O) (VG) (MI) (BIO) – Argentina
Deep ruby in colour with a rustic nose of brambles, dried herbs and cloves, the palate is full bodied with concentrated black fruits, mocha, black olives and a slight spicy pepper note on the finish.
(VG) – VEGAN
Most winemakers will use animal products such as egg white to help clarify wines. Vegan wines are basically wines that have not come into contact with anything derived from an animal or dairy source.
(MI) – MINIMAL INTERVENTION
In its purest form, minimal intervention means winemaking that doesn’t add or remove anything in the wine making progress — it’s about letting the fruit and the land give expression to the wine.
(R) – RARE GRAPE VARIETY OR BLEND
Put quite simply, this is a grape variety or blend that you don’t normally see. As such it is curious in its own right and well worth exploring.
(O) – ORGANIC
Organic wine is basically wine made with grapes grown without the use of any synthetic chemical product to help preserve the health of both customers as well as the planet. The restricted use of sulphates also plays a big part, leaving you with as clean and hangover-free a wine as possible.
(BIO) – BIODYNAMIC
In short, Biodynamic farming seeks sustainability or leaving the land in as good or better shape as they found it for future generations. The idea is to create a self-sustaining system where animals graze on the land and natural planting and picking cycles are used. Some Biodynamic practices are pretty strange, like burying a cow horn (never a bull horn…for some reason) in the field over winter, but we’ll let you Google that yourself…
If you have a particular preference of wine not on this list, we can order anything in for you from our suppliers. Please call us to do so. You may also bring in your own wine but please note that we charge £40 corkage for both of these options.
