Celler Credo Miranius 2014 (6 x 75cl)

Notes from the winery:

‘Miranius’, a clever fox who ventures into our vineyards and is delighted by the sweet aromas of the grapes.

 

The white wine Miranius is made exclusively with grapes from vineyards owned by Celler Credo in the county of Alt Penedès (Barcelona). All of the vineyards have been cultivated in accordance with the principles of organic, biodynamic agriculture.  In Celler Credo’s vineyards we let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover plays a crucial role, loosening the soil, regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system we practise), and helping to foster biodiversity and maintain a balance in the vineyard ecosystem.  Natural treatments based on medicinal plants (phytotherapy) are applied to the vines to control the presence of fungus and strengthen the vine’s defences in a natural way. All Celler Credo grapes are harvested by hand to ensure the excellent quality of the fruit. All our wines are produced and bottled on the property.

 

Miranius is a lively young wine that is very vibrant and ages well in the bottle. It is made mainly from the Mediterranean variety Xarel·lo, with subtle notes of Macabeu. Miranius has strong varietal character with crisp acidity and a good palate. To achieve this, we work with very low production volumes in our vineyards, taking great care over ripening with the aim of producing wines with natural, fresh acidity. This wine may contain natural sediments.

Domaine Saint-Nicolas Michon Haut des Clous, Fiefs Vendeens Chenin Blanc 2014 (6x75cl)

Awarded 93 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their February 2017 edition review of Loire Dry Chenins (see blue link below).

 

Fiefs Vendeens 2014 - February 2017 Decanter review

 

An elegant, fully dry Loire Chenin from the Fiefs Vendéens appellation; whereas much of the Loire’s better-known Chenins originate from way upstream in the Touraine or Anjou-Saumur, this comes from just where the river spills into the Atlantic below Nantes.

 

Indeed, Domaine Saint-Nicolas is precisely why Fiefs Vendéen is known. Michon are biodymanic producers and the Hauts des Clous is the epitome of their art. It has a progressive intensity with great tension and freshness, apple and peach aromas, a very smooth texture and long finish. There are not many dry Chenins like this.

Foradori Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco 2015 (6x 75cl)

Awarded 95 points and Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their May 2017 edition review of Natural Wines (see blue link below).

 

Foradori Fontanasanta 2015 - May 2017 Decanter review

 

Manzoni Bianco thrives on the clayey-calcareous hills above Trento, where its grapes ripen in late September. Born from the cross of Riesling and Pinot Bianco, this variety expresses the character of the Fontanasanta soil conditions. Its ability to evolve over time requires patience; Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco is a wine that will begin to fully reveal itself after two or three years from vintage.

 

Elizabetta Foradori sharing her thoughts on the Biodynamic viticulture that is central to the philosphy at the Foradori Winery: "We haven’t abandoned the modern spirit of knowledge and research, but have attempted to bring Man and his spirituality back into Science, considering not only the materialistic aspects of Nature but devoting ourselves to a deep awareness of the vital processes".

Montañar Organic Verdejo 2016 (1x75cl)

Pale straw yellow. The Verdejo has an exotic nose that verges on tropical fruit on the nose but retains a citrus zest on the palate. Intense fruit aromas and apple blossom are reflected on the palate with an additional hint of bitter almond. Light in body, with well balanced acidity and alcohol.

San Salvatore Pian di Stio Fiano, Paestum Campania 2015 (6x 75cl)

Awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of 'Weekday Wines' (under £25) (see blue link below).

 

San Salvatore, Pian di Stio Fiano, Paestum, Campania, Italy 2015 - June 2017 Decanter review

 

Hand-harvested, organically-grown Fiano grapes from the smaller Stio Cilento vineyard are employed in this exuberant wine. Here at an altitude of 550 metres above sea level, the grapes hang on the vine ripening slowly in the relatively cooler conditions, compared to the coastal vineyards, concentrating flavours in the grapes. The key vinicultural process is the cooling of the grapes prior to a cool fermentation, which maintains the aromatics in the finished wine. Shows powerful floral notes, jasmine, boxwood and broom, on the nose, backed with ripe citrus both juice and peel; minerally and refreshing on the palate.

£92.76

Urlar Sauvignon Blanc 2016 (1x 75cl)

This delivers zesty gooseberry, capsicum and lime flavours with a hint of passionfruit. While it remains a distinctively New Zealand sauvignon blanc the palate is full with great weight and length.

£11.40

Vigneti Del Vulture Bianco Pipoli Greco Fiano 2016 (1x75cl)

Pale lemon in colour, with perfumes of tropical fruit and a touch of vegetal notes. Rich yet fresh with a lime zest character, which comes from the Greco fruit, balancing the richness.

£10.40
