Oh So Organic - 12 Bottle Case
**Price Includes DELIVERY**
We love winemakers that stay away from the easy commercial route, growing international grapes. We look for winemakers that revel in the individuality of indigenous grapes that give us joy and surprise. These winemakers not only grow little unknown and almost extinct grapes but excel at it. This case combines many of our favourite organic wines from across Europe that will introduce you to new varieties that are sure to delight.
2 x Domaine Ricard ‘Tasciaca’ - Touraine-Chenonceaux AOC, France
Vincent Ricard is very proud of his small microclimate, Chenonceaux AOC was only created in 2011 and now produces a more opulent style with more smokiness achieved from the flinty, Tuffeau stone. Fermented mostly in large oak tonneaux and 25% in small barrels, the oak gives texture and complexity while not overpowering the beautiful fruit—a real show stopper.
2 x Guerinda ‘El Maximo’ – Navarra, Spain
Grenache, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
An exciting blend that showcases Navarra’s strengths as a DO. Juicy, rich and textured with great depth of fruit cut with a dash of spice. Firm tannins and beautiful balance.
2 x Domaine Paterianakis – Crete, Greece
The Paterianakis family are third generation winemakers from the hills right in central Crete. Farming organically and using gravity in the winery so the healthiest fruit arrives for gentle pressing. Using wild yeast in stainless steel tanks, this Assyrtiko is full of citrus fruits, wild herbs and white flower with a vivid, crunch of acidity — delightful.
2 x Mas Las Cabes – Côtes du Roussillon AOC, France
Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre
The black marl and friable schist soils of the Mas Las Cabes estate are farmed organically by the Gardiés family. The wine this careful cultivation yields is true to its origin with subtle liquorice and olive notes on the nose and a generously fruity and mildly tannic palate.
2 x Nicodemi Montepulciano D'Abruzzo - Abruzzo DOC, Italy
From the sites with the best exposure in the DOCG area of Colline Terramane, longer skin maceration, ageing in stainless steel and some in old oak for 3-4 months, followed by at least a year in bottle before releasing. This results in a complex wine, richly aromatic, which reflects the deep understanding Elena Nicodemi has for her land and her grapes.
2 x Tebaldo - Marche IGP, Italy
Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio
The grapes for Tebaldo are hand-harvested early, in mid-August. This method showcases the aromatic characteristics of the grape varieties which produce this wine. The
combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc, while it sounds like a mouthful, delivers a wine of elegance and balance.
