Alphabetical Red ‘Extraordinaire’
The 2020 is more Cab Franc led, with that typical gentle herbal nose, hints of dried orange peel and pot pourri, with lots of glossy fruit – blackberries, squishy blueberries and damsons too. The palate is plush, nailing the balance between gentle earthy tones and brighter fruit. Svelte, polished and with a sumptuous mouthfeel too, with gratings of dark chocolate, merest hint of spearmint and candied peel, and very fine, refreshing acidity.
Alphabetical Wines came from a decision to break the rules. They are made by friends David Cope and Simon Wibberly, who didn’t want to make a single varietal wine or even a classic blend.
Unfussed by area or origin and not owning their own estate, or boasting years of heritage, they wanted to make wines that were fun – voluptuous yet drinkable, impressive yet affordable, honest products that are naturally fermented and made with the utmost care to maintain the integrity of the fruit and the variety character.
