Description

Black Mountain Col Fondo

Black Mountain Col Fondo is a cloudy light amber colour. The nose offers enticing stone fruit and floral aromas. On the palate fresh peaches, apricot and elderflower with fresh acidity.

Winemaking

The grapes were picked by hand and fermented using natural yeast in stainless steel. We retained around 30% of the Siegerrebe skins to add further flavours and texture to the wine. The wine was then blended and aged in tanks before bottling. An addition of 8g/l organic sugar was made to spark fermentation in the bottle. No other additions were made.

Vineyard

2018 was their first year of organic conversion, therefore grapes were grown to Soil Association standards. They used minimal sprays of copper and sulphur when necessary and made plant teas to keep the vines healthy.

Producer

Mark and Laura planted the vineyard in 2009. Before moving to Hereford to start this adventure mark had studied for a BSc (hons) in Viticulture and Oenology at Plumpton college in Sussex. As well as studying the theory of vines and wines he worked at several vineyards in the local area including one organic producer.

He then travelled to France to work harvests in Languedoc and Fronton in South West France. We do all the work on the vineyard and in the winery ourselves unless we can rope in some friends to help us!

“We try and use nature as much as possible and are currently converting our vines to organic standards through the Soil Association . Therefore we use no synthetic pesticides in the vineyard and concentrate on physical work on the vines and soil to keep disease pressure low. We leave areas of the vineyard uncultivated to help the wildlife flourish which we believe gives the vineyard a balanced ecosystem.

When it comes to fertiliser we like to use natural products such as nettles and comfrey to create our own. We also use organic seaweed sprays, all this help ensures healthy develop of the vine throughout the year. Most of the work that takes place on the vineyard is done by hand this way we always know whats going on with the vines!” – https://blackmountainvineyard.co.uk/

Spagnol Prosecco DOCG Frizzante Lo Spago Quick View

Spagnol Prosecco DOCG Frizzante Lo Spago 2017

The colour is bright straw yellow and it has the light and soft perlage typical of Frizzante wines. The nose senses a bouquet of apple and floral notes of acacia and wisteria. The taste is fresh and very typical, with good acidity balanced by tatantalizing sapidity or an almost salty minerality. This wine is closely linked to the traditions of this territory and characterised by the typical “twine knot”. The cork is fixed to the bottle neck with twine, a procedure which is still done today by hand, just as it has been done for generations by the farming families of this area.

Bastia Rebuli Vino Frizzante Colfondo Capo degli Onesti Quick View

Bastia Rebuli Vino Frizzante Colfondo Capo degli Onesti 2016

Straw yellow in colour with the delicate delicate perlage typical of Frizzante wines. This wine is a jump into the history of Prosecco, when locals used to call it in the local dialect "el vin col fondo” - "the wine with sediment". This is in fact a traditional Colfondo Frizzante wine, with in-bottle fermentation and storage on the yeast lees. Without filtering or clarification, this wine takes on unique and unmistakable features, and its complexity is overwhelming and fascinating. If shaken, it can be quite hazy and cloudy; the smell is characterised by yeasty notes, crust of bread and yellow ripe fruit; the taste is bone-dry and pleasantly sapid. Bastia Rebuli winery is located in the heart of Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG appellation. With the "Capo degli Onesti" they wanted to celebrate Prosecco, its history and tradition; for this reason they decided to label this wine as "Vino Frizzante Bianco", just like their grandparents used to do years and years ago.

Bastia Rebuli Brut Zero Sugar Prosecco calories DOCG “Introvers0” - best low calorie Prosecco Quick View

Zero Sugar Prosecco DOCG Introvers0 by Bastia Rebuli 2017

Grapes come from 2 vineyards: Saccol and Bastia. They are pressed together at the same time to better balance the organoleptic character of each single parcel. On the nose, this gorgeous wine shows all the aromatic fruity character of Glera grapes. To the palate, it keeps the pleasant roundness and smooth finish typical of Prosecco, but without the need of any sugars. Its name means “introvert” in Italian, since it does not give confidence right away... but, for those who can wait, this wine will be absolutely overwhelming! With its 0 g/l of residual sugars, the Introvers0 is a very rare example of an actual sugar free Prosecco. This is why it is the lowest sugar Prosecco you can find on the UK market, and one of the lowest calories fizz too!

Ayala Brut Majeur

Pale gold in colour with a fine mousse, the wine is aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity. It is the Pinot Noir that gives the wine richness and a long finish while the Chardonnay, from the finest soils of the Cote des Blancs, adds delicacy, liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier, mainly from the Marne Valley, gives the wine an appealing fruitiness and roundness.

Bollinger Special Reserve

Special Cuvee is made from a majority of reserve wines fermented either in mature oak casks or small stainless steel tanks depending on the characteristics and fundamental potential of the base wines. A significant part of the reserve wines have been fermented in mature oak barrels before being transferred into magnums, which are then stored under cork in Bollinger’s cellars for as long as 12 to 15 years, with a minimum of 5. Blended some years later with the other base wines, coming from the two latest harvests in proportions which can change from one year to another, they impart the final blend with an inimitable and unrivalled consistency and majesty.
