Description

Black Mountain Traditional Method Brut

Black Mountain Traditional Method Brut is a light straw colour. The nose displays apple, citrus and hazelnuts. On the palate you’ll find crunchy green apple, citrus and a crisp finish.

Winemaking

The grapes were picked by hand and lightly pressed in our small basket press. The juice was allowed to settle and the clear must racked before fermentation in stainless steel. The wine was left on its lees in tank for 8 months. Bottled in summer 2017 and left to age for minimum of 18 months; in which time secondary fermentation took place. The bottles were riddled and disgorged by hand.

Vineyard

2016 was before we started our organic certification, however no herbicides or insecticides were used, and only minimal fungicides were sprayed. We 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.

Pol Roger Brut Quick View

Pol Roger Brut

Pol Roger Brut Reserve is synonymous with classic, brilliant Champagne. The Champagne has its devout disciples within the trade - almost a trade secret! When you get to taste it you will understand why the trade want to keep it for themselves. The small, classic bubbles, perfumed spice, vanilla and coffee leading to a fruit filled bundle of vibrant tastes finishing with elegant spices and a hint of butter. On the nose, white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality dominate the champagne. On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity. UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement ageing so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths. The aperitif champagne par excellence but one, which has sufficient backbone to be drunk with a variety of foods.

Spagnol Prosecco DOC Treviso Extra Dry Quick View

Spagnol Prosecco DOC Treviso Extra Dry 2017

Classic straw yellow colour. Fine, persistent and delicate bubbles. The bouquet has perfumes and aromas ranging from fruit (pear, apple) to flowers (acacia, elderflower). The sugars in the wine are perfectly balanced with clean acidity and a typical minerality that comes from the fact that the grapes are grown in some of the region's best vineyards. This all gives the impression of a drier wine, but incredibly smooth and well balanced on the palate. From Spagnols family vineyards, low sulphite and suitable for vegans, an excellent value for money. A real artisan Prosecco, for a real Prosecco lover!
