What we are drinking

Spoke 'Amped' Chardonnay

Marlborough, 2022 New Zealand

Spoke 'Amped' Chardonnay, Isabel Vineyard, Marlborough, New Zealand 2022


Amped Chardonnay hails from the organic Isabel vineyard and sees much of the same treatments as its siblings, whole bunch pressed and wild yeast fermentation, plus, on this occasion, barrel fermentation. The oak's presence is subtle though and there's definitely a parallel with Burgundy's Pouilly Fuisse.

It's dry but it's beautifully balanced too, with a rich, textured mouthfeel. Aromatic, with yellow apple and stone fruits and a touch of almonds on the nose. The minerality carries through to give it a deliciously long finish with lovely apple and citrus fruit. If this was a Burgundy you'd be edging the decimal point a little to the right... 

Try it with good fish, seafood pasta or risotto, some Brie de Meaux or Wicklow Blue.

Spoke 'Brink' Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon

Marlborough, 2021 New Zealand

Spoke 'Brink' Sauvignon Blanc - Semillon, Marlborough, New Zealand 2021

Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon

The grapes for Spoke's 'Brink' come from Marlborough's oldest organic vineyard, the Brink vineyard. The wine plays homage to the white Graves in Bordeaux or Margaret River's equivalent in Western Australia, with a classic blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon (75%/25%). Hand harvested and whole bunch fermented together, with wild yeasts, in old oak barrels to create a lively white. There's some herbs and citrus fruit notes, along with stone fruits like peach, apricot. There's a fullness here, combined with graceful acidity that keeps it fresh. 

Pairs well with grilled vegetables, grilled or herb-roasted chicken and your favourite hard cheese. 

"This is complex and lively, with some fennel and grapefruit, as well as a core of yellow fruits including apricot, peach and plum, as well as some persimmon notes. It combines freshness and fruity richness, with these lovely aniseed and fennel notes. Like top white Bordeaux with the volume knob turned up."
- 92/100 Jamie Goode. August 2023

Ian’s recommendations

Domaine Paul-Henri Thillardon, Chénas 'Les Carrieres'

Beaujolais , 2019 France

Domaine Paul-Henri Thillardon, Chénas 'Les Carrieres' Beaujolais, France 2019 

Grape: Gamay

A wonderfully pure, refined and elegant Chenas from one of the exciting producers in all of Beaujolais. A relative newcomer to the organic/natural scene, but you’d never know it- Paul-Henri’s wines have a fantastic precision and lightness of touch. Free from any chemical additives, but still clean as a whistle, this is fine, fresh and grippy, with delicate raspberry and cherry fruit.

Pairs well with light meat dishes, duck, charcuterie
