Marañones ‘Picarana’ Albillo Real, Sierra de Gredos, Spain 2019 - €23
A white wine for autumnal drinking. Subtle nose of apple, white peach golden plum, followed by a wonderful texture on the palate-it feels rich, rounded & smooth -then finishes with fresh, mineral and slightly saline tang. A fantastic introduction to this intriguing variety.
Maison Lombard ‘Azalee’ Syrah Viognier, VdP de la Drome, France 2020 - €24
Ease yourself into autumn with this utterly delicious biodynamic Syrah from Domaine Lombard. By turns brambly, juicy, spicy and savoury, it is warming and satisfying and the perfect glass (or bottle) for the darker, colder evenings.
