We all like to be pleasantly surprised, don't we? Segna de Cor by Domaine Le Roc des Anges is a blend of Grenache Noir, Carignan and Syrah; incredibly low in alcohol - just 12.5%. It got me thinking that this wine is not as simple and straightforward as three organic grape varieties blended into one organic red wine. Let's explore!
Do you think a particular wine can have it all? Amazing flavours, all-round pleasant profile, certified organic, no added sulphites, no filtration and unclarified…
It definitely can be.. with a massive price tag to it (you’d think!)
Allow us to introduce you to our great find of this year - Tragolargo 2014:
Have you tried many organic English wines? Many of us like to go and explore fresh, seasonal local produce at farmer's markets and eat healthy. We go to gyms, enjoy our walks in the park with family and friends and we believe you should consider adding local organic wines to your menu too.
May we suggest you can start with this white wine - Horsmonden 2014 white wine that comes from Davenport Vineyards in East Sussex.
We are not just to brag about our bestselling organic wines, but also to give some stage to ones that are not selling well, but are stars in our eyes. Let us introduce you to Fatalone Primitivo from Puglia, Italy and outline why we think it is awesome!
First of all, Primitivo is such an uninspiring name, isn’t it? It sounds like it is a simplistic, almost primitive wine, not worth of any attention. I remember I came across this grape variety 5 or 6 years ago, bought it from a well known supermarket chain and thought it was alright. It did not blew my mind and the name probably matched to my experience. So I cannot blame anyone who is not impressed by it as well.
Yet when our supplier insisted we try this Italian organic wine, we were amazed by its story and flavours. Let is tell you all about it!
