[SHIPPING FROM 1st April]
'REBIRTH': April Case - Delivered to you, or someone you love!
Whats in my case? Two wines curated by Brawn general manager and sommelier Patrick Campbell for our March case with his tasting guide + a poster by our competition winner Will Creswick.
1. Gazzetta • Rosa Trilli • Procanico, Sangiovese, Italy - The perfect wine for this springtime and beyond. Depth coming from old vine Sangiovese burying deep into the dry Earth, bringing complexity and a full range of savoury notes on the first sniff. The finish is lengthy, and dainty aromats of peach and rosewater hang loftily about...but only serve to remind you to look seriously at a bottle to follow with...as you know this one will not last long. [P.C]
2. La Ferm Des Septs Lunes • Lunatik Lady Land • Marsanne, Roussane • France - Lunatik Lady Land comes from steep slopes of silt, clay & granite in one of the highest points of St. Joseph. Lunatik is an accidental triumph, one that treads boundaries and breaks with tradition, but gives a next level of flavourful pleasure. A truly unique expression...one for pondering with wine geeks and culinary freaks at the table. [P.C]
3. Malibran • Sottoriva "Col Fondo" • Glera • Veneto • Italy - Bubbles are a permanent fixture in my fridge, with every reason to celebrate life needing decent fizz alongside it. This is 100% Glera, popularised by Prosecco the world over. This example is made more similarly with the 'Ancestral' Venetian method of allowing secondary fermentation to occur within the bottle.
4. Domaine Bobinet • Ruben • Müller Thurgau, Silvaner, Gewürztraminer • Germany - Cab Francs are one of my year-round crushes, with seemingly never an unsuitable time of the year to open them. Ruben is youthful and fruit-driven, with dark sour cherries and tart raspberries interspersed with the cool, vegetal tones of green bell peppers.
5. MA Andorfer Mitges • Gruner Vetliner Handcrafted • Kamptal, Austria - Open, ripe & fleshy, this Grûner is made with whole bunches and a brief period of skin contact to lift the inherent flavours a little. Martin and Anna Arndorfer work out of Kamptal in Austria. Their vineyards have been passed down Martin's family and they have well-established vines, some over 70 years old. The parcels are surrounded by forest and are freely native to many wild animals and a cornucopia of local insects. We poured this on our key keg system at Brawn and it never had an off day. An interesting alternative for those forever seeking Sauvignon Blanc type vibes.
