Wines don’t get better credentials than this – Organic, Fairtrade and with no added sulphur – and it tastes good too.  Crisp, bright and fresh.

Vibrant tropical fruit, backed by clear gooseberry freshness.  Perfect with a pile of lettuce leaves and even grilled fish.

Full of soft bramble and cassis flavours. Stock up for Saturday quality drinking at a mid-week price.

Worth stockpiling for later. Classic Bordeaux grapes provide deep cassis and mocha flavours with supple tannins.  A Sunday lunch wine.
