Fire & Earth- Volcanic Wines Mixed Case

£155.00

Description

Renowned for exceptional landscapes, volcanic regions also represent incredible but hostile terroirs to grow vines and produce some of the most intriguing wines. They are some of the most interesting and distinctive wines to get stuck into. Whether vines planted on basalt soil of old lava flows, thousands of years ago or vineyards planted on slopes of still actively grumbling volcanoes, they are wines worth exploring.

To help you start on your journey in discovering this amazing terroir and find out what makes them so special, we've put together a bespoke selection of six wines from some of the most famous volcanic regions across the globe. 

 

This case contains one bottle of each of the wines listed below.

 

  • Moric, Hidden Treasure Project Somlo 2019, Hungary

The nose is a soft citrus reminiscent of lime blossom, then a punch of fresh herb fennel and anise. There is also apple peel and grapefruit zest. The palate, is powerful juicy and acidic, herb-scented and stony with a lively minerality and a lot of salt.

  • Benito Ferrara, Greco di Tufo Terra d'Uva 2021, Italy

From one of Italy’s best white wine producers, this Greco di Tufo is medium-bodied with a refreshing minerality. It has lifted aromas of tropical and citrus fruits with delicate hints of apple and bitter almond flavours on the finish.

  • Kelley Fox, Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2021, USA

Beautiful pale lemon yellow in appearance, this Chardonnay is brilliant and transparent in the glass. The nose has soft minerals, hints of vanilla, pear, and subtle spices and honeysuckle and continues in the mouth along with stone-fruit and caramelized sugar. I think what we love the most about this wine is its texture that carries all of this. 

  • Cantine Matrone, Territorio de Matroni Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso 2020 , Italy Organic

A well structured and very drinkable red, which denotes freshness and flavour, with rich but soft tannins. A few smoky notes form the corollary to this splendid interpretation of the volcano's wine.

  • Emiliana, Coyam 2019, Chile  Organic, Biodynamic

Emiliana's iconic blend. This is an elegant and complex perfumed wine with fruity notes of cherries, plums, blueberries, and blackberries, along with refreshing notes of mint and a hint of black pepper, leather, and pencil lead. The palate is also very fruity with fresh acidity, good concentration, and good structure that draws out the lingering finish.

  • Sokol Blosser, Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2019, USA

The nose is rich with mushroom, truffle, and forest floor, accompanied by black cherry, cranberry, and clove. The palate reflects the cranberry, black cherry and truffle, but also introduces a dash of black pepper with medium tannins and acidity on the finish.
