The Veneto is a region that is committed to biodiversity and the Savian vineyards led the charge in putting the environment at the heart of their family business. Almost 30 years ago, in 1993, Savian became the first producers in the Veneto region to be certified organic. With vineyards rich in clay soil with shallow carbonate, the scene was perfectly set for low intervention wine, which is in keeping with organic practice.
The Savian Cabernet Franc is a deep ruby colour with purple hues. Medium-bodied, this wine will keep – improving as it rests. Herbaceous notes are predominant but it is a young wine that will develop in elegance.
Situated to the south of New Zealand’s Marlborough region, Tohu is the world’s first Māori-owned wine business.
Dedicated to creating wines that capture the essence of each region’s unique environment, Tohu respect the earth in which the vines are grown and consider protecting resources from the next generation an integral part of their philosophy.
This Pinot Gris allows the drinker to experience flavours and notes that are both complex and deep. The pairing of pear and quince are well met with the lightness of orange blossom and the sharpness of apple. With sweet spice and a smooth acidity, this wine delivers on several levels before leaving a lengthy finish.
Not only is the El Seque Monastrell a fully organic and vegan wine, but it is entirely produced from grapes grown on the one estate. This wine benefits from the Mediterranean climate, which informs the wine’s character. Artadi are fully committed to producing wines that are a result of a vibrant ecosystem, its own ‘alive’ entity and separate to outside influences. Warm black fruits and balsamic notes come together in a full-bodied wine from a grape native to Spain.
Seifried Estate was an early adopter of a sustainable approach to viniculture, signing up to New Zealand’s Sustainable Winegrowing programme when it was launched in the mid-90s. This wine benefits from the heat of 2018-19’s growing season, which gives it a rich depth of dark fruit, with hints of dried fruit and Christmas spice and even hints of chocolate coffee within. Any tannins present are well-balanced with the deep fruit flavours and the wine itself is pleasingly deep red in colour.
An unsurprising addition to our portfolio, as the 2020 Platinum Winner of the International Sustainable Winegrowing Award, this wine from Australia’s cool Victoria region is bright and fresh but full of flavour.
The Crittenden Estate consider all aspects of wine production in terms of sustainability, from solar energy to bees and composting. With red berry fruits and supple tannins, this is a fabulous example of Pinot Noir at its best.
