The Wine Scout Naturally produced wines from around the world, sourced by Pedro. He says “This Saturday we will taste two biodynamic wines. The WHITE Muscadet Nouveau from Jo Landron Jo Landron in the Loire has floral and apple flavours, a lovely concentration and some finesse. It is one of the first wines of the year – like a Bojo Nouveau, it is released a few months after it is produced. Jo Landron is one of Muscadet’s most esteemed natural producers. We wil also taste the RED Segna De Cor from one of my favourite producers from the Rousillon in Southern France, Le Roc des Anges. This Grenache, Carignan and Syrah blend is soft, smooth, silky and smoky. All at once. It is lively and fresh in the mouth, with gentle flavours of red grape and berry, dried spices and roasted herbs.”
CAKES, PASTRIES, BREAD
Brett & Bailey Joe says “December’s here and on the stall this week we’ll have the return of several festive faves and some brand new Christmas crackers. Expect eggnog cheesecake, Buck’s Fizz cake with clementine curd, mulled pear squares, shortbread treacle tart, sticky date cake, brand new White Forest gateau with cherries and amaretto, gingerbread latte cake, a choice of Christmas spice cookies or chocolate and orange cookies with home-candied clementine peel, and plenty of stollen swirl buns too.
