The Wine Scout

Pedro says “My company sells natural wine in markets and pop-up events. We champion established and emerging producers who work on tiny estates across Europe producing organic, biodynamic and low-intervention wines.

Some of the producers are personal friends. I’ve just opened a Twitter account, so no many followers for @WineScoutUK so far!

On Saturday 15th Nov I’ll be showing organic or biodynamic wines from France, Italy and Spain, such as:
 
ALFREDO MAESTRO TEJERO, Ribera del Duero – Biodynamic
Alfredo’s wines are completely natural wines, with no sulphur added in the vineyard or the winery. All vineyard treatments are natural, and many of them follow biodynamic practices. His Lovamor is made with the rare indigenous variety Albillo and has a sweet nose of roses, mineral and red berry fruits which lead to a dense palate of plum, cherry and berry compote. Yum!

« LO PETIT FANTET DE L’HIPPOLYTE » CHATEAUX OLLIEUX ROMANIS Corbières
“Lo Petit Fantet” is a blend of old vines Carignan with Syrah and Grenache grown on limestone-clay. After a carbonic maceration, vinification is in cement without sulphur using indigenous yeast. Cherry-red with violets glints Lo Petit has an intense nose with sweet raspberry and kirsch fruit, lovely balance despite its powerful alcohol and a herbal undertow. Try it chilled!

GRAN CERDO, GONZALO GONZALO GRIJALBA, Rioja – Organic
With its cherry-red, purplish, brilliant colour Gran Cerdo reveals primary notes of fresh fruit, strawberries, raspberries, cherries and violets with clean mineral tones from the granite. In the end Gran Cerdo is all about the purest expression of fruit with whole bunch fermentation, no filtration, no stabilization and minimal sulphur.”
