Made by Soma Vines, in Eckelsheim, Germany, where on the 13th of September 2023, Antoine Lucchesi and Daisy Merrick picked Pinot Noir grapes from their vineyards. The result is juicy and structured, with great length and nice acidity. Too good to be a primeur! Something deliciously fun for all to try.
4 days on the skins, semi carbonic, clay & limestone soil.
Fermented and aged just 7 weeks in old oak barrels.

Domaine La Bancale - Saint Paul de Fenouillet, Roussillon
The grapes are grown on old bush vines planted on schist soil. Whole bunch, 10 days on their skins, then pressed. Aged in stainless tanks.
The wines from Bastien Baillet & Céline Schuers are a perfect expression of how you can capture the terroir and create extremely elegant wines from the south of France. This one’s got flavours of concentrated cherries with sweet spices and a good amount of flowing acidity. It’s very precise, light and clean. Serve slightly chilled.

This is an exotic Silvaner, with a creamy mouthfeel, fresh and elegant with a lightly stewed tea characteristic. There are some hints of CO2 on the tongue from the maceration, which lift off with a little exposure to oxygen. The grapes come from Andi Mann's vineyard in Eckelsheim, from 25 year old vines on sandstone soil. Whole bunches of grapes were transferred into a tank and left to undergo full carbonic maceration for 3 weeks.
No added sulphites.

The grapes are from 40 year old vines on clay and calcareous soil from Weingut Nägele in Baden. After picking, they were left in the cold overnight performing a cold maceration. The next day they were pressed and the juice was transferred into 500L barrels to ferment and age.
This year the winemakers Antoine Lucchesi and Daisy Merrick have decided not to disgorge the wine. Meaning the yeast particles are still inside the bottle. Therefore your wine may look a little cloudy.
The notes are of green apple, with creamy mouthfeel, lots of little bubbles all over the tongue, slightly wild.

On the 29th of September 2022, winemakers Daisy Merrick and Antoine Lucchesi picked the Riesling grapes from Weingut Achenbach in Neu Bamberg, Rheinhessen from 30+ year old vines on sandstone soil.
This wine has been bottled with some residual sugar (as fermentation was slow in 2022), so you may hear a small 'pop' when you open the bottle with some delicate effervescence tickling your tongue.
It has some great acidity and richness in the mouth from the barrel aging. Almost like brioche on the palate with some caramel notes, it is an interesting Riesling to discover. Drink now or age it longer in the bottle for 1 - 3 years to experience its full potential.
**Even though this wine is in a sparkling wine bottle, it is a still wine.**
