The Midsummer Selection Case

Here you go – this weekend’s selection, picked for you on the hottest day of the year so far. We’ve discounted it as usual so you’re getting a deal on the six pack. It includes (arguably) our favourite producer of all, Gerd Stepp of Germany, whose wines we have restocked and extended – they’re back in today! There are also two delicious rosés, one still, one sparkling, and some other beauties for the barby, or just to drink in the shade from a gently frosted glass.

 

Muscadet de Sevre et Maine, Les Hauts Pemions, Loire, £9.99

Regulars in the shop may know this one as it’s been on our shelf by the door at various times through lockdown. Having shipped it direct for the first time this year, it’s come down already from £11-£12 and at a tenner in this weather it’s a brilliant light, fresh choice, drunk with indecent haste.

 

Domaine de Mont d’Hortes Rosé, vdp d’Oc, £9.99

Had it last night with my parcel of salmon, chicken thigh and Lamb chop off the barby (greedy, I know), new pots in dill and butter, salad. It was delicious, proper Provencale style, drunk about 11 at night outside by the embers once everything had cooled a little. I strongly recommend you try something similar.

 

Stepp Pinot Noir, Pfalz, Germany, £14.99

Yaaaaasssss! It’s back! Gosh, this might be our most-requested wine of the last 3 months, once it sold out at lockdown +48 hours. Problems with importing during a global health crisis have kept it off our shelves until now, but no longer.  If you want to know, for better or worse, what good pinot noir tastes like, this is it.

 

Zensa Nero di Troia, Puglia, Italy, £11.99

The big, soft brother to the better-selling but quite possibly inferior Primitivo by the same producer. Both are organic, and reek of that irreplaceable sunshine-driven, herb-and-black-fruit character one gets from all sorts of Southern Italian reds. However, the Nero di Troia gives just that bit more richness and body, making it a gorgeous barbeque choice, especially if you’re in the habit of accidentally burning the lamb chops just a little.

 

Le Sabounet by Roger Sabon, Rhone, £9.99

Another shop fave, this, by another great producer. Sabon have dibs on the best bit of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape plateau, and accordingly make some of the best wines from that village, but they also have parcels of land in Lirac and one or two other fairly posh wine villages nearby. Le Sabounet is, basically, a table wine they knock together from whatever doesn’t go into any of their more exalted wines. It’s always absurdly good value, it’s always spicy and gutsy, but this year it seems to have become an absolute fifteen degree monster as well. For a tenner it’s ridiculous, but there it is. If you haven’t drunk it yet, you must. Now.

 

Landreau Cremant de Loire Rosé, £16.50

Light in colour, delicate in character, and infinitely classy. Lots of bottle age onto a base of cabernet franc creates a wine with a light strawberry character and a really subtle creaminess.

 

Total cost £73.50, buy it here for £65.
