These special wines form a true national treasure of our industry.

Press Review

    Best's Foudre Ferment Riesling 6pk 2019Vines planted '78 and '98, harvested by the sophisticated Opti grape sorter-destemmer, 4 hours in the Opti before pressing, thence to a 7yo foudre for fermentation, and maturation on lees. You'd better pay attention as you take your first sip - this is not your grandma's riesling. Unsweetened lime sorbet.

    White flowers and baby powder. Lime blossoms are open and loose-knit as it flows through to the mid-palate where they hand off to a layer of lime curd and oyster-shell, a touch of dry sawdust gives hints to the winemaking used. Sweetness is there but so well-controlled by a pithy acid line, so the finish is bright and clean. Drink now – 2028
