Another month of organic wine discovery awaits.
Honey Spencer, wine guru supreme, has picked out
a trio of grape-y gems for your palatable pleasure.In
this month’s Wine Club, we explore three from the Château de Nages Liberty range.

If there was ever a holy land of wine, there is no denying
that the Rhône valley would make a convincing candidate.
Situated in France’s southern quarter, to the east of Bordeaux
and the north of the Languedoc-Roussillon, Rhône has all the
makings of God’s own country. Sweeping landscapes of lavender
fields, the mighty Alps, and of course, the most blessed vineyard
site in the world, the famous hill of Hermitage.

Here Michael Gassier lives out his days as a fourth generation winemaker at Château de Nages. He fervently crafts in his organic vineyards, with native varieties Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre along with small batches of indigenous white grapes. Micheal is always searching for ways to let the grapes and their terroir do the talking, rather than relying on clever winery techniques. He harvests by hand and allows the wine to ferment with natural domestic yeasts rather than yeasts designed in a laboratory. The resulting wines are fresh, pure and beautifully detailed.

Liberty Nages Blanc (75cl)
Tasting notes:
This blend of local varieties; Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Colombard, forms a winning unit here. The grapes are hand-picked and cold macerated on their skins before being pressed to boost the freshness and primary fruit profile. You’ll detect notes of tangerine and ripe apricot on the nose and a rather glossy, weighty texture on the palate. This is balanced well by firm acidity owing to those cool breezes coming off the nearby water.

Food pairings:
Truly this is a wine that can be matched to a lot of different dishes. Try it with the completely irresistible Aubergine and Mozzarella Melts.
Liberty Nages Rosé (75cl)
Tasting notes:
Made with Grenache, Syrah and a touch of Merlot, this rosé starts off relatively savoury on the nose, with surprising inclusions of pickled cucumber and prosciutto cotto! On the palette, raspberry jam and a fairly sizeable redcurrant tang take hold. Minimal SO2 is used through the winemaking too, giving the end product a little extra ‘wildness’. With its tangy bite, this is certainly a rosé destined for food.

Food pairings
Try it with our Caramelised Lemon, Radish and Avocado Chopped Salad.
Liberty Nages Rouge (75cl)
Tasting notes:
This blend of Rhône heavyweights; Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Merlot culminate in a brilliantly vibrant red that is in equal measure fresh and serious. Extended skin contact at low temperatures allows the wine to develop concentrated flavours and aromas without sacrificing the overall brightness. Look out for scores of wild black currants, violets, black olives and prunes, with a nice firm tannin edging.

Food pairings
Pair this with something that is equally as hearty as it is lively: Saffron Lamb Stew with Olives and Barley.
