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. As the cool, Autumnal days drift in and we bid adieu to what was undisputedly a truly wonderful British Summer, I find myself happily full of anticipation for shorter days and longer nights, and ever so ready to embrace the season and it’s bounties earlier than ever this year. The thirst for rosés and crisp whites has been replaced by a yearning for deeper, more textured whites and cosy reds, perfect accompaniments for the amazing variety of Autumnal produce starting to fill up my weekly veg box. This month we have echoed the switch in tempo of the climate and selected one white and two reds to help you slip into the season as easily as as lifting a glass up to say cheers!

Fiesta de Azul y Garanza (75cl)
Another much celebrated producer from the Abel and Cole cellar for our third wine this month, this time from the Navarra and in the hands of Fiesta de Azul y Garanza who Wine Club members may remember from July’s popular selection. Often a much overlooked portion of Northern Spain, particularly when compared against neighbouring Rioja, Navarra is very much one to watch when it comes to quality winemaking and fantastic value. Poor quality soil in the region encourage vines planted to dig deeper for fortification, resulting in wines that carry both complexity and concentration. This hearty blend of local varieties Grenache and Tempranillo make for a soft and heady wine, brimming with dried plums, tomato leaf, earth and eucalyptus.

Pair it with the soft spice of the Grenache with delicate smokey pork in this recipe for Smoky Spanish Pork with Rosemary Butter Bean Mash:
Les Tannes Cabernet Merlot (75cl)
In the lower echelon of the Herault Valley stand the red vineyards of Les Tannes, farmed biodynamically since the 1990s and protected from the negative effects of chemical agriculture by the luck of its positioning: surrounded by wild scrublands and pine forests. The 36 hectares of vines were independently managed before being adopted into the Mas family portfolio in 2006. Here we find a classic regional blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that carries notes of black tea and raisin and a touch of pepper from the Merlot. The ideal wine for cosying up with as the nights draw in.

We loved combining the warm, peppery notes of this wine with the earthy mushrooms and lentils in this veggie friendly dish: Mushroom, Rosemary and Sweet Potato Hot Pot
Les Tannes Chardonnay (75cl)
From one of our favourite organic producers in the South of France, The Mas family have been making wine in Herault and the surrounding regions in the Languedoc for well over a hundred years. This weighty, plush Chardonnay comes from an organic hillside vineyard that benefits from long, warm days and cool evenings brought by breezes from the coast nearby. The harvest is carried out at night to maximise freshness and is fermented in steel tanks with a small batch fermented in American barrels for added richness. Find aromas of candied lime and Anjou pear on the nose whilst on the palette carries notes of burnt toffee and just the slightest touch of spritzy kombucha! Well worth a try for those who usually shun the Chardonnay grape as there is are ample levels of acidity and freshness to balance out the opulence in the glass.
