Muret Syrah, Pays d’Oc, France £7.95
Béatrice and Christophe Muret are the owners of Domaine Muret in the Pays d’Oc. The Domaine is located 4 kilometres away from the historical town of Pézenas. The rolling vineyards, basking in the Mediterranean climate are flanked on one side by scrubland and on the other by plains. Tank fermented only, the flavours of black pepper, violets and wild strawberry of this unoaked Syrah really shine.
Lalama, Ribeira Sacra, Spain £19.95
Ribeira Sacra is a remote, Atlantic influenced region in Galicia with precipitous, terraced vineyards reminiscent of the Douro or Priorat. This is extreme terroir country and Dominio do Bibei has set out to try and capture its unique character using the local and indigenous varieties that include Mencia, Garnacha, Brancellao and Mouraton for the reds. No stainless steel is used here. The reds are aged on fine lees in barrique and foudre for 18 months and released to drink after 2-3 years. Lalama, at 12.5% alcohol, is tautly structured with pure raspberry fruit, floral notes, intense minerality and fine tannins. This is an exceptional wine and certainly at the forefront of the renaissance of one of Spain's most intriguing D.O's.
