Ready for an adventure?

Every month is a new tasting adventure when you subscribe to this case of six from the leading edge of winemaking.

Each month we’ll showcase producers from obscure and often challenging wine locations.

The quality of any wine is determined by the geography and climate where the grapes are grown. But the most suitable locations are shifting as our planet warms.

With new areas outperforming established wine regions, we must begin to recognise excellence where it’s found today, not where it used to be.

With these cases, you can enjoy bottles from the very latest names in winemaking excellence.

What's in the first case of six?

Three white and three red:

The Liberator ‘Episode 29 – Chenin No. 5’, 2019 WO Western Cape , South Africa

Episode 29 is like Premier Cru Chablis. Nutty notes of slivered almonds, some apple juice concentrate, light notes of acacia honey.

Score: 92/100, Vegan

Fruitiere Vinicole Arbois, Arbois Chardonnay, 2018, Jura, France

An absolutely electric palate with blazing acids, delicate nutty overtones, but an underlying energy that is really amazing.

Score: 90/100, Sustainable

Domaine de Rocheville, Saumur ‘La Dame’, Chenin Blanc, Loire Valley, France

A very distinctive, precise and quite sophisticated Chenin Blanc that feels both very youthful and relatively evolved at the same time.

Score: 92/100

Hiervandaan Solms Delta, Mourvedre, 2012, WO Western Cape, South Africa

Can't stop drawing my nose back to the glass. Secondary to tertiary notes with liquorice and damson fruit on palate with a lot of depth and ripe tannins. A mature mourvedre showing its softer side.

Score: 95/100, Sustainable

Brusafer Pinot Nero, 2016 Trentino Superiore, Italy

Supple, fine and quite silky with nice red cherry fruit as well as some fine green hints. Has real elegance and a savoury edge, with massive drinkability and more than a hint of complexity.

Score: 89/100, Vegan, Sustainable

Domaine Castell-Reynoard, Bandol 2014 ‘Bandol ‘Coeur de Vigne’

Julien Castell is at the helm and moving the domaine towards a biodynamic future. The vines have been certified as organic since 2014 and biodynamic from the 2017 vintage.

Score: 91/100, Organic
