This has got to be one of our most unusual bottles - 100% Albariño from Wales! Fermented on skins and aged in large Austrian oak barrels, it is savoury and herbal with stone fruit & bruised apple notes.
Ancre Hill planted their first vines in 2006, on southfacing slopes of former grazing pasture, close to Monmouth in Wales. The focus here is on keeping the balance in the soil and the vines healthy. The vineyards are manages biodynamically, and no insecticides, pesticides or herbicides are used.
