Description

New release of our most popular wine - the delicious, dry house white for Rick Stein and Gordon Ramsay for many years.

Specifically, the house wine at Gordon Ramsay's three Michelin star restaurant in London, a 'special selection' at Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant in Cornwall and the prestige house white at Hotel du Vin across the UK. €9 a bottle, in France.

The back label: A long, dry summer followed a wet spring, so our September harvest of 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Sémillon was of super quality. This delicious, estate-grown dry white has been the house wine for Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein for 15+ years. 13% vol.

Bordeaux 2018 will be remembered as an exceptional year in more ways than one. It may be a cliché but it really was 'a game of two halves': until the football World Cup in June, we'd had a wet winter and then a thoroughly soggy spring. Many châteaux struggled with the threat of mildew, and Daniel, Nelly and the team did a terrific job in the vineyard keeping any such nasties at bay.

And then the sun shone all the way to the autumn harvest - to have three complete months of sunny, dry weather from early July right through to early October is rare. After a small vintage in 2017 because of a late spring frost, we were lucky in 2018 to bring in an excellent crop for both the whites and the reds.
