Aromatic For The People
Paraphrasing from Animal Farm: all wines are aromatic but some are more aromatic than others.
Here’s a trio of white wines that positively leap from the glass with their surging scents. With a fiver off the usual price as well.
Additionally these are all smart, bright and un-oaked wines that hit the ‘refresh and revive me’ button.
Modern Spanish white wines have come a long way and prove to be some of the most value driven we can find anywhere. Bodega Celaya’s Verdejo offers a fresh combo of grapefruit zest, lime and mandarin scents with a zippy palate where a touch of mango and white pepper lurk. Perfect foil for a plate of marinated seafood.
We source our Vagabond Sauvignon Blanc from the warm, dry central valley region south of Santiago in Chile. This is a large flat zone with perfect weather for vines all year round allowing plentiful production and low costs. It is consistently our best selling wine. Citrus and green pepper notes with a twang of Bramley apple and pear drop.
When it comes to scents there’s few as evocative as our Vagabond Winery Bacchus. Likened to the smells of hawthorn and elderflower blossoms, it’s a veritable walk in the English countryside. Sappy and mouthwatering it’s a perfect aperitif but we’ve found it goes rather well up against some basil pesto sauce too.
