A madcap blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Pinot Noir and Pinotage, with 16% white grape varieties blended in too. Very juicy, very drinkable! Serve chilled – lots of strawberry juice, cherry and earthy notes too, blackcurrant leaf and pomegranate. It’s a fun little wine to not be taken too seriously. Like Pieter’s answer to a Beaujolais-villages and ultimate ‘vin de soif.’
Originally founded in 1960, the Jourdain estate has been run since 1990 by Sophie Siadou and her partner Francis
Jourdain. Together, they sustainably farm 28 hectares of vines, from which they craft their brilliant range of honest, regionally expressive wines. Although the winery functions as a family affair, it was Sophie’s unique vision that informed this specific bottling, to which she has lent her name.
Reflecting her holistic approach to the ecosystem of the vineyard and her careful attention to the nuances of her terroir, this wine was allowed to ferment naturally, using only the indigenous ambient yeasts present in the surrounding environment. The wine spends 18 months on its lees in older, neutral barrels.

Josten & Klein is a new winery that offers high-quality white and red wines from the two Rhineland-Palatinate wine-growing regions of Ahr and Mittelrhein.
With around 560 hectares, the Ahr is one of the smallest wine-growing regions in Germany. But that doesn’t detract from its class. As the largest closed red wine growing area in Germany and at the same time as the northernmost area for red vines, it has developed into a wine region of great renown over the past two decades. This is a classic style of Pinot Noir. Ripe flavours of sweet and sour cherry and bramble fruit. Soft tannins and acidity keeps the finish fresh and long.

Their wines are fermented using only wild yeasts (found on the skin of the grape and in the air) and minimal intervention to allow them to express the character of the individual vineyard sites. The Mornington Peninsula – south of Melbourne – is famed for the quality of their Pinot Noir and this wine is no exception.
Red and black cherry fruit on the nose and palate with a slight savoury undertone on the finish. Mouth watering acidity, firm tannins and a long lingering finish makes this an outstanding wine. We love it!

Maxime Dubuet-Boillot is a winemaker to keep an eye on – grandson of Pierre Boillot and currently the assistant winemaker at Domaine Remoriquet. His Volnay Sur Roches comes from 60-year-old vines and appears to be ‘only’ village-level Volnay. Sweet red berry fruit – strawberry, raspberry, sweet spices and a little wood. Very drinkable now but could keep for a decade or two (if you can wait that long!).
In the heart of Volnay this is an estate that was handed over to the son 8 years ago. Pierrick has since won the title of ‘Young Vigneron of the Year’ from Bourgogne Aujourdhui magazine. He uses minimal sulphur, none during fermentation and lets the wines evolve naturally. The results are wines with very pure fruit, not masked by oak, silky tannins and really good length. They are fantastic Volnay and taste just as Volnay should.
