Ash's top three wines at the moment are:
Showcasing three of my favourite wines, from three of my favourite female winemakers who I am proud to have worked with and/or call my friends.
Textural, complex, aromatic and utterly compelling. This is a thinking woman's wine - a melange of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Viognier and Pinot Gris. Lightly macerated, this wine is oozing with finesse and energy. Awesome stuff Jannine!
In 2018 something profound happened in the Jura. It was a vintage of excessive quality and quantity, not to be repeated in many vignerons life times. It was a privilege to help make this wine, and more so to drink it. Light, elegant and fruitful. I could happily drink this wine and only this wine for the rest of my days.
An example of just how elegant yet complex Gamay noir can be. Nadine & Agnes have done something pretty special here and I hope this is the first of many 'Elles'. Perfectly suited to the upcoming warmer months, after a long day of soaking up the sunshine. Highly recommend to drink this ever so slightly chilled; the perfect aperitif.
