Interest in the ‘natural wine’ scene is exploding, but with so many categorisations associated with bringing wine back-to-basics, it can be challenging to pigeonhole the purest expressions of the grape.
‘Natural wine’, in its most basic form, is fermented grape juice with no additives and nothing filtered or removed. The wine is made (in the main) by small, artisanal winemakers who accurately reflect the growing conditions of the particular harvest.
The wine is unfiltered, and as a result, these natural expressions can be incredibly fresh and beautifully expressive of their terroir; however, on the flip side of that coin, they can be unpredictable, with a raw edge that is often questioned by consumers and wine critics alike.
Join our sommeliers on 1st August, who will guide Members through a Masterclass tasting of a selection of ‘natural wines’, with the aim of ironing out a few creases of these (re-) emerging classifications.
