The Oddbins Take

It was dear-old Sir Isaac Newton, while desperately scrambling to grab a Granny Smith that was recalcitrantly floating off in the direction of Neptune, that thought it would be great if stuff stayed on Earth and thus invented gravity.

It’s been terribly useful, both in the base-jumping community and among young trail-blazing winemakers. For with the most innovative, gravity-fed wineries are all the rage. Producers such as Lechburg, design their wineries over several floors, so grapes and must is moved purely by gravity, with no need for pumps or conveyor belts, allowing wine to be moved around much more gently. This is highly advantageous as too much force during vinification can result in wines that are over-extracted and over-tannic, losing nuance and aromatics. Not to mention, less machines means a smaller ‘carbon footprint!’

Sounds pretty great, right? And that’s before you’ve even experienced the powerful aromatic profile of this Gewürztraminer with a full-body and rounded palate of lychee, tropical fruit, bergamot peel and saffron. God bless you Sir Isaac!

    Do as the Romanians Do! - Mixed Case of 6 Wines

    As low as: £87.75

    Considering our head buyer, Ana Sapungiu MW, was the first ever female Romanian Master of Wine, we feel fairly confident declaring that we have the finest selection of Romanian wines on the internet. O yeah, we went there ‘Romanian-Wines-R-Us.com’! Romania has gone through a bit of a wine revolution over the last 10 years, talented young winemakers have planted new vineyards, brought in new winery equipment and focused on indigenous grape varieties with a sense of place. It’s an exciting time to get into Romanian wine and we feel this mixed case of 6 is the best place to start!
