Remember the first time you fell under the spell of wine? More likely than not, it was the 'nose' that drew you in; perhaps an evocative sniff, or a waft of something different yet familiar, or even the shock that a beverage could be so wonderfully scented. We return to those origins with this fortnight's bundles: aromatic whites and fragrant reds.

Our aromatic whites include the rare Chinon Blanc from Baudry, the Mediterranean-Californian beauty which is Steve Edmunds' Heart of Gold and an old favourite, the Wolfer Riesling from Daniel Vollenweider.

 

There are six bottles in the bundle. It is made up of:

  • 1 x 2018 Bernard Baudry Chinon Blanc
  • 1 x 2018 Edmunds St. John «Heart of Gold»
  • 1 x 2017 Eric Texier Côtes du Rhône Adèle
  • 1 x 2018 Birichino Malvasia Bianca
