“I knew I would find a really different white wine when I went hunting in Rueda – a friend who runs a wine shop in Madrid cannot get enough of it. I discovered top quality wine-making, a charming family dedicated to their cause, a set of flavours unlike any other wine I have tasted, and a price so good I had trouble keeping my “negotiator face” on.”
Austere can be a comparative term, identifying where one wine is more tannic, dryer, less fruity and leaner in flavour than another.
Four months in, and this is the Good Wine Hunter story so far.
April 2015 saw the launch of GoodWineHunter.co.uk onto the wine market. Using the power of the WWW and social media I was very excited by the digital innovation we were bringing to the wine market via a series of online ‘flash’ sales direct from the wine producer to the consumer, in just a few clicks!
When out hunting, I always get a huge kick finding just the wine I was looking for. However, when I come across an absolute gem, with an an untold story, that makes the day even better.
Taste some excellent and unusual wines and find out why we are different from your average wine supplier.
Our website went live this week, as you can see, which is very exciting. At last, the idea which has been in my mind for so long is now becoming a reality. Please have a look and let me know what you think.
If you drive towards the French Alps, you pass the town of Chambery, and then hang a left to take the motorway towards Albertville. As you turn left, a massive cliff of a mountain looms on your left, towering above the valley. At the foot of the cliff, running in a narrow band up into the valley, lie some of the best vineyards in Savoie. Savoie appellations are pretty complicated, especially the white ones, but they are worth getting to know.
The principal product at Veiga Serantes is their D.O Rias Baixas Albarino. A bottle of Veiga Serantes wine is immediately recognisable, with its fresh burst of fruity acidity, making me think of lemons and grapefruit.
Acid in wine is mainy a feature of white wine, and it is what makes your mouth water when you take that sip.
