This is a wine that can divide a room. It won't be to everybody's taste, thanks to the strong mineral and maritime influence that informs the wine, but for us, this is what great white Burgundy would taste like if the grapes grew on a volcano (and these do!). The nose has the chiselled mineral cut of a flinty Puligny-Montrachet allied to a dry, salty, Jura-like tang. It’s a thrillingly wild, sea-sprayed shipwreck of lemons, grapefruit, crushed rocks, and smoked almonds… the sort of wine that whets your appetite in a distinctly Spanish way, like a fino sherry but without the surplus alcohol. We make no apologies for loving this style of white wine, and acknowledge that it won’t please every palate, but if, like us, you crave these pithy, sappy, unfiltered wines informed by the vineyard’s soil and microclimate, then don’t hesitate. Oh, and don’t drink it all on day one, it’s even better on day two and three and four. 13.5% alc. Drink now-2021.

Customer comments (previous vintage):

"We tried the Trenzado the other night. Never tasted anything quite like it, but we really liked it. And then we ended up drinking it with food that happened to be a lot saltier than we're used to, and the salty taste in the wine receded almost completely and the other flavours really came out. I can't tell you how exciting this is. New wines that we actually like. It feels very grown up." - Mr J.M. (24th April 2015)
