Grape – Siegerrebe/Solaris
Where – Wiltshire, England
What – Offbeat Wines are an extremely exciting English producer heralding from the Wiltshire hills. If their location isn’t intriguing enough for you, try the fact that they focus on producing wines whilst keeping environmental preservation and sustainability at the forefront. The Mind Over Matter is going to fly off the shelves, for sure.
This beautifully aromatic pet nat is a field blend of Siegerrebe and Solaris grapes grown in Devon. After hand-picking and destemming the grapes, a small proportion are foot trod and the rest pressed as whole bunches before joining together in the amphora. To produce the light fizz, the wine was bottled through gravity alone and naturally stabilised cold over the winter months. As with all wines by these guys, they’re unfined, unfiltered and no sulphites have been added.
The result is a big, bright and refreshing natural white wine. You can expect white flower and blossom aromas on the nose before lemon drizzle, pear and hibiscus on the palate. The Mind Over Matter is the wine you want stored away for the next scorching summer day. It's a proper crowd pleasing treat.
