Wine Press Mixed Case Offer
£175.00

We think all of these wines are commendable, as do the journalists who are quoted below!

This mixed case contains two bottles each of:

SPARKLING WHITE:
IGP Méditerranée: Domaine Saint Gayan 'Argiles' Blanc 2019
"Yapp are the best at seeking out secret French fabulousness and this lemony gem is a prime example. Vim and scrumptiousness – if you're a fan of Picpoul de Pinet, this is the bottle to grab."
Olly Smith - ollysmith.com

Lirac: Domaine Maby 'La Fermade' Blanc 2019
"The 2019 Domaine Maby 'La Fermade' Lirac Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Picpoul, part steel- and part oak-fermented. Floral and herbal, with plenty of succulent fruit, it's very appealing."
Jonathan Ray - The Spectator.

Forest Hill Vineyard: 'Estate' Riesling 2019
"With the influence of the Southern Ocean, this is an elegant cool-climate Riesling from three different plots in this extensive vineyard in the Mount Barker region of the Great Southern in Western Australia. Lively and tight. Bone dry. I wonder whether Clare or Eden Valley could offer better value? Although this is such a famous vineyard. Tangy finish. Drink 2020 – 2025. 16 points."
Jancis Robinson OBE, MW. - JancisRobinson.com

RED:
Crozes Hermitage: Domaine Equis 'Equinoxe' 2018
"On the palate, very fresh and fluid with good acidity running through the raspberry and strawberry fruits. Light and snappy, gluggable northern Rhône Syrah enjoyable with or without food. Contemporary in style, fruit all destemmed. Drink 2020-21. 90/100."
Matt Walls - Decanter Magazine.

Beaujolais en Besset: Domaine de Fa 2018
"Rich aromas of plums, wild berries, smoked meats, rose hips and spices introduce the 2018 Beaujolai's En Besset, a medium-bodied, ample and fleshy wine that's round and enveloping, with ripe acids and melting tannins. Gourmand and savory, this will drink well young. Drink 2020 - 2022."
William Kelley - robertparker.com

Faugères: Château Estanilles 'Vallongue' Rouge 2017
"My second warming red is from the appellation of Faugères, which lies west of Montpellier in the Languedoc. The grapes are organically grown – a blend of syrah (45 per cent), grenache, carignan and mourvèdre (5pc), part of it aged in oak. It's superb, broad and savoury, a real treat."
Victoria Moore - The Telegraph.

This mixed case includes

2 x IGP Méditerranée: Domaine Saint Gayan 'Argiles' Blanc 2019£0.00

This hand-harvested, IGP Méditerranée blanc is a terrific thirst-quencher for al fresco imbibing, picnics or a trip to the seaside at the height of summer!

2 x Lirac: Domaine Maby 'La Fermade' Blanc 2019£0.00

White Lirac is deserving of wider recognition, and the Domaine Maby bottling is a is a fine example - a blend of Grenache Blanc and Clairette that is given some welcome freshness by Piquepoul. A wine that drinks well on its own but is a shoo-in with seafood.

2 x Forest Hill Vineyard: 'Estate' Riesling 2019£0.00

This concentrated zingy New World Riesling from cool-climate vineyards in Mount Barker was a huge hit with the team when we sampled it at Yapp HQ. Exuberant, yet restrained, the quality of the fruit and minimal intervention in the winery shines through giving this Riesling an intensity and energy that will mature well over several years.

2 x Crozes Hermitage: Domaine Equis 'Equinoxe' 2018£0.00

The Graillot family is famous for producing fruit-forward accessible red wines made from the Syrah grape. The Crozes Hermitage 'Equinoxe' is an excellent, youthful example, crammed with dark, hedgerow-fruit scents and flavours offset by supple tannins. This wine makes an ideal partner to red meat dishes or flavoursome, hard cheeses.
Bottled under screwcap.

2 x Beaujolais en Besset: Domaine de Fa 2018£0.00

The Graillot family recently acquired 5 hectares of vines in the cru of Saint Amour (in the climat of Côte de Besset) from which this charming, juicy Beaujolais is produced - alongside a full St-Amour.

2 x Faugères: Château Estanilles 'Vallongue' Rouge 2017£0.00

A spicy, mid-weight organic red Faugères wine comprised in this vintage of 45% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 15% Carignan, and 5% Mourvèdre. Food-wise, bavette frîtes, confit du canard or a fricassee of wild mushrooms would be ideal.
