What's in the case?
Blue Monday is the third Monday of the year and supposedly the most depressing day of the year! We’ve created the Anti-Blue Monday Case to fight those blues! Filled with wines that put a smile on our faces, the Anti-Blue Monday Case is your remedy to those January Blues.
Lyme Bay Bacchus Block
Firstly, the Lyme Bay Bacchus Block offers a clean nose of intense and powerful grapefruit freshness, broad tropical-fruit notes and gooseberry. The palate on the Lyme Bay Bacchus Block is long and citrus-dominated, with a lemon & lime finish with a good mouth and great length.
Secondly, the Nutbourne Bacchus is an outstanding dry white wine that is crisp, fresh and enticing, made from 100% Bacchus grapes. A pronounced distinctive elderflower bouquet is followed by delicate gooseberries and a botanical aromatic finish. Bacchus is the signature varietal for English still white wine. It is a modern crossbred grape variety developed to produce an attractive, fruity single varietal wines. “What grows together goes together” – this is a perfect pairing for English asparagus, heritage tomatoes, Sussex lamb and stone-fruit desserts.
Bluebell Vineyard Ashdown Rosé
Thirdly, the Bluebell Vineyard Ashdown Rosé has aromas of white peach, apricot, and ripe strawberry. This leads to flavours of cherry, nectarine, and blackcurrant on the palate, creating a wine that is well balanced with a lovely long finish. Vivid and bold in colour, it is both full bodied and bone dry making it excellent as a mouth-watering and refreshing summer wine. Bluebell Vineyard Ashdown Rosé is also perfect as an aperitif. Or pair with salted almonds, smoked duck or cured meats, and summer fruit desserts.
Saffron Grange Seyval Blanc
Next, the Saffron Grange Seyval Blanc, from the spectacular 2018 vintage, is 100% Seyval Blanc. This wine has been made using the traditional method and has aged for 24 months on the lees. The nose is packed with elderflower, citrus and soft caramel. On the palate there are notes of lemon tart, a subtle minerality and a lingering, creamy finish. Undoubtedly, a fantastic wine!
The Woodchurch Rosé is made from Pinot Noir Burgundy clones 828 and 943. These are all grown on the single estate vineyard in Woodchurch. The wine is made by the talented Mattheiu Elzinga of Litmus Wines who is well known for making drinkable and epic wines. Woodchurch Rosé is salmon pink in colour and displays an abundance of fresh raspberry, strawberries and cream character on the nose. On the palate the strawberries and cream come through with a vibrant, dry and refreshing acidity that leads to a balanced and long lived finish.
Bride Valley Dorset Crémant
Finally, the Bride Valley Dorset Crémant has a fresh light yellow colour touched with hints of lemon. The continuous pin-prick bubbles show the bottle fermented effervescence. The Bride Valley Dorset Crémant has a much less aggressive fizz. It is fantastically creamy, backed by hints of white flowers and white summer fruits.
