A pannier of … Apples


This panier de fruits is quite a find for lovers of wines off the beaten track.

This fruit basket is definitely heavily biased towards the apple orchards. The first impression on the nose is an attractive, very ripe apple skin aroma, maybe some ripe red variety with some aromatic herbal flower note.

The surprise is the crisp, fresh, mouth cleansing acid tang of the perfect autumnal apple, bright, life enhancing, and indulgent. Then the rich fruit tang starts to open up and show some oxidative character that combines the autumn fruit with a dash of honey, wild herbs and a warm, baked citrus note too.

A Wine worth seeking out and a perfect match for the fatty, indulgent dishes at Brawn in London
