- Núria Altés comes from a long line of grape-growers. From playing in her grandfather’s vines as a child to bottling her first wine with her father’s grapes, Núria is proud of her winemaking roots. So in 2010 Núria and her partner Rafael set up a little winery in the Terra Alta region - called Herència Altés.
- This pale rose is made from 100% Grenache grapes grown from super rare vines ranging from 40 to 90 years old - much like Nuria and Rafael, these vines are seasoned professionals. It's deliciously dry and cooly refreshing with delicate rose and fresh strawberry flavours.
- Lovely with your favourite canapés and especially lovely with sunshine. Or if you fancy tucking this one away for a rainy day that's no biggy for L'Espontania, it's a bottle guaranteed to bring the sunshine to you.
A rich and refined blend of Cab Sav, Syrah and Merlot from a family vineyard established in the 1920s. The beauty of this wine is all in the tradition - Château Coutinel has a century of winemaking history to its name, making this a Rosé of some serious pedigree.
There's nothing dusty about the Arbio Rosé however, as not only does it pack some serious flavour, it's also the winery's first-ever organic wine.
Bursting with oodles of ripe fruit on the palate, this lush Rosé is well-balanced and elegantly-structured with flavours of fresh summer strawberries and juicy red fruit. It’s delicious on its own and takes on a whole new level when enjoyed with chargrilled meats or crispy roast veg, but either way it’ll put a smile on your face.
'We fell in love with the La Xalamera vineyard when we first saw it in 2015 and purchased it the same year. This shallow valley has gently sloping sides where these 50 year old blocks of Garnatxa Negra vines cling onto life. Here the vines struggle to produce a lot of fruit, resulting in high levels of concentration.
We believe this vineyard makes what we believe is the most floral and fragrant Garnatxa Negra, with the perfect ripeness and acidity.
Ethereal nose of red fruits, raspberries, wild strawberries,undergrowth, forest floor, brambles and licorice all feature. The palate is fresh whilst being plush and round from some time spent in Austrian oak casks'
Núria Altés and Rafael de Haan, Winemakers
- You've been crying out for a big, unabashed Barolo for as long as we can remember. And here it is, thanks to the supremely talented Gianfranco and Serena - all the way from the picture-perfect vineyards of Piedmont. This is the REAL top shelf stuff that Italians don't want to give away.
- Known as "the wine of Kings and the King of wines" - this deep, dark and brooding Barolo certainly lives up to its name. Full of deliciously ripe, ruby red fruit flavour, with layer upon layer of caramel-tinged oak and complexity.
- It's no secret that Barolo would normally see you handing over lotsa dosh. But thanks to your funding - you'll only pay for what this wine is worth, and not a penny more. Grab yourself a bottle and go all out with a rich and creamy mushroom risotto, finished with a drizzle of truffle oil. Go on, you deserve it...
- Jean-Claude is totally in tune with his vineyards. He knows them like the back of his hand and that they boast a totally unique combination of conditions - the quality of the soil and air, as well as the exposure to sunlight and wind here produce luxuriously intense flavours that are very hard to come by.
- He exclusively handpicks the best of the best from his vineyards before they are pressed and sent into the cellar for some TLC in traditional oak barrels.
- "Faint honeysuckle notes have an edge of lemon on the nose of this wine. The palate majors on youthful freshness, citrus aroma and fruity ease with its slender, off-dry body. This wine is vivacious and summery."
- Having already made an everyday Tinto and Blanco, there was a wine which was clearly missing...a special rosé.
- I made this wine from selected, estate-grown Tempranillo grapes, allowing the juice contact time with the skins. The result is a generous style of wine - perfect for lovers of powerful rosés.
- Naked Wines Angels are supporting me through funding and enjoying my wines. I could not make any wines without people wanting to buy it. This allows me being honest as a winemaker, creating wines which reflect a sense of place; the hallmark of my winemaking.
- You've been funding Ben to make delicious, downright drinkable reds from the get go. This time, we asked him to take it up a notch and show us what he could do, on the best Southern French soils around. The result is this sensational, showstopper Syrah.
- Full to the brim with plump, ripe blackberries, melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate and a seductively spiced licquorice kick that'll tingle and tease your tastebuds with every mouthful. Rich, rounded, and utterly voluptuous.
- If you're a patient sort, you can lay this down for up to 10 years. If you're like us... you'll be snapping up a bottle - quick sharp - and cracking it open with some sizzling pan seared duck (and anyone else you love enough to share it with).
- This wine is produced from single parcels in the northernmost part of central Castile - my home, and one of Spain’s most underrated wine regions! The high-altitude vineyards are sustainably farmed, to create a deliciously fruity wine with remarkable freshness.
- My commitment with our Angels is to produce the best possible wines for everyday drinking. I really hope you enjoy my bright and lively Verdejo with fresh citrus flavours a round finish, and hints of white pepper.
- As a general rule, if you would put lime in a meal, it will probably pair well with Verdejo - I love it with fish tacos
- Brunello di Montacino is a strong contender for the title of Italy's biggest and grandest wine, right up there with Amarone and the Super Tuscans. It's a good job too, because it means the hard work and hoops that must be jumped in order to make this classy number is all worth while.
- It's a rather fiddly process you see. You need 100% Sangiovese grapes from young vines that are then aged for 5 years, with 2 spent tightly tucked away in barrels. After a grueling wait the end product is finally released on new years day 5 years after the year it was harvested.
- The end product is well worth the wait. Beautifully perfumed with a mix of violets, red berries and truffles. The palate is well structured, with the most delicate touch of tart tannins, amping this rich Italian red up several notches. This Brunello di Montalcino is a real gem for any Italianophile.
