Vintage Roots Trade Tasting 2014

Vintage Roots

Congratulations to 25-year old Vintage Roots on their March 2014 trade tasting. A good selection of interesting wines from a company committed to promoting organic and biodynamic wines at affordable prices.

A couple of cracking sparklers to start with:-

Among the white wines, the ones I really liked were:-

Quinta do Romeu were also represented and I particularly enjoyed their Rosé 2013, made from three Portuguese grape varieties. Lovely berry and stone fruit notes.

Among the reds, there was a similarly enticing mix of styles:-

The sweet wine on show was Château Dudon Sauternes 2011. Smooth and fruity with notes of apricots, grapes and honey, backed up by good acidity, this is a food-friendly sweet wine that would go particularly well with blue cheese. £17.50 RRP.

Organic drinks

Good to see some organic beers and ciders on show too. It's always a pleasure to taste Freedom Brewery's Organic Dark Lager and I also particularly enjoyed Stroud Brewery's Organic Budding Pale Ale and Dunkerton's Organic Perry.
