Zoom new vintage tasting

I miss our wine tasting events.  The sounds of people chatting, the buzz from tasting multiple wines in a short space of time and the sense of pride from seeing so many appreciative reactions all belong to the time before Covid.

It may be foolish, but on 1st April we are going to create a virtual alternative.

Time: 18:30 – 20:00
Venue: your place via Zoom. Email richard.boden@grandmayne.net to join.

We’ll be tasting the new vintages 2018 Merlot Cabernet, 2020 Rosé, Reserve Merlot Cabernet 2018, Reserve Sauvignon/Sémillon 2018, Fusion red 2018 and Sauvignon 2019 (The new 2020 will be bottled later this year).

It will be a fun and informative evening with our winemaker Mathieu and others from the Grand Mayne team. A tasting case is available here containing the wines at only £60 (remember to log in or use DISCOUNT25 code) or you can just join in without the wines by emailing Richard here and I’ll send you the Zoom log in details.


Rosé 2020 available

Our 2020 Rosé was bottled a few weeks back, and has now safely arrived in our UK warehouse. I am always a little apprehensive when tasting new vintages: will it be as good as last year?

I needn’t have worried. It’s really delicious already. Close your eyes and the fresh citrussy delicate aromas evolve in to the fine red fruit of the Cabernet.

It’s got lovely balance, and yes, it made me smile. Winter evenings won’t be so dark now.
