Chenin No. 5 The Liberator, Ep. 29 - Bottle OFFER

RRP £10.75 / Offer - £9.00

This is a serious Chenin Blanc with oak ageing that  will gain complexity in bottle over the next few years. Richard doesn't have his own vineyard, he doesn't grow grapes and he isn't part of a cooperation. What he does do is gets his hands on great wines that are resigned to a tragic fate of being blended away or disposed of in bulk and... Liberates them into a wine with character all of its very own. These wines could have originally been an occasional experimental batch by the original winemaker, or possibly an interesting off-cut from some proud winemaker’s latest premium release. This particular bottling comes from the generous, post-drought 2019 vintage and was destined to be part of a new project which failed to materialise and ultimately was considered surplus to requirements.
