2018 Tabula Rasa #V18 Red, Wild & Wilder, South Australia
"The design and packaging of Tabula Rasa...suggest informal, easy-drinking, unpretentious wines, and so it proves. Choosing a 50-cl bottle serves a segment of the market that is chronically under-represented while keeping the price safely under £10 per bottle. And, thankfully, the quality of the wine itself is very good too." Richard Hemming MW
Wine of the Week on Friday 15th Feb 2019 on JancisRobinson.com
"The red is 76% Grenache (mostly from old vines in McLaren Vale), plus 10% Shiraz, 9% Mataro and 5% Carignan, and it was the more delicious of the pair, for me. The sweet, juicy bramble fruit of the Grenache has excellent purity and clarity, benefiting greatly from its youthfulness. Despite the 14.5% alcohol, it is dangerously drinkable and would benefit from being lightly chilled..." Richard Hemming MW
Wild & Wilder is all about good clean fun. Working hand in hand with their merry (in a good season) band of growers, they craft wines of supreme quality but don’t take it all too seriously. Great fruit, grown by great people and made with a lot of love by people that know that wine is all about the good times, delicious food and creating great memories. Founded by Giles Cooke MW & Fergal Tynan MW, the mundane is just not in their DNA. Being involved in every stage of the winemaking process from bud burst to bottle means that every bottle from Wild & Wilder is an experience you’ll want to try again.
14.5% ABV. Suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.
