FU Manchu Mourvedre Rosato 2022


Savoury, skinsy and lip-smackingly dry, this is a great starting point if you'd like to step into the world of natural wines.

Made with minimal intervention, the wines are unfined and unfiltered.

It's worth noting that these FU Manchu wines are not overly hipster but it's an each way bet, that's for sure. I'd happily recommend this for that exploration and to stretch your experiences that little bit further. There is a good chance you'd reach for another glass in quick time. 

Made with Mourvedre (or Mataro as many may know it), think peach skin, dried cranberries and sour red cherries drive the fruit profile before neat touches of orange peel, puffs of earthiness and fine exotic spices go about their work. There is some tension and a firm hand in its delivery. Long and deliciously moreish, this has pool yard hangs and a bag of chips covered, or equally so, it wouldn't be out of place at a casual barbecue. The ripples of spice seem endless drying the mouth out ever so subtly. A big yes from me.

Drink now.
