Bodegas Gratias was established in 2007 after a couple of friends decided to make some wine on a whim. The results were so good that they decided to give it a go as a career – If only everything in life were so simple! The ethos of the property is to make wine with as little intervention as possible from organically farmed vineyards planted to grapes which were indigenous to the area.
This is a cracking Pet Nat made from the Tardana grape variety (a new one to us too). Softly textured with a gentle fizz, this is naturally fermented with wild yeasts and bottled with minimal sulphur to finish off the fermentation under crown cap. Gentle floral aromatics, lively fruit on the palate and a fresh, clean finish, this is an absolute joy to drink and one for those who don’t like their Pet Nats too ‘funky’!

NV Blanc de Blancs, Langham Wine Estate, Dorset
Following many ultra-successful vintage releases, the Langham Blanc de Blancs has switched to a non vintage blend following the 2018 vintage. Made with 100% Chardonnay, 61% of which is from the 2019 vintage, and aged on the lees for two years, this is an energetic and wonderfully focussed Blanc de Blancs. The nose displays a tense balance between ripe green apple and conference pear with notes of white flowers and intense graphite minerality. The palate is delicate yet weighty in texture, with soft ripe pear, honeydew melon and white grapefruit acidity, finishing with a trademark saline nuttiness.

This complex Rosé NV is a blend of 59% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier, 36% Chardonnay, and is made from 82% base wine from 2019 and 18% reserve wine. The wine offers aromas aplenty of cherry bakewell, pink lady apple skin, raspberry yoghurt & wild strawberries. The palate reflects this fresh red berry profile, but it is also more serious & has great depth. Cherry yoghurt, young wild strawberry & raspberry coulée bring the fruit profile to the forefront, whilst a more savoury & saline note rounds off the wine.
