Mineral wines are ideal for those looking to step away from typical fruit, herb or spice notes in wine, instead enjoying a more earthy flavour that comes from this minerality. Mineral wines are subject to much debate in the wine community, with many experts trying to define exactly what gives the wine it’s earthy taste. Many people experience smelling and tasting wet stones, flint and chalk when they enjoy a mineral wine, a unique taste and smell that’s becoming more popular each year.
At Natural Vine we offer a wide selection of mineral wines including the celebrated Domaine de Montcy Cheverny Blanc 2014. This complex wine is dry, fresh and racy with notes of dried fruits, perfect enjoyed on its own or served with grilled fish. Fresh with minerality and a lively acidity, the L’Enclos des Braves Lenclos Sec 2011 offers fruit notes of peach, elderflower and pear. We recommend serving with white meats or terrines.
