Due to the upgrading of the Justerini & Brooks computer systems, there will be a few days where it will be necessary to deactivate the ability to nominate delivery dates on the website. We will continue to receive your orders and process these but there may be delays to delivery of wines while we migrate all our data to our new system. We will be operating as normal from Monday 19th October. Thank you for your patience.

Tasting Note:

A focused nose leads into grassy herbal notes before Thai green papaya salad, mango and lime leaf, white peaches, and a touch of pineapple emerges with air. A more understated style in 2019 with clear aging potential. Predominantly Chenin Blanc on granitic soils with an old vine focus. Grenache Blanc from the Kasteelberg adds a bit of breadth and intensity derived from schist soils, while the Verdelho, a new addition, counteracts it with freshness and saltiness to add another level of complexity. A classy expression of Aristargos. Nothing oily here, just silky, layered fruit. Chenin blanc (47%), Sémillon (13%), Clairette blanche (11%), Viognier (10%), Marsanne (8%), Roussanne (6%), Verdelho (3%) and Grenache blanc (2%). Whole bunch pressed, fermented naturally, and raised in neutral French oak casks for 11 months. The grapes from the two Sémilllon vineyards were fermented on their skins for a week before being pressed and matured in a 2,500L foudré for a year. 13% ABV.
