Blackbook Winery, £17.50

Country: Essex, UK
 
A beautiful electric shade of red, the taste is reminiscent of a bowl of freshly picked English berries and cream. Great texture, but really approachable, I love Blackbook Winery’s avant-garde labels which are made in collaboration with young art students in London. The urban winery is based in Battersea with tastings run by the charming and charismatic owner/winemaker Sergio.
 
Pair It With: Gastronomic fish and chicken dishes, a good group of friends and background Balearic beats.
