London Cru is London's first urban winery with a small team who take pride in producing quality wines by sourcing beautiful grapes from across England (and sometimes further afield) and crafting them in their old Victorian warehouse that was once a gin distillery.
Their wines are named after streets and areas across London, so the two we're bringing to you are their "Chancery Street" Chardonnay and "Barbican" Barbera 2015...
London Cru helped us on our way when we set up the winery as we bought our press and some tanks and barrels from them, which funnily enough their Barbera 2015 was actually produced in - so we've come full circle on this one!
More on the wines:
London Cru's 2015 Barbican was made in London from Barbera grapes grown in north-west Italy.
It is a medium-bodied, bright and refreshing red with brambly fruit flavours. Bright and pure, with brambly fruit flavours; lovely freshness and balance.
The grapes for Barbican 2015 were grown in Piedmont, Italy, and the wine made in London. 100% Barbera, the wine was aged on its fine lees in French oak, with 10% new barrels.
Lovely to drink on release, but with the potential to improve over five years or so. Try this with tomato or meat-based pasta dishes.
London Cru’s Chancery Lane 2017 is a deliciously fresh, Chablis-style expression of Chardonnay, grown in Sussex and vinified by their cool-climate specialist winemaker, in their urban winery in Fulham.
Aromas of fresh green apples, pears and a touch of freshly-baked bread.
Light and delicate in the mouth, with soft, rounded texture and a long, mineral finish.
London Cru’s winemaker has worked extensively in Austria and Germany, and specialises in cool-climate wines.
Drink up to 5 years after release.
Match with a plate of Lindisfarne oysters, or a fresh English garden salad!
Our Maximilian 2019 has developed some beautiful smooth flavours since it was released, the acid has toned down and the oak flavours have become integrated and rich.
Like many red wines the Maximilian contains a harmless sediment in the bottle, so we recommend decanting before drinking which also lets the flavours open up.
Enjoy with red meats, cheese & charcuterie.
Our This Mortal Angel is a gorgeously refreshing white semi-sparkling wine, we always call it our little bit of affordable luxury! If you like the zing of delicate bubbles then you're sure to enjoy a glass or two of this.
