Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.
Here’s a definition of natural wine from Isabella the crazy French woman:
‘There is no official definition of ‘natural wine’ so here is one that I have come up with after a lot of tasting, reading and talking to producers. Natural wine is made from grapes that are, at a very minimum, farmed organically or biodynamically, harvested manually and then made without adding / or removing anything during the vinification process. Ideally nothing is added at all but – at most – there might be a dash of SO2 at bottling. A handful of farmers manage to produce great wines without adding any SO2 whatsoever. It’s basically good old grape juice fermented into wine. As nature intended. The cellar is simply the place to guide what is fundamentally a naturally occurring phenomenon rather than a high-tech lab, full of gadgets and sacks of sugar, tartaric acid and powdered tannins. It is still a small movement, which isn’t particularly well known but it is time to take it seriously.’
Someone after my own heart.
