Young and expressive, its tannins are crunchy, fruit is fresh and appealing. Its bouquet, marked by black fruits, spices, mint and some fresh peppers, evolves and enriches as it goes, giving body and length in the mouth. Charming wine and excellent meal companion.
Intensely Rhone-like on the nose, with notes of honeysuckle, orange zest, anise, and crushed rock. In the mouth, it's lush but vibrant with mandarin orange, nectarine, white flowers, and a saline mid-palate. The long, zesty finish shows citrus pith and sea spray minerality, with a lingering orange blossom note.
Silent Pool have produced the NEW Green Man Woodland Gin, world`s first spirit to be packaged in a cardboard bottle. Not world saving by itself, we admit. But if we`re going to do what`s right by the earth, we figured we`d do it right here, where we live, in Britain`s most wooded county. Lightweight, carbon-friendly and 100% recyclable.
The grapes were sourced from an old bush-vine vineyard in the cool-climate region of Darling on the Cape West Coast. Growing untamed and unbridled in sandy soils and subjected to the maritime airflow off the Atlantic Ocean, the vineyard was selected for its ability to grow grapes offering a superior expression of the site's unique geography.
