Remember I wrote about the new TGF white wine?
Well, the bad news is that I reacted to it, despite the fact that is is made the same way as the red which I am great with. Bum 😦 Nasty migraine – albeit took til next day to come on and lasted 36 hours so not as bad as it could have been.
This could just be me – maybe a yeast or mould thing on the grapes, who knows? My advice would be to get a sample bottle first. Shucks, no glass of chilled white for me then this Summer. Will stick to the cold sparkling apple juice and water!
In case you are on the hunt for some low sulphite natural wines not aged or stored in ex-grain barrels, I recently asked which other wines by Domaine Viret, who make the red wine, might be suitable for TGFs. Here’s their reply:
The following wines from Domaine Viret don’t use any wood at all:
Colonnades, Renaissance, Yang, SoLo Navitas (this is the red),
Solstice rosé, Cosmoviniviti rosé
Aurum (this is the one I tried and reacted to)
Let me know how you get on if you try any of them.
