Garibaldi Astral Biodynamic Brut NV

£22.99 £19.99

Another first from Go Brazil, as we launch the only Demeter-certified biodynamic Brazilian wine on the UK market – and just recently featured in the Guardian newspaper’s ‘Feast’ supplement. Read here: Guardian

Produced by Garibaldi, a highly respected co-operative comprising some 450 member families, this is a limited edition NV Trad Method* sparkler made with both Chardonnay (75%) and Pinot Noir (25%) grapes, under their prestigious Astral label.

Bright and clean with green apple, citrussy fresh notes on the nose, then with an intriguing tang of orange or tangerine on the palate. A generous mousse is followed by persistent fine bubbles, with autolytic bready/brioche aromas also apparent. Dry and lowish in alcohol, this is an elegant fizz – almost Extra Brut in style.

Our July 2024 Wine of the Month – and stunning value at this temporarily reduced price!

Vegetarian & vegan friendly.

11% Abv, 6gm/ltr. res. sugar.

*We previously described this wine, incorrectly, as being produced using the ‘Long Charmat’ Method. The Garibaldi winery have assured us however that it is made under the Traditional Method (‘Método Tradicional’ as per the bottle label) and has enjoyed one year’s ageing on the lees. Apologies for any confusion!
