This was good this weekend. Have mainly tried natural whites/pet nat before but will definitely try more natural reds after this!

For a start, ask NigelBenn if he picked up any VA in the Munjebel….

You just haven’t tried the right wines for you. I’m happy to make some recommendations if you like?

would be great to try one that doesnt taste a bit like old rosie. i just have this impression now that they all have this slightly scrumpy aftertaste; which is absolutely fine if that is what natural wines are all about and are "meant" to taste like. just not really my thing and i am completely fine with admitting that and sticking to a pinotage

Yeah actually as per your earlier suggestions I have a couple of bottles from Frank Cornelissen waiting to be opened.

FWIW this style doesn’t do it for me so much and I only occasionally drink this style these days - if anyone has these kind of preconceptions about low-intervention I always suggest they reset by trying this:

And this:

Two wines that I’ve drunk more of than any other.

If you’re looking for something south of £30 I’d say start here -
