Cool

Cider/fermented/yeast flavours are definitely not uncommon in low-intervention wines but are by no means standard- some producers aim for those notes and some avoid them. I’d say just keep trying everything until you find something that really does it for you.

Ok the last few to give you an idea; Come walk with me is a Grenache blanc that has this mad fragrant aroma and taste of lychee with a clean saline finish

The Tschida kapitel is bold black currant and black currant leaf

The Lammidia bianco tastes like tinned pineapple

The Caneille is cider apple in smell and taste

The Barry is very light in body but full of raspberry/cherry vimto flavours

I have not really drank wine for some time, mainly because it was getting prohibitively expensive for the bigger, bolder Zins and Shiraz I ordinarily liked. Something wholly unsubtle and full of berry and smoke notes would be wonderful

Well I´d recommend starting with something from Frank Cornelissen - Munjebel, or even Magma if you want to go in on something high end. If you can find 2018 Susucaru Rosso that would be a great budget option - the 2019 might be too light for your tastes. The Le Coste rosso range also sounds like it could be for you, super available and nicely priced. If you like smokey flavours and you want to try them in something a bit different then I´d recommend looking at skin contact white wines as well.

Just ordered a few bottles from lowintervention, great find this thread Cool Have tried a few natural wines here and there but never bought any for my self.

Has anyone subscribed for their monthly shipment plan? Is it worth it - are there quality wines included or just a bunch of surplus stuff they want to get rid of?

Tbh they don’t buy anything not good so probably worth it until you’ve worked out what you like best

Last few, the athingmill was interesting to say the least, A blend of basically everything grown on the Tillingham estate. 9 different grapes plus a little splash of cider

Decent table wine to have in for the price. Red is ok too

Not had Maddies Lips but rated Little Bastard so will have a look for a bottle

Those Gut Oggau wines are decent.
Try Theodora if you haven’t already, probably my favourite white at the moment.

I'm on that lowintervention site and also twistedcellar and thinking it's a bad idea to just pick bottles based on the labels.

Anyone tried this?

I just picked up a fresh pallet and this fruity, earthy Grenache /Cinsault goodness is one of the highlights

I got a few of these but probably won’t move them on, it’s got a slightly crude acidity to it

The col19 was the pick of these, better than the 18 which was great in itself.
