Blackbook 'The Mix-up'

Bacchus & Ortega from Kent, with a touch of skin contact, made in London. 

Blackbook Winery is situated at the end of a row of railway arches in Battersea. Brought up in the USA, Sergio was a sommelier in a previous life, moving to London to work in some of the city's top Michelin starred restaurants before making the switch and and studying winemaking at Plumpton College in Sussex. After travelling around the world developing his skills, he settled in south London with wife Lynsey and their two children, installing this most unique of wineries and in our opinion, making some of the UK's most exciting still wines. 

The Mix-Up is, well, a mix up of Bacchus and Ortega from a vineyard in Kent. The Bacchus, considered by some as an English alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, is pressed and fermented in stainless steel, while the Ortega, a variety we see a strong future for, is fermented on its skins before being pressed, ending up in old French oak barrels. Finally the two are blended before bottling. One of the most interesting, textural, aromatic English wines we've ever tasted.
