Thomas Pinot Noir 2018
Thomas exemplifies exactly why urban wine is so exciting. This Pinot Noir is handcrafted in the UK using fruit grown in Lombardy, Italy. This area has a very similar climate to Burgundy, which is widely considered the world’s premier and classic region for this grape variety. However, the wine has been made in a modern, concentrated, almost Oregon-like style. So, you’re literally getting all the cherrypicked best bits in one bottle. Brimming with summer berry fruit, cherries, red apple skins, prunes, moist tobacco, black tea and an intensity reminiscent of Tawny Port; we’d love to serve it alongside roast duck or, as it’s vegan friendly, maybe a sun-dried tomato or wild mushroom pasta.
Renegade Urban Winery’s labels include the diverse faces of the British public. Their Pinot Noir features Thomas, a father and cabinet maker. His life has not all been plain sailing of late, but these are things that make us who we are. Renegade describe Thomas as a “cracking bloke”, and the wine really shares that approachable, story-packed and friendly character.
After visiting vineyards and urban wineries around the globe, Warwick Smith was inspired to launch the capital’s second winery, Renegade. His top-quality fruit is sourced from small growers around Europe and is transported to London in refrigerated trucks before being lovingly pressed by hand and foot beneath the train tracks in Bethnal Green, London. As Renegade put it, urban wineries are “breaking the rules one bottle at a time”, making them one of the most exciting things to happen to the industry in a very long time. For that reason, any true wine lover or appreciator of artisanal products needs to be all over the urban winery scene.
