Vern Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Vern is a wine like no other. A vegan-friendly, wild-fermented Bordeaux blend made in the UK using grapes from Albania and matured in a combination of French oak, ex-Bourbon whiskey and new chestnut barrels. We fully understand if you need to take a moment to get your head around all of that.
Renegade Urban Winery’s labels include the diverse faces of the British public. Their blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon features Vern, a Whitechapel resident who works in accounts for a famous East End coffee roaster. It seems like quite a fitting wine for Vern, because the numbers are intriguing and there are notes of freshly roasted coffee amongst the dried red fruits, tobacco smoke, leathery walnuts, juicy cherries, cassis, mint, coconut and vanilla. Big, comforting and immensely charming; this is one to turn to as the winter nights draw in.
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.
