Tasting notes


Meaning 'The Earth' in Gaelic (the owners are Scottish), Urlar is run to organic and biodynamic principles. You get what you expect here, but that classic gooseberry fruit is relatively restrained, complemented by pleasing, herbaceous lime flavours, plus a squeeze of passion fruit. (16 points) £10.99
