Offbeat Wines are based near Salisbury in Wiltshire and with the aim to produce delicious, low intervention wines with environmental preservation and sustainability as the heart of their entire philosophy. The grapes are pressed in a traditional wooden basket press, fermented spontaniously in a range of vessels including amphora and oak. The winery runs on solar power and the wines do not go through a fining or filtration process. Sulfites are used but in minute quantities - and only when absolutely necessary. Labels are printed on 100% recycled materials. All this makes Offbeat wines a very exciting winery. The wines are clearly subject to our crazy weather and so of course we will find that these wines differ wildly from year to wonderful year.
Mind Over Matter 2019 is an aromatic pet nat made from an organic (uncertified) field blend (Siegerrebe and Solaris) of which 10% has been hand picked and destemmed and then foot trod in an amphora. The remainder of the grapes was whole bunch pressed before being transferred to the same amphora. Spontaniously fermented, the wine was bottled 15 days later to complete fermentation.
This is a juicy little number, peach and floral aromas with a natural fizz, this is a real crowd pleaser.
No added sulfites. No fining and no filtration.
