The rise and popularity of organic wine seems to be on the increase , especially in the EU countries with the likes of France and Spain leading the way producing wines where the vineyards are growing grapes using no contact with artificial chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers.
So it’s good to see that some of these organic wines are now prominent in a lot of high street wine outlets and a lot of them very affordable and on the whole for the ones I’ve tasted pretty good quality.
Tierra Sagrada Blanco organic wine 2019
This Tierra Sagrada (literally Holy Land) white wine from Waitrose priced at £6.99 is a fabulous example of just how good organic wine can be even at this entry level price range.
A blend of Verdejo 80% with a splash of Sauvignon Blanc this is a very green and leafy tasting wine. Aromas of citrus fruits mainly lemons, limes with a distinctive whiff of fresh herbs. Taste wise there is more tropical fruits noticeable, some melon and peach but the citrus still dominate, although there is a slight sweetness which will appeal to some. As I said there is a green herbal leafy aftertaste which adds a little more character and overall for an entry level wine, this pretty much ticks all the boxes.
Enjoyed by all who tasted it and definitely one to buy again, a well made organic Spanish affordable white wine, what’s not to like.
