Unwind this autumn with our Great Minds Drink Alike Collection

Unwind this autumn with our Great Minds Drink Alike Collection

by Chapel Down 05 November 2021

With Autumn now upon us, with its crisp, bright days and cold, dark nights, we would like to introduce our latest wines from our Great Minds Drink Alike collection. These are a selection of remarkable wines produced by like-minded winemakers from across the globe. The wines are carefully curated by our Head Winemaker, Josh Donaghay-Spire, and available exclusively from our Chapel Down winery shop and website.

With these latest wines, we have once again partnered with our friends at Domaine Gayda to bring you a pair of fantastic quality, full bodied red wines. Based in the foothills of the French Pyrenees, they have a fully organic vineyard estate grown on diverse terroirs throughout the Languedoc. This, coupled with their innovative winemaking approach, adds a unique character to each wine they produce. They are also perfect for enjoying as the nights begin to draw in.

Relax this autumn with these two sophisticated red wines:

GMDA No.6 Syrah 2020

Producer: Domaine Gayda

Region: Pays d’Oc, France

Variety: 100% Syrah

This full bodied red wine has bold aromas of sweet red berries and black pepper but was specifically selected for its depth in flavour. The palate is rich with subtle oak character and fine tannins leading to a long finish. The spicy Syrah notes and deep fruit profile will bring out the best of braised beef or lamb, making it ideal to enjoy with a traditional Sunday lunch.

6btl case:  £90.00

GMDA No.7 La Livinière 2019

Producer: Domaine Gayda

Region: La Livinière, France

Variety: 90% Syrah, 10% Grenache

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the finest vineyards in La Livinière, Southern France. The resulting wine is deep and brooding with aromas of dark fruit compote and vanilla spice. The palate is intense with flavours of dark chocolate and vanilla oak which is complemented by smooth, silky tannins and a rich, indulgent finish. A perfect partner to slow cooked casseroles or grilled lamb cutlets.

6btl case: £150.00
