The Matthew Clark Wine List for 2021/22 is here! In a year of unprecedented challenges, our wine buying team has been working hard to find wines that hit the ever-changing consumer trends and, more importantly, wines that we absolutely love.
Amongst our exciting range of new producers is Balfour, a family-run English winery in Kent. Balfour have produced sparkling wine since 2002 and have since expanded into White, Red and Rosé still wines. Our wine buyer Richard Masterson says, ‘Richard and Leslie Balfour-Lynn have created a centre of excellence at the Hush Heath Estate on which Balfour’s winemakers, produce a range of great wines highlighting the diversity of styles now produced in England.’
Elsewhere in the list, we have extended our range to include the newly minted Rosé Prosecco DOC. Bottega has release two new wines in this emerging category, Prosecco Rosé DOC Brut and Poeti Prosecco Rosé DOC, both of which are exclusive to the on-trade through Matthew Clark.
In line with both increased consumer interest and our commitment to social and environmental responsibility, we've once again sought wines from producers that practice earth-friendly and thoughtful winemaking. We've recently added several wines from Chateau Maris in the South of France, who were the first winery in Europe to achieve the comprehensive B Corporation certificate. This includes the Le Zulu Red Blend. It's both organic and sulphite-free but loses nothing in approachability and juicy freshness.
We’re so excited to share our expanded range with you as the industry re-opens and re-builds into something stronger and more dynamic than before.
