The Resident says Pure a “Best Summer Tipple”


The family behind Mirabeau wines used to live in Wandsworth and still sell masses online to the locality.  I love their top end Pure Mirabeau: a pale pink blend of Grenache and more punchy Syrah with wonderful cherry and raspberry flavourings and a smattering of Vermentino to provide delicacy and a hit of white pepper.  It is has good minerality, a hint of garrigue and elegant finesse too. A wine that whispers rather than shouts.

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
