“I am very interested in agroforestry…not only is it fascinating to see how vines and trees might live together, but it will also help to improve balance - not just in nature, but economically”.

“I am very interested in agroforestry…not only is it fascinating to see how vines and trees might live together, but it will also help to improve balance - not just in nature, but economically”. Earth angel & multi-talented winemaker Saskia van der Horst (originally from New York) moved to London to study photography, shortly after which she began working as a sommelier, then swiftly moved into working with natural & biodynamic producers (including revered winemaker Alain Castex). Saskia has been working her 4.5ha (spanning three villages & terroirs) of organically farmed vines in the South of France since 2013. She also has a penchant for old vine plots, which aid in accenting and demonstrating her thoughtfulness & skill. ‘Lou Pal’ is Syrah from 30-60 year old vines on clay-limestone soils which show their influence through gently angular, prickly mineral edges. All Saskia’s reds are semi-carbonically macerated, fermenting takes place in fibreglass and is then aged in old barriques (large wood barrels). Expertly balanced inky fruits, packed density with relieving white-floral high-tones, spicy black pepper, chalky tannins & zappy acidity corralling the rear of the pack. Share with a pal, whether that be a best bud, a love bug, a divine fur being, or you, yourself & only you.
