Love, Tilly Devine’s list boasts an unpretentious range that is chosen with knowledge and insight. The selection of wines is adventurous and broad, and dares you to try something new. After reading through the descriptions of wine styles, regions and a quick refresher on Winemaking 101, there is no style or variety that is out of bounds. Your wine IQ will rise after reading through what sommelier Gabrielle Webster has to say.
The list ranges from very affordable, to super premium, making sure to pause and nod to the great varieties of riesling and pinot noir. The Riesling Top Ten Fact checklist had us chuckling.
There are great and concise collections of Grower Champagnes, pét-nats, orange wines, natural wines, rosés, Georgian wines, a pinot noir focus, and a large cross-section of reds, characterised largely by wines which possess great minerality, freshness, acidity, tannin and vivacity. It’s a who’s who of up-and-coming, passionate wineries that boast cult-like followings – for good reason.
The wine list at Love, Tilly Devine is a goddamn masterpiece and a ripping read.
