Winemaker / Tasting Notes

The wine is named after St Mary le Bow Church in the City of London—famous, of course, for the big Bow Bell. Many sources put Mary le Bow as the oldest place of Christian worship in England. Many of the Crusades officially left from St Mary le Bow, and of course the remains of the knights who fought and died in the Holy Land were interned in the crypts The Fraters’ ancestors were some of the last people to be buried there, hence the connection. James asked me to make this wine to fulfil his father’s (Kenneth Frater) vision of a wine that “…almost trembled with power, but never needed to flex its muscle to be enjoyed.”

A warm rich deep ruby red in glass with a watery edge. Beautiful complex nose of blackcurrant, persimmon, cassis, mulberry fruits, buchu and juniper, which follow through to the palate. Layer upon layer of flavour reveals rich mulberry, cassis and mocha flavours. Pure elegance
