2021 Beyond Finley Riesling
The 2021 Beyond Finley Riesling is crisp and sharp. Subtle sweetness and refreshingly light but nice and uncomplicated. Pressed as soon as possible, cold fermented, no malolactic ferment. All done in tank.
Contains some sulphur.
After a corporate job in London fell through, Ciarán Hudson, more commonly referred to as Cron was invited to attend harvest in the South of France. It was at a wine tasting event in Le Barroux (in the Ventoux Wine Region /Appellation) with local winemakers where a life-changing wine was poured into his glass, it rocked him, filled him with wonder and made him think long and hard about life.
That moment and that wine sparked what would become Beyond the Glass. Cron and his best mate Maggie (the dog) believe that wine should be accessible, relatable and most of all, fun. So every bottle is vinified with that special love that only a hooman and doggo can share. Because there is nothing that is as pure and gratifying as a dog, but good wine comes pretty close.

What is natural wine?
The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.
Are your wines vegan friendly?
In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.
Are your wines chemical free?
In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
