  • Baglio Bianco Catarratto 2017
    Sicily, Italy
    Catarratto
    "Baglio Bianco is deep amber in colour and unfined and unfiltered. This is a fantastic introduction to ‘orange’ wines both from a flavour and a pricing point-of-view. It receives 3 days skin maceration and has zero added sulphur. Notes of baked apples, cinnamon, nutmeg. The palate is dry, mid-weight, crisp with appealing richness and texture, a touch of skin tannins and those baked apple and spice notes following through. Mouthwatering and slightly savoury/salty on the finish, this would be brilliant with free-range pork rib with apple sauce, with a herby roasted chicken or with cheeses such as Durrus." Le Caveau.

  • Pheasants Tears Shavkapito Kartli
    Shavkapito
    Winemaker Gela Patalashvili grew up in a farming family learning from their grandparents and parents how to grow grapes and make wine in qvevri. Gela, along with John Wurdeman, are helping to preserve the traditional winemaking techniques that have made Georgia a home for viticulture since 6,000 BC. Qvevri were the first vessels ever to be used for wine fermentation, with archaeological finds dating back to 6000 BC. Qvevri are clay vessels lined with beeswax and completely buried under the ground where the temperature stays even throughout the year, allowing the wines to ferment in the natural coolness of the earth. Pheasant’s Tears qvevri vary in age but some date back to the mid 19th century. The cellar is built in the vineyard itself to minimize the damage to the grapes in transportation, allowing harvesting and process before the heat of the day takes effect. In accordance with Georgian traditional winemaking methods, the ripest of stems are added to the grape skins, juice and pits, for both reds and whites. The maceration time depends on varietal and the size of the qvevri and varies between 3 weeks and 6 months.

  • Adega de Penalva Indigena Tinto Dao
    Portugal
    40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz, 30% Jaen
    Perched above the Dão river that snakes its way through granite valleys, the Adega de Penalva is one of the leading cooperatives in the area. The group boasts around a thousand member growers, but it’s important to note that the average holding per member amounts to barely over a hectare. From these small plots they craft simple but delicious wines with a real sense of place

  • Archil Guniava Otskhanuri Sapere Tsolikouri Kvaliti
    30% Otskhanuri Sapere, 70% Tsolikouri
    Archil Guniava Wine Cellar and Vineyard are located in Zestaphoni, Kvaliti Village, at the family home, where generations of the family have lived. Vines are planted across 1.5 hectares of vineyards. This location provides excellent soil structure and a conducive climate for grapes. The vineyard plot is planted to many grape varieties: Tsolikouri, Tsitska, Krakhuna, Otskhanuri Sapere, Dzelshavi, Dondghlabi and Mgaloblishvili, the latter two being very rare and whose reputation Archil is dedicated to restoring. Everything is fermented in old qvevris buried in the marani (cellar). Natural winemaking methods are naturally employed with native ferments and nothing added; normally the wines would be made Imeretian-style with approximately 15% maceration on skins, but in the lighter 2019 vintage they were made without skins (bar the Dondghlabi).

  • Cataldi Madonna Pecorino Terre Aquilane Abruzzo
    Abruzzo, Italy
    100% Pecorino
    Over 10 years of attention to the Pecorino grape has pushed Cataldi Madonna to develop a simple version but only in terms of price. On the nose exuberant aromas of passion fruit and grapefruit. It impresses on the palate with a clear and sharp acidity, very pleasant, and a clean and full body that dangerously pushes to drink.

  • La Stoppa Ageno Bianco Emilia-Romagna
    Emilia-Romagna, Italy
    70% Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, Ortrugo, Trebbiano
    The vines at La Stoppa were worked organically from the early 90s and received organic certification in 2008. Elena, in typical humble fashion, describes herself as ‘la custode de la vigne’, merely a guardian, until she in her turn passes the estate to the next generation. Her low-key, but powerful conviction is that her responsibility is to farm and make wine in as sustainable, non-interventionist and authentic a way as possible. The wines qualify for Colli Piacentini DOC, but are bottled as Emilia IGT because she feels that the rules of the DOC do not allow the authenticity of the terroir to speak. Her stances on the necessity of truly artisan (as opposed to industrial) production, the use of indigenous grape varieties, yeasts and minimal intervention in the cantina have made her a leading voice for devotees of natural, artisanal wine. She featured in Jonathon Nossiter’s 2015 documentary ‘Natural Resistance’.

  • Milan Nestarec Youngster White Moravia
    The Czech Republic
    Traminer, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc
    Milan Nestarec is a young grower based in Moravia, a region in the Czech Republic that lies just 15km from the northern Austrian border. Milan’s father planted the 8 hectares of vines in 2001 across two wine growing municipalities: Moravský Žižkov and Velké Bílovice. This region has a lot in common with Austria, from the loess soils to the grape varieties that flourish here. Milan works with a host of varieties including Riesling, Neuburger, Welschriesling, Pinot Noir and the lesser known Hibernal. The yield is kept low in the vineyards and the focus is always on quality and expressing the full potential of each variety. Milan is a member of the ‘Autentisté’ group - a community of winemakers making authentic wines that strive to express the true character of the land. No herbicides are used in his vineyards and the vines are worked strictly organically. Milan also vinifies everything with indigenous yeasts and bottles without fining or filtration.

  • Bianco de Ampeleia Costa Toscana Tuscany
    Tuscany, Italy
    90% Trebbiano, 5% Ansonaco (aka Ansonica aka Inzolia), and 5% Malvasia
    Ampeleia (from the Greek word for ‘vine’) is owned by Elisabetta Foradori and Giovani Podini. The winemaker and agronomist, Marco Tait has been with the estate since its inception in 2002. It was founded with Elisabetta’s overarching vision of allowing the true nature of an area, its diversity, its grapes, land and culture to be expressed. The wildness of the southern Maremma, bounded by the Colle Metallifere and the sea were virgin territory, far removed from the glamour of Bolgheri and Montalcino. The estate is large and biodiverse with a total of 40 ha of vineyard interspersed with chestnut and cork oak forests as well as Mediterranean scrub. There are three parts, across differing altitudes, with differing soils and microclimates: Ampeleia di Sopra; di Mezzo and di Sotto.

  • Casa da Passarella A Descoberta Branco, Dao
    Portugal
    Malvasia, Verdelho, Encruzado
    This is distinctively Dao, with salty-cold minerality heightened by clean and refreshing acidity. The palate takes you for a walk through the orchard; white peach and custard apple above, melon, wild fennel, and tarragon on the ground beneath. It has weight and texture but is refreshing and clean all at once. A testament to high altitude viticulture in this cool, continental region.

  • Adega Entre Os Rios KomoKabras, Barbanza e Iria
    Spain
    100% Albariño
    Forget what you think you know about albariño. Entre Os Ríos, a family-owned winery on the southwest coast of Galicia, create aromatic, textured examples of this classic variety that are utterly brimming with character. The estate is about 3km from the coast, with terraced vineyards of old vines on granitic soils very similar to the neighbouring Rias Baixas DO. Albariño 'Komokabras' A slang term for someone who’s a bit bonkers, the Komokabras wines are the result of experiments by winemaker José Cruzat with different vessels and winemaking techniques. This one is entirely raised in stainless steel, with half aged on lees with full malolactic, the other half seeing neither. The result is a lovely balance between crisp citrusy notes and a rich, soft texture. Just as expressive as its little sister, but with slightly more depth and greater savoury complexity.

  • Blank Bottle Air Carrots of Pagnol, Paarl
    Palmela, South Africa
    Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris
    A blend of Grenache Blanc from Paarl/Swartland and Wellington, with a dash of Grenache Gris. This wine was taken to the tank and fermented in old French Oak barrels. But then, to add some extra kick in the wine, they also allowed a few days of skin contact on a portion of the grapes. This gives the wine extra grip and texture.
