2019 Pheasant’s Tears Rkatsiteli
Khaketi, Georgia

Pheasant's Tears is arguably the best known Georgian winery. The name comes from a Georgian tale in which the hero claims only truly outstanding wine could make a pheasant cry. 
This Rkatsiteli is from the Bodbiskhevi vineyard with alluvial brown soil and sandstone, the vines are 45 years old. The wine sees 3 weeks of skin maceration, making it a light fresh orange/amber wine. Fermented and aged in qvevri, the traditional Georgian clay vessel. Unfined, unfiltered and no SO2 added. Notes of dried apricot, black tea and walnuts. This style works lovely served slightly chilled and with meals where there is a lot of variety of flavours, such as Mediterranean, Spanish tapas, mezzo, Mexican and Asian. It's a style that has ethereal notes of a soprano and weighty bass in one voice.

2019 Santini Bourgogne Aligoté 
Auxey-Duresses, Burgundy, France

Chris Santini makes wine with his brothers in the small Burgundian village of Auxey-Duresses, a town with a population of 300. His focus is on producing “vins de soif” wine made to quench your thirst and be consumed with fervour. This orange wine is textural, chewy and puckering. So very refreshing. Lime, alpine herbs, fennel. Lots of all of that. Chalked full of salty minerality. Exceptional length and depth yet insane freshness and vitality. Has such energy and drinkability. Serious orange wine!

2019 Vin Noé Face to Face  
Auxey-Duresses, Burgundy, France

Skin fermented, deeply orange wine from Beaujolais! 100% Viognier from young Californian winemaker Jonathan Purcell who built an impressive resumé working for many years under the legendary Philippe Pacalet. So chewy, so spicy, strong ginger and preserved lemon going on with lots of jasmine and chamomile too.  Texture for days and an almost tonic-like feel too. Zesty, tenacious, and electric. No filtration or fining and no SO2. Crazy town and so incredibly delicious!
