2020 Koerner Pigato Vermentino
Clare Valley, Australia

The Koerner brothers, Damon and Jono, are on a mission to bring the classic wine styles of the Clare Valley into the modern day. Vermentino is one of those varieties that really shines with some skin contact and a few winemaking tricks. It adds an extra dimension of appeal. Case in point is this Pigato Vermentino from Koerner wines in the Clare Valley. Vermentino was planted around 10 years ago on the family vineyard in Watervale, a pocket on Terra Rossa soils selected as best for this variety. The wine spent three weeks on skins in concrete open vessels during fermentation before being pressed back to concrete and old oak. Bottled without filtering or filtration. It's a winning style, complete with slightly cloudy and grippy elements. Curious and thirst quenching in equal parts.

2020 Tenuta Macchiarola 'Tippi' Rosato Frizzante
Puglia, Italy

In 2010, after three full years of chemical-free farming, Nico Mangione made his first natural wine with no yeast, no sulfur, just grapes.  Since 2010 Nico has been gaining experience and forging ahead on his natural wine mission. His neighbors look to him as if he were crazy yet he thinks the same thing about them. "The future of Puglia is in natural agriculture", says Nico..."there's no other way forward." Tippi is a fresh and drinkable sparkling wine that comes from Primitivo grapes with the method of refermentation in the bottle. The aromas are fragrant and intense on the nose, while on the palate it is very fresh and balanced. Crazy fun fizz with great bright candied fruit... dangerously crushable!

2020 Altocedro The Phoenician 
Mendoza, Argentina

With its near-desert conditions, extreme elevation and wide diurnal shift, grape vines have proven to thrive in various regions of Argentina. The Phoenician is a blend of  80% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Syrah. Winemaking takes place in concrete tanks with 30% of the wine aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. It has a fresh nose with moderate spices over a core of blackberries. The palate is silky, with blueberry, mineral, shaved chocolate and light espresso character. Full body, integrated tannins and a long finish. Amazing pairing for a juicy T-Bone served with roasted potatoes and red-wine sauce or a roasted shoulder of lamb served with rich, creamy potatoes au gratin.
