2020 Quinta do Lagar Novo 5a White Blend
Lisbon, Portugal

Fresh & vibrant alert y'all. A mish-mash of Marsanne, Viognier, Chardonnay and the native Portuguese varietal Arinto, this racy white is balanced and finely textured. There's a harmony of fruity and heavy citrus flavours with a dash of green tea complexity and fresh exotic fruits. There's intensity and lively acidity but with balance and finesse. This is fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks, so no oak for the wood-in-white-wine-averse. Ideal as an aperitif but enough there to go hand in hand with a fresh salad, sushi, steamed and lightly seasoned seafoods or creamy pastas.

2021 Barraco Fior di Bianco
Marsala, Sicily

Nino Barraco's wines come with an uncanny sense of place. With each swirl and sip, they transport you to Marsala; the warmth, the breeze, the golden light and the sense that the sea is never too far away. They are savoury, sun-kissed wines that, like Nino, have a lot to say. From Nino's youngest vines planted over sand, this is mostly Grillo, with a little Catarratto and a touch of Zibibbo in the mix. The grapes were fermented on the skins for just a day, before being pressed off to vats for a short rest. The result is a pretty and perfumed wine that takes you straight to the Sicilian seaside with its citrus, wildflowers, sea salt and brine. A wonderful aperitif that has a natural affinity with anything from the sea.

NV Quebrada del Chucao Brut Cider
Valle del Tolten, Chile

Garagiste unique cider from Tolten Valley in Chile - a picturesque region of extinct volcanoes, lakes and forests, with a continental climate also home to a patchwork of old apple groves established by postwar European settlers. Rivera sources his apples from a roster of three core growers where the short, low yielding trees are aged between 50-80 years old and have always been managed organically. In lieu of specific varietal identification (which is now underway), the apple cultivars carry local names like Gravenstein, Alvarado and Roja Chica – the latter a small, tannic variety Rivera uses for structure. Quebrada del Chucao has also started to plant the Nahrwold farm with massale selections from the finest material. Production is tiny with less than 300 cases. Bottle fermentation gives their ciders super fine/soft bubbles, with some apple sweetness on the palate, but the finish is dry with excellent texture from the apple tannins. This ‘Barrel Aged’ cider has spent some time in oak barrels giving the cider more complexity and a slight hint of vanilla. This cider is a terrific match to cheeses, everything from cheddar to brie and camembert to blue. It's also insanely delicious with Middle Eastern food like hummus, falafel and chicken.
