2019 Opi D'Aqui L'Abricotier
One of the most revered natural wine producers in the world, Phillippe Formentin has crafted a cult winery in the south of France, celebrated for their no-nonsense approach to winemaking and the resulting wines. This is a velvety, lifted expression of Grenache. The lightest, brightest, and purest Languedoc Grenache we've had in recent memory. 100% Grenache hand-harvested from a vineyard site named " l'Abricotier ". Bottled unfined, unfiltered with no additional SO2.
2018 Béatrice et Pascal Lambert Les Terrasses
This estate has been practicing organic viticulture for over 20 years now and has been using biodynamic preparations since 2005 - becoming certified in 2012. With their trusty draft-horse Isis, they plow the rows between the vines, each year planting different cover crops to assist in the uptake of the biodynamic preparations while adding back nutrients for the following season. They closely follow the lunar cycle from vineyard to cellar, only using indigenous yeasts with fermentation occurring in concrete or wooden vats. Their overall purpose is to accentuate the purity of the terroir from which their vines come, while allowing them to elaborate on their personalities in the cellar. Les Terrasses is a crunchy and expressive Cab Franc from Beatrice and Pascal Lambert - biodynamic and organic. Perfect summer red to wash down your BBQ!
2018 Bodegas Artuke Pies Negros
Artuke is a small winery located in Baños de Ebro, a village in Rioja Alavesa on the banks of the river. In 1991, Roberto de Miguel decided to move away from bulk wine production onto bottled wine. Now his children Arturo and Kike, whose names are the basis of the winery they now lead, are shaping this project, firmly rooted in its surroundings and landscape. This wine is made from Tempranillo with a touch of Graciano. The harvest is done manually and the grapes are picked in the winery on a selection table. After the grapes are destemmed they are trodden with bare feet - a winemaking throwback. Hence the name of the wine which translates to "black feet". Blackberries and liquorice with flowery hints of violets. Earthy, smoky, and balanced on the palate- this is a fresh face lift for Rioja.
