2021 Elios Modus Bibendi Grillo Bianco - Sicily, Italy (750ml)
Made from the oft-neglected Grillo grape, this expressive and textured white comes from Elios winery’s project to create exciting natural wines from varieties indigenous to Sicily. The grapes are grown organically with some biodynamic interventions and ferment spontaneously in stainless steel. The wine is then aged for seven months on the lees, which adds texture and complexity, resulting in a wine that drinks a bit like an orange despite its lack of skin contact. Crisp, dry and medium bodied, with enticing aromas of lime pith, mandarin blossom and balsam, this precise white has gorgeous ripe citrus and stone fruit flavors on the palate and a mineral-driven finish. Serve alongside heirloom tomato caprese or grilled branzino.
2021 Bodegas Ponce La Casilla Bobal - Manchuela, Castilla-La Mancha, Spain (750ml)
100% Bobal from Castilla that's biodynamically farmed, harvested by hand over multiple passes and whole-cluster fermented using indigenous yeasts in used french oak barrels. Floral aromas, black cherry and a savory, black olive note mark this unusually elegant and complex wine that brings out the best of Bobal while retaining its rusticity. Light to medium bodied with low tannins but dry with firm earthy, minerality on the finish. Great with a chill, this is a perfect pairing for classic Paella from Valencia or a white bean stew from Sevilla.
2021 Vin Des Potes Champ Des Barbiers X Les Po(e)tes - Languedoc, France (750ml)
Vin des Potes is a project by two French somms who work with vignerons located in different countries to release a cuvée with a specific profile, terroir and story. Over the years they have collaborated with 13 vignerons who share the same philosophy - organic or biodynamic vineyards and natural vinification. Les Po(e)tes is a light-bodied and lively blend of 55% Syrah, 25% Cinsault, and 20% Tempranillo that leads with a slight petillance, crisp acidity, and pronounced minerality. Notes of smoke and flint culminate in a firm and dry finish, making for a very tasty and honest natural wine. Drink alongside a roasted root vegetables or a wild rabbit or duck terrine for those so inclined.
