2020 Voštinic-Klasnić Škrlet - Moslavina, Croatia (750ml) - $20

Situated among the rolling hills of Moslavina, in continental Croatia, the Voštinić family has been manually tending their vines for four generations dating back to 1936. It's an ideal microclimate for the obscure, indigenous Skrlet varietal that they focus exclusively on. This wine is light-bodied with brisk acidity and notes of under-ripe peach, lime zest, and green apple. Harvested during the cool, pre-dawn hours and fermented in stainless steel this pure, fresh white is a perfect pairing for flaky fish like cod and haddock but can also cut through the spiciness of Ojingeochae Bokkeum, Korean spicy dried squid!

NV Céline et Nicolas Hirsch Pet'Nat de Gamay - Burgundy, France (750ml) - $20

Originally from Alsace, Celine and Nicholas Hirsch moved to Beaujolais where they currently farm just under 10 acres of the prestigious crus Chénas, Juliénas, and Moulin Á Vent. This Pet Nat comes from 45 year old Gamay in their Chenas vineyard. Fermented with ambient yeast in stainless steel, and only lightly filtered before bottling. It's light to medium bodied with ripe, red berries and chalky limestone minerality. A crowd pleasing sparkler that appeals to both oenophiles and amateurs alike, this pairs wonderfully with anything from a farmhouse Vermont Tarentaise to Mapo Tofu, a spicy Sichuan wok fried tofu.

2019 Domaine Ruet Régnié Les Bois - Beaujolais, France (750ml) - $25

Ruet harvests their modest 2.5 hectare plots of Régnié Les Bois and Chez les Bois earliest, making it the lightest and crispest wine of their Domaine. They believe in Gamay done the old fashioned way, no pesticides, harvest done entirely by hand, and using semi-carbonic maceration in cement and stainless steel tanks. Aromas of geranium yield to fresh raspberry, black cherry and red currant flavors, followed by subtle earthiness and supple tannins. Pair with Momofuko’s spicy fried chicken or mild-to-moderately stinky cheese.

2018 Grifalco 'Grifalco' Aglianico del Vulture - Basilicata, Italy (750ml) - $27

Fabrizio and Cecilia Piccin had been making wine in Tuscany for more than 20 years when they left in search of a new home. In 2004 they settled in Basilicata where they, and now their two sons, grow only one grape; Aglianico. Grifalco owes much of its warmth and complexity to the 10 months the cuvee ages in a mix of used barrique and tonneaux, followed by 8 months in steel and 6 months in bottle. Medium-to-full bodied, with black cherry and black raspberry flavors, giving way to bramble, leather, graphite, and herbs. Pairs perfectly with their local specialty, Spezzatino di Agnello, lamb stewed in an earthenware pot with potatoes, onions, bay leaves and peppers or Korean BBQ.
