The wines in your box this October:
Keltis - MUFI pet nat
Watch out, this one is explosive! Very tasty pet nat by Keltis, Lower Styria in Slovenia. Very small winefarm where they do everything by hand. This pet nat is made Rumeni Muskat en Rumeni Plavec. Fresh, aromatic, pear and crispy bubbles. Be careful when opening because this wine is very explosive! It is best to cool the bottle well, keep it upright below 5 degrees, hold it at an angle and open it very slowly, or even better: the nail trick. Gently drive a nail through the bottle cap and let the gas escape. Good luck!
New wine since 2019 by Amos Bañeres from Penedès, Spain. This time he blended his Macabeu and Xarello grapes together for a fresh and mineral easy to drink white. The macabeu is direct pressed into fiberglass, the Xarello whole bunch into amfora for 10 days. Blended just before bottling without sulfites. Soft and peachy, with a great acidity, crisp apple and lemon notes. Only 10.5% alcohol.
Domaine de la chappe - Basile
Special Pinot noir from Tonnerre, Burgundy. Vincent Thomas makes wines in Northern Burgundy very near by Chablis. This means his wines are different than what you know about classic Burgundy style. More fresh and mineral and he likes to play a bit with oxidative notes in his wines. Especially for his whites, but also this Pinot can have a soft oxidative note. Furthermore, herbal, blueberries and even minty.
Dry rose made of Blauer Portugieser by Julia and Josef from Nibiru. Kamptal, Austria. New in our assortment!
Grown on schist and loam, pressed in whole bunches without maceration, fermented in steel and aged for 8 months before bottling. Deliciously refreshing and crisp. Light in colour and vibrant with a bit of a fizz! Raspberries!
Philip Lardot - Pinot noir
Spätburgunder of Philip Lardot from Mosel, Germany. 1 week of maceration after picking grapes. Pressed and in barrel for 1 year. Soft and mineral Pinot noir with nice fruit. Interesting to compare the difference in the two pinot's from different areas, Northern Bourgogne and Mosel. ENJOY!
