And it’s $20.
Not the biggest, probably not the most complex and certainly not the most crowd pleasing, it is nevertheless 100% awesome and right in the sweet spot for me.
This is a super-natural and light wine made from moravia agria and garnacha. It’s hard to believe this is even the same grape that makes so many of the huge, inky–and often delicious–wines currently flooding our markets.
You can read more about the processes this apparently very young and obviously very talented winemaker uses here, but it’s biodynamic fruit that’s fermented partially by carbonic maceration and sees only ancient oak.
It tastes like sweet strawberries and tart cranberries with some herbs and some initial funk that quickly blows off. It’s brisk, light and refreshing but not unserious.
It’s incredible. It’s $20.
